Deer Isle - Stonington House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 2 baths, screened porch, deck, private tidal cove

New custom-built house on 2+ acres in private, waterfront setting. Three bedrooms; two with queen beds, one with twins. Fully equipped kitchen with KitchenAid stainless appliances and lots of counter space for the cook in the family. Home offers two dining areas: an indoor area and a screened porch. The forest setting is quiet and serene. The tidal shorefront provides views of the cove and the open ocean. A 40 ft deck on the back of the house overlooks the water and offers a private perch for sun bathing, reading, grilling, clambakes and cocktails. Full size laundry in basement.

Kayaking begins right from the property's edge (Please bring your own boats). The island offers golf, tennis, many hiking trails and gorgeous sunsets. Haystack Mountain is a renowned art school on the island. Deer Isle/Stonington has a thriving network of artists and galleries. It's a short ferry boat trip to Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park, which itself is about 90 minutes drive.

Your Host Family: Though Eaton is the most common name on the island this Eaton family hales originally from Winchester, Massachussetts. Paul and Betsy Eaton discovered, and fell in love with, Deer Isle, in 1993. Over several years they purchased two houses and the land where Tides End is now.

The Tides End lot was purchased in 2003. Construction began in 2005 and was a therapeutic labor-of-love for Paul. Despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer he was determined to build the house himself. Paul worked on Tides End until the last weeks of his life. The house was completed in November of 2007. Paul died in December, 2007 satisfied that his last project was complete.

Paul’s love of Maine’s rocky coast was boundless. There are few mid-coast hiking and skiing trails he didn’t enjoy over the last 30 years. When not on land Paul was on the water where he was an avid kayaker. Guests of the Eaton’s enjoyed requisite kayak tours from Paul. He often said that he was happiest while on the ocean with his family and friends.

Today, Tides End is kept open to guests from all over, by the efforts of Betsy Eaton, Barry Eaton (son), and Jeannette Eaton (daughter).

Thanks, Dad...

QUALITY & LOCATION

Quality & Location
  • 5 of 5
Our family spent two weeks in this delightful location June 2011. The property is architecturally very well done, and the construction, finishes and furnishing are all top notch. This is a high quality place! We enjoyed being in the middle of Deer Isle, away from the traffic near the town centers but no more than 15 mins from anything we wanted to do.

Our young kids really enjoyed the cottage and had a great time roaming the property. The private dock is a great way to end a day as a family, roasting marshmallows or just enjoying the sunset.

This is my fifth trip to the Deer Isle area and I highly recommend this property. The Eaton family has created something very special here.

TIDES END IS ENJOYING MAINE AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 delightful weeks at Tides End from July 24-Aug 14, 2010.The cottage is centrally located on Deer Isle off of Rt 15 about half way between Stonington & Deer Isle Village. The house is located on a seclude wooded lot overlooking a tidal cove. The home is very comfortably furnished & is equipped with a flat screen satelite TV & high speed internet. The kitchen is spacious with modern appliances and all the amenities one could want with the exception of an automatic ice maker. There is seating for 6 in the inside dining area as well as on the screened porch. A deck, running the length of the house, overlooks the water and is perfect for happy hour celebrations or relaxing with a book. A 2nd waterfront deck along the water provides beautiful views of the inlet. There is a gas grill on the deck & a propane lobster/clam steamer on the patio below the deck. Picking out your own lobsters on the dock at the Co-op in Stonington and steaming them at the cottage is an awesome dining experience!

There are 5 good resaurants within a 15 minute drive. While there are 2 small grocery stores nearby, the closest super market is in Blue Hill, about 30 minutes away. Deer Isle is about 1-1/2 hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and the main part of Acadia National Park. It is a picturesque area with lots of arts and crafts studios & home to the acclaimed Haystack Mt. School of Arts & Crafts. Fun things to do on Deer Isle and the nearby Blue Hill peninsula include Monday night steel band concerts, Old Opera House productions at the old quarry, hiking on Isle au Haut, sail boat charters, scenic boat tours, Friday morning farmers' market, eating lobster rolls at Bagaduce Lunch in N. Brookfield (2008 James Beard winner), and, of course, beach combing Deer Isle's many coves and causeways.

It was the perfect get-away for us along with friends from California & Delaware. A stay at Tides End is enjoying Maine as it was meant to be!

WONDERFUL PLACE TO VISIT AND BRAND NEW

  • 5 of 5
Our group stayed here for a week early June of 2010. Very nice cottage, everything was brand new and plenty of modern amenities. The view from the dock was quite beautiful. Best cottage we've visited and we'll definately come again. Highly recommended.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two children and I had the most wonderful time at this lovely island retreat. We highly recommend it to all visiting the Deer Isle/Stonington area.

This home is immaculate - new construction, very private property, great kitchen and dining area with high-end stainless steel appliances, large bedrooms with water views, large deck and screened-in porch overlooking the water and full-sized laundry.

We enjoyed the friendly town, beaches, hiking areas and access to the water right on the property. It was great being able to watch our children play in the water right from the deck.

Additionally, we cooked fresh lobster, crab, clams and fish (the local catch is amazing!) almost every day and ate either right at the water or on the screened-in porch.

This was one of our most relaxing, family fun vacations. We have already booked for 2010!
