About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with spectacular frontage on Robinhood Cove.

This newly renovated 2 bedroom, 2 bath, waterfront home on tranquil Robinhood Cove is situated on five secluded acres of natural splendor in the Midcoast region of Maine. Watch the resident great blue heron, cormorants and snowy egrets dine in the receding tide as a wild turkey conga line troops across your field of vision, all from the solitude of your living room or screened in porch. Explore breathtaking Reid State Park beach and surrounding nature trails, picturesque Five Islands Harbor, and the Josephine Newman Wildlife Sanctuary.

Kayak, sail, hike, eat lobster right out of ocean, swim, go shelling, bird watch, fish, rock climb, show-shoe, or cross country ski depending on season. In short, nature at its finest. All this within 10 minutes of home base.

Need your urban fix? Explore nearby Bath, the historic 'City of Ships' and one of the best walkable towns around. Restaurants, shops, galleries, and local crafts. The Maine Maritime Museum is a unique local treasure. The Bath Farmers Market on the river is bustling on Saturday mornings. Stop by the Maine's First Ship project to see volunteer craftsmen reconstruct the Virginia (www.mfship.org).

Birch Island is located hour from Portland, 30 minutes from Freeport (LL Bean!), and 20 minutes from the charming college town of Brunswick where fine dining, shopping, galleries and museums await. Heading northeast on Route 1, Boothbay, Wiscasset, and Damariscotta will bring your visions of coastal Maine to life.

Car: Necessary

Some of our personal favorites within 10 minutes are -- contemplating the double sunrise at Birch Island; crab and haddock sandwich at the Five Islands Lobster Company pier; watching the resident osprey and beavers at play at our favorite bog; walking our 2.5 mile loop through forest, marsh, and the beach at Reid State park; checking out the sailboats at Robinhood Marina (I'd take that one!); and watching the sunset over a glass of wine at Gray Havens.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband Mark and I moved to Maine from Ohio. Although we've lived in many cities, have traveled extensively and even lived abroad, we still have to pinch ourselves occasionally when we go to our favorite spots in the Mid Coast of Maine on a crisp fall day. It truly is 'the way life should be'.

Why the Owner Chose Georgetown, Maine, United States of America:
We live in a lovely New England Cape in the area. But when we moved here, we had no idea what kinds of properties were available. When we saw this home, we found the view and surrounding forests extraordinary. We see parades of turkeys, deer and shorebirds daily. We love to watch the great blue heron quietly fishing in the tidal marsh. There is no traffic noise; no human sounds at all. Just silence, and the sounds of nature.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has the best of both worlds. We're only a few miles from the charming and historic town of Bath, just 20 minutes or so from the college town of Brunswick and the shopping Mecca of Freeport. In the other direction, we're a stone's throw from a sand beach and the delightful Five Island lobster shack hanging over a working fishing harbor.
