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.

Wonderful week by the water
My husband and I had a wonderful week at this quaint cottage by the water. The Back River was fantastic for kayaking on. We even watched a Bald Eagle fish for his breakfast from our screened-in porch. The location of the cottage was perfect - 10 minutes from the cute town of Bath but remote enough to feel you are away. We loved spending time at Reid Park and the Popham Fort and also took a day trip over to Maine's Coastal Botanical Garden in Boothbay Harbor. Such a lovely week! We hope to return in the future.
Great scenery and privacy
We enjoyed the local land preserves (KELP) for hiking. Plus, the management of the cabins supplied a season pass to get into the state parks free. The views were great from the large window in the living area. We saw Canadian geese in the marsh and kayaks and boats going by on the river. The bed was comfortable, but a king size would have been nice. We would definitely rent a cabin there again. it was just what we had hoped.
Gorgeous spot on the river (tidal) in Arrowsic. Very peaceful and quiet and close to Bath.
The weather wasn't great that week but it still was a lovely vacation. Read, watched movies and went into Bath daily which is only 15 min drive away. There was a park pass included for Reid State park. The cabin was clean and the ambiance is rustic with beautiful views of the water. The drinking water has a high mineral content so two gallons of drinking water was in the fridge when I arrived. Katie was great. There was no running water on the last day which was fixed right away. The river is a great kayaking spot and you can rent kayaks on the property.
Awesome annivesary week
First time at cottage and we had the most enjoyable relaxing time. The cottage was clean and quite charming, with an amazing view of the back river. Saw lots of deer, eagles and even seals. Katie and Chris were so nice and friendly. Lots to do in the area too, the beach pass saved us money, plenty of walks to explore close by. Overall with all there is to do and the peacefulness, you can not go wrong, WE LOVED the place. gary & terry
Thank you for the kind words Gary & Terry! Hope to see you here again next summer!
It was a rustic cabin that also had wifi! Well designed. Liked the screen porch. We found the cottage to be very comfortable. Loved using the state park passes!
A beautiful place to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting!
A perfect way to start the summer! We have already marked our calendar for next year, and look forward to another relaxing week!
