Five Islands House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 8

Come relax and play at our 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom home overlooking

peaceful and quiet Gott's Cove.

Newly restored year round cottage on 1.7 private waterfront acres at

the end of a private lane in Five Islands, Georgetown. Our home

overlooks Gott's Cove and Sheepscott Bay from a large deck complete

with hot tub for star gazing and relaxation. Swim or kayak from our

dock at high tide, or go clamming at low tide. Watch the Osprey and

Belted Kingfishers as they fly overhead. After your outdoor

adventures, you can shower outdoors while enjoying the view of the

water. Our cottage is a short drive to 766 acre Reid State Park,

with its beautiful beaches and trails (Park Pass provided) and a

short walk to Five Islands Wharf where you can eat your lobster and

ice cream while enjoying what's been called Maine's prettiest working harbor. Locally, there are many conserved trails for walking and a fresh water pond to swim in.

House rental amenities: Cozy and comfortable with plenty to do Year Round, we offer 5

bedrooms (Master Bedroom and bath on first floor), full kitchen, (including a Lobster Pot)

which looks out through the 4 season sunroom to scenic Gotts Cove.

We have a private screened-in porch off the Master BR.

For chilly days, we have a

gas fireplace in the living room. The dining room table comfortably

seats 8. The first floor also includes a full laundry room

(detergent provided). Out on the deck, we have a table and eight

chairs for enjoying your lobster or steak barbeque from the gas grill!

The lower level is finished with a game room, (ping pong, foosball,

air hockey, and a game table) and a full bath as well.

Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and a full bath. There is one room with a

queen bed, one with a futon, and two rooms with two twin beds each.

No smoking inside or out, and no pets.

Activities and attractions: Activities abound, dependent upon your preference. 766 acre Reid

State Park is very popular with beach-goers, cyclists, hikers, and

nature-lovers. With its two beaches, (Mile and Half-Mile), many

rocks to climb, scenic overlooks and many grills to cook on, hiking

trails etc., there is something for everyone.

For a quiet nature walk, there is a trail through the woods and onto

the rocks overlooking the Sheepscott out to the Atlantic, owned by

the Nature Conservancy which renters are welcome to use. There is a

small beach there as well.

About 15 minutes from historic Bath and the Maine Maritime Museum, 30

minutes from Brunswick and Bowdoin College, 45 min. from Portland

Jetport, 45 minutes from LL Bean. Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid Point are easy afternoon trips.

We look forward to your questions about the area and our home. Have

a great vacation!

Waterfront: Feel free to bring your kayak or canoe and leave it on our pirvate dock for the week. A deep water mooring is also available for those wishing to bring larger boats. If you would like to rent kayaks, there is a local outfit that will deliver kayaks and/or SUP's to our home, complete with life jackets etc. For more info, go to:

Peaceful Waterfront Cottage, Year Round - Mid Coast ME -Five Islands, Georgetown
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Our multi generation family stayed for a week in this lovely house. We had lots of room , so didn't feel crowded. We enjoyed trips to Booth Bay Harbor and environs, the beach at Reid State Park, Sewell Pond, and kayaking from the cove into the bay. We even bought lobsters off a local lobster boat!

The kitchen was the best- equipped I have ever experienced in a rental house. Great to have sharp knives, good quality pots and pans, matching China,enough silverware,and good appliances!

Meg was great to deal with.

Perffect Maine Coast vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a very memorable week at this beautiful, modern and immaculate home on Gott's Cove. The house is in a very quiet and secluded location but convenient to many points of interest. Reid State Park is just a 10 minute drive, with great sandy beaches and rocky coves that the kids loved exploring. The Five Islands dock and scenic harbor is walking distance - a nice stop for lobster rolls, fish dinners, ice cream or simply watching the boats. A general store for morning paper and other basic supplies is only 3 miles. Other points within driving distance include Wiscasset, Boothbay (kids loved the Boothbay Railway), Botanical Gardens, nature trails, etc. Meg was a wonderful hostess and went out of her way to make sure the house was just so for our visit. You will come away from a week at this house refreshed and in love with the Maine Coast!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Maine and were glad that we chose Meg's home for our stay at Five Islands - George Town. The home is very clean and well kept; the view of the Gotts Cove is very nice. The children had a good time using the game room too. We hope that we will be able to come back to Maine and stay at Meg's home again in the future.
