South Bristol Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The romantic Captain's Quarters are located in a spacious open-plan cottage on the McFarland Estate at the center of Christmas Cove. The estate contains several buildings and over an acre of lawns and gardens with commanding views of the Cove, Johns Bay and the Atlantic. Part of a compound which was once the center of boat-building in the area, the Captain's Quarters were totally renovated in 2007 to resemble the interior of a ship. This magic was achieved by adding gleaming hardwood walls and floors, a high beamed ceiling, charming red and green running lights in addition to ample overhead lighting, and even an authentic ship's mast! At night you may hear the sound of waves hitting the shore of Johns Bay and imagine you are being rocked on a gentle sea in your own safe and cozy ship. Cathedral ceilings add to the feeling of spaciousness. The new deck off the living room offers private views of Christmas Cove, perfect for sunset-watching! And just across the front lawn is the massive shipbuilding barn, where you may store your bicycles, kayaks or water equipment.

A new bathroom and kitchen were added in 2007 when the building was renovated. The Captain's Quarters boasts a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, kingmattress, linens, kitchen utensils and china. A daybed can be added in the living room as an additional sleeping space if desired. Air conditioning is available, though frequently not needed because of regular offshore breezes. Have the best of both worlds--the ambience of living like a ship's captain of old while enjoying high speed internet access and cable TV.

Rutherford Island is the quintessential Maine coastal getaway--sea views all around, glittering night skies, perfect summer temperatures. When you return home from antiquing, touring, sailing or other salty sports, enjoy a glass of wine on the deck while you watch the sun set over Christmas Cove, listen to the waves crashing on Johns Bay and stare at the amazing night stars and Milky Way. Do bring your telescope!

For larger parties, we also have another cottage for rent on the same compound. See VRBO® #288046.

Bobbee Cardillo purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Bobbee Cardillo chose South Bristol

We visited friends in Christmas Cove for many years and were always eager to return, as we loved the sea, the sailboats and the peacefulness of the area. In 2007 we had an opportunity to purchase the perfect property in the perfect location, directly across from the Cove. Now we look forward to driving through the quaint town of South Bristol to our perfect island getaway.

What makes this apartment unique

Crossing the swing bridge onto Rutherford Island and driving a mile, past the church and through the woods to the property, you will immediately relax. Here you can listen to the sea and experience nature with a Rachel Carson sense of wonder.

Beauty and comfort!

  • 5 of 5
Christmas Cove is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! And the Captain's Quarters are fitting to the place. Plenty of space for a couple, well equipped and maintained. The owners have taken great care to add nautical details that really make the apartment unique. Lots of windows, and warm wood everywhere make me a happy camper! The owners and caretaker were very responsive to our calls when had a problem with the internet connection.
We had a picnic on the back lawn one day, with great views of the water on both sides. We walked every day along the beautiful shoreline, and bought lobster from the local fishermen's co-op. I would go back here in a heartbeat! Thank you Bobbee and Leo, for this wonderful retreat!

Ideal Maine Hide away!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at the Captains Quarters. We've been visiting Maine for years and this is by far the best mix of charm and modern functionality we've ever found. It had everything we needed to relax and enjoy ourselves without feeling like we had to bring a uhaul of stuff to be comfortable. They really have thought of all the necessary comforts.

Artist Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Leo and bobbie, My girlfriend and I had a marvelous time last august in the Captain's Quarters. As an artist it was wonderful to get up each morning and go out and paint landscapes in beautiful Christmas Cove! The beauty of the area is beyond belief. The Captain's quarters was perfect for us and I really enjoyed sitting on the deck at the end of the day and having a glass of wine. Bobbie, thanks so much for making your studio available for me to paint in when it was raining. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed. Wish we could have stayed for another week! Your property is very nice and the views are wonderful! We will be back! Thanks for everything!
