Coveside Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Coveside Bed & Breakfast, every room has a water view, whether in the main house of the bed and breakfast or the Cottage Guest House. In addition to lobster boats, neighbors on the cove include gulls, herons, osprey, even an occasional seal or moose. Bath, Boothbay, Wiscasset, and the bustle of mid-coast Maine's Route 1 are within easy reach.
You can spend your days actively or relaxed. Start with a gourmet breakfast on the terrace overlooking a special Maine coastal view; then take the canoe for a picnic at nearby Turnip Island or for lunch at one of nearby lobster wharfs. Sunbathe on the dock or at Mile Beach at Reid State Park. Stroll along the shore through nearby nature preserves or take our bicycles to explore the uncrowded byways of Georgetown. Venture further afield to explore some of mid-coast Maine's favorite destinations -- Camden, Boothbay Harbor, or Freeport; or just pass the time away on the terrace, watching the boats in Sheepscot Bay.
There are four guest rooms in the main house and three rooms in the adjacent guest cottage. Each room has a private bath and a peaceful water view down the lawn or through the trees to Gotts Cove and, beyond, to Sheepscot Bay. The bed and breakfast underwent extensive renovation in 1998, both inside and out. The guest cottage was new for the 2001 season. All rooms and public areas are tastefully furnished in a style reminiscent of the Maine seaside summer cottages in the early years of the century.
Breakfast is a major event at our Maine Coast bed and breakfast, emphasizing the freshest ingredients and local produce. Prior to the purchase of our B&B, Carolyn owned a pastry business in upstate New York, preparing elegant desserts for high-end restaurants in the Albany area. She trained at the Cordon Bleu in London and with noted pastry chefs in the United States, and brings her years of experience to Coveside’s breakfast table. Every plate is individually prepared and served, and guests are assured of receiving a different menu every morning of their stay. We make our own jams, fruit syrup, and most of our own breads. Fresh ingredients — meats, crab and lobster, dairy products and cheese, fruits and vegetables — are obtained from local Maine producers, most of whom are certified organic. If we have some notice, we can accommodate most dietary restrictions of our guests.
Home-made cookies, coffee and tea, and complementary beer and soft drinks are available to guests throughout the day and evening.
