Linger Longer Cottage is one of the original summer colony cottages at Baypoint, located on the western shore of Georgetown Island, in mid-coast Maine between Portland and Boothbay.
Georgetown Island lies on the Atlantic Ocean where the Kennebec and Sheepscot Rivers meet the sea.
Linger Longer was built in the 1890"s and recently updated for modern comfort, yet keeping the character of the cottage intact. The cottage has been owned by the same family since 1945 for their summer vacation retreats.
Making Linger Longer your vacation home will bring you and your family right to the waters edge, viewing sunsets over Fort Popham, listening to the fog horn at Sequin Island Lighthouse and the crashing surf at Popham beach.
