About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 10

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.

Beautiful house in a great vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

Its the fourth time we visited Phippsburg area but the first time at this property. We knew that this area offers great views and many options for outdoor ventures. However, the stay at Sue Wester made our long weekend more enjoyable. The house has a spacious living area, beautiful balconies on both floors overlooking the ocean, and is tastefully furnished and decorated. Bill, the property manager, greeted us on arrival and made sure we knew he was there to help us. He gave us good suggestions for lobster and restaurants in the area, kayaking and hiking trips. We enjoyed kayaking to Tottman Cove beach, and then South East towards Hermit island. Bill helped us with an extra free pass to Popham State beach (a must see attraction). Thank you for making our getaway a most wonderful and memorable time! We can't wait to return.

Beautiful Maine Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and well cared for property. There are great ocean views off the decks. There is a small beach in a cove nearby and kayaks for rent. The town of Bath is several minutes away. The local area is quite and peaceful.

Awesome vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful vacation at this property. Large kitchen and dining room easily accommodated our group of 9. Awesome views off the deck of the inlet and islands. Local Phippsburg beach was great at high tide and awesome for our chocolate lab to chase seagulls at low tide. Popham beach was beautiful and easily accessed. Inexpensive and incredibly fresh lobster were purchased and enjoyed by many in our group. We enjoyed our golf outing at the Bath Golf Club. Rented the kayaks which were a great way to explore the surrounding area, and get up close to seals. Beds were comfortable, and kitchen was well equipped. The property manager was always available and eager to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Would definitely consider returning to this property in the future.

Impressive looking first floor but....

  • 3 of 5

Arrived to a wonderful looking 1st floor but had to request that they come clean the tile floor and kithchen counters. They did but in spite of that floors were still dirty, we all remove shoes coming into the house and we all had filthy looking feet after walking around the house. We left the place cleaner then we found it.

The bath situation was a bit of a challenge. Master bed and bath and then 3 beds left to share the other bathroom. Master bath was very large with a small shower and a low door frame that i hit my head on a few times entering and exiting.

Was great having the washer/dryer, worked very well. The downstairs was very comfortable for us to all hang out. Kitchen was large with lots of storage for the weeks food. There were porches upstairs and downstairs to sit out on and enjoy the views.

Not quite what we bargained for

  • 2 of 5

Phippsburg, Maine is a beautiful place, and we had a wonderful week there. There are 3 beaches near the property and you can kayak all around the bay. However it's important to read the fine print and be aware that this cottage is half a house, and you will be sharing the decks with your neighbors. You can hear everything they say, and vice versa. And the neighboring houses are very close, measured in feet, not yards. If privacy is important to you, then this is not the property for you.

Bill the caretaker lives next door and he was very responsive, but there were a few things that made the house less than charming. For one, you can't drink the water. They use a reverse osmosis process to supply water straight from the ocean, and it tastes like old seashells. Bring plenty of bottled water. For another, they have a commercial faucet in the kitchen (you have to be squeezing the handle to turn it on) which makes it impossible to do the dishes unless you have a third hand. This may sound petty, but we were preparing our own meals and doing lots of dishes, and this got really annoying really fast. And, you get soaked in the process. Other minor things were that one of the toilets was plugged when we got there, the DVD player didn't work, the screen door to the deck wouldn't stay on track (we finally removed it) and one of the stove burners didn't work. For the price, I felt the property should have been better maintained.

Owner's Response: We are very shocked by your reply! We are sorry that you didn't have an enjoyable time at the Sou Wester North as that is our primary goal for each of our guest. This large house (9600 sq. ft.) is divided into two large units and we are very open about that in our write-up (there is no fine print). Both units have unique features which makes both sides quite nice (see the other reviews) our maintenance room sits right between the two units which keeps things very quiet. Yes if you go outside you will see other people in the neighborhood, this property sits in an absolutely gorgeous classic Maine fishing village, not in the woods surrounded by trees. We do our very best to protect everyone's privacy, with landscaping, deck dividers, sound proofing materials, etc. But at the same time we can't eliminate all people and noises, but certainly do our best and most guest don't have an issue. The water comes from a reverse osmosis system that gets tested every month (required by law) and it is safe to drink. Living on the ocean can be a challenge and having fresh water is an issue on the whole coast of Maine. I wish you would have let us known of the issue as we could have looked into it. We have since your review and the water was just recently tested and certified by the state inspectors. Most guest like the commercial sinks as they are large enough to do all the dishes and then some. We will take your thoughts and maybe look for a different design to faucets. We do value our guest comments and we try to improve all of our properties every year. Again we apologize that your stay wasn't a pleasant one, for all of our future guest, if you see something wrong as minor as a burned out stove top, or a broken DVD player please let Bill our property manager know, he will fix it as quickly as he can. I promise you, we are trying to give our guest the best possible vacation they can have and we can't do that unless you tell us there is a problem. We assume all of our guest are having a great time, because it really is so beautiful there .
