About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
It is located just on to Rutherford Island, up a bit from the Swing Bridge on the left, facing into the Eastern Gut. The house has spectacular water views from 3 sides, with the sunrise over the Gut and sunset over the Damariscotta River. The land drops quickly to the pier, causing dramatic height and views from the kitchen and master bedroom. All the rooms (including the bathroom) have ocean views.
The Gut is in the village of South Bristol with shops, grocery stores, lobster pounds and 2 full service boat yards. Damariscotta is a 15 minute drive back up the river. Pemaquid sandy beaches are 15 minutes away. Hideaway beaches on Rutherford are close by.
This is a kayackers dream house. Christmas Cove is 2 miles on the south end of the island. Bring your big boat, moorings are available. A 36x40' pier is 35' from the back door with a gangway and float. This pier is located in the lee of most all summer breezes and gets hot during the daytime. There are 2 Old Town Kayaks on the pier for your use.
This is a cozy house, perfect for a couple and a few kids or 2 couples. Plenty of interior photos upon request.
The bathroom was completely rebuilt in the winter 2015.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I've been a small wood sailboat enthusiast and restorer since I was a child. Residential choises have been made principally on the town's harbor. 20 years in Marblehead, 20 years on Mount Desert Island, near 20 years in Portland and maybe the next 20 in S. Bristol. Lisa and I just got real lucky with this sweet little house, with never an idea we could not only own a waterfront place but located most likely in one of the prettiest places in the world. We are likely to end up in S. Bristol year-round in a few years. Until then, we could use the extra income while we easliy share this place.
Why the Owner Chose South Bristol, ME, USA:
The Gut, South Bristol is the finest and one of most protected harbors on the east coast. Our wood boat is moored in the Gut year round 50' off the pier. Working up from the boat, we have a float and gangway attached to a 30 X 40' pier. 40' up from the pier is the house that overlooks the Gut from 3 floors. The house is a comfortable residence that is manageable, comfortable and affordable. Our 14 year old daughter and her friends get to play around the house, pier, boats and the Island like few other kids get to.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Pretty well described in the house profile. I will guarantee you won't be disappointed.
