Property description

This is a stunning house with beautiful views of the Deer Isle Thoroughfare. The main living area is a true great room with fireplace, game table, dining area and a very well appointed kitchen. The master bedroom with queen-size bed, is on the first floor and looks out toward the ocean and also toward a quiet cove.

On the second floor are two more bedroom, one with a queen size bed and the other with twin beds. Each upstairs bedroom has a small loft. At the top of the stairs and overlooking the great room is a loft with desk and fax machine. It is a great spot to work with your computer. A large deck faces the water and a path leads to our fabulous lobster picnic rock, The Giant's Chair, on the shore. You can swim from our rocks or walk to a little beach next door. The house will accommodate six very comfortably. If you wish to sleep more than that, we will need to discuss it. Smoking and Animals are NOT Permitted, but well-behaved children and adults are always welcome.

You will find the kitchen set up for people who enjoy cooking. There are plenty of work areas and professional pots and pans. The library is well stocked with books on the area, children's books, mysteries, and the best of the books which my book group has read over the past couple of years. There are plenty of puzzles and games. We are a family that enjoys music and games like charades and dictionary, so you will find a good stereo, but you will not find a TV. This is a place for a true vacation!

The house is located on a very private piece of land. The beautiful fishing village of Stonington is within walking distance but you are not subjected to the traffic and noise. There are fine restaurants on the island, and we keep a list of our favorites handy for you. The mail boat leaves right from Stonington for day hiking in Acadia Park on Isle Haut. The island has several good nature preserves with hiking trails. There are also tennis courts and a nine hole golf course on the island. For those interested in the arts, Haystack School of Crafts and many galleries are close by.

This is a great place for nature lovers. There are paths on the property, and the Giant's Chair, a huge rock on the shore, is a great place for an outdoor lobster feast. Regardless of what you are escaping from, we are sure you will find this home a relaxing place to spend your vacation.

If you would like to see additional pictures, I can email some to you.

Owner info

About the owner: Maine is in our blood as Judith's family descends from early island residents.

Why the Owner Chose Stonington, ME, USA:
This property is a dream for anyone who loves sailing, watching boats, or observing marine life along a rugged coast. For many years we had a boat moored in the cove off the house. While no longer active sailors, we can watch the windjammers go by, observe osprey and their young as they fledge, and visit the local art galleries. This is Maine at its best.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Judith is an avid gardener and always plants vegetables and herbs for our tenants to enjoy as well as flowers. We believe in sharing the bounty of the land.
