"My daughter and I joined friends at this brand new, perfectly decorated, sleepy seaside home. The beds were comfortable, all the amenities one needs are there, the location was ideally situated with a view of the water from all the big windows, a delightful wraparound porch for kicking back and watching the scenery. There was a wonderful farmers market around the corner and around another corner was the heart of the town. Many shops, restaurants, the harbor where you can take a ferry to Deer Isle (not to be missed), the Lobster, it was all wonderful! We swam, we hiked, we walked all over and the people were friendly. The town of Stonington is a painters heaven and this house was the perfect perch to see it from!"

"We stayed in August with our 3 year old daughter and had a wonderful vacation. Our daughter could have spent the entire week happily picking the berries on the property. The house is secluded and private, but conveniently located. We walked to town and the farmers' market, and made short drives to Sand Beach, Red Barn Farm, and the wonderful trails throughout the island maintained by Island Heritage Trust. Our daughter loved the model of the quarry operations at the Granite Museum, and we enjoyed cooking in the Forge's kitchen as well as eating out in town. Wilda is a wonderful caretaker of the property. She has great information about Stonington and the island, and she generously gifted us with fresh vegetables from her garden. We will stay at the forge again the next time we visit Maine!"

"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."

"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"."
