We love Deer Isle, and this cottage was just the right size. While we stayed 2 weeks, our 14 year old grand daughter joined us for a week. Once the dryer was fixed, everything ran smoothly. The weather was great, so drying clothes on our gerryrigged lines worked. My two complaints: no dishwasher, and no baking or serving dishes. It’s a very basic kitchen with very little counter space.
BUT killer views, sunsets, eagles, you can smell the pines, and you wake to only the sound of birds.
Over the top great location at the end of a dirt driveway, in remote woods, on a cliff over the Bay with awesome water views from inside the cottage and from the deck and yard. A photographer and beach walkers dream as it's right over the tidal beach. (Altho you have to walk a long stairway to get down to beach - it's worth it) Close drive to Deer Isle Village ant 10 minutes drive to larger more happening town of Stonington, lobster capital of Maine. Whole region is a delight. We will return and would love to rent this cottage again.
