Stonington House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath, sleeps 6
This is a sunny, quiet, cheerful home on the quiet side of Stonington Borough, yet within a 5 to 10 minute walk of all the good restaurants, the library and the farmers' market. The town beach is less than a mile walk from the house. The house has a pleasant back yard planted with shrubs, perrenials and a complete herb garden where you will want to have morning coffee at the garden table or sit under the cherry tree in the Adirondack chairs and read. Sit on the front porch in the waning afternoon sun with a cocktail and watch the tennis players across the street. Ideal for a couple or a small family. Well-behaved dogs will be considered. The kitchen is well-equipped .
Note that when you look at the map you will see this is on the 'other side of the tracks'. This is a good thing. I moved from the heart of the Borough to the other side of the tracks because it was so much quieter. You will also see that it is close to the tracks, but that does not mean there is loud train noise. The Borough is a 'quiet zone' which means that trains cannot blow their whistle going through and the trains are electric so they are quiet.
The footbridge over the tracks into the other side of the borough is just 300 feet from my front door.
The other advantage of being on the quiet side is that you will always have a place to park.

I'm a professor at a college in the area. This is my principal home but I spend a lot of time in New Hampshire and Rhode Island and in California so I am happy to rent this house, especially in the summer. I have rented other peoples homes using Home Away when I travel so I am appreciate that people are looking for something more personal than a hotel room.
