Enjoy a week-long trip to Little Deer Isle in Maine during the summer of 2015 and stay in a 2000 square foot house on a private lot. It is a year-round home with a large deck and a deep water mooring. There is a small beach near the home (a short walk to the shore, 150 yards) where people launch their boats, kayaks, row boats and has a beautiful view.

Also, go to Merchants Row Archipelago for kayaking and see Pumpkin Island Lighthouse and Eggemoggin Reach. Other special places to see include the town of Castine and Holbrook Island Sanctuary in Brooksville.
Additional places things to do in the summer - ride on the mail boat out of Deer Isle which stops at several private islands, go to Stonington farmers market on Friday mornings, and stop at Nervous Nellie's home made jams and sculpture garden.
