Bailey Island cottage description

Enjoy all three seasons, Spring Summer and the quiet of Fall. Central heat and fireplace will keep you toasty in this traditional 1891shingle-style cottage sitting on a bluff with ocean views from every room. This will make you feel like you are stepping back in time to the way things used to be.

Sleep with the sound of the surf. Wake up to the sunrise and enjoy breakfast on the large front porch. Nothing to see but water, islands and boats, both working and sail. Back for the night, cook up some lobster from local fisherman, enjoy the meal in the fully appointed dining room (lobster bibs included) enjoy the sunset over Mt Washington and come in from the cool night air to read by the fire in the fireplace. Enjoy games of scrabble or cards, enjoy the challenge of a jigsaw puzzle. Then back to bed to the sound of the surf. It's a good day on Bailey Island.
