The space

Katy's Seaside Cottage is a quaint & cozy 2 bedroom cottage, kitchen stocked with dishes, pots and pans, living room with sliding glass door out to large deck with attached gazebo, 1 bath with walk in shower, bed linens, blankets and towels. Washing machine and clothesline.

Cottage on a quiet dead end street, on 1 acre of land with lots of open grass. Approximately 300 ft. to a small cove with rocky beach that opens up to a number of small islands. This is a wonderful spot to go kayaking or Stand Up Paddle boarding from. With new development in the area my view is now obstructed by a neighbors gazebo. There is still a view of the water from my deck/gazebo and most places in the house.

Wireless Internet and free long distance phone service within the US is available.

The renter will receive the cottage in a clean and satisfactory condition and agrees to leave it in the same condition.

Rental fees (including 8% Maine tax) $875 per week. Rentals run from check in day at 3:00 until the check out morning at 10:00. There is a $50 cleaning fee, although it is expected that the cottage is left in a satisfactory condition. Please ask if you have a pet you would like to bring, but please no cats because I have an allergy.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Katy's cottage. We had never stayed in Deer Isle before and loved the change of pace - it's quieter and just feels more authentic than other areas along Penobscot Bay. We especially loved the access to the cove. We rented kayaks for the week and explored a new area or island every day (even camping one night with our dog!). My husband had to work at times during our stay and cell coverage was difficult with our 2 carriers. Katy was helpful and responsive to anything and everything we asked and her binder of local things to do was really helpful. We hope to come back!

Fantastic stay at Katy's...incredible spot to get in the water and paddle out to the islands! We were lucky to enjoy some of the most gorgeous sunsets on the porch every night!

We had a lovely stay in Katy's cottage. The cottage is so cozy and beautifully decorated, with a hundred little loving and sweet touches, and a great color scheme. The kitchen is bright and charming. We loved grilling fresh fish and eating outside and watching the sunset on the deck. It's a fabulous location as well—very close to Stonington which is a great town with a great beach. We also took the ferry to Isle au Haut which was stunning and drove to Acadia, not far away. But there are lots of beautiful hikes on Deer Isle too. Katy was a great host, very helpful and attentive. Would definitely recommend!

The most amazing Deer Isle experience we could have imagined! Stayed with my wife and our 20-month-old daughter and it was the perfect place for us; right by several great beaches (including the cove just a hundred yards away) and locales across the blue hill peninsula and deer isle. A great home base for kayaking, swimming, farmers markets + cooking, and just hanging out on the gorgeous grounds and by the cove.

We had a great stay at Katy's Seaside Cottage! We were welcomed by a short note and a binder with ideas of things to do and restaurants to try in the area. The area surrounding the cottage was VERY quiet (even on this 4th of July weekend), as well as very dark at night. It was a great chance to really see the stars and fireflies at night! The cottage presented as the listing described and was actually a little BETTER stocked than we had originally planned. If you're planning a time away for quiet relaxation, book reading, and hanging out, this is your place. Also, it is just over an hour from Bar Harbor and Acadia area so it is a very easy and scenic day trip. The local grocery store is adequate, but if you want a large amount of produce and fresh food, I would suggest (as Katy did to us) that you get something on the way in. You can get some good walks, runs, and bike rides in while right around the area there, as well as renting a kayak to put into the water just a short walk in front of the cottage. It is amazing to see the difference in high and low tides!

Katy was very helpful from my first inquiry. The description was accurate. We loved this sweet cottage by the sea! The neighborhood is super quiet and the cove- just a few steps down the driveway, is a magical beautiful place to explore- especially for kids. We shopped at the trade winds in blue hill which was great, and cooked quite a bit, bc stonington is the nearest 'town' with only a couple of restaurants, there's few places to find food elsewhere. We recommend el el frijoles.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Katy's cottage, perfect for a long mother-daughter weekend for 3 of us. And hey! You can see the ocean. There's a little gazebo that gets in the way a bit, but it's still a lovely view from Katy's gazebo. We loved the little vases of fresh wildflowers around the house, the welcome sand pail with sunscreen and bubble soap, and the simple, clean decor, including lots of pretty watercolors. Katy made us feel very much at home with a little welcome note, and was absolutely responsive to all our questions, and was back from her research boat to fix a plumbing problem presto! Deer Isle was centrally located (about an hour's drive from Bangor airport, Acadia and Belfast, all great day trips), with plenty to explore on the island itself! Very reasonably priced for summer time Maine!

I am a traveling scientist and sailor. I teach college students on an unusual platform, a two masted sailing vessel. I love the island I live on and would love to share the wonder of it. The space is quiet and comfortable and is one of my favorite spots. I look forward to sharing it with you!
