This rental is called "the Red Barn" for a reason ~ it is a converted barn for the original farmstead. We live in the historic house on the property and have a dog, cat, chickens and two horses on the premises. There are land trust trails through the woods less than 1/4 mile away and the oldest church in town, as well as a historic graveyard, is just a couple of hundred yards down the road.
Bring your bikes or rent locally as Stonington Borough with its shops, restaurants, lighthouse and beach is just 2 miles away. Mystic is also within biking distance (but with a hill) at 3-4 miles and Watch Hill and Misquamicut, RI are a 20 minute drive.
2 1/2 hours from NYC and 1 1/2 hrs from Boston by car. There's a train station in Mystic (Amtrak) and car rental available or taxi cab.
The Connecticut shoreline is beautiful and unique in all seasons with lots to see and do!
Large yard, covered porch and patio. There is a barbecue (charcoal) built into the rock. Plenty of room to wander and sit outdoors.
Interaction with Guests
We generally work days but are home in the later afternoon and evening and, weather permitting, are often outdoors. We're happy to visit with guests; we'll also leave you alone if you prefer.
Great access to Stonington Borough, Mystic, Westerly and the interstate and still quiet and peaceful.
There is absolutely no smoking indoors! That's the big one; otherwise, we expect that our guests will treat our property with respect. Children and one dog or cat are welcome but must be under adult control (seems obvious but you'd be surprised.) There is a strict limit of 6 people, including babies and children ~ extra people must be approved by us before we accept your booking request.
