Our time there was not long enough.This was a special occasion. It was our 40th wedding anniversary. The staff was awesome helping us with anything we needed. They gave us ideas of sites to visit. The beauty of the property and water front is like paradise. Our cabin was like home to us. We were so taken by the sunrises...

It was lovely to have you here. Yes, flying into Bangor is an easier way to do it. That's what I do when I travel. But, plan for glitches in making connections. I know you will do that. See you next fall...or, sooner. Sally

Thanks for taking your time to make a comment. Yes, there are fabulous locales nearby. We are fairly centrally located and not far from Stonington, Castine, Brooklin, Blue Hill and even Bar Harbor (a little over an hour drive in summer). Sally

Our family of 6 (4 adults, 2 toddlers) spent 2 nights at Sally's property in July and enjoyed our time being close to nature, yet not so far from civilization. We stayed at the Lone Pine cottage that afforded a wonderful view of the bay, and was apparently Sally's honeymoon cottage. The cottage is quaint with lots of character, but...

Thank-you for taking your time to make a comment. It is important that we hear from everyone. While we don't stock food items in cottages or our hostel we would be very happy to gather a supply for a guest who is in need and makes a request. We once obtained "clotted cream" for a guest...and, that was something...well, we...

Oakland House Open mic night. Locals and vacationers have a chance to share their musical talents. Held in a old school barn this is a very cool show case of talent. This isn't a karaoke event. Very artistic and talented people sharing with others. Gotta give it a try. Not a boozer event.

We loved getting away from it all and sitting on our porch at the cottage with a view of the bay. It was peaceful and relaxing and beautiful. The cottages are located a short drive from Deer Isle and a small lake with a swimming beach and several small towns. I spoke with Sally, who gave me more details about...

I knew I would love this when I talked many months ago to Sally by phone. She was so very nice, and after answering questions about our preferences, suggested my husband and I might especially like Oak Grove. It was perfect. So cozy. So much attention to detail! I really can't say enough about how wonderful our four nights there...

We stayed in August at the Oakland House Cottages in the Eagle's Nest cottage.

We stayed here for three nights during a fall trip to New England. The setting is very secluded and peaceful. A short walk brings you down to the shore which we had all to ourselves.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Distinctive and Authentic! This beautiful coastal cottage colony has been welcoming guests since 1889 and has been operated by the same family ever since. With 60 blissfully private acres of coastal woodland trails, beaches, and fields in which to play and dream it's easy to feel like a child again. Ten cottages of rustic sophistication have one or two bedrooms, full baths, living rooms with fireplaces, comfortable furnishings, and full kitchens or kitchenettes. Housekeeping services on a daily basis in season. Two night minimum with a one-week stay being the most economical. Arrive any day, depart any day. We welcome you, your family, and your friends. Perfect for honeymoons, singles and groups events. We welcome a well-behaved dog in Birches Cottage. Other cottages are pet-free and non-smoking, thank you. Open from mid-April through mid-October. ... more   less
