Georgetown cottage description

This cottage is known as 'The Lookout' as it is perched high on a ledge on Georgetown's Bay Point. This three bedroom cottage located on the mouth of the Kennebec River has a majestic view of Popham Beach, including Fort Popham, which was built by the Union Army during the American Civil War to protect the towns along the Kennebec River from the Confederates. This cottage has access to a beautiful private sandy beach . . . less than a 10 minute walk.

Enjoy the seclusion of staying in a very cozy cottage with lots of ambiance. This cottage with a large front deck offers a comfortable living room with a fireplace. The perfect spot for those who just want to get away to a quite place along the Maine coast. There is a full kitchen, bath and three bedrooms. One bedroom has a double bed while the others have single beds. There is a separate studio with a bedroom with twin beds and its own full bath. There is a sleeping loft in the studio that has twin beds. There is also a washer and dryer on site. This cottage and studio will accommodate 6-8 people.

This cottage is a 10 minute drive to Reid State Park with its miles of beautiful beaches and sand dunes. Also, 10 minute drive away is Five Islands considered by many to being one of the most picturesque fishing villages along the Maine coast. On the wharf at Five Islands enjoy a shore dinner of lobsters and clams while watching the working lobster boats. On the Island of Georgetown, you will find a general store, two restaurants, marina and a farm stand with local fresh vegetables, cheeses, wines and much, much more.

A 20 minute drive up Route 127, you can visit the historic City of Bath with its maritime history and many old sea captain homes. While in Bath visit the Maine Maritime Museum as well as a variety of stores, supermarkets, quaint shops and restaurants. A 40 minute drive from this cottage is the outlet shopping in Freeport, home of LL Bean's flagship store. Antiquing is 30 minutes away on Route 1 in Wiscasset. For sightseeing, you will want to take day trips to Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta and the Old Port district in Portland . . . all one hour away.
