Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Westport Island - Booking 2015!

4 Bedrooms main cottage, attached unit sleeps 4 or 5

Step Back in Time.. This 1800's restored Vintage Summer Cottage sits up high enough on the rocky shoreline to allow SPECTACULAR VIEWS of surrounding Islands, Working Lobster Boats and Harbor Seals. There is also easy access to the water and a private dock. Hendrick's Head Lighthouse and the open Ocean are directly south and easily visible. The wonderful southeastern exposure allows stunning views of the water, wildlife, boating traffic and the sunrise from every window! Airy and spacious rooms with cottage furniture and antiques. Central heat. A large wrap around porch on the West side of the cottage, to watch the sunsets. There is a private deep water dock on a beautiful peninsula overlooking a cove to the north of the cottage and a mooring for your boat.

The main cottage is 4 bedrooms, (3 Queens and a King) and a single bed on the enclosed porch. The attached unit has a full kitchen, a waterfront deck and it sleeps 4. It is accessible from the main cottage or from a seperate outside entrance. See Owner's Website below for more pictures.

For EVENT PACKAGE look at www.homeaway.com/3843107

A Boater's Paradise!: If you have a boat...Bring it along! There is a mooring in the cove which will accomodate a 32 foot Boat. Kyak rentals are available just up the road and can be delivered and picked up. The Sheepscot Bay area is a Boater's paradise, with wonderful destinations close by...

Cleanliness!: I have had the same reliable wonderful cleaning gal for 19 years. The cottage is always spotless and mattresses are new, comfortable and completely covered with high quality mattress protectors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have so many beautiful and touching reviews and letters from from guests who have stayed at my cottage since 1989, and I have saved them all! They are in the cottage "guest book". I could notbegin to choose which ones to publish on this site, so come and spend some time on the island and you will be able to read them all and add your own!

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME

  • 5 out of 5
We have been forturate enough to stay in this wonderful cottage, 8 times, in the past 9 years. It is our favorite place to go and relax. The views are breathtaking. The home is comfortable, charming, clean, beautifully decorated with antiques and beachy cottage furniture & decorations. The wildlifeat the house is wonderful, from the Seals on the ledges to the Cormorants, wild Turkeys, Geese, Eagles, Cardinals, Jays and other small birds. We have even had the pleasure of seeing Deer, Beaver & a Porcupine!

We especially like to have a fire in the outside pit, during the cocktail hour, watching the Lobstermen hauling in their daily catch. The fresh Lobsters are wonderful!

The house is well outfitted with everything you need, especially in the kitchen. There is room for everyone to have some privacy. The sun room off the kitchen is my favorite spot, to just sit and enjoy this quintessential Maine experience!!
The owner, Ellen, is wonderful. She responds quickly to all questions and is friendly and kind. Onc you speak to her you wil feel like you have known her forever.
We already have 2015 dates booked!

My favorite place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
I absolutely love this property! From the moment I walk into the house, I feel relaxed and at peace. The views are gorgeous, the decorating eclectic and fun, the amenities like the fire pit, tire swing and books are wonderful. This house is great for families and we have stayed many times and never wanted to leave. Can't wait to go back.

Exceeded EVERY Expectation

  • 5 out of 5
...lifelong best friends --- both of us with three young children eight and under-- all we wanted was an escape from the rat race and peace and quiet. we didn't need frills or entertainment…the pictures were so beautiful on this website but surely it wouldn't be as perfect as it seemed? so we went with "realistic" expectations….
WELL WE WERE BLOWN AWAY!!!! we kept asking each other "who found this?" "how did we get so lucky?"

everything everyone has said on here is true. i have to agree with the person who said don't underestimate the guest cottage- it's fantastic. our children would all pile in there on the beds and watch a movie while we kicked our feet up in the attached main house. all of the picturesque towns are just simple short drives away…with small children we didn't want to be in the car a lot and we never were..all the drives were so doable.

we use vrbo and home away regularly and ellen is like no other owner we've ever had. she is so helpful and seems to truly want her guests to have such a wonderful time.

this listing is accurate, the pictures are accurate except they don't do the charm of the inside justice. i would like to add that i have terrible allergies in "old houses" and this "vintage" home is not stuffy and dusty AT ALL! i hope that tidbit is helpful to someone b/c that can make or break a trip.

trip of a lifetime!
thank you ellen!

Wonderfully Peaceful

  • 5 out of 5
We came here with a group of friends, and it was an amazing, wonderful week. The house is so incredibly charming; quintessential Maine coast home. It was so quaint and cozy with gorgeous views of the River. Very clean and well equipped. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the room off the kitchen and enjoying the view. A really lovely retreat from the world.

More then I expected - simply put AMAZING!

  • 5 out of 5
LOVED IT, so glad we came across this property and it was available for our long motorcycle journey! The web-site is very accurate in the descriptions and the property is well maintained and decorated beautifully. The duplex attached to the main house can be described as a studio apartment, with additional beds. Ellen, the owner was phenomenal; always very quick to respond to my endless emails as well as direct calls. There was a group of 10 so countless questions and Ellen was very patient and happy to answer them. Even though we consisted of a large group we had plenty of space and room if some alone time was required. The beds in all rooms were very comfortable with a large size kitchen which offered a great sun room to its side. As well as a formal dining room there was a TV area if you were going thru withdrawals, and off of this room was a sun room facing the front of the house. The back yard where we spent a lot of our time enjoying each others company offered some incredible views. In the evenings we'd all gather our lounge chairs and surrounded the fire pit, where we cooked our own lobsters with the available lobster pot! It was an awesome experience going out to the islands co-op where we bought an entire bin of live lobsters for an incredible price! There is also the option of going out on a lobster boat! We also loved what we named "Seal Island" and two of the guys ventured out with the canoe which is on the property. The seals were bobbing up and down starring at the two of them, which thankfully we were able to see with the binoculars that were provided. The island is truly beautiful and some of us took the opportunity for morning walks, loving the fresh air. It was also great having a dock as some of the group did a bit of fishing with the available fishing poles. This is a perfect place if you want to be a bit secluded but close enough for a drive to the grocery store as well as to Booth Bay Harbor. Here you can experience several small stores, as well as fantastic restaurants and while your their book your whale watching cruise. "Fisherman's Wharf" offers great meals with outside dining. Honestly I cannot say enough about our experiences in Maine, the group loved it. I can however say that without having the perfect accommodations trips can go bad. With that being said this property is the perfect place and absolutely enhanced our vacation. I would recommend this HOME (as it never felt like just a house) to anyone!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 out of 5
Had a wonderful vacation! Beautiful and quiet surroundings, yet close to tourist type environment. I would post pictures of the attached part above the garage, we were nervous it would be a dark, dingy storeroom, but it was the best room of all!

Location

Car: necessary

The bridge to Westport Island is located 3 miles down off Route one, between Bath and Wiscasset. The cottage is 7 miles from the bridge. Our 3.5 acres of vast green lawn, stonewalls and 800 feet of deep water frontage offer privacy and spectacular views of the Maine Coastline and Sheepscot Bay...looking out to open Ocean. The island itself has only a General Store, Country Inn and Town Hall, but we are close and convenient to all of the attractions that the midcoast has to offer. Sheepscot Bay is a Boater's Paradise, with beautiful islands and easy access to the open ocean by boat.
