This property is a vacationer’s dream. The property consists of a private 11 acre point with nearly 3000 feet of deep-water frontage, two large sand beaches, several pocket beaches, granite ledges, trails through the woods and picture perfect views across Penobscot Bay to the Camden Hills. There are also daily morning and evening flyovers by the neighborhood bald eagle on his way to and from his fishing trips to adjacent Burnt Cove. The house, a sturdy cape with water views from every window, is located approximately 50 feet from the high tide line. A small pocket beach directly in front of the house is a wonderful spot for a quick picnic on the rocks, or you can sit in chairs on the lawn with your feet on the stone wall and take in the spectacular sunsets over the Bay. Entire days can be whiled away on the large sand beach that is just steps from the house.
The house is well-appointed as it is our summer home as well. (We like comfortable beds and down pillows and we suspect you do too.) We rent the house the weeks that we are unable to be there. There is a large eat-in kitchen, a dining room with a fireplace, a large living room with a fireplace, four bedrooms and two full baths (one up and one down). There is a also a very large cushioned window seat in a nook at the front of the house that makes for a great spot to read or watch the goings on out on Penobscot Bay. The downstairs bedrooms have two twin beds and a double bed respectively. Upstairs there is a king-size bed and a set of twin bunk beds. There is also a small room outside the master bedroom with a full-size crib. The house has lots of windows and it is impossible to forget that you are anywhere but on the rocky coast of Maine, even when you are indoors.
The living room has shelves and cupboards full of books, magazines, games and puzzles for all ages, as well as a toy box and a small wooden train set. For outdoor time, there are lawn chairs, beach chairs, a hammock, a large picnic table, sand toys, and a tree fort for the young and the young at heart.
If you need to venture from this wonderful spot, the local grocery store, well-stocked for summer visitors, is just a mile away and Stonington’s Main Street with its shops and galleries is about two miles away. The location of the house also makes it an easy jumping off spot for day trips to Acadia National Park (90 minutes away) or for hopping the Stonington ferry to Isle au Haut to explore its miles of shoreline and hiking trails. Whether you are a bird watcher, a hiker, a cyclist, a sailor, an avid kayaker eager to explore the multitude of islands within an easy paddle of Deer Isle, or a family looking for a great spot to relax and have fun, you will find that this property has all it takes for an idyllic vacation on the coast of Maine.

Television reception is not particularly good. We have purposely not done anything to improve it because we don't want it to hold any allure for our children while we are on Deer Isle. ...morecollapse
