The SpaceA special cabin looks out onto the Penobscot Bay. It is a 19th Century fisherman’s cabin on Eagle Island, Maine where modernity takes a back seat to breathing, reading, hiking and connecting. The house is situated on its own point, affording great privacy to guests. Renters have access to a rocky shoreline directly in front of the house. The point is ripe for exploring, where those who brave the cold Maine water can enjoy a swim, dig clams, and hunt for crabs among the seaweed and tidal pools. Do keep in mind that the island is privately owned. Please respect our neighbors: this is their oasis too! In terms of nearby beach access, the intertidal zone is privately owned above the mean low water mark. However, an easement permits use for fishing (including clamming!) and navigation. Pack away your smart phone and pack yourself aboard a mail boat out to Eagle Island, and you can visit a world free of the Internet and televisions, running water and shopping. This is a world where less is far more. Guest AccessAmenities: Propane appliances are among this off-the-grid cabin’s few compromises to modernity. The propane refrigerator is small at 7.8 cubic feet, including a 1.1 cubic foot freezer. That’s about one third the freezer and fridge capacity of the average North American fridge, but just about right for a week or two worth of supplies. The propane stove/oven cooks up a storm, and the cupboards are stock full of cookware, tableware and spices. To clean up boil water on the kettle, pump rainwater up from the cistern, and apply elbow grease. Indoor seating for 10 usually comes with a sunset at dinner, and the picnic table makes for great fresh air lunches. Sleeping and Keeping Clean There are four rooms for sleeping, and daybeds in the kitchen can also be used to sleep two more. Upstairs you’ll find a sweet bedroom with a double bed and gorgeous view, plus a large loft space with two queen-sized mattresses on a platform frame and several cots. Downstairs there’s a bedroom with queen bed and views, a small single bedroom, and foam mattresses for two on the dining room’s built-in daybed-sized seating. Bring your own sheets, towels and dish towels for all of the above! Appearances are maintained with a generous washtub for kids, a classic shaving basin and a shower stall attached to the cabin. For the showers, fill the solar shower bag(s), located in the shed, with cistern water, lay them in the sun to heat, and then string them up in the shower stall behind the house. With no running water, it’s out to the outhouse when nature calls. This modest structure is located forty feet from the cabin. A scoop of peat moss after use keeps it smelling sweet with extra peat moss located in the shed. At night, many prefer the chamber pots. Interaction with GuestsBecause of the unique nature of this rental, communicating via email and phone is a must. We want to make sure that you will enjoy the island experience as much as we do, and that you fully understand the joys and challenges of this rustic vacation! Because of the remote nature of the cottage, a family representative will most likely not be present to greet you. However, the property caretakers are on the island in case of emergency, and neighbors are able to help in a pinch. The NeighborhoodThe cottage is located on its own point with breathtaking views of the ocean and unforgettable sunsets. As such, it is almost an island unto itself. You will enjoy a great deal of privacy at this pristine location. You’re welcome to local pickings including rhubarb on the shore side right outside the house (be sure you know how to use it safely), some wild strawberries in season in the field, some blackberries, and in season loads of raspberries. You can dig for clams in the cove by the house. Mussel populations have been endangered recently. Please leave them to recover! Also, be aware of any red tide warnings before taking shellfish. Most places on the island you can explore. An exception is the property behind and to the south of the house. Our property line runs approximately in a straight line from the spring at the beginning of the high tide path southwesterly to the opposite shore. The line has not been marked to date but comes out on the shore maybe 10 or 20 yards to the left of the southeastern end of the field in front of the house. Freshly caught lobsters can be had from Bob Quinn, who lives in the farmhouse at the top of the island. Put in an order usually a day or two in advance and pick them up yourself at the landing island of the Quinn dock from a floating wooden crate off the shore side. The island has no commercial center, but the Quinn family does operates a gift shop at the Farmhouse. To get there, take the high or low tide paths to the sandy beach, walk along the beach. The road starts at the end of the beach, and you follow that directly to the Farmhouse. The gift shop is located on the second floor. If their garden is in full swing you can sometimes purchase island-grown veggies. To visit the Eagle Island Light House, continue past the Farmhouse to the right of the house on the hill, and follow the path down to the lighthouse. Someone will be glad to point the way. Getting AroundGetting There There are several ways to get to the house once you arrive on Eagle, and all are tide dependent. Most island visitors arrange spots on the mail boat from Sylvester’s Cove on Deer Isle, about twenty minutes northwest of Stonington. The operator is the Sunset Bay Company. Call the company to make a reservation at least 1-2 weeks before your trip. You can go with the regular daily runs, or you can charter a special run. In order to be let out at the beach directly in front of the house, you will need to arrange a "beach landing," with the Sunset Bay Company. We do not have a dock, so the crew will row you and your supplies ashore. The other option is to be let off at the dock and pay for a truck ride. However, the truck can only take you as far as the adjacent beach, and if you choose that option you will have to carry your belongings across the beach to the house. Alternatively, you can reach the island and cottage under your own steam or your own wind, weather permitting. You must give advanced notice if you require a mooring so one can be installed off the small pebble beach north of the house. If you are already on the island and approaching the house by land, the route will depend on the tide and whether you’re keen for a swim. At low and mid tide once can walk southwest along the crescent beach to its end and head up the path for the last hundred feet. At higher and high tide take the “high tide” path, which begins maybe 50 yards past the swamp behind the beach and a few yards before the steep rocks and wooded banks at the far end of the crescent. The path is marked with buoys and runs just to the right of an old spring with a hefty cement cover. When you first arrive at the house, we recommend that you take advantage of the daylight to make up beds, check that the fridge and stove are working, put away groceries, prime the pump in the sink to get the utility water working and fetch a bucket of well water for drinking. Other Things to NoteVisiting Eagle Island requires preparation and education. We ask that you carefully read all instructions to make your experience positive! Packing List: 1. Bed linens, dishtowels and towels (there is one double bed, two queen beds and several divans and cots) 2. Flashlights 3. lights, lamps and batteries (there are several LED and solar powered lanterns, but maybe not enough for everyone in your party) 3. Mosquito repellent (the critters are rarely much of a problem, but they can be) 4. Some warm garments for evenings and nights. It can be cool. 5. Light wet weather gear—raincoat or the like. 6. All your food and sundries needs, including staples, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. Large grocery stores can be found in Bucksport and Blue Hill, and The Galley on Route 15 in Deer Isle has most staples. 7. Indoor reading or activities in event of rain or fog 8. For the fearless, bathing suits! 9. Extra drinking water. A Guide to Island Living Water, and How to Use It There are three opportunities for water: the well, the cistern, and what you bring with you. Well water is your drinking water. The well in the backyard is equipped with a bucket on a rope. Drop it down and haul it up, pouring it into a second bucket you’ve brought along from the kitchen. Do keep small children safely out of range. Adults should check the condition of the wooden well top. Repeated for emphasis: Well water is for drinking only. Well water can and regularly does disappear during the summer months. As a result we recommend that you bring with you 2 gallons per person per day. The cistern is your supply of utility water. It is a wooden tank in the basement, which is filled by rain water. You access it by cranking the pump at the kitchen sink. If you’re unfamiliar with pump priming, that is what you do when you first arrive to get the water flowing—by pouring cupfuls of water down the hole at the top of the pump and cranking at the same time until you get it going. Food Storage and Cooking A smallish gas fridge and 4-burner gas stovetop with oven are your mainstays. The fridge has a tiny freezer of maybe a cubic foot. A makeshift barbecue sits in the backyard. Do not use it in dry weather. The fridge keeps going on a pilot. Unless you are the first to use it you shouldn’t have to worry about that. If you believe it’s off, check with the caretaking team. When you go, leave a few hours’ time to clean and defrost the fridge, and then close the door. The gas stove is also on a pilot. Use the oven sparingly, as it takes a lot of gas. Both stove and fridge are fed by the propane tanks at the back. They’re unlikely to run out, but if they do talk with our rental managers. The coolest place outside the fridge is the closet area at the head of the stairs down to the cellar. Store vegetables, wine, beer, etc. there. Refuse Keep compostable garbage separate and put it in the compost bin between the house and the outhouse. Trust us, use the compost. It will make the trash you carry off island much lighter and more pleasant to transport. Put all other trash in large trash bags to carry off when you go. Take off cartons, water containers, and anything else that you bring. Refuse you take off should be disposed of at the Deer Isle Village dump, which off the route north from the Village. Go through the Village, bear left and up the hill for maybe a half mile. A road going off to the right from the memorial leads to the dump in maybe a half mile. Recyclables and trash are separate. Hygiene In other words the potty. The outhouse is conveniently located maybe 25 yards from the back of the house at the outhouse. Bring toilet paper. For showering there is an outdoor shower stall behind the house. Use a solar bag to heat water in the sun. Pull it up with the pulley inside the shower enclosure. Communications To reach someone on Eagle your most reliable option is walking—or running. Some cell phones work, and some don’t. If you’re boating you should have a marine two-way radio. Fire Fire is a serious danger. Do not use open flame devices in the house, which principally means kerosene lanterns and candles. The Franklin Stove is inoperable. No smoking applies inside the house, shed, and the outhouse. In dry weather be extra cautious even outside. There is a small fire extinguisher in the kitchen and one in the hallway to upstairs, but they are not to be relied upon as they are not tested. And, in any case they would only help to put out a small blaze. Campfires at the beach are safe unless conditions are too dry, or the wind is onshore. Tide Anyone can get stuck out on a rock as the tide comes in. It is a special hazard for children. Also, anyone, and not only children, can find themselves being carried out to sea by a strong tidal current. The same caution applies to kayaks or any small craft. Medical There’s a simple first aid kit in the wooden ice chest in the living area. For important first aid, if you do have a reliable cell phone that can reach the rental managers or anyone else on or off the island, that would be your best bet. On a small island with no medical facilities emergencies will require time. Wasps Occasionally there will be a wasp nest on or too near the house. To neutralize it we have purchased a liquid that can be squired into the nest from a distance and after the wasps have returned for the night. If the liquid is in the shed you are welcome to use it. Otherwise the only way to get it may be by special order through the mail boat. Wildlife Lions and poisonous snakes have never been discovered. Moose, mink, deer, and garter snakes have. Children Keep small children within eyesight. Other Hazards There are hazards that you might not have thought of–depending on your exposure to rural and backwoods environs. There are few of these, and you might guess that you’re safer on Eagle than most places. It can be helpful to keep in touch with people on the island about anything that may be of current concern. Swimming People say the water, at 58 degrees Fahrenheit, is cold. Once you are in—really in—you are numb in little more time than you can swat a fly. That allows most to enjoy a real swim. However, be advised that 20 minutes or so may be tops before you run a risk of hypothermic symptoms like trembling. The warmest water is in the cove down the path to the crescent beach. Repairs and improvements Anyone with the time and skills to undertake small repairs and improvements is welcome. If they involve a change of appearance we’d want to be in on it. Several kind people have done marvels and small marvels, and we have been very grateful. Certainly, no obligation. Suggestions We promise to read them all, and act on as many as possible. Again: Please don’t hesitate to contact us for clarification and answers to your questions.

                              Some of the most picturesque and outstanding qualities that make the Deer Isle area so breathtakingly beautiful are the meandering inlets that reach deep within the island, dotted with spruce clad island and rocky outcroppings. Spruce Shores Cottage sits nearly at the deepest interior of what has to be one of these most scenic inlets, enjoying ample acreage and over 1000 feet of shore frontage to relish this stunningly gorgeous setting. The home is tucked within this amazing setting, immediately surrounded by soft, green grasses, and further embraced by woods and a short trail leading to nearby marshland. The shoreline surrounds the cottage, and is easily accessible for walking, swimming or for launching a kayak. The home itself offers a beautiful simplicity, with everything you need yet without being cluttered and overpowering. Downstairs is an eat in kitchen opening to a living room with brick fireplace, both of which overlook the water. There are two bedrooms and full bath on the main floor, with two additional bedrooms upstairs. (one side with king and the other side with a sitting area that can house an air mattress) While not a large home, it will comfortably accommodate 5-6, but cozy enough for just two, as well. In addition to the beauty of the setting, the location is also very centrally located to enjoy activities and destinations throughout the island. A fresh water lake is nearby, as are many other beach locations, and a trip to Nervous Nellies is a must! The village of Deer Isle is but a few minutes drive, or 20 minute walk away.

                                              Homes-Caldwell Cottage is located at the end of Dow Road, a much desired location centered on Deer Isle and near Deer Isle village. The setting provides for exceptional views across Penobscot Bay and beyond to the hills of Camden, as well as expansive beachfront to explore. While not direct oceanfront, easy ocean access is provided via a private pathway through the woods directly behind the house. The cottage is cozy, beautifully furnished, thoughfully decorated, clean, well maintained, and just exudes old-Maine charm. The common living area (kit, dr, lr) and full bathroom are downstairs, with three bedrooms upstairs (note, the third, smaller bedroom is accessed via the other bedrooms). A nice deck is off the kitchen, overlooking the swaying pasture and sparkline blue waters beyond. Homes-Caldwell Cottage provides a near oceanfront experience at far more affordable pricing. Additional amenities include: coffee maker, sofa bed/futon, pets considered, lobster pot, games - all ages.

                                                      The Pickering House is an old sea captain's house with over 3000 sq feet of relaxing Down East charm. There is ample space, inside and out, which offers the perfect setting for larger families and group gatherings of up to 10. The house itself is situated on a gentle sloping hill across the street from Northwest Harbor and is just a three minute walk from the historic village of Deer Isle. Originally built by Thomas Pickering in 1854 this farmhouse has wonderful elements from the past and is sure to excite history buffs. Most locals you'll meet will know The Pickering House as 'ole Dr. Kopfmann's house - the island's doctor for over 40 years. He charged $2 for office visits at the house and $3 for house calls - the good old days! The house, a classic Georgian farmhouse, has been recently renovated but retains traditional island charm: Beautiful hardwood floors, original tin ceilings, an attached barn, exposed ceiling beams that were once ship masts, and an old ship's beam which forms the curvature of the library walls. The big back yard with multiple flower and vegetable gardens is beautiful. The property still has the original grape vines with which long ago owners used to make their own wine. There is also a deeded walking path which leads back to Lily Pond - a great swimming hole where the water is warm enough to swim and play in for hours. A trip back to the pond is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day! If there's a chill in the air enjoy yourself in the huge 6 person hot tub spa on the back deck instead! A great plus for this property is it's location: across the street from the ocean, walking distance to shops, galleries, coffee shops, the Whales Rib Restaurant, and just 1 mile to The Island Country Club (a public golf course) and Deer Isle Yacht Club. The House: The first floor of the home has a Living Room with a fireplace and 46' television w/a Roku player ( Netflix & HuluPlus) which opens to the gourmet country Kitchen. The Kitchen features a great 4 oven AGA cooker, a professional NXR stainless range, a Sub Zero refrigerator, and a huge kitchen island. Off the kitchen is a butler's pantry, a small laundry area with a Fisher & Paykel washer & dryer, and a 1/2 bathroom. The separate Dining Room is just steps away and has comfortable seating for 9-10. The Library also has plenty of seating for all, a 46' flat screen tv w/cable tv, a game table for nights of Bridge, Scrabble or Poker and a desk and wet bar area. Across the hall from the Library is the Parlor - the most elegant room in this farmhouse with tall windows peering towards the ocean, original tin ceiling, a crystal chandelier and a baby grand piano. The second floor has four bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a 1/2 bathroom. The first bedroom has a King size bed with limited views of the harbor. The second bedroom has two Queen beds and also has limited views of the harbor. This bedroom includes an en suite full bathroom. The third bedroom is quite small and has a Twin bed but features its own en suite 1/2 bathroom. The 4th bedroom, which I generally claim as the Master Bedroom, is located at the back of the house down a private hallway with a King size bed, a 42' tv w/cable and Roku and an en suite full bathroom. This room overlooks the back yard and has windows on 3 walls which make for a wonderful cross breeze. If you haven't been to Deer Isle before it is truly a throwback to the way Maine was 50 years ago! Deer Isle is connected to the Blue Hill peninsula by a small suspension bridge and a beautiful causeway so there is no need to worry about ferrying your car over. Be sure to bring your camera! Every time you turn a corner you'll see sights more beautiful than the last. Your days will be filled exploring Deer Isle (and nearby areas such as Castine, Blue Hill, Bar Harbor) and your nights either on the front porch watching the sun set or relaxing in the hot tub. You can walk down to The Whales Rib - the coolest & hippest tavern/restaurant on island or stay home and enjoy some of the finest lobster Maine has to offer. Deer Isle is one of the biggest lobstering spots in the USA. You can buy them directly off the dock in Stonington (a quick 6 mile drive at the Southern tip if the island) as the boats come in or at the Co-op. Summer 2013 I paid about $3.75/lb. The house is for rent on a weekly basis (Saturday to Saturday) in July and August. I will also consider 3 day weekend ($300/night) or weekly rentals for September and October. Email or call me if you are interested in stays less than one week. Dogs are allowed with prior approval and a non - refundable pet deposit of $150 (Hey, that's cheaper than leaving Fido at the kennel and tons more fun!) I am a dog owner and lover myself and I want you to have the best vacation possible! If you are a return vacationer with the same dog this deposit drops to $25. Because of allergy concerns, please note that dogs are the only pets allowed at The Pickering House. Thank you for considering a vacation at The Pickering House. If you have any questions or would like additional pictures please let me know.
