“Excellent Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We found this place to be wonderfully comfortable and exceptionally CLEAN! The host, Barry, was a treasure trove of information about great places to eat (he recommended the Cribstone Bridge lobster shack- it was absolutely the most amazing lobster experience we've ever had!). He was also warm, friendly, and very hospitable. We will stay here again and again.

We sat on the Adirondack chairs on the porch and watched the sun set over the bay and then sat there the next morning and enjoyed our coffee while the sun came up.

Enjoyed the hospitality of Cook's Island View Motel. Pool was great for grandkids. Rooms were clean and have been modernized with refrigerators, microwave, and cable TV. Only draw back was the double bed was listed as Queen bed.

Would definitely go back for a visit.

Comfortable, ultra-clean and cozy - with a lovely view. Management very cordial & knowledgeable - enjoyed our stay! Cable TV & Wi-Fi, nicely appointed, & centrally located on Bailey Island. Definitely worth paying return visit!

Reunion was held mostly at a friend's home & nearby restaurants. One of the few motels on the island, Cook's was reasonable & supplied us with what we needed. Clean, accessible, parking, good location to tour the island.

What a wonderful welcome we experienced from the reservation phone call to the arrival and check-in. If you want to feel valued, come to Cook's. The host is pleasant and seems to have all the time in the world to chat. He has a grand sense of humor too. We would certainly return to Cook's.

Room Tip: All the rooms are ample and spotless. Imagine sitting in an Adirondack chair to watch the sunset.

Stopped here on our second night of our Maine trip. Our room was very clean, large, and comfortable. Basic motel setting. You can walk down the road about 1/2 mile for a spot to have breakfast.

Have been going to B.I. for many years, usually rent a house on the water,but due to 401k and other situations only could spend 2 days here. We tried to get into the other places: BAILEY ISLAND MOTEL, THE LOG CABIN. AND THE DRIFTWOOD INN , They were either too expensive or no rooms. I have often walked by this place and wondered about it. The pool always caught my attention, soooo we called and got a room.
Cheryl, the person who ansered phone, was very cheerful and said she has a room for us.
Upon arrival, I was pleased to see some changes were made for the better. The grounds were immaculate and the landscaping was very nice with lots of colorfull flowers.
The room was very large, with a rocking chair and another wooden chair that was very comfortable. A small dining table with 2 folding chairs were infront of the microwave and small fridge.
A nice tv with cable provided some entertainment for our 2 grandchildren.
Outside on a small patio were 2 pine chairs for sitting and watching the island life go by.
You can see some water views but not enough to make it seem like you were on the water. The sunsets were beautiful for this location.
The only item missing was a air conditioner. There was a stand up fan and the cross ventilation did provide a nice breeze.
All and all it was nice.
If u go make sure you go down to GAINT STEPS a nice walk aloong the ocean. There is also a nice beach (CEDAR BEACH) but you will have to walk some distance and parking is scarse. Macarel cove is one of the most scenic spots on the island. At the end of the island is LANDS END , a gift shop that sells great fudge and many other things. We love to sit there and watch the lobster boats also a swimming area and rock climbing.
There is a bldg called library hall which has art sales and bake sales and a flea mkt occasionally.
Giant steps restarant was freat and priced well, cooks lobster house is always good, but getting a little pricey.
