Bayside Maine-Great Porch Overlooking Main Park and Bay

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms


'Bluewater' cottage was totally renovated in 2000 and is one of 17 properties that overlook the main park, which slopes down to the pier, docks, anchorage and beach on Penobscot Bay. The park includes a basketball court and children's playground as well as lots of green grass shaded by several tall oaks. It is an ideal oasis for those wishing to enjoy time in a bygone era being in the midst of a summer community on Penobscot Bay. Bayside began as a Methodist community in the 1800's and is similar to Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard in terms of the gingerbread and Victorian architecture of the cottages and the community containing several peaceful parks. This is ideal for families as there is a sailing program at the Northport Yacht Club, a small beach, a swim dock, a dingy dock that is also used for fishing, and the main park which is literally steps away from the cottage. The Northport Golf Course, a charming nine hole public course with a classic 1920s clubhouse is a short walk from the cottage and has a a driving range and putting green. Kayakers will revel in Bayside's ideal location on the shores of Penobscot Bay, a world renowned kayaking and sailing destination. Visitors with kayaks can use the beach as a jumping off spot to explore the coast or just a quiet morning or evening paddle. Hikers will love the many trails that wind through Camden Hills State Park, located approximately 20 minutes from Bayside. Views from some of the park's trails include panoramic views of Penobscot Bay and its numerous islands. For anyone wishing to visit an island, the ferry to 14 mile long Islesboro, located three miles off the coast of Bayside, leaves on the hour from Lincolnville, a short drive from Bayside. Cyclists will especially enjoy the quiet roads that run from one end of the island to the other as well as a visit to Turtlehead Beach. There are also many opportunities for shopping, sightseeing and visiting the area's many art galleries in the nearby harbor town of Belfast, located three miles north of Bayside, and in Camden, a 20 minute drive to the south. Visitors wishing for more adventures can find endless hiking and cycling opportunities in Acadia National Park, a 90 minute drive from Bayside and located near legendary Bar Harbor. The cottage has a pine interior throughout and along with the granite countertops, there is a gas stovetop with complete kitchen. The living area is an open floor plan with living room with couches, the kitchen with breakfast bar, and a dining area. The floors are wide pine. There is a large and smaller glass top table on the porch for your family to relax and enjoy all of your meals.
