Overview

Stonington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio with separate kitchen and 1 full bath, sleeps 2

Studio apartment in one of Stonington's historic houses right in the main part of the village. The apartment has its own private entrance, wide pine floors, panel molding, a king size bed that converts to a lovely day bed, a fully equipped kitchen and shower with a deep soaking tub. Step right out your door to the shops, beach, restaurants, the handsome town green, the free library, docks, boatyard and the rest of Stonington's charms.

Raised up houses: 'Raised-up' houses like one containing this apartment were existing homes, lifted entirely up one story in the mid-1830s to create an additional street-level space as General George Washington Whistler (the artist's father -- Whistler lived here as a boy) built a railroad into town. The railroad made Stonington into a transportation hub, with large paddle wheel steamers carrying travelers to and from Boston, Providence and New York -- and with that a need for more lodging and services. The railroad is long gone, but you can trace its path through the neighborhood.

Stonington attacked: It won't happen when you're here, but it did during the War of 1812, when the British Navy suspected Stonington residents were fabricating torpedoes to use against it. The Brits decided to attack the town, anchoring five warships off the Point and throwing 50 tons of cannonballs, rockets, exploding shells and missiles at the Borough over a three-day period in August, 1814. Those missed, mostly, indicating perhaps their heart wasn't in it. You can see the two defending cannon down the street, and see the British cannonballs various places around town and in the Old Lighthouse Museum down at the Point, across from the beach.

Perfect spot for a long weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for five nights in August and it was great! Everything you need is in the unit and it is in the heart of a cozy town! The unit itself was immaculate, wood floors, plenty of room for suitcases and clothes for two! The owner was available and very accommodating which was a great experience, we will definitely be back again.

Perfect spot for Stonington vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I am so glad we found this spot! It's everything you need right in the heart of Stonington. We were able to bring our pup (with the owner's permission) and we discovered the dog park is about a 3 minute walk down the street--right on Stonington Harbor. The space was immaculate, cozy, and comfortable. The owners of the property are kind and helpful. We're very grateful for the time we spent here.

Little gem in Stonington

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent five nights in this lovely apartment. It was better than expected and spotlessly clean. Although just a few steps from Water St., with great restaurants and shops, it was quiet and private. The back fenced in patio was a nice place to have our morning coffee and a glass of wine in the evening. We did not find parking a problem with our SUV and kayaks on top, even though the street is narrow.
We were thrilled to learn we could launch our kayaks near the fish pier which is at the end of the street.
Carolyn, the manager, was very welcoming and helpful with info on the area.
Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a flattering review. As a note to future visitors reading the review, the fenced-in patio mentioned is part of another rental property which was vacant at the time of this stay.

My wife and I spent four weeks in this wonderful place. Loved every minute. Walked to great restaurants and enjoyed wonderful seafood. Stonington is a very friendly town with much to see and do. Can't express how much we enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful studio in an adorable town!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this studio a few weeks ago (this was my first experience with HomeAway) and was VERY pleasantly surprised. The studio was completely renovated, clean, charming and private.

The owner was welcoming and had a lot of great advice on what to do and see in Stonington. This studio is in one of the original buildings in the town and had a great sense of history.

I recommend picking up a walking tour map from the owner. It's a great way to experience this beautiful little town. I highly recommend this place!

Not sure which we enjoyed more - the beautiful studio or Stonington! The studio was wonderful. So comfortable, amazing details, perfect location. In the center of the village, we could walk everywhere including the beach! Stonington is like going back in time, including the friendly people. Can't believe how much we loved it off season. We're going back this summer and can't wait!!

Stonington is a New England harbor town on half mile long peninsula, chock full of well-preserved Georgian buildings and a terrific amount of history. It has 5 full restaurants and a great coffee shop (visit The Yellow House and Water Street -- our faves). Summer is lively with boating, sailing, parades, farmers markets, village fairs, lectures, concerts on the green, the blessing of the fishing fleet, and more. In winter, holidays have hayrides around town, a Christmas stroll, tree lighting, caroling. You can pretty much do everything on foot here. It reminds people of a smaller Vineyard Haven however less well-known, therefore less crowded and popular.
