Inn on the Harbor, Stonington, Maine...

This is the quaint fishing village of Stonington, Maine.

And this is Inn on the Harbor, an incredible 13 room waterfront inn which exudes luxury in a very unpretentious form. I went to take photos at precisely 4:36 pm (high tide) yesterday since the water rises up beneath the large deck. With a pier foundation, every inch of high tide matters! Though with a convertible on a gorgeous sunny day, my job is sometimes very easy :)


The inn is comprised of four consecutive buildings all in faced in classic weathered coastal shingles on the water side (the picture shows the entire width of the buildings). Numerous decks allow guests to just sit and watch the schooners and lobster boats coming and going.


My husband came with me (no twisting his arm on this visit during gorgeous weather!) so we had an early dinner out on the deck of Fisherman's Friend Restaurant and had some really great fried seafood (everything in moderation - it's how my bio reads)

I was really impressed that on a Tuesday night, the inn had no vacancy, in tiny Stonington, Maine! I've always understood what it is about this village that draws people in and I'm glad to see others are discovering it, too.

Inn on the Harbor produces a very strong business income and is offered at $1,950,000.
