Guestbook comments from the owner
Donna,



Glad you loved the home. Sorry for the tattered towels! We have inspected all our linens and repalced any items showing wear. Just to be sure, anything even slightly in question got an early retirement!



Thanks for your comments!



Sincerely,



Keith & Valori

DELIGHTFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was even more peaceful and enjoyable than anticipated. The house was clean and very well-stocked. Keith provided an excellent supply of literature for places to eat and other activities. The house instruction manual was very thorough. The location is very quiet with outstanding views from the outside porch, dining room and upstairs "Captain's Room" with three walls of windows. I believe this was the best amenity of all. Even in inclement weather, we had total protection from the elements, but felt as though we were at one with nature. Both Keith (owner) and Chris (caretaker) were very quick to respond to any questions and more than accommodating with requests. Georgetown Island itself is simply lovely. It is away from it all, yet close enough for daytrips to Bath, Camden, etc. Also, there are very nice restaurants on the island to enjoy. We truly enjoyed our vacation and would not hesitate to return!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had! It was the perfect house and perfect location for our family vacation. The house is beautiful and spacious, even better than the photos. We vacationed with our two adult children and their spouse/significant other. This lovely home offered each couple a private bedroom and bath. That said we spent most of our time enjoying each others company... cooking food together in the large, well appointed kitchen, eating in the dining area with fabulous views and relaxing, chatting,playing games and watching seals on the deck (more fabulous views!) We took advantage of the beautiful little beach nearby. A great spot for all of us to fall in love with stand-up paddle boarding and search out gems of sea glass. We also made the quick trip up to Bath to kayak the New Meadows River. It was beautiful and we were treated to close up sightings of eagles, osprey and horseshoe crabs. Our kids, having been born and raised for a bit in Maine were anxious to visit beloved spots like Reid State Park, Five Islands and Popham Beach. These wonderful spots did not disappoint us! We had a fabuolous time and made lasting memories to add to our already beloved and treasured Maine memories. Thank you Keith and Val for sharing your lovely costal home ! We would all love to return for another visit!

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time during our visit. The sunsets from the deck are amazing. The house was perfect for a our group of friends getaway. Enough beds and baths for everyone and lots of spaces to hang out as a group or spend some quiet time. The house is clean, well maintained and the beds are comfortable. We loved popham beach, spending several days on the beach and climbing the rocks. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was absolutely the perfect spot for our family vacation. Loved the spaciousness of the rooms(especially the master bedroom, and sunroom)--not to mention the breath taking, panoramic views of the ocean, beautiful sunsets, and view of Fort Popham. Great having 3 bedrooms with 3 baths with 6 adults and a baby. It was so convenient having all the amenities for the baby (high chair, pack & play, safety gates, jogging stroller, books, toys). We enjoyed relaxing at the private beach just a short walk from the cottage, trip to Reid State Park, Five Islands (must eat at the Five Islands restaurant on the dock), Popham Beach/Fort Popham, Boothbay Harbor (McSeagull's restaurant on Wharf St), and bought cooked lobsters and clams at the Georgetown Store (only several miles from the cottage). The owners were so friendly and answered all our questions prior to arriving (email communication was very prompt) and our vacation went extremely smoothly. Property was very clean and well-maintained, and had ALL the comforts of home. We would highly recommend this cottage to friends (we already have) and relatives!!!

RELAXING GETAWAY

Perfect place to get away from it all. Our girls loved the local beach and the two state parks within a short drive. Thank you so much for sharing this special spot.
