People who stay with us comment on the peace and beauty of the place. Some relax on the porch and listen to the wind in the trees. Others spend their days out on walks in the area, or go for drives around the beautiful peninsulas of mid-coast Maine.
The cabin was remodeled in 2010 with a new kitchen, an additional bedroom, and an updated bathroom. There is a large living room with a fold-out couch and a single bed for guests. We have purposely avoided bringing in cable or TV, and the sound system is minimal so you can enjoy the nature around you. You can walk to water's edge in seconds, and put your kayaks in for a paddle around the Cove or out to the Damariscotta River.
Each bedroom has a double bed, closet, and bureau. The great room has a sofa bed, soft chairs, and a dining area for six. The bathroom has a full tub and shower.
Seal Cove is teeming with wildlife and you'll have a great view of the seals and waterfowl from the bench in front of the cabin.
Most of our guests have been returning for years. It is a very special place.

VRBO says this section is for 'certain unique activities' that are not listed above. We think Seal Cove is unique and we believe you will, too. Sheila and Gordon live in the house next to the cottage and if schedules allow, we love to meet our guests over a glass of wine, some cheese and crackers, and together we watch the sun set over the cove. How unique is that?
Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: Sheila and Gordon live in Santa Barbara, California for 9 months a year, and in South Bristol for 3. Their grown daughters live in California but come to South Bristol every summer, as they have for the last 21 years. Gordon is COO of a software company in Goleta, CA; Sheila is an artist who sells her work in Damariscotta, just a few miles from the cabin. We've been married since 1976, have been living in the same house since 1979, and have had the property in Maine (next door to the cabin) since 1991. While change is good, good things don't have to change.
Why the Owner Chose South Bristol, ME, USA:
We fell in love with the South Bristol area quite by accident. We were on our way home from a vacation on North Haven Island when we turned off Hwy 1 at Damariscotta. Three months later we owned the property on Pine Bluff Lane and have spent some time there every summer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What we love most about the area is that it provides peace and quiet when you want it, and yet there is plenty to do all around. Whether hiking (or walking on the trails nearby), fishing, boating, kayaking, or shopping and visiting the many restaurants nearby, there's something for everyone.
