Bailey Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Fabulous view of the sea, very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house is even better than it looks in the pictures, i.e the living room is more spacious and the ocean view closer. My husband and I spent a week in this lovely house, one of our most relaxing vacations in part because we were content to stay home and look at the ocean. From my first contact with eric smith he was flexible and accomodating, clearly this is a well loved property. The gardens, which aar maintained by his wife, are spectacular.

I would certainly recommend this house to everyone coming to Maine.
