Bailey Island cottage description

Built in the 19th century by a fisherman, this charming home overlooks one of the most photographed coves in Maine. In the heart of a small town, you can:

* Watch the lobster boats coming and going all day long
* Have cocktails on the deck overlooking Mackerel cove, Lowell cove and Merriconeag Sound while the sunset casts its glow on the water
* Enjoy a chowder supper at the village church down the street
* Shop for local art at the art show across the street in Library Hall
* Walk down to the dock to pick your own lobsters
* Walk to the ocean and watch the crashing surf
* Pick blueberries, raspberries or rhubarb from your own backyard
* Cut flowers from the gardens frequently painted by local artists

The house is cozy but free-flowing, so you will never get cabin fever, but Brunswick and Bath are nearby should you develop a yen for 'city life,' and Freeport - with all its discount shops- is only a half hour away.

This property is featured in 'Discover Harpswell;' the Harpswell Business Association publication highlighting Harpswell's attractions.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About: Owners are Ann and Marty Mitchell and Leeann and Tom Leahy. Leeann is Ann and Marty's daughter. The Leahys have 3 children who all love Bailey Island. They are Mac (12), Winnie (9) and Duncan (6).

                      Why Bailey Island:
                      We discovered Bailey Island when our younger daughter, Maggy, was a student at Bowdoin. We rented a wonderful house overlooking Little Harbor for several years. We can hardly believe how lucky we are to have had the opportunity to buy this wonderful house on Mackerel Cove. The house was formerly owned by the owner of the General Store, Phil Johnson, who lived there with his sister. She was the one initially responsible for the beautiful gardens which we have inherited.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Walking down to the cove to buy lobsters. Working in the garden and breathing in the ocean air. Sitting in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the cove and reading a good book. Walking to the little beach at Lowell Cove for a swim. Cocktail hour on the deck overlooking both coves and the sound.
