One of the best features of Marevista cottage is the large, welcoming porch. The wicker furniture and bay views make it the perfect spot to relax. You enter the cottage into the comfortable living room with plenty of seating.The large dining area offers room for enjoyable meals or a challenging family game. While the home maintains its old-fashioned charm, the kitchen was recently updated. Beyond the kitchen is the renovated bathroom decorated with bead board and cheerful colors. Across from the bathroom, the laundry area with washer and dryer is a convenience not found in many Bayside cottages. Up a narrow staircase, which may be difficult for some to maneuver, the 4 bedrooms and a small room with a single commode are arranged. The cottage sleeps 6 comfortably with its 1 queen, 1 double, and 2 single beds.Looking through the colored-glass framed windows, you can wake to glimpse the sparkling bay beyond the neighboring cottages and arise to another terrific day in Bayside!

Brief History of Bayside: Marevista cottage was built in 1878. Originally a Methodist retreat, Bayside's visitors came by steamship and stayed in the large hotel at the top of Ruggles Park. Others stayed in tents and, within years, those tents evolved into the current gingerbread cottages throughout this historical village. Today, the residents, both year-round and seasonal, are a diverse mix of new families and descendants of some of the original families. Bayside is a step back to calmer and quieter times, where people enjoy chatting and storytelling with neighbors and kids make new friends readily.

With all that Marevista cottage has to offer, it's definitely the place to come to do everything or to do nothing at all!

Relaxing week in Maine

  • 5 of 5
The Marvesta Cottage was a wonderful cottage. It is nicely decorated on the inside, the kitchen has everything that you need for preparing meals, especially the lobster pot(we used it a couple of times). The bedrooms are really nice as well. It is such a peaceful community and everybody is so friendly!!! The weather was perfect we may have had rain overnight but nothing during the days while we were there. Can't wait to go back in a couple of years!!!

A Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The Marevista Cottage was delightful with everything you need to enjoy a pleasant stay in Maine.
We are four sisters who had plenty of room to relax and spend time together.It rained the two days we were there,however,that did not keep us from enjoying the many shops in Camden,Rockland and Belfast;all a short drive from Bayside.Of course,we can't forget the wonderful seafood dinners!
We had a minor problem with the heater,but with a quick call to the owners...Problem Solved.We found them very friendly and
accommodating.They provided all the info we might need for the cottage,the area,emergency assistance,and fun things to see and do .on our short "get away".Sincerely,Nancy E.(from Mi.) and sisters

Relaxing Stay at a Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the cottage was great. Bayside is a unique little village with a fascinating history sold by some small interpretive signs scattered around the village. It looks much like it did in 1870 with many preserved Victorian style bungalows. Our September week was very quiet and restful and we did spend a lot of time on the front porch and walking down to the dock for kayaking on the bay. The cottage is well equipped and perfectly clean and we did not miss a TV at all. We enjoyed takeout lobster dinner from the Lobster Pound in Belfast and did daytrips to Camden, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I would recommend a vacation to Mar Vista to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in an authentic cozy cottage.

Beautiful week in Maine!

  • 5 of 5
We had a really pleasant stay at the Marevista Cottage !

First, this cottage is full equiped and the owners are really nice ! They offer a lot of good tips to maximise the pleasure of our stay, for example, suggestions of things to discover around, restaurants, services... Everything is well-organized to offer a relax stay, from the document that explain how to get there to the list of tasks for the checkout.

Bayside is a really interesting place to consider for relax leaves. Cottages are beautiful and you also have access to restaurants, grocery stores and other services in 2 minutes or less than 10 minutes of car depending on your needs. Staying on the porch and saying hello to people who are walking in front of the house is also pleasant thing to do there!

We have also appreciated the central location to discover other points of interest in Maine. We had day trips to Portland Lobster Festival, Acadia Park and Bar Harbor, Old Orchard Beach, Freeport Outlets...

Best Summer Stay

  • 4 of 5
We've been renting houses in Bayside for the past 6 years and this is the best so far. The front porch is roomy and great for morning coffee. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and dishes. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. The location is perfect for a short walk to the dock or across the green to the beach. My children and I had a wonderful, relaxing week.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5
The Marevista cottage was immaculate and exactly as described. A beautiful front porch--coffee in the morning, wine in the evening. Within a very short walking distance to a beach and a park with swings, a slide and basketball courts. The pier was great to jump from for the kids (8, 11 & 15). Very, very relaxing overall. Close to the town of Belfast, with a big grocery store, a movie theater, a diner and touristy shops. Also the Belfast "City" park with a community pool. Clean and free. The owner was communicative before our stay with info about the area and even a neat place for lunch on the way up. The vacation was perfect. Thank you.

Bayside is a residential village located along Penobscot Bay, in Northport (mid-coast Maine). Filled with colorful, Victorian-styled cottages dating from the late 1800s, our peaceful cottage has views of the bay from the large porch and through the colored-glass framed windows. Relaxing on the porch is hard to beat, but you can also sail, kayak, hike, fish, swim, bike, golf, and enjoy a playground all within a short walk! About a mile away, there’s a popular Mexican restaurant and a corner store with pizza, ice cream, and basic grocery needs. Ever-growing Belfast, 3 miles away, offers a range of eclectic local businesses to national chains that meet most needs. The area is full of lakes and parks, lighthouses, antique stores, art galleries and museums, a wide variety of boating excursions, and many seasonal festivals. Popular day trips include: Portland, Freeport, Camden, Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park. Of course, there's lobster. So, come to Maine and do everything or nothing at all!

Other Activities: porch sitting, hiking, kayaking, golf, movies and theatre, shopping, art galleries
