Wiscasset Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This Suisse chalet style cottage located on Westport Island was built on Clough's Point right on the Sheepscot River. With over 400 ft. of deep water frontage and it's own boat dock it also has spectacular views of the village of Wiscasset and historic Fort Edgecomb. The living/dining area has a vaulted ceiling with 40 ft. of glass affording a dramatic view of the river. It is also fully furnished with cottage and antique furniture. Just minutes up the road is the North End Lobster co-op where you can pick up the freshest catch from the local lobstermen. Enjoy the daily sights of working lobster boats, the osprey nesting in the buoy, wildlife, boating, and the sunset light on the Eddy Marina just by walking out on to the deck or down to the dock.

the best spot in Maine

  • 5 of 5

stock up on fresh corn, tomatoes, blueberries and lobsters on your way in and you won't want to leave the house for the entire vacation! Its like living on the bow a ship with the sheepscot river beneath you.

Brand new appliances, well stocked house with everything you need. Plus, towels and linens are provided.

Absolutely spectacular.

Third year...even better

  • 5 of 5

We love our time here more each year. This is our big vacation every year and it we anticipate it months in advance and savor the memories for months after we return. For us, this is the great big week-long SIGH that keeps us sane for the year.

Thank you, Laurie, for the loan of your beautiful cottage...and the sanity. (I think I might have convinced Bill into two weeks for next year. Fingers are crossed!!)

Perfect Maine vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was the best VRBO vacation house we have ever rented. The deck and views of nature were spectacular. We spent hours watching the osprey nest, herons, seals, lobster boats, etc. The dock was an ideal launch for kayaking trips. The house itself (only wanted to be there after the mosquitoes came out) was beautifully decorated and had every needed amenity.

Best vacation - ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing vacation at Laurie's lovely cottage! It is a beautiful location and the cottage had everything we needed. We spent a lot of time sitting on the deck or the dock just relaxing by looking at the beautiful scenery. We loved - ate there three times! The cottage itself was just perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you Laurie for making your cottage available on Home Away!

2nd year...and can't wait for next year!

  • 5 of 5

Laurie (and her family, I imagine) has done such an amazing job creating a spot that is so guest friendly. Sure, the location is stellar - right on the water, lovely views, private, easy to get to Wiscasset and Bath, beautiful cottage...but, there are so many other details that just make the visit comfortable. You will find a beautiful and well-appointed kitchen, comfortable beds in rooms that are always cool as they are at the back, shaded part of the cottage (we appreciated this when it reached 90 degrees outside), quality patio furniture that makes lounging on the deck seem the best and only choice...and on. We have rented a number of places in Maine, but this is the one we want to visit year after year. Thanks, Laurie!!

Favorite spot...ever!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know how other people want to vacation on the Maine Coast, but here's our list:

a great water view; a private location; easy access and comfortable for my parents; accepts dogs; good deck and water access

This cottage checked all of my boxes and so many more that I wasn't expecting! Laurie, the owner, was great to deal with...just lovely. And the cottage was exactly what my husband and I needed to completely disconnect (without having to really disconnect since there's wifi, cell coverage and cable). The cottage is so beautiful and comfortable. We spent most of the our time on the deck...and did not regret it at all. We are ready to book for next year...thanks, Laurie!

Just 4 miles from the village of Wiscasset, 'The Prettiest Village in Maine' where there are wonderful antique shops to explore. Make sure to stop by Treats for a special wine and cheese then head to Red's Eats or Sprague's for a lobster roll. Take a day trip to Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Rockport, Camden or head to Portland's Old Port and then Freeport for outlet shopping. Take a walk on Clough's Point Conservation trail or just relax on the deck with a good book. This is truly a special, wonderful and peaceful spot for those who desire to be at the water's edge.
