Quaint beach cottage
This small, two story, no frills cottage is one street from the ocean, has a nice view of the water from the back deck (perfect for breakfast), and has a very short walk to the coastline where you can find lots of treasures. The kitchen was equipped with every possible pot and utensil and the beds were comfy. Though there were just two of us, the two bedrooms on the first level would provide plenty of room for a small family. There was always a pleasant breeze drifting through the cottage. An added bonus was the short walk to Cedar Beach (sandy) which is accessible to only those who own nearby homes or their renters/guests. There is no parking permitted on Cedar Beach Rd, so the beach goers are only those who can walk. It was lovely, with plenty of shells, and at low tide you could wade all the way out to Cedar Island where you could explore the tidal pools. There are beach monitors who confirm your identity...they are very pleasant. We totally enjoyed our stay!
Rustic is an understatement
The house was super hot during the day and super cold during the night. I arrived and had to put my own fan together. After that nats covered my bed. The next night the nats were less but there were ants and spiders. The bedsrooms downstairs are next to the water system which makes a loud processing noise at 2 or 3 in the morning.
Best part of the hum is the spacious outdoor deck! We spent most of our time there!
Thank you Kerry! We do love the sunrises from that deck as well. Hope to see you back soon!
Perfect house, perfect location, perfect weather!
Our week at The Blue Heron Cottage was perfect! The weather was divine in June! We escapes 99 degree days in Savannah, GA to enjoy low temps in the mid-fifties and highs in the mid- sixties. The cottage is wonderfully dog-friendly (though Cedar Beach is NOT). The proprietor of B.I.G.S. gave us some tips for where our pup would be most welcome. BTW, the pancakes at B.I.G.S. are spectacular (ask for blueberries)! The food and service at Morse's (an easy walk from the cottage is terrific and the services great, too.
We took several easy day trips to Georgetown/Five Islands, Wiscasset (Red's Eats is a MUST) to Boothbay/Boothbay Harbor (Bet's Fish Fry was a culinary high point, even for my wife who likes her fish broiled) and Rockland (The Farnsworth Museum has a terrific Wyeth exhibition)> But most days we hunkered down on Bailey island, walking, some light hiking and lounging in the cottage.
Bailey Island was perfect for us! The Blue Heron Cottage reminded us of an old beach house on the SC coast where we'd stayed regularly across 30 plus years. While it was perfect for the two of us, two couples might find it too intimate; having said that, there's nothing I would have changed about our experience. Clean, well appointed (the bed was great!) and perfectly located, we'll be back! Thanks to HomeAaway and Your Island Connection!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here on our Island. We hope to see you again.
