About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom oceanfront cottage

Picture your first day on your Bailey Island vacation.......

Sleep in and rise to the sound of sea gulls catching their breakfast as lobster boats head out of Mackerel Cove.

Take your coffee and newspaper out to your adirondack chair perched above your own pebble or sand beach 20 steps below. Thinking about your day, you walk down the rocks to the beach below. After skimming a few rocks, looking for sea glass and wading in the tidal pools, you decide on the perfect balance for the rest of the day.

Maybe you will fish or swim from the dock or rent a kayak to explore the island. Perhaps you will relax and bring your new summer read and picnic lunch down to the beach at noon. In the afternoon you will take a walk over to the east side cliffs and the 'Giant Stairs' formation and watch the crashing surf. After that you may bike to Orrs Island to look at gardens and get an ice cream.

In the evening you will watch the spectacular sunset over Mt. Washington--75 miles to the west while sipping a favorite cocktail and taking pictures. Later you'll enjoy a candlelit dinner in your nautically decorated 'Martha Stewart' style cottage or head to one of the four local island restaurants. As you lay your head down on your pillow your first night of vacation to the sounds and smells of the nearby ocean, you begin to dream about the rest of your week in this little spot of heaven.

You ask yourself, 'will I take a boat cruise with Casco Bay Lines from Cook's Lobster House or walk down to Land's End Gift Shop 1/3 of a mile away?? Shall I head to Brunswick to a fine restaurant and take in a musical at the Maine State Music Theater? Shall I shop at L.L.Bean and the outlets in Freeport if it rains? Shall we invite friends when we cook our complimentary lobsters or savor them all ourselves? As active or as quiet and relaxing as you want to be, you know your vacation on the coast of Maine will be special and memorable for years to come.

Take in Maine's coast in this tastefully decorated updated cottage at waters edge. Enjoy the convenience of having everything on the main floor! The kitchen is well acquainted with new appliances and quartz countertop. The open concept floor plan allows everyone to enjoy each others company whether they are cooking, playing board games at the kitchen table, watching cable TV on your flat screened TV, or watch the tide go in and out in the new living room furniture. The main floor queen bedroom has a nice size closet for all your luggage and offers it's own entrance to the full bathroom with double sinks and a stand up shower only. For any extra guests there is a full size futon in the loft area that is only accessible by the ship lap style stairs. There is a shared laundry room on the property for this cottage and two others. Come and take advantage of such a great home!

Immaculate, beautiful view and sunsets & more

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two-week vacation staying in Sea Scent on Bailey Island. The house was immaculate, and it was ready and waiting for us upon our arrival. The owner and manager could not have been nicer making sure we had everything. We are planning to return here again in 2018 for another memorable vacation.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Scent. The house was perfect in every way and we didn't need anything we could not find. Your Island Connection managed the stay perfectly, were very organized and made us feel welcome in many ways. We will definitely be back as soon as we can and look forward to working with everyone then. What a great experience.
