Beautiful views of the Maine coast from the front porch. The cottage faces Fort Popham and is located where the Kennebec River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the screened-in porch. Peace and solitude can be found here or enjoy the sunshine at the small beach within a short walking distance. The cottage looks across to Gilbert Head on Long Island. Gilbert Head was home to artist, Stephen Etnier. His wife Betsy published her account of these years, "On Gilbert Head", in 1937.
For those who want to explore other parts of Georgetown, take a 10-minute drive to the beautiful beaches and sand dunes at Reid State Park or the quaint fishing village at Five Islands. On the wharf at Five Islands enjoy a delicious shore dinner of lobsters and clams while watching the boats go in and out of the harbor. On the island of Georgetown (connected by a bridge) you will find a country store, two restaurants, marina and a farm stand with fresh local produce, cheeses, wines and much more.
A twenty-minute drive up Route 127 is the historic City of Bath with its rich maritime history, many old sea captain homes and a quaint Front street recently selected as one of the top 10 in the country. While in Bath, visit Maine Maritime Museum as well as many stores, wonderful shops and restaurants. A 40-minute drive from this unique compound is the outlet shopping village of Freeport, home of LL Bean's flagship store. Antiquing is available 30 minutes away along Route 1 in Wiscasset. For day trips, you will want to do some sightseeing in Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta and the Old Port District of Portland…all one hour away.
