This home featured on the cover of Maine Homes Magazine in 2020, and it’s easy to see why. Perched right on the ocean, on Bailey Island's rugged coast, the setting is the stuff that holiday dreams are made of. The timber-clad interior is unfussy and homey, with cosy sofas, a cook’s kitchen (complete with pancake griddle and waffle machine), and newly renovated bathrooms. The waves are the soundtrack to your days and nights here, whether you’re eating dinner on the wrap-around deck, chilling around the fire pit, or reading in the library. Wander down to the cove for a refreshing swim (there’s private beach access), before taking one of the walking trails that run directly from the house. Or take the 30-minute drive to Harpswell for artisan shops and a taste of authentic Maine. After all that sea air, you’ll have no problem falling asleep in your soft bed, with the whisper of the sea as your lullaby.
