What Past Guests Are Saying
We have rented many cottages in Bayside and this one is by far t
Mike and Jen Lannan are the perfect hosts. They are available if you need them or will leave you to enjoy the serenity of Bayside. Mike was even kind enough to take us out on his boat to view some early morning wildlife. Bayside is a charming community on Penobscot Bay and Shearwater afforded sea views from the wonderful wraparound porch and a pleasant short stroll through the village to the bay. The sailing camp and swimming off the dock provided endless hours of fun for the children.

Shear relaxation & fun!
Shearwater Cottage is simply perfect!
The cottage is well appointed, immaculate, stylishly renovated, but maintains an authentic cottage feel.
All kitchens and bathrooms are well equipt with the comforts of home - including a dishwasher,garbage disposal, w/d & jacuzzi tub!
We enjoyed big family meals at the table (seats 12), and long morning coffees on the porch.
The bedrooms are cozy and clean. Lots of options for sleeping arrangements, and privacy.
The "in village" location is perfect. Our kids all ran freely to/from the dock & playground, perfectly safe and fun. Loads of kids at Bayside of all ages.
My family traveled to Bayside from outside Boston in just under 4 hrs.
Really, really nice
The level of renovation is wonderful, while the charm remains. The fixtures and furniture are perfect.
Considerations for perfection?
one room have a full or queen bed, admitting you lose flexibility.
More shelves and hooks in the downbstairs bathroom.
Insrtructructions laminated near each of the tv, stove and heating units.
We will rent again with pleasure. The neighbors were an issue (we are the neighbors and promise to behave).
Response from Michael Lannan - 07/18/2012
Thank you for the suggested improvements. We have provided each new guest with list of the appliances and how they operate. We have added towel racks and shelves to the bathroom as suggested and hung shades in the new bedrooms. Thanks again for the suggestions. Mike
Lovely setting. Colorful people and a great ocean .we will do it again.
Could not have found a better getaway to relax and enjoy a few d
My family traveled to the cottage in the fall and spent a wonderful time. It was out of the summer (prime season), but it was the perfect place for us to get away from our busy lives and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed some of the Maine sights (the shore of Penobscot bay, dining in both Belfast and the little town about 20 min south (Lincolnville?)
The cottage was in great shape (clean and tidy) and we took advantage of its beautiful antique stove (refitted w/gas)and made some great meals.
I think the highlight of the trip for me was the opportunity to sit out on the porch and overlook the village, marina and the bay. Rocking in my chair and reading with a nice cup of coffee in the morning. Just doesn't get any better than that. I will be back.
