Recent Deer Isle Area reviews
"We stayed in August with our 3 year old daughter and had a wonderful vacation. Our daughter could have spent the entire week happily picking the berries on the property. The house is secluded and private, but conveniently located. We walked to town and the farmers' market, and made short drives to Sand Beach, Red Barn Farm, and the wonderful trails throughout the island maintained by Island Heritage Trust. Our daughter loved the model of the quarry operations at the Granite Museum, and we enjoyed cooking in the Forge's kitchen as well as eating out in town. Wilda is a wonderful caretaker of the property. She has great information about Stonington and the island, and she generously gifted us with fresh vegetables from her garden. We will stay at the forge again the next time we visit Maine!"

"First, the property owner maintained excellent communications. All questions were answered promptly.
Second, located on the secluded land, the house was extremely beautiful and private. The property was well maintained. As cooks, we found the kitchen was fully equipped and ready for cooking. It was conveniently located for shopping as it was half way between Burnt Cove Market and downtown Stonington. It was also within a walking distance form the beautiful sand beach and was on a private rocky beach. The photographs were true the their nature.
Third, Stonington itself had variety of restaurants and it was not overrun with tourists, and the Stonington Opera House had a variety of programs.
All and all, the two months we spent in the house were everything we expected.
As a perspective renter who is touring the property said "This is what the coast of Maine should look like"."

"We headed north from Boston after a crazy holiday season and stayed at this lovely farmhouse cottage on Deer Isle. We didn't know what to expect off season, but as we drove over the DI Bridge, and then over the very picturesque causeway that leads to the island, we were already charmed. The farm house exceeded our expectations; well appointed, tasteful and full of country charm. The surrounding pastures and next door conservation lands were beautiful. From the cottage, the winter views of the ocean were spectacular. We cozied up to the wood stove read books and made our favorite meals in the well stocked kitchen. Though the weather was nippy, each day we headed out on a Nature Heritage Trust walk through the woods, or along the ocean front. Beautiful views everywhere. We celebrated New Year Eve at a wonderful restaurant - the Arbor View Inn. This is reported to be one of the best restaurants in the entire state of Maine, and we'd heartily agree. If you want a true Down East experiences this family cottage is the perfect place to spend a week - or maybe two or three?"
