Sheephead Island Resort

Sheephead Island Resort is an all-inclusive eco-observant resort destination located near Deer Isle, Maine. Accessible only by boat, the resort is situated on the Bluehill Peninsula, Downeast Maine. Guests enjoy luxurious tented accommodations, artfully prepared gourmet coastal cuisine, restorative spa and wellness experiences as well as an impressive menu of marine and land-based adventures, including whale and dolphin watching, horseback riding, tennis, plein air art, reading, relaxation, fishing, kayaking, yoga and heli-adventures and more. Truly an escape to the heart of the bold rocky coast, in the lap of luxury.

The goal at Sheephead Island Resort is for each guest to experience every day renewed, and our team has been empowered to create this feeling for them. We want to share with our guests the specialness of the island that our team has fallen in love with…things like a restful respite off the beaten path, quiet incredible sunrises, a deep soaking up of the still woods, sleeping under the warmth of the midday sun in a field of lupines, walks on the beach, meditation on the bold ancient rocks and so much more. Each day will be a little different from the day before and we hope to inspire our guests to take these special opportunities to truly appreciate their lives through the magic that the island holds.

Our season is sweet and oh so short so book early. For weddings, social events and special purpose use, contact us here.

Come on, we are waiting for you!

The Experience

Sometimes, due to weather, boat schedules are changed or amended by the boat captain to suit inclement weather. Weather and natural disasters are beyond our control and delays are sometimes necessary. The safety and security of all guests, partners and staff is of superior importance to us. We therefore thank you for understanding and cooperation with delays. Rain and fog are common during the Maine summer so please be prepared. The island has its share of wildlife including fox, deer, eagles, osprey, cranes, blue heron and rabbits - we ask that you help us protect our fauna and flora that we love so much by being respectful of their natural habitat. Do take photos, but please do so at a safe distance. Mosquitos are a nuisance and while we offer an all natural madagascar vanilla mixed with spring water spray to guard against such, please do feel free to bring your own preferred mosquito guard.


*We have no affiliation nor do we accept commissions from this or any travel insurance company.
