When you cross into Bailey Island via the cribstone bridge you know you've entered a special place. The bridge is a bit narrow, but we have crossed with a semi coming from the opposite direction. I love the history. Here is information I found on...More

This is a very interesting bridge as the bridge is constructed of large blocks of rocks stacked on top of each other with no mortar used to hold the blocks together. This allows the tides and storms to pass through the bridge. I think this...More

This bridge is an engineering feat. There's something romantic about it, too - the architecture, the setting, the natural beauty around it. Enjoy some great coffee and scones at the Salt Cod Cafe on the Orrs Island side and enjoy the view!
