SUNRISES FROM EVERY ROOM OF THIS BEAUTIFUL DEEPWATER RETREAT

Westport Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps 13+

If you want to get away from it all, this waterfront home is what you are looking for but still only 20-60 minutes to shopping, historical sites, quaint villages, forts, and beaches. This area is truly a boater's paradise with many rivers and islands to explore with a secure deep-water private dock and mooring, or just enjoy the water from the large deck with southern exposure, private deck from first floor master bedroom suite, beach access, fully equipped kitchen for preparing those gourmet meals, or the gas grill for barbecues.

The island does have a boat landing or you can just sail or power your boat over to a secure dock or mooring to explore the many sites surrounding Westport Island such as the Boothbay Harbor region, Five Islands, Fort Popham or the other many surrounding islands and attractions. Great restaurants are a short boat ride away. No boat no problem enjoy watching the lobster-men at work, sailboats, seal watching or just relax and read a good book on the large deck. Located on a private road for walks or bicycling or take advantage of several walking trails located on the island. Enjoy beautiful sunrises from any room in the house and if you are here during the full moon you can enjoy the spectacular moonrise.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The home, views, and yard are much lovelier than the photographs. We (a group of ten ranging in age from almost three years old to 98 years old) had a wonderful time, taking day trips (Bath, Wiscasset, Morse Mountain, Popham Beach, local forts, Boothbay Harbor, e.g.), and putting together wonderful meals in the evening. I think we maybe turned the tv on once. The outdoor spaces (screened in porch, decks, docks, patio, pathways) are just as lovely as the house.

SPACIOUS AND LOVELY. PERFECT FOR US.

  • 5 of 5
This house is more spacious and lovely than the photos can show you. Our extended family had the best vacation together yet. We were delighted with the beautiful views, the wonderful kitchen and dining facilities, the dock, the decks, screened porch, large bedrooms. We had to pinch ourselves to believe we had found such a gem. It really exceeded our expectations by a lot! The layout is perfect for extended families with a variety of bedtimes. All of our great cooks loved the kitchen and the extra bar/eating area with a drinks fridge, ice machine, and extra sink. The grill on the deck and the lobster pot were in constant use. The open kitchen allows the cooks to be social without having others in their way.
The owners were very helpful and friendly. The house is very clean and well maintained.
We rented kayaks and brought our own canoe and kayaks, so a lot of time was spent on the water. With 6 children ages 10 and under, there was never a dull moment. We had lobster nearly every day, usually from the Co-op. We swam at the small beach within walking distance, and were usually the only ones there. The layout of the house is such that you can keep the children in view easily, and can have clear rules about where one needs to wear a life jacket.
There is so much to do from the house, that you would never have to leave it, and never have to wait for late risers or nappers to wake up before you get out to do things. Nevertheless, we went to Reid State Park for more waves, and to Booth Bay Harbor for the Cabbage Island Clambake. The Botanical Gardens were very much loved by the children, and some day the adults hope to see more of the gardens since we get stuck every year in the children's garden, from whence it is impossible to pry the children loose!
If only the house were available for our dates next year!! We will never find another locale as perfect as this one.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son, and I, go away with another couple on vacation every year. Each year we alternate who picks the location/cottage. When we arrived here I joked to them we could not go on vacation again, cause we were never going to find a better place. It is fairly secluded, and very quiet, and the 5 of us, didn't come close to using all the amenities and services the house offered, We cooked out on the deck, cooked in the kitchen on the one rainy evening, plenty of room for us all to watch tv at night. Caught mackeral off the dock, and even slept in a morning or two. it's near lots of spots to take daytrips to, and they were paving the road on our last day, so smooth traveling. It is about a 20 minute ride out to route 1, but I consider that a plus. Watching the full moon relecting off the water at night while beating Keith at cribbage was another plus. We had humming birds visiting us on the deck, and lot's of deer wandering around at dusk, and night. Doris is super easy to deal with, and this was one of our best, in not the best, vacations we ever had. Also made it to the Windsor Fair one day. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a large (almost too large for our group) quiet, well equiped, spot on the water (saltwater). Taste of Maine was our favorite restaurant we found ( for dinner) Moody's is still first choice for breakfast/lunch. The Flemings, Adreanis

GREAT HOME AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation. We had everything we could possibly need. It was a very relaxing atmosphere in and outside. I enjoyed the open living area because everyone was together, the deck with comfortable seating to enjoy the great views, relaxing by the fire pit in the evenings and the master bedroom with breezes from the ocean for comfortable sleeping. Our young adult children (in their 20’s) especially enjoyed daily kayaking to the islands for great views of the seals. We rented the kayaks from Seaspray, who delivered and picked up the kayaks at the house. They also enjoyed their experience at the Monkey See, Monkey Do attraction, which is an obstacle course including zip lining. I enjoyed just sitting on the dock doing a little fishing. We went to see the lighthouse and made a trip to Boothbay. A couple of evenings we got lobsters from the North End Lobster Co-op. We couldn’t get the lobster burner going. We held down the button for the time the instructions specified, but the burner wouldn’t stay lit. It was no problem though as we cooked the lobsters on the stove top. Anyways, we had a great time!
Thank you Doris!

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION HOUSE!

  • 4 of 5
These pictures don't lie! The house has a great open concept with plenty of room for the whole family. The large deck and patio area were great to sit and soak up the sunshine or just enjoy the view. Watching the seals that came to sun themselves each day on the rocks just off shore from the house was a special treat! The only downside was the fact that the house is a 20 min. drive from town. Doris was wonderful to work with and very accomodating. We hope to come back again next year.
