Overview

South Bristol House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 9

Clifford's Cove, 1/4 mile from open ocean, is the beautiful setting for Clifford House, a five bedroom Victorian period farmhouse on 3 1/2 acres on Rutherford Island, South Bristol, Maine. The Island is connected to the mainland by a small bridge in the picturesque fishing village of South Bristol.

The main house has 3 bedrooms and one bath. The in-law apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. A short hallway connects them. They each have living rooms and kitchens. The main house has a screened porch.

One bedroom and bath are on the ground floor with no stairs.

The main house and in-law are always rented together.

The house is surrounded by gardens, yards, fields of wild flowers, and woods. It is on a small country road that sees more walkers, joggers, and bicyclers than cars. A long stand of tall trees along the road provide privacy for the house and grounds. From the grounds you see no other buildings except for the caretaker’s cottage.

Clifford’s Cove is home to a small friendly summer colony of which Clifford House is by far the largest. The property extends from a scenic country road to the water. The house is close enough to the water so that you can watch the fishing boats but far enough that they don’t wake you when they start working at 5:00 a.m.

Clifford House is perfectly situated for a family vacation. It is private but not isolated.

High-speed internet is included.

We don’t charge a cleaning fee.

See our website at www.CliffordHouseMaine.com for more information, more photos, and guests' comments.

Boating: Boat and kayak rentals are available nearby. Mooring rental in our cove can be arranged.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another magical week on Rutherford Island. Beautiful scenery, long walks, kayaking, relaxing on the porch, fishing, watching the sunset from the dock and a full moon rise from the yard, a boat ride to see the puffins, delicious meals, good company. A perfect vacation.

Our favorite summer location!

  • 5 of 5
We feel that the Clifford House is our Maine home! We have been going there for the last 5 years and look forward to it each year. Each year we find another thing to love, kickball on the large lawn, a talent show in the living room, kayak races to the Gut, fishing off the dock and of course enjoying lobster and family while watching a beautiful sunset. We have kids of all ages from 6 to 76 and everyone loves their time. If you want to spend an amazing week with your family in a beautiful corner of the world, then I highly recommend the Clifford House. We are counting the days until we get back!

Clifford House

  • 5 of 5
We have spent a week at the Clifford House each summer for the last four years. The house is clean, charming and so Maine. The beautiful yard is expansive and perfect for young and old to play games or enjoy the magnificent view. The dock is great for fishing and water sports. The children love to walk to the local stores and restaurant. Pemaquid, a beautiful beach and swimming location is only 15 minutes away. We have no qualms about highly recommending the experience of a stay at the Clifford House.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, who live in Maine, have spent our summer vacation week (or sometimes 2 weeks) at the Clifford House in South Bristol, Maine, every summer for the past TEN years. This fact alone will tell you how much we like it there. The house, large lawn, dock and small beach area are perfect for us and our three kids. We sometimes have other family or friends visit and stay overnight and there is plenty for room for that. The owners are wonderful people who are always helpful and informative. The area is beautiful and the whole experience is extremely relaxing, which is why we choose to spend our time there year after year.

Outstanding home for perfect Maine vacation.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Clifford House several times over the past 10 years and have enjoyed every visit to the utmost. It is a magical place ....plenty of room for two families or a multigenerational gathering. Terrific location for exploring the Pemaquid area or just relaxing on the property with the beautiful water view as a backdrop. Great kayaking and fishing right from the dock.The Turners are accommodating and gracious hosts. A real find.

excellent choice for large family gathering

  • 5 of 5
Centrally located in what we would consider "Old Maine", this was the perfect fit for our family of 7 adults. Our family is close but we also enjoy our space and that was satisfied with two kitchens, two living areas and bedrooms spaced about the house, not to mention the large property for outside fun.

We found the house to be fully equipped with everything we needed. We like to dine out but we also like to cook and never wanted for anything.

My husband enjoyed casting off the pier where he caught mullet at high tide receding and tossed them back to live another day. We gathered on the pier at sunset to enjoy the brilliant colors and searched the beach for treasures at low tide.

The Boothbay area botanical garden was a great trip where everything was in full bloom, we took pictures and ideas home with us. Also spent a day at Pemaquid Point lighthouse, rock outcroppings and gorgeous beach.

It was a short drive to New Harbor where we took the ferry to Monhegan Island, no cars are allowed and history dates back to John Smith. We hiked the paths and climbed rocks and when we were hot and exhausted we came around a bend and found a brewery, of all things. They served cold beer in real glasses, none of that throwaway plastic! It was great!. Some of the group continued on to the Puffin Cruise and were not disappointed.

We found a great fish market and other tourist stuff in Demariscotta but for the most part we enjoyed the small businesses within walking distance of our house.

We cooked lobsters just one night and then decided we preferred the Fisherman's Co-op to steam them for us while we sat on their dock (BYOB) and enjoyed watching the fishermen prep their boats or unload the catch of the day.

All in all it was an excellent stay at the Clifford House, the perfect owners friendly and helpful but never intrusive. It's a bit of a trip from our home in Wisconsin but hope to return again in the future. Thank you John and family!

Wonderful place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay at Clifford House. The property was just as described. The owners are nearby and very helpful but never intrude. The grounds are extensive and beautiful. Kids absolutely love it because there's so much to do without leaving the property. We would definitely recommend it to friends.
