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."

"Green Landing was the perfect choice for our family vacation. We were a family of eight--2 sets of grandparents, our daughter and son-in-law, and our two grandchildren. Green Landing is set at the waters edge of the Damariscotta River where we watched the lobster boats haul in their catch each morning and evening. We could enjoy this view from either the expansive wrap around porch of the main house or on the dock just below the house. Our grandchildren loved crabbing off the dock and trying to catch lobster with their fishing poles. There is a huge table with chairs on the porch where we ate lobster and corn on the cob. In fact, the setting was so perfect that we ate most of our meals at the house because we couldn't find a restaurant that had comparable views! The East Boothbay General Store is withing a five minute walk and is definitely worth a visit. There was expansive green space for the children to run and play and plenty of games and puzzles for both adults and children. The location is ideal because you feel as though you're in your own private sanctuary, yet Boothbay Harbor and all its activity is minutes away. Nell, the owner, was a delight and promptly replaced the old modem with a new one so we would have Wifi. Green Landing is a beautiful, magical place that exceeded our expectations, and we would most definitely return."

"This lovely condo exceeded our expectations for a ski weekend with our 2 adult children.
We found it spotless and well organized. The owners have clearly paid great attention to detail, making sure that almost every amenity is provided.
The layout was great, with plenty of room to enjoy being together with the open kitchen, living room and eating area. Great, quiet location. Very convenient to Bethel and Sunday River. The owners were extremely responsive and helpful. A wonderful place to come "home" to at the end of the ski day! In fact, we liked it so much that we opted to eat in, rather than go out for dinners. We will look forward to a return visit!"

"John, Priscilla and Suze (manager) were all wonderful and very responsive and helpful.
The house is tucked away in a nice neighborhood and as other reviews mentioned, it is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. It is clean, comfortable and spacious with everything you need. Nice kitchen, great washer/dryer.
Getting to Bar Harbor can take up to 20-25 minutes with traffic during the busier times. There are wonderful hikes and interesting things to do on this side of MDI, so no need to drive to the other side all the time.
All in all, a lovely spot for a wonderful vacation!"
