Deer Isle, Maine is a beautiful island reached by a lovely bridge. Life here is marked by its distinct rural flavor, and the local communities are proud of their safe, neighborly home. Author John Steinbeck loved it here and wrote about it in his book, Travels with Charley in Search of America.
The island is a haven for wildlife and a photographer's dream. You’re pretty much guaranteed a good time here if you love nature, the outdoors, and anything to do with boating, kayaking, art, and wildlife. Lobsters are pretty important here too, being the mainstay of the economy. You can explore nature trails, see coves, and visit the 8 different lighthouses that can be found on the island.
There is a strong artist community here too, and many open studios, galleries and markets where you can discover the creative flair of the island on display.Food here is strong on local, fresh ingredients and the array of choices is wonderful.
People stay in Stonington, near the harbor or anywhere with a lovely view (which is honestly anywhere on the island).
Visiting here in any season is delightful, and comes with its own unique set of activities and attractions. The locals will tell you September is best to see the island in that stunning golden light of fall plus the incredible foliage changing color is simply breathtaking.

— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— When I plan a trip, I no longer waste time visiting multiple websites in search of the best accommodations. Now, I just go to AllTheRooms and immediately find everything from luxury villas to pet-friendly rentals! All in one place
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
