This single story archectect-designed home wanders along the granite rocks with views everywhere. This home of an internationally renowned portrait and landscape artist comes with the beach just below the deck which is no further than 50 to 150 feet depending on the tide. You can fish for strippers and an occasional bluefish from the rocks just below the turf line. The owner collectively owns a smooth,sandy private beach with the other association members (there are 5 on this private island peninsula). Little River, below, flows in from 2 miles upstream from a fresh water estuary and is warmed by the time it is adjacent to the house. Everyone loves to float downsteam on tubes on the current. There is clamming possibilities further up in the tidal flats. No license necessary on the state park side of the river. There is a clay tennis court about 500 feet from the house where you can play for a nominal extra fee.
This house is fully furnished, including linens, towels, blankets and pillows. All amenities included..
There are places to put boats in and to moor at guest moorings. There are 5 private beaches owned by association members but can be used by guests and renters. In the fishing community of Five Islands, there are lobster and clams served on the dock There are a couple of 3 and 4 star restaurants in Georgetown as well as 2 supermarkets and another 8 or so restaurants in Bath which is 20 minutes away as well as the famed Maine Maritime Museum in Bath..

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Georgetown, Maine
February 20, 2014
This home and its location is wonderful.. The sound of ocean at night, the views to open water from the deck and inside the house make this a relaxing ,peaceful experience. House is accessible, well furnished and full of art painted by the owner's father. We have been here more than once and would return again.

We absolutely loved our week in Water's Edge house.. It was a dream. The house is beautifully decorated, very tasteful, with amazing material quality to it.. it was very spacious for just the two of us, we felt very lucky to get to spend the week there. We enjoyed the fireplaces often, the one it the bedroom is such a nice touch. The access to the waterfront was awesome, our dog and us just loved taking walks and exploring around. We really loved the Rockland village center. We loved Rockport too, and Owl's Head General Store (and it's famous burgers!). The Birch Point beach is also a must to check out!! Every thing felt very near by.. easy to reach. It was a very relaxing week and we strongly recommend this area, and this house. We loved the tranquility of the off season, it suits us better. We made wonderful memories and will cherish for a long time. Paule & Guillaume
Virtually everyone who stays at this house is overwhelmed by the dramatic views and the easy access to the beach. I believe that the renters from Canada may have been thinking about another place up near Rockland and not our place.
