While originally from Maine, we currently live in Florida. We bought this home nearly 10 years ago to be able to spend more time near our family. When not there ourselves, we love sharing the home. It's a great location, a warm environment, and the kayaks are just such a treat. The nearby islands are fantastic to explore. We've worked very hard to make the home enjoyable for our guests, and it is fully supplied with everything you should need. We also try to have laundry, dish and dishwasher detergent, tin foil, baggies,etc....all those sort of things you don't want to have to buy for a short stay. We also put in comfortable and quality bedding. It's a great house!!

Barbara purchased this house in 1998

Having grown up in Maine, but now living in Florida, I was homesick! So we bought a fixer upper and the whole family pitched in and helped us fully renovate this former 'lobsterman's family home'. With very few homes actually waterfront on Stonington Harbor, this home was ideal.

In actuality there aren't many homes directly on Stonington Harbor. This home is right on the harbor, and only a few minutes walk to downtown. And the dock is fantastic....we have 6 kayaks to use...plus we are purchasing more! This is the best location for kayaking out to the nearby islands. We have many return guests...so I guess they like it as much as we do!

WEEK LONG VACATION IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
We used to live in New England and always loved Maine so my mom and dad, brother and his wife, and my family decided to make the 15 hour trip to this rental in Stonington. The pictures don't really do the rental justice. It has so much character and everything about it makes you feel like you are at home. My kids loved walking on the sea shell covered beach at low tide and finding new treasures every tide cycle. We tried kayaking for the first time and found a new sense of adventure. The little cove is perfect for getting your sea legs and the bay is perfect for when you get enough confidence to explore one of the many uninhabited islands within easy reach of the houses dock. Everyone in Stonington was great, the town is gorgeous and the farmers markets are great. We sampled many of the local goods including lots and lots of lobstah. Lobster is cheaper than a cheeseburger this year. I can't say enough good about the property. We hope to make it back in a couple of years.
Some basic questions you may have:
Q. Do we need to bring groceries with us?
A. No, food and other supplies were very reasonably priced and they had a very good selection at the Burnt Cove Market, plus you have several large chains only an hour away in Ellsworth. In fact we arrived at 6PM on a Sunday and were able to find and procure most of what we needed that evening.

Q. Linens?
A. All were provided and were very clean.

Q. Is there enough to do on Deer Isle for a week?
A. Yes, I could have easily stayed on the island for a week between biking, boating, walking, eating, drinking and fishing. However, if you do need a slightly faster pace for a day or two Bar Harbor is only a little over an hour away as is Ellsworth.

AUTHENTIC NEW ENGLAND VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 21st anniversary with several members of our family at this lovely cottage. The views of the bay were stunning and our 4-year-old godson watched boats for hours. The house was well stocked with everything needed to do a live lobster boil and and a large dining room table accommodated all 7 of us for home cooked meals. There were several restaurants within walking distance and a secluded sand beach just minutes from the cottage. The Friday morning farmer's market was great fun and Acadia National Park was just 90 minutes drive. We hope to return again soon.

YOU MAY NOT WANT TO LEAVE THIS CHARMING VICTORIAN!

  • 5 of 5
This Stonington cottage provided a real get away! My mother, three sisters, and I spent a week here this summer and we rarely left Stonington. The cottage was cozy with a great view of the harbor. We didn't want for anything! The bedrooms were fine (though the twin mattresses could use replacing). We used the kayaks and life jackets...what a blast! The Four Seasons was superb and we had a good lunch at Harbor Cafe. The Whale's Rib Tavern in Deer Isle was also devine. We enjoyed cruising the islands and an educational lobster boat tour. We walked everywhere. The Opera House featured a great comedian, and tickets were only $5.00. The people were so friendly. Highly recommend and we want to return someday...

HARBORFRONT COTTAGE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent the first week of September 2012 at this beautiful home. It was everythiing I hoped it would be and more. The harborview was spectacular and could be seen from most rooms in this home. It actually took my breath away. We spent many hours on the wrap-around porch just watching the lobster boats and sailboats coming and going. In the evening we watched the sun set. The home was very well set up, with everything you would need to cook and a lot of extras, too. We slept in the king bed and it was so comfortable. The home was clean and all the furniture was lovely (many antiques). We went out to eat several times at the Friendly Fisherman, a restaurant located right in town (5 minute walk). We also liked poking in the local shops (lots of handcrafted gifts and paintings) and walking all the quaint streets in town. We made a side trip to Nervous Nellie's Jams and Jellies in Deer Isle, about 8 miles from the home. The owner has constructed a replica of an old-time western town. Very, very unique and lots of fun to go through. They also had a cute little cafe. Loved this place. We drove around the island, stopping at trails which we hiked and enjoyed the beautiful views of the harbor and ocean. You have a view of the harbor/ocean on practically the whole island. I consider Stonington a little bit of heaven on earth. The home also comes with several kayaks. We paddled around a bit, but being older, did not venture far from the dock. I would without hesitation recommend this home to friends. I (we) can't wait to go back. We are grateful to the owner, who was very responsive to all our questions. She was wonderful and great to do business with.

WONDERFUL MAINE COAST VACATION

  • 5 of 5
One couple from Vermont and three couples from Virginia, (VA Tech students together many, many years ago), enjoyed our vacation in this really quaint town of Stonington. The house was comfortable and cozy while the view from the deck was incredible! Just a short walk into town for a few groceries, a meal at one of several good restaurants, or to do a little shopping. Even has a movie theatre in an old opera house.
We watched the lobster boats as they came home and the many schooners that came sailing through. A busy and interesting harbor. Also the ferry to Isle de Haute from the dock at the end of the road. The best part was the great kayaks which allowed us to paddle all around the many islands. Just beautiful!
Ate a lot of lobster, from lobster rolls to lobsters that we picked up at the pound and brought home. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation with all the flavor of the Maine coast!
