Georgetown cottage description

A quaint period cottage situated at the ocean's edge with its own dock and float only minutes away from the open ocean. Enjoy watching the working lobster boats and pleasure boats from the glassed-in front porch or the comfort of lawn chairs under the sprawling oak tree.

This cottage features a deep water dock with a float where you can tie up your boat or kayak. For boaters and paddlers, destinations include Robinhood Cove, Goose Rock Passage and Five Islands. You can explore tidal rivers which offer passages to coves and bays as well as nearby islands that are on the Maine Island Trail system. Only minutes from the open ocean, you can enjoy cruising to unique locations such as Seguin Island Lighthouse, Damariscove Island, Boothbay Harbor and other great areas along the mid coast of Maine.

This charming two bedroom cottage will accommodate 4-6 people. It has a living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen and a glassed-in front porch. The two bedrooms are located upstairs and have a king-size bed in each. There is also a 3/4 bath on the second floor. The glassed-in porch has a pull out coach that will sleep 2 people. There is a 3/4 bath on the first floor in addition to a washer/dryer.

The cottage is less than a 10 minute drive to one of the most sought-after lobster shacks on the Maine coast at Five Islands. Five Islands is considered by many to be one of the most picturesque fishing villages where you can enjoy a shore dinner on the wharf while watching the boating activities in the harbor. A 10 minute drive will take you to Reid State Park with its miles of sandy beaches and beautiful sand dunes. Visit historic Bath, a quick 20 minute trip up Route 127 known for its maritime heritage including Maine Maritime Museum as well as its large number of stores, shops and restaurants. Antiquing is available a thirty minute drive away on Route 1 in Wiscasset. Boothbay Harbor is a 45 minute drive and Portland is one hour south.
