The cottage has everything you need for a peaceful getaway. Decorated with natural elements and local art pieces to get you in the mood for this beautiful location.
“Marcella's place is perfect for someone who wants a nice quiet stay in the area but not too far from local attractions. It was very clean and very cozy and well stocked with coffee, tea and essentials needed to cook meals. Check in and out was very easy. I highly recommend Marcella's if you are traveling to the area. If you are coming to the Shelter Institute, it is about a 15 minute drive but off Route 1 which is very busy and loud all night long. I know that because I switched to Marcella's place half way through my stay because staying off Route 1 was so loud.”
Freshly renovated inside and out, the cottage is your private Maine camp. Located on an acre and a half of wooded grounds, and surrounded by forest, the cottage feels secluded, but it’s only a mile to the restaurants, shops, and waterfront attractions of bustling Boothbay Harbor. With hiking trails in the Pine Tree Preserve that adjoins the property and the Lobster Cove Meadow Preserve a five minute walk up the road, you can also explore nature and enjoy the solitude of the woods.
“With no offense to wonderful hosts we've met, Nathan and Kate blew us away. We had far more questions — about the area, about the lodging, about the crazy pandemic times — than usual, and they were always quick to answer and very friendly. But, then they stepped it up and BAKED HOMEMADE BREAKFAST...EVERY MORNING! We enjoyed scones of cherries, rasberries, chevre from the farmers' market, rolls with bacon, blueberry muffins...drool! The place itself is perfect. Perfectly situated a short walk or drive to town (we did both) or to beautiful Barrett Park on Lobster Cove on the historic, and wildflower-strewn property of the McCobb family, said to be the first (or among the first?) Europeans in the area. Inside are all the things you'd want in a small home: a big, wonderful kitchen in which we cooked fresh fish and vegetables and meats from the amazing farmers market and nearby Pinkham's and close-to-nearby Riverside Butcher; a clawfoot bathtub under a skylight for nightly baths; a comfy living room for late-night movies and games and daytime music-making for Niko; and a lovely screen porch where we'd while away the mornings reading and the days, for me, writing. Dreamy place, lovely human beings, lots of salty air and ocean views to retreat in time and forget the pandemic for a while in a clean, private, space.”
Authentic shorefront summer cottage in stunning location, on renowned Indian Point in Georgetown, Maine. Steps from the ocean on a protected inlet, with tide ranges providing sand flats at low tide, scenic blue water at high tide, and everything between. Short walk to many private beaches, tide pools to explore, two kayaks for guests, hiking trails and more. Close drive to famous Five Islands wharf, for freshly caught lobster at picnic tables. Cozy, well-appointed house with gorgeous views.
“Marina has a amazing spot on the Georgetown shoreline. The deck is an awesome feature with its views of the bay: my girlfriend and I enjoyed watching seals chase the bait fish around while sipping coffee in the morning and sunset in the evening while savoring some margaritas. There are several beautiful beaches within a mile of the house. One is an easy walk, the other a two minute drive. Great clam flats all around to grab a fresh catch of steamers. The stripper fishing was choice. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the near islands with the kayaks Marina has available on the property. One thing to be aware of: there are no super markets of the island, the closest is in Bath which is a 25 minute drive. Not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, but less spontaneity with meal planning. This is an amazing place- a true New England beach escape. We hope to return next season for some more Maine fun.”
