Georgetown, a small island community with over 82 miles of shoreline, is a wonderful location to both vacation and live. Georgetown is a nature and outdoor lover’s dream, with attractions like Reid State Park, the Josephine Newman Sanctuary, and the Ledgemere Nature Preserve. Reid State Park offers picnic grounds and hiking trails, and is home to one of Maine’s most beautiful sandy beaches. Stretching nearly a mile and a half in length, and surrounded by pine forests, sand dunes and salt marshes, the beach is a popular destination for visitors and locals alike. The Maine Audobon Society maintains the Josephine Newman Sanctuary, which is hidden away on Route 127. The sanctuary features 2.5 miles of trails, some of which climb 120 feet above scenic Robinhood Cove. The sanctuary is a popular destination with bird watching.
Georgetown is home to a number of distinct neighborhoods, each of which is a treasure to explore. The traditional fishing village of Five Islands brings together fishermen, local residents, and visitors in a unique coastal village environment. In the quiet neighborhood of Robinhood, residents watch the parade of ships that come and go from the village’s world class marina and boat yard. Georgetown center is home to the library and post office, and typifies a traditional New England town center.
