We have been going to Deer Isle, Me, for summer vacation for about 12 years, and have always stayed with Jean and Gerald Wheeler at their Inn at Ferry Landing. (Two years ago we bought a house in Deer Isle.) Jean and Gerald are warm, considerate, helpful hosts, who are quite familiar with the region and the people. Gerald is also a professional musician who occasionally gives classical piano concerts while Jean is an expert sailor and photographer. The inn, right on the water, is comfortable and cozy, and one wall of the living room is a window which looks out over the reach (ie, the water). The breakfasts are always excellent, and the lodgers usually provide good conversation.
