About Ruth Francis
We, Sam and Ruth Francis, are the owners and hosts of eight rental properties in Georgetown, Maine. We have four wonderful grown sons and are proud grandparents. We worked for years to finish our timber frame dream home at the tip of the peninsula. We now enjoy our role as pastors to a growing church in Bath, Maine.
Ruth Francis purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Ruth Francis chose Georgetown
We purchased this unique fifty acre property with its half mile long peninsula over thirty years ago. Since then we have lived here and operated a traditional wooden boat shop. Over the years we have built six charming cottages, as well as, converted a Sailor's Loft to a rental with breathtaking, panoramic views. We also, offer the home that we first built and lived in to renters, with it's ideal location at the tip of the peninsula with deep water frontage and a private dock. We have added other touches to our property with a garden house, ten slip boat dock, a hiking trail and clearings for fishing and picnics.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottages are situated to allow privacy but also to maintain the quality of the open, natural spaces. Each cottage overlooks the marsh and adjacent Back River which flows off the mighty Kennebec and Nature Conservancy land beyond.

The property was perfect for us. Everything was as described in the listing. The owner and her family stopped by several times to make sure we were comfortable. We have stayed at several different properties in Maine and this one was the most enjoyable. Definitely on our list to go back.
Relaxing Maine getaway cottage
The cottage was in a great location not far from Bath and close to Reid State Park. Cottage was well equipped with everything we needed for basic cooking and grilling. Our dog loved the screened in porch they looked over the Back River. Bed was very comfy too. Looking forward to going back!
Great little cottage! Clean and well appointed, amazing screen porch and relaxing setting. The location was ideal and allowed for easy trips to Bath, Boothbay, Reid State Park and Popham Beach. Hope to return next year and coordinate ?additional cottages with family. Wonderful family spot! Thank you!
Beautiful spot, very comfortable. The Reid State Park pass was definitely a plus!
We just loved the nature surrounding this adorable cottage. We were able to relax even with two kids 4 and 7 years old. Just sitting out on the screened in porch was a vacation (amazing view of the water!). The cottage itself is so cozy and has everything you need. The owners are very welcoming and very easy to reach.
Best Cottage we’ve ever stayed in!
This cottage is just perfect! Clean, very comfortable, and privacy galor! There’s cottages in the area they are just set up perfectly. And, you don’t have to travel far to experience great areas of Maine. We were up there during the week of July 4th and it was so quiet, even on the holiday which was very nice. Such a fantastic vacation!!
