Explore Down East or just relax in this lovingly restored guesthouse cottage in Stonington, Maine. New throughout, the guesthouse offers exceptionally comfortable, secluded living indoors, or outdoors on the cathedral-ceilinged screened in porch or wraparound deck.
With water views overlooking Green Head Cove at the western end of Stonington harbor, the guesthouse is a short walk from town and ideally suited for exploring the Maine coast, either by land or by sea.
Situated on the owner's one and a quarter acre shorefront lot, the guesthouse has views of the harbor and overlooks naturalized flower and vegetable gardens, complete with a large, granite-rimmed lily pond with waterfall.
Tastefully decorated and meticulously maintained, the guesthouse cottage has high-speed Internet, cable TV, off street parking, crystal clear well water and year-round central heat. It is available for rental year round.
Recent updates include a new deck and exterior and interior painting. New screens and a fresh coat of paint for the screened in porch. A new tile floor in the kitchen and entry way. A powerful new WiFi router gives a strong signal throughout the house and on the deck. And a flat-screen TV in the living room and bedroom. We've also made small changes for convenience and livability as a result of our living in the Guest House for 5 weeks this winter as the bathroom in our main house was being renovated. (Every owner with rental property should do this from time to time.)
Stonington is a working, commercial fishing village located in the heart of downeast Maine. A variety of activities await visitors to Stonington. Coastal schooners call at Stonington almost daily. Pinky schooners, kayaks and power boats are available for day trips. Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park, is 40 minutes away by water. The island is criss-crossed with hiking trails. A nearby beach is open to the public for exploring or for a bracing plunge in the clear waters of Penobscot Bay.
The guest house features sleeping accommodations for two in a king size bed upstairs. A full bath with oversize shower and Corian counter is also upstairs. The guest house is provided with sheets, blankets (for those cool evenings) and a full complement of towels.
Downstairs features a large open living space with a fully equipped kitchen, including dishes and cooking utensils. The living room is light and airy with over sized windows looking out onto the deck and the harbor beyond. A screened in porch, ideal for dining or just relaxing, is accessed through a sliding-glass door off the living room.

Year Purchased: 1986
About the owner: We purchased the property in 1986 and completely renovated the main house. We moved to Stonington in 1989 and have lived and worked here year-round ever since. The guest house was completely renovated in 1993-94. Updating and improving the property and buildings is an ongoing labor of love.
Why the Owner Chose Stonington, ME, USA:
We first arrived in Stonington by water on our sail boat. We were captivated by the town, which combines incredible beauty, with a down-to-earth working-waterfront.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Natural beauty, lots of fun things to do in Stonington and the environs. Excellent restaurants, lobster and seafood, and a remarkable collection of painters, artists and crafts people. There are a large number of conserved areas on Deer Isle, several with beaches and most with hiking trails.
