"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"."Guest: Nhan and Bill Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: November 6, 2014View listing
"Such an amazing house - layout, location, amenities - all of it contributed to our relaxing and fun-filled family vacation. We visited with our 2 kids (3 and 5 years old) and their grandparents. Kids loved running around the back deck/porch that wraps around half the house. Sunset dinners on the deck. Lobster feast with fresh lobsters from the lobster co-op - 2 lobster pots and as many shell crackers and pick you could need. Kayaking among the sleeping lobster boats at sunset with the gorgeous "Stonington light." Just sitting in the living room, facing the harbor, and watching the graceful action on the harbor - meditative. Master suite is spacious and set apart from the other bedrooms which are located on the 2nd floor. Plenty of places in the house for sharing a family meal - in the dining room, the breakfast area, table on the back deck, picnic table on the dock. And, plenty of places to kick back and relax around the house - reclining chairs on the back deck, daybed in the front of the house, comfy living room sofa, additional living room chairs. All times of day are beautiful times of day at this house - don't miss the amazing stars in the night sky! Walk to everything on Main Street including the excellent restaurant Aragosta. Two doors down from the Factory Tavern restaurant which makes it convenient to try to secure a last minute reservation. A few steps up the hill from the Isle Au Haut mailboat ferry to secure your 'first come, first served" ferry tickets in the morning. A short drive to Sand Beach (so much more than your typical beach - be sure to check it out), Barred Island (magical hike through moss carpeted woods to the island - go around low tide (+/- 3 hours), and take the kids to Nervous Nellie's - in addition to making and selling jam, there's entertaining and eccentric art on a life-sized scale. Also, a short drive to sailboat rentals (and other vessels) at Old Quarry Adventures. A short drive to Burnt Cove Market for groceries. We spent 2 weeks in Stonington, the 2nd week in this house - could not have been better. Make sure to take advantage of the kayaks - sunset is the best time of day - no traffic in the harbor, beautiful setting, seal spotting. Plenty of lifejackets provided for adults and kids. We've stayed in many vacation rental houses over the years in different areas of the country for family vacations and this was definitely one of the best!"Guest: Amie H.

"My husband and I have been to Maine at least 12 times over the years, and we were lucky enough to stay at this house, along with another couple, on our most recent visit. What a perfect setting! It's tucked into the pine-scented woods, yet footsteps from the rocky coast. The house itself is bright, clean, uncluttered and well equipped. Soft sheets and fluffy towels, as well as all kitchen necessities, are supplied. Highlights of our visit include sitting on the deck, sipping coffee at sunrise and wine at sunset; watching bald eagles and ospreys circle above throughout the day; spotting a seal swimming in the cove at high tide, coming up for air and then going back down again; sitting on a rock at the water's edge at low tide, reading a book and blissing out; buying soft-shell lobsters in Stonington and steamers up the road, cooking them up and feasting at the dining room table, with a backdrop of woods and water out the windows. We were lucky enough to be visiting on a couple of clear, moonless nights. The view of the star-filled sky through the skylight right above our bed (in the upstairs room) was amazing; one night we saw three meteors before we finally fell asleep. Also, the upstairs bathroom has some beautiful, very happy houseplants, and the shower is wonderful--roomy, with big windows (don't worry, no one can see inside). Be sure to drive slowly on the unpaved road leading to the house. On our second day, a neighbor called because she feared we were exceeding the 10 mph speed limit. Also, the wi-fi is so slow that we called in "no-fi" and cell reception is only slightly better. But that's okay, as long as you realize you're here to relax and unplug, not to work remotely. There's satellite TV, but it had few offerings and was difficult to figure out (maybe that's just us?). No premium channels, difficult to even find any national news. But there are plenty of excellent books on the shelves, board games to play, naps to take... The only thing that spoiled our tranquility, I'm sorry to say, were the neighborhood dogs. They barked pretty consistently and their voices echoed from around 5:30 a.m. to late at night. We tried to tune them out, but... I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a wicked good time in Maine!"Guest: Bonnie Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: October 23, 2014View listing
"A group of us used this house to do some sea duck hunting for a week and had a great time. The owner was easy to get a hold of for questions and the place was very nice to stay in. We would stay here again!"Guest: Brent Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 15, 2014View listing
