Located near the northern tip of Little Deer Isle, Eaton House faces west over Penobscot Bay, overlooking the Camden Hills in the distance. The home is situated on a private grassy knoll, only about 80 feet from the beach front. It boasts over 500 ft of shore frontage, along with a pier, dock and mooring ( mooring by request only). The interior of the home is warm and inviting. It was recently remodeled, but done in a manner to preserve its old charm and beauty. Retained are the original wide pine flooring, window and door moldings and the dining room display cabinets, including dry slate sink with hand pump. There is an all new, well s...upplied kitchen which opens to the dining room. The dining room in turn opens to the living room, allowing for an open, flowing feel. This design enables each room to share in the views. New windows throughout further soak in the west facing shore line, along with views of the smaller islands stretching out to the sea. Upstairs are three nice sized bedrooms and bath (one queen bed in the master, two twins in each of the other two bedrooms). Rest outside on the classic covered, wraparound porch with Adirondack chairs. Or relax on the lush green lawns that stretch from the home down to the shore, along with flower gardens and surrounding woods to enjoy. Step out on the long pier, and if you happen upon the owner when he is heading out to haul lobster traps, you might just be able to catch a ride! The owner has his workshop and traps on the adjacent property, which you will pass by when driving to your cottage. So likely if you are looking for lobsters, you may not have to go far! A very fine, oceanfront property.Read more

We have stayed here the last 2 years in June and loved it. You have views of a small cove and the Penobscot bay from almost every room in the house. This is a great place to relax and unwind. Make sure you try and meet the owners, they are very nice. walking around the property, the old restaurant next door and walking through the cove during low tide is just incredible.
