The Sou’Wester North has some of the best views in West Pont! A wonderful feature of the house is the sprawling deck that provides our guests with gorgeous sights of the harbor, ocean and islands. Adirondack and lounge chairs give you a place to relax, read, paint, or take a well deserved nap. It is a great place to entertain your family and friends. You could have a barbeque using our gas grill, or you can have a lobster-clam bake while watching the sunset. Kayak rental available.
New Dishwasher installed! Season pass to near by Popham Beach. After many request we now offer sea kayak rentals on site for exploring the coast and harbors. Both singles and tandems.
Your next relaxing vacation awaits you in one of the most scenic and unspoiled historic fishing villages on the coast of Maine! Come and enjoy coastal living in a waterfront 100 year old dance hall! Once a weekend destination in the late 1800’s to mid 1900’s for the locals to dance, gather and visit, the Sou’Wester has been restored to accommodate vacationers appreciating beauty and solitude. You will be greeted by the crisp salty smell of the ocean, the hum of lobster boats leaving for their days work and the friendly “hellos” from the local “West Pointers”. Relax to awe inspiring vistas of Casco Bay, the harbor and nearby islands on our wrap around deck. Leave the cares of the world behind you as you surround yourself in West Point’s breath taking beauty. Our goal at West Point Vacation Properties is to make your vacation one to remember for years to come. We are dedicated to providing you with quality service and personal attention from the start of your vacation to your actual stay. The Sou'Wester was converted from a early dance hall into an inn in the 1970's then in 2000 into it's current state into a large duplex property. With the decks the entire property is about 9600 sq ft. The properties are seperated by our maintenance space and the decks are seperated by dividers and nothing is shared between the two properties.
The many large windows on the inside of the Sou’Wester North showcase the views seen on the outside. The open floor plan allows for comfortable seating and movement. To make your vacation spot a “home away from home” we have supplied our guests with household items both useful and convenient. The kitchen is stocked with items you would need to cook for your family and friends. Dishes, pots, glasses, utensils, a gas stove, microwave, refrigerator and garbage compactor are available for your use. A large dining room that seats 12 is perfect for entertaining. Local general stores and lobster pounds are nearby to provide you with everything you need to make delicious meals for your family. For your added convenience and entertainment we also provide our guests with cable TV, internet, digital phone and a washer and dryer.
On the second floor of the Sou’Wester North there are four comfortable bedrooms that sleep 8 and two baths. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. A sliding glass door leads you to a private balcony that overlooks the lovely harbor. This is an ideal spot to welcome the morning with a cup of coffee. The three other bedrooms are designed to accommodate the needs of families. One bedroom has a queen size bed, one has a double and one has bunk beds. These three bedrooms share a full bath.
We hope that you enjoy the Sou’Wester North! It is a perfect spot for a quiet retreat or family vacation. From enjoying the spectacular ocean views to the many outdoor activities you can do here, West Point is the ideal location for your vacation.
This was a great experience. The house is beautiful and so are the views. The kitchen is exceptionally well stocked with settings for 14, including wine glasses, cutting boards, mixers, colanders, larger serving bowls, pitchers and pretty much anything a person could hope to find in a rental home, and the gas fireplace along with the spiral stairs leading to the third floor lookout were a hit with all our guests. I should also mention that the personal service was exceptional, with an owner that answers his own phone.
We had trouble getting into the house. Was told the key would be in the lock box and was given explicit directions. But the box was empty; standing open. We called the on-site manager at both numbers but he did not answer. We then called John and was told to go around the back of the house because the patio door would be open. It was an ordeal because you had to go down a road and up through the walkway from below. Well, thankfully that door was unlocked. The key was inside on the entryway table.
Floors downstairs were dirty - couldn't walk around in bare feet. Otherwise, house was clean. A little inconvenient that there was no bathroom downstairs.
Bill, the property manager, was helpful and welcoming. My 3 kids loved Cat Cove. Hope to stay again next year.
We just returned from a week at this rental in the fishing village of West Point. It is a lovely location, and house is well appointed. Would definitely stay there again.
Pros: Great property. HUGE kitchen and lots of space for family dining. Beautiful view from upper deck off master bedroom. Friendly neighbors.Comfortable beds. Nice décor.
Good property manager, Bill Martin, lives close by and was very helpful.
A couple of cons: 1. Living room is a little small. Only seats 6 but we were able to pull dining room chairs over for our movie night. 2 Not enough furniture on the decks esp the upper deck....where the great views were for coffee or cocktail time.! 3: I would really list this as a sleeps 8. Yes, , there were roll away beds but the only place they would fit were in the ( absolutely lovely) Master Suite with the King sized bed.....or out in the upper hallway...a little awkward...esp for bathroom sharing. There are only 2 bathrooms and one is an en suite in the Master bedroom. So I think sleeps 8 is a more accurate description...and you could still end up with 6 people sharing one bathroom.
If you are looking to "get away" from it all, this is the spot to do it. The quintessential Maine fishing/lobster village, truly the only sounds are seagulls and the gentle hum of small boats coming and going. Waking each morning to a cool sea breeze, we'd grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the rising sun on the large property decks. The property was perfect for our group, ranging from small children to several adults. The local Popham beach and quick access to freshly caught lobster made for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
