LARGE HISTORIC OCEANFRONT HOUSE AND APARTMENT WITH DOCK

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.

We have rented the Clifford house for 3 separate weeks over the last decade or so and each visit we had a wonderful time. On our first visit we had our wedding there, with a big canopy out on the huge lawn, live music, and a lobster bake! Our other two visits have been purely for vacation.

The house has so many bedrooms and bathrooms that we can always bring along friends and family, and it's big enough that everyone can relax with plenty of room to do their own thing. There are 2 wings to the house each with its own kitchen and living area, and a huge screened-in porch with a sitting area and also a big picnic table overlooking the beautiful yard and cove view. The porch is great for hanging out, enjoying the breeze, having a big dinner with family, friends, etc.

The house is in a very quiet location and very private. The owners are very friendly and accommodating but also leave you be. They usually stroll by on your first or second day there to introduce themselves and make sure everything is OK, but other than that they will give you as much privacy as you want. It never feels like you're being watched (which is different than some other rentals I have experienced.)

Down the path through the giant field of wild flowers there's a dock with kayaks and bracing Maine water for anyone brave enough to swim. In late July and August phosphorescent algae cause the night water to sparkle and glow when you run your hand (or a paddle) through it. The air is cool and the sunlight is amazingly clear even at the height of summer, when the rest of the country is baking in heat and humidity. It's a wonderful place.
