About Ruth Page

'Hello and welcome to our cottage. My family had this cottage built in 1952, I was 10 at the time. We moved into Birch Point the day school ended, and stayed for the entire summer. We only left for food shopping and laundry, and baths when my mother couldn't stand it anymore. We hated those days, an interruption in our activities of swimming every high tide, digging quahogs, fishing with snails, rowing our leaky wooden skiff and walking at dusk looking for our friends to join us. Oh, and the camp has a name 'Pamasonsis'. Some think it's a Native American name, but if you divide by syllables, it is our family of 4; Pa-Ma-Son-Sis. I love seeing the beautiful sunsets, hearing the lobster boats, seeing the water reflect the sun on the living room ceiling, and hearing the robins chirp early each morning. We hope you make some wonderful memories here too. I still believe that this is a magical place...Enjoy!!' Sincerely, The Page's

Ruth Page purchased this cottage in 1950

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy privacy, kayaking, boating, swimming, hiking, sightseeing, or watching lobster boats troll and pull traps on the inlet from the deck. Boasts a small private beach accessed during low tide and the most beautiful sunsets the coast of Maine has to offer.

Classic Maine

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've stayed here. Lovely scaled cottage with a great vibe, and with a view that you absolutely can't beat. Bath and the surrounding areas are off the beaten path, and not crowded, even in the height of summer. The Phippsburg Peninsula alone is interesting enough for a whole week. Then there's Georgetown,. and the Harpswells..... It's a perfect spot, with a very gracious host! We'll be back, same time next year.

A lovely week at camp.

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property was very responsive and had thought of everything we might need to have fun-filled week. We especially appreciated the well-appointed kitchen and lobster-cooker! The kayaks were a bonus, too. It was clean and comfortable. The sunsets are amazing. If you are looking for a traditional camp experience in Maine, this is it.
