Shelter Harbor house description

Imagine a home where the living room opens out to a glass-enclosed porch and open deck overlooking the water!

Pick your options for dining and/or lounging with a priceless view of the pond and boats. Located on saltwater Quonnie Pond with access to the ocean, this home has a private dock, dinghy and mooring, enabling a vacationer to bring a sail or motor boat to a safe harbor after a day on the ocean or pond.

A basement shower is just right for cleaning off the sand and salt water after a swim.
Walks in a nearby wooded area are delightful.

There is golfing nearby, good food at the Shelter Harbor Inn and attractions such as the Mystic Aquarium, Stonington Seaport, the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos, house tours in Newport, ferries and planes to Block Island. Our neighbors next door have a gorgeous home that sleeps 8-10 if you have a large family and want to combine houses! See listing 414580....

All this plus glorious sunrises over the pond!

                  About: I am a retired musician/teacher. I live in New Jersey but this house is my heart-home. I was born in this house 91 years ago and I return as often as possible. We have two adopted children and three wonderful grandchildren all of whom love this house too. I hope you will also.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have a unique and beautiful view of the pond and opposite shore. Every day the light, the clouds and the color of the sky is different. There are no repeat performances. We see the sunrise and moonrise from the porch and deck and one of the bedrooms as the view opens out to the east.
