About the property

Privacy, Ocean Views and a Sand Beach

Waterfront views, a private sand beach, screened-in porch, and native charm make an idyllic get-away on exclusive Kennebec Point in Georgetown Maine. The cottage sits on a crest with views to the ocean and to a large tidal bay beyond the lawn and beach.

There are three bedrooms, a bath and a half, a large kitchen/dining room, and a comfortable living room with one pull-out sofa. The downstairs living room, dining room, and kitchen form a large, gracious open living space, with a central fireplace. The master bedroom is also on the first floor, as is the oversized bathroom that features a large, antique tub with shower.

Neighborhood amenities include tennis courts and clamming in the tidal bay (available from the town hall for a very small license fee). Reid State Park, Five Islands, boat rentals, and the best lobsters in Maine are within a few minutes drive.

The cottage is fully furnished, with two queen beds, one double, a queen sleep sofa, a daybed, and two roll-away cots.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

The Grey House is wonderfully situated for a Maine coast vacation offering swimming and boating on site as well as at neighboring beaches. Upon arrival we were delighted with the beautiful ocean views both from the interior living room bay window and the lovely screened-in porch and have been just as happy to stay put as we have been with our day trips exploring Maine's craggy peninsulas. Reid state Park with its dramatic rocks and surf is just down the road and for a vast sandy beach, Popham is the best! The house was a perfect size for our family reunion of four sisters, the kitchen well-equipped, and all our needs were well met. Thank you, Mr. Dalrymple, for sharing your house with us!

Beautiful views, serene, spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the gray cottage is the highlight of our summer. We've gone there at least 7 years in a row and wouldn’t consider staying anyplace else in the region. The cottage is comfortable, quiet, spacious, well maintained and peaceful. It has everything we need. Fred and his family have always made sure that the place is well maintained and are very responsive to any need we've expressed. We especially love sitting on the screened in front porch that has a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean and bay at the mouth of the Sagadahoc River. I love spending time just looking out over the bay and watching the tides come in and out. There is a private beach and lots of time for just relaxing. The cottage is a short drive from Bath, Brunswick, Freeport, and Portland as well as to other beautiful mid-coast Maine towns. Staying at the gray cottage is a definite chill pill vacation that is totally relaxing and satisfying. We love it!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Grey Cottage. The views were gorgeous and the house had everything we needed. It was a great place for our 2 year old grandson to play and for the adults to relax. Kayaking was great and the little beach was perfect. The area is beautiful and the screened front porch is awesome. We would definitely be interested in renting again.
