Home is just steps away from a private, deepwater dock with 2 moorings. Bring your own boat or kayak or rent one nearby and explore the local waters, islands and nearby Boothbay Harbor while seals surround you. These waters include some of the world's finest striped bass fishing! Explore the woods around you, or hike, bike, and enjoy nearby nature preserves, Reid State Park or Popham Beach. Watch the lobster boats hauling in their catch, while sailboats catch favorable winds along the riverfront. Enjoy bike rides on quiet dirt roads, and eat dinner outside on the deck under the stars or on the screened in Porch. Enjoy the nearby towns of Wiscasset, Bath, and Boothbay Harbor

House and natural garden chosen to be one of only nine featured on 2008 Garden Club of Wiscasset tour of Westport Island gardens and homes. 'Green-friendly' home: grid-tied solar panels on roof provide supplemental power; super-insulated walls, roof and windows keep house cool in summer and warm in winter; floors and ceilings made from recycled wood; and property features native Maine plantings, including abundant wild Maine blueberry plants, with no pesticides used.

Hike or mountain bike (with mountain bikes on the property) on nearby trails and dirt roads and explore island interior. Sit on the dock and watch seals and harbor porpoises swim by. Ospreys and eagles fly by all summer, fishing in the river to feed their young on nearby nests.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I went to this gorgeous home with our two kids aged 3 and 7 and had the best time. The house was even more beautiful than we expected and it was immaculate. The location is quiet and we were able to bird watch, see seals and go fishing. The location is great for biking and walking and also close to so many attractions that the kids loved including a railway for kids, beaches, mini-golf, boating excursions and fun towns within 40 minutes. We will be back.

TREE HOUSE ALONG THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
This property is like a tree house, as you feel like you’re tucked into the trees. The interior is beautiful, not fussy, warm and clean, with lots of wood. There is a long table for family dinners and card games. We spent most of our time on the deck or porch when it rained. There are lots of windows if you head inside and want to still see the view. Our family of five enjoyed every facet of the house. The upstairs, not in photographs, is a delightful retreat. The slate showers are fantastic with multiple shower heads. The landscaping is gorgeous with ferns and blueberries. The care in building the house is evident throughout in its design.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked through the door, I knew we were in for a special treat. The house is absolutely beautiful with plenty of space, both inside and out, for our family to move around. The screened in porch overlooking the river was one of our favorite spots to gather. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds and the three bathrooms allowed all of us to stay sane and out of each other’s hair; and, having three daughters that is a very important selling point! The kitchen was easy to use, with all the amenities you would expect. The location, in relation to surrounding towns and tourist spots, was very convenient. We ventured out almost every day to somewhere new. Overall, our vacation experience was excellent. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a warm and inviting home away from home.

AN AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled in every way with this vacation! The owners were incredibly nice and helpful in helping us plan. The house is gorgeous, immaculate, comfortable and I could keep going on. We did not want to leave. The area was superb for all of us with an abundance of activities, sites, outdoor activities (great boating and bird watching), beaches (loved Reid and Popham) and amazing hidden gems everywhere. We also were thrilled to come back to this house and property at the end of our days and relax by grilling or sitting on the dock with our kids watching the sea life. We'll be back!

BEAUTIFUL HOME, PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home in every aspect. It is clean, comfortable, has amazing bathrooms and amenities, is beautifully furnished and is very peaceful with great water views. We felt as if we were nestled in the treetops! We stayed for a week with two young children and loved every minute of it!

NICE LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
This is a nice home and a great location. We liked it because it was out of town away from traffic and congestion, but yet close enough to some small towns. Perfect for the dogs without having to worry, they loved the dock and were swimming within the first fifteen minutes. The nearby towns were great to visit and I loved being only 45 minutes from Freeport. The house was clean and equipped with needed kitchen items such as a pot for lobsters. Also a nice big grill on the deck. Very peaceful. Love Maine.

GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time! The house is beautiful and was very comfortable for our family of 5. It also included a crib, highchair and baby gates which came in handy with our 1 year old. The house was clean, well maintained, and had everything to make a comfortable stay. We also enjoyed the back deck which included a grill and big table. In the mornings we would take a bagel down to the dock to enjoy the view and the quiet water.
We went on daily adventures to some nearby towns. Some highlights were Boothbay Harbor, Darmariscotta, and Wiscasset. We found some wonderful lobster shacks and did some great antiquing.
It was a relaxing, peaceful, fun vacation.
