"My husband and I spent a week in August here and absolutely loved it. The house is as bright, immaculate, and beautifully decorated as in the pictures, and the views really are that good. The neighborhood is very walkable and charming and the neighbors are friendly. We rented kayaks for the week from someone just down the street and were able to beach them in the cove at the end of the neighborhood, about a 5 minute walk from the house-- very convenient. We bought some art from another neighbor who has a stunning studio in her home.
The only caveat is that the water is not drinkable and you must bring your own-- they provided a gallon which for us was not enough but we didn't re-stock early enough so go ahead and bring more than you think you need! Also, if you are a person who wants long showers or baths, this is not the place for you. Only a stand-up shower that isn't designed to run for a long period of time (water well).
Our hosts were helpful, responsive, and hospitable. They even shared some of their fresh-caught Maine lobsters and showed us how to prepare them! This was one of our best vacations and we hope to return."

"We recently spent a week at the Osprey cottage and it was exactly what we had hoped for. Beautiful and relaxing setting, nicely maintained cottage, clean, comfortable furniture, close to lots of activities for kids and adults and downtown Boothbay Harbor. Bill and Lisa were helpful and responsive, and the neighbors in the community were friendly and welcoming. Absolutely no complaints."

"After spending most of August and September at 3 Bay Point in Georgetown, we are relaxed, refreshed and now long for all that we had on such a small and secluded island in Maine. First, the house itself, which was completely renovated about 10 years ago, is both true to the original architecture while also offering modern bathrooms and a very workable kitchen that is both rustic in feel and able to stand up to all of our cooking. It is immediately evident that décor is the result of an artist’s eye. The entire four bedroom, three full bath house is filled with art and artifacts so that you are regularly resting your eyes on an enchanting new detail previously overlooked. Not an easy thing considering we were there for nearly two months! The grounds are lovely, with a variety of spots to hang out, including a stone backyard fire pit!
Deborah, the property owner was a joy to have nearby in the attached renovated barn. Deb is charming, charismatic, and is extremely responsive to any and all questions or requests. Toaster broken? No problem! A new toaster the next day. Thank you for everything Deb. We miss you!
The house is within a five minute drive to Reid State Park. We went to Reid nearly every afternoon to walk around the rocks and enjoy the many views of the water and islands. There are few commercial establishments on the island, but you can exist there without going to (the mainland if you wish. Or you can go to charming, nearby, Bath, Maine for whatever you may need. Georgetown is an excellent starting place for easy day trips to places like Wiscasset, Portland, Freeport and Boothbay Harbor.
Deborah will fill you in on everything you need to know and where to go for what.
All in all, this large, charming property is a perfect home away from home."

"Beautiful cottage with plenty of room and lots of extra touches such as skylights and balconies, daybeds, kayaks, plenty of bathrooms, right on the lake. Our grandson loved fishing right off the dock and we especially liked the location of the house on the lake. Very scenic and great for swimming and kayaking. Also we enjoyed the short distance to Camden for shopping and great seafood dinners overlooking the harbor. We would definitely consider going back."
