Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: While originally from Maine, we currently live in Florida. We bought this home in 1998 to be able to spend more time near our family. When not there ourselves, we love sharing the home. It's a great location, a warm environment, and the kayaks are just such a treat. The nearby islands are fantastic to explore. We've worked very hard to make the home enjoyable for our guests, and it is fully supplied with everything you should need. We also try to have laundry, dish and dishwasher detergent, tin foil, baggies,etc....all those sort of things you don't want to have to buy for a short stay. We also put in comfortable and quality bedding. It's a great house!!

Why the Owner Chose Stonington:
Having grown up in Maine, but now living in Florida, I was homesick! So we bought a fixer upper and the whole family pitched in and helped us fully renovate this former 'lobsterman's family home'. With very few homes actually waterfront on Stonington Harbor, this home was ideal.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In actuality there aren't many homes directly on Stonington Harbor. This home is right on the harbor, and only a few minutes walk to downtown. And the dock is fantastic....we have 8 kayaks to use! This is the best location for kayaking out to the nearby islands. We have many return guests...so I guess they like it as much as we do!
