A great getaway!
We had a great vacation! The house was right on the water and it was quiet since it was after Labor Day. The Cove Side Restaurant was only a 300 foot walk away and was open on the weekend. They had a band on Friday night which we thoroughly enjoyed. We also enjoyed having a cup of coffee in the mornings on the porch, smelling the salt air, and watching the boats come and go from the cove. If you are looking for rustic and quiet, I highly recommend this vacation home.
Very comfortable home in great location. Well-appointed and immaculate. We would stay there again!
Great house, cozy and comfortable!! Plenty of room and simply gorgeous views.
Maine at it's Best!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Firs. This is a well seasoned summer
cottage that met my every need. Everything you could think of is there;
from kids movies, to fishing rods, comfortable beds and wi-fi. The owner
quickly responded to questions and provided some interesting historical
This was my first visit to South Bristol. I found it to be very relaxing. People
are friendly and, of course, the views are amazing. I enjoyed watching kids
learning to sail on the other side of the cove. You are a short drive to groceries
and several excellent places to eat. Take the time to find an exceptional ice cream
stand up in Damariscotta.
A true Maine experience
We had a glorious week at The Firs. Christmas Cove is off the beaten tourist path, so we were hoping for peaceful and non-commercial, and we were not disappointed! Many hours were spent on that porch enjoying the breezes and view of the harbor. Although the most popular restaurant on the island is nearby the neighborhood feels residential with the biggest activity we could see was going for a walk or jog, with or without a dog.
A family member who is recuperating from hip surgery found this house a great place to mend - after negotiating a few steps to the front door, a first floor bedroom and adjacent bath made it easy to be part of the family vacation.
We found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook some great local seafood. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms too. I hope The Firs is available next time we want to rejuvenate in Maine!
Loved everything about the house. Location was exactly what we wanted! Could use some new pots and pans and more light in the upstairs bathroom. Also the enclosed porch was quite a surprise, this was not listed in the pictures of the house and we spent most of our time in this room!! Thank you Mark for letting us enjoy your home!
