About the property

From 5* Review: "spartan 21st century"

This hundred year old home is a 15 minute stroll over a picturesque footbridge, into the heart of the Village. The house has been divided into two single bedroom units, one upstairs, the other downstairs.

I am currently renting the first floor apartment. It has its own entrance through the back door and can accommodate up to four people. The bedroom has a queen size bed and there is a sleeper sofa in the living room. (Please note: Bathroom access for bedroom is through the living room.) The bathroom has a tub with shower. Though there is no dishwasher or laundry service, there is a full kitchen, TV, free WiFi, and access to a spacious yard equipped with table and chairs for outside dining. Window fans and a cross breeze provide ventilation. On street parking. Property owner lives on site in a cottage at the rear of the property.

The Village hosts great restaurants and shops, Stonington Lighthouse Museum, Library, playground, La Grua Arts and Cultural Center, CT’s only commercial fishing fleet, and your summer stay comes with a free seasonal pass to Dubois Beach at the Point. Extensive trails for nature walks nearby.

Be sure to visit the Stonington Village Farmer’s Market: Every Sat., 9:00 a.m.-noon from May through the end of Oct. On Nov. 1st the Farmer’s Market moves indoors to the Velvet Mill, 22 Bayview Ave., 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The Velvet Mill is a 10 minute walk and in addition to housing the winter farmer’s market, is a creative community of entrepreneurs & small business, Arts & Crafts, Health & Healing services, artisan bakery, micro brewery, and weekend crafts and vintage market.

In Mystic, you will find the Mystic Seaport, the Mystic Aquarium, a YMCA, and plenty of shops and restaurants. Golf courses are 15 minutes away. Rhode Island beaches are just 15-20 minutes away (12 miles). Foxwoods Casino and Factory Store Mall and Mohegan Sun Casino and Performance Center are also approximately 15-20 minutes away.

10 minute drive to Mystic or Westerly Amtrak train stations, as well as I-95.

Great location, Older style but very clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the apartment and the property. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. First time to Stonington, and this property is in a nice neighborhood, and it is a walk or short bike or car ride into town. Don't worry about parking, there is plenty there right on the street, which is not busy and easy to park on. The biking in Stonington and North Stonington is really great, several of the country roads are not crowded with traffic, and the beaches in Westerly are within reach. The apartment itself is spacious, with high ceilings and simple decor without clutter. There is a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room. Nice wood floors, older style architecture, not fancy, but everything is clean and works well. The back porch was also great for keeping the bikes out of the rain. Nice bright space with lots of windows in the living room and bedroom, but curtains work for privacy, and there is no apartment next door, so you don't have the feeling of other renters next to you. Dorothy was friendly and helpful, and really great about check in/check out arrangements. We plan to come back again!

Above and Beyond!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Dorothy's place and are so thankful we chose her to accommodate us. She was beyond helpful with recommendations and her communication was always prompt. We had left behind a charger by accident and she didn't hesitate to reach out and send it back to us right away. Really thankful for how above and beyond she goes for her guests!
