Property description

Harbor Heights Cottage has a premier setting right on Stonington Harbor in the quaint fishing village of Stonington, in the areas best kayaking waters. Ample rocky shoreline and crushed shell beach islands are just offshore and only minutes kayak ride away from Harbor Heights. This charming home is nestled on a gently sloping hillside, boasting gorgeous views of the harbor and many surrounding islands, including Isle au Haut (part of Acadia National Park).

Lounge on the wrap-around porch and enjoy southerly and southwesterly views, including beautiful sunsets. Relax on the spacious dock, granite ledges, gardens, and beach area or slip into one of our EIGHT kayaks. Tour the harbor or surrounding close by islands in the areas most prime kayaking waters. View the array of lobster boats and glorious sailing vessels as they pass in and out of the harbor - easily seen from inside as nearly all rooms have an ocean view.

The open floor plan has ample natural light, with kitchen, breakfast nook, spacious LR and dining room. Large french doors overlook the harbor and open to the deck. The master BR and bath are on the main floor (with glass doors opening to deck) and 4 additional bedrooms and bath upstairs. The home is decorated with antiques and local collectibles while having all the modern appliances to make your stay comfortable and convenient. All wood flooring further accentuates its charm. The home is very well supplied, including quality bedding.

Enjoy time with friends and family as this house accommodates sleeping for nine, yet cozy enough for just two.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: While originally from Maine, we currently live in Florida. We bought this home in 1998 to be able to spend more time near our family. When not there ourselves, we love sharing the home. It's a great location, a warm environment, and the kayaks are just such a treat. The nearby islands are fantastic to explore. We've worked very hard to make the home enjoyable for our guests, and it is fully supplied with everything you should need. We also try to have laundry, dish and dishwasher detergent, tin foil, baggies,etc....all those sort of things you don't want to have to buy for a short stay. We also put in comfortable and quality bedding. It's a great house!!

Why the Owner Chose Stonington, ME, USA:
Having grown up in Maine, but now living in Florida, I was homesick! So we bought a fixer upper and the whole family pitched in and helped us fully renovate this former 'lobsterman's family home'. With very few homes actually waterfront on Stonington Harbor, this home was unique and really special.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is right on the harbor, and only a few minutes walk to downtown. And the dock is fantastic....we have 8 kayaks to use! This is the best location for kayaking out to the nearby islands. We have many return guests...so I guess they like it as much as we do!
