House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps
During Stonington’s early heyday as a bustling granite
quarrying community, The Teahouse commenced serving the hard working
population of blasters, stone cutters and quarrymen. As the granite
industry waned, and the lobstering trade grew, lobstermen and
fisherman were the new patrons of this popular local establishment.
Nestled on a cascading hillside bordering Stonington Harbor and
capturing spectacular views across Stonington Harbor and beyond, it
was only natural that after The Teahouse closed its doors, it was
perfectly situated to transform into a small cottage.....and what a
The new owner has masterfully converted this former
small teahouse into a romantic, cozy getaway, considering every
detail, all the way down to dimmer switches on the lighting! Every
space is beautifully utilized, where stylish décor mixed with
original touches exudes warmth and sophistication. From modern
granite counter tops to the original claw foot tub, you will feel
right at home in this beautifully appointed home. Built-in
cushioned window seating and cabinets, pine, oak and cork flooring,
and quality furnishings throughout all add to the comfort and
coziness of your home away from home. French doors and ample
windows bring in the suns' warmth and glow, while the
gas “woodstove” relieves the early morning and evening chill.
Cathedral ceilings, graced with a small stained glass window in the
gable, bestow an open and airy feel. Superior touches throughout
the home--a flat screen TV with cable, CD and DVD player and a
collection of recent movies--promise to make your stay more than
comfortable. Call us about seeing more photos!
Situated near some of Stonington’s most beautiful homes,
Tea House Cottage is encircled by Victorians, Mansards, Farmhouses
and a variety of picturesque homes enjoying the amazing scenery.
Caring property owners have collaboratively encouraged the expansion
of a small field of lupine bordering the cottage, and surrounding
gardens, rock wall, natural ledge, and nearby spruce clad forest,
which provides a pleasurable setting – all to be enjoyed from the
Tea House’s wrap around deck, complete with seating and flower
The cottage is very well supplied. A large lobster pot
is ready for fresh lobster that can be purchased just a short walk
to the nearby lobster coop. Between the gas grill, gas stove and
mini-gourmet kitchen, you’ll enjoy meals prepared at home, while
just a short walk to downtown brings you to Stonington’s popular
restaurants. Two trail bikes are available for those more
adventurous. Guests may wish to bike to the Isle au Haut Ferry just
on the other side of the harbor and take the morning ferry over to
Isle au Haut, part of Acadia National Park, for a great day of
biking and hiking. Ample activities await throughout Deer Isle and
the surrounding communities, while The Tea House’s cozy ambiance
awaits your return. Call or email us for information on more
