Recent Bailey Island reviews

  • A vacation we soon won't forget

    "What a wonderful stay our family had at the De Hart cottage on Bailey Island. If you haven’t experienced staying at an authentic Maine oceanfront cottage, you’re missing out. This cottage is in an ideal elevated location with spectacular easterly ocean views. The sunrises and moonrises were unforgettable and the large yard with outdoor patio and fireplace was perfect for cooking up yummy lobster dinners. We were so impressed with the sights and sounds from the front porch and most every room in the house. The owner’s efforts to assure our stay was easy and pleasant were much appreciated. Thank you to the De Hart family for sharing your cottage with us so our family could create our own special Bailey Island memories."

  • Great Place For A Getaway!

    "Very clean cottage with all the amenities of home! The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking and baking and the pantry is well-stocked with paper products, household necessities and extra blankets. There are extra pillows in the bedroom and 2 closets with hangers. The cottage literature is up to date and offers a wide range of things to see and do. Access to a semi-private beach is just down the road! The proprietor was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay!"

  • The Maine of My Dreams

    "I have wanted to see the coast of Maine since I was a kid and my friend went there to see her grandparents! It was all I expected and more. The Friendly Cottage was the PERFECT place to stay for our vacation. The homeaway description and photos were accurate except now there's even a full size dining table. The property was very clean and well stocked. I loved having a washer/dryer too. My husband and I were joined by our two grown sons, their wives and our 4 yr old grandson. There was ample room, a great kitchen (I boiled fresh lobster!!!) and a view that was breathtaking...from the bedroom and living room. We liked being near the end of the island with no visual obstructions to the bay and on to the ocean. We loved being in a community where we could visit with the local residents, watch the lobster fisherman check their traps and learn of their way of life. It's also near great places to visit. Maine Maritime Museum is a must see, we enjoyed lunch in the area general stores, it was an easy drive to Boothbay Harbor where we saw four lighthouses and less than an hour to Portland with Freeport (outlet shopping:) on the way. If I were to return to Maine I would not even consider staying anywhere else. Eric and Laurie live near, welcomed us upon arrival, gave us access to all the property and shore line (relaxing in the red chairs was nothing short of therapeutic), answered our questions about the area, and was available for anything we needed, which was nothing because it was great! Thank you Eric and Laurie! I've already recommended your cottage to several friends who are now considering a Maine vacation."

  • Already planning to go back!

    "My family started talking about going back to the Homestead before our vacation was over! Our 8 y.o. twins loved playing on the huge protected beach with such variation of high and low tide and a short run from the house (digging, hermit crabbing, swimming). The sunsets were DIVINE (and I'll admit, we didn't make it up in time to see the sunrises, which I hear are great too!). The house is well stocked in the kitchen and accomodations and very comfortable. The location is quiet and relaxing, and you can easily get to nearby attractions if you are looking for more activity to occupy your time. The Johnson family is super friendly and helpful, you will definitely feel "at home" in their home at the Homestead. Looking forward to booking 2017 soon!"
