Sunny Side, one of the great historic cottages of Bayside Village in Northport Maine was built in 1885 and was completely rebuilt in 2010. Sunny Side is a two bedroom two bath cottage with an open downstairs floor plan featuring a wrap around porch, two living areas and a large, gourmet kitchen / dining area. A 250 square foot second floor deck has lounge chairs and a table that seats six. The deck has an incredible view! Sunny Side sits perched on a bluff with views of Penobscot Bay from every room in the house. We are just a short 80 foot walk to ocean's edge. Come relax on the porch, read in a cozy nook, or kayak to your heart's content on the Bay. Sunny Side had all new beds and furniture mixed with a delightful group of antiques of the period. Downstairs bath is equipped with grab bars in the shower stall. You will love this house! Sunny Side sleeps seven in a King, a Queen, a twin, and a pull-out Queen sofa in the living room.
The Kitchen: The kitchen is an open plan and opens out to the family room, which faces the bay. There is a small dining area and a breakfast bar. Gourmet Appliances, Jen-Aire cooktop, Frigidaire side by side with icemaker and water dispenser. Dishwasher. Ceiling height in the downstairs rooms are 10 feet. There is a washer dryer in the basement, accessible through the garage.
The parlor: In the original part of the house, on the first floor is a small cozy seating area, and the stairs to the second floor all surrounding the original double doors of the house which open out onto the covered front porch. Sit outside here on graceful chairs and watch your children play in the 'square' of park that is Merithew Square. There are two beautiful maple shade trees in the front yard to keep the house cool during those August afternoons. This room is a perfect place to watch the world go by while catching up on some reading or checking your email.
The Family Room: Your back door opens into the family room, in the new addition off the rear of the house. This large room has two sets of sliding glass doors that open onto the wrap around balcony overlooking Penobscot Bay to the East and the old water pump in Merithew Square to the South. This sunny room will provide the perfect place for family togetherness as it opens onto the kitchen area. The family room is a delightful mix of antique wicker new upholstered furniture, and antiques.
We have two cottages for rent in Bayside and are locally owned and operated. We moved to Maine from Chicago about 12 years ago and found the Northport/ Belfast area by accident. Now we never want to leave! We love it here for all there is to do and see. Come experience Maine at its best!
Sunny Side is an incredible property with views of Sears Island, Islesboro and Penobscot Bay from every room in the house. When we bought Sunny Side, we could have pushed the house over by ourselves. We spent 10 months essentially building a new house inside the period shell, but it was worth it! Sunny side has good flow and excellent presence in the village.
