From the great room, a large colorful kitchen has everything a cook could need and more, including a brand new microwave, toaster, dishwasher, lobster pot, combination Keurig style/drip coffeemaker, espresso maker, stainless steel pots and cast iron pans, electric range and full refrigerator. The kitchen has the original beadboard cupboards and open shelving but been updated with fresh painted floors and new cabinets and countertops. Sit and sip your coffee while you gaze out the kitchen window at the ocean.
The brand new bathroom has ship lathe wooden walls, black and white ceramic mosaic tile, subway tile shower and a vintage style Groeh showerhead and hand spray hose. The brand new toilet and pedestal sink are also vintage style. Ample shelf space and storage space is provided for toiletries and towels. There is a small storage area/mud room adjacent to the bathroom which opens to the west facing back deck, and provides easy access to your car. Electric heat is provided for those chilly evenings.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We love the rocky coast of Maine and fell in love with the unhurried, simple lifestyle on the undeveloped coast of Bailey Island. This cottage has it all. We have carefully updated the cottage in a tasteful, simple manner, reusing the vintage wood from an upstairs cistern to create the beautiful farm table and coffee table in the downstairs Great Room. We have preserved all the unique details, yet made the cottage workable for today's guests. We hope you enjoy your time at the cottage and enjoy the unique setting and special surprise features of the cottage. We plan to retire and spend our summers at the Sea Salt Cottage in Maine.
Why the Owner Chose Bailey Island, Harpswell, ME, USA:
The vintage cottage with it's incredible ocean view and location next to the preserved land of the Giant Stairs was irresistible to us. We love restoring vintage homes and have restored this home to it's simple elegance, yet updated it enough to feel away from it all without compromising the comforts of 21st century living.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage is unique, has a rich history, and has been preserved in a condition that is simple but grand. Combine that with the sound of the crashing waves, and the constant ocean breezes and the amazing oceanview and endless night stars, and we decided to make it our own. When researching the history of Bailey Island, there was another seaside cottage built at about the same time, the 'Tekitisi' - for Take it Easy. This is exactly how we felt when we were in the Sea Salt cottage. We hope you will feel the same way too. Come to the Sea Salt to 'Tekitisi' on Bailey Island, Maine!
