We spent one night in Deer Isle on our way to a week's stay in Winter Harbor. We drove from the airport in Portland stopping in Freeport and other small towns. We arrived an hour before our reservation at the Whale's Rib restaurant in the Inn (make reservations). Our room was a lovely second floor room facing the cove across the street. It was very clean and comfortable. There was a very tiny bathroom in the room which was spotless and more than adequate. The inn was full and we were surprised at how very quiet it was despite being Friday night and having the restaurant and bar open. Coffee, tea, and fresh cookies are always available. The common rooms were comfortable and true to the decor of this 1700's Inn. Breakfast is included and delicious. We had fresh tomato, cheese, and chive omlettes with fruit and toast. Breakfast is served in the Whale's Rib restaurant. Make sure you have dinner there!
