Island Retreat

Merchant’s Row, Deer Isle – Stonington, Maine

This idyllic private island compound consists of four buildings. The main structure functions as a central gathering place for cooking, dining, and relaxing in front of exquisite views of Merchant’s Row; the other three provide discreet sleeping quarters. The buildings feature rustic, local and maintenance-free natural materials. Native granite was used for foundations, fireplaces and landscaping. Lighting and appliances are fueled by propane gas adding modern luxuries to this off-the-grid sanctuary.
