Claim your right to a vacation on Maine's beautiful rocky coast, and do it affordably at our classic mid-coast Maine cottage on the water in the Five Islands section of Georgetown, just 20 minutes from Historic Bath. Our cottage can sleep up to 7 people (4 adults and 3 kids) and the waterfront side has so much glass, you'll think you are on a boat. Of course, you can park your boat in our yard, and launch it at the public launch, or keep it at our dock or one of our 3 moorings. We have 6 feet of salt water at low tide. Our cottage is comfortable and fully appointed including the all important Lobster Pot and crackers. You can buy your lobster from our friends and neighbors, your whoopie pies at Maine Sweets, and satisfy your fried clam cravings at several "in the rough" locations within a few minutes by boat or car. Steamers can be dug at Reid State Park at low tide (we include the state park pass). No need to bring books or games, because we supply those and unlike most New England vacation rentals and camps we supply linens!!!
Our vacation cottage is the kind you dream of when you see those pictures of Maine and the rocky coast and lighthouses, only better. We have a nice quiet cove, a dock with deep water even at low tide, and places to relax both inside and outside, always with a view of the water and changing tide.
This quaint Maine cottage is close to the beautiful sandy beaches and trails at Reid State Park. We even supply you with a pass to Reid so it's free to enter (and dig clams in the Little River)! Our "camp" (that's what Mainers call them) is very close to Five Islands Harbor and Wharf, which was named the prettiest harbor in Maine, where you can enjoy Maine lobster and hand made ice cream. Even closer is the fisherman's co-op with fried clams, scallops, and lobster in the rough (Sarah's Dockside). Take your boat or car.
This cottage provides the perfect setting to sit back and relax, but is close enough to do more if you choose. Historic Bath and the Maine Maritime Museum are just 20 minutes away and famous Freeport shopping (including LL Bean) is only about 40 minutes.
Our rustic cottage has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 4 adults, 3 children), 1 bath, full kitchen, living room and eating area. It boasts two decks, dock, float, a grassy play area and 5.5 acres of woods. For the boater and water enthusiast there are 200' of frontage on the Little Sheepscot River (saltwater) and our float and three moorings available for power or sail boats. There are currently two kayaks available for use at your own risk. We are the first in the area to provide linens with your rental. We live far away and know what it is like to have to pack an extra suitcase full of sheets and towels - and with airlines charging for baggage - this saves our flying guests even more. No worries about our distance though, we've owned here for 10 years and have reliable (and good) cleaner, caretaker, plumber, and friends and neighbors that keep our place perfect for your stay and respond in the case of an emergency.
If you choose to come during our early season or late season, you will get the beaches and hiking trails to yourself. It doesn't get much better than a good book, a warm stove, sitting in our family room watching the tide come in during the early summer months. If you are lucky in the fall you'll enjoy "indian summer" and incredible foliage - not to mention incredible rates.
We are absolutely pet and smoke free so please leave Fido and smokes at home.
