Charming studio/loft in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This historic studio is more charming and lovely than in the photos. And it’s within a block of a wonderful coffee place ( open early) and Noah’s restaurant- downtown Stonington is all within a few blocks! It’s full of the artist/owner’s real paintings, New England charm, and it had everything we needed. We’d rent it for the whole summer!

We slept with the windows open ( in a comfortable bed with nice linens) and had wonderful early morning walks to the point and all around town. It’s a lovely, peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

I should note that the bathroom is small, but fine, and there is a large table but no sofa downstairs ( it’s outside)- just as pictured, but this may not be for everyone.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed out visit to Stonington and the location was perfect for walking to our family reunion events, shops, restaurants and water.

Deb was helpful and flexible as our number of our party shifted, providing an air mattress and being available if we needed anything.

Lovely Seaside Mother-Daughter Trip

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the Artist's Studio in Stonington. Deborah was a wonderful host, and she was wonderful about answering the various questions that I had during our first few days. Deborah is also an invaluable resource for ideas of where to go for sightseeing and good food, and my daughter and I just enjoyed walking to The Point, which is down the street. The neighborhood is tranquil and quiet, and we slept like logs until morning. The amenities are clear, but we also brought our own coffee maker, larger toaster oven, and a popcorn popper, for our over-one-week stay, so that we could prepare many of our meals, like breakfast, and although the refrigerator is small, we found that the local grocery store had plenty of appropriately-sized items, such as our favorite almond milk, cream cheese, and fruits. There is plenty of countertop space for preparing sandwiches, and the sink is very convenient for keep dishes clean and out of the way. Deborah provides linens and dishes, and there were plenty of blankets and pillows for us. We found the mattresses to be more comfortable than any other place than we have stayed. Each morning, we had a tradition of opening the french doors to the garden while we prepared and ate breakfast, and it was just so peaceful. Parking on the side streets was not a problem for us, but the weekends are a little busier. We stay out late, so it may be a challenge only if you are night owls like us. We were cool enough on the hotter, more humid nights, often with just the fan blowing for some breeze and white noise. We kept the windows upstairs open during the day to circulate air upstairs. The shower was great, with adequate water pressure, and the curtain "door" to the bathroom was adequate for us. We really hope to return to the cottage again in the future. We really appreciated Deborah's hospitality, and it was a wonderful week! I highly recommend this studio, and it is clear that Deborah takes a lot of pride in the cottage and her grounds. It was a pleasure to stay someplace that I consider to be upscale and well-kept. It looks just like or even better than the photos. We loved it!

A must stay! Fantastic property.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been coming to Stonington for about 6 years now and this was our first stay (and won’t be our last) at the Artist Studio. What a fabulous property and perfect location! The studio is bright and airy and has great artistic charm. Deborah is a gracious host and really worked to enhance our stay. The studio is just across the street from the harbor and waterfront access- even better, steps away from the best restaurants and bars. Don’t hesitate, book it now! Thanks again- see you next year!

Affordable, Beautiful, Great Location in Stonington Borough

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I decided to try this place after staying at the more expensive Stonington Inn a few years ago. We had an amazing time here. Not only is it more affordable but it is a great location in the borough and perfectly placed. The interior was roomy and beautifully done. We are active during the day but if it had rained it would be a great place to lay low as well. The painters studio is in the backyard of a large house and has its own entrance. Two things to note is the patio area is in the backyard of the larger house so not 100% private but was never and issue for us as the owner is a wonderful woman. The 2nd thing is for tall people as you go up the stairs to the bedroom and bath on the 2nd floor you have to duck down on the last couple of steps so you dont hit your head on the ceiling. This didnt bother us as we are shorter and younger but something to keep in mind if your bothered by that sort of thing. The location is perfect in the middle of town and we walked or biked to everything we wanted to do.
