Deer Isle and Stonington is a lovely island connected to the mainland by a green suspension bridge. Our island is an outdoorsmens dream. Kayaking, sailing, biking, boating, hiking and sightseeing are just some of the great things to do on our small and amazing island.
About the owner: I am a retired restauranteur who as a youngster sailed with my grandfather from Massachusetts to Maine many times. When I sold my restaurant, my wife and I headed back to a more simple life. We use woodstoves to heat our house, my wife's studio and the cottages. Until quite recently, I split and stacked all the wood. I read a lot and quite a collection of books. My wife has her studio nearby and she likes to paint winter scenes and in other seasons. In the Fall, we take our dog bird hunting for partridge and woodcock. My wife's a crack shot, so I have to mind my P's and Q's. Mostly, I like to sit on our deck in the sun and look out at the harbor view. In winter we may get the occasional power failure, so we trot the candles and of course we have the woodstove going.
Why the Owner Chose Stonington, ME, USA:
We bought the property from a retiring schoolteacher mostly to save it from being torn down and rebuilt as a modern structure. My artist wife had done paintings of it in winter and we were charmed by the unique detailing of the cottages. We wanted to keep that "Stonington flavor" for as long as possible. My wife painted the interior in bright colors a la the Swedish painter Carl Larsson.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You may enjoy seeing the wildlife. Deer, fox, rabbits,partridge, coyotes occasionally come around and watching the red cardinals feeding on the beach plums. In summer, the huge schooners sailing by or into the harbor is an extraordinary sight. Being able to walk places in town is a big plus...to the post office, the restaurants, bank, town office and opera house. The boat ramp is close by. The Granite Museum is a great place to learn about the history of this quarrying town. Hiking is a good way to explore the area.
