Why Joseph Smith chose Georgetown
Windy Hill is named for the breezes which softly whistle through the large Pine trees surrounding the house. It is 200' above sea level, at the crest of a forested ridge. Georgetown is a large island (12,000+-acres) with an oceanfront feel, with a large summer population of artists, out-of-state summerers, lobsterman, and retirees.

We stayed at Windy Hill for a long weekend to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday, and it was wonderful. The house was everything you see in the photos, PLUS! And the cabin was also very cozy. The grounds and facilities were stellar. It's private and feels secluded but Reid State Park, Popham Beach, Georgetown and Bath are all easily accessible. The kitchen was fantastic and well-equipped. Wifi worked well. The wildlife stirred all around. It's a beautiful place that's been tastefully updated and very well-maintained. Joe was very responsive with check-in details, which were smooth and easy, and he left detailed instructions on everything we needed to know. We enjoyed lounging on the full wrap-around screened porch (the cabin and master bedroom have screened porches too!) with plenty of space, accommodation and world-class local recreation for all ages - kids up to grandparents! We loved it! Thank you Joe.
Great Property for a Maine Vacation!
This house (compound?) was the ideal setting for a Maine vacation for our extended family. We had a family of four, family of three, and two grandparents for a total of 9 guests, three of them children. We fit into the main house plus separate cabin perfectly! (There were even a pair of unoccupied bunk beds.) I feel the house looks better in person than the pictures on the site. In particular, the wrap-around screen porch is larger and more comfortable than the pictures look. We all gathered as a group most evenings in the corner of the screen porch, gathering 6 or 7 chairs for the adults around a table for appetizers. We were able to sit all nine of us comfortably around the kitchen table for dinners. The kitchen is well appointed, and large enough for two cooks to share the space. The spacious master bedroom also has a private screen porch.
The only negative is that the stairs up to the sleeping loft of the second cabin are very steep, closer to a ladder. They are fine for older children or an adult couple who are nimble. Just don't expect older grandparents to climb up there. The grounds are very private, surrounded by pine forest. There was plenty of space for our children to run around, play, and explore without bothering the neighbors. The property is so large, we could not even see the neighbors from the main house.
There is a country store down about one mile down the main road with all the basics, and a good selection of beer and wine. The store also carries lobster and will cook it for you to take out.
Reid State Park is close by, but we chose to spend more time at Popham Beach State park, which was only 30 minutes away. The owners include a pass that covers all state parks, which saved us well over $50 per day in fees. The town of Bath is just 15 minutes away with shops, supermarkets, and several nice restaurants. Five Islands Lobster is only about 10 minutes away on the waterfront, and is a great place for seafood or to grab an ice cream after dinner.
If you're looking for a private getaway property for a larger group or extended family, this compound is perfect! We hope to be back!
Like being a camp!
Had a great time at Windy Hill. Joseph is great to work with and made our staying here a smooth transition. Great yard and fire pit! Just a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach!
Thank-you for your kind review, however I must say it's a 5 minute drive to a beautiful beach, not walk. Simple mistake🙂
Spacious and comfortable
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Windy Hill in Georgetown. The property was perfect for our multi family trip to Maine to celebrate my nephew's wedding. The houses had everything we needed and our only regret is that we stayed for only a weekend. Perhaps we'll be back again to more fully explore this part of Maine
Just as Promised
The home and cabin were just as promised. The setting was lovely and just off the grid enough to allow us to explore both downtown Boothbay Harbor and Popham Beach! The house was well equipped and well kept. Thank you for accommodating our large group comfortably!
Maine forested peace
It was a nice decorated home with plenty of beds and baths. We really enjoyed the screened porch which was free from mosquitos and flies😏. I would definitely recommend this house. Also the owner Joe was very pleasant to talk and arraign our stay. Thanks Joe;))
This property is surrounded by 1000's of acres of protected Maine coastal forest habitat, all within a 10 mile radius, offering spectacular hiking opportunities. Robinhood Marina Center is 1 mile distance.
