After undergoing renovations in 2017, this Bayside Village gem was transformed. Nestled along the shore with open panoramic ocean views, this 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath is perfect for a couple or small family. The updated kitchen features new appliances, perfect for cooking meals at home to enjoy outside on the wraparound porch.
The new living room furnishings compliment the charm of a classic Bayside Cottage. The bedrooms upstairs have plenty of space for guests to enjoy their privacy. Laundry was added for convenience.
Steps off the rear of the cottage lead down to the beach and waterfront below. Auditorium Park is just outside the front door with green lawns and room to play. Just a few hundred feet away is the Bayside Village green, Ruggles Park, with even more play space including a playground, basketball court, swimming and boating docks and even more beautiful views of Penobscot Bay.
BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. 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 that extends in front of this cottage. The beach is great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on a sandy beach.

Very professional company that takes pride in their work, business and the properties they manage. They genuinely want their guests to have a wonderful experience.
We loved Crows Nest. The house is nicely updated and feels very clean and fresh. The view of the bay is unbeatable. We enjoyed getting out on the water in our raft and swimming off the pier. We also enjoyed climbing on rocks and hunting for sea glass during low tide.

On the Water in Maine Inc. has been wonderful to deal with. Always very polite and helpful with the information forwarded in their emails inviting and friendly. Clearly the owners have been doing this for one or two years! :-)
We loved staying at the Crow's Nest in Bayside! With an unbeatable view of the ocean, wrap-around covered porch and a large green space adjacent to the property, we could not have asked for anything better. There were only two of us, so having the extra bedroom was good for storing our suitcases and such and otherwise had plenty of space. The little island in the kitchen was very helpful. As it happened, as we were finishing packing the car to leave, one of your associates stopped by to check on the condition of the unit and mentioned this property may not be available next year due to the owner's wanting to make some improvements. Hopefully, whatever improvements are made can be finished by this time next year because we would love to go back to this spot!

On the Water in Maine makes our annual Maine cottage rental a very easy process. They have the cottage ready when they say they do and prep you for your vacation with very timely email reminders as you get closer to the rental date. You find all pertinent info about the cottage and things to do in a nice folder to reference.
Crow's Nest has THE View of Penobscot Bay! You can see both the sunrise and the sunset from the front porch. Also a great spot to relax and read or go down to the beach just a few steps away. We find Crow's Nest to be what we consider to be the typical Maine summer cottage.

We have been renting through On the Water in Maine for 6+ years and the experience renting this cottage online is so easy and the cottage is always ready when we arrive.
Although we missed the porcelain topped kitchen island we really appreciated the extra pantry storage space in the new island this year. However, our absolute favorite feature is the wrap around porch overlooking the Penobscot Bay enjoying the sunrises and sunsets and every part of the day in between!

Working with On the Water in Maine was great! They were pleasant to deal with and their policies and procedures were very easy to follow. When we called them to resolve some issues, they came first thing the next day and resolved everything quickly and pleasantly.
We had a nice week. It was very relaxing. The Crow's Nest has a beautiful view, but is very rustic.

On the Water in Maine was great to work with. Their instructions for renting and staying in the cottage were very thorough and answered all of our questions before we even asked them. The owners are very responsive.
The cottage is a classic Maine camp with spectacular views of the Penobscot Bay. We really enjoyed coffee on the porch in the morning and dinner there in the evening.

Well-located in a quiet place (very peaceful overall; only exception being the two dogs next door who barked loudly and continuously every morning around 8 am. Two of the bedroom windows gave right onto the neighbors' house, as the homes are very close together. The barking was annoying, but cottage next door is not a rental - it is privately owned, so I assume there is nothing to do about this, and I'd still rent this same cottage again.) The little village of Bayside is beautiful and a bit hidden, and I really appreciated the town of Belfast as well, and went often to its book shops, the Belfast coop, etc. It wasn't too far away for errands. I have loved Maine ever since childhood (my parents brought us several times from Philadelphia when I was a child and young teen) and I have always wanted to bring my own children - I finally had the chance to do so this summer. We participated in a lot of activities including visiting sites and towns up and down the coast (south to Boothbay and north to Bar Harbor.) We visited Acadia National Park twice and did a boat excursion from Bar Harbor to see seals. We found a number of good places to eat when we ate out.

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...
