our best rental yet.
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.
Fabulous cottage in quaint area!
We loved the cottage! Felt like we were staying at a friend's house. The kitchen was well stocked, loved the gas grill and the deck had a fabulous view of the water. The front porch was a fabulous place to just sit and read. We hiked many of the free trails on/near the cottage. Our week went by too fast. We can't wait to visit the area again and stay on Rutherford Island!
Fine location, pleasant cottage, great deck, wonderful sunsets, quiet neighborhood, easy arrangements, owner helpful. Kitchen worked well. Good value.
September in South Bristol
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!
Great stay at the Bird's Nest!
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!
The perfect home away from home !
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!!
Thank you so much for your feedback!
And, Happy Anniversary!
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.
