  • Serenity

    "We loved our stay at the Forge. Being "off the grid" was just what we needed. Have been to Stonington many times before but really loved being close to town and the beach. We hiked the Island Heritage Trust trails and enjoyed packing a lunch and finding a beautiful spot to have it. Did our mailboat trip to Isle Au Haut to hike. One of my favorite days of our trip. We had perfect weather. My most favorite of all were the stars!!!! We could watch them outside and then again while lying in bed. Try to plan your time there around a new moon. Thank you Wilda for sharing your place with us. Thanks for letting us have our black lab Kiva . The home is private and comfy. At first I didn't know about the no tv or cell phone but I loved it. Should happen more often!!!! Hope to be back again."

  • Best views for the fireworks

    "We had a great time staying in Torri's house in Stonington. The location is great with superb views of the harbor and the islands from the living room and a large deck. We found the kitchen well supplied; the cooking stove is gas, not electric, which we always appreciate. The house has comfortable beds. Everything was clean and well arranged when we arrived. We found the cell phone connection patchy on the island, but that in itself can be an opportunity of sorts. The drive to Acadia national park is about 80 mins - the first half of the drive is very beautiful. All in all we had a great, relaxing stay, slept well, saw a lot, and would recommend both the house and Stonington to all our friends."

  • Most beautiful spot on the island!

    "This was a fabulous home for our vacation. The location was perfect and the views were unsurpassed. We enjoyed sitting on the master bedroom balcony each morning and each evening, watching the boats. There is outdoor seating all over the house, not just off the master bedroom. There is even a sunroom so you can enjoy the view even if it rains. The house was large enough for our family of 5, including 3 adult children. The additional apartment was cleverly designed so it could either be a completely closed off private apartment, with its own entrance and deck, or it can kept open and act as a bedroom that flows with the rest of the house. We were worried that one of our kids would be isolated, but it worked out well. The house included everything from cooking supplies to towels to games. My husband and I are kayakers, so we were especially excited when the owner let us use her kayaks and canoe. Stonington was a perfect little town. It was peaceful with just enough vacation-y things to do, mostly within walking distance. We walked to the area restaurants (Fisherman's Friend was our favorite) and to the local shops, and made quite a few trips to 44 North coffee shop, which we loved so much, we are now ordering the coffee online. If you have to drive anywhere, it is always scenic and pleasurable. We drove out to Bar Harbor one day, about an hour drive, and not only was it a great day trip, the drive there and back was beautiful. There were just a few cons, and these are pretty minor compared to all the pros: First, the owner lived on the premises, which was kind of awkward. Sallie is super sweet and was always very helpful, but it was hard not to feel self-conscious. Neighbors and guests and their children often roamed around the property. The windows were always open (for air) and the yard is small, so we felt pretty exposed at times. The third con is that all the indoor chairs were uncomfortable and the master bedroom bed had springs poking through. Also, both the owner and the neighbor had dogs that ran through the backyard. And although we do like pets, we signed a "no pets on premises" lease, so I didn't expect to see dogs squatting down in the garden. The last con is that there was no cell service inside the house and wi-fi was very weak. These are all very minor things but I thought they were worth mentioning. I would still strongly recommend the Stronghold for a family vacation. It is the most beautiful house and the most perfect spot on the island."
