Recent Stonington property reviews

  • A Great Find

    "This was our fifth year renting the Stronghold and it was fabulous again this year. The location is perfect and there is nothing you would want that isn't provided at the house. We love that you can walk to downtown which includes a few shops and restaurants. We love watching the process of lobstering that takes place all around us, and the surprise appearance of a schooner or two in the back yard is really a treat. Hope to stay there again next year."

    "This was definitely worth the money! The house was beautiful, quiet, peaceful in such a wonderful setting! I was very impressed with the owners. He had the driveway plowed out the instant it stopped snowing! If I needed to get out, he came right down to help! Very personable owners! The wildlife was just incredible! I bought bird seed and the cardinals and blue jays were phenomenal. The deer seemed to even enjoy the bird seed. They visited every morning! They even seemed to get used to me, since I sat on porch in the morning! Everyone that raves about Stonington Maine lobster are right on key! I was eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Delicious!"

  • Terrific to be "home" again in Stonington, ME

    "What a terrific job Wilda and Richard have done in making Jack/Harriet Hemenway's workshops and showroom (which I remember so well) into an inviting, comfortable, welcoming vacation spot. They have thought of everything to make this a real "home away from home" vacation destination. Loved every minute of the time there."

  • It's in the details

    "The details are all there! We managed our vacation home in the mountains of Colorado in a manner that we felt we were sharing - sharing our home with friends. We felt that generous spirit from the Buxton's Stonington house. All the details are right. If you like to cook - its all there. but of course it is not just about the details it's about location. Perfect. Quiet - great inlet views. A real lobster village i not some touristy faux deal. Real people. And just far enough off the beaten path to not feel a a part of the summer swarms that inundate more "popular" towns. Yet there is the island's best grocery store a couple minutes way and it is a quick drive to town when the need for restaurants and other services arise. The town of Stonington is classic and the people are genuine. So we can heartily recommend this house! Thanks for sharing!"
