Well appointed 3 bedroom home with 2 separate living areas, 2 sun porches, large dining room, eat in kitchen, 1 1/2 baths with laundry - as well as private patio and deck.
Please bring your own bed linens and towels. Blankets and pillows are provided.
Sandy beach with fascinating tidal pools and views of the ocean open is steps away. Bring your kayak and paddle off to numerous islands in Casco Bay or just relax on the deck and enjoy the large yard for family fun and cook-outs!!
Avid travellers - we'll most likely be off on an Airstream journey when you are here! Music, great food, and friends are our passion, where ever in the world!
Jane and Paul purchased this house in 1997
Come and see for yourselves - see photos!
They way life should be - just watching the tide come in and out!
If you're debating on what house to rent in Maine...stop, this is it. We were 6 adults on vacation from NYC and this fit our needs perfectly. The house is huge! and has everything you could hope for. The porches alone are worth the stay, but you can also grab the deck chairs and sit by the ocean which is right there!!! We loved the back patio with the big picnic table with a grill. I have nothing but good things to say about this place and Jane who was lovely to work with and answered all my questions.
Bailey island is so cute and quaint and if you do stay here I recommend all things baked from the Salt Cod Cafe which is just 3 min down the road. A blueberry muffin with butter and a cup of coffee sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean is euphoric.
This was our first trip to Bailey Island and we could not have found a better place. The house was cozy and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us. The kids loved the upstairs room with the futon and TV, and there were plenty of games and puzzles to do. The views are fantastic! I loved the upstairs porch with the settee and waking up to the sound of the ocean and the gulls flying around the lobster boats. The kitchen had everything we needed except a grill for pancakes. Also, a clothes line or more hooks for wet suits and towels would be great.
The island itself is lovely and quiet but there is plenty to do and see. We hiked the Devils Back with the kids and my 87 year old mother. Perfect hike on a perfect day! The beach in front of the house is a great spot to sit or collect sea glass. The swimming was wonderful at either tide, but incoming was the most fun with the waves. Boogy boards recommended for even more fun! The front lawn was great for the kids to play games on, and the tree provides enough shade when you need a break from the sun but still want to be near the water.
Thank you to our hosts, Jane and Paul, for helping us get settled in the house and for being two of the nicest people I have met. Hope to see you again next year!
This house is in a quiet area on what feels like a safe family oriented neighborhood. The walk from the porch to the beach was exactly what someone sick of the Cape Cod pack-the-car each day experience needed to really relax. The water was refreshing and clear as can be. The tidal pools were great for the kids. The house has a great layout for a family. I would recommend the house to anyone.
My family ended up staying here because of weather back home. We had never heard of Bailey Island and there were no reviews of this house so we were apprehensive but now we say we made lemonade out of lemons. The house was perfect for us, two kids and two adults.
Jane made us feel at home right away and helped answer all of our questions. The island has a very nice atmosphere with a great community.
We can't wait to go back next year.
