Guestbook comments from the owner
Written in cottage Guestbook:
"Thanks for a wonderful week in your very special cozy cottage! We saw a beautiful mother and tiny baby deer in the driveway...such a special Maine woods site. I'll send you some great sunrise pics I took when Mickey woke me up. Mickey loved her first vacation in Maine in your cottage. Your lunch tip to go to Five Islands for fish and chips was such a good idea. There fish and chips are the best! So fresh and tasty. We went back to Five Islands for a "last night" dinner - such a good idea. The lobsters and steamers were so good. We look forward to coming back to your special hospitality and cozy cottage. Your kindness makes a visit so special...little things like ordering lobsters from your lobsterman down the road...having a BIG lobster pot handy in the closet...beach passes. Visiting you and your cottage...is really like visiting family!
See you next year!
Agnes and Bill (and Mickey)"
I am a retired elementary school principal from CT. My wife, also an elementary school principal, dreamed of our Maine home by the sea as our retirement home. Sadly, she passed away in 2011 from complications of the non Hodgkins cancer she was diagnosed with in 2003. I am an Eagle scout and believe in the golden rule, being prepared and doing a good turn daily. These hallmarks have steered me through life. I still have a home in CT which I plan to sell. My son and his wife and two children live in CT. I own a sportscar, a 1963 Morgan, that I should drive more often. At the end of the summer season, the magnificent views and beauty of the coast make it difficult to leave my home in Maine. I enjoy meeting the people and the families who rent the cottage. I am pleased when I see their enjoyment of the cottage and the views.
When you see this property, its privacy, seclusion, and location on the water, you will understand why we fell in love with it. So have the renters who have stayed here. The guest book and reviews on-line attest to this. It faces east and it's expansive water views are a daily joy.. Each day is wondrous! The house, which sits on ten acres, also came with a quaint guest cottage, that we turned into a rental, 'Cottage by the Sea.' The land adjoining the cottage is undeveloped forest. We are a half mile from Reid State Park and close to the village of Five Islands. We loved that Georgetown is a classic, New England seacoast town that is yet to be spoiled by development or discovered. Georgetown people are truly friendly. The area is a great place to relax and get away from it all.
The water views are fabulous. The cottage is a quaint, rustic, upgraded Maine cottage decorated with interesting items. (If you want to taste the flavor of Maine, this cottage is it!) Lots of privacy featured. Second floor deck with views of the water.
