"This was everything we could have wanted and more. The village is wonderful, delicious restaurants with organic local foods and fish, charming bookstores, and the dreamiest views. The house was even better. Same views, lovely furnishings, cozy movie den. We had a nice dinner party with friends, did some baking (it comes fully equipped for any cooking and baking needs), strolled into town, read books, picked flowers, had cocktails on the adirondack chairs, played with the kids in the yard, and just enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. It was lovely and we felt so lucky to have found it."

"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."

"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."

"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!"
