Description

Imagine being just 1000 feet from open ocean.  That's where you will be when you choose this cottage for your vacation.  Gulls' Nest is a  cozy two bedroom, two bath cottage sitting at the edge of Little Sheepscot River in Georgetown, Maine.  Imagine sitting in the enclosed sunroom or out on one of the lawn chairs, watching the boat traffic go by; enjoy the birds (eagles, heron and more) or watch a sunrise. With your own deep water dock and float you can swim right from the float or bring a kayak and explore the area.  Perhaps paddle to Robinhood Marina for lunch or dinner or explore Goose Rock Passage.  Mac Mahan Island is across the Little Sheepscot River and is what you are viewing as you look across the water.  

THE COTTAGE
Gulls' Nest has two bedrooms on the upper floor each with a king size bed.  There is a 3/4 Bath with shower on this level as well. Main Floor has the kitchen, 3/4 bath with shower, laundry area, living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen and sunroom. The sunroom has a pull out sofa for an occasional overnight guest or two.  

The sunroom will be where you spend your time with its floor to ceiling windows and beautiful water views, you won't want to do anything but sit, relax and enjoy.  But, do stir yourself to visit the local Farmer's Market for local vegetables, meats, cheeses, fruits, and more.  Or if you are lucky enough to be here when a special event is taking place at the community center, avail yourself of the fun and join the locals as they celebrate some of the areas special days.  Drive over to Reid State Park and spend a day exploring the dunes or the over a mile long sandy beach.  Like to shop?  Bath, Brunswick and Freeport are just a short drive away.  

You can arrange for a local Lobster man to leave you fresh lobsters in the box on your dock (when you put it out).  Doesn't get any better than that.  You just leave the money for him.  He'll let you know the cost.  Information is in the cottage. 

Only a short drive to Five Island Lobster House (one of the most popular Lobster Shacks around).  Sit and enjoy a shore dinner while you watch local Lobster fishermen unloading their catch.  Try dinner or lunch at the Robinhood Marina Restaurant.  Stop at the Georgetown Pottery Shop and pick up a piece or two of local made pottery.  Did you say lamp?  Maybe you need two.  They do truly beautiful pottery.

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 manager 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!

Most of my communication with Cottage Connection was with Lucy. She answered any and every question I had and returned calls when I wanted to know certain things. She was knowledgeable and extremely polite. Cottage Connection Maine found us the perfect place that other websites were not able to do.

We stayed at the Gull's Nest on the Sheepscot River. It was PERFECT for us. Beautiful scenery, nice neighbors, and a deep dock that I tied my boat to for the whole week. I took my 19 1/2 foot Bass boat that has an electric trolling motor with an "on board" charger so I simply ran an extension cord to the dock and plugged it in. My wife, son and I went fishing almost daily and we caught tons of Mackerel and Pollock....sometimes 5 at a time! Lots of fun watching the Osprey catch fish and every now an then a seal would poke his head out of the water. Leo the lobsterman, had his boat next door. I struck up a conversation with him and he supplied us with the BEST lobsters that we have EVER had!!! And to top it off, the lobsters were cheaper to eat than going to MacDonald's!.......it was unbelievable. I am from upstate New York and the people of Maine were so polite and friendly and down to earth! My wife and I visit a different place each year, but this one may be our exception. Last year we went to Cape Cod and caught few fish and was no not nearly as scenic for about the same price.
