White Rocks Cottage is located in a very private setting at the end of a quiet country road in Georgetown, Maine. Georgetown is one of Maine's larger islands, with almost 83 miles of rugged coastline, and is connected to the mainland by a bridge. The island has a general store, a post office, a church, two fine restaurants, an art gallery, a gourmet farm market, and a lobster wharf that serves seafood in the rough. The wharf also sells live lobsters and clams that you can cook at the cottage. Georgetown Pottery, one of the best pottery shops in Maine, is a short drive from the cottage.
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.
