Why Joseph Smith chose Boothbay Harbor Area

Windy Hill is named for the breezes which softly whistle through the large Pine trees surrounding the house. It is 200' above sea level, at the crest of a forested ridge. Georgetown is a large island (12,000+-acres) with an oceanfront feel, with a large summer population of artists, out-of-state summerers, lobsterman, and retirees.

What makes this house unique

Quintessential Maine coastal experience!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have loved, loved, loved staying here at Windy Hill. So much so, that we looked at buying a house in Georgetown. We loved the large rooms and layout. Our house situation hasn't worked out so well. We have put offers on two houses that ended up not working out for various reasons. Thanks for everything. Our stay at Windy Hill was a great introduction to Maine for the family, and maybe why we found it so hard to find a house! :)

Maine forested peace

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice decorated home with plenty of beds and baths. We really enjoyed the screened porch which was free from mosquitos and flies😏. I would definitely recommend this house. Also the owner Joe was very pleasant to talk and arraign our stay. Thanks Joe;))

Most relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time as a family, reconnecting and visiting the most special spots in Maine. The house was perfectly located close to Reid State Park and Popham Beach, we couldn't have asked for more!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Windy Hill is all that is described! We were referred to Windy Hill by local residents and truly enjoyed this lovely "Home Away From Home!" The rental process was very easy and Joe (homeowner) was very accommodating with all our requests. Windy Hill provided all the amenities we could ask for a family of nine and even our family dog named "Stitch"! We definitely encourage including the additional cabin for large families. The house was fully equipped and met all our needs, from the ready made beds, house linens, large kitchen, spacious sleeping quarters and the Reid State Park Pass. We absolutely loved the peaceful setting and privacy of the location! Thank you Joe for sharing your home and contributing to the joyous time we experienced while celebrating a family wedding. We hope we have the opportunity to do it again in the near future!

Property as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Windy Hill for 2 weeks. This is an excellent rental for a relaxing vacation in the Maine. We loved the screened in porches and the quiet of the Maine woods. Everything in the house worked well. We will consider this rental again for our next vacation in Maine.

There were a lot of horseflies at Reid State park. This may not be a problem all year. Reid is a beautiful park to visit. If the horseflies are bothering you or someone in your family, check out Popham Beach State Park. It is a 40 minute drive and there were almost no horseflies. The parking lot a Popham fills up between 11:00 and 2:00 on some days, so keep that in mind if you decide to make the trip.

The only complaint about the rental was the lack of a gas grill. A gas grill would be a nice addition. There was a charcoal grill, however. This worked out ok.

We have stayed in many vacation homes. This is one that meets and exceeds what was in the listing. The photos cannot show how much at home Windy Hill will make you feel.
