Newly Constructed Friendly Cottage on Oceanside, Bailey Island is now available for your seaside vacation, no matter the season. This well-insulated cottage, heated and cooled by solar and geothermal systems, is appealing during the less - crowded brisk Maine springs, the lazy ocean-breezed days of summer, the colorful crisp days of fall, or the quiet peaceful days of winter.

Friendly cottage is on the east side of the island with an unhindered view of Casco Bay and spectacular sunrises, and sits on a secluded beach at the dead end of a quiet neighborhood.

Yet, the cottage is in walking distance of the general store, post office, a non-denominational church, several local eateries including the famous Cook's Lobster House as well as Mackerel Cove, the hub of the fishing and boating community. Entertaining and socializing has a comfortable flow in this 3 bedroom-2 bathroom home - perfect for family get-togethers, reunions, special events or simply a nest to enjoy the Maine experience.The nearest shopping centers are in Brunswick (13 miles away and a 30 minute drive) .Stopping at a grocery store before you come to Bailey Island might be more convenient, although there is a general store with limited supplies.

Experience living in a newly constructed near net zero energy efficient home.Friendly Cottage is a excellent example of a home built with many innovative technologies including solar hot water panels, geothermal and photovoltaic power just to name a few .If you are considering building an energy efficient home with all or some of these technologies, come for a stay!

Beautiful. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property on beautiful Bailey Island. We were there in December, so there wasn't a whole lot going on, but we were looking for peace and quiet and the property delivered. I'm not exactly sure how old the property is, but it appeared brand new with all the amenities you could want -- the washer and dryer were very helpful. We had no problem keeping the cottage warm despite the cold temperatures outside.

The owner, Eric, was very easy to deal with. He was available to answer any questions, but gave us the privacy we were looking for. Would certainly go back.

A New England Classic Updated!

  • 5 of 5

This is a new house with state of the art geothermal heating and solar panels on the roof. Granola sounding as that might be though this is an exquisite home in the classic New England style set on Casco Bay. The windows in each room are unadorned and fill the house with light and offer clear - and magnificent views - of the water and the lobster boaters at work.

It is fully - and nicely - equipped though minus one blue goblet which is the result of a bit of careless clean-up on our part !

There is lots to do in the area - or nothing to do but sit and relax either inside or on one of the red chairs set at the edge of the beach.. These are wonderful alternatives.

We give Friendly Cottage and its owners an A plus.

Our only complaint? More pillows please..

Owner's Response: Great description of the cottage and more importantly so glad you enjoyed your visit to Friendly Cottage. Don't worry about the broken goblet and we will make sure there are more pillows. All the Best Eric Smith 207-837-5955

Wonderful time!!

  • 5 of 5

As this was our first trip to Maine, we had a great time at the Friendly Cottage. The owners were very easy to work with. The views from the cottage were spectacular! The kids enjoyed looking for sea glass, and shells each day and climbing the ever changing rock formations. The house was clean, comfortable, and well supplied. During our week there, we enjoyed kayaking, sailing, lobstering, and enjoyed the food at several of the local restaurants. The cottage is conveniently located to Freeport and Portland, about a 30-45 minute drive. We would highly recommend the Friendly Cottage to everyone who is looking for a great home base to relax and recharge. We hope to return again.

Great cottage in gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved this cottage and highly recommend it. The location, amenities, and cleanliness of the cottage were all excellent. Just a mile walk or drive to several restaurants, to a hiking trail along the rocky coast, and to sea kayaking.

Fabulous family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Bailey Island, and it was by chance that we found the friendly cottage. What a great choice. The cottage was exactly as described. Clean, spacious, and included everything we needed for a great week with our family. The kids loved walking along the waters edge collecting shells, sea glass and rocks. The views from the cottage were breathtaking and we lucked out with fabulous weather.

We tried to pack in as much as possible, so day trips are the norm for us. Bailey Island is definitely a center point on the coast and an easy drive to major towns, sights. We even made the 3 hour trek up to Bar Harbor one day--well worth it.

We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone looking for a true Maine coast experience.

Relax & Enjoy - There's something in the air.

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd stay at Friendly Cottage. The cottage is perfect, well kept and comfortable with ocean views, breezes and access to a small beach. Morning sunrises are breathtaking, as were the perseid meteor showers at night. Owners are friendly and wonderful.

Nearby H2Outfitters provides great kayaking tours of the local waterways for beginners like ourselves looking to explore Casco Bay's tidal pools teaming with life.

Walk the short oceanside trail near the Giant Stairs and venture out onto the rocks to enjoy the view and breezes.

Bailey Island General Store is a short walk away for a cup of joe, breakfast and/or lunch items in addition to small household items.

Visit the island art shows to see local artisan's work and chat with the locals, and take a visit to the Harpswell Historical society for a history of the island's early settlers.

Nearby Brunswick and Freeport provide a worthy adventure with it's shopping and restaurants.

My title says it all. There's something in the air and you will leave this place relaxed and happy.

The salt water air surrounding Friendly Cottage is loaded with negative ions that you will inhale in abundance. Negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. Add to this the wonderful surrounding views, the crashing ocean waves and local eateries and you are pretty much guaranteed to leave this place feeling better than when you arrived. To me it just couldn't be better.
