Deer Isle is a lesser traveled but stunningly beautiful part of the Maine coastline. GlimmerGlass Cottage, tucked in the woods, the ocean a mile away, echoes the area's rustic appeal and artistic good taste. Bar Harbor and Acadia are accessible, but can easily take over 1.5 hours each way on busy roads. You'll find plenty to do and see right on Deer Isle. July and August are high season, so plan ahead! Off season rates in September.

A kiadó hely

Picture perfect, total comfort in one bedroom compact apartment attached to a working stained glass studio. Perfect for one or two adults only, and sorry, we cannot host children or pets. Nestled in the woods on a quiet country road, just a half mile from Sylvester's Cove and Penobscot Bay. Your own kitchenette for light meals, a sun and shade deck overlooking our gardens. A small BBQ available by request for grilling.

We designed and built this adorable space for ourselves and our favorite guests. Everything in it has been chosen for comfort and beauty. Sleep under handmade quilts on a feather bed with the glow of a custom stained glass window as a night light. Relax in the tiny parlor and watch a movie from our DVD collection, have coffee and read on your own deck. Make breakfast (I'll treat you to blueberry muffins or popovers one morning, if you wish) or a sandwich in the efficient kitchenette, fridge (stocked with a few basics), coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven provided. Your own modern bath has an extra large shower and plenty of hot water.

Vendégek hozzáférése

Visit us in our studio: watch a stained glass window being built or an antique one being restored. If you've always wanted to give stained glass work a try, here's your chance: Lessons by arrangement. See "House Rules" for more details.

Kathryn makes hand-dyed silk scarves. If she is dying, you are welcome to watch. Any time, take a look at the finished products and feel free to purchase your favorites.

Kapcsolat a vendégekkel

We look to our guests to tell us how much interaction they want. If you want to be left alone, you will be. We are available for advice on the area, and the stained glass studio is open for tours or lessons. We always like to hear what guests have enjoyed.

Deer Isle is beautiful in its own quieter way. It is definitely not Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park (though you can get to the Isle au Haut portion of the park from Stonington, by mail boat). There are families who have come here every summer for over 100 years. If what you really are looking for IS Acadia, you should stay on Mount Desert Island. The trip to there from Deer Isle takes at least 1.5 hours, on a good day.

All summer:

Kayaking, hiking, sailing, biking, Farmers’ Markets, Tinderhearth wood-fired pizza, 44 North coffee, Flash in the Pans (a steel drum band) street dances, Opera House Arts live performances and movies. From your own deck: crystal clear night-time skies and a zillion stars. Movies via Glimmerglass's dvd collection.

Month by month:

May: Haystack opens with Island Workshop Day and Maine Crafts Association Weekend. Wings, Waves & Woods: Festival for “birding by land, by sea and by art”. Puffin and pelagic boat trips, eagle spotting, lectures, walks (Mid month). The Memorial Day parade- the traditional start of the summer season

June: Deer Isle "wakes up." Restaurants and inns open.Stonington’s Opera House Arts gears up for a summer of live performances and movies.

July and August: The island’s 4th celebration is not to be missed and signals the beginning of the intense July and August tourist season. Too many events during these two months to list, but here are a few: sailing races, Haystack evening lectures open to the public, Kneisel Hall concerts in Blue Hill, Farmers’ Markets, two on Deer Isle, many more in surrounding towns.

September and October: Things quiet down, the weather turns crisp and cooler, the leaves turn brilliant. MOFGA's Common Ground Country Fair is in September, the Blue Hill Fair (of E. B. White's "Charlotte's Web" fame) Labor Day weekend. First-run movies start up at the Opera House!

We live quietly, for the most part, and love guests who do likewise. Glimmerglass is a small and exquisite space, suitable for one or two adults only. We've taken great care to make it comfortable and pretty, spotlessly clean. We expect guests to feel at home and treat the space kindly. Sorry, we cannot accommodate children or pets. Smoking outside on deck only, and with caution: a fire would be pretty awful.

Build a stained glass panel:

Consider signing up for a private class in our well-equipped stained glass studio. The studio is open 24 hours a day, and there is plenty of space for several people to work at the same time.

We have all the tools, many colors and types of cathedral and opalescent glass, plus an excellent collection of faceted gems, bevels, and colored glass blobs. We have stained glass designs suitable for all skill levels, or you can use our software to design your own project.

The charge, which includes instruction, studio space and all tools and materials, is $125.00 / person, or $100.00 each for two.

Kathryn's place is very clean and cozy. It looks exactly like the photos. Kathryn was very nice, she baked us popovers and gave us lots of restaurant recommendations when we were trying to figure out dinner plans. Her fridge was also stocked with breakfast and treats for us. Her husband Drew was also very friendly. This is one of the best airbnbs I've stayed at!

We had such a lovely time at this cabin. Incredible peaceful and relaxing environment and wonderful friendly hosts who made us delicious blueberry muffins. Quite close to Stonington and we had a fantastic dinner at the Whales Rib. Highly recommend for a re-charging getaway.

Glimmerglass Cottage was the perfect spot for my boyfriend and I to stay while we had 2 days to explore Deer Isle. Kathryn and Drew were very welcoming, especially with the deliciously home-baked blueberry muffins! The cottage is well equipped with many conveniences including a very comfortable bed, fresh cut wild flowers, and a beautiful stained-glass wall light. The location is great and allowed us to easily enjoy downtown Deer Isle, Stonington, and the magnificent Barred Island Preserve hike. Recommended!

Glimmerlglass Cottage made for a charming and peaceful home base for our trip to Deer Isle for the week. Having heard great things about the island through artist-friends who have attended Haystack Mountain School of Crafts over the years, we wanted to check it out for ourselves. For those who draw or paint, the landscape is amazing and constantly reinvented by the light, weather, and changing tides. Kathryn is extremely knowledgable about the spots worth visiting on the island and the surrounding areas. Binders in the cottage have directions and brochures for all sorts of adventures and allowed for a spontaneous itinerary. There's also a great library of Maine-themed books and DVDs. For food, we highly recommend 44 North Coffee in Deer Isle Village as well as Stonington, El El Frijoles in Sargentville, and Tinder Hearth bakery in Brooksville for a pizza night (call on Monday morning to place a reservation for a night that week!). Most restaurants and shops close before 8pm, so it's good to plan ahead meal-wise (I also found driving at night to be somewhat tricky). For nature: Barred Island preserve was worth two trips, Edgar M. Tennis preserve offered hiking trails along the ocean, and hopping on a boat from Stonington really shifted the perspective of the harbor and neighboring islands. Kathryn's communication was clear and thorough from booking throughout our stay. As described, the cottage is tucked away in the woods but a short walk to the shore (in most other instances, you'll want to drive as the island doesn't seem conducive to pedestrians or bicyclists). The cottage is attached to a stained glass studio and is opposite the main house on the property, but the hosts were respectful of our space. The back deck offers additional privacy and overlooks a beautiful garden. It is a great spot for meals and to see some stars. Overall, a great place to stay to experience Maine island life.

Kathryn was extremely gracious and communicative before check-in, and her place was gorgeous. We enjoyed a summer evening rain storm in her cozy cottage. Her gardens were a beautiful sight to see as well. We'd definitely stay again. Thank you!

I am a native Mainer, now doing the classic "Winters in Florida" after too many harsh winters. My husband and I just did our second retirements (psychotherapist and romance coach for me, Corps of Engineers research scientist and college prof for him) and are now able to be in our Maine house through the summer and into the fall (best time of year, the fall...). We've been airbnb hosts for two summer seasons and had a great experience with all of out guests.
