LARGE FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
I recently rented this house with my family (2 babies, 4 kids, 13 adults) as a weekend getaway - the house accommodated all of us. The house was THAT roomy. The description was more than accurate - when the owner says it sleeps 18, it really comfortably sleeps 18.

House is fully equipped with everything you'd need for a vacation away from home, yet feel like you're right at home. House was also very well kept - clean and well-maintained. Spacious front yard for kids to play. My nieces/nephews also enjoyed the nearby beach.

Yes, the house has a campy feeling to it- but that's not always a bad thing. My family hung out by the common room (basically in front of the fireplace) and it did not feel congested at all. We all had enough space to do what we wanted to do.

Only downside to this rental were the bathrooms - they were a bit outdated. However, given the campy vibe this house gives off, they weren't terrible. Also, you can hear everything in this house - but again, it adds to the campy vibe.

The owner was very accommodating - answered all questions I had - before and during the stay. That was very much appreciated.

Highly recommend this house for family getaways - especially big family reunions. My family enjoyed our stay and hope others will as well.

Thanks for a great stay Terry!

FAMILY GET-TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's 2nd annual vacation. There was supposed to be about 17 of us but narrowed down to 11. We had such a wonderfully relaxing time. The house itself is perfect for a large gathering with the main area (kitchen, dining and sitting area) all open. We found this helpful with keeping our eyes on the little ones. The fireplace and pellet stove gave off enough heat to keep the chill out of the house (no central heating). The beach was a short beautiful walk. We did have to go down a rocky cliff to get down to the beach area but were all able to do so. The outside, at the house, had a beautiful yard that we sat around in and at night had a bonfire (not sure if we were supposed to have a permit for this though). The one thing you must remember that it is an old beach cottage and you could hear everything. That just added to the charm of it. After all it is a large, old beach cottage. To us the added plus was having the owners staying on the property. You would hardly know they were there. They were all delightful. A few of us did spring for a boat ride with Terry and two of his children and that was absolutely beautiful. We would definitely rent here again and would recommend it highly.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for a lovely time on Bailey Island. We were a group of 11, over 55 adults enjoying a family reunion. We were delighted to have enough bedrooms for each couple and 4 bathrooms. The photos in your listing were accurate. Everything was clean and neat. The owner was very helpful when needed. We enjoyed excursions to neighboring areas, Bath, Freeport, Booth Bay, Brunswick. The Lands End gift shop was a very nice and the scerery in the area was beautiful. Food was enjoyed at several small diners and our family out dinner was held at Morses Cribstone Grille. It is a rustic setting and I would recommend it to others. Thank you for a lovely reunion.
You may want to stabilize the picnic style tables better. If too many sit on one side they tip over.

ACCURATELY DESCRIBES THE PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Ideal location for a large family group of varying ages. The property was in very good shape. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. The house is large and very well-equipped with lots of counter-space and ample dishes, cooking utensils, two refrigerators, stoves etc - very suitable for cooking and eating in. There is ample room for a large party to sit and eat and very comfortable sitting space for relaxation. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms large enough and the were enough bathrooms! There is a large grassy area which is ideal for the children to play without having to worry about traffic. The short walk to the beach though trees is interesting and the restricted access to the beach meant that it was never crowded. Because of the difference between the tides the beach seems to present new and interesting experiences each visit. The presence of small islands around the beach restricts the waves so that even small children could swim. The island is very scenic for walking and the local people were very welcoming especially when we attended the local Independence Day Strawberry Social. We would highly recommend this location to anyone with a large family with children who wanted as we did to stay in one location.

Bailey Island is located off the beautiful coast of Maine, connected by bridge so no need to worry about a ferry schedule. We love the area because it is not over crowded like many coastal areas have become, but still offers plenty to do! Our home is located in a quite area, with a lovely 2 acre yard. Bailey Island offers a few nice restaurants and gift shops, antique shops are on neighboring Orr's Island. And Brunswick, Maine, an easy 20 minute drive is the home of Maine St. Music Theater; many music festivals during the summer months; Bowdoin College; many restaurants and shops. Our home is an easy 1/8 mile walk to a beautiful sandy beach with wonderful tide pools to explore. We are pleased to offer fishing charters and nature cruises in the beautiful Casco Bay. You'll fish for the bait fish, mackerel, and then on for the main event, the striped bass! Enjoy the surprise of watching a seal pop up to see what you've caught, or an osprey fly overhead !

Other Activities: Owner operates a fishing charter business
