About Inder or Jane Cheema
We are the Cheema's...Jane and Inder. One from Canada, and the other from Kashmir, India. Came to Southport in 1978 in search of a home base as we worked mainly overseas, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. Retired from ExxonMobil in 2000. Children and grandchildren are with us every summer, so life is great.
Inder or Jane Cheema purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Inder or Jane Cheema chose West Boothbay Harbor
Close to our home which is also on Southport; sounded like a challenging post retirement project, which it was.
What makes this Apartment unique
Serenity of Southport Island, with the hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor and associated tourist activities, available at arms length or a 7 min driving time. Southport has it all : kayaking, boating, sailing, walking/hiking, biking or simply lying on our many decks, in the sun or rain, or whatever.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Would do it again!
Our family had an excellent vacation! This is such a relaxing area. The home was beautiful and the owners were an amazing couple. We would stay here again without a second thought!
Early fall month is great for oysters, lobsters and no crowds
We have stayed here in past in smaller apartment but took the larger unit to enjoy the views and porch. The property is over road from a tidal inlet but more importantly, a two minute walk to Robinsons wharf and restaurant. No driving so ok for a glass of wine with Glidden Point oysters and whole lobster. The apartment is fully stocked and a home away from home for couples. Well recommended and hosts are gracious and helpful
With two bedrooms and bathrooms the large unit was good for the four of us (two couples).
Pros: Close to town, no sign of the owner (but he answered emails quickly), free wifi great for staying in touch, lots of hot water.
Cons: The front room is right next to the road which gets quite noisy early in the morning (city dwellers might not even notice it), lots of stairs (healthy people shouldn't be bothered by it).
Be aware that as of 7/2011 ATT has no cell coverage anywhere around Boothbay. Attempts to use our smartphone with Gvoice were stymied, but you may have better luck with Skype. We gave up and just used a Verizon cell which had full bars.
Great Place to Stay
This was perfect accommodation and would recommend it to anyone.
The owner was lovely and was more than helpful with everything.
Southport is an island about 6 miles long and 2 miles across at its widest. Access is by means of a swing bridge which opens on the half hour for boat traffic. The serenity of this island setting is augmented by nearby Boothbay Harbor and its varied marine activities, restaurants, art galleries, shops, antique stores, live theater, movie theater, aquarium ,botanical gardens,etc. For families with children the nearby beach at Hendricks Head is fun and picturesque.Biking enthusiasts have various possibilities on and of the island. Small boats, kayaks, and canoes can tie-up at our dock from where access to the open ocean and surrounding islands and waterways/coves is feasible and safe. There is much to be explored on the island...a quaint seaside church, the landing at Newagen and its bold ocean views, hiking trails, a historical museum, a town library, and a couple of picturesque harbors. Both formal and informal dining is within walking distance of the apartment.
Golf: A challenging and well maintained 18 hole golf course is within a 10 min. drive; includes golf school/academy. Sailing School : one of the nations best is at Cosy Harbor on Southport. Tennis classes : available just of the island at Juniper Point.
