Sam’s house in Northport is absolutely wonderful!
We stayed for 10 days, and had a very peaceful vacation. We were able to explore Acadia, Searsport, Belfast, Lincolnville, Camden and Rockland. Much of the time we chose to stay at this unique house - kids kayaking, enjoying nature, watching the sailboats, listening to the lions at night. We loved having meals on the deck. The house had everything we need, there was plenty of room for all four of us. The area is very safe, and yet very private at the same time. If it were possible, we would love to stay another month!
Charming property in a fantastic location
Fantastic property on the shore in Maine, great little beach nearby, lots of places to visit nearby, great for our family (2 kids aged 4 and 2) would highly recommend.
Quiet Quintessential New England Home with Big Windows & Stunning Views
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. On a quiet street with big windows and stunning views of Isleboro. Just a short walk to Kelly's Cove & Bayside for easy access to swimming and sun bathing. Home had so much history & charm. Mornings spent eating breakfast overlooking the water on the outside deck, days spent playing croquet or kayaking (both provided by the owners), great kitchen with everything you need to make an epic seafood dinner, short drive to Belfast for restaurants & shops and evenings spent by the fire pit. The home & surrounding area was the best part of our 10 day trip to Maine/Boston.
Lovely cottage on the bay!
We really enjoyed our stay. We had rainy days and a few sunny but each day the view was spectacular. The house was rustic but well appointed. The kind of place you imagine a novelist settling into for a spell. It has everything you need in the kitchen, great pots for cooking up some lobster from the local pound. A very cozy living room with amazing views of the bay and a great back deck. Our kids really enjoyed hunting for crabs and skipping rocks on the beach when the tide was out, not to mention the outdoor shower. Belfast, just a short drive down the road, has a quant little downtown. We made the trip to Acadia and Bar Harbor in less than 90 minutes. We also made the trip to Lubec, eastern most point of continental US, and crossed the border into Canada. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with great sounds, smells and views just outside your window this is it.
Fantastic Waterfront Cabin
This cabin-style home had all the amenities we could hope for (including a coffee maker, microwave, washer/ dryer, wifi). One bedroom on the main level with a bathroom attached (king bed) made it easy for our guest who is not very mobile. Upstairs there's a loft queen bed and then another queen bedroom (the two upstairs bedding areas share another bathroom). The loft bed is perfect for kids/ young adults. Windows all around the house plus skylights really give you the full waterfront and natural experience. Our stay over Memorial Day weekend took good use of the indoor wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans, lobster pots, knives, wine openers, can openers and plenty of cooking utensils.
The home is about 10 minutes from town, where we were able to find Hannaford and Co-Op grocery stores with just about everything needed for a vacation. The town had cool shops and dining options on or near the water, and a short 20-30 minute drive south took us toward Camden/ Rockport and some great lobster/ clam/ seafood buying and eating options.
Back at the cabin, we made good use of the patio - enough room for 4-6+ people to sit outside on the patio, and another sitting space down near the water (with a nice fire-pit). The kayaks were easy to use, with just a short climb down the stairs to the water (about 10-15 feet of stairs to descend to the water at high tide). Great views of the bay and islands across the bay, and overall we would highly recommend this cabin/ home and location!
Beautiful location and house!
The house and land was everything we'd hoped for and will definitely book it again. It was so peaceful to sit by the firepit at night listening to the loons and the other night sounds. So hated to leave!
Bayside, while officially a part of the town of Northport, Bayside is a unique Village within a Town. Many of the quaint Victorian cottages still standing in the village today date from the late 1800s and the early 1900s.
While only a short distance from coastal Route 1 which runs the length of the state, Bayside remains a well-kept secret; a small hamlet that takes one back to a simpler, uncomplicated time. There are no shops in Bayside, but there is no shortage of things to do in and around the community. The focal point of the Village is Ruggles Park which includes the Town Pier, a small playground, basketball court, and the Northport Yacht Club. If you are lucky enough to be in town on and around the 4th of July, you’ll be able to enjoy the annual children’s activities in the park, a community band concert, and the traditional bonfire on the beach.
Lots of people come to Bayside to relax and escape the “daily grind,” but if you’re in the mood for a bit more activity, you won’t be disappointed:
* Sailing in the protected waters of Penobscot Bay is not to be missed. If you’re up for a little friendly competition, come down to the wharf on a Saturday or Sunday when the Northport Yacht Club holds their summer race series – chances are you’ll find a sailor looking for “crew.”
* Kayaking is a popular pastime, and kayaks can be rented from a near-by outfitter.
* Small public parks are located throughout the village, many of them right on the ocean. Pack a picnic lunch or just hang out and enjoy the refreshing ocean breezes.
* There’s nothing like a brisk swim in the Atlantic, and the town pier offers the ideal place to take the plunge. You can jump from the pier during high tide, or use the “swim float” or the beach for a less dramatic entry. A lifeguard is regularly on duty during the summer months.
* The Northport Golf Course, a public, 9-hole course borders the village and is within easy walking distance of most of the village. * Feel like a hike? Follow Bluff Road up Mt. Percival and then take a short hike through the woods on the Mt. Percival Preserve to the summit.
If you’re not in the mood to cook, there are numerous restaurants in Belfast, just four miles to the north, and in Lincolnville and Camden just a short drive to the south. Shopping, antiquing, museums, state parks, and Acadia National Park all make ideal half-day or day trips from Bayside.
