Charming cottage, exceptional location
We enjoyed a picture perfect week on Bailey Island, and The Gills was part of the charm. The location is breathtaking with wonderful sunrises and sunsets, and a setting on dramatic cliffs. The cottage oozes a quirky character and inspires...whether your aim is to create, relax or explore. What's more, the cottage caretaker, Dave, makes you feel right at home, and delivers amazing lobsters right to your door. With a few upgrades (a bit more neat and manicured landscaping, some cosmetic and structural repairs, better attention to dusting, more plush towels, wider selection of DVDs), the cottage would rate a solid five stars. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the Gills was in the center of all that beautiful Bailey Island has to offer. We didn't want to leave!
Owner's Response: I'm so happy that you enjoyed your week at The Gills.
After reading your review I decided to stock the cottage with more traditional plush towels in addition to the Turkish cotton towels provided (I'm partial to the Turkish kind - but I understand that towel taste is personal!) So if you make it back to Bailey Island, there's a stack of luxurious towels with your name on it!
I prefer to let the grasses and wildflowers grow wild at the cottage rather than keep things clipped and manicured - it feels more in keeping with the rugged windswept feel of the place.
I'll be replacing all of the windows in the bedrooms during the off season this year, and I guarantee you that dust will never again be an issue. We take great pride in keeping The Gills spotless!
Finally, I'm curious what types of films you would like to see in the dvd library? I'm always adding more, so send Dave an email with any suggestions!
I hope to have you back at The Gills again in the future.
