Bayview Cottage

Bayview Cottage
Our family has carved out a wonderful life in the coastal community of Milbridge, Maine, and now we can share a slice of this world with you. Are you looking for quiet, an ocean view, hiking to amazing vistas, opportunities to walk along the beach, collect sea glass, build a campfire, gaze at the Milky Way, and play? Maybe you enjoy bird watching, whale watching, kayaking, or lake swimming. Bay View might be just your cup of tea. Surrounded by fields of blueberries, cranberries, and lots of romping room for you and your dog friends, our cottage overlooks Pigeon Hill Bay and Bois Bubert Island, a National Wildlife refuge. The town offers a movie theater, pharmacy, restaurants, a museum, and more. McClellans Park calls Milbridge home, spring fed lakes are nearby, and the Narraguagus River meets the ocean here. Our kayaks are yours for the day and we offer a complimentary lobster dinner to our guests.

Take a ride on the BarHarbor Ferry

Milbridge and BarHarbor are only a few bays apart from one another.  A trip to Mount Desert Island by   car will take an hour or so.  But….by ferry,  we're talking a half hour.  If we want to spend a day in BarHarbor, have lunch at the BarHarbor Motor Inn, and stroll along Main Street shops;  it's just a day trip for us and a great excuse to take a ride on the BarHarbor Ferry.  We drive to Winter Harbor, about 1/2 hour from Milbridge, to catch the Ferry which runs every 2 hours.

While in BarHarbor,  we also love to walk the Shore Path and breathe in that salt air.   The views of lobster boats floating alongside yachts is pretty cool.  These paths remain open to all people though much of the ocean frontage is off limits to the public.  Agamont Park is for the people as well. "A public park adds so much to a community. Agamont Park in Bar Harbor, Maine is the glue that holds everything together. It is a slopping bed of green during the summer that guides you gently from the activities on Main Street to the panoramic beauty of New England style coastal living."  The Ferry will drop you off at the BarHarbor Motor Inn's huge wharf as seen here:

From downtown BarHarbor, take one of the many Island Explorers for free transportation into the park and so many other destinations on the island.  More in my next blog article.
