2018 reduced rates! Deer Isle is a lesser traveled but stunningly beautiful island on the Maine coast, conveniently connected to land by an impressive bridge. GlimmerGlass Cottage, a tiny house tucked in a clearing in the woods, echoes the area's rustic appeal and artistic good taste. The ocean is a short walk away. There's plenty to do on the island and within a short drive. July and August are high season, so plan ahead if you want to go to Bar Harbor, at least 1.5 hour drive on busy roads!
