Bailey Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms - 2 baths sleeps, sleeps 6

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!

The Maine of My Dreams

  • 5 of 5

I have wanted to see the coast of Maine since I was a kid and my friend went there to see her grandparents! It was all I expected and more. The Friendly Cottage was the PERFECT place to stay for our vacation. The homeaway description and photos were accurate except now there's even a full size dining table. The property was very clean and well stocked. I loved having a washer/dryer too. My husband and I were joined by our two grown sons, their wives and our 4 yr old grandson. There was ample room, a great kitchen (I boiled fresh lobster!!!) and a view that was breathtaking...from the bedroom and living room. We liked being near the end of the island with no visual obstructions to the bay and on to the ocean. We loved being in a community where we could visit with the local residents, watch the lobster fisherman check their traps and learn of their way of life. It's also near great places to visit. Maine Maritime Museum is a must see, we enjoyed lunch in the area general stores, it was an easy drive to Boothbay Harbor where we saw four lighthouses and less than an hour to Portland with Freeport (outlet shopping:) on the way. If I were to return to Maine I would not even consider staying anywhere else. Eric and Laurie live near, welcomed us upon arrival, gave us access to all the property and shore line (relaxing in the red chairs was nothing short of therapeutic), answered our questions about the area, and was available for anything we needed, which was nothing because it was great! Thank you Eric and Laurie! I've already recommended your cottage to several friends who are now considering a Maine vacation.

Peace by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

We had one of our most 'peaceful' and restful vacations ever at the beautiful "Friendly Cottage". It was very clean and well equipped for all our needs. The kitchen is all new and perfectly organized- making it a pleasure to work in. The view of the ocean is spectacular from the many windows in the house. The owners, Eric and Laurie Smith are wonderful people and are available for any help required. There are great lobster restaurants in walking distance and it's easy to order and pick up cooked lobsters and seafood down the road two minutes away. Bailey Island is truly a special place to visit and this is an especially lovely house rental!

Great house for a relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

Best location and very comfortable house with terrific views of water and islands. Easy walk to a nice beach and several places for fresh seafood and chowder. The Smith's are a lovely couple that did everything to make our stay a wonderful vacation.

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Bailey island was spectacular. We stayed with Laurie and Eric last year for a shorter stay in their smaller rental. That was very comfortable, clean (like new) with a great view. We decided to return this year, 2016 and stay in Friendly Cottage. There are beautiful views from every window, large wonderfully decorated spacious rooms. Everything you need is there. We have actually booked our 2017 vacation for next year. We can't wait to return to Bailey Island, the untouched gem of a place to vacation.

Friendly Cottage-by-the-Sea

  • 5 of 5

I cant imagine a better property to provide a uniquely genuine Maine-by-the-sea experience. Friendly Cottage is high end construction, appointment and amenities. Everything you would need to feel at home is provided which in itself would be enough but the location is superb. The ocean is a couple of yards away and my grandson and I became experts in collecting (and trading) sea glass. Beach, restaurants, small market, post office, gift shops, kayak launch, lobster rolls are all within a short distance (some within walking) and there is really no reason to leave the sanctuary of Friendly Cottage and Bailey Island.

The property was clean and well maintained. The owners Eric and Laurie Smith were on sight and made you feel like a most welcomed guest.

We have already made are reservations to return next summer!

Immaculate and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Friendly Cottage is that and more. It is a beautifully designed and constructed cottage. It is very clean and bright. It looks and feels brand new. The interior design is artistically appointed with first rate appliances. Eric and Laurie Smith took great strides to make this feel like a home away from home. The landscape is bright and cheery. A lot of care has gone into making our week in Maine the most comfortable and relaxing. Eric and Laurie, along with their wonderful children, live on the property which makes it very convenient if you have any questions, yet, they are so unobtrusive you rarely see them. A real plus for me was the access to Lexie, their horse who loves to have you bring her treats in the morning and evening. She is a sweetheart. I spent a week here with my sister and we can't say enough good things about our experience.
