Heaven in So. Bristol

  • 5 of 5

The perfect getaway-- surrounded by beautiful woods, real log cabin, chef s kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, a wonderful deck- snuggled into the woods, but just a walk from town or Christmas Cove. We hit the jackpot and the owner was .more than accommodating and very easy to deal with. Value was terrific. We loved it and will return.

I've been traveling to this area of Maine a lot over the past two years and this has been the best house so far! Leslie was kind and accommodating.

Lovely house - central and secluded

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in August 2015. The house is really great and well-suited for dogs -- we brought our two high-energy hunting dogs and they loved the house and the land. The kitchen, living room and deck were the stars. The kitchen is well outfitted for a rental, but don't expect everything. The bedrooms were okay - the queen in the master bedroom felt small. The only king is in the basement as two twins pushed together.

The area is wonderful. You're just a few minutes from a couple restaurants, the "downtown" area of S Bristol, and the ocean. We definitely recommend checking out the area on Google maps, Tripadvisor, etc. if you're not already familiar with it. Also check out drive times... Boothbay is only couple miles or so as the crow flies, but it's an hour in the car.

Leslie, the owner, was very responsive by phone and text. He dropped by at one point to deal with a couple loose ends and was very nice and offered advice about the area.

Overall, a perfect spot for the week.

Private Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a relaxing week in Christmas Cove. We really enjoyed our stay. The owner was spectacularly easy to work with from start to end. The pictures do not do the house and property justice. We have stayed at several VRBOs and most pictures are taken with a wide angle lens making the space look bigger than it is. We were pleasantly surprised to find this home is just the opposite. We had 5 adults, 2 pre-teens and our dogs and never did we feel as though we had no space. The entire home is open and bright. It is extremely dog friendly. The only downfall would be the location- the home is located in a remote area. This is wonderful if you are looking for privacy but be prepared to drive to activities. We highly recommend this home for a family gathering.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying at this property. It is very spacious. The deck on the back of the house was wonderful for the children to play.
