Deer Isle has a little bit of everything. Shopping, dining, hotel and library were all nicely situated in this lovely village.

These two small Maine coastal villages are very similar in that they have each carved out a personality that is attractive to the tourist without making it a tourist trap. Since we spent most of our day visit in Stonington we did not allow equal time for Deer Isle; however, they seem more dedicated to the arts and crafts culture.... More

If you are vacating in Maine and you are near Ellsworth, I would highly suggest a day trip to Deer Isle. It is about a 45 minute ride away. You do have to go over a very old bridge which is not in the best shape. But, once you cross it , you come to Deer Isle which is an... More

Upon stepping out the door of the Pilgrim's Inn, we were on Maine Street in Deer Isle Village. We met and talked with almost all the artists whose galleries were there and as a result, their work was even more meaningful. We were struck by their love of place and how the spirit and beauty of Deer Isle had captured... More

Nice ice cream shop and bookstore/gift shop. Quite a bit more to explore but never did make it back here to check it out. More to do next time!

Loved the Deer Isle Art Association art gallery, The Whale's Rib Restaurant, the Periwinkle for magazines and copies of The Lupine Lady. Also liked the Red Dot Art Gallery...and the Ice Cream Shop for no sugar added flavors. My husband is diabetic.

Deer Isle village is the jumping off point for a number of local galleries, the most notable of which is The Turtle Gallery on Route 15. Don't miss it! The owner Elena Kubler has excellent taste and a subtle eye for fine art and high end artisan crafts. The main portion of the gallery is in a two-level barn with... More

My family and I have vacationed in Maine for twenty years, and much too late we discovered the village of Deer Isle, on the under appreciated Deer Isle island. This quiet Maine town is sited on a beautiful section of the Maine coast. The tiny library offers a surprisingly ample supply of books and DVDs; the village is home to... More

Deer Isle Village hosts an annual 4th of July Parade that is very old fashioned and fun! The entire island turns out for it. It's like being back in the 1950's. The village is tiny (Stonington village is much bigger by comparison but also very small). The island of Deer Isle is the best part of Maine. There are many... More
