Need current info on Goose Cove Lodge on Deer Isle, Maine

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (in our 60's) are going to a wedding on Deer Isle, Maine this summer and will be joined by our son & daughter-in-law and their dog for the weekend. The two places to stay that are recommended by the wedding couple are in Stonington: the Goose Cove Resort and the Inn on the Harbor. One perk to staying at either of these places is that there will be a transportation shuttle for wedding guests between the wedding/reception site and the lodgings, and we'd like to take advantage of that. Of the two places based on website pictures, we would prefer to stay at Inn on the Harbor but they do not allow pets.

Goose Cove Resort (it used to be called Goose Cove Lodge), according to their website is under new management but not sure when that happened. From the pictures, it looks pretty rustic, which I am OK with as long as it is clean. One concern is that most of the cabins don't seem to have enough privacy for us, i.e., beds are in the main living area or in an alcove with only a curtain for privacy. The reviews on Trip Advisor are quite mixed, with some very negative comments of late, which made us a little nervous.

I couldn't find any postings/replies on this forum since 2006 so I would like to hear from anyone who has stayed at Goose Cove in the past couple of years. What did you think of the accommodations? Is there a particular cabin you'd recommend and why? How is the food in the restaurant? Would you recommend it? We would appreciate your honest feedback.

Also, both my husband & daughter-in-law have knee problems so please let us know how much walking would be required to get to the cottages and restaurant and if the terrain is uneven or steep.

We would also consider staying somewhere else on Deer Isle renting a cottage or vacation home if anyone can recommend anything they know of that is nice and pet friendly.

Thanks for your help.
