South Bristol house description

In 1879, when Captain Elliot Gamage built his Mansard-roofed Second Empire house, South Bristol, Maine was a quiet, coastal village. He picked a location where he could watch over his father's boat building operations and his own boats coming and going through the Gut - the narrow passage and harbor between the Damariscotta River and John's Bay.

South Bristol has not changed much in 119 years. Captain Gamage's home, Anodyne House, is available to rent by the week. Come and enjoy the quiet life of South Bristol and mid-coast Maine. Anodyne House, located 150 feet from the shore, has nine rooms, four bedrooms, sleeps seven, one-and-one-half baths, a large porch with screened pavilion, Victorian decor, central heat, private yard with wonderful flower gardens, all the amenities.

We can now offer the additional rental of our 'East Wing'. This e room, with its summer cottage decor, is attached to the main house. It has a private bath and fireplace. It can be either a family room or bedroom - your call.
