STONINGTON, MAINE - LARGE HOUSE ON HARBOR

Deer Isle - Stonington House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This charming, completely renovated late 1800’s Maine house is located directly overlooking the fishing harbor of the village of Stonington. The house is surrounded by a gently rolling yard with lovely gardens which leads down to a sandy beach with granite ledges. The magnificent views include ships parading through the town thoroughfare, pine topped nearby islands (including Isle au Haut on a clear day) and observing the comings and goings of the lobster boats. The spacious yard continues in back of the house with plenty of room for croquet, badmitton or simply lounging in a hammock; ample parking is provided off the driveway.

Due to the large tides not only are the views continually changing but the small islands in front of the house can actually be reached on foot when the tide is out.

“The Stronghold” exudes a comfortable and cozy style with a mixture of old and new. Although the house accomodates up to eight people, it is cozy enough for two. The old wood floors, fireplaces, etched glass doors, antiques and collectables have been blended with new furnishings and a modern kitchen and renovated bathrooms. Colors abound both inside and out!

Step out of the second floor master bedroom suite onto a beautiful deck/balcony overlooking a breathless view! Downstairs, an attached one bedroom in-law/guest suite w/ private living room, kitchen and bath add versatility, privacy and room to spread out.

Enjoy your meals in the eat-in kitchen, the formal dining room, the sun-porch, or picnicking in the yard overlooking stunning harbor views.

The location, design and comforts of this beautiful home are too numerous to mention. Bask in the unrivaled views from the decks and yard, swim off the sandy beach, explore the unique shops and restaurants in the villages of Stonington and Deer Isle, or simply relax and take in the sun and ocean breezes; it doesn’t get any better than this! A true, Maine seaside classic!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for opening your house to us. It is a magical place where you can sit and watch the world go by. The house is decorated so uniquely. I love the book "Maine Memories" and will try to purchase one as a special reminder of days gone by. One week is not enough. Next time we will stay longer like we did two years ago.



Johnny is a wonderful asset - for many reasons" Our memories of this special house and setting will see us through until we come again. Thank you.

My grandparents purchased a summer house on Deer Isle in 1918...and our family has been returning to the island ever since. Unfortunately, my grandmother sold their house in the mid-60's, but my interest in having my own home continued and I was able to purchase 'The Stronghold' in 1999. After three years of renovation (inside and out), I'm proud of the final result!

Sallie Strong purchased this house in 1999

This is a magical spot...the location and views are unsurpassed. The village offers restaurants and entertainment and the house is comfortable yet spacious with ever-changing views.

This spot is a haven for relaxation, interspection and exploration, entertaining and fun. The sky meets the water, meets the islands and the harbor and...meets my house. It is all very hard to describe!

A Great Find

  • 5 of 5
This was our fifth year renting the Stronghold and it was fabulous again this year. The location is perfect and there is nothing you would want that isn't provided at the house. We love that you can walk to downtown which includes a few shops and restaurants. We love watching the process of lobstering that takes place all around us, and the surprise appearance of a schooner or two in the back yard is really a treat. Hope to stay there again next year.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
When we reserved the Stronghold in Stonington we knew it would be nice but upon our arrival we realized it had far exceeded our expectations and we were thrilled! The house is so large, spacious and beautifully decorated. It was spotless and everything we could possibly need. The view was breathaking. Every morning we awoke to the sounds of the ocean, sea gulls and horns of the lobster boats. The cool breeze was so welcoming and we drank our coffee outside every morning. Just soaking in the natural beauty.
We loved meeting the owners, Don and Sallie and their precious dog Charlie. They gave us valuable information on places to see, good places to eat within walking distance, and where to buy our lobster.
They were wonderful. We just loved everything about our stay!!!!! Thanks so much for the vacation spot of a lifetime.
