About Fern MacMillan

The Vintage Beach House at Sagamore Terrace is owned by family. It was build in 1940 as a summer cottage and later winterized and upgraded to an all year round residence. The original extended family continues to visit and use the house on a regular basis.

Fern MacMillan purchased this house in 1940

Why Fern MacMillan chose Westbrook

This home and beach has been enjoyed by four generations.

What makes this house unique

The front of the house faces a large open green space. The walkway to the beach cuts down the middle. Therefore traffic is behind the house and provides a large safe area that is quiet and rural. There is very little traffic and therefore provides a great place for walking or running. All residential in nature and provides beautiful views of Long Island Sound to and from the beach and neighboring streets.

Informal but comfortable and clean. A proper Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach House. One very minor problem that was quickly fixed by the owner and we were enjoying our stay. It fits like an old pair of shoes. Comfortable and easy to put on. Did not need to look for anything. Well stocked and everything was easy to find. Would rent again at anytime.

Even better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

5 dads playing golf in the area stayed here 10/20-10/23. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, and the location is perfect. It's quiet and relaxing but still very convenient to many restaurants and stores, and you can't beat the short walk to the beach. Fern - the owner - was very responsive and helpful with all our questions, and we hope to stay there again next year.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time. House completely equipped with everything needed. Spotless when we arrived. AC was on and worked well on the 90 + days. Extended family 3 - 72 enjoyed the beach, much like Maine. We launched the canoe several times and explored the salt mash on the far left of the beach. Older children enjoyed swimming out to "Whale Rock" and jumping off at high tide. Fern's welcome book was very complete and helpful. Neighbors very friendly with suggestions also. Wonderful time had by all. Be sure to return next year.
