What makes this Cottage unique
For people wanting to stay in a ocean-side rustic cottage, the location of the Nezinscott offers a combination of benefits: (1) Access to the beach area known as Little Harbor. (2) The property borders and overlooks Little Harbor. (3) There are sunrise to sunset ocean views from the east and west. (4) The only access to the Nezinscott Cottage is through turning off from a driveway that is private to the owners and their family. No one drives by the east, south, or west sides of the cottage. The location of the cottage is above and set back from the main road. In short, the Nezinscott Cottage is a rustic cottage located in a manner that offers beach access, ocean views, and a greater degree of both privacy and yard space than many other rental locations in this area.

Early Sept at the Nezinscott
The cottage was spacious, clean and delightful to stay in! We'll be back
Three generations of a very active family stayed at this amazing cottage. A wonderful throwback cabin style living with breathtaking views and exclusive beachfront. Thank you George and Debbie!!
Great rustic get away!
This was a nice place to unplug and relax. Lots of spaces for the whole family to spread out and enjoy the island.
Thanks for sharing your home. It was perfect for our family.
Exceeded our expectations!
My entire family fell in love with Bailey Island while staying at the Nezinscott - the coastline, the beauty, the quiet, the lobster, the Giant Stairs, ice cream at the Candy Store, and more. It was rustic enough that we weren't worried about accidentally breaking something; it was nice enough that all our needs were met. The well-equipped kitchen was put to good use. You can tell that the folks here reinvest in the place and keep it well.
This home had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing weekend stay. Stunning views and great location.
