Description from owner

Architect designed stone and clapboard house on four acres of woodland. There is a dock where the small boats are kept, on the river or the mud flats depending on the tide. The house is heated by electricity or woodstove. The great room is for dining and reading and is big enough for rainy day activities. The kitchen is behind a fireslate counter and there is a screened porch for fisherman viewing and cocktail hours.

A two-bed guest room on the first floor is next to a full bath and laundry room. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a double bed and two desks, a large walk-in closet and another full bath with separate shower.

Outside the kitchen a deck leads to the garage-guest house with two double bed bedrooms and a sleeping porch with two cots. There is a full bath upstairs and a small kitchen downstairs. The garage has summer beach toys stored along with a small motor and oars for the row boat, paddles for the canoe and sails for the 12 foot sailboat.

WiFi internet.

Beds: 3 Double Beds, 4 Twin Beds, 1 Crib

About the area

Georgetown has a well-run Country Store 3 miles down the road, an elegant farm market selling fresh vegetables, cheese and wine, and has two marvelous restaurants, The Osprey and The Meetinghouse. Reid State Park is 7 miles away with a fantastic beach between the mouths of the Kennebec and Sheepscot rivers. Just beyond the cut-off to Reid State Park is the tiny town of Five Islands with Georgetown's working dock with our Local Lobster Shack and a fine ice cream window. Views of the Maine Coast cap the many roads and bless the walks possible all over the island. Off Island are the Maine Maritime Museum, the shops, old captains'houses and the Bath Iron Works in Bath. The antique shops of Wisscasset and Salt Water Farm Museums of Damarascotta and other sea side towns are north on route one. To the south are movies and Bowdoin's Music programs and Museum. Bigger city delights are in Portland, only 50 minutes away.

“Beautiful get away retreat!”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2015

This gorgeous retreat would be comfortable for two or ten people. The open concept home, allows for plenty of activity for ten. We had 8 adults and two toddlers, (four generations) all staying comfortably together. There was ample amount of seating in both the dining and living area. We comfortably dined and played games around the dining room table while still able to watch the toddlers playing in the living room. We utilized both the main cabin (house) and guess house to its fullest, where there was plenty of beds for all. The guest house sleeping porch and the main house screened in porch were perfect to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Back River. The views from the house are stunning. Each bedroom has a lovely view of the river or surrounding woods. This is truly a peaceful and relaxing home. Georgetown offers many fabulous places to visit. Nearby, is Five Islands, Reid State Park, and the city of Bath, which offered more shopping, restaurants and activities. We also visited, Boothbay, where we went deep sea fishing. Freeport has the original L.L. Bean store and hosts many outlet stores. Bar Harbor is only a few short hours away, along with Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain, with its breathtaking views. We were there the week of July 4th. Bath had its Heritage Day festivities, which included a carnival with rides, an antique car show, rides on an antique firetruck and fireworks! We cannot wait to bring the whole family back to this beautiful home, where one can enjoy the serenity of its surroundings and/or the activities of nearby communities and parks and beaches.

“Wonderful Retreat”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2014

This was our second year in this idyllic setting - we spent two weeks - one of which was with our extended family including 4 young grandchildren. The separate guest house is a wonderful feature - we spent many hours at Reid State Park (very close); swimming and boating on the river at high tide from the private dock; and reading books in the screen porch. Evening sunsets are beautiful and mornings on the deck are quiet and peaceful. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy time with family.

“A Wonderful Week”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2014

This was perfect for our family and our dog. A very private and quiet location on the water. There was a guest house for our children and grandchildren. The large central room was perfect for the group to gather to cook a meal, chat or play games.

“Georgetown , Maine”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2012

Great house. Very secluded. I stayed here with my husband , sister in law & my 2 dogs. My daughter & her family were only able to come for 2 nights. I found it was too much house for just the 3 of us. I wish we had a larger crowd because I felt that we were wasting the cottage. . Location is convienant to Reid state park, Bath and 45 min to Boothbay.

“Quite retreat in Georgetown”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2012

Beautiful place, quite road in the woods. Most important--pet friendly. And the dogs loved the water and mud. Good places to eat near by. Short trip to Bath for anything you need. Be sure to track the tides if you plan to be on the water. We would definitely return.
