Make a vacation rental in South Bristol, USA your home away from home

Things to do in South Bristol, USA

As is well known, Maine has more coastline than any other US state, despite being relatively small in terms of area. This is because the waterfront here is so craggy and varied, and the coast around South Bristol vacation accommodation is no different. Much of the water in the area is very sheltered, making it perfect for a range of family-oriented activities such as sailing – while canoeing and kayaking are increasingly popular forms of recreation in Maine. Guided expeditions are organised, with interesting information offered on Maine’s nature and history. As you might expect for a destination that is known for its water-based activities, fishing is important, both as an industry and a form of tourism. There are plenty of local businesses offering bait, advice on the best spots and boat hire. If you head for a South Bristol vacation rental in mid-summer, then there are a number of beaches to discover. One of the best is a short drive away at Pemaquid, which boasts a good range of facilities and is the ideal spot to experience Maine’s bracing water temperatures. On land you could take the chance to explore the area, with sleepy villages and forest waiting to be enjoyed – Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is an important landmark and dates back to the early 19th Century to guide ships past a trick portion of the Maine coast.

Around half an hour from South Bristol vacation accommodation is the city of Bath, which has long been recognised as an important maritime and shipbuilding centre for the state. This status is underlined by the Maine Maritime Museum and Shipyard, where you’ll be able to board historic vessels.

Weather in South Bristol, USA

Perfect Place for Family Celebration/Vacation

5 of 5
We have just spent a wonderful week at Captain's Cottage celebrating our 5oth Anniversary with our family, which included 6 adults and 4 grandchildren ages 7-16.The house is warm and inviting with lots of interesting art and antiques to look at.Eveyone from age 7 to 73 found a book to read from your extensive collection.The downstairs game room was a perfect diversion for teenagers during the adult cocktail hour. The eating facilities were very good with room on the kitchen island to do a buffet for a casual meal.The 3 mile and 4 mile connecting running /bike routes from the house was great for our exercise enthusiasts.Although the water was too cold for swimming, the dock was a great place to relax and try our luck at fishing. Dusk kayak trips were beautiful and we saw quite a few seals. We practically lived on the screened deck enjoying the view at all hours. Marianne was helpful with information and so pleasant. It was a wonderful vacation and the cottage was absolutely perfect. I would enthusiastically recommend Captain's Cottage to anyone.
