Maine Coast House with Spectacular Ocean Views and Sandy Beach for Swimming

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

The house has amazing views and has access to a private sandy beach (rare in Maine). It is located on one of the the highest points on a quiet peninsula in South Bristol. The house overlooks Mcfarland's Cove on one side and John's Bay on the other.

The nearby town seems as if it has been ripped from the pages of story books. It is an authentic working lobster village with one of the oldest swing bridges in the state. It is a picturesque as it gets!

Become immersed in the Maine coast lifestyle! You will wake up to the sounds of seagulls and fishing boats that are off in the distance. You can buy just caught lobster on the nearby docks for the lowest prices imaginable. In the evenings watch the osprey hunt for fish in Mcfarland's cove. If you are lucky you might even see a bald eagle. If you like fishing and boating you will not be disappointed!

All the amenities of home along with the beautiful town of South Bristol

  • 5 of 5

Great place to enjoy all that Maine is. What wonderful people and the town is right out of a story book. Quaint and picturesque as it can get. The freshest fish available right from the docks; cooked or take it home and prepare it yourself.

Comfortable, great location and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable home. There were good views from the decks and it was a very short walk to the water. We enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The king bed in the master was very comfortable!

Spectacular views of the water. It was magical sitting in bed watching the sun rise with my son.

The house was clean, cozy. Had everything we needed and more. This was our first experience with VRBO and will definitely use again. We look forward to coming back and enjoying all those decks.

This house is just lovely, well equipped and comfortable. The general area is beautiful and there's lots of touristy things to do somewhat nearby.

Refreshing sea air in the quietest neighborhood...

  • 5 of 5

We love to come to ME off season and try a different area each year and thru VRBO we've always been happily satisfied...and this year, Maggie's place in S. Bristol was no exception. The house is immaculate; brand new, and everything we needed was there. No surprises! What a wonderful thing it is to borrow a family's home, land, and history for a few days get-away and then return to our own places with new memories. I enjoyed waking each morning to the sunrise over the water-the house is simply filled with light and the decks offer great views. Like her brother, Dave, said, "You're on Maine time now!" Something about the sea air @ Mac Farland's Cove makes you...happy to be there. My 87 yo mom enjoyed a schooner sail @ nearby Boothbay (East Wind) and even made it up the narrow stairs @ Pemaquid Lighthouse to the view of crashing waves, (her highlight). Mine was revisiting Popham Beach -an hour drive away, but worth it, and hiking to the island during low tide and finding sand dollars. Coming back to the Cove for grilling on the deck was home! (Nearby Osier's or Pemaquid Co-op were great for take -out or eat there seafood-and the Boothbay Harbor Co-op.) Much appreciated, Maggie!
