Windy Hill is a charming 3BR/2.5 bath 1900 antique home located just a short walk from Stonington Borough. Set on a hill, you will enjoy summer sea breezes and limited water views. Fall asleep listening to fog horns and relax in the gardens.
Tucked away at the end of the street, you will have the privacy you desire yet Stonington Village is just a quick 20 minute walk away. Also the home is located down the street from The Velvet Mill, which has been transformed into artist studios, and houses a variety of small artisanal shops including a bakery, cheese - maker, and brewery and more. Plus, every Saturday in the fall and winter, the Stonington Farmer's Market is held in the Great Hall of the Mill. Talk about convenient!
This spacious home boasts 3 bedrooms, a living/dining room, gourmet kitchen and large family room. But wait, that isn't everything. The home also has a private outdoor shower (seasonal) off the back porch and wrap around porch in the front of the home with rocking chairs for evening gatherings. The garden has a lovely pergola with comfortable chairs and a couch for lounging as well. And if you get in the mood for a game, there are horseshoe pits in the front yard.
Unlike the borough, this home also has plenty of parking options. We own the slip of property across the street, so not only do you have 2 parking spaces at the top of the hill by the house, there is also plenty of space in the gravel parking area for 2 more cars.
FYI - the landscaper mows every Thursday, so if you are parked at the top of the driveway, please leave the spot by the house open on Thursdays so they can get access to the backyard.
No need to bring linens or towels (including beach towels).
**note there is Air Conditioning downstairs and upstairs has window ACs in the bedrooms. Yet, because the home is on a hill and we have such nice breezes we almost never use the AC. Don't seem to need it.
You have access to the entire home. There is a washer and dryer in the basement which you are welcome to use. You are also welcome to use anything in the refrigerator in the kitchen and any food in the pantry if needed. Please let us know when items are depleted though so that we can resupply.

My husband and I live and work in New York City and travel back to Windy Hill as much as possible, If there is an emergency situation with the home while you are there, we are just a text away and have people on hand who will be able to help you in a pinch if needed. Prior to your arrival, we will connect with you so that your stay will be as smooth and relaxing as possible. e hope that you enjoy our home as much as we do.
Once you arrive, you will find that we have left a manual filled with helpful hints in the kitchen, including instructions on how to run certain appliances, wifi, and suggestions for fun things to do and places to eat.
Please remember that this is our home and not a house used simply as a rental. We ask that you leave the home exactly as you found it when you leave and that you strip all of the beds and place used towels in the bathtubs.
Also, please take all trash out to the bin by the garage as well. If you move any furniture, we ask you to replace it where it was when you arrived.
Tim and I have been Airbnb members since 2011 and have traveled all over the world using Airbnb. We love to travel, spend time with family and try new things such as grasshopper tacos and ziplining, although we do tend to travel to cities more than rural areas.
We also have our home in Connecticut on Airbnb and love sharing our wonderful seaside town with others. We try hard to provide a comfortable, clean home for our guests to enjoy. Our home is very relaxed and casual - sitting on the porch is one of the best activities you can do here. Of course, with the horseshoe pits in the front yard you never know when a friendly competition will happen. Welcome home!
