About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (sleeps 11)
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; 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 with TV for viewing movies.
The water side of the house has a deck with glass rails for an unobstructed view and a screened porch.
TV is for movies only. No broadcast or cable TV reception. Internet access via WiFi. Long distance calls off island from land line require calling card.
The access point to our typically Maine rocky beach is marked by a rope around a tree. You'll step down approx. 18" onto sloping rocks and walk down rocks to the beach using a rope, as needed, for a portion of the descent. The elderly and small children will not find this easy access. The difference in elevation between our land and the beach is approximately 12'.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband Greg and I built Woodberry starting in 2002 when we cut trees with the help of his 81 year old Mom, Anne. We opened it for rentals in 2004 as a two floor house with unfinished ground floor. In 2010 we put the finishing touches on the ground floor and the house \now sleeps 11 now. My husband and I honeymooned on Deer Isle and visit every summer to chill out from the rigors of owning our own business.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we love most about visiting Woodberry is the quiet and the fresh fir-scented sea air. Oh ... and the lobsters. We love to hike on Isle au Haut and to Barred Island. Each summer we enjoy seeing the latest offerings by the artists on the island. Kayaking is big now and Old Quarry, a business on Deer Isle, offers rentals and guided tours plus other outdoor activities. Our beach is not suitable for launching, sadly. Sharing the house with friends and family who make the journey north makes for many an enjoyable evening spent chatting or playing games. Or we'll venture down to Stonington to attend an Opera House performance or see a movie. Mostly though it's just reading, relaxing, cooking meals together (seldom have time for that at home) and staring at the heavens on a clear evening, watching for shooting stars ... so many stars.
