Bayside Maine Cottages for Rent
Whether you are interested in a long-weekend getaway during the spring or fall, or a week-long stay during the height of summer, a classic Bayside village experience with a waterview at the Shearwater Cottage, Beehive Cottage, and the Luv (Allen) Cottage is now even easier.
Bayside Maine Cottage has contracted with On the Water in Maine to create the best of both worlds for Bayside Maine Cottage renters. If you have rented directly with Bayside Maine Cottage in the past, you can still do so. If you rent directly in the past, there will be a 5% discount off of the rates listed on both this website on the Allen (Luv) Cottage page, the Shearwater Cottage page, the Beehive Cottage page, and the On the water website for returning renters.
Please note that there have been some changes to the rate structure to match the On the Water rate configuration. The primary change is that cleaning is no longer a separate item. Standard cleaning is included in the rental price. Please also note that Bayside Maine Cottage will still provide the same superior cleaning service directly to the tenants with the same cleaning crew as in the past.
The Luv cottage is the perfect getaway cottage for one or two couples. It is the former Allen Cottage. Mrs. Allen used to refer to the cottage as the LUV cottage, so it will be renamed that in her honor. It is conveniently located on Main Street in Bayside Maine with a water view of the Penobsoct Bay from the living room porch and upstairs bedroom. The house currently has two bedroom, but an enclosed screened porch on the back of the house is being converted into a fun bunk room for kids. Once converted the house will have three bedrooms and one and a half baths. It has a wonderful screened porch that functions as the family room, dining room, and fun center. The formal living room is undergoing a facelift with some new funiture. The house has a washer and dryer, internet, and DirecTV, but the best part is that you are seconds from the wharf, dock, boats, playground and the primary park in Bayside.

The Shearwater cottage is located in the heart of the Bayside village. It is about 300 feet from the main park and you can see the swim float at the Wharf from the front porch in the summer. It is rented on a weekly basis throughout the summer, spring and fall, and is also available as a winter rental. The rental rate varies based on the height of the season desired.
Shearwater now has five bedrooms and three brand-new full bathrooms, and a brand new lower level with bar/kitchenette and pool table. The house is over 100 years old, and was renovated in 2011. The original charm was preserved (beadboard walls and ceiling and antique kitchen stove) while modern amenities were added (dishwasher, washer, dryer, flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, outdoor gas grill, and new porch). It truly is the best of both worlds: classic summer cottage in a ginerbread village with all the comforts of home. You will truly love the 400 square feet of covered porch. It is what makes Bayside, Bayside. Please click here for more information on renting the Shearwater Cottage.
The Beehive cottage is located on the ocean with waterviews abound. The original house structure is over one hundred years old. It was jacked up, placed on the neighbor's property while a new foundation was place. The house was then completely renovated in 2008. It sleeps 12 people comfortably in three bedrooms and two lofts. There are four floors of fun living right on the water. The house sites on top of a sloped lot so that each floor has a fabulous view including the magnificent roof deck. The deck is 50 feet above the high tide water level for beautiful deep views of the bay. As The Who song goes... "I can see for miles, and miles, and mile, and miles, and miles...OH YEAH!"
The Beehive comes with a deep water mooring for your boat. You can rent kayaks and bikes around the corner. If you rent them for a week or more, they will deliver them! The house was designed for family fun and is perfect for a few families to rent together. Please click here for more information on this rental opportunity.
