OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY BEDROOM

Phippsburg House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

The Casco Bay Cottage is a beautifully, remodeled home with spacious lawns and gardens. There is a large deck with ocean views and a balcony off of two bedrooms on the second floor. The first floor of the house has hardwood floors and an open floor-plan. The living room has french doors that open up onto the spacious deck. There is a bedroom on the first floor right off of the living room with a queen size bed. There is a dining room and sitting area adjacent to the living room. The kitchen has everything you'd need with top of the line appliances and granite counter tops. A full bathroom completes the first floor. A washer and dryer is located in the garage off of the mud-room area. The second floor contains four bedrooms and a bathroom. The first bedroom has a skylight and a full size bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a sliding glass door that leads to a balcony. The third bedroom also has a queen bed and a glass door that leads to the balcony. The fourth bedroom also contains a full size bed

The Casco Bay Cottage: The location of the Caso Bay Cottage in West Point makes an ideal “home base” for any vacation you choose. For those who “need to get away from it all” you can spend your entire vacation in West Point. Guests can lazily relax on our decks overlooking the ocean, or perhaps take a short stroll to Cat Cove for swimming and shell collecting. Cat Cove is a great location to launch your kayaks for a day of exploring nearby harbors and islands. A short trail through the piney woods leads to a secluded rocky area that is fun to explore. Among the rocks are tide pools where some of the locals learned to swim. Look for sea creatures that are trapped in the pools! Bring your fishing poles for an early morning of fishing. The rocks are a good place to cast your line in. Be sure to keep a look out for eagles, loons, cormorants and seals! A Maine vacation must is fresh seafood for a lobster or clam bake. You can take a leisurely stroll down to the local lobster pound for the fresh catch of the day. New Dishwasher for 2013!!!

History: For those of you who enjoy more history and more activity, West Point and its surrounding areas provide just that. West Point is one of the oldest and scenic fishing villages in Maine. Many of the locals are descendants of the original fishermen who settled here. Close to West Point is historic Popham. Popham is one of the earliest English settlements during Colonial America being settled in 1607. Though it was unsuccessful it led to later settlement along the Maine coast. Popham State Beach is a beautiful 500 acre beach of white sand. It is definitely worth a visit. When the tide is out, you can walk across the beach to a nearby island. Fort Popham, from the Civil War years is close by and is ready to be explored.

The nearest city to West Point is Bath, “the City of Ships”. Maine’s first ships were built here in this area around 1607-1608. If you are interested in shipbuilding the Maritime Museum offers a glimpse into Maine’s boat building past.

Shopping and exploring: Quaint shops and restaurants make Bath a fun day trip. Boat rentals can be found in Bath for touring or fishing the Kennebec River. Golf courses are also in the area. To the north of Bath is Boothbay Harbor. It is another excellent day trip for vacationers! It has shops, restaurants and antiques. Whale watching, Puffin watching and lighthouse boating excursions are available at the wharf. Brunswick, another historic town nearby offers shopping, restaurants, Bowdoin College and the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum. L.L.Bean’s flagship store is located south in Freeport. It is opened 24 hours a day and is a good place to go on rainy days. Freeport also has many name brand outlets. Portland is about an hour away and has many historic sites, shopping and great restaurants as well.

After many request we now offer sea kayak rentals on site for exploring the coast and harbors. Both singles and tandems.

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this property July 2013 and had a wonderful stay. The location is perfect. A short walk to the water for kayaking and such, and a nice neighborhood of homes. All the neighbors were really wonderful to talk to when we'd pass them walking or biking around the neighborhood.

The beds were comfy, and the place was very clean. It's an old cottage that was remodeled to be very nice. The kitchen is pretty well stocked, with most anything you'd need. However, I think with almost any property I've ever rented, I'd recommend bringing one really sharp knife and one great skillet from home if you can. We loved the area, and the kids loved the basketball hoop and the surrounding area to run around, etc.

Our only concern was that the house has a system to provide clean water, but several times over the last couple of days, we had some quality issues. The manager (who lives next door and was super-fast to respond) came by and checked things out. It only happened randomly and I know they were going to check it out further after we left, but I thought I should at least mention it.

Otherwise the property was perfect and I would certainly recommend it. John, the owner, was very easy to work with and we were really happy with our stay. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, we really do appreciate our guest reviews and feedback. We did find one of the water valves in the wrong postion. Bill closed off the valve and we do have great water again. Good advice on the knives we will replace them as well. We look forward to seeing you all back in the future.

Thanks Again,
John

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
9 friends recently stayed at the Casco Bay Cottage for a 60th birthday celebration over the Columbus Day weekend. All of us were so pleased with the accommodations; the cottage was immaculate and very comfortable. It truly is much nicer than the photos indicate! The large deck outside is great for group dinners or just hanging out. The cottage is literally a 3-minute walk to a gorgeous cove with large rocks for watching the sunrise. Popham Beach State Park is a 10-15 minute drive away and the beach is sandy and great for long walks. At low tide, you can walk out to an island and climb the rocks to the top for a beautiful view. We discovered an excellent restaurant in Bath and visited the outlets in Freeport. Bill and his family, who manage the property, live next door and were very friendly and helpful. They responded immediately to our discovery of a cracked coffee pot by giving us an entirely new coffee maker within minutes. We will definitely be back and are exploring the possibility of renting all 4 of this owner’s properties for a family reunion next summer. Highly recommended.

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5
Nothing but good things to say about our time in the Casco Bay Cottage. John was more than helpful with all of my questions and the house was perfect upon our arrival.
Tons of room for my children to play inside and out while the adults had plenty of room to sit and relax. Gorgeous ocean views from the decks and Popham Beach is right down the road. We truly enjoyed every moment we were at the property and would certainly recommend staying here to friends & family.

COZY COTTAGE IN QUAINT FISHING VILLAGE

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Nestle in a little fishing village, very quiet and relaxing. A 2 minute walk to a private cove full of seashells and seaglass. State of the art kitchen appliances and granite coutnter tops. Extremely comfortable beds for resting after a full day of activity. I would definitely consider renting this property again.
