This classic Bayside cottage was recently finished being lovingly made over with many new features throughout including a freshly painted exterior. All of the Bayside charm has remained intact.

Enjoy sitting on the open covered porch or sitting in the rear garden patio area. Entering into the cottage, you are greeted by the open living and dining areas that offer comfortable furniture. Continuing on the first level, the kitchen is fully equipped. There is a full bath and a bedroom with king sized bed. An additional full bath is located in the lower basement level. Going up the stairs from the living room there are two bedrooms. One bedroom has two twin beds and the other bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed.

More specifically for this property, as with all our Bayside properties - there is a public beach about 200 feet wide at the center of the village, a 3 minute walk away. There is not an actual usable sandy beach at this property, but the nearby beach is great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" a sandy beach.

On the Water was very responsive when any issue came up.
The owners clearly cared for the cottage, and we enjoyed staying here very much.

I have worked with On the Water in Maine Inc and have found them user friendly, available, helpful and accommodating. I have rented 3 times now with them, mainly because they offer rentals that allow dogs. The properties have been a bit more pricier (obviously, due to the dog) but these properties have been some of my favorites after 10+ years of renting in Bayside.
I enjoyed Hillcrest cottage very much. It was roomy, homey and well stocked with everything we needed. It has the Bayside charm but also laundry and two full baths and beds for 7. The front sitting porch is one of my favorites in Bayside. Ample and comfortable seating for reading,socializing and watching the foot traffic. Hillcrest is central and close to the parks, beach and wharf.

Town Info - Bayside Village, Northport, Belfast, & Stockton Springs
Really two towns (legally) - Belfast and Northport are neighbors, and then Bayside is located inside of the town of Northport. While only a short distance from coastal Route 1, Bayside remains a well-kept secret; a small hamlet that takes one back to a simpler, uncomplicated time. A few years back, DownEast Magazine did a great article on Bayside that is still mostly relevant today. Click HE...
