Stonington house description

The Brown House is located on the harbor of Stonington Village, Once you get there, you won't need your car! The Brown House gives you beautiful views- a back deck over the water is a peaceful and quiet retreat from the busy town. From the deck, you can watch the whole harbor as well as look out over the small islands of Merchant's Row. It is also within walking distance to groceries, library, ice cream, antique shops, ferry terminal, and restaurants. Walk along the waterfront and watch the harbor bustle along or enjoy day trips to the various islands. The mail boat cruises through tiny islands and takes passengers to the village dock at Isle au Haut. During summer months it also stops at Acadia National Park. This park covers more than half of Isle au Haut and offers both easy and challenging walking trails, rugged beaches, and spectacular ocean views.
