Stonington, ME, United States

Short Description

The American Eagle - Stunning Harbor Views w/ 2 bedroom (Inn on the Harbor)


The American Eagle is a gorgeous unit with 2 bedrooms: one with twin beds and a master bedroom room furnished with one queen, full bath, hairdryer, tv with cable, and free wifi. The fully furnished kitchen is equipped with pots and pans along with plates and cutlery. Enjoy the dining room set for four or relax in the cozy sitting area with a large window facing the harbor and an electric fireplace. Access to a private deck and stunning harbor water views of Stonington's historic waterfront.


At Ohana Inns, we are available 24/7 through call, text, or email.
When staying with us, you can expect total privacy but a quick and prompt response should you reach out.


Here are some good restaurants and coffee shops that you can check out: Fin and Fern, Acadia House Provisions, 44 North Coffee, Harbor Cafe, Lily's House, and Stonecutters Kitchen. (Please check off-season schedules with each restaurant. Many places could be closed during off-season months).

To do your groceries, you can go to Burnt Cove Market (about 1.5 miles away) or take a short walk to the closest market (but smaller) Harbor View Store.

Please consider bringing your specialty groceries, although we feel that the Burnt Cove market does have a pretty good selection, it doesn't have everything.


To access the property, our team will provide you with a lock code for the electronic keypad prior to your arrival.

Accessibility: All of our rooms have held shower heads. Shower chairs are available but they have to be requested prior to arrival so please let us know if you need them before your check-in.


In 2022, after a tough pandemic, we bumped into the opportunity to purchase this “space”. We here at Ohana Inns feel that the solace, surroundings, seabreeze, harbor, vibes, schooners, lobstering, birds and lapping waves make this one of the most beautiful places on the planet. That is what we think about this space :).

You’ll notice that each of the rooms is named after a schooner from the area. So each room is a little different in shape, size, decor, and view plane. They all share access to our centerpiece, which is the mass of deck overhanging the quintessential Maine harbor of Stonington.

We invite you, we dare you, we hope you come down and fill your cup with the Inn on the Harbor. It’s the kind of place you’ll never forget. If you are lucky enough to live within driving distance….. you’ll be back time and time again ;).

Aloha from our Ohana to yours!! We will see you soon at IOTH!


Stonington is located on Deer Isle and can be reached by car via Route 1 from Bangor or Bar Harbor. The town has its own small airport, Stonington Municipal Airport, which offers daily service to Boston. If you're coming from out of state, the closest airports are Bangor International Airport and Portland International Jetport. When coming to this property, guests have the option to arrive by boat or car.

We recommend that guests have a personal vehicle for running errands and exploring the area, although Uber/Lyft/taxis are available.

The closest airports are:
Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport (BHB / KBHB)
Bangor International Airport (BGR)
Augusta State Airport (AUG)
Portland International Jetport (PWM)


Here you can enjoy the views, the distant foghorns, the breezes coming off of the Atlantic, the working lobster harbor right outside of your window and an authentic (not too touristy) experience. You can park the car, hop on the mail boat and hike all day on Isle Au Haut, grab some Kayaks and tool around the harbor, go see a show at the Opera House, nosh on top-rated food at the Fin and Fern, explore the quaint shops and pier and crack a nice bottle of wine on the deck at the end of the day.

Yes, you can stay here for Acadia! Yes, it's a little more of an arms-length from the craziness of Bar Harbor but we think it's the perfect home base for the REAL Acadia adventure and true 'Maine experience'.

From Stonington, you can still reach Mount Desert Island and the major Acadia attractions. Top-rated Puffin tours also leave from Stonington or you can explore the trails of Crockett Cove Woods or roam the art gardens of Nervous Nellies after buying some local jam. Inn On The Harbor, Open Hearth Inn, and The Gust House are all locally owned and operated by Ohana Inns. Ohana means family and when you stay with us you'll see why we call everyone Ohana. If you have any questions about this listing or any of our other properties, inquire or call and we will make sure to find you the best spot for your vacation/adventure.

Pet Policy:

Here at Inn On The Harbor in Stonington, we welcome your four-legged family member. However, we ask you to help us with the following pet rules while staying with us.

1. Please don't leave your pet in the rooms unattended.

Why? Because they miss you and from our experience of being professional hosts since the 90's, when they are lonely they howl or bark causing others to lose the quiet enjoyment on the property. Lonely pets also use the bed or other furniture to snuggle on while you are away. This is super tough for our housekeepers to remedy because blankets or comforters need to be washed or replaced, also furnishings can take hours to remove hair from so we can present a clean space for the next guest. Maine is a very pet friendly place and since you brought them on vacation we hope you keep them with you so they can enjoy "Vacation Land" as much as humans do.

2. Please pick up all the poop/excrement they may have.

3. Please have your pup on a leash when enjoying the common areas.

4. Please try to refrain your dog from barking.

We have supplied you with a pet basket, which includes the following.

1. A blanket to be used if your pet sleeps on the furniture or with you on the bed.

2. A towel to be used if your pet gets wet.

We have dog treats, extra poo bags and a water bowl in the common room.

*There will be an additional cleaning fee charged if your pet makes a mess of the room or the bedding. We hope that you and your four-legged family member have a great stay here at Inn On The Harbor in Stonington.

Rock solid stay in Stonington

Spatious, bright,,spotless,,comfortable , perfectly equipped . Definitely the place to stay in the area! Congrats to the team!

October weekend
We stayed in the American Eagle suite for a weekend getaway with our kids. The space was incredibly clean. The kitchen was basic in nature but outfitted with all we needed to make a few meals in during our visit. The view was amazing and the decks were wonderful. It’s an excellent spot to enjoy the island from, particularly off season. There was a small store nearby for basics if you forgot something, but we came prepared with our own groceries. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Fin & Fern and explored Sand Beach and the Barred Island Preserve. We had no problems accessing our key and our hosts were accessible by text. Even with rain, it was a gorgeous spot to visit. Our only recommendation would be to add some basic cleaning and tidying supplies to this unit, as it does have a full kitchen. A broom and dust buster would be useful. We found a broom in the common space, which served the purpose. Thanks so much for hosting us!

Special Harbor View
The American Eagle was all that we had hope for. Beautiful views of the harbor from both our private deck and the expansive common deck. Right in the heart of town, walking distance to a small grocery and a couple restaurants. Highly ecommend.

Kathy Howell
Wonderful Guest manager!
The allure of Stonington speaks for its self! But to have a over the top manager like Trisha with her local knowledge and care to detail in your apartment your stay will be wonderfully memorable!!!

Inn on the Harbor
We love this place. Love the updates. American Eagle is perfection! Extremely clean with comfy beds. The deck is fabulous because you are right in the heart of the working harbor. My only issue is the Hawaiian branding that has been added. It feels misjudged for Stonington. I would drop the Aloha thing if i were managing your business in Maine.

Foggy Stay
The fog had settled in for the weekend while we were there. We caught glimpses of clearing that made it exciting. We love the deck and proximity to shops, restaurants, coffee, boat watching. It was unfortunate that there was a plumbing issue but the hosts and mangers did their best to accommodate.

Amazing place!
This place is a gem! The location right on the harbor can’t be beat. The decks are large, well-furnished and comfortable. The view watching boats come and go and unloading catches was perfect. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well-furnished. The customer service was friendly and welcoming. The communications and arrival arrangements were excellent. We’ll be back!
