About the Property

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 11 on Penobscot Bay

Woodberry is a comfortably furnished three story house. A living room with fireplace; dining area w/ table for 8 plus additional seating for 3 at a side table or island; large, well-equipped kitchen with island and 3 stools; master bedroom (queen) and a full bathroom fill the first floor.

Two bedrooms (2 twins, 1 queen) and one full bath are upstairs. A baby layette, collapsible crib, high chair and baby gates are available. A large bathroom is shared by these two bedrooms.

Lower level (walkout) has two bedrooms (2 twins, 1 bunk bed & 1 day bed), bath with shower and twin sinks, laundry area and a family room.

The water side of the house has a deck with glass rails for an unobstructed view and a screened porch. The house is wheelchair friendly with entrance ramp and 3' wide doors on first floor; not legally handicap accessible.

TV/DVD/VHS for movies only. Internet access via WiFi. Long distance calls off island require calling card.
The access point to our typically Maine rocky beach is marked by a rope around a tree. You'll step down about 18' onto sloping rocks and walk down rocks and rocky steps to the beach using a rope as a handhold. The elderly and small children will not find this easy access. The difference in elevation between our land and the beach is approximately 12'.

We accept payment by check and plastic.

Car: Necessary

Woodberry is located on the NW side of the island. Beautiful sunsets. Our cottage is set off the road about 800 feet so you don't see or hear cars on Dunham Point Road.

Our area is typical Maine woods with mostly summer residences tucked away along the shore. We have one neighbor within view, but are unaware of their comings and goings.

A 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk will bring you to the Deer Isle Yacht Club dock at Sylvesters Cove. During the summer you can sit and watch fishing boats come and go and meet local summer residents. There's a tidal pool to the right near the beginning of the dock's boardwalk that's fun and safe for toddlers.

We are members of the Deer Isle Yacht Club. If you wish to use the club facilities for kayaking or to dock your boat you may acquire a Tenant-Charterer membership through us for your rental period. The cost is $310.

Other Activities: mini golf

Golf/Tennis: Island Country Club (public 9 hole course) 10 minutes from house
