Surround yourself with breathtaking river and forest views when you escape to this secluded Georgetown home, a beautiful waterfront retreat with a wrap-around deck, an abundance of Midcoast Maine atmosphere, and a private deep water dock on the Sasanoa River.
Gorgeously situated only 200 feet from the water's edge on the cove known as both the Sasanoa River and Robinhood Cove, this two-level home is ideal for kayakers, boating enthusiasts, foliage watchers, and families in search of quiet and scenic relaxation. The cove is saltwater, and since it has calm waters it's a family-friendly option. You'll be just five miles from the village of Georgetown, nine miles from the historic shipbuilding city of Bath, and 10 miles from the lovely shores of Reid State Park.
Whether you're looking to explore the Midcoast by boat, by car, or on foot, this expansive piece of peninsula property provides wonderful access to serene waterways and lovely seascapes.
With towering knotty pine ceilings and three walls of windows, the bright and airy great room was designed to maximize the stunning river view. Curl up in the window seat as you watch for wildlife in the surrounding woods, or sit down with a book in the warmth of the wood-burning stove (wood is even provided).
Spend a day sailing past the historic Cuckolds Light at the mouth of the Sheepscot River, and return home to gather your family on the sofas for a night in front of the flatscreen cable TV, DVD player, and VCR. There's WiFi so you can upload pictures to show your friends what amazing things you're up to.
With the renowned Five Islands Lobster Co. just eight miles away, you'll never be far from freshly dug steamers, local mussels, and live and cooked lobsters. And you'll have plenty of space to prepare them in the full kitchen, which offers generous cabinet space, a variety of cooking tools, and even a dishwasher to help clean up.
Enjoy breakfast as a family around the dining table for eight before moving outside to bask in the magnificent outdoor space. Walk down to the dock to launch your sea kayak, play a game of cards at the patio table, or simply enjoy the river view from the expansive deck.
The knotty pine decor continues in the two bedrooms and the loft space, which combine to accommodate as many as six people. The light-filled master bedroom features both a queen and a twin bed, and opens onto the deck to enjoy wonderful sunrise views. The main floor guest room has two full-size beds, while the upstairs loft space offers a queen-size bed.
You'll find one full bathroom and two half-baths on the main floor, as well as a private washer and dryer to keep your summer wardrobe fresh.
Beloved by fishermen, birders, seafood enthusiasts, and artists, Georgetown offers a quiet and beautiful glimpse of life in Midcoast Maine. Paddle your kayak down the Sasanoa River to reach the Josephine Newman Audubon Sanctuary, a 119-acre expanse of marshland, meadows, and avian habitats.
You also won't want to miss out on the stunning shoreline of Reid State Park, where you can stroll in the sun on Mile Beach, observe endangered least terns, and enjoy unforgettable views of the Seguin Island Light Station, the Cuckolds Light, and Hendricks Head Light.
