Fantastic place, spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
From the moment you turn onto the expansive property you're greeted by the sight, sound and smell of the ocean crashing on the rocks. The cottage is one of three houses (yet still very private) on the nicely landscaped grounds. The view from our deck was magnificent; by tweaking the lounge chairs' positions we had an unobstructed and panoramic view of the sea. It felt as if we were totally alone in this beautiful haven.
The cottage is deceptively small from the exterior, but once inside we were surprised at how spacious, open and airy it was. There are ocean views through every window in the open concept living, dining and kitchen areas. The latter was quite large and very well equipped, with modern appliances and everything one needs to do some serious cooking. The decor is straight out of the early 60's, whimsical and a delight to behold. The owners must have dedicated a lot of time to find some of the treasures that grace the house. Every time I turned around there was something that made me smile.
The cottage readily accommodates 4 people, and if a couple of them are children or teens, then 6 would not be pushing the limits. For rainy days, there are innumerable activities within the house; puzzles, games, videos and an eclectic library revolving around some very interesting (and esoteric) themes. For the shoppers, antiquers and browsers, Brunswick, Freeport and Portland are only 20-60 minutes from the cottage.
The cove is easily accessible by clambering down the rocks (or for the less adventurous, there is a convenient rock staircase). At low tide the sand gives way to course grains, then pebbles, stones and boulders. The tide pools are fascinating, and swimming is great regardless of the tide. I HIGHLY recommend surf shoes.
The owners, Susan and Adam couldn't be more gracious (BTW, inadvertently I captured a great picture of the two of you while photographing some ducks, I'll send it off if you give me your e-mail).

All in all, this was one of our finest ocean vacations in Maine, and we've been visiting Maine's ocean every summer for the past 15 years. Serene, beautiful, relaxing, romantic. Thanks for sharing!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Cottage was as advertised and it was a perfect getaway for myself and my husband. Cottage was charming, cozy and spotless! Waterview and beach were wonderful. Our only complaint was that the bedroom was in the center of the cottage and the window opened to the sun room not the outdoors. It was a bit stuffy in there even with the ceiling fan.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jessica- glad we were able to accommodate you on short notice and hope you'll return next summer!
All comments are appreciated - perhaps a fan in the window between the bedroom and the sunroom might be the answer to keep the air moving.
Please keep in mind that our other property - which is fully insulated and heated (VRBO 419566) - is great for a winter break. The coastline and beach are really magical in the snow!!

Wonderful beach getaway and more!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time exploring Bailey's Island (and other Maine locations) from this great cottage. The cottage was extremely well maintained, comfortable, and spotless. The pictures do not even begin to do the views justice. Getting up early with our five month old baby gave us several opportunities to watch the sunrise from the porch, living room couch, or dining room table. The proximity to the ever changing beach with crystal clear calm water offered much easy exploring. I was surprised when I got to the cottage that it was so close to many other houses, but it turned out to be just private enough. I hope to return to this magical place!

Quintessential vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found the cottage and the area to be perfect. This was our first visit to Bailey Island. Loved the lack of crowds, beautiful surroundings, friendly residents, and delicious seafood. Enjoyed biking, kayaking, hiking and lots of relaxing. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. It also is decorated beautifully and we felt very comfortable there. I would recommend it to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kudos - we love Bailey Island as well. It's becoming less of a secret but the folks discovering this little island in Casco Bay are special too!
Hope you return next year!

"Everything" Just Steps Away!

"Everything" Just Steps Away!
  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been coming to Bailey Island for almost 25 years and have enjoyed many accommodations but this cottage fit our needs more than any other. Always important to us, the cottage was spacious and clean, had close proximity to beach and a central position on the island, all making for an ideal stay. With a long list of must-see sights and must-do activities, this mid-island position allows you to walk anywhere in under 30 minutes. We also have kayaks and it was exciting to be close enough to paddle to the nearby uninhabited isles where seals will bask on the ledges (though we were not lucky enough to see them this trip) and the cottage beach allowed for swimming and was rich in collectables, easily the largest volume of quartz on the island I've seen.
Our years living in New Hampshire made for a short trip in the late 1980’s, but we have traveled from western New York for the last 15 of those years and still find that it’s worth the ride. This cottage has only fortified that opinion, it’s a perfect complement to a perfect location. We truly did love it and I hope we are able to return to this cottage next year.

Owner's Response: So glad you brought your kayak - perfect way to almost see the seals. They are elusive! Looking forward to hosting you next year. Keep in mind if you book before the end of 2012 there's a $75 savings on the week stay.
Thanks again for the great review!!
