Repeat visitors to Stonington may recognize our much photographed, yellow waterfront home with its tri-leveled decks and unique roofing, just two houses west of the Post Office. It’s difficult to pass by without taking notice. Nestled in between a local home, studio, and two nautical themed specialty stores, you will quickly fall in love with the buzz of this working harbor. The casual simplicity of our recently renovated Summer home is as relaxing as the waves washing in under the new mahogany decks. Breath taking views of the working waterfront and nearby islands surround you, whether you are basking in the sunshine on one of our decks, or relaxing inside. Not in the mood for taking it easy at home? The town’s varied art galleries, restaurants, specialty stores, local festivities and historic opera house, are within walking distance.
With accommodations for 9 visitors, our Summer home is ideal for the vacation of an extended family, or a group of friends traveling together. You will find a well equipped kitchen on each level, as well as private bathrooms and entrances; ideal when you’ve just returned from a day of hiking, island hopping or sightseeing and a quiet retreat is desired. Everything that you need to enjoy your time on the Island can be found at our home. Local literature; highlighting hiking trails, sightseeing must-dos, upcoming community events and local newspapers are on hand. You’ll find beach bags packed with essentials, a picnic pack and coolers for a trip to the beach, a laundry room to wash the stiff salt from your clothes, as well as Wi-Fi and telephone in case you have to be in touch with the real world.
