Deer Isle house description

New custom-built house on 2+ acres in private, waterfront setting. Three bedrooms; two with queen beds, one with twins. Fully equipped kitchen with KitchenAid stainless appliances and lots of counter space for the cook in the family. Home offers two dining areas: an indoor area and a screened porch. The forest setting is quiet and serene. The tidal shorefront provides views of the cove and the open ocean. A 40 ft deck on the back of the house overlooks the water and offers a private perch for sun bathing, reading, grilling, clambakes and cocktails. Full size laundry located in the basement.

Bring your kayaks and launch right from the property's edge. The island offers golf, tennis, many hiking trails and gorgeous sunsets. Haystack Mountain is a renowned art school on the island. Deer Isle/Stonington has a thriving network of artists and galleries. It's a short ferry boat trip to Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park, which itself is about 90 minutes drive.

Tides End History

Though Eaton is the most common name on the island this Eaton family hales originally from Winchester, Massachussetts. Paul and Betsy Eaton discovered, and fell in love with, Deer Isle, in 1993. Over several years they purchased two houses and the land where Tides End is now.

The Tides End lot was purchased in 2003. Construction began in 2005 and was a therapeutic labor-of-love for Paul. Despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer he was determined to build the house himself. Paul worked on Tides End until the last weeks of his life. The house was completed in November of 2007. Paul died in December, 2007 satisfied that his last project was complete.

Paul’s love of Maine’s rocky coast was boundless. There are few mid-coast hiking and skiing trails he didn’t enjoy over the last 30 years. When not on land Paul was on the water where he was an avid kayaker. Guests of the Eaton’s enjoyed requisite kayak tours from Paul. He often said that he was happiest while on the ocean with his family and friends.

Today, Tides End is kept open to guests from all over, by the efforts of Betsy Eaton, Barry Eaton (son), and Jeannette Eaton (daughter).
