Stunning panoramic views abound from this charming & spacious cottage just a short stroll from a beautiful private sand beach. Your most stressful moment may be choosing from which window to watch the endless colors and textures of surf, sky and multitude of rocks.
Bowsprit has its name because its vista and proximity to the sea are as if perched on the bowsprit of a schooner, a perfect setting for a family holiday or romantic getaway. As guests in the small private community of Indian Point, you will enjoy full access to several sandy beaches, miles of beautiful rocks, tide pools teeming with critters, a nature preserve, and even a boat launch on a sheltered bay.
A spacious master bedroom, with private half-bath and queen bed, is just down the hall from a full bath, second bedroom, and separate den. The heart of this 1,200 square foot home is the airy, window-filled living/dining/kitchen with spectacular ocean views from every window.
Romantic Hideaway or Family Cottage: Drift to sleep with the murmuring of the surf and wake to a sunrise dancing across the water. Stay up late for spectacular starry skies, the flashes of vigilant lighthouses, and romantic moonlight sparkling on the sea. For lovers of all ages Bowsprit is that special place to be away from it all with that special person in one of the most beautiful spots in Maine.
Or make this your home base for a memorable Maine family vacation with beach days and explorations here at Indian Point interspersed with trips to the mainland for museums, shopping in Freeport, poking about the shops in Boothbay Harbor, a schooner trip, charter fishing, antiquing, concerts and exhibits.
Why Get Back in the Car?: Without even searching for the keys you can swim and play at nearly empty sandy beaches, find a shipwreck lost among the beach roses, explore woods and salt marshes, kayak tidal rivers, watch birds or perhaps playful seals & dolphins with our telescope, identify anemones and starfish in the tide pools, indulge in beach novels, or rekindle that latent interest in watercolor painting.

The electric power at Bowsprit is 100% emission-free electricity from Maine Renewable Energy. It comes from a combination of low impact Maine hydro power produced in Maine and wind power from the Northeast. It costs more, but we believe it is critically important.
