Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Tall pines, perennial gardens, and the Damariscotta River make up the scenery around this picturesque Christmas Cove retreat. Located on Rutherford Island’s highest hill, Middlepoint is the ideal setting for a private multigenerational gathering.

Inside, find coastal cottage decor and distinctly New England accents -- hardwood floors, exposed beams, and even a secret back hall. The first-floor master suite includes a soaking tub, and the expansive back deck offers chaise lounges, a hammock, and a six-person table for al fresco dining.

Coveside Marina&Restaurant is 3 blocks away, and nearby Island Grocery is the place to go to stock up on vacation goodies. Take a 7-minute drive to visit the historic Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.

ABOUT THE HOUSE

Traditional New England meets coastal cottage at Middlepoint, where hardwood floors, braided rugs, and period furniture add warmth.

A vibrant area rug accents the spacious, sunlit living room, where two white couches and several accent chairs invite conversation beside the fireplace.

Granite counters line the large kitchen, which is equipped with a gas range, two ovens, and a fridge. Pristine white cabinetry contrasts with the sleek stainless steel appliances.

The dining room holds a large table with comfortable seating for up to eight, as well as picture windows showcasing stunning ocean views and a decorative cast iron wood-burning stove. Around the corner, an office provides a quiet work space complete with a large desk, monitor and printer. Nearby, a bright half bath features a corner pedestal sink.

Step onto the deck to take in the surroundings – expansive ocean views, lush perennial gardens and tall pines. There's a propane grill, a dining table for six, and chaise lounges to soak up the sun and take in the John’s Bay vista.

The serene master suite awaits with a queen-size bed, 55” flat-screen TV with Netflix access, and two patterned sitting chairs from which you can relish the view. A shared en-suite bathroom features a tub, shower, and double-sink vanity.

Upstairs, the second bedroom has a queen-size bed and a unique en-suite bath setup -- two closets converted into a water closet and a shower.

The third bedroom is perfectly outfitted for a young family: a comfy queen-size bed as well as a crib and a changing area. The fourth bedroom, which is accessible through the third or a secret back hallway, has a king-size bed. The guest bath on this floor has a tub/shower combination.

Amenities include Wi-Fi, a large laundry room, and parking for four cars in the driveway.

THE LOCATION

Enjoy quiet, picturesque seclusion and proximity to Christmas Cove and South Bristol center. Coveside Marina&Restaurant is within 3 blocks of your door, and renowned Osier’s Seafood is less than a mile away — a must-visit for lobster roll lovers. Fresh Damariscotta river oysters can be sampled at Gliddon Point Oyster Farms or nearby Mook Sea Farm. Take a peek into the past at Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site and the Thompson Ice House, just 2.2 miles away. The picturesque town of Damariscotta is just up the road.

Reviewer Comments:

Views to the ocean and beyond. Abundant wildlife. We saw foxes, turkeys, deer, a groundhog, chipmunks, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, hawks, and gold finches. Rental management responded to our call immediately when we smelled gas. Turned out to be an empty propane tank which they then replaced. Home is lovely and spacious. Location is superb. My favorite place to shop was Damariscotta at the Skidompha Secondhand Book Shop that is a relaxing place to hang out as well as an unparalleled selection of books that benefit the local library.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented this house for four adults and two young adult kids and all agreed that it exceeded our expectations. The house itself is self-employed and lovely but the property on which it sits is magnificent. It is not On the water but has a stunning view of the bay on the backside of the house with a very nicely landscaped and fairly expansive yard surrounded on three sides with wooded areas that provide privacy from adjoining properties. The house provided plenty of room for us to spread out and not feel we were in too if one another and ample bathrooms. We cooked at least one meal each day and having rented many vacation homes we were very pleased at how well the kitchen was equipped. This house is also not in a high tourist area so it was extremely peaceful but a relatively short drive to areas like Damariscota and Boothbay for shopping, whale watch excursions, etc. We had a fantastic stay here and would love to return!
