vacation rental description

History, charm, location, and view converge to make “Amy’s
Cottage” a delightful retreat to enjoy Stonington’s picturesque
seaside town. Formerly home to local historian Clayton Gross, the
home itself shares a unique piece of American Architectural
history. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, a national population
increase created a large demand for housing. Stonington, too, was
growing quickly. Its flourishing granite industry swelled this
small seaside town into a bustling community that provided granite
to such notable structures as the Rockefeller Center, Smithsonian
Institute, and George Washington Bridge, to name just a few. It was
during this time that a national trend developed of buying kit
houses. “Kit Homes” would be ordered by catalogue, arrive at the
nearest train depot, and then delivered by horse-drawn cart, ship,
or truck. During the period of 1900 to 1939 Sears Roebuck & Company
sold approximately 50,000 kit homes nationally, with “Amy’s Cottage”
being one of these treasured homes--the Sears 1905 Fullerton model.
Many of these homes are now listed on the Historic Registry of Homes.

Sears kit homes were well built and comprised such unique features
as built-in ironing boards, china cabinets, room dividing
colonnades, Hoosier cabinets, telephone niches, high quality wood
flooring and trim, and detailed lighting and hardware. Amy’s Cottage
is no exception. The current owner is a professional decorative
painter and has further heightened the home’s warmth and charm with
faux, antique and hand painted finishes around the home. A nice
array of local collectible, antiques, charming decor and original
art enhance the home's appeal. Retaining the features of the
earlier days, the large, eat-in kitchen still contains the old gas
stove, metal sink, original cabinets and built-ins. An adjacent
living room with French doors opens to the foyer, with its elegant
stairwell leading to the second story. Upstairs three enchanting
bedrooms - two bedrooms with queen sized beds, and the third bedroom
with twin bed and twin sized futon, provide complete comfort.

Situated at the foothill to “Stonington Mountain”, Amy’s Cottage
begins the gradual descent of homes which cascade down to Stonington
Harbor. Gazing southward, a small church with its prominent steeple
guides the eye onward to the beautiful ocean vista beyond. The
ocean views and glimpses are enjoyed from several vantage points
throughout the home, with the best views upstairs, or out on the
enclosed front porch or deck along the side of the home. Call or
email us for information on more photos!

Walk to town and to beautiful Stonington Harbor to enjoy so much of
what the former owner, local historian Clayton Gross, sought to
preserve in his writings, including Island Chronicles: Accounts of
Days Past in Deer Isle and Stonington (1977) and Steel over
Eggemoggin: A History of the Deer Isle-Sedgwick Bridge (1989).
Enjoy samples of his work displayed in the home, or the multitude of
other books left for guests’ enjoyment.

You’ll treasure your time is this historic home. Its bright and
sunlit rooms provide a cheerful atmosphere to enjoy the beauty of
this spectacular area.
