About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This Suisse chalet style cottage located on Westport Island was built on Clough's Point right on the Sheepscot River. With over 400 ft. of deep water frontage and it's own boat dock it also has spectacular views of the village of Wiscasset and historic Fort Edgecomb. The living/dining area has a vaulted ceiling with 40 ft. of glass affording a dramatic view of the river. It is also fully furnished with cottage and antique furniture. Just minutes up the road is the North End Lobster co-op where you can pick up the freshest catch from the local lobstermen. Enjoy the daily sights of working lobster boats, the osprey nesting in the buoy, wildlife, boating, and the sunset light on the Eddy Marina just by walking out on to the deck or down to the dock.

the best spot in Maine

  • 5 of 5

stock up on fresh corn, tomatoes, blueberries and lobsters on your way in and you won't want to leave the house for the entire vacation! Its like living on the bow a ship with the sheepscot river beneath you.

Brand new appliances, well stocked house with everything you need. Plus, towels and linens are provided.

Absolutely spectacular.

Spectacular view for the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Maine is one of our favorite places to vacation and we go almost every fall. As for the house- We loved the incredible ~270 deg views of the river. We spent hours watching the tide. We spotted seals almost every day. We also saw plenty of cormorants and herons.

The kitchen is new and well equipped. We prepared a several meals and even some steaks on the grill. It's also close enough to Reds to pop over for a lobster roll when you have a craving.

WIFI was good. The TV was also nice although we only watched the Pats game. The bathroom is decent but could use refurbishment.

Overall, we were very comfortable and Laurie was very good at getting back to us even when we left something behind. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Greg for posting your review and I am so glad that you enjoyed your time at the cottage. I hope that you are able to return as the coast of Maine is a pretty special place. Every year there are projects either big or small and this winter it just so happens to be the bathroom. Thank you again and I hope all is well! cheers, Laurie

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

So here it is Friday already and as I say to my wife, I hate to be leaving tomorrow, I look at her face and see tears in her eyes. She says this has been her favorite house and place to vacation in all of her 63 years. We took in Rockport, Rockland, Damarisscotta, Camden, Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid Lighthouse all of which are in easy reach. With softshell lobster at $5.70 a lb from the local lobster coop we couldn't help but indulge in lobster and steamers 4 out of 7 days here. The house is perfect, with a beautiful view of the river and the constantly changing tides. Laurie has gone the extra mile in providing a well stocked and modern kitchen that covered all of our needs. If you are looking for the perfect place to enjoy all the Mid Coast of Maine has to offer, look no further than Laurie's wonderful cottage. We hope to be back soon.

Third year...even better

  • 5 of 5

We love our time here more each year. This is our big vacation every year and it we anticipate it months in advance and savor the memories for months after we return. For us, this is the great big week-long SIGH that keeps us sane for the year.

Thank you, Laurie, for the loan of your beautiful cottage...and the sanity. (I think I might have convinced Bill into two weeks for next year. Fingers are crossed!!)

Perfect Maine vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was the best VRBO vacation house we have ever rented. The deck and views of nature were spectacular. We spent hours watching the osprey nest, herons, seals, lobster boats, etc. The dock was an ideal launch for kayaking trips. The house itself (only wanted to be there after the mosquitoes came out) was beautifully decorated and had every needed amenity.

Best vacation - ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing vacation at Laurie's lovely cottage! It is a beautiful location and the cottage had everything we needed. We spent a lot of time sitting on the deck or the dock just relaxing by looking at the beautiful scenery. We loved - ate there three times! The cottage itself was just perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you Laurie for making your cottage available on Home Away!

Just 4 miles from the village of Wiscasset, 'The Prettiest Village in Maine' where there are wonderful antique shops to explore. Make sure to stop by Treats for a special wine and cheese then head to Red's Eats or Sprague's for a lobster roll. Take a day trip to Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Rockport, Camden or head to Portland's Old Port and then Freeport for outlet shopping. Take a walk on Clough's Point Conservation trail or just relax on the deck with a good book. This is truly a special, wonderful and peaceful spot for those who desire to be at the water's edge.
