'Cottage by the Sea' is on the bold, deep water frontage of Sheepscot Bay with sweeping, panoramic views to Five Islands, Southport and the Ocean. Located on a ten acre private setting, this secluded, cozy cottage with rustic Maine charm, is one-half mile by car, bicycle or walking trail to Reid State Park. Relax and enjoy the ocean views from a second floor deck while enjoying that afternoon glass of wine. Seafood dinners are available just minutes away on the dock at Five Islands. Try sea kayaking. Walk along or fish from the cottage's rocky shoreline. From a bench on your rocky ledge, watch lobster men pull up their lobster traps or watch sailboats sail by. A recent visitor has called the cottage and its location 'The Jewel of Georgetown.' Nearby, enjoy all that Reid State Park has to offer including its fabulous beaches and panoramic views. With an orientation towards the east, 'Cottage by the Sea ' sits on a gorgeous piece of Maine's beautiful coast. The rental is pet friendly. Order freshly caught lobsters from a local fisherman. (Name and telephone number in the cottage). Cottage has internet access and DISH TV. Families may enjoy sitting by the campfire - weather permitting.

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.

"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!

This was our first week in Maine, and we loved it. Reid State Park has a beautiful beach and fun little tidal pools for kids to play in. The cottage was fun for the kids, and they felt like the upstairs was their own little space. We enjoyed the fire pit outside, with smores every other night. The rocks on the coast were fun for the kids, and my wife and I enjoyed just sitting there and watching the lobster boats pull up their traps. We were lucky to watch fireworks across the bay the last night we were there. Overall it was a terrific stay. Thanks Tony!
The Cottage by the Sea is truly a marvelous location for relaxing! The view from the deck and from the bench on the rock are unrivaled. The cottage is cozy, quaint, and comfortable. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The location is convenient to Reid State Park and to the Five Islands Lobstah Dock -- my favorite!!!!! It is a mere 20 minutes to Bath with its many amenities. I would be happy to return and to recommend this property.
My Husband , along with my daughter and I stayed at this wonderful , quiet , scenic cottage last week. We loved it so much, the views from the upper deck, the bench overlooking Sheepsco tBay and the ocean, are jaw-dropping!!! The cottage itself is comfortable and the second floor has a queen bed and a sofa. The stairs are steep to the second floor, and could be hard to navigate for some. The owner is a warm caring friendly person who will help with any information you need for the area. We loved our visit and hope to return next summer!!!
Our vacation at "Cottage by the Sea" was very memorable! It is a great place to get away from it all! The view from the bench near the ocean is fantastic as you watch the waves crashing into the rocks or just watching the lobstermen gather their lobster traps. If you are an early riser, you can watch the sun rise from the second floor deck of the cottage. It is worth waking up to see the sun rise. The cottage has alot of charm & amenities to make your stay comfortable as if you were at home. We saw deer everyday on the property and also some wild turkeys. Reid State Park is a great place to take walks, ride the waves, or have a picnic. It is a great place to take your dog as there are alot of nature walks to take. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who just wants to get away from it all and just enjoy nature!

As always the Cottage by the Sea exceeded our expectations. You can't beat a nice relaxing weekend with ocean views in the beautiful town of Georgetown, Maine. The cottage is amazing. We were able to wake up to the ocean breeze with a nice cup of coffee and watch the sun rise. This cottage allows you to shut down the laptop and cell phone and appreciate and enjoy a relaxing vacation with family and friends. Passes to Reid State Park are a must to explore and take advantage of. And it wouldn't be a trip to Georgetown without getting ice cream at Five Islands. Of all of the places I have stayed in Maine, this is my favorite
Thanks as always for the hospitality as this is a first class operation
The Cottage by the Sea was beautiful and perfect for a serene getaway. We stayed there 5 years ago this May for our honeymoon. We spent our time relaxing, fishing, playing board games, mountain biking and hiking in Reid State Park, and soaking about the breathtaking views of the sea. The cottage was cozy and had all the necessary amenities. If you love the outdoors then this is the location that will suit your needs. Thank you for a memorable honeymoon that I still daydream about 5 years later!
'Cottage by the Sea' is a great place to relax, read a book, watch the sun rise, take a walk on the shoreline where you can sit out on a bench and observe the many sea birds and boats. The night sky is beautiful. Enjoy the peace and tranquility in a rural setting! You can sit on the deck or sit out on the rocks and watch lobstermen pull up, unload and bait lobster traps. Often a seal will pop up to take a look around. Restaurants include Blue at Grey Havens Inn and The Osprey. There's eating great seafood dinners on the dock in Five Islands. Cultural events and shopping are in Bath and Brunswick thirty five minutes away.
