Bailey Island is the last in a series of picturesque islands connected to the mainland by three bridges, the last of which is the famous 'Cribstone Bridge'. It is about a twenty minute drive down Rte 24 from Cooks Corner in Brunswick. People considering staying on Bailey Island, but unfamiliar with the area may wish to note the following:There are grocery stores, shopping malls, a cinema, major chain and numerous local restaurants /retail outlets, fitness centers, medical facilities (including two hospitals), golf courses, Bowdoin College, Bath Maritime Museum, and, and other attractions within a half hour drive in the Brunswick/Topsham/Bath area.

Freeport, the home to LLBean, is a 45 minute drive while Portland is about a one hour drive away.

While you may just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of Bailey Island, the region offers a variety of sights, activities, and resources for our guests.

Other Activities: kayaking
