PRIVATE WATERFRONT RENTAL W/TRAILS, KAYAKS, DOCK, HOUSE+CABINS

South Bristol House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Peace and privacy await you at this Mid-Coast Maine retreat. Surrounded by over 75 acres of conservation land with coastal trails, you’ll enjoy acres of private woods and waterfront with dock, deep-water mooring, tide pools, and a mini beach. Seals sun themselves on rocks and cavort in the water just yards from shore. Eagles and osprey soar overhead while coastal birds dive for fish, and you relax with sunset views from land or water.

(For more information and many more pictures, please visit our Plummer Point Website 'hidden' below the RATES and DATES AVAILABLE sections. Below 'Email Owner,' you'll find: 'Links to More Information: CLICK HERE!' for our website.)

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.

Please note: This property is non-smoking only.

Dogs may be permitted with fee and deposit: please contact owner.

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

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.

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!

Wonderful, Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is exactly what my husband & I were looking for. Very secluded, yet accessible to amenities such as grocery and restaurants within a 10-15 minute drive. Being on the point surrounded by water & some 80 acres of woods was heaven for us. It was fascinating watching the shoreline change with the tides. Great birds around and we even got to watch the seals hunting for food out by the rocks. We have stayed in a lot of places in Maine, this ranks as our top spot. I think the house is even better than the photos. The owners were very helpful in answering any questions & easy to contact. It was a great spot to let our dog run around & play in the water. We only used the main house, which was immaculate and well stocked. Even though the kitchen is small, we were able to do everything we needed in terms of cooking. The appliances are newer and in good working order. The other two cabins on the property are classic Maine camps & could provide some nice memories for children/teenagers. Thanks for sharing your home with us! Hope to be back soon!

Lovely Maine retreat

  • 5 of 5
Well, I hesitated adding a review because we'd like to keep this rental as a private pleasure, but in fairness I have to share that this property was everything the listing described. It was a perfect getaway for our family. We absolutely loved Plummer Point and felt very at home in the house and around the area. We cooked up great meals with local seafood, walked daily with our dog on the trails, paddled about the estuary in kayaks and the canoe (my favorite), played scrabble, and read. Very relaxing! Even bad weather was nice, as the rain one day gave us an excuse to lay a fire and feel cozy inside. We explored the area a little, and found it lovely, but any time away felt like a loss of time to be on the property. One week was probably too short, so we'll just have to come back! Some friends came to join us midweek and stayed in the cabin, which they also loved for its rustic Maine-ness. The whole experience was perfect. This is a true home, with music and books and more kitchen stuff than you can possibly use. You can sense in it the family history and a connection to nature that defines the space.

Owner's Response: We're so glad Plummer Point offered your family what you needed! It's not for everyone, but for those, like you, who thrive on the incredible natural beauty of the land, it can be magical. Wild night life restricted to wildlife! "Shopping" focused on exploring what the river offers, not the malls! We agree-- it's hard to venture beyond Plummer Point when there's so much right there.

Nature Lover's Heaven!

I just wanted to reiterate what an amazing vacation we had. It was everything I was picturing and more! I have been to Maine 3 times before, twice to the Mt Dessert area and then to the Penobscot Bay area. I really had my heart set on being close to Acadia so when we decided on Plummer Point, I was a bit hesitant even though the property was my first pick by far of all the houses we were looking at. But knowing we were a bit far from Acadia to zip there for a day trip, I was worried my kids were not going to be able to experience what I remember most about my Maine trips; the pure, natural beauty. Boy was I wrong! It was all I could have hoped for and so much more. In hindsight, I wish we never would have left the property and spent more time just enjoying what was there! Watching my boys kayak, swim, explore the tidal pools, find all kinds of fantastic creatures, hermit crabs, snails, crabs of all shapes and sizes, mussels, and my favorite a horseshoe crab in Longs Cove, it was amazing. The home was in my opinion perfect! As my hubby has to work unfortunately on vacation sometimes, the lack of high speed wifi was tricky for him but just fine with me. Vacation is about allowing yourself to be disconnected and I think many have forgotten that! The screened porch was my favorite spot. It was truly a home that I felt at home in and not overly concerned about the kids and if they could act like kids or not! It was very comfortable, spacious, fantastically stocked with everything we could have needed and more. It felt like home. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us and so many others. It is a very magical spot and we will be returning in the next couple of years as well as passing on to friends and family. I could go on and on but I will end here and just say I feel very blessed to have been able to spend a week at Plummer Point and can't wait for our next visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks for capturing Plummer Point so well! It does offer paradise to those who want a nature immersion. I'm glad the internet worked for you, if not speedy enough for your husband. (We have a DSL connection, but those of us used to high speed Cable want more. No cable into the woods!) The seals will miss you!

As they say, "Maine, the way life should be!" This place was great! Everything you would need to be comfortable. The owners where so easy and nice to work with. An amazing property that offered so much adventure yet solitude! We brought our 22ft. boat that fit at the dock and cruised all throughout the area, Coveside restaurant was a big hit with our two families. We will go back again!!

An amazing place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Plummer Point this summer with our two children, ages 5 and 9. Everything about our stay was perfect. The house was clean, well-stocked, and a very comfortable place to relax. We immediately felt at home and at ease in the house. The property was beautiful, with great hiking trails all around, and quick and easy access to the water. It is one of the most peaceful places we've ever visited.

We most enjoyed canoeing and kayaking right off the dock at Plummer Point, where we could visit the seals, explore nearby islands, gather our own mussels for dinner, and enjoy the sunset on the bay.We also appreciated the information at the house about all of the fun things to do in the area that are within just an hour's drive of the house. Our favorite activities: Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, exploring tidal pools around the point, Fort William Henry, lobsters at the South Bristol Fisherman's Co-op, trip out to Monhegan Island, ice cream at Round Top Dairy. We had to postpone other day trips for our next visit, simply because we ran out of time!

We HIGHLY recommend this rental to just about anyone. Our kids loved being able to explore the property on their own, and we felt very comfortable letting them do so because of the secluded nature of the spot. It was a wonderful place to come "home" to after a day exploring the area. We all still talk about our Maine trip as the best vacation we've ever taken.

Amazing Week in Maine!!!

  • 5 of 5
Spent the week of July 4th at Plummer Point. My wife and 4 children had never been to Maine and wanted to find the perfect place to experience the true feeling being in the heart of Maine. Let me tell you, THIS WAS IT!! From the moment we turned on to the long private drive, we knew this was going to be a vacation of a lifetime. It was secluded, with the most beautiful trails and the most wonderful view of the water down at the dock. We caught at least 40 mackeral while there, sometimes we would have 3-4 on at a time. Kayaking on the calm waters in the evening were also a highlight as we listened to the seals settling in on the rocks. They seemed to enjoy watching us closer and closer each day as they popped their curious heads out of the water around us. The house was way more than we expected for the 6 of us and the amenities were too many to even name! The wrap around deck, the sun room/dining room, the large master bathroom, the numerous windows allowing the natural light and view of the river, and 2 full baths made our stay incredibly comfortable, feeling like we truly lived there. The local lobster co-op at South Bristol had the BEST fresh lobsters at such a great price. We ate there 3 times during the week. The local area was amazing as well with the great town of Damariscotta (my wife and I LOVED strolling the streets there and sampling all the small cafes and restaurants while shopping for local goods) and the Pemaquid Lighthouse was the ultimate place for a family photo-op! If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay, in a quiet area with a small-town feel (they even have a full-service gas station in Damariscotta!!!), fantastic food, and the nicest people you ever want to meet (especially the owners--THANKS, Marjorie!!!), then Plummer Point is the place for you! We can't wait to go back again. It was the BEST!!!

Owner's Response: We're so glad Plummer Point made great memories for this family! While we don't offer a big TV, it's a comfortable place, and there's always something to explore for adventurous visitors. (Small note to others: it would be very difficult to stay at Plummer Point with no car. I think this reviewer mistakenly checked this box.)
