On the western shore of a private peninsula, this newly built 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. 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.
We had an amazing stay. The Sheepscott cottage was wonderful for my wife and 2 year old daughter. The best part of hte cottage was the screened in porch. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening conversation there. The cottage was secluded enough to feel like we got away but also close to a lot of fun day trips. Ruth was a wonderful and helpful host.
If you are looking for a clean, quiet, peaceful getaway this is the place for you! My cabin was cozy, well maintained and away from the stresses of traffic and noise yet close to the Maine amenities I came to see. Reid State Park and the city of Bath is less than a 10 minute drive in opposite directions. My dogs and I really enjoyed the nearby hiking trails, the views and overall peacefulness of the Back River Bend cottages. Ruth is a gracious, helpful and friendly host. I really enjoyed my time here and would come back again.
this is a nice and quiet place, very clean, the view when you're sitting at the back is beautiful, the only thing is the road to go to the chalet is narrow and with my car that is low i had to be very careful driving there.
This was a great place to get away from it all, My Fiance and I had a great time in this cozy little cottage. It was nice and quiet, and the view was outstanding. The property was well maintained and Ruth is a wonderful Lady cant wait to visit again next year.
If you are looking for a great place to get away from the stress of your daily life your looking at the right place. We have enjoyed visiting Back River Bend for 6 years now. It has all the beauty Maine has to offer in a very relaxing atmosphere. And there is an unlimited amount of things to do in the area should you grow tired of relaxing. Reid State park has two wonderful sand beaches just minutes away. Looking for lobster. Georgetown has the best Maine has to offer in my opinion. For greating shopping head to Freeport or Boothbay harbor. Both are a short 30 minute drive. There are also many other great towns close by that have all the Maine charm that you are looking for. Best of all Back River Bend has the most gracious hosts you will ever meet. They always make you feel welcome and go out of their way to make your stay the most that it could possibly be.
Within 15 minute drive to: Reid State Park, known for its uncrowded sandy beaches and rocky cliffs; Five Islands Seafood, known for their shore dinners and lobster rolls served dock side in one of Maine's most picturesque harbors; Maine Maritime Museum, housing local marine artifacts dating back to 1607; and antiquing, over 25 shops within a short drive. There is a hiking trail at water's edge and a nearby deep water dock for fishing, swimming or to tie up your own boat.
