ROMANCE AND ADVENTURE ON THE HIGH SEAS! THE CHARLES ANDREW WITH MOTORIZED SKIFF

Georgetown House Boat Rental Photos and Description

1 Queen private cabin, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

Charles Andrew joins Tessie Ann as part of a fleet of non-powered houseboats moored in Riggs Cove by Riggs Cove Rentals LLC at Robinhood Marine Center, a full service marina in Georgetown, Maine. Charles Andrew has accommodations for five and is accessed by way of the included 16' skiff with 6 hp motor which can also be used to explore the coves and islands within the cruising area. Leisure, peace, romance and, best of all, no boating experience required! Three night minimum stay required. We're taking reservations for the 2013 floating season.

A Romantic Getaway: The full bulwarks (high sides) of our houseboat Charles Andrew provide protection from the wind, but better yet, virtual seclusion while lounging on deck. Levolors on all the windows provide privacy at night, and shade during the day.

Cook on board with the three burner propane stove and oven, or go ashore to the Osprey Restaurant and Tavern on the Robinhood Marine Center site.

Our Beautiful Setting: While you're swinging on a mooring in Riggs Cove in Georgetown, Maine, Ospreys nest nearby and dive for fish, Seals bob by, Lobster boats work their traps, and Sailors and Yachtsmen arrive and depart to and from ports unknown. A glass of wine, a good book, your best friend(s), 360 degrees of water views.

Cool nights? Two marine Fireplaces. Too much sun and salt? Walk in shower with on demand hot water. A little more than life at sea.

Gunk holing, Adventure and Remembering: Exploring with the skiff or the 2 kayaks on board along the miles of shoreline in the cruising area. There's history here, sea people, traders, fishermen, boat builders. And, during the peak season, bands on Friday evenings, lectures on Wednesdays, and the freshest produce and baked goods from the Market Boat on Wednesday mornings. Want to come? Three night minimum stay required. The Charles Andrew, Tessie Ann (Home Away 295122)

FABULOUS STRESS REDUCER!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay on The Charles Andrew! It was a definite 'get away from it all' vaca and we relaxed and had some unique fun. We had our little boat to take us to 'shore' and drove the short distance to quaint downtown Bath for shopping and a few very nice meals. The whole area around the cove is beautiful, the weather was perfect and we were like kids on an adventure. Highly recommend it to all you work-alcoholics and local folks, as well!

EVERYONE WAS FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
The views were beautiful; we were there later in the season so it was very peaceful. We did some excellent kyaking and explored Riggs Cove with the skif. We went ashore and walked around Reid State Park then went to dinner at a nearby Inn. Our cabin was bright and sunny, warm and comfortable. Everything was well appointed. The nights were nippy but the gas stoves kept us warm. We also enjoyed lounging the zero gravity chairs after kyaking. We had plenty of towels, hot water, and the shower had good pressure. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to cook in. In all, we could not have picked a better little get away. We have spread the word and hope many of our friends will also try this fun and fine adventure! Thanks Riggs Cove Rentals! Oh, and we enjoyed the "history" hut. I was looking at pictures of the area from so many time periods.

PERFECT ! GETAWAY.

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this house boat was as it was described in the advertisement. The views were awesome.The staff very helpful. There was not anything missing.
We were looking for a quiet getaway for our 22nd anniversary, and this was perfect.We cooked on the boat as well as ate at some of the area restaurants. Reid state park was nearby and the weather was great for a walk on the beach. We will definitely be making a return trip.

AN AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay on the Charles Andrew was idyllic. The description of the houseboat (tugboat) was perfect, it was all it was described to be in the brochure. It was roomy enough, yet still had a cozy feel. Everything you could imagine needing or wanting on the boat was provided. It was very clean and in fact it appeared brand-new. The owner, managers and all the staff were " at your service" at all times. They were courteous, helpful and friendly. I have already recommended this property to numerous people and we plan to visit again next summer. The beauty of this harbor was you really didn't have to ever leave it, since 2 kayaks, a sailboat and the Osprey Restaurant were right there. I suggest you pack a stack of good reading, drive the skiff over to a local lobsterman to buy his catch and sit back to watch the harbor at various times of the day.

PEACE AND RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
If what you seek is peace and down time this is the vacation for you. If you want for that fresh ocean smell, then look no more. Every night you slip into dusk to the cries of the hunting osprey.

Everyday a lobster boat or two enters the cove a few hours after sunrise and go about their tasks. You can even buy your lobster directly from them. From the cove's bottom into your pot!

Everything you need is on the boat from cooking pans/pots/utensils, glassware, dishes, linen and towels, AM/FM radio with Ipod connection, WX weather radio, and a DVD player for the movies you bring. The “put-put”, your small motorized skiff, connects you to the shore. Food shopping is only 10 miles away in Bath, so there is no need to byo like we did.

Down the road 10 minutes away is the 5 Island lobster shack with fabulous sea food and fresh cooked lobsters. You can buy them to go then take them back to the boat all cooked and ready to eat.

If it is the beach you crave, Reid state park is just down the road from 5 Island.

We did a lot of nothing: sunning on the deck in the zero gravity chairs, midday naps, lobster boat watching, watching the seals and the osprey and even the leaping 3 foot sturgeons. We took the “put-put” out to explore the cove, you might like to use the two on board kayaks to go exploring. If you can handle a sailboat, there is one at the docks for your use.

We stayed a week. We plan to return and perhaps stay longer. We went there stressed, we returned relaxed. What more could you want from a vacation?

Owner's Response: Thanks, Gerry.

I worried that our concept of being self-contained and without additional water and power could be a problem for a week's rental. We were prepared to bring her in for a recharge/refill if necessary. But you were very conservative...there was ample battery and water still available after your seven days. Well done.

And we're in the process of addressing the swim ladder issue. Thanks for pointing that out. But you forgot the beer!

Next year?

DON'T MISS THIS FANTASTICAL EXPERIENCE!

Don't miss this fantastical experience!
  • 5 of 5
Wake up with 360 degree views of the water. Explore the cove in the kayaks. BBQ on the water with a glass of wine. Play out in the cove on the skiff. Take the skiff in for dinner or to listen to a live band on Friday night. Buy lobster straight from the lobstermen and cook them onboard! Enjoy the beautiful sunsets from your houseboat. Listen to the fish hop out of water; see the seals swim by. Hop over to Booth Bay Harbor for a whale watch, or dinner, or shopping, etc. Kick back in the sun and relax, read, or do whatever your heart desires! This is a fabulously unique experience... the water, the sun, the salt air, the intermittent ocean breezes... all in such a beautiful location... it's real food for the soul.

Andy and Warren were sweet and helpful, always a kind face possibly revealing the inevitable outcome of being part of such a wonderful environment and special situation. Oh, and add the deckhands and the restaurant staff to the list of warm and friendly. All of it together adds up to one very memorable and uniquely enjoyable vacation.

Thanks for everything!
