Oceanfront Home - 340 feet of frontage on 2.6 acres, 2 Bedrooms - Sleeps 6
Why Steeplechase Properties chose Deer Isle
Deer Isle and Stonington remind me of my childhood growing up on the coast of Maine in Spruce Head near Rockland. We spent three years searching for a home that was close to all of the amenities the island has to offer. Our desire is to share it with others who visit the island.
What makes this House unique
Located at the head of a tidal cove with 340 feet of frontage with the ocean as your backyard and playground, one can launch kayaks, go hiking, birdwatching or relax and get away from it all. This location is private set on 2.6 acres set back from the road. Heron Watch is an excellent location close Main Street in Stonington and is a perfect spot to launch many island activities. The home is great for couples and families with an active lifestyle or for those who wish to slow down and get away from it all. Heron Watch is handicap accessible with a wide ramp leading to a 6 inch step to the home.

Great stay on Deer Isle
We enjoyed our stay on Deer Isle. Great location and a beautiful and private spot on the water. Perfect for 4 people. Bring your bug spray!
Very Good Stay
Of the five properties I've rented on Deer Isle, I liked this one the best. It features cleanliness, a very nice kitchen, a convenient location near Stonington, peace and quiet, and a fine view of an extensive cove flanked everywhere by pine woods. I plan to come back.
Idyllic Maine cottage on private cove
Classic secluded summer cottage on tidal cove, right down to the linoleum pattern in the eat in kitchen. Expansive water views from the kitchen, living room, and screened porch. Kayaks provided to explore the cove and beyond; just check the tide tables first. Fully equipped with new appliances and well-maintained. Located between Deer Isle and Stonington off a quiet private road. Well-suited for couple or small family. Great for birders and nature lovers. Neighborhood deer were friendly.
We went as a family of 4, perfect size! Beautiful views!
We had a family of four! It was a great size for four people. The views were amazing the kayaks were a plus!
The only complaint we had was the showerhead did not put out water very well.
The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you needed great size refrigerator. Great to have a grill outside. Very private. Great place to come back to you after a long day. Would recommend to someone!!
The town was quaint and people were very friendly!
All around a great adventure!!
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing private getaway this year and Heron Watch was perfect! The property was just amazing and we found it was not really necessary to leave once we got there. We enjoyed the private cove for swimming and kayaking. The yard was expansive and there was plenty of room to have yard games set up or just relax in the awesome Adirondack chairs that are provided. We spent our time exploring around the entire peninsula with our kayaks. Our daughter joined us later into our trip and it was really nice that the house came with two kayaks as well so our daughter was able to explore with us. At night the stars were just amazing however, the lightening bugs put on a pretty impressive show as well. The house is well cared for and very comfortable for a family of 4 or more. The views from every room in the front of the house are just amazing and change with the sun and tide throughout the day. We opened all of the windows and enjoyed the fresh air that flows throughout the house. Deer Isle is a great place to really get away and not be involved with traffic and tourist traps. We would recommend this property to families young and old. There is handicap access as well. By the way, there is a resident heron at Heron Watch. We saw her every day in the grassy area of the cove. We also had a beautiful little song bird that sat on the boat tie near the Adirondacks daily and sang us some lovely tunes as well as a deer that was seen on the property in the early evenings. Magical experience in a hidden gem on Deer Isle.
