Georgetown (Back River) Vacation Home

Main and Guest House from Water
1 of 22Main and Guest House from Water
Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Georgetown, Maine
Architect designed stone and clapboard house on four acres of woodland. There is a dock where the small boats are kept, on the river or the mud flats depending on the tide. The house is heated by electricity or woodstove. The great room is for dining and reading and is big enough for rainy day activities. The kitchen is behind a fireslate counter and there is a screened porch for fisherman viewing and cocktail hours.

A two-bed guest room on the first floor is next to a full bath and laundry room. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a double bed and two desks, a large walk-in closet and another full bath with separate shower.

Outside the kitchen a deck leads to the garage-guest house with two double bed bedrooms and a sleeping porch with two cots. There is a full bath upstairs and a small kitchen downstairs. The garage has summer beach...

About the neighbourhood
Georgetown has a well-run Country Store 3 miles down the road, an elegant farm market selling fresh vegetables, cheese and wine, and has two marvelous restaurants, The Osprey and The Meetinghouse. Reid State Park is 7 miles away with a fantastic beach between the mouths of the Kennebec and Sheepscot rivers. Just beyond the cut-off to Reid State Park is the tiny town of Five Islands with Georgetown's working dock with our Local Lobster Shack and a fine ice cream window. Views of the Maine Coast cap the many roads and bless the walks possible all over the island.

Off Island are the Maine Maritime Museum, the shops, old captains'houses and the Bath Iron Works in Bath. The antique shops of Wisscasset and Salt Water Farm Museums of Damarascotta and other sea side towns are north o...
Getting around
A bike might help you on Georgetown Island, but a car is almost essential. Route 127 has not alternates, and has very narrow shoulders and fast traffic so cycling is not ideal for the faint of heart.
