About the property

Newly Constructed Friendly Cottage on Oceanside, Bailey Island is now available for your seaside vacation, no matter the season. This well-insulated cottage, heated and cooled by solar and geothermal systems, 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.

Friendly cottage is on the east side of the island with an unhindered view of Casco Bay and spectacular sunrises, and sits on a secluded beach at the dead end of a quiet neighborhood.

Yet, the cottage is in walking distance of the general store, post office, a non-denominational church, several local eateries including the famous Cook's Lobster House as well as Mackerel Cove, the hub of the fishing and boating community. Entertaining and socializing has a comfortable flow in this 3 bedroom-2 bathroom home - perfect for family get-togethers, reunions, special events or simply a nest to enjoy the Maine experience.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 near net zero energy efficient home.Friendly Cottage is a excellent example of a home built with many innovative technologies including solar hot water panels, geothermal and photovoltaic power just to name a few .If you are considering building an energy efficient home with all or some of these technologies, come for a stay!

A comfy cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Bailey Island for a few years because we love the peacefulness, but this is the first time we stayed in a cottage and Friendly Cottage was just a great place to stay. The cottage is clean, spacious, and the kitchen is well-equipped. The open floor-plan easily accommodated our party of six adults and two babies. But perhaps best of all is the location which affords a grassy patch of land facing Casco Bay. The four adirondack chairs on the point provide a relaxing location from which to enjoy the view. We love this place!

What a perfect house in a perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more delighted by Friendly Cottage. It's so comfortable, beautifully designed, and the situation is gorgeous. Our hosts were available but unobtrusive and the area was perfect. We had a wonderful, restful time. Thank you!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and well equipped with spectacular views. The location allows you to be able to venture out on day trips and come back to the relaxing atmosphere that Bailey Island offers. There are many great places to eat or to buy lobsters to cook yourself. We would definitely stay here again!

Just what the pictures describe!!! Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

we as a family with our 2 boys ages 5 and 7. choose this because of location and a low allergy built cottage .was well worth it , very clean !! I am a very sensitive individual and did not have an issues.we had a few special requests and questions. Eric and Laura responded to them. We got to chat with them individually. They made us feel at home. Thank you for that. A few things we did is go to Portland and take a boat tour and saw lighthouses and old forts, the tour guide did well with the history.did a little bit of shopping and toured the llbean the shops there.we did go to Cook's Lobster for dinner it was good on our behalf .some reviews did not like it. Most of our time we collected sea shells and sea glass and sat on the chairs by the front of there home which was very generous. The cottage sits to the back side of there home with ocean view.we had a very nice vacation in Maine at Smiths "Friendly cottage". And hopefully we get to go again!!! Thank you for sharing your cottage!
