Stonington House Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2.5 Baths , sleeps 6

Beautiful home located in 'the village' overlooking the town docks. Graciously appointed 2150 sq ' with open plan living area. Stunning water views landscaped gardens.

Saturday farmers market on the green across the street. Great playground across the green. Honor system fish market right next door. Sandy beach within walking distance. Many fine restaurants within walking distance.

Ed & I have been living out of the country since 1991, Singapore, U.K. and currently Malaysia. We love our life abroad but we very much look forward to retirement and being able to enjoy our home on a full time basis.

Stonington is a wonderful village with an eclectic mix of people.

We love our home and some of our favorite things include sitting on the deck and watching the scallop boats come in, watching a beautiful sunset from the loft , walking down to 'the point' and swimming at DuBois beach.

Stonington offers a good variety of restaurants & bars within easy walking distance. Noah's, Milagros, Water St cafe and Zacks are our favorites. If you prefer to be your own chef just walk across the street and buy fresh frozen seafood at the 'honor system' fish market from Stonington Seafood harvesters ( the best scallops i've ever had ) or fresh lobster at the dockside.

On saturdays we have a local farmers market,in the summer they set up just on the green across the street and in winter they move indoors to the Velvet Mill. The Velvet Mill is a wonderful repurposed building which now houses studios for a wide variety of talented artists.

There is a large supermarket just a few miles down route one but travel just a bit further and you will find excellent food co-ops in both Noank & New London.

Toms newstand offers all the basics and local news & the beautiful town library is only 2 blocks away.

This place gets 5 stars from us. Roomier than expected. The open living dining area was a big plus for us in that we had large family meals with our guests. The master bedroom is wonderful with ocean cross breezes and you can hear the harbor fog horn. Being able to see the harbor (not great view, but perfectly adequate) from the sunny south facing newly redone large deck was a delight. There was parking for four cars and public parking a stone's throw away. Great being a one minute walk from all the 'in' shops and restaurants right on Water St. (where there seems to be no parking spaces) and right in the middle of the historical district with it's Tues and Sunday historical walking tour, etc. A playground was next door and the farmers market on Saturday morning was a delight. Having a washer dryer was most helpful. House even had a grill and gorgeously manicured yard area. The notebooks the owners set out with local information was very helpful. The upstairs loft was a good place for kids to congregate. My only concern would be that the 2nd bedroom downstairs was 1/2 the size of the master bedroom, also, one enters the house by an indoor stairway (better view of harbor that way) so someone with a wheelchair can't visit. Stonington is the REAL Mystic. Don't miss it!

We totally enjoyed our stay in Stonington. The beautiful water view, the easy walk to restaurants and shops and the atmosphere of the entire town led to a perfect vacation getaway. The house was lovely and perfect for two couples to share. The location was a perfect one for day trips throughout the New England area, and proved to be a perfect base for these trips. I would not hesitate to rent this beautiful home again.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for that lovely review, hope to see you again in the future
