Absolutely Delightful! (It is now called the Christmas Cove Inn.) Made reservations with a friend for the small room with twin beds on the 2nd floor. It was small but cozy and we were able to use the shower in adjacent room since it was empty that night. All the rooms are spacious and well appointed, with attention to details.... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is very nice. Located on the edge of Pigeon Forge with easy access to the main road. Beds are sublime and so is the free breakfast. Very entertaining hotel as there is so much to walk around and see. The grounds are lit up every evening and it is beautiful.

We stayed here as a part of a Kayak and stay trip with Maine Kayak. The B & B is a clean friendly place to stay. It is slightly off the beaten path. Richard, the owner of the B & B, will pick you up at the dock if you kayak in or you can drive up to the house... More

We stayed here during our kayaking excursion with Maine Kayak.Richard was such a thoughtful and interesting host, and the inn was just beautiful. The gardens were beautifully landscaped and the location was both convenient and stunning. We'll be back again to both the inn and Maine Kayak!

The Christmas Cove Inn on Rutherford Island (South Bristol, Maine) is one of the best B&B's we have ever enjoyed. The house is very spacious, very well furnished, and has ample modern features. Rutherford Island is definitely a good place to get away from it all, and the kayaking on Muscongus Bay is spectacular. Richard is a very hospitable host... More

Richards home is interestingly decorated with memorabilia and art from around the world. Warm and interesting the rooms invite you to explore. Richards attention to detail and willingness to accommodate are unmatched as is his character. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we had more time to explore the inn and Richards cooking. This inn is very pet friendly.

My daughter and I have had the good fortune to stay at the Christmas Cove Inn twice. Our vacation cottage is not too far from this wonderful B&B. Last year when early Spring weather was not suitable for us to stay in our uninsulated cabin, we needed to find a place nearby which would accommodate our family/guests and our dog.... More

Regrettably I only had one night to spend at Richard's great bed and breakfast. Formerly called the Unique Yankee, it is now the Christmas Cove Inn. A delightful place, a delightful host in a delightful place.
