Description of the Bayside vacation cottage rental
More than a cottage, this year round home was designed and renovated by a local architect giving it many lovely features that make it a wonderful vacation nest. Located just a minute's walk to the waterfront , Ruggles park and golf course this cottage has a larger than average Bayside yard, parking and a very comfortable feel. Croquet anyone?

As you enter the home via the front door, a small hallway for coats, shoes & lifejackets, opens up to a the bright, modern, eat in kitchen. Cabinets are plentiful and are complimented by the warm wood floor. Tall windows bring in morning and afternoon light.

Through the central hallway is a large bath with clawfoot tub / shower and lots of storage. The hallway leads to a large comfortable living room (including fold out double) with windows on three sides, perfect for lounging and entertaining. Several bookshelves loaded with good reading material . Going through the French doors in the living room a huge wrap around porch opens up to the large yard with comfortable chairs for dining, entertaining or reading.

Heading upstairs this cottage has a large master queen bedroom with wood floors, skylight window and two large windows. There are nice furnishings and loads of storage space for an extended stay. A hallway provides more storage with a washer / dryer just outside the master bedroom. A story book bedroom with steeply pitched ceilings has two twin futon mattresses and provides a cozy space for children.

This cottage is perfect for the small family looking for all of the antique charm Bayside has to offer but within a modern, clean and attractively furnished home just a short walk to the water.

Amenities include: tv/vcr, charcoal grill, phone, washer/dryer, heat, large wrap around porch

Area Information
Bayside village in the town of Northport, Maine is beautifully located right on Penobscot Bay in the heart of Mid-Coast Maine with the historic waterfront towns of Camden just 15-20 minutes to the south and Belfast just 5 minutes to the north. Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor are just an hour 15 min. north and equally distanced to the south is Boothbay Harbor. Rockport, Rockland and Owls Head are also just minutes away. We are an hour drive from the Bangor, Maine airport.

This historic village of Bayside was created in the 19th Century as a Wesleyan summer campground.

These gingerbread cottages outline three pretty little parks all open to the waterfront. Come take a summer yoga class, sailing lessons, golf, kayak, read, scour the beach for sea glass, shoot a few baskets, swing on the swing set, play monopoly, sleep , rest and restore.

Nightingale cottage and Bayside were a blast!

February 6, 2011

We've vacationed in Maine for about the last ten years and this was our first stay at Bayside. Margaret was a huge help in helping us select Nightingale and it ended up being the perfect place for us - two adults and two kids. The house felt great as soon as we entered - nice kitchen where we hosted a couple gatherings, nice, bright master bedroom, and a fun little room for the kids. We sat on the porch. We played in the yard. We walked all around Bayside several times a day from this great location in the middle of everything. We're going back to Bayside but will need a bigger place this year. I highly recommend Nightingale for a family with small kids.

Summer like your grandparents did

We spent a lovely week at a cottage in Bayside. Our daughter met friends and played in the park each evening. We had everything we needed in the cottage. The location was perfect for exploring the Maine coast.

Early Season at Bayside

July 7, 2008

The cottage was all that we hoped for and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Bayside is well located along the coast with easy access to Camden and Acadia where we spent several days. The hosts were most accommodating and were very prompt in responding to questions and other minor issues. It is a great place for kids of all ages and the people in the village are very friendly. As newcomers we met several of our neighbors.
