Great place to stay!
Five couples from high school (decades ago!) get together every 3 years for a reunion. We always book through VRBO and the Flying Lobster House was the best house so far. With 5 great bedrooms we all slept comfortably and the open kitchen/dining/living area provided ample space to catch up with each other. The fireplace is a great touch and added comfort and ambiance . Every room has a fantastic view and the proximity (walking distance) to several restaurants and bars was convenient. We enjoyed the fall colors and easy hikes right there on Bailey and Orr Islands and never has to venture far for anything. I highly recommend the Flying Lobster House!
Fall Get Away
We stayed at this property this last weekend with 4 other couples. Each couple had a room with an extraordinary view. We loved the location and the ability to walk to restaurants. The property's description on VRBO was very accurate. We even got a call from the owner to make sure everything was okay. Nice touch! We will be back!
Thank you for the nice review. Look forward to your return.
Week with my siblings
My two brothers, sister and our significant others spent the week in this beautiful house with spectacular water views out of every window. Each bedroom was comfortable and well decorated. We cooked some of our meals in the well equipped kitchen, took a ride on the Schooner, kayaked and walked and shopped. We loved the fireplace and deck for long conversations.
Sounds like you had a great stay and enjoyed the Flying Lobster. Hope you can come again.
Flying Lobster House - Fantastic Stay
My family had a truly wonderful vacation at the Flying Lobster House in Bailey Island. The property is exceptional - large, luxurious and has impeccable water views from every window. The owners, Jim and Marijo, left incredibly helpful recommendations regarding things to do in the area and called to check in the day after we arrived to see if they could be of any firtuther assistance. The property is a wonderful place for those looking to vacation with a family. There is a sand beach at the cove right outside the door which is perfect for young kids. Two restaurants were within walking distance as are sailing charters/ferries for touring. We definitely are looking forward to coming back!
We are glad you had a wonderful and fun stay. Thank you for the great review. Hope you stay again.
Love this house!
We had the pleasure of staying at the Flying Lobster House in August 2019 as a family vacation with 3 generations. It was the perfect location. Watching the sunrise from bed, or the front porch and sunsets on the deck were unforgettable.
Cook's Restaurant just down the drive had amazing food and service. There are great hiking paths on the islands, areas to run and walk and not be on heavily trafficked roads, and kayak rental just across the bay.
The bedrooms were more than ample and every single one had a view of the water. Great breezes moving through the house all the time. The kitchen was more than amply stocked with plates, silverware, utensils, pots and pans. And the welcome bottles of wine were great!
It was a great area to explore, rest, rejuvenate, and just have fun. I hope we have the chance to go back as this was just a great location. It was the most relaxing vacation that I have had in years.
The only thing that would have been nice was a coffee maker in addition to the Kuerig, as with a group of adults its just more environmentally responsible to brew a pot....although we did figure out ways do to a good batch of cold brew coffee to use the following morning.
I can't rave enough about the house and the owner!
Incredible week at the Flying Lobster House!
Our family reunion of 10 absolutely loved this beautiful, spacious house. Every bedroom was delightful, with amazing water views from every window. Comfortable king beds, and the linens and towels were of excellent quality and plentiful. The living room was tastefully decorated, had two big seating areas, and the dining table seated 10 comfortably. The three large bathrooms worked out fine for all of us. The kitchen was well equipped with attractive dishes and ample cookware, excellent knives and appliances. We grilled several times and ordered the steamed lobsters one night from the on-island place. Cooke's Restaurant, a short walk away, was a fun place to eat delicious fresh seafood or have a drink. The patio deck overlooking the water was our favorite gathering spot every minute of the day (plus star-gazing into the night). Everybody loved the little beach right in front of the house, which we felt turned out to be the best swimming spot on the island, with clear clean water. One day we rented kayaks and paddle boards from across the bridge. We explored the island, enjoying the different beaches and trails. We really enjoyed the quiet lovely neighborhood, too, with such warm and friendly people. We loved every moment and hope to return!
