Holiday Rental House
Beautiful new build cottage (2015) on Rutherford Island looking out onto John's Bay. The 'Boathouse' has two spacious bedrooms upstairs along with a bathroom with tub. There is also a nice little reading nook on the landing separating the two bedrooms. The building itself is approximately 15 years old; it was a wood working shop that was converted into a guest house. Downstairs there is a spacious kitchen with new appliances including a super quiet dishwasher. A large island with seating is a great place to enjoy morning coffee or to chat with the chef. A large pantry separates the kitchen from the downstairs bathroom. A dining table can seat 6 and enjoys water views. There is a Rumford wood burning fireplace (wood supplied) along with a 3 seat couch and two armchairs and a television wit...Beautiful new build cottage (2015) on Rutherford Island looking out onto John's Bay.

Window seats on either side of the fireplace add more seating to the living area. There is a laundry room with deep sink and washer/dryer off the kitchen for your convenience. All towels and linens are provided. There is wifi and a roku media player for entertainment. We have two sea kayaks that you are welcome to use. The harbor is around the corner, just a 10 minute paddle away. There is a propane grill that is hooked into the house supply-no running out! We are right on the water with a nice dock that can accommodate a few chairs at cocktail hour. We have a friendly dog who roams the property. Your well-behaved dog is welcome. Housekeeping is included in the rate. More

Spent the first part of September at the South Bristol Boathouse and enjoyed every minute of it. This area, South Bristol, is what I would consider the quiet side of Maine. Not a lot going on locally with few restaurants or other commercial properties. Being...More
