Boasting 150 feet of ocean frontage on Stonington Harbor on nearly an acre in downtown Stonington, this historic cape offers the convenience and excitement of downtown living, with off-site private beaches providing the privacy and peacefulness of a countryside setting. Insmere Cottage blends the best of old charm while providing newer amenities to make your stay more than pleasurable. Recent renovations and classic furnishings make this home a showplace of design and decor. When not out enjoying Stoningtons fine restaurants, the cooks in the family will relish this deluxe, fully-equipped kitchen. Large windows with seating area further bring Stoningtons busy harbor scene right in to the kitchen. Another large picture window graces the dining and living area, where a charming fireplace will keep you warm and cozy. There are four beautiful bedrooms, two upstairs and two downstairs. Both upstairs bedrooms showcase oversized dormers framing in an expansive view of Stonington Harbor and beyond, one with queen bed and sitting area, the other with twin bed and complete sitting area (serving as family room, too). A spacious deck welcomes those wishing to enjoy the outside sea air and take in all the activities of Stoningtons busy harbor, as lobster boast busily perform their daily task. Or enjoy a basket lunch on the grounds, and pick your own apples! Guests of Insmere Cottage also have beach privileges at the James Family Trust Property, a 620 foot area of private shore frontage as well as three and a half acres of woods along some of the most beautiful rocky shoreline on Deer Isle - only a ten minute drive from Insmere Cottage. You will treasure this opportunity to have both the bustling in-town harbor and quiet shorefront experience all in one vacation property!!
