The Thimble Islands are a small cluster of granite–based islands located in the Long Island Sound, off the coast of Stony Creek, Connecticut. Have you ever been on a boat ride to visit these unique homes? Most homes on the Thimbles were built 150 years ago and many exist today without electricity. Each island houses 1-20 homes and is accessible only by boat. One home owner recently installed solar panels to power their grand Victorian.
