About Elizabeth L. Moore
Family has owned the property since 1890s and continue to vacation there decade after decade. We never tire of it. The view never fails to entertain and revive us as it changes through out the day with the light and coming and going of the tides.

Lovely home looking onto Five Islands harbor!
Had an outstanding week in this lovely old home. Spent every moment we could on the lovely screened porch that overlooked Little and Big Crow Islands and down towards the beautiful Five Islands Harbor. Home was lovely and well cared for. With 4 bedrooms and a full bath on both floors we had plenty of room for our family group of 5. Washer and dryer on site was wonderful. We kayaked every day on the Sheepscot tidal river which runs in front of the home -cormorants, ducks, herons, osprey- even a baby harbor seal popped his head out of the water right in front of us. Had a lovely dinner at Blue in Grey Havens Inn but mostly enjoyed the snack bar on the dock. They have homemade chowder and delicious sandwiches as well as fresh from the boat lobster with sides packed to take back to our table on the screened porch. Dock an easy and enjoyable walk from cottage. Drove to Freeport, Bath, Wiscasset, Boothbay and Fort Edgecomb. Played in the tide pools and on the sandy beaches of Reid State Park which less than a 10 minute drive from the cottage. Can't say enough good things about this lovely home and hope to stay again this coming summer.
Fabulous family vacation
This was the perfect spot for our far-flung family to come together. The grandkids (and their parents!) were thoroughly entertained fishing off the dock, riding bikes or walking to the harbor and near-by beach, or examining tide pools at gorgeous Reid State Park. We also made expeditions to Popham Beach, the Maine State Aquarium, and to visit new friends in Robinhood Cove. The house, as the photos demonstrate, is charming and comfortable, although I spendt as much time as possible in the rocker on the covered porch, traquilized by the view. The owners were very welcoming, and we all loved Jackson, the dog! We are definitely returning next year, hopefully for two weeks instead of one.
We had a wonderful time at this quaint cottage. Views are beautiful, the location was quite and somewhat secluded. The house had everything we needed. Five Islands Lobster was the best (we were there when they had just gone to Fall hours, weekends only). Location was good for day trips to lots of nice places in Maine. Betsy, the owner, was always responsive and available. Hope to visit again soon!
Family return to favorite childhood vacation spot with young adults
The listing was accurate and indeed, the property and views were even more gorgeous than the photos. The rooms were totally clean and beautifully furnished in the 'cottage style'. Loved the screened in porch to read, watch the lobstermen pull up their traps, and there was a small open air porch as well to get some 'rays. Livingroom is spacious, the fireplace was huge and so much fun on a cool night to play family games. There is a dock just below the house, where we fished, and next year we hope to use the local kayak rental delivery that the owner thoughtfully spoke of. Owner was always available, had various brochures, for Whale Watching out of Boothbay, for instance, and there was never any shortage of basics, including kindling for the fireplace! Of course, we were but a short walk away from the Five Islands Lobster Dock- best around. Also love Georgetown Pottery and especially Reed State park, for ocean and bay bathing.
39th Anniversary From Vermont
Great mini vacation. Listing was accurate. Property even better than photos. The property was spotless. Owner very very pleasant and helpful. Would recommend the property to anyone. Beautiful porch 2/3 screened and 1/3 open with great views of the water. Short pleasant walk to Five Islands Lobster Co. to eat one of "the big ones" while watching the lobster boats come in. Deep water dock available and lots of places to take great walks. Thumbs Up! Will definitely return next year....but will stay longer.
Lots of conservation land and hiking trails for kids and all ages on Georgetown and Arrowsic Islands. Excursion boat rides available locally as well as from Bath and relatively nearby Boothbay. Kayak rentals locally available. Botanical Gardens near Boothbay an easy trip. Nearest hospital in Bath or Brunswick.
Terrific art museum at Colby College, Waterville, ME or Bodwin College, Brunswick, ME. Excellent Maine Maritime Museum in Bath. Small kid friendly aquarium in Boothbay, Harbor, ME.
Tons of shopping at Freeport, ME (40 minutes). Incredible restaurants, music and many attractions in Portland, ME (about 1 hour drive).
Bath (15 mins) has yoga clases and massages.
