COZY COTTAGE WITH FRESHWATER FRONTAGE & SALTWATER VIEW

South Bristol Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

Clarks Cove is the setting for this comfortable waterfront cottage on 3 acres of land - the perfect spot for a quiet, relaxing vacation away from everyday hustle and bustle. Located in a scenic, rural area it borders a 35 acre freshwater pond and has a view of the saltwater across the road. It's within walking distance of a nature preserve with marked trails and saltwater access and an ideal location for quiet walks.

Enjoy nature, take the canoe out on the pond to explore, go fishing, or swimming right in front of the door. The porch makes a great place to relax and enjoy the large grassy backyard.

The home is an original Sears Roebuck kit house from the 20s. It has been thoroughly updated and renovated. The layout however, has been left unaltered, giving the cottage and “old fashioned” cozy feeling. The rooms are all situated on the ground floor level, making it easily accessible for young and old. The original wood floors have been refinished and provide warmth and character to the home.

Wonderful Maine holiday

  • 5 of 5
My husband retired in September and we had long wanted to visit New England in the Fall. Our daughter organised a two week holiday for us, the second week being in this cosy, well equipped and beautifully situated cottage, We arrived after a long drive in the rain and dark and it felt like heaven - the door unlocked, the lights on and a welcoming message and everything ready for our arrival. Christa came to visit and welcome us the next day. We had a wonderful week exploring the peninsula, walking in the woods and by the sea, picking apples, and, of course, eating lobster! Our daughter with her husband and baby joined us for the last two nights and the cottage comfortably accommodated all of us. We would happily stay there again if we get the chance. Gini and Martyn Crompton.

Gemütliches Häuschen im friedlichen Maine

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in diesem perfekt ausgestatteten kleinen Häuschen. Die Besitzerin hatte viele gute Ausflugstips in die nähere Umgebung parat. Alles war sauber und sehr gut in Schuss.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für die freundlichen Worte. Im Hinblick auf Gäste, die von weit her anreisen, versuche ich, das Cottage mit all dem auszustatten, was ich selbst gerne in einem Ferienhaus vorfinden möchte, wenn ich mit dem Flugzeug anreisen muss. Schön, dass Sie meine Ausflugstips hilfreich fanden. Ich wohne schon lange hier und kenne mich in der Gegend hier gut aus. Es freut mich sehr, dass Sie sich hier so wohlgefühlt haben. Kommen Sie wieder!

Thank you for your kind words. With guests in mind who travel a long distance, I try to equip the cottage with everything I would like to find in a vacation home, specially if I had to take a plane to get here. Great that you found my excursion tips helpful. I have lived here for a long time and am filled with information about the area. I am so glad that you had a great stay and found the cottage neat and tidy. Come again!

Rest and Be Thankful

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed at this lovely Maine cottage for over 10 years now and find it extremely cozy and comfortable. It is wonderfully maintained, well-stocked , and situated near lovely attractions, good restaurants, and many cultural events. The owners and their family are extremely pleasant and always available to share their knowledge of the area and to provide help whenever needed. We can't guarantee the weather but we can guarantee a restful, pleasant holiday. Sharon and Duke Hemmer NJ

wonderful place for family stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage! There are many low-key, family-friendly things to do in the area. We enjoyed the aquarium in Boothbay, the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Preserve, as well as the easy drives to Freeport, Wiscassett, and downtown Damariscotta. The cottage itself was cozy, and was perfect for our family of 5.(3 girls under the age of 7, as well as my husband and I) I was pleasantly surprised that even things like laundry detergent were provided, as well as paper goods,etc. The yard was large, and great for games outside. My husband enjoyed taking our children on canoe rides, and I liked that the pond was not too close to the house. When the kids were playing, I felt that they were perfectly safe. The owners are located close enough should any problems arise, and were very helpful with some needs that we had. We have recommended this wonderful place to family, who had an enjoyable time in the area, as we did. Thank you for providing a lovely, economical place for a young family to experience their first vacation in Maine together!

Relaxation in a doll house

  • 5 of 5
This cozy, well furnished little cottage is everything is is advertised to be. We found the cottage clean, well equipped with the essentials plus much more. Chairs have lights beside them for reading or doing handwork.........a biggie for those who enjoy those pastimes . For those of us who live in an area where there is no cable service, the Dish TV was a delightful perk. The cottage is located on a road that provides easy walking with little traffic. The cottage's location provides a very central starting point for day trips to Boothbay, Portland, Freeport, Rockland, Camden, Bar Harbor or the inland areas. It is an easy hop to the grocery, eating and the water. We are three time renters and have our reservations for next year already. We would heartily recommend this cottage to our friends and have.

The cottage is located on the Pemaquid peninsula about 7 miles south of Route 1 in the beautiful Midcoast Maine region. Situated in a rural area it is within walking distance of a nature preserve with marked trails and access to the shore.

It's an easy drive to a nice sandy beach (Pemaquid Beach), golf course, children's attractions, fishing villages, lobster wharfs and many restaurants. The closest shopping stop is Damariscotta which provides all the essentials, has cultural offerings, and much more. This quaint village boasts many speciality shops from internet cafe, health food store, chic boutique, and fish store to farm stands, antique shops, book store, and movie theater. Also, there is a YMCA with gym (visitor passes available), children’s playground, and tennis courts.

Local attractions include the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse, featured on the Maine Quarter coin and Fort William, a historic landmark originally dating back to 1692. Several museums (Farnsworth, Maine Maritime, Bowdoin College to name a few) are also within an hour's drive.

Book a day cruise to go sailing or fishing, to watch whales, observe puffins or visit Monhegan Island, a year-round fishing community and famous artists’ colony. Stop by one of the numerous local nature preserves, parks, and sanctuaries (such as Dodge Point and La Verna Preserve) to take a stroll and/or explore the shoreline.

Attend an auction, check out the arts and crafts galleries, play a round of golf, visit one of the many close-by coastal towns such a Rockland, Camden, or Boothbay Harbor, or rent a kayak and explore the tidal Damariscotta River. Kids might enjoy a visit to the Maine State Aquarium with touch tanks and tide pools (in Boothbay Harbor), go on a lobster-catching tour, or sample some of our delicious local ice creams.

A 45-minute drive takes you to Freeport, home of LL Bean and numerous outlet stores.
