“Peaceful Retreat”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2016

Secluded location. Huge yard for our dog to romp and play. Beautiful deck overlooking the bay with many wonderful sunsets framed between the trees. We did not see anyone on the beach the 8 days we were there! Where else could you have a private beach to enjoy. The baby birds in the eves out front will add even more beautiful songs to enjoy. Thank you for a relaxing vacation. Well worth the drive, but next time I think we will fly.

“A Veritable Gem”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

This place is truly a gem. The house itself has such a welcoming, relaxed feel to it, and is so very comfortably furnished. It was perfect for me as a writing/art/meditation/solitude retreat AND as a gathering place for good family together times. If you want to be especially active, there's plenty to do around the island, but you don't have to go anywhere at all to enjoy being immersed in the beauty of nature, overlooking the sea, spectacular sky-scapes, wildlife, and being awed by the clarity of trillions of stars visible in the night sky. Plenty of room! Plenty of comforts! Everything you need is provided, including plenty of peace and quiet! My family and I enjoyed it immensely.

Owner's reply: Laura, I am so grateful for the kind words about our Deer Isle property. I hope you make it up to Maine again in the future and consider another stay at our place. Warmly, Catherine

“great escape”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

Very private relaxing escape. Planned last minute and was more than expected. Nice to be able to get away from the crowds and sit and watch the lobster boats off the rocky bluffs. Even had kayaks but was too lazy to take to the beach. The lobster pot was vey handy for dinner at home. Enjoyed beach combing and watching bald eagles and osprey as well as the neighborhood hares.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed our Deer Isle cottage and thanks for the great review!

“Glorious Deer Isle”

Our 15th year on Deer Isle and once again a dream...The house was great! Magical sunsets, great lawn for bocce, kayaking in your backyard, seals in sight, osprey above... who could ask for more. Thanks for a great week.

Owner's reply: Thanks Carol!

“Sublime...”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2009

Sometimes the best vacations are the ones done impulsively! Determined to break free from the stresses of our hectic lives, we found this gem of a place on the internet ... and to our surprise, found so much more than what we could see in pictures on the net. Aside from the rustic qualities of the house and its lovely deck, one has fantastic Westerly views with magnificent sunsets. The walk down to the beach if a hoot with its staircase and the otters, porpoises, bald eagles, fox, and (of course...) deer make for an amazing experience. Each of us took turns kayaking on the mostly tranquil waters to offshore islands. The property is peaceful and private. In the evening, one sees a few billion starts and some shooting across the night's sky. Deer Isle is a wonderful escape into a more innocent time. Almost like stepping back into the 1910s... Feel free to e-mail me with questions! =)
