Recent Deer Isle Area reviews
"Our family had a wonderful time - your home away from home was perfect. Housekeeping had the house spotless! This is a great location. We brought kayaks to paddle in the tidal cove, enjoyed the decks, screen porch and lobster delivered to our door by the neighbor. Check out the local food co-op for groceries. We saw fox, deer, eagles and a heron right there. Many hiking trails nearby, especially to Barren island at low tide. Our family with 2 teenage boys had a great vacation. The owners were great to work with. Definitely would recommend this rental."

"This was the perfect place for my husband and I, who live very busy work days all the time to just get away and enjoy peace and quiet. The deck is large and has beautiful views at sunrise and sunset. The house is very clean and functional with all the appliances and accessories you need - just bring your clothes and shop for food. We had a great down time."

"We found this cottage while searching on-line and it was as described and absolutely perfect in lots of ways. The pictures show the place very well, the location and overall description were accurate.
We were looking for a low key, low stress country cottage experience, and this was it. The property has all necessities there for you, including a great set of spices and kitchen tools, making things very relaxing and easy. Lawn games and garden to cut flowers from too.
The owners were quite helpful with emails and lists of suggestions of things to see and do, and you will find library with informational books about local plants, animals, and Maine history related books in the cottage as well."

The best waterfront vacation rental in Stonington Maine
"The best waterfront vacation rental
home in Stonington, Maine is "The Stronghold." We used this home as our central headquarters for our 35th wedding anniversary, family vacation. The owner has gone to great effort to make this home an exceptional beauty and the most memorable resort experience. Standing amongst neighboring, gray siding homes stands this magnificent, recently renovated masterpiece. Located on a private lane on Stonington's waterfront, you are welcomed with an inviting back porch, complete with conversational chairs, windchimes, and croquet for the manicured front or rear yard gaming. The waterfront has a magnificent quarried stone bulkhead and flowering landscaped yard, with two kayaks waiting for you to explore the harbor a nearby islands.
The owner, Sallie Strong, has literally thought of everything. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill are on site waiting for your cooking preference. Typically Maine rentals in this area are austere. However this home has Wi-Fi, multiple TVs with DVDs or cable. The duel kitchens were especially useful for our multi families' food storage, prep and cleanup. The main kitchen even has a trash compactor. There are multiple indoor and outdoor rooms for relaxing, watching the lobster boats in the harbor, and enjoying leisurely or formal meals.
We admired the decorating as every niche had a unique curio, painting, photo or nautical artifact to admire. The bright room colors and comfortable beds were specially inviting.
We have rented four different homes on Deer Isle in recent years. While this home was the most expensive to rent, it was by far the best value. Given the ideal location, the amenities, and the overall experience, I would highly recommend it."
