About Earle

As a widower, I still enjoy living here,but summer months are for sharing.My family lives nearby so we have excess housing.

Earle purchased this chateau / country house in 1994

Why Earle chose Cummings Cove

Our family came to Deer Island, for a short business trip, 30 years ago. The business is done,but our life on this small island continues to grow. We think the uniquely high tides attract and nurture life of every sort,and uplift all,including the human spirit.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We built this house as our final retirement home,and made it special with the location on a hill overlooking the ocean and beach, a southern view,sunrises,sunsets, fishing boats,sailboats,marine life and a relaxing setting.

It took 2 years to construct because getting it right was important. It is still a happy house to be enjoyed by people who love life and the living.

Castle on the Hill

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 4 nights in this charming yellow castle on the hill while vacationing on Deer Island. The property was spacious and superbly accomodated our needs for family celebration.

During our stay our host was readily availble to fix minor problems and to help us decide how to spend our time while in the area. We highly recommend the whale watching tour with Wade!!

Thank you for a lovely experience, we look forward to visiting again in the future!

Beautiful home with a fantastic view of the water!!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing peaceful weekend for our group of 6 ladies!! Earle, the owner, met us at the house, gave us a tour and told us to enjoy! The view of the ocean from the sunroom is breathtaking! The house is very well equipped with everything needed to live comfortably. I am sure we will return for another relaxing weekend/vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks Elve, we like to rent 2 or 3 nights most months while July and August are reserved for week- long folks. Deer Island is a great place to enjoy gentle nature that nurtures the soul. Hope you find us again
