Stonington cottage description
This cottage is a perfect example of the historic charm and character of Stonington Borough. Built in the early 1900's, it is one of the older cottages in the Village, peering over accents of the harbor from both floors. . The cottage has a large backyard with a Weber charcoal grill, and includes two bicycles with quick access to the beach and point (about a 5 min bike ride).
The house is 2000 square feet and has two floors, with a covered, sunlit front porch. On the main floor there is a large living room with a cozy fireplace, a bedroom and bathroom, and a beautiful, sunlit kitchen, well-equipped for cooking delicious food. You can buy fresh fish and seafood just down the street. The second floor has classic hardwood floors, a reading/play room and two bedrooms and another bathroom. The cottage has three bedrooms and can sleep up to 6.
The Borough is a great summer getaway with wonderful amenities - a library, playground, restaurants, marinas and farmer's market every Saturday morning just one block from the house.

Wonderful owners, beautiful and cosy home
Wonderful owners, beautiful and cosy home
What a secret gem. This house reminded me about what I miss about New England, the character and charm of its small towns. The owners are great people, live close by, and were very responsive to all of my questions and needs throughout my stay. The house is spacious, has great daylighting and a nice yard for barbecuing. We rode the bikes they included in the rental every day to the beach and went swimming. Stonington is a great town and has a cosy main street with coffee shops and restaurants, and all within walking distance. What a wonderful week, will go down in the books. Thanks for the lovely stay.

Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.
Carpets dirty, cobwebs in corners, some windows don't open others don't close. Some window screns need repair. Kitchen needs upgrade, no garbage disposer. Kitchen was poorly equipped for six. Cabinets do not close. Noisy air conditioners. Good location with playground nearby. We would not rent this house again.

About the owner: I am an artist and a teacher. My husband and I met at RISD and bought this house after we moved to Stonington and designed and built the house we live in. We first found Stonington on sailing expeditions we took where we would anchor in the harbor and we eventually fell in love with the borough and decided to move there.
