About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath with washer-dryer, sleep 6

Ocean Breeze Cottage on Bailey Island is now available for your seaside vacation, no matter the season. This well-insulated cottage, heated by geothermal system, 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. Ocean Breeze cottage is on the east side of the island with an unhindered view of Casco Bay and spectacular sunrises, and just steps away from a secluded beach at the end of Oceanside Road in a quiet neighborhood.

Yet, the cottage is walking distance of the Bailey Island General store, the post office, a non-denominational church, several local eateries including the famous Cook's Lobster House, and Mackerel Cove; the hub of the fishing and boating community, Entertaining and socializing has a comfortable flow in this 2 bedroom-1 bathroom home - perfect for family get-togethers, reunions, special events or simply a nest to enjoy the Maine experience. For larger groups we also rent Friendly Cottage on the same property. (# 962008).

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 energy efficient home. Ocean Breeze Cottage is entirely on the second floor with its own private entrance and stairway. There are unobstructed views of the ocean from the private corner deck facing east and south. The lower level of the building is used primarily for storage and has its own entrance.

The property is picturesque and the cottage is charming. Laurie and Eric are friendly and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The upstairs cottage provided excellent views of the water from the windows and deck. The cottage is cheerful and full of light. We had all we needed to make our 4 day stay a pleasure. We took Eric's advice and picked up groceries in Brunswick on our way in to the island.

We walked to Land's End and saw the lupines along the way. We walked to the Giant Steps and witnessed spectacular rock formations and crashing of the waves. We walked to the Bailey Island General Store for a few items. And we walked next door to the Giant Steps Grille. Delicious haddock sandwich and lobster roll.

We also walked to Cook's for lobster and to board the Alert for a 2 hour afternoon sail. Very enjoyable.

We loved the quietness of Laurie and Eric's place and the fact that we were able to walk to places we wanted to see.

I want Laurie to come decorate my home!

Beautiful rocky coastline and quality accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

The coastline was the main draw here and didn't disappoint. Lots of areas to explore or just sit on the lawn and take it in. A couple of beaches within walking distance offer sandy beach. Great hosts that were very responsive and unobtrusive. Would definitely stay again!

Lovely accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are spacious, comfortable and complete with pretty much anything you will need for a comfortable stay. The ocean is just steps away across a lawn, and can be heard from the apartment. The weather was quite cooperative for us, and we explored the islands at leisure by foot and by car. Very relaxing -- and just what we needed!

Beautiful property, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in early August. The view was stunning, the place was quiet and very clean, and there is a horse in the yard (Lexi likes carrots - go to Bailey's Island General Store and ask for carrots). Internet is available, though I didn't use it. There really isn't a "beach" on the property - it is rocky and seaweed-strewn, so expect to go elsewhere for swimming. A word of warning: to get to the bathroom, you have to go through one of the bedrooms. It was just us, so not a problem, but if you are going with friends it is something to keep in mind. Eric and his family were very responsive and hospitable. We loved our stay and wish we were able to stay longer.
