Property description

Travel back to a simpler time in our family friendly island cottage, a fully renovated 19TH CENTURY FARMHOUSE with PANORAMIC OCEAN VIEWS, surrounded by meadows, an orchard, stone walls, 24 acres of conservation land and TWO OCEAN BEACHES.

Our THREE+ BEDROOM HOME comfortably sleeps five, in a queen room, a double room, and a smaller room with a single bed and trundle which is reached by a back staircase. The second floor full bath has a shower stall and an antique claw foot soaking tub. The half bath is on the first floor. A brand new Danish wood stove creates a cozy hearth in our open plan living room, where antique French doors open on to a small porch looking out over the orchard and ocean views.

At the northern tip of beautiful Deer Isle, our farm is a short two minute walk to the ocean beach and public boat launch, a short bike ride to Deer Isle Village, and a short drive to several farmers markets, fresh seafood, all the amenities of Stonington and Blue Hill.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband is an artist and I am a filmmaker and our island home reflects our interests. My husband has turned our barn into a work shop and artist studio and we both cherish the community of artists, crafts people, artisans and writers on the island. Our two daughters fell in love with the farm right away, and look forward to our times there to catch up on reading, on beach combing and long lazy afternoons watching the sail boats and fishing boats pass by.

Why the Owner Chose Deer Isle:
Our family has vacationed in the beautiful Acadia region for twenty years and we know the area intimately. When we saw this unique property, we knew we'd found our home away from home. As busy city dwellers, the beauty and tranquility of Deer Isle offers a respite from our urban routines. As we drive over the Deer Isle Bridge, and the rocky Causeway that brings us to our land, the city falls away and peace reigns. The island offers a nature retreat, an ocean lover's paradise, and a community of people who care about arts and crafts, good food, conservation and the outside life.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Every window in our cottage looks out onto beauty - the ancient apple tree in the front of the house, the thriving fruit orchard, and the panoramic ocean views. During the days, the porches provide the perfect spot for reading that novel you've been saving, or sipping sun tea and eating the fresh baked goods from the local, organic farmers market. The views inspire the artist in all of us, and the fresh air and quiet feed the soul. A great spot for day dreaming and star gazing. Challenge your friends and family to one of our classic lawn games, or at the day's end, play Monopoly, Clue or Taboo around the glowing wood stove. The out buildings and sweeping lawns create a sense of your own small family compound and retreat. Enjoy great natural beauty and the many amenities of the area, or stay put and relish the rare charms of a life on a saltwater farm.
