Log Cabin Lodging

Just a few weeks ago, we decided to visit a log cabin on Bailey Island in Maine. I had heard about this place from one of my friends, who didn’t stay there but thought it was some place I would like to check out. She was right.

It took us about two and one-half hours from Boston to get there but if you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful getaway, this is the place for you.

Bailey Island is connected to the mainland by the world’s only cribstone bridge. While we were in Maine, we visited the outlets in Freeport, about a half hour’s drive from the island.

This rustic retreat offers just eight rooms, which overlook Casco Bay.

Our room, appropriately named the Sunset Room, was part of the main building and offered a jacuzzi tub. Four accommodations have kitchens and one even has its own hot tub on a private deck.

We were surprised to see a full breakfast was included with our stay. We enjoyed everything from warm apples and muffins to a baked omlette and fresh blueberry pancakes.

Rates begin at $109 per night plus tax. Reservations must be made as it had no vacancy when we were there.
