Very nice updates while retaining the charm of a 100 year old Maine Captains house. 5/10 The laundry room w/spanking new front loading washer/dryer is done. 6/2010 Finally we're on to landscaping. We've added an arbor entrance w/honeysuckles, climbing hydrangea, ornamental grasses, etc, & a 12x18 slate & river rock patio off of the sun room, all overlooking the backyard, which is also where the dog run is set up. The property is surrounded by old growth pines, Norway spruce, fir trees, wild rose bushes & unique ledges, that we're enhancing w/new gardens. All beds have new linens, quilts, allergen mattress pads, pillows & headboards. Book a private boat charter w/us - you can walk to where we'll pick you up from - for a lighthouse tour, dinner cruise, seal & birdwatching, clamming, Island picnic, whatever your heart desires, on our 37' converted lobster yacht w/full on board facilities. You're not here yet? We'll leave the brand new motion sensor lights on for you!
Welcome! We know that you'll enjoy this property as much as we do - finding fun and happy surprises throughout. The property is situated to take in all of the harbor happenings of both working & pleasure craft, but removed enough to be relaxing & entertaining. Beyond the immediate harbor view is Penobscot Bay, both Barred Island & Crockett Cove Nature Preserves(both w/great hiking trails), & the beautiful Camden Hills. There is a great pocket beach, directly across the road, that our neighbors have graciously given permission for our rental guest to share. Our covered front porch w/3 cushioned wicker rockers, & small dining area will draw you out for Burnt Cove's famous sunsets we're so fortunate to have a birds eye view of.
You'll enter through the Sun room, which will quickly become a favorite spot. It sports a bistro table set & 2 wicker chairs.Next is the completely renovated kitchen w/new hardwood flooring, lots of new cherry cabinets & all new appliances. You'll find the kitchen to be fully stocked for all of your cooking & baking needs. Off the kitchen is the dining room with oak furnishings, including seating for 8, a buffet & bar. This room also serves as a great spot to check your email, although internet access is possible throughout the house with our Wi-Fi connection. If you must communicate with the outside world while on vacation, there is also an answering & fax machine - with free unlimited, nationwide calling on our phones.
The living room is next, with it's over sized picture window,(& binoculars) taking in all of the harbor happenings of a working waterfront. It is outfitted w/ comfortable leather furniture & a fully equipped entertainment system (DVD/5 CD changer/I-pod Dock/surround sound)- We also have board games, puzzles, & books from local authors on hand. Next is the hall which does double duty as an office/writing area & also looks out to the beach & harbor - our tabletop telescope has found its home there. Rounding off the down stairs is a combination 1/2 bath (flush & sink) & all new laundry room, w/stackable washer/dryer set, iron/ironing board, etc. There is also a direct entry, one car garage.
On the second floor you'll find the full bath with a tub/ shower combo. There are 3 bedrooms, the 1st has 2 new twin beds, the 2nd has a queen size memory foam bed, (both rooms with harbor views), & the 3rd & largest bedroom, has a California King pillow top bed. This bedroom has a flat screen TV with cable connection, DVD, & its own half bath, (but not a water view). All bedrooms are good sized & inviting, with plenty of closet space and bureau's. You will find our Burnt Cove house to be thoughtfully equipped in all aspects.
The large backyard awaits w/a gas grill, picnic table, 2 great chaise lounges (on wheels), a water view, & a run set up for the dog. The equally large front yard looks out over the cove and the beach. Our home is a great spot to reconnect with your own family & a wonderful location from which to explore all that Stonington & the islands beyond have to offer. Kayaks can be affordably rented here on the island & the pocket beach makes for a perfect launching spot to explore the nature preserves & other islands - or you can take either a class or guided tour. We're less than 2 miles to downtown Stonington. We keep a very helpful directory of menus from area restaurants, island highlights and upcoming events you may be interested in. From past experience, we've found renting from Saturday to Saturday works best, so we'll follow suit with this home.
Keep checking our site for updated photos, but book right away to ensure your spot this summer. You won't be disappointed.
