This spot will take your breath away. Cameo Cottage has all the charm of an era gone by with all the amenities you are looking for today.

Just a short walk from the Yacht Club, swimming float and Ruggles Park along Shore Road resides this wonderfully refurbished early 1900's Victorian cottage on the shores of Penobscot Bay.  These owners did the renovations right by keeping all the charm of the last century but with all the comfortable amenities to make it feel like home.

The kitchen is very well appointed right down to the pink Kitchen Aide mixer, ample cabinets, double sink, windows overlooking the bay and loads of sunlight.  There is a sweet little antique table and chairs to keep the chef company while you wait for your meals or have your morning coffee.  An old Hoosier cabinet is perfect for storing food and other dry goods.  Off the kitchen is a full bathroom with standing shower.

The living room boasts great water views and two seating areas including a cozy spot in from of the gas fired parlor stove for evening fires when the temperature is cool. To the right facing the ocean is a dining nook with windows all around, more water views and seating for 6.

A fabulous glass porch with wicker furnishings is along the waterfront side of the cottage.  A futon couch makes for a great double bed if one chooses to sleep in the breezes and sounds of the ocean. The windows are new, all are screened and  provide a stunning panoramic view of the Bay with Sears Island, Blue Hill and Islesboro in the background.  To the north, the Bay views include the Bayside mooring field, dock and the entrance to Belfast Harbor.

To the second floor on the ocean side of the cottage is the queen bedroom with it's own bathroom and deck.  The room has an antique bed frame with queen mattress.  There are  built in closets and a large double glass door to a small deck with table and two chairs for morning coffee or a bird's eye view to the Bay for afternoon reading.   The ceilings are open to the rafters giving more "space" to the room.  A private bath is off the bedroom with bead board walls, claw foot tub, separate shower and antique vanity with sink.

Outside the master bedroom, a short hallway opens to the smaller second bedroom with a double bed, cathedral ceilings and sizable closet. There is a sliding door to provide privacy from the twin bedroom.

The back bedroom has two twin beds, built in closets and dresser.  This room is open to the back stairway that leads down the a hall off the kitchen housing the washer/dryer. There are several windows in this room bringing in light from various angles.  The sloped wood ceilings add to the charm of this great resting place.

Outside - Saving the best for last, a great crushed stone patio is accessible from the glass porch by a curving staircase.  The patio is very large and has privacy but also great views of the bay.  Another set of stairs leads right down to the beach with a HUGE deck right at the edge of the water . 

Cameo cottage is an exceptional get away.  Don't delay in asking for this cottage, it is highly desired by all who see it or have been here before.

"Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful week at this cottage (Cameo the Labor Day week).

We being from North Dakota did not know what a treat we would have by going to Maine.

The cottage was way more then we could of wanted and the views where the greatest.
We would recommend this trip to anyone.
Thanks again and hope to do Business with you again."

A perfect week @ Cameo !

Thank you fro sharing your beautiful cottage with us . I was a most wonderful & restful vacation for our 1st time in Bayside .

The ceiling fans were a nice addition to our comfort on hot evenings. Lots of puzzling & cards & games o the magnificent porch !

Even the water was warm enough  to enjoy this week. Our daughter learned to sail. We lunched in Camden by the falls and climbed Mt. Battie ( awesome view ) . The boys went to Fort Knox. Breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
With much appreciation

A picture perfect vacation !
We truly loved our stay at Cameo Cottage! Definitely a home away from home right down to the pink kitchen aid Mixer !
We loved the views, the décor and the tranquility. Many puzzles were assembled, books were read and we even collected an entire jar of beach glass.
Thank you so much for a truly wonderful vacation. We can’t wait to come back. And visit again.

Cameo Cottage – What a special place.
It stimulates the senses and soothes the soul.
It refreshes the spirit and makes on whole.
A place to laugh, a place to play.
The comforts of home with a
View of the bay
And memories to cherish from our week’s perfect stay.
