Great Place to stay in Stonington ME

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay on my favorite spot on the Maine coast. The cottage was lovely and well equipped (we even had our own herb garden). Beautiful quiet cove with abundant wild life. Lovely outdoor areas for sitting and enjoying nature. Short drive to town. Even a few rainy days couldn't ruin our experience. Will definitely return.

Best Place in Maine

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Cove Meadow Cottage. We like it so much we hope to return.

The cottage is cosy and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, including food processor and ice-cream maker. The view from the cottage is stunning with an open view to a quiet bay, lots of woodland and a small stream.

Deer Isle in early season is not full of tourists like other parts of Maine but there is lots and lots to do. You can kayak in the boats provided near the cottage or go for kayaking lessons at Outdoor Quarry Adventures only 10 minutes away. There is a beautiful state park only half an hours drive at Holbrook State Park with woody tracks, the prettiest picnic area I have ever seen in a state park and views out to the islands.

It is Maine so there are lobsters and lots of good food.

Lyndsay is the kindest of hosts and if you want advice or help she will point you in the direction of the best place to buy local produce, or to set off on an adventure.

Location

From the Owner

When I first laid eyes on Cove Meadow I knew I would never see or have an opportunity to be the caretaker of such a magnificent and unique property. 10 acres f meadow, ringed with tall ancient woods, 1800 feet f shore cove frontage, estuary frotage and brook frontage. I have restored to pristine conservation standards and done the main house and its two guest houses and gardens to honor Maine and island traditions of simplicity.
