About Katie Francis

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.

Katie Francis purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Katie Francis chose Georgetown

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Wonderful view, especially from the screened in deck safe from the mosquitos. Ideal location close to Bath, yet seems like you're a hundred miles away. Very nice, and the state park pass was a great bonus!

Great house, great price

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented for a week after our wedding. Very cute, clean house. We would rent again. Loved that we could bring our dog.

Loved having a washer and dryer.

Ruth and Sam were great.

Would maybe recommend having more fans in house it did get hot a few days.

Owner's Response: Just purchased two more window fans today for the cottage. This has been an unusually hot summer. With the fans you can pull in the cool air off the water.

Lovely setting, comfortable house, quiet area, super friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and two children stayed here during 4th of July week.

The owners, particularly Ruth, were more than accommodating: emails ahead of the stay were often answered the same day or by the next day, at the latest. The washing machine broke down during the week were there and once Ruth was informed she called a repairman to examine it, he determined a new one was needed and the next day a brand new washing machine was installed. Those of you who do not use the dishwasher during the week: it can fill up with water within a few days. Just press the "drain" button on the machine and the water will get drained out.

The house does look older than what the photos show on the website. But there is plenty of room, the screened-in porch is often very comfortably breezy and the views toward the water are nice though perhaps a few trees could be thinned out for a better view.

The downstairs queen bed is very comfortable, the couple in the upstairs queen bedroom found the mattress a bit hard, the kids liked the twin beds very much. The water is well water, not really drinkable and water pressure is not too strong in the downstairs shower. But the owners kindly provide two jugs of bottled water in the refrigerator to start your visit. We cooked most of our dinners in the house and found most everything we needed for our meals.

There's a trail that goes behind the house and goes perhaps a 1/3 of a mile back toward the roadway with some nice overlooks. We rented a canoe for the week and found that it would be best to take the canoe out as high tide is nearing and go up the Back River for an hour or so and then return as the tide begins to go out. Very nice and serene settings as you canoe or kayak up the river, well worth at least one canoe or kayak ride.

There's a pass to Reid State Park: a beautiful state beach, well worth a visit. Ruth will also tell you where there is a local watering hole 5 minutes away with a rope swing: the water was extremely clean and relatively warm for early July. Five Islands is about 15 minutes away where you can get a great lobster meal. Bath has most amenities if you need a grocery store and there is a Wal-Mart in Brunswick.

If you're there during 4th of July week ask Ruth where you can watch the fireworks in Bath. She'll let you know where there is a prime spot to watch them.

If you like quiet and some time away from the bustling world, you can't find a better place than this. Highly recommended!

Georgetown, Maine cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a great two week stay here. We loved the views of Back River Bend from the screened in porch and the cottage's convenient location close to Popham Beach and Reid State Park. It was also close to other attractions in the Portland, Monhegan Island and Camden areas for day trips. We highly recommend it.

Beautiful cottage with river view

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Sebago Cottage. It was very clean and well appointed with everything that we needed. We met Ruth, the owner on the day we arrived and she was very helpful with suggestions on places to go, restaurants etc. The location of the cottage is centrally located to all of the things that we love to do when we are in Maine and the view from the screen porch overlooking the river is beautiful. We visited many of the sites in the area including Boothbay Harbor and Reid State Park which are 2 of our favorites. There are so many wonderful seafood places that it is hard to decide which one is best! We loved Red's Eats for Lobster Rolls and Five Islands which was nearby, was our favorite all around place for all seafood. The view from Five Islands was spectacular! Overall it was a wonderful time in Maine for all of us.

Excellent facility and would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable. Pleasant surrounding and Sam and Ruth made sure that any needs we had were met. Padding on the river was fun and relaxing. Would highly recommend, ideal for a family on couples. We went up there with three generations.
