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 Brunswick, Wiscasset, Bath, Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor

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.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY for nature loving family with teenage daughter and grandmother

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Maine with VRBO before but this will be our go-to from now on! This home was set in the perfect natural environment - you felt like you are really away from it all! On the water with so many acres, we weren't crowded by neighbors and the landscaping so carefully incorporated Maine's natural bounty with accessibilty that young and old alike could explore, relax, and unwind! Both wild and culivated blueberry bushes were a real treat! The design and decoration of the house were flawless! Pocket doors, accessible bathrooms, open-space living area with cozy reading spots - all made us feel comfortable at once - plenty of room to share but enough places for privacy without being entirely removed from the rest of the group. Completely conducive to a rewarding and easy mixed-group vacation spot. All furnishings in the house were just as carefully selected - most done by local craftspeople and artisans - a welcome change from your typcial rental where the owner offloads junk from their attic. No detail was overlooked - from the quality bedding and towels to the roll up screens in the windows and luxe appliances - would gladly stay here again and again. We would have been perfectly content to stay here all day - but neary excursions were unforgettable. Don't miss Reid State Park, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, antique shopping in Wiscasset, or whale watching in Boothbay! Maybe my favorite time was on the river in the early morning calm with my daughter and being surrounded by shy but curious seals - surfacing and diving - snorting their hellos. Cooking-in was fun but exploring local eateries was a great time too! I'm not sure which of the local lobster eateries was the best, but we had fun trying to decide. Ships Chow Hall is not to be missed - prepared from scratch by friendly owner and staff - loved the patty melts and fries! We were fortunate to notice a sign for a fish chowder supper at Trinity Episcopal Church in Wiscasset - those ladies know Chowder! Don't miss a trip to Five Islands Lobster Company for their fried haddock. Also stopped by Micucci's Italian Grocery in Portland on the way in for anti-pasti and not-to-be-missed pizza kits for the week!

This home is close enough to where you want to go, but far enough that you can really get away from it all - Perfect in Every Way! My only regret aside from not being able to stay longer - is that we only got to see it in the Summer and couldn't use the gorgeous fireplace!!

This vacation home is spectacular! It was built with love and designed with attention to every possible detail. The materials are beautiful - reclaimed wood and slate are used throughout the home. The exposed beams are the perfect blend of art and architecture. The setting is peaceful and serene. It has been described as having a tree house feel. I agree but this is a very luxurious tree house! The master suite beautiful and the jacuzzi tub is a treat at the end of the day. The home is well equipped and very comfortable. I have stayed at many vacations homes and this one is special.

Wonderful stay in beautiful waterfront home.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in a beautiful waterfront home on Westport Island. Enjoyed kayaking around the island, eating fresh lobster at Red's Eats in Wiscasset, and touring the neighboring towns and islands. House was well maintained and comfortable inside and out. Often sat outside on the deck and in the screened in porch. House was pet friendly and my two dogs were welcome to stay in the home and enjoy Maine with our family exploring the many sights (Maine is very dog friendly). Would highly recommend this beautiful home.

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!
