'Beautiful Secluded Coastal Maine Island cottage Rental' Four Season

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

minimum 7 Night stay

Discover this uniquely located and beautifully furnished cottage nestled in the woods on an Island off the Coast Of Maine. Dry Cove Cottage is situated in a grassy clearing surrounded by towering alders and fir trees, located in the quiet, beautiful woods of Deer Isle, Maine.

This approximately 760 square foot cottage offers an open floor plan on the first floor with a living room, and kitchen with seating for 5 around an island. In the living room you will find a sofa, and two very comfortable recliners to kick back and relax in. There is a 42' Flat screen T.V. cable, with a DVD for your convenience. In the kitchen you will find all the necessary appliances you will need to make your vacation a breeze. For your convenience, an AM/FM/Cassette/CD player is also available.

We believe the best part of your stay should start with a great night’s sleep! All of the beds are equipped with top of the line mattresses. On the second floor you will find a master bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a second bedroom with an adult size bunk bed and a single twin size bed. In addition to the bedrooms, one full bath completes the second floor of this spacious cottage.

Our visitors are often so enchanted by the quiet, friendly beauty of Deer Isle that they stay “on island” for their entire stay. Others choose to explore the many other island and coastal communities nearby, from the islands of Isle au Haut, Vinal Haven, and North Haven and the neighboring Blue Hill peninsula to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. This cottage is the perfect location to explore them all. We are a four seasons, weekly rental with something to offer everyone.

My husband and I have stayed in this cottage on Deer Isle several times, I originally found it while searching on line and it was absolutely perfect in many ways. I believe we originally stayed there in 2008, but have gone back almost every October since then, our last visit was just 2012.

The pictures are very accurate, its location and overall description were also accurate. The property is perfectly nestled, it was clean and very cozy, not to mention, any and all necessities are there for you.

The Owner, Ricky Spafford and girlfriend Rhonda were very nice and helpful in suggesting things to see and do, you will find many informational tools in the cottage as well. They truly made our stay a wonderful experience, we look forward to our return and will stay on Deer Isle every time.

Perfectly wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Dry Cove Cottage that we stayed in last week. It was exactly like the pictures, and included everything we needed for our week-long stay at Deer Isle. We enjoyed the area immensely, and can't wait to return! The cottage was cozy, private, and just what we wanted in a rental. Our dog, Ella, absolutely loved it! Can't wait to go back. Thank you!!

A fun (and cozy) vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Our first impression of Dry Cove Cottage was how beautiful and well-kept the grounds were. Inside the cottage was a very rustic feel, and a very spacious living area on the ground floor. The upstairs was a bit more cramped, in particular the two bedrooms. The Cottage was perfectly located for our group to go on a different day trip each day of our vacation--Bar Harbor one day, a Farmer's Market on Deer Isle another, and hiking along the coast? You can't beat it.

The positives by far overshadow the negatives, but a couple are worth mentioning. As mentioned above the bedrooms are small and lack closet/storage space, so be prepared to live out of your suitcase! Secondly, although the kitchen is perfectly serviceable, the kitchenware and utensils could probably stand updating.

We all had a fantastic week, but none so much as our dog who had the best week of her life. She loved running around the property off-leash and taking naps in the shady grass. Thanks for a wonderful vacation, and be sure to visit Nervous Nellie's Jams and Jellies on your trip!

Dry Cove Cottage Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Stay was perfect, awesome location to ocean, seemed like every half mile another great view could be seen, local food was unbelievable, scallops were incredible, loved the Fishermans Friend. The cottage was perfect and owners were extremely accommodating, great piece of mind having our dogs with us not having to worry about how they would fare at the kennel, layout of cottage was perfect, boys loved the open floor plan and the balcony, bunk beds, what more could they ask for. Thank You for an awesome vacation!!! Hope to stay with you again for years to come. Enjoyed so much that considering moving upon retirement to area absolutely beautiful!

Wonderful private location!

  • 4 of 5

Idyllic setting for people who love their privacy! Beautiful surroundings with a deck where the sun moves around and the chairs are light-enough weight to reposition anywhere! Clean, well-equipped cottage, efficient kitchen, and very nice owners who are exceptionally accommodating! Close to many good eating places in Deer Isle and Stonington and a haven for art and gallery lovers! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, especially our 90 lb golden/mix who didn't want to leave!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Maine and I am sure not our last. The cottage was clean and comfortable. There were three of us so it worked perfectly. It was close to town yet far enough away for a private retreat. The owners were very helpful in answering our questions and offering suggestions. We had a great time visiting Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Baxter State Park and of course just exploring Deer Isle. The people we met were very nice and the restaurants amazing. We look forward to our next visit!
