BELLA VISTA | WESTPORT ISLAND MAINE | SALT WATER RIVER | PRIVATE DOCK & FLOAT | INCREDIBLE VIEWS
Description from the manager
The beautiful view is what Bella Vista is all about. The frosting on the cake is the private dock and float from which you can easily kayak, canoe, fish or float. You will be happy as a clam to simply stay put and relax and enjoy all this cottage has to offer! Enjoy the clean lines, contemporary furnishings and style that are Bella Vista. Breathtakingly beautiful sunsets, river smoke rising in the mornings and the most amazing light make this a photographer’s dream!
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
Explore the waterway and shoreline by kayak or boat, leaving from your own dock & float; rent locally or bring your own. Take in views of Montsweag Bay. Create your own extraordinary meals in the gourmet kitchen or grill and dine outdoors. Enjoy family and friends with the large yard for a game of croquet or badminton. Swim off the dock or enjoy bird watching either from the lawn, deck, dock or house itself; Hawks, Eagles, Heron, Osprey and possibly a seal are there to make your stay at Bella Vista truly memorable. You are just a short drive into Wiscasset or even Boothbay Harbor or over to Bath to enjoy the activities there such as the Maine Maritime Museum or Reid State Park, whale watches, guided tours, a round or two of golf, spas, shopping and more!
Clean lines, contemporary stylish furnishings, an open inviting feel is what you will find at Bella Vista. Floor to ceiling windows on the water side on both the first and second floors make you feel like you are part of the landscape and the beautiful Sheepscot River. The wide open rooms let sunshine and salty air move through Bella Vista like your favorite friend. Hard wood floors, lovingly chosen furnishings and minimal window treatments all combine to create a wonderful ambiance.
A small deck on the front of the house overlooks Montsweag Cove as does an open deck with Adirondack Chairs. The large expanse of lawns are perfect for lawn games and a picnic table provides a wonderful alfresco dining area overlooking the water
The entire The First Floor has huge windows to the water that bring fantastic views inside for you to enjoy. Sunsets here are the best and can be enjoyed panoramically with the wonderful wall of windows overlooking the River.
An open concept living, dining room and kitchen area makes socializing easy.

If you can tear your eyes from the views, a large flat-screen TV with cable and WIFI are included! The gourmet kitchen is a modern delight with a professional gas range and comes fully equipped.

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!
