Property description

The Brown House is located on the harbor of Stonington Village. Once you get there, you won't need your car! The Brown House gives you beautiful views- a back deck over the water is a peaceful and quiet retreat from the busy town. From the deck, you can watch the whole harbor as well as look out over the small islands of Merchant's Row. It is within walking distance to groceries, library, ice cream, antique shops, ferry terminal, and restaurants. The house is fully furnished with a modern kitchen, Wifi, DVD player, washer/dryer, and a landline. The two bedrooms are upstairs, face the water, and are furnished with queen-sized beds. The living room has a futon and a propane-fired Vermont Castings stove. There is also an alcove bench that could sleep a child.

Walk along the waterfront and watch the harbor bustle along or enjoy day trips to the various islands. The mail boat cruises through tiny islands and takes passengers to the village dock at Isle au Haut. During summer months it also stops at Acadia National Park on Isle au Haut (not Mount Desert). This park covers more than half of Isle au Haut and offers both easy and challenging walking trails, rugged beaches, and spectacular ocean views.

The Brown House has two off-street parking spaces. If you have kayaks or a boat, there is easy access right off of the house's deck at high tide or the public dock 75 yards away. From there, you can explore the various islands of Merchant's Row or head to Isle au Haut. There are kayak rentals nearby.
