Cottages for Rent
A 90+ year old barn is being converted into the Watermelon Cottage. The old barn was jacked up and temporarily moved to allow a new foundation to be poured. Once the foundation has been completed the barn will be placed on its new foundation, creating a year-round structure. The structure will then be improved with two to three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a first floor open concept. The Watermelow cottage will be placed on its new foundation and the exterior will be improved prior to the start of this winter.
During this winter and early spring the cottage will be improved on the inside. It will be available for rental as early as Labor Day 2015. Click here if you would like to follow the construction progress.
The 90+ year old LUV cottage was updated in 2014 for a perfect mix of old cottage and new cottage. The original cottage was built as a simple one room cottage with a single bedroom overhead. Over the years, a kitchen, laundry room, first floor bedroom, dining room, and two screened porches were added. While completing foundation work for all these areas, a section of the orignal front porch was enclosed to make a new mudroom, a screened porch was converted to a bunk room, and the deck off of the laundry room was converted to a bar-b-que porch area complete with ginerbread railing.
The cottage boasts a queen bedroom and a new low-profile bath/tub combination in the bathroom, and a laundry room off of the kitchen for easy single floor living. It also includes a classic upstairs cottage bedroom with half bath, and a bunk room off of the master bedroom for the kids or grandkids. The screened porch has been completely redone. It functions as the family room, dining room, and fun center. Inside there is a living area with a futon and TV and a new formal dining area with a 3-in-1 table that offers formal dining and also bumper pool or cards. There is some new wicker porch furniture planned for the 2015 summer season!
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. Please click here for more information on this rental property.
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.
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 Cottage is available as a direct rental with the owner or from a professional propoerty management service.
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.
