South Bristol cottage description

This cottage is feet from the water in serene Long Cove on the Damariscotta River. The deck and hot tub face the widest part of the river (which is actually a mile-wide bay off of the ocean) and the famous Maine sunset. The private deep-water dock and sun-warmed rocks provide for great swimming. Though otherwise nestled into the trees, the house has a large lawn off to one side for croquet or tossing a ball.

The cottage itself is beautifully restored - all wood inside and out - with an open floor plan and skylights in the kitchen. Pretty much all of the comforts of home are provided, including linens and a fully outfitted kitchen. Wood is stacked for the fireplace all year long.

There are a number of hiking trails nearby. The kayak rental place in town will deliver and/or pick up kayaks. You can rent in town and kayak back to the cottage; put in at Biscay Pond and kayak thru the wetlands to Bristol; or paddle to some nearby islands with public access for hiking, including one with a pair of nesting bald eagles. Or bring your bikes and peddle to Pemaquid – or to the teeny Island Grocery for a breakfast of heavenly pastries. There’s a big pot in the kitchen if you want to purchase lobsters at the co-op – or they’ll cook ‘em right up for you there. Life is good at 'Marguerite’s Cottage'…

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      About the owner: Our family has lived in this area forever. Our granddad attended the one-room schoolhouse down the road and his father logged a good chunk of the peninsula (selling the land for a buck an acre (!) when he was done swinging his axe). So, this little slice of paradise has always been near and dear in our hearts.

                      Why the Owner Chose South Bristol:
                      It's down the road from our grandparent's home and the owner was a longtime friend. We loved the cottage and it's on about the loveliest spot on the river.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Total serenity. Feeling very close to the great outdoors while having all the amenities to make for a cozy and comfortable stay.
