Victorian Cottage on Westport Island
Description of the Westport Island vacation cottage rental
The cottage on Westport Island is a 1913 Victorian Cottage which we have owned since 1970. It has been lovingly maintained by head carpenter, Paul, over the years. Many members of my family have poured their love and sweat into this property. The cottage has four bedrooms, two large screened porches, two bathrooms, washing machine, standard simple kitchen, and high ceilings on the first floor. Warning: there is a small t-v in the house to watch DVD’s, but no cable or satellite, so come prepared to listen to the radio, and play cards, games, and badminton. In 2011, we did add Wi-Fi, so you can get E-mail. The owner uses moth balls to guard against critters, so be aware of that. We own frontage on the Sheepscot River, and belong to an association which owns a steep path to the water where there is a boathouse and small mussle-covered beach. The river is tidal, and the saltwater is cold, so it is a great river for boating. There are wonderful lake and ocean swimming beaches within a half hour drive.
There are many restaurants in the area, and our favorites are Sea Basket, Le Garage, and Montsweag Roadhouse. These businesses are in Wiscasset, which is a 10 minute drive from the house. Estes Lobster House is in Harpswell. five Islands Lobster is in Georgetown. There are many restaurants in Boothbay Harbor, and many other activities including boat tours and bowling! There is a Botanical Garden in Boothbay which has quickly become a family favorite.
Shaw's grocery store is less than 10 minutes from the house. We have a wonderful fish market in Bath, Maine.

Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Westport Island, Maine
Mount Airy, MD
Away from it all, yet good for day outings
April 18, 2014
Some quilting friends and I have stayed here a number of times. We love having our family style meals in the screened porch. It is near historical seafaring sites and homes to tour. This place is relaxed, maybe even rustic and has lots of windows to watch nature as you visit friends and family.
Peaceful and lovely
April 11, 2014
We have stayed at this lovely country cottage a couple of different times. It is very roomy comfortable. We played games, read, and I brought my sewing machine and did some quilting. Very relaxing and peaceful but yet not far at all from places to visit and things to do.
Great midcoast location!

We stayed here with our two young sons. Great location and lots to do: beaches, lakes, Boothbay Harbor, LLBean, Portland, and more!
