For your arrival, Homestead East Cottage will be clean and made up with fresh linens on the beds and plenty of clean towels. We provide organic soaps, dish soap, shampoo and cleaners, as well as 100% recycled paper products. After your arrival, housekeeping and additional firewood will be provided when in high season. To avoid an additional cleaning fee, we ask that upon departure guests leave Homestead East as they found it: washing all the dishes (may leave to dry in rack) and leaving things clean and tidy. We wash the linens upon your departure, and if requested, will change them mid-week in a week-long stay (during high season).

Homestead East has easy, drive-up access, and is on the sunrise side of the Homestead duplex, which is on a rocky bluff facing the ocean. Inside you'll find knotty pine paneling, two bedrooms (queen and two twins). There is a hide-a-bed in the living room, as well as a fireplace. The bathroom is furnished with a tub and shower.

Guest staying with us have access to the beach and seashores. There are hiking trails on the property which can be navigated via the map provided. You are welcome to take advantage of Oakland House's front porch and its chairs. Should you wish to Kayak from the shore, both "The Activity Shop" and "Rocky Coast Outfitters" will deliver and pick up your rentals. Should you have questions, feel free to visit the office, or approach any of our employees. We will be happy to help!

We're eager to help with suggestions of where to go and what to do in the area. We have compiled a very comprehensive Guest Directory for guests in our cottages. It includes lists of local attractions, parks, hiking trails, restaurants, musical events, art galleries, and things to do and see.

Our staff lives on site and is available to provide more information and assistance. There is an old-fashioned pay phone on the porch of the old Oakland House hotel. Calls are free within the local exchange.

There is so much to see on the Blue Hill Peninsula, which encompasses the towns of Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Penobscot, and Sedgwick. This is also the gateway to Deer Isle and Stonington.

We have compiled a very comprehensive Guest Directory for guests of Homestead East. It includes lists of local attractions, parks, hiking trails, restaurants, musical events, art galleries, and things to do and see. You will find here the irresistible beauty of Penobscot Bay with proximity to galleries and shops, chamber concerts and live theater, and abundant opportunities for boating and hiking in Blue Hill, Castine, and Deer Isle.

As for nearby places to grab a bite to eat, try the Eggemoggin Country Store and Bucks Harbor Market....all within a very short drives distance. Blue Hill is about 11 miles away and there are more restaurants there. In Stonington, about 25 miles away, try Fisherman’s Friend Restaurant on the public waterfront. It has the best family style seafood in the area! There are also several other very neat restaurants in that area. AND, you can buy lobster right off the boat if you time your arrival just right.

LAUNDRY AND GROCERIES:
There is a laundromat in Blue Hill and one on Deer Isle. Grocery stores, farmers markets, and various roadside farm-stands. As these are often not manned, have cash ready to leave in exchange for fresh eggs and vegetables.

NIGHT LIFE:
First choice would be right here...outside gazing at the stars! Otherwise, try a variety of live events at Stonington Opera House Arts or a public lecture at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts on Deer Isle. Or hop on the Mail-boat for a ride to Isle au Haut. Take your lunch and eat it on the boat, or get off and hike a bit on the island.

You can plan on something going on all summer –live theater, open mic, classical music, gallery shows, street dances, movies .....

And now for the second day....

We are in a country setting without public transportation, so you will need a car to get around.

If there is something you wish to see or do, we suggest you check with that business or destination to verify times of operation, availability, and/or rentals.

We have “country Wi-Fi” which is quite different from high speed DSL or inner city wireless connection. Our system is sufficient for personal email and simple searches and web browsing. It is not sufficient for streaming audio or video, or uploading large photo files to a server. Streaming sports events and movies does not work.

We do as much as we can to be environmentally friendly. We have replaced incandescent lights with florescent and LEDs as needed. We do not use pesticides on our lawns or gardens, and as a result we have a large assortment of wildlife living in harmony with the surrounds.

Homestead East was absolutely perfect - and the pictures don't do it justice! The waterfront is beautiful and we loved being able to make coffee and then be on the shoreline in seconds. Deer Isle is a short drive away making it really convenient for food, the Stonington Lobster Co-op, meandering, etc. Wish we could have stayed longer!

UNBELIEVABLE BEAUTY! Sally was very friendly at (and before) arrival and had many suggestions for local things to do. All the other guests that we met while here were repeat guests who make annual pilgrimages (which says more than I ever could). I cannot imagine a nicer place to get away from it all!!

We had a wonderful stay in the Homestead East cottage. The view from the cottage was AMAZING! There was even a bald eagle up in the trees right in front of the cottage. We also enjoyed the great little private beach.

Our cottage was such a delight. Right on the waters of Eggemoggin reach our time was spent with beautiful sunsets, an ever present bald eagle and peaceful lodging. Sally was very sweet communicating with us prior to our arrival. A lovely stay here.

The photos do not do this wonderful cabin justice! It's fab! To just sit and admire the view is enough but we had access to a fantastic beach and beautifully tended gardens/grounds. the cabins are spaced really well around the property - each one is quite private - it attracts peaceful couples and families many who are returning clientele. The smell of the sea and the incredible sea breezes are delightful. It must also be remarked that the cabin was incredibly clean with many many towels provided and organic shampoos and soaps. A wonderful place that we'll return to!

Sally was a wonderful host - very responsive with our communications and helpful in getting to her beautiful property. Upon driving down the hill to her 60 acres, my girlfriend was just enchanted (yay!) Super cute, lush green fields, and pristine coastline location. The cabin was perfect for the two of us - right on the water. The location of the cabin allows one to see sunsets - two splendid evenings watching the sun drop over the hills of Camden over the water. We were also visited by dolphins throughout the say, capping off a perfect weekend at Homested East. Thank you! We will be back!!!

Thanks for the feedback Scott. That refinished antique walnut headboard is attached to a modern frame. It was part of a wonderful "full-sized" bed that was once used in the old hotel for guests. Perhaps we should fasten it to the wall like is done in some hotels...just thinking. Sally

Perfil de usuario de Sally

I am an energetic mature coast of Mainer. What? I have been around the world and experienced many things. While I have degrees in microbiology and industrial design, I call myself a farmer....well, an innkeeper too. I love gardening and have more recently fallen in love with hot metal. That's blacksmithing. Importantly, I am hospitable and gracious in welcoming people and being gracious to strangers. I am a creative person and nurture that in others. The accommodations I have listed are a few select ones that are in the business that I inherited from my husband who was a fourth generation innkeeper on this coastal property. I am a busy business person and you will not always find me on site. My staff is always available if I am not. Each one of them is and has talent in so many ways: musically WOW, Artistically AMAZING and Creatively Stupifying! They and I welcome you!
