Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

"Vartakooin Doone" (which means 'The Pink House' in Armenian) was built in 1890. It is one of dozens of very pretty little cottages in the village of Bayside, with fine views across Penobscot Bay.

The cottage is bright, filled with light and full of charm, with antique furniture, local artists' paintings, a lovely porch and a delightful deck off the main bedroom.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped: a beautifully restored 1960s stove/oven, a microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer. Olive oil, salt, pepper, spices and other condiments are available for your use.

Please note the sleeping arrangements: two bedrooms with full/double beds and one bedroom with a single/twin bed.

Outside there's a small grassy yard, a unique rock garden and a gas grill.

Bayside village started as a religious camp in the 1800s and gradually grew into a beautiful little village of gingerbread cottages. It's the sort of place where families come back year after year. Friendships are forged and renewed every summer.

There are no businesses in the village itself. Social life revolves around porches, the parks, the dock and the Yacht Club, which must be the humblest, most laid-back yacht club on the eastern seaboard.

The cottage is fully winterized and is available for rent all year round. Winter in Bayside is peaceful and beautiful!

Relaxing stay at Bayside, ME

  • 5 of 5

The owner (Andrew) is to be complimented on accurately presenting this cottage--very near the sea (Penobscot Bay) in Bayside, Northport, ME. It was indeed cozy and charming, with a lot of character; it featured comfortable beds, plenty of towels, a well-equipped kitchen, and some nice "extras" (small upstairs sun deck, with good views; excellent collection of paperbacks, etc.). Bayside is a lovely little colony of ginger-breadish cottages. In late June it was extremely quiet (and the water was extremely cold). We would strongly recommend this rental.

Nice village location, well maintained, clean, adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Cottage had everything we needed for a successful stay. Cottage was clean, nicely decorated, well-maintained. Owners were very accommodating and easy to communicate with if we needed anything or had any questions. We really didn't though since thing like Internet and trash pick up were all spelled out. Great location! Wonderful place! We had a great time! Thank you!

Charming seaside getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have had many visits to the central coast of Maine over the past 30 years, but this was our first visit to Bayside. We enjoyed our stay at Vartakooin Doone. The cottage decor was fresh and charming with many artistic accents. Overall, the cottage was well maintained and clean. The bathrooms were especially immaculate, our bed was comfortable, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Overall, we were very pleased and would love to visit again.
