About the Property
- 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2
The perfect place:: This mother-in-law apartment is the perfect place to forget the world and its stresses. As you sip coffee on the balcony, reading your favorite book or paper, you can hear the sea gulls on the beach and the wind in the trees.
Don't like to relax? Paddle a kayak or row the boat around Stave Island or along the shore of Eggemoggin Reach. Be sure to watch for the starfish on the rocks at the point of Stave Island and elsewhere. Most couples who stay for a week, wish they could stay for two.
The perfect island: Little Deer Isle and Deer Isle are actually two islands joined by a causeway. The communities are marvelous. You have the opportunity to watch fishermen on the job and arts of all types. The arts are such an important part of the island community that it was easy to raise private dollars to add a performing arts theater to the new elementary school. The Reach Center for the Arts is a state of the art auditorium and is used by the school and the community to produce and provide live performances of all types. It is fun to see your local doctor, child, or fisherman performing in such productions as 'Little Orphan Annie.' At least four full plays are performed every year along with many music venues including jazz. The Stonington Opera House also provides nightly entertainment through movies, plays, and performances of all types. This year, the Opera House and the Reach Auditorium have received a Kennedy Center for the Arts grant to further expand their performances and offerings.
Other offerings: Haystack School of Art, Seamark School, and several local artists offer classes in glass blowing, metal sculpture, painting, pottery, etc., etc. Authors provide book readings, individuals from around the world provide lectures and learning opportunities, Ocean Adventures and others offer boat and kayak rentals, and there are at least six walking trails provided by various groups and individuals. There is absolutely no opportunity to come to this area and be bored.

Parents have brought sleeping bags or air mattresses, and had the children on the small living area floor. The beach is perfect for children and adults. The apartment is attached to our home (just my husband and myself here with two cats), and it is over an unused portion of the house, with a separate entrance up a set of stairs. It is totally private, and has been used for a honeymoon getaway a few times. Lots of local artists and artisans, local music, ocean, boating, kayaking, hiking trails, quaint rural atmosphere....moreless

The apartment is actually more to the east than the marker - right on the ocean. Little Deer Isle and Deer Isle are connected to the mainland via a beautiful suspension bridge. Eggemoggin Reach is known around the world as one of the most spectacular locations for sailing. From the deck, front lawn, pier, or beach, you can be entertained all day long with the various makes and models of boats that sail or motor by. If you are more into sight seeing, you can drive around the islands where there is a picture perfect spot at each turn. You will be impressed by how many artists and artisans there are who are selling their wares from their own homes or barns. Haystack School offers courses in various art media including metal work, glass blowing, water paint, etc. The town of Stonington is a working fishing village where you will marvel at the town pier, the quaint shops and the wonderful selection of restaurants. Blue Hill, on the mainland, is a favorite spot for many travelers.
