Recent Deer Isle Area reviews
"Five friends and I spent a glorious week in late summer at the Stronghold. The house, itself, offered every comfort, convenience, and delight to the eye. We could easily walk all around the town, and we also made enjoyable day trips along scenic and reliable routes. The Opera House offered unique entertainment, restaurants plied us with delectable food, and local galleries and shops, as well as a farmers' and artisans' market, provided opportunities to browse or buy. An adventure on a lobster boat gave us views of the Bay and its nearby islands, along with an informative and personable narrative from the captain. Finally, the warmth of the locals added the icing to the cake."Guest: Carol Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: October 23, 2014View listing
"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."Guest: Sandra S.

"A group of us used this house to do some sea duck hunting for a week and had a great time. The owner was easy to get a hold of for questions and the place was very nice to stay in. We would stay here again!"Guest: Brent Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 15, 2014View listing
"We had a wonderful time at this house. It was new, clean, roomy and had absolutely everything we needed for a relaxing vacation! The porch was wonderful with the water views. Kayaks were also a nice add. Local lobster was great for a dinner at home. Would recommend for anyone wanting a quiet time away from the city."Guest: Southerner Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 30, 2014View listing
