The Georgetown Peninsula

A visit to the Georgetown Peninsula, just south of the Boothbay Peninsula, makes for a wonderful day trip from Back Bay Cottage, or a worthwhile detour when traveling to Boothbay on the way to or from Portland.

Georgetown B-2Steamers at the Osprey

We started our tour of the peninsula with a seafood lunch at the Osprey Restaurant in Riggs Cove. I recommend reserving ahead if possible.
