Georgetown House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms plus a futon in the den, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4-6
This newly renovated oceanfront home with a sandy beach is located in the private ocean side community of Indian Point. Bold ocean views from every room, this charming pristine cottage provides a relaxing atmosphere of a remote island getaway . . . a perfect setting for a romantic vacation. As guests of this small private community, you will enjoy access to several sandy beaches, nature trails along the marshes, tidal sand flats, miles of beautiful rocks with spectacular views and a boat launch on a sheltered bay. From two decks you can enjoy the sweeping seascapes of two lighthouses and rolling surf. At night, you will be relaxed by the sound of waves crashing on the rocks, the smell of the ocean air and the moon light reflecting on the water. This pristine cottage has two bedrooms and two full baths. There are many large windows that will give the feeling that you're sitting on the rocks with the waves crashing at your feet.
Local interests: Although most guests will just stay and enjoy the amenities of Indian Point, others will take a 10 minute drive to the beautiful beaches and sand dunes at Reid State Park or the picturesque fishing village of Five Islands. At Five Islands you can enjoy a shore dinner on the wharf while watching the working lobster boats. On the island of Georgetown there is a general store, marina and a farm stand with fresh local raised vegetables as well as fine cheeses and wines. There are also two fine restaurants on the island.
Area Interests: A 20 minute drive up Route 127, you can visit the historic City of Bath with its maritime history and many old sea captain homes. While in Bath visit the Maine Maritime Museum as well as a variety of stores, shops and restaurants. A 40 minute drive from this cottage is the outlet shopping in Freeport, home of LL Bean's flagship store. Antiquing is available a 30 minute drive north along Route 1 in Wiscasset. Boothbay Harbor is one hour east and Portland is one hour south.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This is a bright freshly renovated cottage with fantastic ocean views. From the deck, the ocean is right there. It is truly an ocean front property. Everything inside is in excellent condition including the furnishing and bathrooms. We did wish that the bed in the second bedroom was larger. (The owners are addressing the issue of the bed for the 2013 season.)
The community has a sandy beach within walking distance and with easy access. The Georgetown area has lots to offer. Within a short drive, there are lobsters at the Five Islands wharf, an art gallery, ice cream cones, a small local market with fresh produce and local cheeses, a casual restaurant, and a special occasion restaurant. We are looking forward to our time there again this summer.
