Shore Oaks commands the wide sweep of Eggemoggin Reach, a watery thoroughfare between Blue Hill Peninsula and Deer Isle. You’ll spy fishing boats and private yachts, windjammers, and even an occasional cruise ship. Often you’ll see dolphins and seals, best viewed from the gazebo, suspended like a bowsprit above the water. The inn is camouflaged among oaks and firs, but the long, flower-filled porch faces the entrance to the Reach, with views beyond into Penobscot Bay. The interior design is Arts and Crafts style, furnished comfortably in Mission oak. Rooms vary: Princely Room 7 has six windows and a working fireplace, but some of the longest views are from the third-floor rooms with shared baths. There’s room for everyone on the porch and around the massive stone living room hearth.
