Additional Location Information
White Rocks Cottage is in a very private location at the end of a quiet country road in the Town of Georgetown. Georgetown is actually 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, a pottery shop, 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. There is much to do at the cottage and in the area, such as swimming, fishing, kayaking, power boat rentals, scenic boat cruises, biking, hiking, nature walks, antiques shopping, and beachcombing. You won't have time to do them all!
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.
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.
