About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath (Sleeps 4)

The Rose Bluff Cottage ~ Sophisticated yet relaxed. This newly custom built home is positioned high on a bluff overlooking Penobscot Bay, this elegantly rebuilt cottage is located on Shore Road just about a mile from the center of Bayside. Views to the water can be appreciated by every room in the cottage.

As you arrive at the cottage, you are be welcomed by a 10x12 deck with outdoor seating and dining furniture with sweeping views of the bay. Entering the cottage, you walk into a very bright open floor plan with numerous windows, hardwood floors and tasteful furnishings.

The living / dining areas are open to each other with a kitchen area off to the side. A half bath is located just off the living room. A custom stone fireplace (gas) is built right into the corner wall of the living room offering cozy warmth and atmosphere to any chilly evenings on the bay. A flat screen 40' TV / DVD is mounted on the wall with Satellite cable selections.

Six large opening windows face the ocean allowing excellent views and fresh Maine air throughout the cottage.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stove/oven, dishwasher, built in microwave, large single bowl stainless sink, counter appliances and lots of storage and cabinet space. The floors are beautiful solid stone tiles and the walls have a beautiful stone back splash. The generous counters are all done in granite. The custom built dining table and antique corner hutch add the final touches to dining space.

The very large decorative wrought iron spiral stairs were locally built and lead up to the second level. The stairs are wide and easy to navigate, especially with the well lit staircase by four large two story windows during the day and excellent lighting in the evenings. A hallway on the second level leads you to the two bedrooms and full bath.

The master bedroom has a queen bed with 4 large windows offering views to the Bay. The floors are hardwood and there is a generous closet for clothing with a second closet for the washer/dryer. Ceilings are vaulted to add more space and openness to the room.

The second bedroom is smaller with two twin beds. This room also has views to the bay and ample windows for good ventilation. A good size closet is also included in this room. Wood floors complete the cottage feel of this room as well.

The upstairs bathroom has a tub/shower unit with custom tiled walls , a curved curtain rode and stone tiled floors. The bathroom is also bright and cheery with a large vanity sink.

Renters who want the open views to the water along with peace

and quiet will feel like they have found their own paradise at the Rose Bluff cottage. We believe this will be one of our most sought after cottages so don’t delay in getting your vacation planned early!!

Perfect in every way!

We have been renting vacation homes online for many years and I believe Rose Bluff is now our favorite. Charming, sparkling clean and well appointed. And the view! Waking up to the water every day was amazing. The location of the cottage is great. Tucked away in the quiet Bayside community, yet still convenient to so many wonderful mid-coast Maine areas. So glad we found this cottage. What a gem!

New and Fresh Family Friendly

The Bayside rental was beyond our expectations. The house was extremely clean and neat and upon arrival the owners and management team gave great tips on the area and use of the house. Amenities are more than adequate for a family vacation. We used the kitchen and grill extensively and could not have been happier. We will return annually for our Maine adventure. Highly recommend. Small children (under 4 or so) may be aware that there is a beautiful spiral stair case that leads up stairs which may be difficult for younger kids. Ours were 7 at the time of our stay and handled the stairs easily.

A little bit of heaven!

What a great cottage experience we had last fall. Our stay in this lovely, new, tastefully decorated, and spic and span clean property was the best vacation we have had in years. The water views are spectacular and walking on the beach searching for that elusive piece of beach glass made for a relaxing time. The cottage is equipped with everything you could want. We loved the location and took daily outings to the charming towns up and down the coast. Lots of reasonably priced restaurants nearby. If you knit, there is a terrific yarn shop in Belfast. Lots of antique shops to explore and there is even an alpaca farm nearby. We can't wait to return this Fall.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gail, We are so glad your experience at our Rose Bluff Cottage was a wonderful one. We take a lot of pride in making sure all of our rental cottages are spic and span clean. The gorgeous details put into this home's complete renovation make it just that much extra special. We will be very happy to have you back in Bayside this fall to enjoy the character of our historic Maine village as well as the Rose Bluff Cottage. Margaret

Bayside Maine is located in the town of Northport , next to Belfast , Maine. Historic Bayside is an early 19th Century Victorian Cottage community.

What Bayside offers today are glorious morning walks along the shore roads and beaches of Bayside. The nature around you is pristine, the bird life is plentiful , loons swimming well within sight, occasional seals looking for breakfast, the aroma of flowers in bloom, incredible sunsets and sunrises and the living history of this 1800's community reminding you of how life was over 100 years ago.

Come take a summer yoga class or sailing lessons,golf, kayak, read, scour for beach glass, shoot a few baskets, swing on the swingset ,

play monopoly, sleep, rest, and restore.

Bring the kids ! WE have a wonderful summer sailing program right out your cottage door.
