  • The Best!

    "Our family had a wonderful time - your home away from home was perfect. Housekeeping had the house spotless! This is a great location. We brought kayaks to paddle in the tidal cove, enjoyed the decks, screen porch and lobster delivered to our door by the neighbor. Check out the local food co-op for groceries. We saw fox, deer, eagles and a heron right there. Many hiking trails nearby, especially to Barren island at low tide. Our family with 2 teenage boys had a great vacation. The owners were great to work with. Definitely would recommend this rental."

  • Gorgeous Get-Away!

    "I always had a dream of visiting a "little fishing town in Maine"...Stonington did not disappoint. Doug and Leslie's cottage was fabulous, something you might see in a magazine. It was beautifully decorated both inside and out. The gardens were gorgeous and the front porch, oh so relaxing. Every accommodation one might need was there. A very helpful notebook was left to give some guidelines and fun adventures to try. Doug and Leslie were very friendly and always willing to help in any way they could, yet giving total privacy. The view from the front porch was one of a breathtaking beauty that this Texas girl had never experienced before...the sights and sounds of the lobster boats were amazing. Downtown Stonington was within walking distance and we walked it every day. The people were very friendly and it was nice to visit with the shop owners and get some historical background. We took the mail boat over to Isle au Haute and were impressed with the beauty of the harbor as we looked at Stonington from the water. I definitely got my wish of visiting a "little fishing town in Maine"! If I ever have the opportunity to return, I will definitely stay in Doug and Leslie's guest house....it was perfect! Thank you for making our stay so wonderful."

  • Great week in Maine

    "We had a wonderful stay this past week visiting our daughter. Three generations had a relaxing time staying at Green Head Forge. The location was so convenient for a walk or short drive to town, and yet had a very private feeling. We were all very comfortable, and found everything we needed for our week in Stonington."

  • The best waterfront vacation rental in Stonington Maine

    "The best waterfront vacation rental home in Stonington, Maine is "The Stronghold." We used this home as our central headquarters for our 35th wedding anniversary, family vacation. The owner has gone to great effort to make this home an exceptional beauty and the most memorable resort experience. Standing amongst neighboring, gray siding homes stands this magnificent, recently renovated masterpiece. Located on a private lane on Stonington's waterfront, you are welcomed with an inviting back porch, complete with conversational chairs, windchimes, and croquet for the manicured front or rear yard gaming. The waterfront has a magnificent quarried stone bulkhead and flowering landscaped yard, with two kayaks waiting for you to explore the harbor a nearby islands. The owner, Sallie Strong, has literally thought of everything. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill are on site waiting for your cooking preference. Typically Maine rentals in this area are austere. However this home has Wi-Fi, multiple TVs with DVDs or cable. The duel kitchens were especially useful for our multi families' food storage, prep and cleanup. The main kitchen even has a trash compactor. There are multiple indoor and outdoor rooms for relaxing, watching the lobster boats in the harbor, and enjoying leisurely or formal meals. We admired the decorating as every niche had a unique curio, painting, photo or nautical artifact to admire. The bright room colors and comfortable beds were specially inviting. We have rented four different homes on Deer Isle in recent years. While this home was the most expensive to rent, it was by far the best value. Given the ideal location, the amenities, and the overall experience, I would highly recommend it."
