About Inder or Jane Cheema
We are the Cheema's...Jane and Inder. One from Canada, and the other from Kashmir, India. Came to Southport in 1978 in search of a home base as we worked mainly overseas, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. Retired from ExxonMobil in 2000. Children and grandchildren are with us every summer, so life is great.
Inder or Jane Cheema purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Inder or Jane Cheema chose West Boothbay Harbor
Close to our home which is also on Southport; sounded like a challenging post retirement project, which it was.

Comfortable quarters, a nice "get away".
Lovely hosts, fine location-good seafood restaurant across the road. It was an easy drive to the bustling town of Boothbay Harbor and a relaxing drive around the Southport island. Hiking nearby, coastal treasures, impressive scenery. We had lots of fun.
Clean and comfortable with lots of room to relax inside or outside.
We were surprised at how much room there was for a 2nd floor rental. Having 2 bathrooms was a real plus. We love Southport, and the location of the apartment at the top of the island made easy access on or off island. There was plenty of parking and 2 grills available if you wanted to bbq your own dinner. But who wants to cook with Robinson's Wharf within walking distance and so many other great restaurants minutes away in Boothbay. Overall we were extremely pleased with our stay and would definitely do it again.
Comfortable apartment, everything needed for housekeeping and everything spotlessly clean
Would definitely stay in this property again. Only problem is noise from the busy road very close to the apartment. This did not interfere with overnight sleeping since traffic substantially decreased late into the evening. This is a good property for the price, and in a very desirable location.
Very satisfying. Beautiful grounds with cove view and attractive house
Our unit was very comfortable with good natural lite in the afternoon. Very well maintained.
Southport is an island about 6 miles long and 2 miles across at its widest. Access is by means of a swing bridge which opens on the half hour for boat traffic. The serenity of this island setting is augmented by nearby Booth bay Harbor and its varied marine activities, restaurants, art galleries, shops, antique stores, live theater, movie theater, aquarium ,etc. For families with children the nearby beach at Hendricks Head is fun and picturesque.Biking enthusiasts have various possibilities on and of the island. Small boats, kayaks, and canoes can tie-up at our dock from where access to the open ocean and surrounding islands and waterways/coves is feasible and safe. There is much to be explored on the island...a quaint seaside church, the landing at Newagen and its bold ocean views, hiking trails, a historical museum, a town library, and a couple of picturesque harbors. Both formal and informal dining is within walking distance of the home.
Golf: A challenging and well maintained 18 hole golf course is within a 10 min. drive; includes golf school/academy .
