We ended up staying 2 nights here. Very clean and quiet. Spacious room. It's not a 4 star hotel, but perfectly suitable and clean. There was no A/C, just a fan, but other places on the island also don't have it, most of the time it isn't needed. There is a pool, and around the side there is an outside deck with seating and gas grill, which isn't visible from the road. It was nice overall and I would definitely stay again.

The cabin was clean, spacious. 2 bedrooms and 2 good size baths. Everything you needed even a washer and dryer. Clean pool and our door space. Quiet, central to everything on Bailey Island, about 14 miles to Brunswick. Staff helpful and friendly. Restaurants close by. Many beautiful hiking trails nearby as well as kayak and canoe rentals. Walking distance to cruises to Portland and harbor.

My family came here for a family wedding on maybe the hottest weekend of the summer so far. Was very unhappy to see that they did not have A/C even though it was stated that they did. Thank goodness they had a pool that was very refreshing and we stayed in for almost 3 hours!! I am aware that we were on an island and 98% of the time there’s a beautiful breeze, but maybe think of getting an air conditioner for each room. The motel was quaint, very “beachy” and clean. We will definitely come back when it’s cooler. Great owners as well.

Response from Barry P, Owner at Cook's Island View Motel
Responded Aug 7, 2019
You're right, we don't have a/c and we don't advertise it - that information was found in a 3rd party publication and was wrong. Unfortunately, your reservation came on the hottest night in more than a decade. We're glad that you enjoyed the pool and the clean room. We're glad to hear that you want to come back. Thank you - that is a very big compliment. PS - we don't have a/c either as it is usually very comfortable at night when the sun goes down and the ocean breezes blow.

This is a nice little motel. The rooms are large clean and comfortable. One really nice aspect of the rooms is the new windows in the front wall and back wall of each room. Plenty of fresh air ventilation if desired. One bummer is that the room can be noisy if your neighbors talk much.

We were very happy with the three nights we spent 29 May - 1 June 2018. We arrived late, and Siobhan was very flexible in getting us our room. She keeps the rooms spotless, is very friendly, and anticipates needs and questions. The three of us were happy with everything they had to offer. The location on the island means that there is practically no traffic passing by, yet there are a couple of good restaurants, store/lunch counter and post office very close by. Note that the wifi is available only from a central room, comfortably furnished, open 24 hours a day. Why go to Maine if you need constant wifi in your sleeping room?
