The quaint small city of Bath is twenty minutes away with many intriguing establishments in the downtown area, including antique shops, a variety of boutiques and specialty stores, a farmer's market, and several good restaurants. Bath is a world famous shipbuilding city and is host to the Maine Maritime Museum. The museum includes a restored working boatyard, many wonderful maritime exhibits and a vintage sailing ship. The museum offers boat rides on the Kennebec River as well as "lighthouse lovers" and picnic cruises that include excursions into the ocean.
Scenic boat cruises are also offered by several local captains on the island. In addition, power boats and kayaks are available for rent in the area. There are many uninhabited islands and beaches nearby to explore. The striped bass fishing in the Kennebec is excellent, and you can fish from the dock in front of the cottage. Guided fishing trips are available from a number of area guides. For golfers, the area has several excellent public and private golf courses.
There are many picturesque lighthouses close to the cottage. Two are visible from White Rocks. Perkins Island Light is located just south of the cottage, and can only be reached by water. Squirrel Point Lighthouse is directly across the bay from the cottage, and can be reached by a hiking trail.
White Rocks is 10 minutes from Reid State Park, which features the most beautiful beach in the State of Maine. The park includes two beaches, hiking trails, a warm salt water lagoon with lifeguards that provides safe swimming for young children, and numerous tidal pools. We include a free pass to the park with the cottage rental. This pass will admit you to all the state parks in Maine. The Josephine Neuman Wildlife Sanctuary is also located close to the cottage and has miles of hiking trails. Admission is free.
Georgetown is relatively undeveloped compared to other mid-coast Maine communities, and has a small year round population. The island is not a busy tourist area with outlet malls or amusement parks. The pace is a little slower on the island, although there is plenty to do.
Freeport, with its outlet stores (including L.L. Bean), and bustling Boothbay Harbor, with its many restaurants, shops, sailboats, and sightseeing tour boats, are both located about 35 minutes away. There are many other attractions in Brunswick, Wiscasset, Damariscotta, Camden and Rockland (such as seafood festivals, summer theatre and concerts, art museums, etc.) all within an easy day trip from the cottage. And don't forget, the fall foliage in mid-coast Maine is stunning.
If you are looking for peace and quiet, along with beautiful scenery, then we are certain you will love White Rocks Cottage.
White Rocks has a screened porch and a deck that both overlook the water. The cottage is in excellent condition and is nicely furnished with a combination of antiques and modern furniture. Every room in the cottage has authentic pine wood floors. White Rocks has two bedrooms that comfortably sleep four people. Both bedrooms are located upstairs and have water views. The main bedroom has a queen sized bed, and the second bedroom has two twin beds. A sofa bed in the living room has a full-sized mattress and will sleep two people. The kitchen is equipped with an electric range, a refrigerator, a microwave oven, a coffee maker, glasses, dishes, utensils, and pots and pans (including a lobster cooking pot). A gas barbecue grill is located outside on the deck. White Rocks has a separate dining room, a large bathroom with a full shower, and a comfortable living room. The cottage has a TV, DVD player and CD player. White Rocks has electric heat and the bedrooms have overhead fans. We provide sheets, blankets, towels and kitchen linens.
White Rocks is located just steps from the water and has its own dock and cove. The cottage also has a large lawn where you can play catch, croquet, or simply sit in the shade.
