Don't take it from us! Take it from our guests: BETTER Vacation Rentals provides a great vacation rental and service at a special spot in midcoast Maine.

Here's what Patricia had to say about her stay at our cottage on the water in Maine: "Melinda made the reservation process clear & simple ; she demonstrated real follow-through and flexibility. Additionally, the family's thoughtfulness was evident throughout the cottage. We enjoyed how clean the cottage was and how many thoughtful details had been arranged--incl. a mosquito shield net @ the door and a small laundry drying rack--in case of rain. 

 The location afforded us a chance to explore Georgetown in greater depth than we had in earlier years. The pass for Reid State Park was esp. helpful--what a lovely place that is. We were delighted to see the various books highlighting possibilities along the coast--and inland, too. Far too much to actually accomplish this September. 

We appreciated the recommendation to try Gray Haven Inn's restaurant, The Blue. Delicious. As ever, Robinhood Free Mtng House provided a special treat dinner. Those cream cheese biscuits: wow. And the folks @ the Georgetown Country store were friendly and helpful--good coffee, too! Of course, the Georgetown Lobstermen's Co-op provides the freshest seafood possible. Baskets of lobsters were off-loaded from the boat as we waited. Plus, Annabelle's ice cream there on the wharf is perfection plus. Try some. 

Most of all we enjoyed just sitting on the deck watching the fog descend & rise, noting the lobster boats coming & going, observing the industrious chipmunks & various birds passing through--just plain fun. If you want to be closer to townlife this might not be your spot, but if you love seacoast granite, observing wildlife & seabirds, ever-changing seawater and a bit of marvelous alone time, this is just perfect."

Mid-Coast Maine Waterfront Vacation Rental

Midcoast Maine RentalOur cottage in the idyllic Five Islands area of Georgetown provides a classic Maine experience, complete with lobster pots in the cove and kayaks on our dock. Our vacation rental is a cozy three bedroom, two story gambrel style cottage with sleeping for up to seven people: four adults and three children. We're on five wooded acres with a good size yard for lawn games, 200 feet of waterfront, a dock, float, and mooring. Some guests have said that "it's like sleeping on a boat with more comfortable beds." 

This waterfront cottage is available Memorial Day through Columbus Day. The prices range from $750/wk to $1400/wk. We've been renting our mid-coast Maine vacation rental since 1999. Each year we spend time maintaining, upgrading, and replenishing our waterfront vacation home so that it is always in excellent shape for guests (and for us)! This is one of the most sought after coves in all of Georgetown for it's protected water, deep water dock, and mooring-perfect for boaters.

Close to the sandy beaches of Reid State Park, we include the State Park Pass for your convenience, as well as the town sticker for launching your trailer-able boat, or skiff at the ramp in Robinhood Cove or on the Kennebec River. You can "park" your boat right at our float & dock which has six feet of water at low tide, or for larger vessels, we have a super mooring in the calm cove on the Little Sheepscot River, right across from the summer colony, MacMahan Island.

About Georgetown Maine

Georgetown Maine is in the mid-coast area of Maine, just 20 minutes from historic Bath. Georgetown is home to one of Maine's finest beaches at Reid State Park. The village at the end of the island (connected by bridges) is known as Five Islands and the harbor has been named "the prettiest harbor in Maine." Georgetown is home to a vibrant fishing community with a few wonderful shops lining the main route into town between the pine trees, including Georgetown Pottery, Maine Sweets, Five Islands Farm, and the Georgetown Country Store. The Five Islands wharf is home to the lobster co-op and Five Islands Lobster; it's there that you can pick up fresh from the sea boiled lobster, fried clams, or my favorite: the Jenny Special (haddock/crab sandwich), and Annabelle's hand made ice cream. Georgetown is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise with the Josephine Neuman Sanctuary, hiking trails, protected coves, and boat launches.
