Phippsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to the Seaside Cottage!. It is a lovely cottage that has amazing views of the harbor, nearby islands and the open ocean from its decks. This is the ideal location for guests who require solitude and beauty. Honeymooners, painters, writers and photographers would do well here for inspiration from nature. The cottage has one bedroom that has a queen size bed. A futon in the living room sleeps two more people. The cottage is comfortable with a full kitchen that has everything you need entertain family and friends. Kayaks available for rent.

The Sea Side Cottage was remodeled this Spring (in 2009) complete with all new furniture and open for the first time this year. We are starting late and have lowered the price for this year because of our late start. The views are unbelievable from every room of the cottage, whether you are inside or out, in your bed or on the couch you can see the open ocean and nearby islands. Just relax and enjoy one of the most peaceful places around.

Take a short walk down to Cat Cove for shell collecting and swimming. Cat Cove is an excellent site to launch your kayak for a tour around the harbor and islands close by. A trail through the piny woods will lead you to a secluded area that is fun for exploration. Among the rocks there is tide pool where some of the locals learned how to swim. Be sure to look for sea creatures in the tide pools. You can fish from the rocks, or watch the lobster and sailboats go by. Keep your eyes open for eagles, loons, cormorants and seals.

For those vacationers who need more adventures, there are many exciting things to do near West Point. Phippsburg has many wooded walking trails that are both easy to hike and pretty. Historic Popham Beach, settled in 1607, is a short distance down the road. The 500 acre beach is worth a visit for those who enjoy smooth, white sandy beaches. Popham Fort, from the Civil War years, is close by and ready to be explored. Sebasco Resort is also close by, and has a golf course, spa services and several restaurants.

The nearest city to West Point is historic Bath, “The City of Ships”. Maine’s first ship was built here in 1607-1608. If you are interested in ships the Maine Maritime Museum offers a glimpse into Maine’s boat-building past. Maine’s boat-building future can be seen at the Bath Ironworks, where some of the most sophisticated Navy ships are built today.

Hi John-
We had a wonderful vacation, thank you. The cottage was perfect. We would definitely consider coming back to West Point and I see you have other properties that could accomodate our entire family. We've been going to Nantucket the past couple of years, but I will check in with everyone to see if they want to go to Maine instead next Spring.

So I'll be in touch. And thanks again!

I just spent the last 6 days at this cottage. I had a wonderful time despite the weather. The cottage was cozy and I had the best sleep that I've had in quite ahwile. The area is quiet and very restful. The views are wonderful. Stay here and reclaim yourself!

most relaxing vacation ever

My best friend and I did a girl's trip to Maine. Ths was one of the best trips ever. We were so relaxed and loved every minute of it. We did not want to leave. All the people we met were so nice. The Seaside cottage was perfect for us and we spent several hours around the corner at the cove looking for sea glass with some of the other vacationers. We spent many hours on several of the beaches that were not to far away. We put almost a 1000 miles on our rental car checking out the scenery. It was amazing. I lovedlistening to the waves at night. We will definitely use HomeAway.com again. This was a very peaceful quiet place to stay. My only complaint was the linen arrangements were not explained very well. I think for the amount of money, you should get more towels than one set for a week, when you do not have a washer or dryer. We thought it would be easier than taking them with us when the airlines charge so much for luggage. Overall a great place to vacation.

What a wonderful location and neighborhood. Not far from Popham Beach and Bath for shopping. Lucky to have chosen the Bath Octoberfest/Autumnfest weekend to stay and the festivities and celebrations were fun. A nice place to relax and unwind. Simple, clean and pleasant accomodations. Plenty of pots, pans, and dishes provided if you need them. Two (2) nice decks to catch the view, sit back and have a nice read.
