Overview

Bailey Island House Rental Photos and Description

Postcard Views Fr Every Room In 5 King Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps Cottage

Experience charming, picturesque Bailey Island a Maine Casco Bay Coastal Island destination for vacationers from all over the world for over 100 years. Because Bailey Island is now connected to the mainland by the World's only existing Cribstone Bridge, it is no longer necessary to take a ferry to visit. 2013 built large 5 king bedroom Ocean House with incredible panoramic views in all directions with back of House located less than 50 feet from Merriconeag Sound on West Side and front of House less than 50 feet from Garrison Cove on East Side of Oceanfront House. Every room has incredible long distance oceanfront views. The view from the front of our property was recently listed in the 60 Year Anniversary Edition of Downeast Magazine as one of the best views in Maine. The House is surrounded by so much water and ocean scenery, you will feel like you are cruising on a boat. See beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the large windows and decks on East, West and North sides of the House. House is in the middle of Lobster Land. Garrison Cove is a working lobster harbor with several lobster boats moored and a working lobster dock in front of the House. Walk 200 yards to famous Cook's Lobster Restaurant and Lobster Pound and eat lobsters at the Restaurant or buy precooked lobsters at the Pound or live ones and cook them at the House. You won't taste fresher or better lobsters anywhere. The lobsters you eat are caught in the waters surrounding the House on the same day by the lobster boats moored directly in front of the House. If you have your own boat, we have a deep water mooring you can use located in Garrison Cove in front of our property. House has many amenities including 60 inch TV and Surround Sound System and gas log fireplace in living room, WIFI throughout house, and 32 inch TVs in all 5 Bedrooms, 3 of which have private decks. Central air conditioning, screen porch overlooking Sound, and decks on both side of house and huge raised sun deck on edge of Merriconeag Sound. The views around the House, especially Garrison Cove and the Cribstone Bridge, are some of the most photographed scenes on the Maine Coast and extend to Small Point to the East, High Head to the North, Harpswell Neck to the West and Cape Elizabeth to the Southwest. From the House, screen porch and decks, see seals swimming in the Sound, lobster men and women setting and pulling traps, and Casco Bay Lines ferry boats, kayaks, skiffs, sailboats, tuna, fishing and lobster boats cruising by just a stones throw from the shore of the property. Walk on the beach on the front of the House adjacent to Garrison Cove or the shoreline on the deepwater oceanfront side finding shells, crabs, mussels, snails, sea glass, driftwood and other ocean treasures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful week in a beautiful house with a thoughtful and kind welcome. A trip never to be forgotten. And thank you for all the "kindnesses" and attention.



Some wonderful things we did: Kayaking in Boothbay Harbor, Reid State Park, Five Islands, and antiquing.



What we saw and discovered: Harbor seals, incredible landscapes, some of the most delicious lobster we ever ate.



Moments, glimpses, and little details that mattered: Looking out from any window in the house to watch the sun rise and set while the lobster boats go by.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week during our 3 week holiday to the states. We spent Christmas week here catching up with family who flew over to meet us. It's a wonderful house and for the week we were there it felt like home. It's the little touches, the themed Christmas tree decorations, the light above the dining table made from a lobster pot float, there is something little in each room that makes the room wonderful. We would love to come back in the summer months to really get the best out of the area. Even with the awful weather the views were amazing and we had some of the best seafood we have ever eaten. It's a wonderful place in a beautiful area our best holiday yet!

Terrific house and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a early-winter Thanksgiving weekend at the Flying Lobster House. We lost power due to a early winter storm, but couldn't have been cozier. Owners were very accommodating and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. Wonderful welcome package greets you - wine, cheese, local goodies. The house is perfect for families - wonderful bedrooms/linens, couches, great place to hang out and recoup. The cove out front is great for beach-combing and exploring. Idyllic Maine location - a must stay for anyone from away or perfect stay-cation!

Outstanding !!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 5 days in this great property, there is nothing comparable to this place.

I have no words to describe the quality of this house, the place, the localisation and on the top of this, the owner is a wonderful person.

Nothing is missing, all details are impressive, there are sea views from each bedroom, living, kitchen ...

We are huge worldwide travellers for years always in nice places and this one is on our top list.

Thank you Mr.MacAdam

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful girls weekend we had at the Lobster house. Everyone could not stop commenting on what a beautiful house this was and the amazing ocean views from every window. On one side of the house we could watch the sunrise and the other the sunset. So many decks and porches to sit and relax on.

The house is extraordinary. There is a large open space on the first floor consisting of the living room, kitchen, dining area and sitting area which made for a wonderful large gathering place. The beds were comfortable and we loved the rock and tile work in the bathrooms. All the rooms are wonderfully decorated in a nautical/ocean theme. Everything was top notch.

Jim the owner was a pleasure to deal with. Before we arrived he answered every email quickly and offered suggestions on what to do. He called the first day to make sure everything was going well and if we had any questions about the house. All of us would highly recommend this house and we hope to come back again.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My week at the Lobster House was so wonderful. Five couples shared a ton of great memories there. As much as there is to see in Maine, my favorite time was sitting out on the back deck watching the sun set. This house offered so much and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to find peace, tranquility, and beauty. Thanks to the owners for all the personal touches, the love welcome gift, and the considerate call just to be sure that we were enjoying ourselves.

A fabulous home!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Flying Lobster is a beautiful home with some of the most spectacular views and sunsets that I have seen throughout the world. The home is very well appointed, beautifully furnished, and a stone's throw from great places to eat (Morse's was our favorite). Kayak rentals are available just across the cribstone bridge (and right next to the Salt Cod Cafe - great blueberry scones). The General Store is a short walk from the house. And, if you want to leave the peace and serenity of Bailey Island, Brunswick and Bath are a short drive away. Jim, the owner, was very helpful with recommendations and was a pleasure to deal with. Believe me, you will never want to leave the waterfront patio (particularly during sunset). If you want to experience the spectacular beauty of the Maine coast, The Flying Lobster is the place to spend a week or two. You will not be disappointed!!!
