In Bayside, this newly renovated, late1800's, garden cottage is perched above Penobscot Bay, only 20 ft from the water's edge with spectacular 180 degree water views. It's called 'On the Rocks' but many call it the 'Boat House' because when the tide's in, it feels like you're surrounded by water. It's not a completely modern redo of a beach cottage. It retains it's original quirky flavor with modern convenience and style upgrades.
Wireless internet, Bang & Olufsen stereo with port for iPhone or mp3 player, Apple TV, dvd player, video player, (no cable tv) garden patio area, private stairs to beach, private landing on beach.
Downstairs you'll enjoy an open plan -- kitchen with new LG gas range with convection oven and griddle, dining and living area with french doors opening to the deck, and one bathroom with shower, all with water views. There's a new washer/dryer is in the bathroom.
Upstairs you'll find 2 bedrooms, one queen, and two twins, and a half bath.
The interior is a bit eclectic and features some 19th Century Scandinavian antiques and a few modern touches.

You'll find a dock, a tiny honor library, a playground in Bayside plus a golf course! There's active live theater in the area, concerts at the Camden Opera House, art at the Farnsworth, (Wyeth) Colby, Bates and Bowdoin. The local Saturday sailboat races often 'come about' just in front of the cottage's deck.
Just steps away is a dock and a sandy beach, presided over by a full time lifeguard.
Some people come just for the local garden tours and some come just to look for antiques.
Gorgeous schooners will cruise by right in front of you. Some of the finest wooden boats are made locally. And you'll eat very well at all the local foodie destination restaurants, including lobster.
