Guestbook comments from the owner

We had perfect weather for being at the beach, swimming, making a kayak tour to one of the islands, sunsets and picnic at the beach. Following Ron's recommendations we explored wonderful places and met interesting people. We really fell in love with Stonington. Carriage House is lovely and we felt very welcome. Though we have to leave, we will keep Stonington in our hearts. Andreas & Leonie, Vienna, Austria

Cosy and convenient for Plein Air Painting

  • 5 of 5

My trip to Deer Isle, Maine, was to paint the rocky coast of the island and, of course, the ocean. The hosts of the one-bedroom apartment I rented, Laura and Ron Dahlen, provided a welcoming atmosphere with cheerful decor, conveniently located a short walk to Stonington's downtown, where my various adventures included eating out, as well as painting a view of Main Street. The apartment was also close to more rural scenes, such as Sand Beach. And it was nice after working all day to have a kitchen for some simple cooking. The hosts were very accommodating while I was there, such as providing a number of informative brochures for travel to the various Deer Isle places I wanted to see while I was in Maine, especially several nature conservancies. One of my favorite outings was to Crockett Cove Woods, a beautiful place in every shade of green (that I had all to my self the day I visited).

We had an amazing time in Stonington. The Carriage was even more that we hoped it would be. There are so many things to do on this beautiful island that we have to return.
