South Bristol cottage description

Johns Bay Cottage is part of the McFarland Estate in the center of Christmas Cove. The estate contains over an acre of lawns and gardens with commanding views of the Cove, Johns Bay and the Atlantic. In addition to the cottage, there are two other residences and a boatbuilding barn on the compound, which was once the center of boat building in the area. Everything has been rebuilt since 2007, from plumbing, electric, roof and floors to the interior. Renovated bedrooms, baths and kitchen boast stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, linens, kitchen utensils and china. Upper level bedroom with twin bed and full bath just completed in 2011. High Speed Internet Access is available. Air conditioning window units. 24 hour handyman and professional cleaning service.

Rutherford Island is the quintessential Maine coastal getaway--sea views all around, glittering night skies, perfect summer temperatures. When you return home from antiquing, touring, sailing or other salty sports, enjoy a glass of wine on the deck while you watch the sun set over Christmas Cove, listen to the waves crashing on Johns Bay, and stare at the amazing night stars and Milky Way. Do bring your telescope!

We have an apartment above the garage that may also be rented, please contact owner for details.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Though we live in Virginia much of the year, we eagerly await summers in Maine. We are often in residence in the other home on the compound and would be happy to answer any questions guests may have. While Leo is retired from government service, Bobbee is still active in real estate in VA. Leo is a sailing, golf and model airplane enthusiast. Bobbee enjoys oil painting and swimming. Both of us love to share our enthusiasm for the area with visitors!

                          Why the Owner Chose South Bristol:
                          We visited friends in Christmas Cove for many years and were always eager to return, as we loved the sea, the sailboats and the peacefulness of the area. In 2007 we had an opportunity to purchase the perfect property in the perfect location, directly across from the Cove. Now we look forward to driving trough the quaint town of South Bristol to our perfect island getaway.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Crossing the swing bridge onto Rutherford Island and driving a mile, past the church and through the woods to the property, you will immediately relax. Here you can listen to the sea and experience nature with a Rachel Carson sense of wonder.
