Waterfront Stone Cottage With Spectacular View Of The Thimble Islands

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Italian villa type stone cottage on waterfront. It's truly a breathtakingly beautiful spot. From the front of the house, there's a great view of the Thimble Islands. There's nothing more relaxing than to sit on the rocking chairs on the front porch, view the islands and watch the sunsets. There are many special spots to enjoy, the hammock overlooking the waterfront, the back steps of the house that connect the upper and lower gardens and the the porch off the lower floor of the cottage. The cottage has 2 bedrooms upstairs, an eat-in kitchen, and a large living room with a fireplace and a baby grand piano. Downstairs there is a bedroom and sitting room / office suite.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

Perched over the water, the Stone House is a very special place - the house feels historic, and the house & grounds have been lovingly cared-for. Quiet and peaceful, the views of the Thimbles & sunsets are spectacular. Plus herons, egrets and kingfishers!

Heavenly location

  • 2 of 5

While the scenery was breathtaking, we found the home dirty and in disrepair.

Amazing spot

We had a wonderful time hanging out here in Stony Creek. Sunsets were amazing, swimming in the sound was fun. Great location and helpful hosts.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best getaways of my life. The house is extremely cosy and right on the sea. We stayed for 3 nights and it was not at all enough.

Rooms with a View (All of them!)

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Stone Cottage. It continues to be one of our very favorite places in the world. Having recently retired, we have more time to relax, enjoy our family and friends, visit local sights, etc. Staying at the Stone Cottage allows us to do this. The views from each room are spectacular. Views from the front and sides are of the Thimble Islands. The rear windows face European style gardens, well tended by a gardener during our stay.

Although we had an exceptionally rainy Spring, we were never at a loss for things to do. The fireplace kept us cozy as we read, friends and family visited, walks into the charming town Stony Creek were always interesting, and the Long Wharf Theater is only a short drive away.

Anne is always available to answer any questions. We requested use of the barbeque and not only was it right there for us, but she placed brand new tools with it for our use. We felt welcomed into their special cottage but also had the privacy we needed. The additional living area in the lower level gave our grandchildren a sleeping space that they referred to as "sleeping on a ship" since the windows directly overlook the LI Sound.

Since there is a long walk up the private driveway, high heels are not recommended! That was OK with us. . . we totally enjoyed our privacy and wearing our comfortable shoes.

Car: necessary

The house is on the end of a private road in Stony, Creek, CT. Stony is a very charming little town. It has the ambience of a small seaside village. The town has many attractions... the Thimble Islands, the Stony Creek Puppet House, the Stony Creek Museum, town docks with boat launch (narrated cruise giving the history of the islands depart hourly), playground and public library. Stony Creek is 15 minutes away from New Haven. House would be an ideal spot to stay for parents weekends/homecomings/graduations of Yale University.
