Spend your Maine vacation at incredible First Light Cottage on the Sheepscot River on unspoiled Westport Island. First Light is a spacious 3 bedroom + loft, 3 bathroom waterfront cottage with astounding easterly and southern views for awe inspiring sunrises and star-filled nights. Wildlife including bald eagles, ospreys, harbour seals, loons and ducks are common sightings and occasionally harbor porpoises as well. Enjoy watching the majestic sailboats and working lobster boats sail by. Use the telescope or binoculars provided for closeup views.. The telescope is also great for night sky viewing as our location is unspoiled by artificial lights.
Lounge on the double decks, the 100 foot pier and dock, or around the waterfront fire pit watching the majestic sailboats, working lobster boats, and wildlife.Take a coastal walk or enjoy a hike on the island's Bonyun Preserve.
Fish for striped bass off the dock or take a kayak out for a spin. Head south and you’ll likely come upon a group of harbor seals sunbathing on a large rock in the center of the river.
First Light Cottage is truly a dream for boaters and kayakers alike with over 150’ feet of waterfront and a state of the art dock and mooring. Its prime location on the Sheepscot River puts you just minutes from the open ocean, yet securely nestled in the mouth of the Sheepscot for protection as well as easy access to Boothbay Harbor and downtown Wiscasset. On the waterfront is a private, state-of-the-art deep water dock, 100' pier, and float with dinghy ramp for enhanced ease and safety. The float offers at least 8’ at mean low tide and for deeper draft, you can tie up at the mooring. Also located on the pier is a fabulous boater's shed to store all your gear, making water excursions a breeze. A mooring just off the dock is also included with the rental. The cottage is nicely perched on a slight hill just above the Sheepscot River offering fantastic views. The waterfront is private to the cottage just a quick walk down the hill.
The spacious cottage will comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests with three comfortable bedrooms, three large bathrooms, and a bonus sleeping loft. Nearly every room in the cottage features spectacular water views.
MAIN LEVEL: A spacious, open and airy great room w/vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling windows which enhance the spectacular view of the waterfront. This level also includes a separate TV room, nicely appointed kitchen with top of the line appliances, a large screen porch that serves as the dining room, and master bedroom and bathroom. Perched above the great room is a sleeping loft which is accessed by a large handcrafted staircase (not by a ladder).
