Coveside is a stylish Bed and Breakfast in Maine. We are open year-round* for your enjoyment. Coveside is set on a rocky cove, near the hamlet of Five Islands in Georgetown, Maine. Every guest room has a view of the working lobster dock across our cove, and beyond to Sheepscot Bay. In addition to lobster boats, neighbors on the cove include gulls, heron, osprey, a resident eagle, even an occasional moose. We strive to be environmentally friendly in all aspects of our operation and have been designated an “Environmental Leader” by the State of Maine, and recognized as a “Green Leader” by TripAdvisor. Our location is secluded and serene, yet the attractions of Boothbay Harbor, Freeport, Camden, and the bustle of Maine’s coastal highway, Route 1, are within easy reach.
There are a variety of activities to fill your days. After a memorable breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the bay, you might launch your kayak from our dock to explore the miles of coves, islands, and waterways in our area; or walk the stunning beaches, headlands, and woodland trails at nearby Reid State Park. At our bed and breakfast in Maine we provide bicycles for our guests to wander the uncrowded byways of Georgetown. A canoe and two kayaks are also available, perhaps to paddle to the Five Islands wharf for a lobster roll or shore dinner. Venture further afield for the shopping, dining, or cultural attractions in the mid-coast area. Back at Coveside, you can just pass the time away on our terrace, porches, or waterside chairs, reading and watching the lobster boats come and go. Televisions are available in the common room of each building (there are no television sets in guest rooms) and there is an exercise room available for guest use.
Since the summer of 1998, Coveside B&B has welcomed more than a thousand visitors to this quiet cove in mid-coast Maine. Bob Doucette recently purchased the B&B in 2019 following a career as an Association Management Executive with several large professional societies in Washington, D.C. A native of Maine, he grew up 30 miles from Georgetown and has many fond memories of day trips for lobster, the beach, and summer vacations on this special part of the Maine Coast.
*The Main Building is open year round. The Cottage Building closes for the Winter in November and reopens in March.
