Little Deer Isle house description

About thirty years ago, our parents created a dreamy vacation house on Little Deer Isle in a gorgeous, secluded corner of Penobscot Bay.

Facing south from the southeast corner of Little Deer Isle and perched on a short bluff, Loon Ledge has an extraordinary view of water, islands, sky, and mountains. From the large deck where we spend most of our time, you initially look out on the Barred Islands and a tiny harbor to the right. Next, you see the dozens of islands that comprise East Penobscot Bay, including the Eagle Island Lighthouse, Pickering Island (haunted?), and North Haven in the distance. Behind this scene rise the Camden Hills, framing the seascape under deep blue skies. Many peaceful hours have been spent in wonder at the magic of this scenery.

The simple, yet beautiful home getaway boasts an open floor plan with insulated post-and-beam construction, a large deck, and lots of room in any season. The large main room serves as the kitchen, dining room, and living room. A cozy, den, the master bedroom, another bedroom, and two bathrooms are on the first floor. There are two bedrooms and a bath on the second floor. The washer and dryer are in the basement.
