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.
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.
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.
