South Bristol house description
The Rowan home in Maine is a lovely four bedroom house, furnished for year-round rentals.
Located on Rutherford Island in South Bristol, the house is located an hour and a half north of Portland. It's hard to find better boating anywhere, be it kayaking, sailing, or motorboating.
This house features spectacular sunset views across the Damariscotta River and a private dock with two moorings. You can watch the lobster boats come through the harbor to collect their traps. At night, the view of the sky is beautiful and clear.

One is welcomed into a home... the view onto the Damarascottta River is everything described... the sunsets are different every evening... the "stars at night ARE Big and bright..." and the BIG DIPPER in the Fall... beyond description as was the whole of the spangled sky... going over the "swing bridge" and looking at a hard working harbor... and all the lobster pots... the Maine of stories and real... easy to get to so many places ... heartily recommend!!!!

Great Family House
Great Family House
During the week that we stayed in this great house, we had 5 adults and 3 young children. The children absolutely loved the tree swings. The adults loved the outside seating area, where we could watch the kids, the water, the sunsets, etc. When we were inside, the house is set up so that you don't get in each other's way. The house is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside. The master bedroom is huge! Everything we needed was in the house, we only had to provide food. We all had a great time and would rent this house again. It's a great house with a fantastic view right on the water with it's own dock.

More than we expected!
More than we expected!
This is a charming house in an idyllic setting, which was absolutely perfect for two families with 4 children (total) and a dog. The kids were thrilled with the swing, the garden, the dock. The adults loved the local kayaking, biking, swimming and eating options. We made easy day trips to Boothbay and Camden but also spent lots of time relaxing at the house and right nearby. Sunset from the terrace cannot be beaten. The only thing is that, if you do choose to come as two families, the master bedroom is a lot nicer than the other bedrooms (all of which are very cute and clean but smaller). We solved this by swapping half way through and it worked great. We hope to come back again very soon!

About the owner: Hello, my name is Emily Rowan, and I'm a botanical artist living in the DC area. I work for habitat for humanity, and my family has owned and vacationed in this lovely Maine house for years.
Why the Owner Chose South Bristol:
This is a fairly quiet area, mostly consisting of seasonal properties. We were looking for a waterfront property with a sunset view, and this fit the bill perfectly. The house is winterized, and is as wonderful at Christmas time as in the summer. There are many great restaurants in the area - I've highlighted a few of them on the map. Our family visits the house several times a year, and we are always sad to leave. Our two dogs and various extended family all love it as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The private dock is an excellent space to sit out and enjoy the ocean breeze, or stargaze at night. You can keep canoes, motorboats, or sailboats on our dock.
