Bayside Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 (max of 5 adults)

Next door to Belfast (4 miles away), 'Bayside' is a kids paradise! This lovely, restored gingerbread cottage is located on the Ruggles Park facing southeast. The house looks at the docks, the beach, the vast lawn, the 'yacht club', and the playground. Watch the world from rocking chairs on the front porch. If you have a boat, there are deep water guest moorings available, and you're a short row from the dock and your front door. The cottage was recently completely renovated and has marvelous bathrooms, a state of the art kitchen, and comfortable chairs and couch for lounging in the living room. Games and books galore for rainy days. The master bedroom looks over the harbor, and has a queen bed. There is a small guest room with a single bed and trundle and a back bedroom with twin beds. There is a full bath with tub/shower upstairs and a full bath with shower downstairs. Kids love Bayside because there are always plenty of things going on. Do you want to take sailing lessons?

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage, so comfortable and welcoming! The interior was beautifully updated. The view from the master bedroom incredible. Our first visit to Maine and it won't be our last.

Laura was great to deal with.

My family enjoyed Bayside laid back living, with a sunny porch looking out on the park and wharf. It is decorated lovely inside, not rustic, so you're aware with children to maintain care of the decor and keep them eating at the table or outside. I enjoyed the decor, beauty and location.

Perfect Maine-stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautiful. It is clean and well appointed. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with all the basics including dishes, pots & pans, flatware, spices and condiments. It is beautifully decorated inside and out. The beds are comfortable and the view from the master bedroom is surpassed only by enjoying the same view on the front covered porch. The village is charming and the mid-coast location offers so many day-trip opportunities, including Camden & Acadia National Park. Couldn't get any better than this. I'm sure I will stay here again. I highly recommend this cottage.

Next door to Belfast (4 miles away), where exciting things are happening! Bayside is an area with charming Victorian gingerbread houses - famous for its unique architectural features. This is a kids oriented place where families have been coming back together for summers for generations. Swim, sail, sunbathe, shop or just snooze on the front porch. This house has two sea kayaks and two bicycles for the use of guests. If you are antsy, explore the many attractions of Maine, starting with downtown Belfast which is experiencing a bit of a renaissance and has many new restaurants and shops.
