Why Joseph Smith chose Georgetown
Windy Hill is named for the breezes which softly whistle through the large Pine trees surrounding the house. It is 200' above sea level, at the crest of a forested ridge. Georgetown is a large island (12,000+-acres) with an oceanfront feel, with a large summer population of artists, out-of-state summerers, lobsterman, and retirees.

Fantastic home in a private setting in the woods!
This was our second stay at Windy Hill. We love the comfortable and spacious house. It is so nice to relax on the large screened-in porch after spending a day at the beach. The house is very private, completely surrounded by woods. You feel like you're in you own little world out there. The kitchen is well-equiped, and we cooked most of our breakfasts and dinners at the house. It's very close to Reid State Park, but we prefer Pompham State Park beach, which is only 30 minutes away. With the included beach pass (covers both parks), we didn't have to spend extra money for beach access or parking. We enjoyed take-out cooked-to-order fresh lobsters from the Georgetown Country Store, only a mile down the road. 15 minutes further brings you to Five Islands, probably the most picturesque lobster shack and ice cream stand in Maine. The town of Bath is only 10 - 15 minutes away with nice restaurants and shopping. We love this house and hope to be back!
Thank-you. I’m glad you enjoy Windy Hill. We love it too!!
Beautiful, quiet and comfortable home
We had a great stay at Windy Hill! The home is comfortable and had enough room to manage 4 kids and a bunch of adults. We also used the cabin for lodging - quiet and cozy. The wifi worked well. The location was about 10 minutes from beautiful Reid State Park and 45 minutes from the sandy beaches at Popham. We also enjoyed Bath - the Maritime Museum is great. Make sure to check out some of the restaurants in Bath too - we had incredible pizza and bbq. Pretty easy drive to Freeport and Brunswick as well. Thanks for the chance to stay at the home!
A quiet, reserved setting with all the comforts of home!
Our family loved this beautiful home and cabin. The setting was quiet and reserved---exactly what we wanted. We loved that we were minutes from Five Island Lobster Co. My boys loved the hiking trails and we enjoyed sitting outside on the screened in porch in the evenings.
Beautiful, modern 'cabin' in a tranquil setting
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windy Hill. The layout of the main house was perfect and our 2 twenty-somethings enjoyed staying in the detached guest house. There was enough room for all 7 of us to have dinner around the kitchen table and the couches in the living room were super comfortable! The only recommendation I have is to bring some spices if you plan on doing any serious cooking! It's so peaceful here and we enjoyed using the firepit one evening.
Thank-you for your review! I'll make a note to provide a set of cooking spices to the house.
Great Property for a Maine Vacation!
This house (compound?) was the ideal setting for a Maine vacation for our extended family. We had a family of four, family of three, and two grandparents for a total of 9 guests, three of them children. We fit into the main house plus separate cabin perfectly! (There were even a pair of unoccupied bunk beds.) I feel the house looks better in person than the pictures on the site. In particular, the wrap-around screen porch is larger and more comfortable than the pictures look. We all gathered as a group most evenings in the corner of the screen porch, gathering 6 or 7 chairs for the adults around a table for appetizers. We were able to sit all nine of us comfortably around the kitchen table for dinners. The kitchen is well appointed, and large enough for two cooks to share the space. The spacious master bedroom also has a private screen porch.
The only negative is that the stairs up to the sleeping loft of the second cabin are very steep, closer to a ladder. They are fine for older children or an adult couple who are nimble. Just don't expect older grandparents to climb up there. The grounds are very private, surrounded by pine forest. There was plenty of space for our children to run around, play, and explore without bothering the neighbors. The property is so large, we could not even see the neighbors from the main house.
There is a country store down about one mile down the main road with all the basics, and a good selection of beer and wine. The store also carries lobster and will cook it for you to take out.
Reid State Park is close by, but we chose to spend more time at Popham Beach State park, which was only 30 minutes away. The owners include a pass that covers all state parks, which saved us well over $50 per day in fees. The town of Bath is just 15 minutes away with shops, supermarkets, and several nice restaurants. Five Islands Lobster is only about 10 minutes away on the waterfront, and is a great place for seafood or to grab an ice cream after dinner.
If you're looking for a private getaway property for a larger group or extended family, this compound is perfect! We hope to be back!
Thank-you for the review! We look forward to having you back!
We stayed at Windy Hill for a long weekend to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday, and it was wonderful. The house was everything you see in the photos, PLUS! And the cabin was also very cozy. The grounds and facilities were stellar. It's private and feels secluded but Reid State Park, Popham Beach, Georgetown and Bath are all easily accessible. The kitchen was fantastic and well-equipped. Wifi worked well. The wildlife stirred all around. It's a beautiful place that's been tastefully updated and very well-maintained. Joe was very responsive with check-in details, which were smooth and easy, and he left detailed instructions on everything we needed to know. We enjoyed lounging on the full wrap-around screened porch (the cabin and master bedroom have screened porches too!) with plenty of space, accommodation and world-class local recreation for all ages - kids up to grandparents! We loved it! Thank you Joe.
This property is surrounded by 1000's of acres of protected Maine coastal forest habitat, all within a 10 mile radius, offering spectacular hiking opportunities. Robinhood Marina Center is 1 mile distance.
