This home schedules its arrivals and departures for Saturdays during the summer season. Also, due to allergies, this is a non pet friendly home with no exceptions. A treasured family cottage at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean with 180 degree views. This two bedroom, one and a half bath open concept cottage with vaulted ceilings is well equipped and ready for you to unpack your suitcase and begin your Maine Vacation. Reached by car, Georgetown Island is all about the water. This cottage is located in the small private community of Indian Point. As guests of this property, you will enjoy access to several sandy beaches, nature trails through marshes, tidal sand flats and miles of gorgeous rocks with spectacular oceanfront views of the two lighthouses the Cuckolds and the Seguin Island Lights, along with views of Damariscove Island. You can simply relax inside or out at this cottage and from the living room, dining area and lying in bed can watch the surf, sea creatures, boats of all sizes including working lobster boats. At night, you can be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves slapping the rocks, the smell of the ocean air and the moonlight bouncing off the water. Master bedroom with double bed and a full bath next to it with a tub and separate shower. Comfortably furnished throughout, linens included, washer and dryer. Lots of space for two generations to be able to enjoy getting together. Due to safety concerns, the property owner recommends that no children under the age of 16 stay at this home.
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO Like most houses along the coast, this one has been positioned to take advantage of the view. The majesty of the Atlantic is right outside your door. Walk down the path to the rocks to dip your toes into the water. One of the Association Beaches is just a short walk from the house (visible in the photos). Large expanse of sand for sunbathing or building sand castle. Bring your kayaks and launch them from the beach or the nearby boat launch area. This island is nestled between the Kennebec and Sheepscot Rivers and surrounded at the point by the ocean. Visit the nearby Georgetown Farm Stand for fresh fruits and vegetables and other Maine Products (meats, cheeses, jams, jellies and more) or Five Island Lobster Pound for fresh seafood (eat in or bring it home to cook). Enjoy Ice Cream from the stand at Five Islands. The Georgetown General Store provides small meals, snacks, milk, bread and more to save a trip to Bath.
THE HOUSE Typical cottage style with weathered shingles on the outside and a coastal feel on the inside. Perched atop a knoll with the front yard being age smoothed rocks that tumbled to the sea, this will become your home away from home for many visits to come. Imagine sitting at the dining table watching the sun rise over the ocean as you enjoy your morning coffee or take it outside to the deck or down on the rocks. Watch eagles, osprey, gulls and more as they glide past you. Fishing boats and sailing vessels go by all day long.
First floor has a large entry, wonderful living/dining area that stretches across most of the waterside section of the house; a master bedroom where you can wake up to the sights, smells and sounds of the ocean right outside your window; a full bath with tub and separate steam shower and the kitchen complete this floor.
Upstairs there is a TV area overlooking the living/dining area (this area has a porthole window to bring that view inside to you) and futon; half bath, large room with a sleeping alcove. The upstairs bedroom area has many windows to the view as well as books and games with which to enjoy yourself.

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION? Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993. Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore, when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make your vacation perfect!

GEORGETOWN, MAINE Georgetown Island lies between the mouth of the Sheepscot River and the Kennebec River in the Gulf of Maine. The Abenaki Indians called the island Erascohegan, meaning “goo spear fishing”. The island was purchased in 1649 from the Indians for a hogshead of rum and some pumpkins. The first settlement was built on what eventually became known as Parker’s Island. The Island was named for Fort St. George in 1716 by the Massachusetts General Court. While staying in Georgetown be sure to visit the Georgetown Farm Stand for great fresh vegetables, herbs, Maine delicacies including meats and cheeses, jellies and jams; Five Island Lobster Pound for great seafood and ice cream; Reid State Park if you don’t have enough with the beautiful beaches at Indian Point; Georgetown Pottery for beautiful locally made pottery and of course the local general store for bread, milk, beer and wine, or a small meal or snack at the counter or dining room.
