About the Property
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
The house itself is unique and classic. It has exposed wood throughout, pine floors, a nice open floor plan which combines the living and dining rooms, and a fireplace to gather around at night. Outside, a large porch with rocking chairs and a wicker seating area provides a perfect spot to soak in the stunning views. Other features include Adirondack chairs, a fire pit, picnic tables, and a private dock (perfect for swimming and fishing) and mooring. A spacious lawn in the front allows for fun and games.
Although the house is a classic Maine oceanfront cottage, everything is brand new including all the appliances, all the beds (high-end Serta hotel beds), the linens (300+ thread count), the down blankets, the TV (a 39” HD flat screen with DirecTV), the DVD player with a movie library, and a fully furnished chef’s kitchen. We also have high speed wireless internet access.
The house has five bedrooms and sleeps 12 comfortably (one king, three queens, and one large bedroom with four XL single beds).
Island Grocer, a gourmet shop/deli, is two minutes down the road so you never have to worry about getting your morning latte with the daily New York Times. Additionally, there are many great restaurants minutes away.
Local attractions include:
• Pemaquid Lighthouse – perhaps the most photographed lighthouse in the U.S.
• Boothbay Harbor – one of Maine’s most charming harbors with great shopping and restaurants
• Monhegan Island – a famous artist colony and long-time home of Andrew Wyeth
• Fort William Henry – A National Historic Landmark built in 1692
CONCIERGE service available. Please ask for details.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
When the Bear, his family and friends arrived at this quaint cottage home in South Bristol, Maine, we were immediately charmed by its idyllic location. The cottage was nestled above McFarland’s Cove, a secluded and tranquil cove which led out to the Atlantic Ocean. Surrounded by gorgeous trees dappled in autumn colors and a view of the bay that was postcard-perfect, the cottage was a real hidden gem! The cove and its calm turquoise waters were absolutely perfect for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and swimming. We truly enjoyed watching the local lobstermen coming in and out of the bay as they pulled up their catch of the day. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to flag down a boat for some fresh Maine lobster straight from the sea!
The cottage has a terrific deck overlooking the cove complete with plenty of comfy seating for relaxing and taking in the breathtaking views. We especially enjoyed watching the sunrise over the bay as there’s simply nothing as serene and as peaceful as an East Coast sunrise. The cottage’s interior was very cozy, with a great cabin feel and a warm fireplace to gather around with the family. The dining room boasted perfect bay views and was ideal for nightly dinner feasts as well as fun and games with family and friends. The rustic charm of the home included a fully stocked country kitchen and hotel grade beds… what more can a bear ask for?! The Bear had to pry himself from the luxuriousness of his bed to begin exploring Southern Maine.
We walked the leaf-strewn roads, explored the beautiful coves and frolicked in the leaves. We enjoyed the local fare of “lobsta”, “clam chowda”, steamed and fried clams. We stopped at a few wineries in the Maine area for tastings. Plus, we toured a few of the neighboring towns of Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Camden, Rockland, and Pemaquid. Whether it’s autumn, winter, spring or summer, a scenic drive is best for photographing the area’s vivid landscape. There was so much beauty to be seen in Maine, you cannot take a bad photo of the region’s ponds, rivers and hidden coves.
Overall, we enjoyed the beauty and history of the Pemaquid Lighthouse, historical homes, shops, and harbors. Maine’s motto tells it all… “Maine, the way life is supposed to be!”

Why the Owner Chose South Bristol, ME, USA:
Every summer since 1973 our extended family has made the annual pilgramige to this very special place, MacFarlands Cove, in South Bristol,Maine. Our family has grown in size over the years and I felt it was neccessary to acquire the adjacent property to the one that has been so special to us for so long. I rented this property last summer and loved it so much I purchased it as soon as I discovered that it was on the market.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The fishing is outstanding right off of the dock !
