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!

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!

Off the beaten path

  • 4 of 5

After a drive through narrow roads to get there we found the house and it was lovely - not too far from Damarascotta, perfect views of the water in two directions, neighboring several other properties full of nice, helpful people. The three story house was well stocked, from the ping pong table in the basement to the fully outfitted kitchen to the balconies off each of the upstairs rooms. We loved every moment of our stay, climbing on the ocean rocks in low tide to the east of the house, playing on the beach to the west, curling up on the balconies with the books gathered from Damarascotta's excellent bookstores. It was an idea long weekend getaway.

Lovely Time!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a week (2 adults) and had a good time. The house is well-located along "Mid-Coast" Maine at the top of a hill, and has a view of water on two sides. It's a short walk to a small sandy beach. The house is comfortable, well-furnished from our point of view, and had laundry facilities and good kitchen appliances, dishes and tools. We truly enjoyed the decks for coffee each morning and planning our day!
