Bayberry by the Sea, built by my grandfather, has been our family home on the water for well over a half century. We know what it takes to be comfortable out on this farthest tip of Georgetown, and we leave you there with it: plenty of kitchenware, an emergency "host pantry" and a selection of spices for that recipe that's missing an ingredient; a basket of extra toiletries if you forget something; and a ready four eggs, block of cheese, and can of brown bread if you need to whip up a quick omelet dinner before unpacking. Nevertheless, there are plenty of empty shelves, drawers and closet space for your gear as well. Such are the comforts of a Maine home, and we want you to feel that comfort the moment you arrive.
