Wonderful Week in Georgetown, ME!

  • 5 of 5
We all loved Whispering River Reeds Cottage! This is my 5th summer in Mid-Coast Maine, 4th time in Georgetown, and this rental was my favorite! The property was in excellent condition. You could tell it had been recently renovated; the wood throughout the house was all fresh and new; the place was tidy and clean....everything was in tip-top condition, as opposed to appearing heavily used and past its prime. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything I needed for home cooked meals (I loved the LL Bean Blueberry set). The Screened Porch was in great condition, so no way for those nasty mosquitoes to get in. The bedding in both rooms was really nice quality. You can tell the owners take pride in this property.

I was lucky to have picture-perfect weather for the entire week, and the river views from the porch, the hammock, or the benches outside was just gorgeous. We had wonderful breezes off the river.

The location is a nature lovers dream. We saw deer along the road, seals popping their heads up in the river, and abundant goldfinches, chickadees, hummingbirds & chipmunks. It is so a great location for bike riding, walking, etc. Loved that the Country Store was an easy 2-mile ride away, Reid State Park an easy drive (the Reid State Park Pass is a wonderful perk too!)

I love this part of Maine and I can't wait to stay at this cottage again. It was a very pleasant experience all-in-all.

A Great Week in a Quiet Setting . . .

  • 5 of 5
This was my second week here at the Whispering River Reeds Cottage. A few friends joined me and we all enjoyed the well appointed and beautifully finished cottage. The large screened porch is delightful. What a treat ii is to spend a week in such a nice, clean home away from home.

We found much to do in the area. The biggest attraction was Reid State Park where we most enjoyed Half Mile beach near low tide with all the tidal pools. We visited several galleries and of course, Georgetown Pottery. And we topped several days with stops at the General Store for Blueberry Ice Cream.
Dinner at the Osprey was very good. The Lobster rolls at Five Islands were not the best I have had. We also loved our day off Georgetown at the Coastal Botanical Gardens. Such a treat to the senses. Bath and its many stores and restaurants beckoned us while the beaches were at there hottest. We attempted to hike at the Newman Audubon Sanctuary but were driven out by the bugs. I would return there in the fall, however.

I would certainly return to the island and Whispering River Reeds cottage where it is best for just three people unless you have a fourth that is most agile and willing to climb to the loft. You could not ask for better service from the owners, Susie and Dave.

Beautifully calm, quiet, and clean!

  • 5 of 5
This property was jaw-droppingly beautiful, clean, fully equipped, and conveniently located to use as the perfect "home base" as we toured the area. We didn't want to leave. The two bathrooms were perfect for a family, and the loft would be fantastic fun for a little one looking to explore! The animals, ships, and sunsets we were able to see while lounging in the hammock were breathtaking and will never be forgotten. Memories were made for us here and we WILL happily return for another week. Thank you!! You've made our summer the most memorable ever!!

A very relaxing week in Maine!

  • 4 of 5
We had a very relaxing week at this cottage. We found the owners to be very easy to work with and responsive to any requests. The things we really liked about the place were: the views, the master bedroom, the outside hammock, good supply of kitchen tools and the screened in porch. It also is in a good location. We went to the Georgetown Store several times and if you need to have access to the outside world they have free wireless access.

The main thing negative to say about the cabin is it was more rustic than some of the others we compared it to but it was also significantly less expensive so that was a worthy trade-off. There are a couple of areas where the wiring is exposed that give the impression it isn't finished yet. It really wasn't that bothersome to us but if someone had small kids who stayed in that area it could be an issue. We also wished there was a larger lobster pot as the one they had barely accommodated two lobsters.

I highly recommend going to the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath if you like history at all and the Mid Coast Botanical Gardens in Boothbay is rated the top public garden in the US. It is amazing! We also went to Acadia National Park as that was a bucket list destination of mine. It took almost three hours to get there each way because the roads are slow traveling but it was worth it. It did make for a long day however!

All in all it was a lovely trip and I recommend this cabin if you are looking for a quiet getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our cottage and the feedback. We are very appreciative of suggestions and will take care of the spot where the electrician did not box in the back side of an outlet. Hope to see you again.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was everything we were looking for! We have two small children and this was perfect for a relaxing family vacation. The house was spotless and had everything that we needed. Fishing off the rocks was a great way to end the night. The location is great, you can get to many great towns within thirty min. I would recommend this to everyone!!!

Surprise Availability!! Got it on a whim.

  • 5 of 5
Property is as described, and better. There is a small loft that children would be very excited to sleep in, ladder and all. Fireplace (with starter logs and firewood in abundance) draws well and the comfy couch with genuine lobster pot coffee table are divine. We found everything we needed in the well stocked kitchen and the screened porch really screens any nuisance and gets great breezes. Very quiet neighborhood. The best is the view out of every window! Lots of outdoor places to sit and contemplate surroundings. Lots of nearby restaurants that are outstanding as are area attractions for any type vacationer.

Owner's Response: It was great to see you after 6 years and to get your take on the difference in the cottage since the renovations. So glad you liked it. We knew the kids would love the loft. We hope we'll see more of you in the coming years. We agree, the dinner at the Meetinghouse is outstanding!
