Edgar M. Tennis Preserve Professional Review and Guide
"Explore the interesting human history and understated natural
beauty of this rural throwback of an island off the coast. The arching span of Deer Isle-Sedgwick Bridge over Eggemoggin Reach is the boundary of a different time zone of sorts, what is often fondly referred to as “island time.”
The pace of life on Deer Isle seems slower, more relaxed, and perfect for many hours of recreation and leisure activities. And there are plenty of opportunities for both on this 24,000-acre island of bountiful natural beauty, complete with 112 miles of coastline, spruce-scented woods, pink-granite shorelines, deep-green waters, salty ocean air, squawking gulls, and long island views."
