This is a quaint New England farm house with a large meadow backing up to a quiet cove. Very quiet & peaceful, with lots of room for our 2 young dogs to run, play & swim. At low tide you can dig for clams, and at high tide you can canoe or swim in the surprisingly warm water right behind the place. We enjoyed campfires in the back yard at night, cooked on the charcoal grill, and perused the impressive and varied assortment of books all around the house. Close by are wonderful hiking trails in the several properties of the Island Heritage Trust. We saw several deer on & near the property, and an eagle flew low right over the meadow on our last day there! The owners kindly provided us with a list of tips for places to go while on Deer Isle. I'd add to that: don't miss the Farmers' Market in Stonington on Friday, there is a lobster pound 3/4 mile down the road, and stop by as many of the working art galleries around the island as you can find open. This is not the place to vacation if you are looking for spectacular night life, arcades, and chain restaurants! But if you want a beautiful space for a peaceful, refreshing vacation for you & your family (and your energetic dog!), then this is your place.
