|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This large cottage is located on a secluded half mile peninsula in the mid coast region of Maine known for its beautiful sandy beaches and picturesque fishing villages.
There is a hiking trail along water's edge and also kayaks or a canoe for rent to explore the waterways.
The sunroom offers dining with 180° water views. The family room is a great place to relax separate from the main living area. Two of the bedrooms have water views and adjoining baths (one is on the first floor). The deck wraps around the home and leads down to a private dock.
One bedroom offers a queen size bed, there is a full size bed in the second bedroom and the third has two twin beds. Additionally the family room (private room) has a sectional that converts to two twin size beds. The summer home has it's own clothes washer and dryer.
For those who desire to stay 'plugged in' we offer Satellite TV and Wireless Internet.
The kitchen is complete with full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, 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 just outside the front door. For lobster lovers we have a large pot available for you to cook them fresh in your cottage.
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 house 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.
The two of us stayed at the Summer House for a couple of years now. Last summer we took two weeks there. I read three books while lounging in the sunroom (in my perfect spot) with a fabulous view of the water. Some of our favorite things to do there were looking at the view, going to Reid State Park (pass was included with the house) eating out at Sara’s Café in Wiscasset (try the lobster pizza- but everything is good) There is also a new place just on the north side the bridge to Boothbay on the water. They look super fancy but they have a great price on their lobster dinner. I think it was under 15.00
Do the tourist things like LL Bean about 20 minutes south and Boothbay Harbor-just north of this ideal location. The Chocolate Church in Bath and the Opera house in Boothbay have some nice concerts during the summer.
My husband became fast friends with Sam, and Ruth could not be more cordial.
In fact, we bought a house nearby so we could enjoy the area year round!
I never wanted to ruin our chances of getting our two weeks by my raving review. Purely selfish on my part.
The furniture is much nicer than in the old pictures. There is a nice big white table with pretty chairs and new living room sofas.
With prior permission they do allow pets, but check first. That was the reason we stayed there in the first place, so I could have my doggie with me.
If I needed to stay anywhere while my new place was being worked on, it would be this place. The moment you open the door you feel like it is Maine and it feels like home.
Had a great time. Love the place and the whole area. very comfortable accomodation.
My husband & I rented the Summer Home the first week of August and loved the location. We first felt we didn't really need all the room just the two of but once we saw the location & view, we were quite satisfied.
We relaxed on the dock & fished & viewed various wildlife, striped bass which jumped right out of the water, deer, eagle, seal and various sea birds. we also loved having our coffee each morning on the deck.
The location is close to Bath, Brunswick & Booth bay harbor. There are wonderful restaurants we recommend, Grey Havens Inn, Ospry, Shaw's Wharf at New Harbor, ME. We also loved Ships Chow in Wicassett for breakfast, so delicious.
The location is far enough away for real peace & quiet but close enough to restaurants, Reid State Park, antique & touristy shops.
As for the owners Sam and Ruth, they couldn't have been nicer and more down to earth people. They were extremely helpful in recommending places to visit and eat as well as very gracious in allowing us to fish in other areas of their peninsula.
We had a wonderful time and would recommend this location for couples and family alike.
We came here with three kids ranging from 13 to 10 and my parents and all of us found plenty to do and really enjoyed ourselves. The view from the deck is wonderful. You could spend all day out there and maybe see 10 people pass by. We saw all kinds of birds, including eagles, and we saw a seal. The kids fished off the dock every day. We brought rafts with long ropes attatched, because there is a current in the water. This gave the kids something to hold onto, and kept the rafts from floating away. One of our favorite things to do was bring back lobster and clams to cook at the house, then eat while looking out at the water. We also loved being so close to Reid State Park and Five Islands Lobster Co. The house makes a great home base for trips to Boothbay Harbor and Freeport. It's so nice to have a place big enought for everyone to spread out. The kitchen is well equipped. We have vacationed here three times, and will continue to come back whenever we can.
Within 15 minute drive to: Reid State Park, known for its uncrowded sandy beaches and rocky cliffs, Five Islands Seafood, known for their shore dinners and lobster rolls served dock side in one of Maine's most picturesque harbors, Maine Maritime Museum, housing local marine artifacts dating back to 1607; and antiquing, over 25 shops within a short drive. There is a hiking trail at water's edge and a nearby deep water dock for fishing, swimming or to tie up your own boat.
