Recent Deer Isle reviews

  • Take a vacation where time is suspended

    "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."

  • Perfect balance of rustic and convenient in wonderful setting

    "The space was well designed to allow cross currents of cooling air, and to bring the family together while offering individual privacy. We loved the books and pictures and specimens collected, which reminded us of our old camp; also loved the hot showers and ample counter space and natural light. Lofty ceilings and mellow wood walls added elegant rusticity. A passel of boys lost themselves on the beach, on the water, in the meadows. We collected the sunsets (different every night) like beautiful beach stones. Everyone wants to come again. Thank you!"

  • Deer Isle retreat

    "My family thoroughly enjoyed our week on Deer Isle while staying at the Pickering House. The house is very historic, filled with antiques and interesting objects, was clean and comfortable, and has a large, well equipped kitchen that was perfect for preparing meals. We enjoyed exploring Deer Isle, both on land and with kayaks, eating local produce, cheeses and of course, lobster! Annie provided accurate and thorough information about the house and the island and was very prompt in getting back to us when we had a question. We would certainly recommend the Pickering to friends and relatives."

  • Peaceful and gorgeous, cozy and convenient

    "What a great spot. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and everything was in working condition. We immediately felt comfortable and at home here. The only minor complaint we might have is that the two smaller mattresses are quite hard; we bought a memory foam pad to put on top of the one we used which solved the problem. The master bed was very comfortable, however. We prefer to cook most of our meals on vacation to save money, and we were able to do so very conveniently here. The kitchen had all the utensils and cookware we needed, and the outdoor grill worked great. The living room holds a gas stove which is operated by a thermostat on the wall. We really enjoyed the ambiance sitting in front of the fire reading in the evenings, and the stove warms up the whole cottage nicely and quickly. The washer and dryer worked perfectly following the owner's instructions. It is a convenient luxury to be able to pack less and return from vacation with no laundry to do. Sitting on the large deck watching the sunset was a favorite activity during our stay. When the wind was making it too chilly to use the back deck, we sat on the small upstairs balcony which is nicely sheltered from the wind. The view is exquisite from both, and even on the rainy days sitting in front of the picture windows looking out over the water was a treat. Though we spent ample time there, during our entire week we only ran into one other person while on the beautiful, pristine beach. We found sea urchins, sea stars, lots of beautiful shells and saw a bald eagle. We were lucky enough to time our stay at Crows Way perfectly for peak foliage, and the view across the water was beautiful painted in fall colors under the midday or setting sun. This is a very peaceful spot, and while somewhat more remote to MDI than other rentals, we found it perfectly satisfied our desire for convenience and solitude. The cottage is located down a quiet dirt road, tucked back in the woods far from any traffic noise or other hustle and bustle. The ride in to Acadia is around 25 minutes. We made several trips there as well as other points on MDI without ever feeling like the cottage was too far away to be convenient. There are a markets convenient to the cottage as well as a Wal Mart close by. Gail was wonderfully professional to deal with, and our deposit was retuned very promptly. Overall we were extremely pleased with our stay, and we hope to return soon. Thanks Gail!"
