The Beehive Cottage has been rented for the last ten years through other rental sites including our management company's site. This is the first year for us on Airbnb.

The space
The cottage is in the historic district of Bayside Maine and approximately 500 feet from the village community hall and around the corner from the village wharf. The wharf comes complete with swim float with lifeguard and a dingy dock. There is a golf course within walking distance and sailing school available for the kids on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. Please note that the rates INCLUDE the mandatory 9% state lodging tax.

A stone's throw from the Bayside village wharf, this 3,500 square foot oceanfront cottage offers beautiful views of the Penobscot Bay on four floors of living with a gorgeous 450 square foot roof deck 50 feet above the water. Watch the yacht club races or check on your boat on a mooring out in front of the house. The house is elevated and built into the hill with stairs to the beach. There are a number of kayaks and water toys typically stored on the riprap above the high tide mark. While houses are fairly close on either side of the property, the interior was renovated in 2008 with maximum windows facing the water and sun, and minimal windows between the house next door neighbor. The Beehive is decorated in a classic New England style, with reclaimed hardwood floors, a cottage kitchen and an open floor plan for entertaining groups. There are five bedrooms with three full baths, and room for 12 in a king, queen, four twins in two lofts, and two bunk beds in the beehive. Peak Summer Rates include up to 8 people, non-peak weekly rates are lower, but only include 2 people in the base rate.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire house including the roof deck beachfront, beach chairs, etc. with the exception of a few closets on each level.

Other things to note
PLEASE NOTE: The Cottage is rented from Saturday to Saturday between Memorial Day and Labor Day unless someone rents for more than three weeks and then the start date and end dates are flexible.

Great summer feel...people out walking and kayaking as early as sunrise. There is a small "yacht" club that even renters can join. There is sailing lessons for kids and golf is within walking distance.

Hello, I am the President of an environmental engineering firm located in Waltham, MA. We specialize in providing air quality, odor control and noise mitigation services. I also have passion for fixing up old cottages, a "cottage" business, so to speak. We currently own and rent three cottages in a small village in Maine on the Penobscot Bay called Bayside. We had four cottages last year, but just sold one to a longtime family in Bayside. When Route 1 was built in the 1920s it was kept inland and not routed down Shore Road in Bayside. To an outside observer it may appear that the village is trapped in a time warp, but as a village Overseer I know that this trapped look is not by chance. The close knit community has spent generations maintaining the historic look and feel of the village. As a result the village has not changed much in 150+ years. it is still looks like the gingerbread cottage village built for Methodists to come and pray since the 1840s, though nowadays it is more about hanging out on the porch and visiting with friends. Although the original auditorium burned down in the 1930s, there are still many original structures. I spend as much of the summers there boating, golfing, and sailing, hiking and in the spring and fall, and occasionally drop by for some curling in the winter at the Belfast Curling Club as time will allow. We have couple of mornings out in front of the cottage for our whaler and picnic boat. There is nothing like a still morning or evening on the bay watching the seals and porpoise feed, having a cocktail, or just talking with friends from Belfast and Bayside. Welcome to my happy place.
