Five Islands house description
The perfect spot for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, this four-bedroom home in Georgetown, Maine, has panoramic views of the Sheepscot River, Five Islands Harbor and out to sea. From your bedroom, you can watch seals basking on nearby rocks and osprey building their nests in the bay. The living room has a working fireplace, and the deck receives glorious light from dusk till dawn. The house also has two bathrooms, a dining room, a full-equipped kitchen, and a brand new washer and dryer. The spectacular views are seen from all rooms. During the day, you’ll soak in the splendor of the Maine coast—canoeing, hiking, beach and fresh water swimming and lounging in the sun—and at night, the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep.

This proved a wonderful rental for our (one day) family reunion / lobster feed and a legitimate vacation getaway for myself and my husband (with several return visits for a local offspring) the remainder of the week. Our main course was provided ready-to-eat by the conveniently located Five Islands Lobster Co. a few minutes away, which proved to be a great go-to destination for an evening stroll and ice cream on the dock. One could not improve on the beautiful Maine coast view, from both land and water (kayaks), and the local doe which both startled and was startled several times on the hillside between deck and water was yet another reminder that we were not in "Kansas" anymore. The beds were comfortable, as even my elderly mother who spent a night with us will agree, and the limited boat traffic in front of the cottage was welcome entertainment for those less able to amble down to the dock. Some nooks and crannies of the house which might not always get good use through the year (corners of window seats, windows) did find some web-comfy creatures disturbed during our stay, but were overall not the big attraction. Also, providing linens for renters' use would improve on the overall experience here. One note to kayakers: The current up river, between McMahon Island and the Southern end of Westport Island heading to Robin Hood Cove showed some "determination" at times, so unless you are a strong paddler, planning excursions here around slack tide might be wise. Over all we are grateful for the wonderful week this rental provided.

My husband and I, along with my brother and sister-in-law, decided to get away for a mid week lobster fest. We found the home to be exactly as described and the pictures accurately depicted both inside and out. Bought our lobster "right off the boat" every afternoon, about a five minute walk from the house. Fabulous! Cooked them at home in a well stocked kitchen, including assortment of spices, which we really appreciated. The views from inside the house and the front porch are spectacular. The lack of a television was not a problem...sat in front of the fire and talked. Spent a few hours the first day having lunch in a waterfront restaurant and exploring the Maritime Museum in Bath and the second day went to L L Bean in Freeport which also has some high end outlet stores across the street.

We've traveled all fifty states & most all Canadian provinces, and if you're looking for a truly beautiful, quiet, layed back, comfortable vacation spot; this is it. The pictures & description are right on, and the owner is a delight. Just don't tell too many of your friends: we want to be able to book it ourselves!

One of the best weeks of our year

My family rented this home along with my brother's family, and we had a magical time. The house was roomy and comfortable for the whole group of us. The views were mesmerizing. We spent many hours just looking at the water, the islands, and the changes in the light. When the weather was warm, we soaked up sun on the deck. When it got cold, we enjoyed a fire in the fireplace, and card games around the roomy dining table. The kitchen was well stocked, and everyone - from 20 somethings, to us older folks - had a wonderful time. We loved Reed State Park, we enjoyed delicious meals, we frequented the tiny organic food store up the road, and of course we ate too much lobster right on the dock. Fantastic vacation home.
