Location, location, location. The moment my family saw the house from the road, everyone gasped. We knew right there that we would be treated with a fantastic view and we were not disappointed. Every sunset is magical from this house. My wife and kids ran out to see the sunset almost every day and they enjoyed every minute of it. The interior of the house is quite spacious and there are many nice little features that may interest you. My mother-in-law was quite intrigued by the old fire place in the kitchen and what appears to be a bread oven built into the wall of the fire place. My kids and their cousins loved the house for a completely different reason - it is perfect for playing hide-and-seek. They even played it one last time while we were getting ready to leave. It is really close to Reid state park and we got to enjoy the park every day while we were there. The little beach next to the tennis court is quite nice too when the tide is low enough. Five islands was a short drive away and we had a wonderful family dinner there. The host Clara was really helpful during our stay and she would always answer our questions via text right away. Overall a perfect home for a family vacation.
Our extensive family stayed here for a week (my husband and I, four kids, sister and boyfriend, two dogs and grandparents) and it was the ideal Maine vacation we'd all been hoping for. The house is beautiful -- historic, but very nicely modernized with a big sunny kitchen, spaces to read and play games, and lovely bedrooms. Tons of interesting nooks and crannies for kids and adults alike. Plus, the setting is spectacular -- a secluded, quiet spot nestled at the end of the Georgetown peninsula. Finally, Clara was a phenomenally gracious host who made us feel welcome and helped to orient us to the Georetown peninsula. We highly, highly recommend.

Our family spent a magical week at the Overlook and quickly fell in love with Georgetown. Kennebec Point is a special place with beautiful views of the water - from waking up to water views from the bedrooms to watching the sun set over Heal Eddy from the porch. We especially enjoyed exploring the mudflats, digging our own clams (and then steaming and frying them) and kayaking around the Point. The well appointed kitchen was a wonderful place to cook our family meals and the fresh lobsters from the Georgetown Country Store (caught that morning) were the best we'd ever had. We played soccer on the front lawn, tennis on the courts and used the fire pit most nights, even cooking a campfire dinner one night which the kids loved. And we enjoyed our day trips to Reid State Park and Monhegan Island. We wished we could have stayed longer. Ask Clara to share her suggestions and ideas for where to go and what to do - she's a wealth of local knowledge.

"I had the pleasure of working with a lot of very talented vendors to create this beautiful styled inspiration shoot at Maine’s newest Wedding Venue located in the Mid-Coast, in a quiet town of Georgetown, with amazing views and a peaceful, relaxing vibe." - Brittany Rae Photography
Had a glorious time at Overlook at the Point. Fabulous sunsets, beautiful home with a fascinating history and plenty of room for entertaining. Clara has really thought of everything from tablecloths to bug spray. Even though we don't have young kids, we appreciated her collection of children's books and games--she must be a great teacher! The house is infused with generosity. Can't wait to return!
