Stonington Connecticut

Stonington Connecticut is an exquisite coastal community located on Little Narragansett Bay and Fishers Island Sound between the Mystic and Pawcatuck Rivers. Dotted with islands and winding, twisting peninsulas and coves, it is the southeastern-most town in the state of Connecticut.

Amidst tree-lined sidewalks and narrow one-way streets, the captivating village of Stonington Borough entices visitors with its stately homes and quaint shops. Follow Water Street through town to the tip of the peninsula where Stonington Harbor and the surrounding coastlines of New York and Rhode Island come into view. The Old Lighthouse Museum is just a few steps away and offers commanding panoramic vistas from the top of the lighthouse tower.

Historic homes abound in Stonington, one of the most popular being the Captain Nathaniel B. Palmer House, home of the famous Antarctic explorer. Now a museum, the public is invited to view the displays and historical artifacts collected by this illustrious maritime adventurer.

Do you fancy yourself as a maritime adventurer? Take a cruise along the Sound and explore Stonington's islands — all twelve of them.  Some inhabited, some not, some privately owned.....perhaps there's a treasure chest or two strewn about waiting for your discovery!

Stonington's salt-tinged air and soil create the perfect growing conditions for a number of grape varieties. Take a tour and sample some of the local wines available from Saltwater Farm Vineyard and Stonington Vineyards. Take a drive through rural farmland and scenic rolling landscapes, and be sure to visit the picturesque countryside of North Stonington. If you just happen to have your golf bag and clubs in the trunk of the car, you're in luck! Visit the links at Stonington Country Club, Pequot Golf Club, and Elmridge Golf Course—all within a few miles of each other.

The Inn At Stonington offers upscale bed and breakfast accommodations overlooking Stonington Harbor. Each luxuriously furnished room is equipped with a fireplace—a cozy feature for keeping the chill of autumn and winter at bay. The Orchard Street Inn is another in-town B&B option with its comfortable antique decor and well-manicured patios and gardens. Two miles north of the Borough you'll find Another Second Penny Inn, a 1700's B&B surrounded by scenic woods and rock walls. Other accommodations include hotels and motels to fit every budget as you plan your next trip to beautiful Stonington Connecticut.
