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 one 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.

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.
