At The Red House Bed and Bath, we have been welcoming travelers to the coast of Maine — Penobscot Bay and Deer Isle — since 1996. Following a devastating fire in 2001, we built a new Red House. It is spacious and quiet, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
The temperate maritime weather is a welcome relief from sweltering summer heat. Clear night skies encourage unparalleled stargazing of the Milky Way, the midsummer Perseid Showers and Northern Lights in the cool nights of autumn.
Our big deck overlooks granite ledges and gardens, looking down toward the water. It is a great spot for watching birds, enjoying the sun, a good book and a glass of wine, surrounded in lupine, delphiniums, lilacs, phlox and roses that the sea air make lush. It is just a short walk down to the water for a brisk swim and views of the Eggemoggin Reach.
We are also only 1/2 mile to a public beach and many walking trails protected by the Island Heritage Trust.
