Great summer cottage in historic summer colony, near Penobscot bay.
About Ned Lightner
I have been coming to Bayside Maine for over 60 years and have been active as a boater, gardener and even as an overseer of the village. I had "Sheikie Shack" built as my retirement home and it is a year round home. I still work in nearby Belfast where I run the 2 small public access television stations. I have a lovely partner kathleen and 3 kids, who are pretty much grown up (do they actually ever grow up?). The cottage is named Sheikie Shack in honor of a pet parrot that was a minor celebrity in Bayside for over 50 years.
Ned Lightner purchased this Cottage in 2018
Why Ned Lightner chose Northport
I loved being a kid in Bayside. I spent hours swimming off the dock, playing golf at the Northport golf club and sailing. I always wanted a cottage in the heart of Bayside. Bayside is a neighborly and pedestrian friendly place where people spend time on their porches, so when I had this place built I wanted a nice porch, I wanted it to be handicapped accessible so I can live there in my old age, and I want a cheery and low maintenance home. This place satisfies all those desires and more.
What makes this Cottage unique
It's really close to the main park, beach and dock but it just up the hill enough to not be on a busy street. Because it is a year round insulated home, it is quieter than many of the turn of the century uninsulated cottages, yet it fits in well architecturally in this historic district of the village.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME SEEING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN. EVERYTHING WAS JUST AS WE SEEN IN ALL THE PICTURES. THANK YOU
A jewel on Penobscot Bay
Set in an idyllic community on the shores of Penobscot Bay and a few miles from Belfast, this cottage was a delight. The owner was always available and responsive. We plan to return.
This is a family friendly summer community. It is fun just walking among the cute Carpenter Gothic Cottages and playing in the parks or beach-combing along the shore. There is an active arts organization that puts on interesting events throughout the summer.
