About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6), on the water

Completed in 2005, this private home is located on quiet, scenic Long Cove, on the water. The property has 350 feet of shore line. A small stream runs down one side of the property and empties into a pretty inlet to the right of the house. Seals, bald eagles and fishing osprey are often seen from the porch along with other shore birds and wildlife.

The 1600 sq. ft. house is built on an open plan. Downstairs holds a large family room/kitchen/dining area, and a separate combined master bedroom/bathroom/laundry suite that opens on to a deck. A second bathroom and bedroom have recently been added. Rooms feature solid quarter sawn white oak flooring.

The bedrooms, kitchen and living areas look out on tidal Long Cove in the direction of the sunrise that, from the queen size bed in the master bedroom, can be absolutely breathtaking. Upstairs holds a very large, open bedroom with two single and one double bed.

Across the 'reach' is Blue Hill, which lends itself to a good hiking challenge. Cruises are available that take visitors around the islands as well as to Vinalhaven, North Haven and Isle au Haut. The latter island is part of Acadia National Park and offers some pleasant hiking.

Take a vacation where time is suspended

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this little woodland cottage for 2 weeks in September. We were delighted at every turn. The cottage is very comfortable and the owners have thought of every single thing anyone would need away from their own homes. The scenery on a very secluded cove was spectacular. It was hard for us to leave. We certainly hope to return here in years to come. The owners were very attentive and cordial in all our dealings with them.

Comfortable, well-appointed accommodations for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just perfect for our family of 5 (but could certainly accommodate a few more guests). We visited Deer Isle for a big annual family reunion and have always stayed in one of the inns on the Island previously - having more space to cook, explore, and relax was a wonderful change! The property is centrally located yet quiet and secluded. The house itself is really lovely, with gorgeous views of the water from every room. We enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen to prepare meals and appreciated that the owners provided everything we needed. Our kids had a blast in the upstairs bedroom with their own TV and loved taking the kayaks out in the cove. We had a wonderful week, and we hope to return!

Perfect for a Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our family and friends (us + 2 other couples) for the last two summers. We spent our days hiking or canoeing and returned most nights to eat dinner together in the dining room with a large picture window overlooking the water. It's a gorgeous property and they just added a new bedroom and bathroom, so it had plenty of space for our group. We look forward to returning to this house on Deer Isle for many summers to come.

A Wonderful Escape

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review; your kind comments are much appreciated. I should add that, since this review was posted, we have added a second bathroom and a third bedroom to the house, so the issue with the single bathroom has been resolved.
