Bailey Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Waterfront Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 6, Fireplace, Sunset-facing Porch

Sunset-facing directly on Merriconeag Sound, SEABREEZE is owner-designed; we built it in 2002. It replicates many of the old (1880's) fishing cottages to be found on Bailey Island. Indeed it is an island, but connected to the Mainland by a unique, historic granite cribstone bridge. The cottage is a 200yd walk to the Garrison Cove boat-launching ramp and popular Cook’s Lobster House. Kayak, Windsurfer, KiteBoard & Electric Bike rentals available on Garrison Cove (www.h2outfitters.com). Fishing, swimming & kayaking.

* Two large, 2d-floor Bedrooms facing the water….one w/comfortable queen; the other w/twin beds (can be put together). Popular 1st-floor private ‘sleeping nook’ w/queen bed!

* For the cooler Spring or Fall evenings, fireplace and supply of dry hardwood, and Vermont Castings Cast-Iron gas-fired stove.

* L.L. Bean & Outlets in Freeport; Bowdoin College Summer Theatre, restaurants in nearby Brunswick and Bath.

we had the time of our lives at this lovely cottage and can't wait to get back.... inside was tidy and decorated in perfect rustic island style...the view was unbelievable - kayakers, lobstermen tending to their traps, heron and gulls, and the sleeping nook off the kitchen was a favorite spot to watch the stars and the ocean without ever lifting your head from the pillow....we had lobsters, fished, and took two cruises - one on the "island romance" ferry that docks right down the road at cook's and leaves every day at noon for a narrated tour of the bay; and the other to the admiral peary museum on eagle island (from the dolphin marina in harpswell) for hiking and a picnic...we found sea glass, enjoyed visiting land's end gift shop, the giant stairs, and walked from one end of the island to the other... the salty air made us feel so healthy - and hungry! we also brought our bikes and found a nice path along the river at cook's corner (the island itself can be a bit challenging for biking), about a 15-minute drive from the island... oh and did i mention the peaceful reading spot in the backyard adirondack chairs? truly a little piece of paradise and i recommend this adorable cottage wholeheartedly.

Loved Seabreeze

I recently returned from a week at the Seabreeze cottage with my 8mo daughter, 75 yr old mother and brother. We all had a great time. The weather was perfect allowing us to only use the propane stove in the early mornings to warm the place back up from the chilly nights. The sunsets over the harbor were terrific. While it wasn't the most child-proof location, my daughter loved crawling around both inside and outside, so as long as she had plenty of adult supervision, she was safe & had a blast! My mom loved the sleeping nook on the first floor.

You'll definitely want to stock up on groceries as there aren't many restaurants nearby (other than Cooks, which is pricey.) We bought lobsters off the dock at Mackerel Cove for only $2.50/lb. We used the clam/lobster pot at the cottage and steamed the lobster (& some fresh corn we'd gotten at a local farm stand) and had a great, traditional Maine dinner. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, pots & utensils.

The upstairs bedrooms are very roomy & comfortable. I loved the view from the bedrooms and had plenty of room to set up a travel crib for my daughter.
