WATERFRONT COTTAGE WITH SUNSETS, HOT TUB AND PRIVATE DOCK

South Bristol Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This cottage is feet from the water in serene Long Cove on the Damariscotta River. The deck and hot tub face the widest part of the river (which is actually a mile-wide bay off of the ocean) and the famous Maine sunset. The private deep-water dock and sun-warmed rocks provide for great swimming. Though otherwise nestled into the trees, the house has a large lawn off to one side for croquet or tossing a ball.

The cottage itself is beautifully restored - all wood inside and out - with an open floor plan and skylights in the kitchen. Pretty much all of the comforts of home are provided, including linens and a fully outfitted kitchen. Wood is stacked for the fireplace all year long.

There are a number of hiking trails nearby. The kayak rental place in town will deliver and/or pick up kayaks. You can rent in town and kayak back to the cottage; put in at Biscay Pond and kayak thru the wetlands to Bristol; or paddle to some nearby islands with public access for hiking, including one with a pair of nesting bald eagles. Or bring your bikes and peddle to Pemaquid – or to the teeny Island Grocery for a breakfast of heavenly pastries. There’s a big pot in the kitchen if you want to purchase lobsters at the co-op – or they’ll cook ‘em right up for you there. Life is good at 'Marguerite’s Cottage'…

About The Owner

Our family has lived in this area forever. Our granddad attended the one-room schoolhouse down the road and his father logged a good chunk of the peninsula (selling the land for a buck an acre (!) when he was done swinging his axe). So, this little slice of paradise has always been near and dear in our hearts.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1980

Why The Owner chose South Bristol

It's down the road from our grandparent's home and the owner was a longtime friend. We loved the cottage and it's on about the loveliest spot on the river.

What makes this cottage unique

Total serenity. Feeling very close to the great outdoors while having all the amenities to make for a cozy and comfortable stay.

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully relaxing time at this peaceful cottage on the river. We lounged on the deck and watched sunsets, lobster boats, kayaked amidst seals and seabirds, explored nearby New Harbor and took a puffin cruise (highly recommend), enjoyed nightly fires, and hot tub soaks - all while juggling twins, a 1 year old, and 2 couples. Loved the mix of Maine rustic charm with comfortable beds, kitchen, and amenities. Owners were very friendly and helpful. I'd highly recommend staying here.

When Can I Go Back?!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a very relaxing week at this cottage and just have to say it was perfect! The cottage had everything we needed. Very quiet, clean, cozy, and comfortable. We used the fireplace several evenings and watched the sunset over the water with the sounds of lounging seals. When I think of a Maine coastal cottage, this place will always come to mind.

There was plenty of dining, shopping, and sight seeing locations within a short drive to make the location perfect.

And finally, the hosts. Becky and her daughters make the perfect hosts. Always making sure you have everything you need. Becky was so friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed speaking with her about the area.

We are definitely going back!!!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We spent ten days in this cottage and I wish it could have been much longer. The description and pictures led me to believe it would be a nice place to stay. I was not disappointed.

Becky was wonderful. When we got to the cottage it had everything we needed. All we had to do was stock the refrigerator. Fresh flowers were a wonderful touch and shows the hospitality we felt as soon as we arrived. The cottage was so bright and cheerful and very neat and clean.

My daughter and son-in-law were with me and since they hadn't been to Maine they were eager to explore. I spent a lot of time at the cottage simply watching the birds, seals, and the boats and enjoying the salt air while they were out.

The location is fantastic. If you like seafood you won't be disappointed because there are several places you can go to eat, take out, or buy and cook at the cottage. You won't have to drive far, all within about seven or eight miles. We loved the botanical garden in Boothbay, a must see.

I will be back and highly recommend the cottage. I told Becky that I will definitely stay at the cottage anytime I'm in Maine. No reservations in recommending it to anyone.

The most realxing vacation ever...and the best hostess...Becky!

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot express how delighted we were with the cottage, with our amazing host Becky, who went so above and beyond to ensure that we were well cared for, yet left to enjoy her beautiful property like it was our own. The amazing quality of the clean air, the seals jostling in the night (we loved that!) and resting in plain sight just off our sunset water view deck, the lobster boats coming and going amongst the thousands of buoys that looked like stars dotting the night in our inlet sea that we were so lucky to be on the edge of...the fireplace...the comfort of the cottage, the soft linens, the hominess of it all left us speechless. But best yet, the wonderful people that live and work in this most special part of Maine were a delight. When my Boyfriend, who had never been to Maine, arrived, he had an immediate sense of relaxation...he went "Awww"...and was in awe as we saw the trees do their magic and heard the tinkle of the stream next to our cottage. We shall be back! Oh, and we ate lobster, boy, did we eat lobster:)

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5
I shared the property with four friends for a vacation at the end of July. In addition to amazing hospitality from the owner and her family; spectacular views; and charming accommodations; we were treated to a family of seals nesting on the rocks just off shore from the house! I can't stress enough the serenity of the setting!

The cabin was also well appointed. We had a coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, basic kitchen supplies (even a well stocked spice rack!), a washer and dryer, a hot tub, internet access (which we used to post photos to facebook!), and even satellite television (which I think got turned on once to catch the news). We were so impressed, we hope to stay there again during our next visit to Maine.

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5
We had not been to this area in Maine before and were very pleased with the experience overall. Damariscotta nearby is a quaint little town, which we found out is actually historic! It is not crowded with tourists but provides all the amenities you might need while away from home. My glasses were broken by my baby boy and I was able to get them fixed while I waited. Plenty of antique shopping opportunity nearby.
The cottage itself is a beautiful treat, the view is extremely relaxing. We had our three kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. We made a game of getting into the kayaks close to sunset and chasing the seals off the rocks not far in front of the cottage. They were ok with it we think! In any case we were able to get some pretty cool closeups in the end. The fisherman's co-op close by had great lobster as did the one in round pond a few miles further away. Everyone has praised Becky and so should we, she was very generous and helpful with all the local knowledge. Wish we could have stayed longer; perhaps we can make it back there soon.
