Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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.

About Emily Rowan

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.

Emily Rowan purchased this house in 2000

Why Emily Rowan 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.

What makes this house unique

The private dock is an excellent space to sit out and enjoy the ocean breeze, or stargaze at night.

Charming waterfront home in South Bristol.

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a nicer spot. On the water with dock, privacy, lovely patio and gardens, and the layout of the house is comfortable and cozy.

Peaceful, Spacious, Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We were awestruck with this place! Beautifully decorated with so many special touches that you just felt the warmth of love and family in every room. Very comfortable for us- 6 adults and 2 toddlers. Plenty of room, the home didn't lack for a thing, and it's so spacious and well-constructed with exposed beams, nice windows, big kitchen, dining room, nice bathrooms, sitting rooms, and the grounds are perfect for families with the swings, hammock, and sitting areas---all overlooking the cove. We felt like the luckiest people in the world to find this place!

Wonderful place to stay

I hated to leave this well cared for, beautifully located, comfortable place. The views, the outdoor spaces, the house itself were all a delight.

Blissful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely home in a beautiful part of South Bristol. Everything worked out splendidly on short notice. The house is comfortable and so spacious. Everyone could find a private nook or gather together in the common area. The kitchen is very roomy and well stocked. The weather even cooperated! (A rarity in April in Maine) The loons greeted us and a few seals were even spotted. Thank you so much for sharing such a fantastic home!

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!!!!
