Bailey Island cottage description

Internet access only June to October. Step back into the 1870's in this interesting, five generations owned, family homestead. Enjoy glistening floors and woodwork, original kitchen cupboards and appropriately decorated rooms. Imagine yourself living in yester-year. It is a truly unique experience. Climb the narrow stairs to two small but very cozy bedrooms with one double bed, one single. Views of the bay, spectacular sunsets and New Hampshire's Mt. Washington are offered, weather permitting. Stroll the gardens while listening to the many varieties of song birds. Relax on the covered piazza, listen to the sea and take in the salt breezes while watching boats come and go. Linens and towels provided, as well as filtered water, coffee maker, toaster, microhood, stove, refrigerator, utensils, dishes, kettles and tableware. Living room: love seat, sofa, rocker, TV and radio. Gas grill, piazza w/furniture, clothes washer & dryer are provided. No smoking/ No pets.

This home is hot water heated and insulated for cool weather. Relax in this peaceful setting. Spend a quiet holiday, explore the area or leaf peep. Note: This is a duplex home, but only one side is rented at a time for privacy.
