About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms(Sleeps 6)

Bayberry Ledge- expansive 240 degree ocean view. The house sits on a point of land with an expansive view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Seguin Light House, plus a view of the Sheepscot River to the west and the charming Little Christmas Cove to the East. Some locals remark that this is the most spectacular view on the Island. Sits close to the rocks that gently slope to the ocean. The view, closeness to the ocean and private location situated on a point of land are breathtaking. A large lawn with groups of adirondack chairs.

Bayberry Ledge is a classic Maine cottage built in 1912. We are only the third owners.

First Floor- wrap around enclosed porch facing the ocean. Family/sitting area/dining area with large stone fireplace. Fully equipped kitchen. Half bath.

Second Floor- Three bedrooms with attractive and colorful hand sewn curtains. Large full bath. First- queen size bed with oceanfront views. Second- two twin beds with oceanfront views. Third- two twin beds with western ocean view.

We have made Bayberry Ledge available for rent since 1980 and some of our rental families have returned for over 30 years.

Keywords: Spectacular ocean views. House sits very close to the ocean so the sound of the waves is ever present.
