Charming cottage across the bridge on Rutherford Island. Has path to water views and great views of 'The Gut', Damariscotta River and East Boothbay. Quick walk or ride to picturesque Christmas Cove and Coveside Restaurant and marina. Enjoy this spot as a base to explore the beauty of coastal Maine.
My husband and I loved our cottage, and would rent again in a second. Actually we plan on going back this coming summer, although the cottege is winterized for year round living, I understand. The cottage is on a quiet working fishing harbor, and the island is beautiful. A small cafe, bakery, deli. market,store is 2 cottages away. It is non tourist-y, and the deck was fabulous. The furniture very comfortable, clean, beds great, bathroom, newly redone and spacious. We could not believe, renting an unseen property, was so perfect. I would highly reccommend this rental to anyone.
Everything was wonderful. A very cozy and comfortable house in a perfect location. Great for kids with a yard to play in, walks to the water and into town, a big deck with water and sunset views, games, boats and a swing bridge to watch right down hill, and easy drives to many nearby locations. The Birds were wonderful to coordinate with and very helpful, and their beautiful house was just as expected. Highly recommended!
What a great week at the Bird's Nest with my family of 7 on Rutherford Island! The house is very well maintained and had plenty of room for all of us. Pam and Greg do a great job of balancing the historic charm of their cottage with modern amenities like a beautiful bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, TV, and WIFI. We loved enjoying the view of the Damariscotta from the back deck, walking down to "the gut" and the fishermen's co-op, and exploring South Bristol by canoe and bike. The only bad part was having to pack up and leave!
Loved this charming home. Very cozy and full of charm. This was the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary ! We choose it because of the online photos and found the house to be just like the photos. Quiet and private. We would highly recommend this lovely home . The owners were wonderful to work with. We would definitely rent this lovely home again!!
We had a wonderful time staying at this adorable cottage. As a base to visit nearby family, it was perfect in every way. Very clean and in a fabulous location. It is a gorgeous little gem and we hope to return next year as well. Thank you for sharing!
We had a wonderful week at this cozy, comfortable, very clean and well-equipped cottage on picturesque Rutherford Island. It was the perfect "home base" for our explorations of mid-coast Maine, with great walks, kayaking, visits to the fantastic Popham Beach and the great view from Mount Battie, and nearby Pemaquid Point. There are fine restaurants in the area (Van Lloyd's Bistro in Damariscotta was exceptional), but we also enjoyed our own cooking in the clean, bright kitchen and watching beautiful sunsets from the deck - even seeing shooting stars! Pam and Greg Bird are quite easy to work with and know they have a vacationer's treasure to share. We're really looking forward to returning!
Enjoy biking, walking and kayaking in this picturesque setting. Dining and entertainment just five minutes away at Christmas Cove, with more great dining, shopping and recreation in nearby Damariscotta and Pemaquid Point.
