  • A Wonderful Escape

    "This property is everything described above. It is in a lovely location and is extroadinarily clean and well equipped. However, it is not suitable for 2 couples or even for a family with children as the only access to the bathroom is through the master bedroom. And while it is waterfront, it is not easy to reach the water so other locations are needed to launch a boat or kayak."

  • Best view in town!!! And direct waterfront access and kayaks!

    "Such an amazing house - layout, location, amenities - all of it contributed to our relaxing and fun-filled family vacation. We visited with our 2 kids (3 and 5 years old) and their grandparents. Kids loved running around the back deck/porch that wraps around half the house. Sunset dinners on the deck. Lobster feast with fresh lobsters from the lobster co-op - 2 lobster pots and as many shell crackers and pick you could need. Kayaking among the sleeping lobster boats at sunset with the gorgeous "Stonington light." Just sitting in the living room, facing the harbor, and watching the graceful action on the harbor - meditative. Master suite is spacious and set apart from the other bedrooms which are located on the 2nd floor. Plenty of places in the house for sharing a family meal - in the dining room, the breakfast area, table on the back deck, picnic table on the dock. And, plenty of places to kick back and relax around the house - reclining chairs on the back deck, daybed in the front of the house, comfy living room sofa, additional living room chairs. All times of day are beautiful times of day at this house - don't miss the amazing stars in the night sky! Walk to everything on Main Street including the excellent restaurant Aragosta. Two doors down from the Factory Tavern restaurant which makes it convenient to try to secure a last minute reservation. A few steps up the hill from the Isle Au Haut mailboat ferry to secure your 'first come, first served" ferry tickets in the morning. A short drive to Sand Beach (so much more than your typical beach - be sure to check it out), Barred Island (magical hike through moss carpeted woods to the island - go around low tide (+/- 3 hours), and take the kids to Nervous Nellie's - in addition to making and selling jam, there's entertaining and eccentric art on a life-sized scale. Also, a short drive to sailboat rentals (and other vessels) at Old Quarry Adventures. A short drive to Burnt Cove Market for groceries. We spent 2 weeks in Stonington, the 2nd week in this house - could not have been better. Make sure to take advantage of the kayaks - sunset is the best time of day - no traffic in the harbor, beautiful setting, seal spotting. Plenty of lifejackets provided for adults and kids. We've stayed in many vacation rental houses over the years in different areas of the country for family vacations and this was definitely one of the best!"

  • Magical

    "What a treat to stay in a rented property and have no unpleasant surprises. If only all VRBO would follow the McMillan example, renting wouldn't be the nightmare it so often is. We enjoyed a week in this beautiful location and could not have wished for more."

  • A Perfect Slice of Heaven

    "The Stonington Guest Cottage exceeded our expectaions. The space is delightful as were our hosts, Doug and Leslie. We found the cottage immaculate, spacious with fine amenities including fresh flowers picked from the lovely garden waiting for us as we arrived. Our week was a perfect mixture of relaxation, exploring the town and Deer Isle. We we took part in the local culture attending a dance at the Stonington Opera House and enjoying a string quartet and a quaint church. We hope that other guests will find the harbor view from the screened in porch and deck as romantic and peaceful as we did. Leslie gave us great restaurant tips and we found the restaurants very reasonable in price with delicious food. A perfect slice of heaven without the large numbers of tourists. Thank you Doug and Lesle for sharing your special cottage with us."

Many people keep Deer Isle vacation homes as welcome retreats from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

When staying in Deer Isle rentals, make the escape to Bar Harbor and explore the lovely little town. A stop at the Bar Harbor Historical Society is a must as is a visit to the Abbe Museum and Village Green.
