Overview

Georgetown Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms (Sleeps 6) ~ Fully Equipped Kitchen ~ Screened Porch

Beautiful, picturesque 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage overlooking pristine marsh and waterfront.

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

The cottage has wood beamed ceilings and pine floors. There is a large wraparound screened porch from which you can enjoy sunset views over the water.

Two bedrooms offer queen size beds and the third has two twin size beds. The couch in the living room converts to a bed for additional sleeping accommodations.

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.

About Ruth Francis

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 cabin in 2000

Why Ruth Francis chose Georgetown

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Great Base for Canoeing and Biking

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Sebago Cottage as part of a cycling vacation in Maine. It is well-situated for cyclists, as it is only 7 miles from a large supermarket, 6 from a smaller supermarket and a health food store, and comes with a complete kitchen. Owners Ruth and Sam are also most helpful, and offered more than once to pick things up for us or bring us with them on one of their many trips into town, though we did not need to take them up on the offer. Biking in is also safe, as there is a decent shoulder on the first few miles of highway 127. Although the shoulder disappears halfway to Back River Bend, you can turn onto Old Stage Road before that happens, and have a pleasant ride down a quiet road with little traffic that is only half a mile longer.

The main attraction of Back River Bend is the canoeing and kayaking. Novices can find interesting side channels running off Back River nearby to explore, though this should be done at or close to high tide as they become quite shallow at low tide. More experienced boaters can go up Back River on an incoming tide and explore Hockomock Bay, which you enter 3 miles from the dock. It has miles of bays and coves to explore. Very experienced boaters can go south on an outgoing tide into the Kennebec River and reach Fort Popham and Popham Beach, about 7 miles away, and return on the incoming tide.

While there is not extensive biking in this area, Reid State Park is 8 1/2 miles away and has some great trails as well as two large beaches, and Five Islands is even closer and has a lobster pound that will cook you a lobster and provide you the fixings to have a picnic on their dock. Be aware that, like most places in Maine that are off the beaten track, the roads don't have shoulders and can be hilly at times.

We shared Sebago Cottage with another couple, one of us taking the master bedroom on the main floor, the other couple taking the two bedrooms upstairs as their private suite. Although there is a large table next to the kitchen, we had every meal out on the screened porch, which overlooks Back River. It is very quiet and private. It was a great week, and we plan to return.

Great cottage, nice location.

  • 4 of 5
We found this cottage to be a nice, central location to the Bath area.
Sebago was clean and well stocked. Once we'd covered some screen holes, the bug free porch was very peaceful in the evening.

Sebago at Back River Bend

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting Back River Bend in Maine for 10 years now. Each time we visit continues to build on our fond memories of each of our previous stays. It is tough to pick a favorite cottage at Back River Bend, Each is unique in its own way but provides a similar level of release and feeling of relaxation that is hard to find in the daily grind of life. Sebago in my opinion is a great option for that family gathering that has all the conveniences of a home away from home but so much more included. I could go on in great detail of the offerings this area of Maine provides. Everyone who visits can find something to do. Great beaches, golf, fishing, boating, site seeing and of course the food experience. What sets Back River Bend apart from the rest is the hospitality. You will not find more gracious hosts than Sam & Ruth. I'll admit I'm jealous of the great life they have made for themselves at Back River Bend. But there is no reason to be jealous as Sam and Ruth are always willing to share that great life and the beautiful surroundings they have built with everyone they meet. My wife and I are privileged we have met them and been able to share some great memories these past 10 years. We will be back to visit again this summer and I cannot begin to explain how eagerly I hope the next few weeks go by until I find myself sitting on the deck of the Sebago Cottage thinking there cannot be a better place to be at this moment.
