Living space at Plummer Point is divided between a comfortable year-round deck house and two rustic summer cabins “a stone’s throw away.” The main house offers views from inside and out: 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a gracious living room with wood-burning fireplace insert, dining room that seats 12, a fully-stocked kitchen, office space, a cathedral-ceilinged screen porch, and a wrap-around deck. The house has central heating. One cabin holds 2 more bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. The other cabin offers a comfortable lounging area focused on a granite fireplace, as well as a small kitchen and another screened porch. Books fill both the main house and cabins! Wireless broadband internet reaches from the house to the cabins – and of course to the decks and porches too!
Without leaving Plummer Point, you can spend your days peacefully hiking, birding, fishing, reading, watching lobster boats, playing games, and enjoying the stately pines that surround you. Right out the door, you can hike the trails, sail, canoe or kayak in the tidal Damariscotta River, seek the geo-cache, play croquet, swim out to the seals, discover the property’s historic quarries, or create your own active adventure! Three generations of kids and parents have loved playing and inventing games in the clearing, on the shore, along the trails, and among the trees – you will too!
From the peaceful seclusion of Plummer Point, you can easily venture to Maine’s vibrant summer scene. A short drive from Plummer Point brings you to restaurants, lobster pounds, Pemaquid lighthouse, historic Fort William Henry, golfing, antique dealers, shopping, and many other coastal preserves for hiking and boating. Not far away, you’ll also find museums, summer theater, concerts, ocean cruises, and the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.

About Marjorie Ulin
Plummer Point is owned by 3 generations who grew up vacationing here -- loving the adventures for little kids, freedom for older kids, and serenity for adults. Now we're spread around the world with new jobs and growing families, so we hope others can enjoy Plummer Point when we're not able to be there.
Marjorie Ulin purchased this house in 1946
Why Marjorie Ulin chose South Bristol
In 1946 our parents/grandparents/great-grandparents searched for a piece of undisturbed paradise along the Maine coast for vacationing with their children and pets. They camped for years, built the cabins, then later retired to Plummer Point for 30 years. During this time, they donated all but the tip of the peninsula to conservation.
We love Plummer Point for all the natural space... the limitless opportunities for creative fun... and many relaxation spots for our kids and our families.
What makes this house unique
Seals! Our closest 'neighbors' are a colony of 35-50 seals on the rocks offshore! With respect, we paddle or swim out to them and wait for their curious heads to pop out of the water around us!
