Logo   Deer Isle, Maine
No tourist crowds here! Bus tours and RVs may head for Bar Harbor, but Deer Isle and Stonington retain their serene beauty and authenticity. This is real Maine!


You can continue southward, taking ME Route 15 to Deer Isle and Stonington, the island's southernmost town.

Just after you cross the imposing humpback bridge onto Deer Isle proper, you'll see a little Chamber of Commerce information office, open in summer.

Shortly after passing the booth, you'll enter the village of Deer Isle.

Stonington is a fishing village, summer resort, and former granite-quarrying town.

Beyond Stonington is Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park. A mail boat (tel 207-367-2468) will take you from Stonington over to Isle au Haut in less than an hour, and you can hike along the park trails—with no crowds in sight.
