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.

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.
