A perfect quiet getaway near the sea. Your sunny southwest-corner room has two twin beds, hardwood floor and three windows. You have your own breakfast room and deck. Stroll to Eggemoggin Reach and Scott's Landing Preserve or kayak to nearby islands.

The space

Our summer home is a peaceful retreat near Deer Isle and Stonington, both fishing towns that have retained their old-world Downeast Maine charm.
Your bedroom faces east and is on the second floor. The room is quite spacious with a comfortable pineapple post double bed, bureau, wicker chaise lounge and closet, and a view of the backyard, barn and woods. We provide wireless Internet. There is a small deck outside for guests ~ a perfect place to relax after a day exploring the island.

Guest access

Guests have access to: a refrigerator, toaster and coffee/tea machine, plus cards/games in the downstairs guest room; a guest bathroom with shower, also downstairs; a small deck outside. We provide a simple kayaker's breakfast of toast & jam/organic blueberry muffins, oatmeal and coffee.

Interaction with guests

Peter or Christine will be available to greet you and answer any questions you may have.
Please CALL/TEXT your arrival time so we'll be here to greet you!
Be sure to let us know what you'd like for breakfast.

Peter and Christine are a lovely and well-travelled couple so we felt at home right away. They have a cute little country house and all was very nice and clean. Good breakfast, great coffee, nice little terrase to sit outside in a quiet garden. And, if you wish, Peter has kayaks and takes people on tours, unfortunately we haven't made use of this but I think it really is worth it as he seems like a great guide! Highly recommended if you visit the area and look for the local feeling, away from the touristy Bar Harbor, etc. Thanks again!!!

Peter and Christine have a great location at the northern tip of lovely Deer Isle. They were very welcoming and informative, but allowed privacy. Peter was kind and flexible about our delayed arrival. He has a kayak touring service that sounds very interesting and draws guests from all over. The bedroom (clean, bright and nicely furnished) is on the second floor and the guest bathroom on the first, mentioned just as a reference for those with "aging bladders". There is a private guest room for reading/breakfasting on the first floor and a deck. This was a great spot from which to enjoy 3 days exploring Deer Isle and Isle au Haut.

Our host greeted us at the door, explained everything to us related to our accommodation, and helped us settle our things in the room. He and his wife were friendly and made suggestions of things we could do in the area. We enjoyed the nice walk at Scott's Landing. Breakfast was always ready early and exactly as described by our host.
