What activities are available to residents?


Despite its rural location, Deer Isle offers a wide variety of activities and programs year-round for our island community. INH takes full advantage of this diversity to enrich residents’ lives. For example, the Stonington Opera House offers weekly first-run movies as well as music programs and plays throughout the year. Fishermen’s Day when residents picnic on the pier, the Fourth of July parade, for which residents and staff build a float, the Blue Hill Fair, the January “cabin fever” musical at the Reach Performing Arts Center, and regular trips to the surrounding area to shop and dine are INH staples. In addition, Deer Isle has a number of churches, whose pastors and representatives regularly visit INH to offer services or individual visits.
