LOFT WITH BREATHTAKING PANORAMIC WATER VIEWS

Georgetown Studio Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

The Loft is perched at treetop level and affords panoramic views of the river and surrounding marshes. It is located on a secluded peninsula just 5 miles from Bath, Maine (The 'City of Ships').

There is a hiking trail along water's edge and also kayaks or a canoe for rent to explore the waterways.

Refinished with knotty pine walls and flooring the Loft has a comfortable cabin feeling while offering breathtaking panoramic water views at treetop level.

There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and pull-out couch in the living room making it comfortable for 2-4 adults.

For those who desire to stay 'plugged in' we offer Satellite TV and Wireless Internet.

The kitchen is complete with full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster and coffee pot not to mention all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils you will need. If you enjoy to BBQ there is a grill available. For lobster lovers we have a large pot available for you to cook them fresh.

The Midcoast area of Maine is known for its miles of white sandy beaches and Lobster wharfs where you can enjoy their famous lobster dinners on the dock as you watch the lobstermen bringing in their catch for the day. What makes the midcoast so appealing is the fact that you get to enjoy all this without the crowds. You will love the slower pace of life and the pristine beauty of this untouched area.

We, Sam and Ruth Francis, are the owners and hosts of eight rental properties in Georgetown, Maine. We have four wonderful grown sons and are proud grandparents. We worked for years to finish our timber frame dream home at the tip of the peninsula. We now enjoy our role as pastors to a growing church in Bath, Maine.

Ruth Francis purchased this studio in 2000

We purchased this unique fifty acre property with its half mile long peninsula over thirty years ago. Since then we have lived here and operated a traditional wooden boat shop. Over the years we have built six charming cottages, as well as, converted a Sailor's Loft to a rental with breathtaking, panoramic views. We also, offer the home that we first built and lived in to renters, with it's ideal location at the tip of the peninsula with deep water frontage and a private dock. We have added other touches to our property with a garden house, ten slip boat dock, a hiking trail and clearings for fishing and picnics.

The cottages are situated to allow privacy but also to maintain the quality of the open, natural spaces. Each cottage overlooks the marsh and adjacent Back River which flows off the mighty

Kennebec and Nature Conservancy land beyond.

A perfect--and perfectly beautiful--spot

The Loft is cozy and comfortable, with a beautiful view out the huge livingroom window. In any direction, kayaking on the river was quiet and lovely. The nature trail provided a lively walk and I enjoyed contemplating the river from a granite bench placed carefully on a promontory. Just a few minutes in the car and we were in Bath. The restaurants are excellent, and the farmer's market a real treat. The botanic gardens in Boothbay are not too far away and are breathtaking--even in late August!

Bruce and I had a great weeklong stay in the apartment. We had ample space, used the kitchen, and sat outside some evenings in the gazebo. The location was excellent for exploring Maine.

Peaceful week in Georgetown

My husband and I spent the last week of June 2012 at The Loft. It is a small apartment above a working boathouse. The pros of this place are many: the hosts are lovely & hospitable people; the apartment is comfortable with a cozy living area and a compact but functional kitchen; the site is pretty and the location is great (near Boothbay Harbor, Bath, beautiful Reed State Park and stunning Popham Beach); a state park pass is included with the rental; and the view out the large picture windows is absolutely breathtaking. There are a couple of drawbacks: the bed sags in the middle (we improved this by putting one of the bed pillows between mattress and box spring); the well water is hard (hosts gave us some bottled drinking water -- plan to bring/buy extra); the water pressure in the shower is low; and the boathouse downstairs can be a bit noisy with occasional gas fumes wafting up. Despite these minor drawbacks, we had a great week here and would definitely recommend the place -- especially for the price, which is a total bargain for the region. Oh, if anyone in your party has an issue climbing stairs, this isn't a great choice for you. The owners also rent a few nice-looking small cabins in the same price range.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the great positive comments as well as the constructive feedback. We have hosted more than 130 guests over the past 10 years so there is bound to be areas of improvement especially as items age that we are not personally using (such as the mattress). Since your visit we have replaced the box spring and mattress with a new pillowtop set. We have also repaired the water pressure issue in the shower. The occasional fumes is an unexpected complaint because our boat shop typically is not in operation during the summer months other than a few boats coming and going from our slip dock or boat launch. In rare occurrences a project in the shop may cause fumes but it is unlikely that most renters will have such an experience. We do apologize for any inconvenience that you were caused during your stay. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope you will stay with us again in the future.

Picturesque Five Islands

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 1, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
For the long Memorial Day weekend, my husband, Ken, and I packed up our new Chevy Volt with food and gear, a Corgi and a Cockatiel and headed to mid-coast Maine to the island of Georgetown. The Plein Air Painters of Maine were painting Saturday at the Five Islands wharf. What a great excuse to get away to Maine for a long holiday weekend.
The small, charming fishing village, Five Islands, is known as “the prettiest harbor in Maine” and truly is a picturesque spot for painting, paddling or eating lobsters ‘ in the rough’. The village’s working wharf is used by the local lobstermen to sell their catch and bait their traps. In the distance, across Sheepscot Bay, the Hendricks Head Lighthouse can be seen. The scenery was exceptional for out-door painting. But typical Maine weather greeted me upon my early morning arrival at Five Island wharf: the air was thick with fog. A lovely gray palette was worked up for the occasion
We stayed four nights at Back River Bend in a converted sail loft perched at treetop level. The height afforded us panoramic views of the river and marshes as well as sounds of a boat yard. There, Ken, a radio fanatic, enjoyed tinkering with frequencies while I painted afar in the fields and on the wharfs of Georgetown.
We enjoyed our stay, very much.
