Comfortable, open 1500 s.f. home on the quiet, north end of Westport Island near Wiscasset, "The Prettiest Village in Maine". Enjoy the day's first cup of coffee from the raised deck while watching the sun rise over the glistening waters of the Sheepscott River. Listen to the whispering pines, lobster boats tending traps and the call of seabirds. Relax on the deck, new 10' x 20' float or take a walk to the nearby lobster coop and carry back dinner. The island has three preserves for hiking and picnicking. You're just a few minutes from coastal Route 1 where you can rent kayaks and canoes, shop for groceries, play at Monkey See, Monkey Do (look it up), visit Bath and Boothbay Harbor, Maine Maritime Museum, eat at any one of several highly-reviewed, nearby restaurants. It's a great spot to launch a day trip to Freeport, Camden and Rockport. Fish, swim or put in your kayak or canoe from the new dock. The hillside leading to the dock is steep, but steps are broad and winding with a bench or two (what goes down must come up). Settle in and enjoy the amenities: wifi, smart tv, large-capacity washer and dryer, fully-stocked kitchen, linens, hair dryer, iron and board, alarm clock, showers and a tub, dishwasher, microwave and toaster oven, ice cream maker, charcoal grill and coffee maker. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and door that leads out to a secluded, seashore garden with Adirondack chairs. The private and spacious loft sleeps two with seating for reading and relaxing. Another first-floor bedroom also sleeps two. Enjoy river views while you dine - rain or shine - from the deck or dining room. There is a well-established and wide variety of shrubs and flowers around the house and here and there on the hillside. Keep an eye out for fox, bald eagles, osprey and seals. Watch the six to 11 foot tides come and go. Westport Isle of View has much to offer. Come see for yourself.

About Tim Murney and Faith Leitner
Faith is a harpist and Tim works in workforce development. We enjoy family and friends, being in and on the water, traveling, Wheatons, DIY projects, good movies, music, books and food. Our two grown daughters have left the nest. We are nearing retirement and looking forward to building some sweat equity into our Sheepscot River getaway .
Tim Murney and Faith Leitner purchased this House in 2016
Why Tim Murney and Faith Leitner chose Westport
We are natives of the Midwest. But, Faith has roots in the Brunswick area and we both have an affinity for the mid-coast region. We have returned to this part of Maine every fall for the past 30+ years. After looking for many, many months, we found this home on the Sheepscot River. It's got lots of potential and improving it has become a labor of love.

What A Find!
Very comfortable and well-equipped home in a beautiful location. Owners Tim and Faith have clearly responded to suggestions from previous reviewers and were great to work with from start to finish. Don't miss the opportunity for fresh-off-the-boat bargain-price lobsters at the nearby lobsterman's co-op!
The house is very beautiful and comfortable. The view is magnificent. Everything was what we expect.
We are definitely will recommend to our friends and family.
Beautiful location, roomy and quiet. Multiple decks with partial River views. Love the Lobster co-op nearby. Master is described as King but it's 2 twins that must be pushed together. 2nd BR is a twin and 3rd is 2 twins. Nice for multiple guests but not for a couples-Easy fix and the owner Tim is so nice I'm betting he will address this soon. Baths are very small and need updating but work fine. Had dock with nice steps down but is only usable at high tide. No outdoor grill-again owner has likely added this. Nice mudroom entry and parking for 2 vehicles. Nearby shopping, activities and good eats with numerous towns to explore. Will return.
