Stonington - Cottage in the Borough close to Mystic, CT
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Absolutely beautiful and serene!

  • 5 of 5

When I arrived at the Boathouse my first impression was "what an absolutely adorable cottage"! The cottage is immaculate and so charming! The hydrangeas were in full bloom! The pictures on this site are a true representation of the place but really it is more magnificent in person! I loved being in the boro and spent every morning sitting in the window seat drinking my coffee watching the town come alive! The owner is extremely cordial and very accommodating. The added benefit of off-street parking was the extra caveat. After renting this cottage I have decided to make Stonington Borough my forever! Every time I drive by the boathouse I can't help but smile! This is truly a hidden gem as is the town! Thank you Deb and Tom for everything!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at The Boathouse for the off season between selling and buying a new home. It was very comfortable and came with everything you need for an extended stay. Thoroughly enjoyed gas fireplace on cold mornings and farmers market on weekends. Convenient to Stonington village with great restaurants and also 5 minutes to I 95. Owners were quite accommodating and took care of any problems quickly. Highly recommend this place for both short term or long term rental.

Stonington Jewel

  • 5 of 5

The Boat House exceeds all expectations with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, thoughtful design, and even a Keurig coffee maker! Storage abounds. Location is perfect for a stroll through Stonington Borough which has great restaurants, shops and water views. The Dog Watch restaurant is steps away. A waterside gazebo in the Borough is a great place for quiet reflection. The property is clean and well maintained by the owners who obviously take pride in their charming cottage, and who are always available, friendly and helpful. .

This is a really great place to stay. The cottage is very attractive and comfortable. The location is terrific. My husband and I stayed here with our young son and had a really wonderful time. The owner is very accommodating.

Location,location, location! My stay at this property was everything I wanted during my visit to Stonington. The location is at the beginning of the Village which gives you a pleasant walk through the Village ending at the Lighthouse and Dubois Beach with a magnificant view of the ocean. All the way, you will find eateries, shops of all sorts, and pleasant residents to chat with. The owners of the property accommodate in any way that they can. I look forward to returning to this charming accommodation.
