Due to allergies, this is a non-pet-friendly home with no exceptions.   ____________________________________________ Merwick Cottage is perched atop a rise overlooking the Sheepscot Bay.  Enjoy panoramic views and ocean breezes from the deck and its generously windowed interior.  Look for the Osprey nest on the channel marker in front of Merwick Cottage, close enough to watch the nestlings grow up over the summer.  Much like Merwick's owners, the Osprey's keep coming back - just like we hope you will!  You will love how the rich history of the Five Islands section of Georgetown blends with the contemporary style of Merwick Cottage. When we asked the owners if there was any information they would like to share with future guests, we received these wonderful responses: __________________________________________________ 'My favorite place to walk is Ledgemere Road, just above the Five Islands wharf, running along the Sheepscot Bay for almost a mile. There is a small beach and you can walk out on the granite ledges where the surf crashes.   The woods around are pine, and in the summer Ledgemere Road smells of balsam.'    'Sometimes, as we got older, the water from the ponds permitted a longer frolic than the ocean.  Charles Pond, which is within walking distance, is cool and deep.  Sewell Pond, off of Old Stage Road, and a short hike from the road through a nature preserve is a favorite, rope-swinging place to play.' 'My favorite time of day is dawn, when the sun breaks over the horizon - lavenders, blues, gold's, and scarlet's silhouette the trees, boats, and rocks.  The songbirds' songs echo across the water from the islands.  The full moon on the water is hypnotizing and relaxing.  Sometimes you can get both - a rising sun and a setting moon.' 'My very favorite thing about Maine and especially Five Islands is the smell of the fresh ocean air mingled with pine and roses.  I suppose I could be a millionaire if I were able to bottle that and sell it.  There is nothing like it in all the world.' ____________________________________________________ From Merwick Cottage you have stunning views of the fishing village of Five Islands, the Sheepscot Bay and out to the open ocean. Head on down to your private dock and float with over 200 feet of rocky shore-front to enjoy watching the comings and goings of lobster boats and elegant yachts.  Bring your own boats or rent locally for a spectacular day of exploration along this beautiful stretch of rocky coastline. Fish, swim, float or simply relax. Watch the moon rise over the bay from the cozy living room, glimmering on the surf crashing off Crow Island.  You are within walking distance of the award-winning Five Islands Lobster Co. and, coincidentally, Merwick's kitchen has the needed pots and crackers to serve up a bountiful lobster dinner! There are miles of hiking and biking trails in Georgetown and more on preserved lands throughout the Mid-coast area. ________________________________________________ Head over to Reid State Park to enjoy over a mile of sandy beaches, into Bath for shopping, souvenirs, and restaurants or explore the many museums and galleries in the area. A week will fly by before you can see all there is to see, so you better book two! ________________________________________ PETS PERMITTED? No, pets are not allowed at this property due to owner's severe allergies. LINENS INCLUDED? Yes, linens are provided for your stay __________________________________________________ THE HOUSE: Merwick Cottage is a two-story contemporary home overlooking Sheepscot Bay and the open Atlantic beyond.

The expansive lawn slopes away from the house and down to the private dock, float and 200’ of rocky shoreline.  Merwick Cottage was built on an acre of land that has been in the family since 1935.  The first Merwick Cottage was burned in the 1934 forest fire, and the second, known as Rockmere Cottage, was built in its place.  The contemporary Merwick Cottage replace Rockmere in 1993.  The names Rockmere and Merwick date from the early 1900s _______________________________________________ The master bedroom has a Queen Bed and sliders to an open deck with that spectacular view.
