  • A Perfect Slice of Heaven

    "The Stonington Guest Cottage exceeded our expectaions. The space is delightful as were our hosts, Doug and Leslie. We found the cottage immaculate, spacious with fine amenities including fresh flowers picked from the lovely garden waiting for us as we arrived. Our week was a perfect mixture of relaxation, exploring the town and Deer Isle. We we took part in the local culture attending a dance at the Stonington Opera House and enjoying a string quartet and a quaint church. We hope that other guests will find the harbor view from the screened in porch and deck as romantic and peaceful as we did. Leslie gave us great restaurant tips and we found the restaurants very reasonable in price with delicious food. A perfect slice of heaven without the large numbers of tourists. Thank you Doug and Lesle for sharing your special cottage with us."

  • Perfect Harbor-View Perch.

    "Totally perfect! A week wasn't long enough in this homey house overlooking the working Stonington Harbor! Loved the house, view and town. Weather was beautiful, allowing lots of time on deck watching all the lobster and fishing boat activity from our perch over the harbor. A genuine working harbor, only saw one sailboat and no yachts. The house had everything we needed, including the antique dough board, which I used to make dough for fried apple pies! Watching the huge tides change the view. Days of walking exploration of the town's hills and harbor, painting from the deck, kayaking, or just soaking up the view. One day trip to Acadia National Park, beautiful! and another to Moosehead Lake. We saw 3 moose! A boat ride to Isle de Haut to deliver the mail and on to Seal Island to see our first puffins. Nervous Nellies Jams & Jellies is a "don't miss it" curious art stop. Checked out Belfast and Camden Harbors on our way home. The house was clean, open, comfy and beautiful with morning sunlight streaming in the front windows. All week we were planning our return to this exceptional house and town."

  • Amazing views and Great Location!

    "This was our first family trip to Deer Isle and we had the great fortune of finding this rental. The house is lovely, the kitchen well equipped, and the views from the porch are amazing. The location is perfect for relaxing; not too close to town but not far away either. There are also a number of nature preserves nearby for wonderful hiking. Could not ask for a more thoughtful family to rent from, a better house to rent or a better location."

  • This is what the coast of Maine should look like!

    "First, the property owner maintained excellent communications. All questions were answered promptly. Second, located on the secluded land, the house was extremely beautiful and private. The property was well maintained. As cooks, we found the kitchen was fully equipped and ready for cooking. It was conveniently located for shopping as it was half way between Burnt Cove Market and downtown Stonington. It was also within a walking distance form the beautiful sand beach and was on a private rocky beach. The photographs were true the their nature. Third, Stonington itself had variety of restaurants and it was not overrun with tourists, and the Stonington Opera House had a variety of programs. All and all, the two months we spent in the house were everything we expected. As a perspective renter who is touring the property said "This is what the coast of Maine should look like"."
