Little Deer Isle vacation rentals Periwinkle and Serindipity cottages. They are two perfect getaways along the edge of Penobscot Bay. Little Deer Isle is part of a group of islands south of the larger Mount Desert Island known for Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The island was settled by the English in the 1700′s and no bridge was built to the mainland until 1939.
Periwinkle cottage was built in 1870 and totally renovated in 2007. The clapboard brown cottage has a most unusual trim color of periwinkle blue my favorite. Launch your kayak or canoe from the beach in front of the cottage. Serendipity cottage has an cozy log cabin interior look.
Both Periwinkle and Serendipity cottages are well cared for and managed by Cris Rogers Haskell who spends her summers on Little Deer Isle and lives in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Cris says she wants to live full time on Little Deer Isle someday. Her husband, a native of the island, is how they landed up north on Little Deer Isle. He has many Haskell relatives living there with even Periwinkle cottage’s address is on Haskell District Road.
Periwinkle has one bedroom, one bath, and an open kitchen, living and dining area.
Serendipity has one bedroom, a loft sleeping area, and a 50s retro look kitchen. A large wall of windows for almost panoramic views. Cris Rogers Haskel is sharing many beautiful photos of scenes from the cottages, the shoreline, and the town of Stonington that were taken by her guests
Little Deer Isle vacation rentals cottages have some nice perks. Across the street sits a sailboat. The owner of the sailboat is a Lobstermen who goes out every day and sells cheap lobster to guests.
Town of Stonington, Maine that is about 20 minutes away appears to be every bit a storybook Maine town. Just looking at the town relaxes me. No doubt, the winters must be harsh breeding hardy year-round residents. The romantic in me thinks this is a special place to live. The Perfect Storm movie lists Gloucester, MA as a filming location, but could easily have been filmed here.
Periwinkle and Serendipity are two cozy vacation rental cottages to consider if you’re planning a trip to this part of the country. Find out more about Little Deer Isle vacation rentals at crishaskellrental
