About Jane & Peter Franchetti
My husband, myself, our children, grandchildren and extended family all enjoy spending time together at Stonecroft. Our property has a unique way of bringing us all together whether near or far. It is our pleasure to share this property with you and your family.
Jane & Peter Franchetti purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Jane & Peter Franchetti chose Wilton
As a former Bed & Breakfast, from about the 1940's-1970's, Stonecroft was well regarded by everyone who stayed here. For years before purchasing Stonecroft my family would kayak by the property and remark about its beauty and unique qualities. It was only a dream then, but now we are the fortunate owners of this remarkable piece of paradise and we feel grateful to extend a warm welcome to others so that they can come and enjoy Stonecroft just as much as we all have.
What makes this Cottage unique
Stonecroft is a nice private property yet it is with in walking distance to Main Street. Wilton is a very quaint and friendly town which features a library, post office, grocery store, and other small local businesses.

Best one yet
We have been coming to this area for 2 years now. This is the best one yet according to my husband (as I did not get to stay) the owners were super nice and helpful Bc I had book in vrbo for another house only to find out that house had been sold and was not even livable at the moment but yet vrbo took my money anyway and I would not have even known but the day of arrival i never received an email on how to get entry into the home and called the previous home owner. I was in a mess!!! I call the owners Jane and Peter to this home and they had just had people move out that day but they would get it cleaned and allow us to move in that evening!!!!! Life savers. Lol we will be staying here again.!!!!!!! My husband said he will only stay here from now on.!!
My husband, our dog and I had a wonderfully relaxing week here. The cottage was super clean, cozy and had EVERYTHING we could ever want or need during our week there - even different types of pillows on the beds. The screened porch is nothing short of amazing - the loons came by multiple times every day to fish or serenade us. It is a small, but pretty and quiet lake with amazing mountain views and lots of wildlife (4 loons, 4 (2 adult + 2 juvenile) eagles, 2 herrons and I also spotted one beaver hard at work. Enjoyed our stay + were so sad to leave. Owners are super friendly + helpful. Thanks again!
Rest and Exercise
We loved our stay. It is a large property and very quiet. We had no rain but it was on the chilly side. In spite of that we had some great fishing from the peddle boat (lots of exercise) and enjoyed canoeing with the loons. (lots of exercise We even saw a bald eagle and its nest. Played games and read when it was to windy to fish or kayak. Peter and Jane were great and we enjoyed talking with them. Jane is a nurse and they are the greatest! Peter is a teacher and they are also the greatest. The view from the cottage is amazing. I would recommend this place to all my friends. The cottage was cozy with a gas heater and had everything the two of us needed.
Even better than it’s advertised!
The lake views from inside the porch and every corner of the property were beyond beautiful. Jane and Peter were welcoming and helpful yet unobtrusive. Their cottage was clean, cozy, and well stocked ; we ran out of time before we could enjoy all the activities they had available. We managed a pleasant walk towards the village and kayaking in the lake (fantastic) in between our scheduled activities as wedding guests. One rainy day we cozied up in the living room with the warmth of the propane stove and it was so relaxing. In the evening either from the dock or the porch you could enjoy the sounds of the loons. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and sincerely hope to return.
My wife and I were looking for a relaxing cabin or cottage experience on a lake and this place was absolutely perfect. It’s a fully equipped lakefront cottage with great mountain views that you can enjoy from the large A frame screened room, the dock, or in the several kayaks or even an electrically powered dingy that are all available to use.
The cottage was spotless and was fully equipped with everything you’ll need. I believe that I read that all you needed to bring was your clothes and some food and that is 100% correct.
There is also an excellent restaurant about a mile away that was suggested to us by Jane and Peter (the owners) that we loved and visited on 3 separate occasions.
Relatively close to the cottage there are several small islands in the lake where a family of 4 bald eagles are nesting. Seeing them everyday and taking some pictures of them was an unexpected and very cool experience.
We were very lucky to have found find this place and you will be too!
Welcome to Paradise!
Stonecroft cottage and Wilson Lake were absolutely perfect for our 1 week vacation! The cottage was spotlessly clean, extremely comfy, and had everything we needed. Jane and Peter are friendly and accommodating hosts and truly wanted us to enjoy ourselves, including wanting my dogs to be able to be dogs! My two dogs swam everyday (we used the row boat numerous times a day) and ran in the yard. They have never had so much fun! Wilson Lake is beautiful, very peaceful, and quiet. We live in New York City and found rural Maine and Wilson Lake absolutely refreshing and restorative! We can't wait to go back to Stonecroft. It is truly a magical place!
