About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath Oceanfront Cottage with 2 pocket beaches

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.

Walk into a nautical heaven when at the Nautical Nest! The quintessential charm and decorating makes the cottage even more appealing than it already is. A newly updated and clean kitchen awaits with modern appliances and gorgeous blue quartz countertops. Cathedral ceilings in the kitchen also follow into the living area which offers a flat screen TV and gas fireplace for the nights when the ocean air gets chilly. The dining area sits in the perfect spot with windows to take in the sunsets over Mount Washington. A full size bedroom is located on the main floor off of the dining/living area. The bedroom has its own private entrance to the full bathroom with a standup shower. Feeling like you want to share your little piece of heaven? There is a full futon in the loft area for any extra guests. Enjoy the great amenities this cottage has to offer such as: laundry on site, a dock, pebbly beach, hammock and many more.

Total peace and calm!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The location cannot be beat. Sunsets every night looking straight out from the blue chairs. When you are inside the home, you feel completely surrounded by water because of the views. Morses Cribstone grill was wonderful. Perry and Bethany at Tevake charters were so awesome we went twice. A vacation here is truly breathtaking and I can't wait to go back.
