Deer Isle
Deer Isle

Deer Isle is one of two towns on the island of Deer Isle which is linked to the mainland by a bridge.  (The other is Stonington.)  Deer Isle has a tiny village of a few shops and a historic inn. Its scenic coastline is home to fishermen, artists, retirees, writers and a good many people who live by doing "this or that" in the manner of generations who came before. Bicyclists and kayakers can find quiet spots to explore and shoppers will enjoy visiting artists and craftspeople in their studios, often in a barn attached to the house. Summer is the busiest season with gallery openings, church suppers, auctions, weekend festivals or boat trips, guided walks, lectures and performances at the Stonington Opera House or the Reach Performing Arts Center.  Make sure to check out the Deer Isle Lighthouse Trail, where you can see 8 area lighthouses and get your lighthouse passport stamped for each of them!  Visitors are welcome to share in it all.
