"We loved this well-maintained house. It was perfect for 2 families made up of 4 parents and six "kids" aged 25, 23, 21, 21, 18, and 15! The dining room table was long enough to fit all 10 of us for meals and the kitchen was large enough to handle multiple cooks. The house was well stocked with any dishes or pans we needed and had every spice we wanted. The linens were great and the linen room had more towels than we could ever need. The street was quiet while being just a few blocks from the town shops and restaurants. Parking was very limited (about 1.5 cars could fit) but we had no trouble finding parking in the same block. We want to come back!!!"

The best waterfront vacation rental in Stonington Maine
"The best waterfront vacation rental
home in Stonington, Maine is "The Stronghold." We used this home as our central headquarters for our 35th wedding anniversary, family vacation. The owner has gone to great effort to make this home an exceptional beauty and the most memorable resort experience. Standing amongst neighboring, gray siding homes stands this magnificent, recently renovated masterpiece. Located on a private lane on Stonington's waterfront, you are welcomed with an inviting back porch, complete with conversational chairs, windchimes, and croquet for the manicured front or rear yard gaming. The waterfront has a magnificent quarried stone bulkhead and flowering landscaped yard, with two kayaks waiting for you to explore the harbor a nearby islands.
The owner, Sallie Strong, has literally thought of everything. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill are on site waiting for your cooking preference. Typically Maine rentals in this area are austere. However this home has Wi-Fi, multiple TVs with DVDs or cable. The duel kitchens were especially useful for our multi families' food storage, prep and cleanup. The main kitchen even has a trash compactor. There are multiple indoor and outdoor rooms for relaxing, watching the lobster boats in the harbor, and enjoying leisurely or formal meals.
We admired the decorating as every niche had a unique curio, painting, photo or nautical artifact to admire. The bright room colors and comfortable beds were specially inviting.
We have rented four different homes on Deer Isle in recent years. While this home was the most expensive to rent, it was by far the best value. Given the ideal location, the amenities, and the overall experience, I would highly recommend it."

"It was a week in paradise. The weather was beautiful, the privacy undisturbed. The calm waters of the pond were so inviting that I swam a couple of times a day. Beautiful scenery, a lot of places to visit on the Mount Desert Island, the land of Acadia national park. Nice local gift galleries and shops. The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable, has everything you need for your getaway in terms of the household items. We loved the wood stove and the grill outside on the patio. I especially loved the hammock for reading my novel, so perfectly positioned to catch the afternoon sun."

"We loved the Northridge townhouse. We were very impressed with the cleanness, comfort of the beds and the helpfulness of the owners. The Barkers provided great insight into hiking, biking, restaurants and more. The extras at the house were so nice (for example a basket of books about Acaida, laundry room with detergent and more) We truly felt at home during our vacation. It is also nice the townhouse is so close to Acaida entrance and downtown Bar Harbor."
