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.

Very relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully located with ocean views from both bedrooms and the living room. It was very spacious and we didn’t feel cramped at all. Eric and his wife were great hosts and very accommodating. We only saw them once during our stay but they were available if there was a need. We stayed during Thanksgiving weekend and the house was always warm. The bathroom being in one of the bedrooms wasn’t an issue for us. We got to walk the Giant Steps, shopped at Land’s End gift shop with gorgeous views, went around the Mackerel Cove and over the bridge to catch the beautiful sunset. If you’re looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation, this definitely is the place!!!

Cottage really is on the ocean! Stunning view from deck and windows

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted warmly by Eric, the owner, shortly after we arrived and had walked across the lawn to the ocean front of his property. He made us feel welcome to use the chairs and enjoy the ocean view from his yard as often as we wished. His wife, Laurie, also made us feel so welcome. The cottage was spacious, light filled and immaculate. The bathroom situation as mentioned by other reviewers was not a problem for us either, as we are family. We loved its location on Bailey Island. The island is quiet, scenic and within walking distance of the Giant Steps, general store, Mackeral Cove, etc. The coastline is stunning here! The location was also perfect for day trips to all the towns we wanted to visit; Brunswick, Bath, Freeport. Would definitely stay here again!

Tranquil Setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed the tranquility of Ocean Breeze for a week in August. The rental was spotless and extremely comfortable. There are many good spots in the spacious living room to sit and read a book or watch the television. We did a lot of the latter due to the approach of Hurricane Harvey. Since we are Texans, we were very concerned about our state and our fellow Texans. That aside, we loved the views afforded of Casco Bay from our cottage. Ocean Breeze is one of three properties on the grounds, but we felt that we had all the privacy we needed. The Adirondack chairs by the water and the chairs on the deck provide two great places to sit and enjoy the view of the ocean. My husband found places to hike in the area and we found great places to eat. If you stay here, don't miss Erica's Seafood near the Dolphin Marina. We ate there three times for dinner. The lobster is beyond reasonable and the sides are delicious. It is BYOB so remember to bring your beverage of choice. We ate at Morse's Cribstone Grill twice and liked that as well. We would definitely like to return to this beautiful cottage by the sea.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this very positive review. We are so glad you had a comfortable stay and hope you will be returning soon. We keep all of you in Texas in our thoughts as those hit by the hurricane begin to rebuild and heal.

The views and accommodations were incredible!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Ocean Breeze Cottage. It was exceptionally clean and had all the necessary amenities. The very short walk to the Ocean was the best part and the sunrises were memories we will never forget. We will definitely return to stay again. I highly recommend this cottage for a getaway weekend or a little meet stay.

Comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at several places on Bailey Island over the past few years, and this place was among the top two. Beautiful location and a nice clean location. One caveat to consider is the location of the bathroom, which is only accessed through the master bedroom. It ended up not being an issue for us, but it may be for some.
