There is an additional breakfast table for 4, screen porch facing the water, a gas BBQ (propane provided).
 
For our early and late season guest rentals the cottage has central heat and high quality Andersen windows so if it's chilly outside it's toasty warm inside. Especially perfect for fall foliage and Thanksgiving holiday getaways.
 
Easy access on and off the island by bridge. The cottage is not too far down the island so only a few minutes off and on and the perfect location for exploring the Midcoast area from Freeport to Boothbay to Camden and beyond.
 
We provide two propane tanks for the gas BBQ grill so you never run out and a 'starter package' of paper towels, toilet paper, bath soap, and more. Newer linens for bed and bath, down comforters, beach chairs and towels, coolers, picnic basket, wine glasses, cork screw, lobster pot steamer and crackers, blender, quality pots and pans, numerous books, indoor and outdoor games and puzzles.
 
Westport Island with its central Mid Coast location is the perfect base camp to enjoy all the Mid Coast has to offer. Start your vacation off right and schedule an appointment with Westport Island's own "traveling massage therapist". No need to leave the Island to get your lobsters, just a 5- minute lobster crawl away is the North End Lobster Coop where you can chat with the local lobstermen and buy the day's catch right off the dock! Head down island (by car or bike) and get back to nature for a walk along the Back River walking trail.
 
Choose from two fantastic beaches, both under a 30-minute drive- Reid State Park and Popham Beach.
 
Wonderful Wiscasset (the Prettiest Village in Maine) is a 10 minute drive and home to the famous Red’s Eats (AWESOME LOBSTER ROLLS), a plethora of antique stores, and Monkey C Monkey Do Zip Line for kids of all ages, Dunkin Donuts, several family-owner restaurants and more.
 
Freeport/L.L. Bean, located 35 minutes away, offers outlet malls and free weekend concerts as well as a variety of restaurants.
 
Historic Bath, a shipbuilding town and home to Bath Iron Works, is about 15 minutes away. Front street offers numerous shops, including “Made in Maine”, restaurants and the Maine Maritime Museum. A great walking town to enjoy century old architecture.
