Little Lazy Gut Island is near Stonington, Maine and just off the mainland of Sunshine, Deer Isle. It overlooks the Deer Isle Thoroughfare where a parade of yachts and fishing boats may be admired while at the same time the private world of an island may be experienced. The acreage on the island nearly doubles at low tide exposing many inviting beaches, ledges and outcrops to explore. The sand beach makes a perfect landing for small craft from high to low tide, not to mention it is excellent for all kinds of beach activity. An out haul system is maintained for a row boat, and a mooring waits in the harbor for a larger craft.
A short walk up the grassy path and you arrive at the cabin. The panoramic view is breathtaking from the wrap around deck and from inside the cabin. The cabin floor plan is one large room about 24′ X 24′. There is a roomy kitchen with propane cooking and refrigerator, living and dining area with a Franklin fireplace, a queen-size bed and a separate bathroom with a vented peat moss toilet. A sun shower is available to use outdoors. A sleeping loft is a favorite with the kids. Two large tent platforms also provide getaways for tenting; or as little decks with views of their own.
Spend your days boating and exploring the waters from the Brooklin peninsula to Isle au Haut, or explore your own island, digging clams, swimming in the cold water or visiting, reading on the deck, doing watercolors, taking photos, watching birds, seals and sometimes wild mink. Imagine your lobster cookout down by the fire pit and picnic table overlooking Blue Hill Bay and Mount Desert Island; everything tastes better on an island. Gather around to tell stories, wonder at the starlit sky, listen to the waves on the shore, smell the salt air, feel the breeze on your cheek and the grass between your toes. This place brings out your poetic side.
