Deer Isle, Maine


Your arrival onto Sheephead Island Inn from the town of Deer Isle is by boat at high tide from the Deer Isle Yacht Club dock to the Sheephead Island dock. If a fog, heavy wind or rain is deemed too dangerous by our Waterfront Captains, your arrival will be delayed until inclement weather has passed.  If your arrival coincides with low tide, our island ambassador will drive you and your party directly onto the island.

Due to our location, we only offer 3, 4 or 7 night stays. Longer stays are enthusiastically welcome. Our check-in and check out days are Thursday and Sundays only. Some weddings, receptions or special purpose events may require special planning to accommodate various other arrival and departure days.  Private hire events require buyouts.

Airport Transfers

Sheephead Island Resort is pleased to include in your stay, complimentary airport shuttle service. The airport shuttle is a shared van or bus. Please note, airport shuttles are required to wait for all arriving guests within a two hour arrival window of pick up schedules on arrival days. Shuttle service pickup times are 12:00 noon and 4pm. Departure day shuttle service is 6:00am, 9:00am, and 1pm. Airport shuttles operate on Thursdays and Sundays and only service three Maine airports: Bar Harbor, Bangor and Portland. When booking your stay, please take into consideration the shuttle schedule should you wish to use the complimentary service. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact us. If you plan to arrive at airports outside of the complimentary served Maine airports listed above, you will be responsible for securing your own airport transfer.

Please ask us about our recommendation for car service outside of Maine.

Private Transportation

If you are arriving via private helicopter, yacht, boat or sailboat, please contact an island associate for coordinates and landing information.
