Este charmoso, completamente renovado final de 1800 Maine casa está localizada diretamente com vista para o porto de pesca da vila de Stonington. A casa está rodeada por um jardim suavemente ondulado com belos jardins que leva até uma praia de areia, com bordas de granito. As magníficas vistas incluem navios que desfilam através da via da cidade, pinho coberto ilhas vizinhas (incluindo Isle au Haut em um dia claro) e observando as idas e vindas dos barcos de lagosta. O quintal espaçoso continua na parte de trás da casa com espaço de sobra para croquet, badmitton ou simplesmente relaxar em uma rede; amplo estacionamento fora da garagem.
Devido às grandes marés não são apenas os pontos de vista em constante mudança, mas as pequenas ilhas em frente da casa pode realmente ser alcançado a pé quando a maré está fora.
"A Fortaleza" exala um estilo confortável e acolhedor, com uma mistura de velho e novo. Embora a casa acomoda até oito pessoas, é acolhedor o suficiente para dois. Os pisos de madeira antigos, lareiras, portas de vidro jateado, antiguidades e as coleções foram misturados com mobiliário novo e uma cozinha moderna e casas de banho renovadas. Cores abundam dentro e por fora!
Ao sair do segundo andar suite principal para um belo deck / varanda com vista para uma vista deslumbrante! Lá embaixo, um anexo de um quarto suíte de-lei / convidado w / sala de estar privada, cozinha e banheiro adicionar versatilidade, privacidade e espaço para se espalhar.
Desfrute das suas refeições na cozinha comer-in, a sala de jantar formal, o sol da varanda, ou piqueniques no quintal com vista para uma vista deslumbrante sobre o porto.
A localização, design e conforto de esta bela casa são numerosos demais para mencionar. Aqueça-se as vistas magníficas a partir do convés e quintal, nadar na praia, explorar as lojas exclusivas e restaurantes nas aldeias de Stonington e Deer Isle, ou simplesmente relaxar e aproveitar o sol e brisa do oceano; ele não fica melhor do que isso! Um verdadeiro, clássico Maine beira-mar!
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.
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.
We loved everything about the property! The location is perfect. We had front row seats to the working waterfront. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. The weather was perfect the entire week. We had family fly in from Arizona and Wisconsin and they loved the waterfront and kayaking in the harbor. The lobster boat races were a bonus! I highly recommend this location if you are interested in a small lobstering community and small town feel.
Loved the home, location and cleanliness. Sallie had the home stocked with everything we needed. We had a wonderful family vacation and will return.
Five friends and I spent a glorious week in late summer at the Stronghold. The house, itself, offered every comfort, convenience, and delight to the eye. We could easily walk all around the town, and we also made enjoyable day trips along scenic and reliable routes. The Opera House offered unique entertainment, restaurants plied us with delectable food, and local galleries and shops, as well as a farmers' and artisans' market, provided opportunities to browse or buy. An adventure on a lobster boat gave us views of the Bay and its nearby islands, along with an informative and personable narrative from the captain. Finally, the warmth of the locals added the icing to the cake.
This was our fifth year renting the Stronghold and it was fabulous again this year. The location is perfect and there is nothing you would want that isn't provided at the house. We love that you can walk to downtown which includes a few shops and restaurants. We love watching the process of lobstering that takes place all around us, and the surprise appearance of a schooner or two in the back yard is really a treat. Hope to stay there again next year.
