Charles Andrew joins Tessie Ann as part of a fleet of non-powered houseboats moored in Riggs Cove by Riggs Cove Rentals LLC at Derecktor Maine LLC, a full service marina in Georgetown, Maine. Charles Andrew has accommodations for five and is accessed by way of the included 16' skiff with 6 hp motor which can also be used to explore the coves and islands within the cruising area. Leisure, peace, romance and, best of all, no boating experience required! Three night minimum stay required.
A Romantic Getaway: The full bulwarks (high sides) of our houseboat Charles Andrew provide protection from the wind, but better yet, virtual seclusion while lounging on deck. Levolors on all the windows provide privacy at night, and shade during the day.
Cook on board with the three burner propane stove and oven, or go ashore to the Osprey Restaurant and Tavern on the Derecktor Maine LLC site.
Our Beautiful Setting: While you're swinging on a mooring in Riggs Cove, ospreys nest nearby and dive for fish, seals bob by, lobster boats work their traps, and sailors and yachtsmen arrive and depart to and from ports unknown. A glass of wine, a good book, your best friend(s), 360 degrees of water views.
Cool nights? Two marine Fireplaces. Too much sun and salt? Walk in shower with on demand hot water. A little more than life at sea.
Gunk holing, adventure and remembering: exploring with the skiff or the 2 kayaks on board along the miles of shoreline in the cruising area. There's history here, sea people, traders, fishermen, boat builders. Want to come? Three night minimum stay required. The Charles Andrew, Tessie Ann (Home Away 295122)

Love it here!!!
This is the 6th time I have rented one of their boats and Illbe coming back. Saw so much wild life activity, great spot for visiting tows. Staff is excellent and very helpful. Boat is spacious and relaxing.
Delightful adventure, beautiful setting
Great quiet location. Staff were very helpful. Use of the small boat to get to the house boat and explore the harbor and river was a great addition. We were lucky with perfect weather. Highly recommend for a weekend get away.
Our summer home away from home!
This was our 7th time on the houseboat and it never disappoints! Peace, tranquility, beauty, seas, spectacular sunrise/sunset and a restful time away! Can't wait to return!
Best way to spend a 3-day weekend on coastal Maine
Our Labor Day weekend aboard the Charles Andrew exceeded all expectations. The boat is new, well appointed and perfectly maintained, all amenities are as advertised. During the day we explored under power, paddle, sail. . . Evenings we enjoyed great dinner at the boatyard restaurant (with full bar), watched a movie aboard and did some reading. Kids had a blast boating, fishing, watching seals right from their berth, etc. most important, the boatyard staff are delightful people who bent over backwards to make sure that we were having a great time. We strongly recommend this venue if you are looking for a memorable vacation.
Fabulous Stress Reducer!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay on The Charles Andrew! It was a definite 'get away from it all' vaca and we relaxed and had some unique fun. We had our little boat to take us to 'shore' and drove the short distance to quaint downtown Bath for shopping and a few very nice meals. The whole area around the cove is beautiful, the weather was perfect and we were like kids on an adventure. Highly recommend it to all you work-alcoholics and local folks, as well!
Everyone was friendly and helpful!!
The views were beautiful; we were there later in the season so it was very peaceful. We did some excellent kyaking and explored Riggs Cove with the skif. We went ashore and walked around Reid State Park then went to dinner at a nearby Inn. Our cabin was bright and sunny, warm and comfortable. Everything was well appointed. The nights were nippy but the gas stoves kept us warm. We also enjoyed lounging the zero gravity chairs after kyaking. We had plenty of towels, hot water, and the shower had good pressure. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to cook in. In all, we could not have picked a better little get away. We have spread the word and hope many of our friends will also try this fun and fine adventure! Thanks Riggs Cove Rentals! Oh, and we enjoyed the "history" hut. I was looking at pictures of the area from so many time periods.
On Georgetown Island in mid-coast Maine, Robinhood Marine Center is a full service marina with slips and moorings to accommodate vessels up to 65 feet. Our Island 40 rental program, initiated in 2010 with Tessie Ann (Home Away 295122), is a means for people with little boating knowledge to experience the peace, beauty and wonder of life on the rivers, coves and bays of Maine.
