Georgetown Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

On the western shore of a private peninsula, this one bedroom cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax. Surrounded by conservation land, the area abounds with wildlife.

There is a hiking trail along water's edge and also kayaks or a canoe for rent to explore the waterways.

The cottage has the warmth of wood floors, wood beamed ceilings and comfortable furnishings to add to your relaxation. The screened in porch makes a great place to watch the sun setting over the water.

There is a queen size bed in the bedroom. Additionally, the couch in the living room converts to a bed for additional sleeping accommodations.

For those who desire to stay 'plugged in' we offer Satellite TV and Wireless Internet.

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 just outside the front door. For lobster lovers we have a large pot available for you to cook them fresh in your cottage.

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.

Ruth Francis purchased this cottage in 2000

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.

The perfect place to spend a few days together after 33 years... The cottage is well furnished. Location is secluded but within a few miles of activities. The kindness of the owners adds to the natural charm of the place. I have recommended this property to friends.

We have had a week in Maine for the last 5 years that is so incredibly relaxing. Ruth and Sam Francis make sure your cabin is complete with everything you might need for a comfy visit. A great help is their guest book with excellent entries from past visitors giving you suggested sites to see. We have seen most of the suggested sites now.

But if all you want to do is catch up on some great reading and rest time,- there are two fantastic state parks with excellent beaches. Best of all - Ruth and Sam provide you with a free pass while you are visiting. Morning or evening strolls - day long beach visits - all at your fingertips.

I looked at many many websites before choosing Back River Bend for my Maine vacation. Their web site was EXACTLY like what you will see when you arrive. Such a peaceful pleasant visit. Going back again in 2014 with an extended family this time! A little piece of heaven.

Lovely Little Cottage

We had a great time in the cottage. It is quaint, has a beautiful view, is rustic + no frills, and is smack in one of the most gorgeous areas ever. There is SO much to do, we couldn't get to our whole list. Reid State Beach, Popham State Beach (go to both at low-tide and experience the magic!), Five Islands for dinner, Charlie's pond for a good swim, Maine Maritime Museum, Bath, Georgetown Historical Society, The Botanical Gardens...The owners are responsive, warm and lovely. If you are new to Maine, please be sure to bring lots of bug spray. The bugs are the only down-side to the state of Maine as far as I am concerned. Have a great time in a special spot, for a great price!

What a perfect little place!

We wanted a quiet little place to serve as a home base for a week in Maine, and this was exactly it. The house was great for two with a lofted bedroom, just enough kitchen, and a screened-in porch with the most relaxing view. It wasn't so luxurious that we'd spend the whole time indoors, but perfectly suited us when we'd arrive back at night. Ruth was a great host and offered useful tips for the area – and let us borrow lobster pots to boot. Nice little place at Back RIver Bend.
