Views and privacy great for a honeymoon.
We have rented Stan's cabin for 2 years in a row. It is on the water and the paddling is great. Also good area for biking. The island is beautiful and locals are very used to tourists but not over them/us, and are quite friendly. Not a remote and rustic get-a-way, more of an "urban influences meet New England coast rural sensibilities".
This is our entry in Stan's guest log, and speaks best to our experiences at DRWC:
Another glorious week in your wonderful cottage! This, our second stay, felt like coming home. We spent less time going out and exploring the island, and more time just hanging out together here. That said, we did make it to Haystack for the studio walk-throughs, where we also happened to watch a pod of dolphins slowly making their way across Western Cove. Visited the local galleries, ate at the Whale's Rib, bought zucchini bread across the street - all by foot, which we love. Also went into Stonington by way of the farmer's market. Thank you Stan for your attentiveness and your relaxed wit. And thank you for welcoming us into this wonderful little haven.
Dow Waterfront Cottaage is a very special retreat. One feels emersed in nature with it's birds, rocks and shifting tides, yet easily intouch with cultur, good company and good food. Every type of stimulation from tennis, to hiking, to arts and crafts is available, but for those who prefer to curl up with a stack of good books, the peace and quiet, seclusion and light are sublime! The cottage itself is clean and efficient as well as charming, The kitchen and bath well stocked and there is always a welcoming treat in the fridge!
Wonderful, secluded mossy woodland and beach trails abound on Deer Isle. Sunbathe at the cottage, visit Haystack Mountain School of crafts, hike, bike, kayak or take a boat ride to the outlying island.
