Stonington is a scenic fishing village situated on the southern end of Deer Isle. It's reached by a suspension bridge and causeway over the Eggemoggin Reach from Blue Hill Peninsula. Deer Isle has no neon signs or fast food restaurants - and usually no crowds. The village of Stonington is a real working harbor town and boasts that this is where you can buy lobster "right off the boat." It's the largest community on Deer Isle, but even so, it offers the perfect escape for those looking for lots of peace and quiet and unbeatable ocean scenery. The bounty of the sea has been a way of life in Stonington for generations, and as with other working harbors, pleasure boaters are also welcomed guests in Stonington Harbor. There are quite a few very good restaurants in Stonington that feature a variety of cuisine, including, of course, world famous Deer Isle lobster. The whole island is known for its antique shops and art galleries, gift and bookstores. Boats trips leave daily from Stonington to Isle au Haut, which is part of Acadia National Park and other activities include lobster boat races, canoeing, kayaking, deep sea fishing, hiking and biking - or just enjoying the incredible scenery. Deer Isle has a wide variety of lodging, including cozy bed and breakfasts, motels, historic inns and campgrounds. The famous Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is also located on Deer Isle.
