Owner description: Bridge connecting Bailey and Orrs islands.
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I really enjoyed our side trip from Portland to see this bridge.The crib stone bridge connects Orr Island and Bailey Island.It is apparently the only bridge of its kind in existence.
We walked on the little beach below the bridge on the Bailey Island side,collected some sea glass and examined the bridge up close.Very interesting! We finished our visit with the Lobster special at Morse's,really delicious!

I love the bridge. It is a one of a kind so we are told. When they rebuilt it recently I thought the lanes would be made wider. I am not sue they are. There is a lovely sidewalk now. If you own a big Buick , and you meet a big truck or Humvee, just take a deep breath , point the car, and hope you get through.... The curve on an up-and-downhill certainly adds to the fun. The average age of the folks crossing is probably above 60, so be attentive!

..has to be driving on a glorious summer's day over the wonderful and amazing Cribstone bridge connecting Orr and Bailey Island. Stopping at the far side for Morse's lobsters shack and eating the freshest, bestest lobster I have ever tasted. (And if Trip Advisor ever have world's top ten list for the Restroom with the best view ~ it has to be a contender!!)

Unique and in a very beautiful setting. Built to not be affected by the strong tides.

An iconic bridge to the island. If you drive out this far go over the bridge all the way to the end for views. The bridge has been rebuilt and is an admirable engineering feat although you will be over it. Best to stop on the right before going over if you like engineering things.
