Bailey Island cottage description

This turn of the century cottage has been lovingly preserved and updated tastefully by our family for 4 generations. Located on Merriconeag Sound, it has easy access from the back yard to the pebbly beach where you can launch your kayak or explore the tidal pools. The wrap around porch is perfect for lounging while watching the spectacular sunsets and listening to the gulls and waves. This is a special place full of old world charm for the whole family to take a break and relax together.

                      Bailey Island is the island that time forgot. Once you drive over the only Cribstone Bridge in the world this small island will captivate you. Peaceful, quiet with a still thriving local fishing community. There are decent restaurants on the island as well as a general store and great gift/souvenir store located at the very tip of the island. The beach combing is fantastic as well as sailing, fishing and sea kayaking. The island has a very nice sandy beach perfect for children and only 30 minutes away is the popular Popham State Park Beach.

                      Locally, Brunswick has the beautiful Bowdoin College Campus which hosts the Maine Coast Live Theater each summer, local growers market every Thursday, great food, all the stores you need (yes, we have a Starbucks) and a super library. Nearby Bowdainham has great antiquing, historic Bath has a world class maritime museum, and of course, Freeport, home of LL Bean and my favorite, the Patagonia outlet, is the shopping meca of the NE

                      Other Activities: Beach combing
