About Donald Lateiner

We come to the Island every summer and suddenly life is different, whether it is walking through the forest looking for deer and wild turkeys, harvesting mussels at low tide, drifting with the remarkable tides or kayaking across the Reach. Reading in the hammock or on the new porch are favorites, drinking some Teroldego Rotigliano on the wine bench, it is all relaxing unless you want some exercise jogging, biking, or swimming.

Donald Lateiner purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Donald Lateiner chose Deer Isle

We looked around mid-coast Maine. We wanted to be away from traffic, from big box stores, from touristy venues. Deer Isle fit our criteria. We wanted waterfront but not a view of the mudflats that many properties face at low tide.

We, our children and grandchildren, and our friends who visit treasure sunset (and sometimes sunrise) at this idyllic spot.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet, the sound of the salt-water, access to that water with our inflatables, mixed woods with some giant trees, always a different view of the water, different lights (like hammered pewter, deep blue, aqua green, etc.) At night, we watch the meteor showers and constellations with our telescope.

Great property on Deer Isle

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at this house on Eggemoggin Reach. It is secluded, peaceful with absolutely beautiful views of the water and wildlife. Don is an excellent host and was very attentive through phone and e-mail throughout the entire process even though there were no issues.

Stonington is a great lobster port and there you get the Packet Boat to Isle au Haut, a wonderful part of Acadia National Park. Blue Hill, also on Penobscot Bay, has a great library and charming waterfront, Acadia National park with fjord and mountains is only 75 minutes away via Ellsworth, the county seat (good sports equipment shopping). Deer Isle is a great place to spend a vacation if you don't want a tourist spot, off the beaten track and full of hiking trails and small preserves, thanks to the Island Heritage Trust. If you like fancy resorts and resort towns and shops, you may not like it here!
