OH WHAT A VIEW
Oh What a View is just that! If your soul is hungry for beautiful views from almost every room, the decks and yard, then this is the house for you! Sunsets can be enjoyed from inside or out! The colors and light throughout the day and into the dewy gloaming will amaze you as only Maine can!
This beautiful, contemporary waterfront property sits among the salty pines that opens up to beautiful water views. From both decks, the living room or the grounds you can watch the Osprey, Eagles, Heron and other aquatic birds as they fish from the bountiful salt-water tidal river. Seals and the occasional otter visit the area as well.
During the prime season, this cottage is available Friday to Friday.
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
Maine is famous for her coastal islands and Westport Island is a prime example. Located in the middle of the tidal, saltwater Sheepscot River, you will not tire of all there is to do and see! Rent a couple kayaks or even hire a guide and explore this rich and bountiful region of mid-coast Maine. Island living is its own kind of magic!
Water access is available from Wright Landing, less than a mile from the house. This public landing has a dock and float, boat launch and picnic areas with more incredible views! The MacNamara Foundation (summer artists’ colony) is close by as is the Clough Point Preserve for hiking, views and exploration! A short drive brings you to Wiscasset for great dining, Antiquing and shopping. Head the other direction and find yourself in historic Bath or head over to Popham State Beach or Reid State Park -both have long stretches of white sandy beaches! Boothbay Peninsula is also close by with shopping, walking trails, whale watching and more. Day trips via the Downeast Express from Wiscasset to Damarisoctta and on to Rockland or south to Boston with stops in Brunswick, Freeport and Portland are an option as well.
The location, contemporary style and open-concept floor plan combine with the artfully soothing décor to create the atmosphere for a relaxing, carefree vacation. There are three separate sleeping areas that will afford all in your party privacy.
The inviting and spacious open kitchen, living and dining room areas on the main floor can be enjoyed by the whole family. French doors to the deck provide beautiful views. The owners have created an ambiance of gracious comfort with plenty of space for gathering.
The Master Bedroom Suite has a Queen Bed, walk-in closet and a private balcony. The en-suite full bathroom has a jetted tub, separate shower and luxurious appointments. This suite is truly luxurious.
A second bedroom on this floor has Two Single Beds, a private entrance and access to the bathroom. The full bathroom has a claw foot tub and separate shower with a door to the kitchen as well. A laundry room is also located on this floor.
The lower level includes a large family room with sliders to the covered terrace and beyond to the fire pit and water-side yard. A bedroom with a double bed and a 3/4 bathroom with shower complete this level.
In addition to the decks and terrace, there is a large side yard, perfect for lawn games. The property includes many personal touches and special surprises like gnomes, fairy houses, beautiful stepping stones and many flowering plants and bushes.

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION?
Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make your vacation perfect!

The island has a couple distinguished eateries including the famed Jeremy Squam Restaurant. Also close by is the MacNamara Foundation where you can watch, or join, artists at work using various mediums. Within an easy drive, or scenic boat ride, are Wiscasset, Damariscotta, Boothbay and more! You can also make easy trips to the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Popham Beach and Reid State Park.
