Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Bailey Island - Flying Lobster Ocean House
Postcard Views Fr Every Room In 5 King Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps Cottage

Experience charming, picturesque Bailey Island a Maine Casco Bay Coastal Island destination for vacationers from all over the world for over 100 years. Because Bailey Island is now connected to the mainland by the World's only existing Cribstone Bridge, it is no longer necessary to take a ferry to visit. 2013 built large 5 king bedroom Ocean House with incredible panoramic views in all directions with back of House located less than 50 feet from Merriconeag Sound on West Side and front of House less than 50 feet from Garrison Cove on East Side of Oceanfront House. Every room has incredible long distance oceanfront views. The House is surrounded by so much water and ocean scenery, you will feel like you are cruising on a boat. See beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the large windows and decks on East, West and North sides of the House. House is in the middle of Lobster Land. Garrison Cove is a working lobster harbor with several lobster boats moored and a working lobster dock in front of the House. Walk 200 yards to famous Cook's Lobster Restaurant and Lobster Pound and eat lobsters at the Restaurant or buy precooked lobsters at the Pound or live ones and cook them at the House. You won't taste fresher or better lobsters anywhere. The lobsters you eat are caught in the waters surrounding the House on the same day by the lobster boats moored directly in front of the House. House has many amenities including 60 inch TV and Surround Sound System and gas log fireplace in living room, WIFI throughout house, and 32 inch TVs in all 5 Bedrooms, 3 of which have private decks. Central air cond., screen porch overlooking sound, and decks on both side of house and huge raised sun deck on edge of Merriconeag Sound. The views around the House, especially Garrison Cove and the Cribstone Bridge, are some of the most photographed scenes on the Maine Coast and extend to Small Point to the East, High Head to the North, Harpswell to the West and Cape Elizabeth to the Southwest. From the House, screen porch and decks, see seals swimming in the Sound, lobster men and women setting and pulling traps, and Casco Bay Lines ferry boats, kayaks, skiffs, sailboats, tuna, fishing and lobster boats cruising by just a stones throw from the shore of the property. Walk on the beach on the front of the House adjacent to Garrison Cove or the shoreline on the deepwater oceanfront side finding shells, crabs, mussels, snails, sea glass, driftwood and other ocean treasures.

A trip never to be forgotten

  • Review Submitted: 04-Oct-2013

A wonderful week in a beautiful house with a thoughtful and kind welcome. A trip never to be forgotten. And thank you for all the "kindnesses" and attention.

Some wonderful things we did: Kayaking in Boothbay Harbor, Reid State Park, Five Islands, and antiquing.

What we saw and discovered: Harbor seals, incredible landscapes, some of the most delicious lobster we ever ate.

Moments, glimpses, and little details that mattered: Looking out from any window in the house to watch the sun rise and set while the lobster boats go by.

Great house for a family reunion celebration

We stayed in Marijo and Jim's house for a recent long weekend where we held a family reunion and birthday celebration. We had 7 adults and one 2-1/2 year old grandchild with us. The place was very comfortable and easy to like. Being right on the water, it provided lots of activity for the little one, digging for crabs on the beach, flying kites, etc. The inside amenities are top notch and great for entertaining and having fun. Making food for our guests was easy in the well equipped and convenient kitchen, everybody pitched in. The bedrooms and baths were spacious and comfortable. The sun streams in the house from all sides, big windows everywhere. The location is easy in and out and is a short drive to shopping, Brunswick and Portland where we spent some time. Overall, highly recommended. A great rental and easy to deal with owners!

Owner's Response: Thanks Al for the great 5 star review. That is what we strive for. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as our guests. Glad you all enjoyed the views, the House and appreciated the effort my wife and daughter put into decorating the house. Also glad your adorable granddaughter chose the tower bedroom which is our granddaughter's favorite also. I hope you got your fill of lobster. Hopefully you and your family will stay with us again and you will bring some of those KC ribs you bragged about.
