Just as described. Bright, cheery, well appointed. One flight of fairly steep stairs to access apt. Tough to haul a big suitcase up - my husband had to take care of this jjob. Landry between two apts. Very close to pier and most of activity. One of our favorite places this trip.

This place is newly renovated. Full kitchen and swell comfortable bed. Seemed quite expensive for locale and season but I assume it was market rate. Tough market if so. I would have ordered to deal more directly with the owner and 10am check time made me feel very rushed and I would have apirecustex s Kirk’s accomdation on that point.

This is just the perfect place for a Stonington experience. The apartment is clean, comfortable, well stocked and so convenient to walking around town, local hiking and visiting the small towns in this area. We caught a local outdoor performance, enjoyed dinner at Fin & Fern, explored Deer Island and the Blue Hill Peninsula (there are many printed local guides that are far better than anything I found online so leave room in your plans for options you'll find when you arrive) took the ferry to hike Isle De Haut (highly recommended) and cooked a fresh lobster dinner with the supplies from the apartment. That was the absolutely best thing about this vrbo. Colie has EVERYTHING you'll need. Since most of you reading this have likely never cooked your own lobster, I'll give you the recap of our experience. You absolutely can do this. We're no experts, so you don't have to be either! Drive over to the Stonington Lobster Co Op (be aware they close at 4 so get there early). Go into the building on the right and the people there will give you a paper bag for your lobsters. You take that bag over to the dock and the people there will pull up the crate of lobsters from under the pier and help you choose what you need. The lobsters (with claws rubber banded for safety) go into the bag and you take it back to the Co Op to get it weighed. Take your lobsters home and put them in the fridge until dinner time. There are two giant lobster pots in the foyer of the apartment and a burner/stand to put them on. The stand connects to the propane tank. To turn on the propane, you need to turn both dials - the one on the tank and the red one on the connector. So get it all set up in the parking lot, put a couple of inches of water in the pot and crank up the heat. Once the water is boiling, put your lobsters in. Ask the guys you buy them from how long to cook them for the amount you purchased to get the best advice. After that amount of time, pull them out (again all the gear you need is at the apartment) and enjoy on the picnic table outside. Groceries are limited in Stonington as fas as we could find, so do your shopping for what goes with your lobsters ahead of time. If you're considering a true lobster village stay, this is the place for you!! Oh, and we were in apartment 1 but the early morning noise was not a problem at all.

The rental is very comfortable and clean; clearly recently renovated so bathroom and kitchen are very modern and well-equipped. The location is excellent...right in the village and easy walk to the restaurants and stores (if you don't know Stonington, it is a small fishing village so there are only a few of these). The description mentioned that the front apt. might be slightly noisier than the rear, since it's on the main road, but I found it quiet and no issue (only a little bit of early morning traffic from fisherman starting the day). The two apartments are on second floor of building with a retail space on first floor - a kayak rental co. -- which was never an issue with any noise. I was able to meet owner Collie on my way out and enjoyed a pleasant conversation about the area.

I was scheduled to take a birding boat trip on the Isle au Haut ferry, so this apartment was perfect—I could leave my car at the apartment and easily walk to town and to the ferry. Both are literally just a few minutes’ walk. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable. The kitchen has all the basics for two people, and I had everything I needed to do some light cooking. The apartment (I stayed in #2) is on the second floor with some peeks across the neighbor’s roofs to the harbor. Stonington is beautiful and this apartment makes taking advantage of the shops, restaurants, and boat trips so easy.
