When it comes to remoteness, the town of Stonington, Maine, scores high.
Stonington is located on the southern tip of the island of Deer Isle. The population of the small island village is 1,065. It's a three-hour drive from Portland, and quite a haul from Interstate 95.
It's known as a fishing town, artist retreat, hiker's paradise, site of lobster boat races, and a wonderful place for a peaceful and serene vacation.
Staying in Stonington
The great thing about staying in Stonington is the fact that it's very difficult to stay in Stonington. There's simply not a huge inventory. However, the options are quite exquisite, including one home on Airbnb that truly stands out.
