Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent a delightful, relaxing week in this home. The home is quite spacious, very clean, and with great views. Having been here a few times before we had already been to many of the sites. Most of our time was spent relaxing, walking, and kayaking. A real bonus is the small private beach that is shared with just a few other homes. We love the charm of Bailey Island and this fabulous home. We will return and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others. I would definitely recommend the Salt Cod Cafe for lobster rolls and baked goods, Morses Cribstone Grill for lobsters to go, and the Dolphin Marina & Restaurant in Harpswell for a fine meal. They are known for their fish chowder and blueberry muffins. There are other fine places but these are our favorite three.

Wonderful and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location and house, and actually able to fit the number of people it says it can, not only in beds but also in living space. Great view of the water, easy to walk to the beach and spend time on the beach as well. House is in good location to get to good hikes at Giant Stairs and Devil's Back and to beaches. The house has all the right supplies for cooking and living for a few days. It's a little challenging with only 1 full bathroom, but it's vacation, so we made it work. Great to have dishwasher and laundry and dryer in the house. Bringing sheets and towels was a challenge,but we were lucky to have locals with us so didn't have to fly to Maine with sheets and towels. This is the only suggestion I would make is for the house to actually offer sheets and towels.

Wonderful cabin for family multiples!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay with two sets of in-laws, and their children, and their tiny grandchild! This cabin has two living areas, one on each floor, to give sets of families little spaces to tuck away and hang out. We found this especially wonderful when our 18 month old would go to bed downstairs in the bedroom, and all of the adults retreated upstairs to hang out and stay up later but reduce noise from waking up the baby! The views are spectacular, and the small set of stairs down to the tiny beach was just perfect for sipping drinks and dipping in the chilly water! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was updated and just right for cooking several meals in, and also a great location for walking to the couple restaurants that are so great to visit on Bailey Island. I don't think I could have found a better location, and the property managers were absolutely wonderful! It was so lovely, we'll be coming back to this cabin for our bi-annual "reunions"!

Wonderful house in the best location!

  • 5 of 5

If you're debating on what house to rent in Maine...stop, this is it. We were 6 adults on vacation from NYC and this fit our needs perfectly. The house is huge! and has everything you could hope for. The porches alone are worth the stay, but you can also grab the deck chairs and sit by the ocean which is right there!!! We loved the back patio with the big picnic table with a grill. I have nothing but good things to say about this place and Jane who was lovely to work with and answered all my questions.

Bailey island is so cute and quaint and if you do stay here I recommend all things baked from the Salt Cod Cafe which is just 3 min down the road. A blueberry muffin with butter and a cup of coffee sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean is euphoric.

Mom, two daughters, grandaughter, two little high energy boys!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bailey Island and we could not have found a better place. The house was cozy and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us. The kids loved the upstairs room with the futon and TV, and there were plenty of games and puzzles to do. The views are fantastic! I loved the upstairs porch with the settee and waking up to the sound of the ocean and the gulls flying around the lobster boats. The kitchen had everything we needed except a grill for pancakes. Also, a clothes line or more hooks for wet suits and towels would be great.

The island itself is lovely and quiet but there is plenty to do and see. We hiked the Devils Back with the kids and my 87 year old mother. Perfect hike on a perfect day! The beach in front of the house is a great spot to sit or collect sea glass. The swimming was wonderful at either tide, but incoming was the most fun with the waves. Boogy boards recommended for even more fun! The front lawn was great for the kids to play games on, and the tree provides enough shade when you need a break from the sun but still want to be near the water.

Thank you to our hosts, Jane and Paul, for helping us get settled in the house and for being two of the nicest people I have met. Hope to see you again next year!

Owner's Response: We loved having you here - you're the first 4 generational family that we have hosted! Thank you for the glowing review!! And the little issues you mentioned will be resolved by the time you return next year - hopefully... Only thing we can guarantee is that the tide will come in and out!

Wonderful experience on Bailey Island

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a quiet area on what feels like a safe family oriented neighborhood. The walk from the porch to the beach was exactly what someone sick of the Cape Cod pack-the-car each day experience needed to really relax. The water was refreshing and clear as can be. The tidal pools were great for the kids. The house has a great layout for a family. I would recommend the house to anyone.
