We welcome you to visit one of the most extraordinary places on the coast of Maine. The Deer Isle-Stonington archipelago in Penobscot Bay is a unique and breathtaking area, home to the largest concentration of bald eagles in the lower 48 States, and over 60 uninhabited islands. It is well known to be the destination of choice for kayakers, sailors, campers, and any nature enthusiast. People from all over the world come to this place because of the quiet, un-spoiled and awe-inspiring environment. They come to Old Quarry because we provide the perfect access to this magical body of water, where seals and porpoises thrive and sea birds are abundant, where historic windjammers sail, and lighthouses stand stalwartly on rocky cliffs as sentinels of the night.

Had a great stay in bunkhouse. A sparsely decorated room with 2 beds, a small table and two chairs. Perfect for someone who didn't feel like popping a tent. The location was so quiet and peaceful. Walk down to the water and sit on the...More

Went on a sunset cruise with a lobster dinner. Captain Finn was incredibly patient showing us how to clean & eat the lobsters. If you have the time for this excursion, take it!! The sunset views from the water are breathtaking!

We rented an old sailboat hull with an 8 hp outboard motor for a 4 hour trip around the islands. No problems at all except that the boat was quite uncomfortable.
