The island’s listing states: ‘The island’s shore-front is spectacular with miles of interesting ledge, tidal pools, and broad beaches.

‘Trails run through fields and forest, and there’s a wonderful swimming pond hidden away in the woods in the middle of the island.

‘In the northeast lee of the island, a deep-water dock, float, and mooring provide ample space for yacht moorage and protection from most winds and prevailing seas.

‘The village of Sunset is a delightful summer colony on the western shore of Deer Isle, a quintessential Maine island that is accessible by automobile over a suspension bridge.’

Stonnington is also close by, which along with Deer Isle, boasts art galleries, shops, restaurants, inns, and pretty harbours.
