A WATER GETAWAY. VACATION ON A HOUSEBOAT, A VIRTUAL PRIVATE ISLAND.

Georgetown House Boat Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 5)

The Nancy Lou is our newest moored houseboat for rent (three night minimum) to experience the peace, beauty and wonder of life on the water in Riggs Cove, Georgetown, Maine.

The Nancy Lou has a roof top deck (Sun Deck) for you to relax and enjoy the surroundings as well as accommodations for five. The private forward bedroom (cabin) features a queen sized bed with doors forward to the front deck and aft to the kitchen (galley) and bathroom (head). The salon area converts to sleep two, and the settee pulls out for one.

A walk-in shower and on-demand hot water, a three burner stove with oven, a refrigerator, lobsters from passing lobstermen, a loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou. Birthday, anniversary, honeymoon, kid's science project? Just hangin' out on the mooring, exploring the coves in the skiff, paddling kayaks (two on board), watching boats, watching nature and being one with the sea. All the comforts of home are on Nancy Lou. Experience a getaway you won't forget, and, best of all, no boating experience required.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

WONDERFUL ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
The Nancy Lou is the tugboat we stayed. It had probably only been in use for a month. It was beautiful, super clean, wonderfully appointed with everything you'd ever need. The color and design inside was very restful and thought out. We especially enjoyed the location of it in the harbor where we could watch all the activity go by and never have to move if we didn't want to. We really enjoyed the boat that came with it and explored around the waterways. We slept like babies and woke one morning to fog and then wind the next. So fun! We enjoyed sitting up top when it was nice outside. Nancy Lou is like a wide motor home on water and was a delightful escape. Both Andrew and Melanie were very through in getting us settled and following up on any of our needs. We will totally come back when we are able. Book early as they fill quickly early. Enjoy!
P.S. They supply ice each day and a cooler. You can also buy lobster from the locals as they pull the traps around the tugboat in the morning. Shop in Bath for groceries before you go down to the boat. Oh, they also had coffee on-board for you so you won't need to bring that. We only ate once at the Marina and it was good but we really hated to leave the Nancy Lou.

A TRANQUIL MAINE WATER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting a house boat and it will not be our last. The boat was well equipped and clean. The Robin Hood Marina staff was pleasant, professional, and helpful. We had such a positive experience we plan to vacation at the Marina next year. Thank you.
