Stonington house description

Peaceful, quite getaway, ideal for couples and small families. Beautiful home on an equally beautiful salt water cove in Town of Stonington, on Deer Isle, in the well-known sailing paradise of Penobscot Bay. Surrounded by 7 acres of evergreen forest, in a small, quiet area 5 miles from downtown Stonington. House was designed by noted Blue Hill architect Robert Knight and is abundantly sunny and airy, with over 50 windows or skylights.

Internet access thru MIFI and Dish TV. Top of the line fixtures in kitchen and baths. Shower in Master bath is exceptional with beautiful views of the forest. Pets allowed only with owner's permission. Deer Isle is what Julia Child referred to as 'true Downeast Maine' when she often vacationed near our home. With lobster and seafood galore!

Sea Kayaking can be done right from the property's edge (2 boats available). Island has small golf course, tennis, many hiking trails, freshwater pond, and gorgeous sunsets. Haystack Mountain School of Arts and Crafts is a renowned workshop facility on the island. 90 minutes from Acadia National Park. It's a short ferry boat trip from Stonington to Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park.

Deer Isle is also well know for its artist community, with many wonderful galleries and antique shops.
