Overview

South Bristol House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

MY Maine, 'Amish Built Post and Beam House' is on the internationally famous (for yachting) beautiful CHRISTMAS COVE, 2 minutes from the town of South Bristol and located in the heart of New England's most picturesque region. Walk just 300 yards to the equally famous Coveside Restaurant and Marina, where you can dine on fresh lobsters, clams and other local seafood which is caught daily: and feast on the dramatic and spectacular out-island views of the Atlantic Ocean. Also famous for music at least 3 times a week including Sunday afternoon on the deck. The house is surrounded by a pine forest, with peek-a-boo water views to the Cove-just 50 feet away.

There now has been 5 wedding receptions and several family and friends reuinons hosted at the home.

Walk down to the docks and fish for mackerel, or walk/jog through the coniferous rain forest on pine needle-covered trails.

This Non-smoking Maine House was built by the Amish just 9 years ago, and features all tongue and groove on walls and ceilings. Custom carpentry, with vaulted ceilings, bamboo floors and huge stone fireplaces. It has five bedrooms-1 master king suite/fireplace upstairs and 1 master king suite on main floor. There are 4 1/2 bathrooms. All the bedrooms have large windows, ceiling fans/3 have large walkout decks.

Contributing to the extraordinary attributes that include: wonderfully exposed tongue and groove wood interiors; interior accents include many fine antiques, and beautiful seascape paintings. The gourmet kitchen is huge, with fabulous granite counters, which flow in to the dining and living room, with ease

With the scent of pine and salt in the air, you can relish in the 'Maine Ambience', and relax like you never have before.

About Claudia Moore

I have been vacationing here 30 years and I live in Denver, CO from Nov. to June and Christmas Cove the rest of the time. I am in the construction business and I had an Amish family in the building business from PA work from my plans to build the shell of this spec home. I had met them several years earlier when they came to Maine to build a 6 car barn/ studio/ loft on the island. Their work is so precise from hand hueing the 12x12 beams to using no nails, only pegs.

My tipical day is 9 holes of golf in early morning and then home to a bit of business and gardening before I head off to lunch with friends and relatives. Back in time for a tennis match and then cook a gourmet dinner for friends.

Claudia Moore purchased this house in 2006

Why Claudia Moore chose South Bristol

I built this Amish home as a spec home and can't seem to part with it.

What makes this house unique

The island-CONNECTED BY SWING BRIDGE is great for walking, biking, fishing, golf, tennis and especially enjoying all the fresh sea food like clams, oysters, mussles, lobsters, scallops and swordfish. Our home is know on the island for being able to host the largest parties. Every year we have a 'make your own pizza' party for 40 friends and relatives. Then there are the normal lobster and clam dinners for family reunions.

Beautiful house set in quiet woods was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this gorgeous home on a quiet road near South Bristol. Huge rooms, pleanty of space for every one and immaculate. It was also perfect for my aunt who uses a wheelchair with a large first floor master and smooth concrete floors. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would rent again.

Gorgeous home, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is STUNNING. My immediate and extended family met here for a week long vacation, and the home and its amenities were even better than the pictures. There are three floors of space for everyone to enjoy, and with so many of us there, it gave just the right amount of room. Everything was clean and lovely, too. Just spectacular!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience staying in this beautiful home. We had 9 adults and 1 toddler and there was ample space for all. We were able to have a large group stay here very comfortably and never felt cramped. Everyone enjoyed having their own personal bathroom which was a huge plus for privacy. We never had any problems with the water as some reviews mention. We enjoyed the spacious deck and took advantage of the large grill for many family dinners which were a pleasure to prepare in the gourmet kitchen. There were many games/puzzles and kids toys making this a good home for families and children. Although the house is a bit remote we enjoyed the peaceful quiet and privacy. There are plenty of places to explore in the area but they do require a bit of a drive, although the scenery is very pleasant. Our family had a wonderful time at Pemaquid Beach which is a short drive away. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. Would highly recommend this house!

Gorgeous Place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was gorgeous! We had a rehearsal dinner here for about 40 people and we were able to entertain like champs! The view is amazing, and the location is remote, so come prepared if you don't want to make 1 hour long drives to get some groceries. Rooms were super spacious, and we loved the fireplaces, worked great for the cold spring nights.

Exceptional home in a wonderful area of Maine

  • 5 of 5

My family was in the area for my niece's wedding in July of 2013. There were ten of us staying in this lovely home. We had plenty of space and felt comfortable and pampered while staying here. There were plenty of bathrooms so privacy was great. We loved cooking together in the large, modern kitchen and there was plenty of seating to enjoy indoor or outdoor lobster dinners. We did several puzzles and enjoyed many of the extra home amenities such as the wine fridge, espresso machine, rowboat, gas grill, etc. Some reviews mentioned issues with water but we had no problems. The home is close to the marina restaurant and a 30-minute drive to Damariscotta and Newcastle. We spent several afternoons swimming at the Mills in Damariscotta and we also checked out Pemaquid Beach and lighthouse. This home rental was a great find to enjoy our time in Maine and Claudia was very easy to work with.

great week-end

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We had a wonderful time! The house was ideal with each family having the privacy of their own suite. The children were so comfortable and that made the parents comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for our large meal time buffets.

The warm gatherings around the table and fun times in the large living area will be etched on the memories of all who shared the special spot.

It has created a special moment for all of us!
