The Loft is perched at treetop level and affords panoramic views of the river and surrounding marshes. It is located on a secluded peninsula just 5 miles from Bath, Maine (The 'City of Ships').
There is a hiking trail along water's edge and also kayaks or a canoe for rent to explore the waterways.
Refinished with knotty pine walls and flooring the Loft has a comfortable cabin feeling while offering breathtaking panoramic water views at treetop level.
There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and pull-out couch in the living room making it comfortable for 2-4 adults.

The kitchen is complete with full size refrigerator, stove, 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 available. For lobster lovers we have a large pot available for you to cook them fresh.
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.
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.
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.
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.
