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.
