Amazing oceanfront location on a point; water on three sides of the house; facing Small Point Harbor to the east; Atlantic Ocean to the south and Casco Bay and islands to the west; decks; fully equipped kitchen; sauna. Launch your sail boat or kayak from our property (pocket beach on our property). Five miles to Popham Beach; Eleven miles from Bath. High speed internet, DVD, VCR. Two miles from golf; two miles from organic farm stand; 1/2 hour to Brunswick, with great shops, restaurants, summer theater (at Bowdoin College) and art museum (also at Bowdoin). Our mooring can accommodate boats as long as 35 feet.
Point House feels so comfortable! Games, puzzles, great beds, all you need for cooking. Outside- incredible sunsets, star gazing, the waves lulling you to sleep. We were an extended family of 12 and felt there was plenty of room. We all loved the private beach, tide pools and sea glass collecting, as well as kayaking. Need to go exploring further?- Maine Maritime Museum is close by, as is Popham Beach State Park. Don't miss Totman Preserve. With 12 people the water storage is stretched to max so you must conserve. So glad we found this Maine gem!
This home was amazing and I would heartily recommend it to my closest friends and family. Aside from the magnificent views, it was a great "travel base" to nearby attractions including spa, parks, kayaking and great restaurants. It afforded us a peaceful and convenient stay and was conducive to lazy afternoons as well as staying in and cooking our own fabulous lobster dinners! Do not want to forget to mention the neighbor whom we contracted to take us on a water tour and gave us a demo on lobstering!
Upon arrival we were all blown away by the magnificent views looking out at the many islands off West Point, Maine. We soon knew this was going to be a relaxing, peaceful week listening to the ocean surf beating against the rocks 30 feet below us. Watching the tides rise and recede, the lobster boats coming and going and the kayakers passing by was a daily occurrence. The house is large enough to cook and enjoy a home cooked seafood dinner for 8, or find a quiet spot to sit and just enjoy a favorite book. I especially enjoyed the outdoor hot shower to wash off the salt water—quite invigorating!!
The house was outfitted with all necessary kitchen appliances, pot and pans, and utensils to cook large meals. Although there is a TV we never used it. The Wi-Fi did come in handy as the cell service is spotty. The land line did allow us to make phone calls when necessary.
The bedrooms are large and beds very comfortable and all bedrooms have many windows which provided breadth taking views and allowed the sound of the surf to serenade us to sleep.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the large home, many comfortable couches and chairs, game room with Foosball table and sauna. There is also a wood burning stove, we didn’t need it, and a game table for those who want to do one of the jigsaw puzzles.
We have decided to return next year and can’t wait to head north for another week in the Point House on the Maine coast.
Although this house sits in a small community circle it is remote, sitting literally on the end of the rocks.
The views from the house are wonderful! Upon arrival the owner contacted us to make sure everything was in order and welcomed us. I was slightly disappointed in the cleanliness from the prior renters, but it was nothing that would deter me from leasing again !
I certainly appreciated the option to bring my dogs, they had a great time and our one dog did NOT want to go home!
We found a local reserve ~ Totman's ~ that has a great beach and just requires a quick stop at the town hall for a free permit.
If you're looking for all the lobster places to be open I would suggest that you plan your trip prior to Labor Day, we found a lot of them closed. However, we still found plenty of the famous Maine Lobster to enjoy.
This was truly a peaceful vacation, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back !
Overview: My (large) family rented both of the owner's properties for a week in August 2012. I can honestly say I've never been anywhere so fantastic in all my life, and my family feels very lucky to have had the opportunity to stay here.
Pros: Not only were we able to accommodate lots of kids and adults, we had an amazing location and two beautiful houses to do it in. I was lucky enough to stay in this house and the photos just don't do it justice. You are literally on top of the ocean with views for miles. It's peaceful, quiet and makes you never want to leave. We will definitely try to come back in the future.
Cons: The water system can be a bit finicky, and the entire county lost power one night which made for an interesting evening with so many kids, but none of it hindered the beauty and wonder of the location one bit.
We rented this house for two weeks along with my daughter and grandchildren and it was absolutely a wonderful vacation! Every room is very spacious and dining out on the terrace is very relaxing and quiet.The view gives the impression of being on a ship.Our vacation was totally calming and relaxing. Pat..
West Point Village is a small fishing village, on a point facing Small Point Harbor, the open ocean, and Casco Bay.
