Oh What a View is just that! If your soul is hungry for beautiful views from almost every room, as well as from the decks and yard, then this is the house for you! Sunsets can be enjoyed from inside or out! Enjoy Maine's big night sky with no white lights, bring you telescopes and set them up on the multiple decks or enjoy star gazing while roasting marshmallows over a fire in the fire pit.

This beautiful, contemporary waterfront property sits among the salty pines that open 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 Montsweag Bay, seals and the occasional otter visit the area as well.

During the prime season, this cottage schedules guests arrivals and departures for Fridays.

Maine is famous for her coastal islands and Westport Island is a prime example. Located in the middle of the tidal, saltwater Sheepscot River and overlooking Montsweag Bay, 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 to the East brings you to Wiscasset for great dining, Antique shops and Art Galleries. Head west to 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 Railway 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 with its artful décor emphasize an atmosphere for a relaxing in comfort . There are three separate sleeping areas that will afford all in your party privacy but also plenty of rooms to come together to relish each others company.

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 Master Bedroom Suite has a Queen Bed set up to maximize your views of the water. Wake up to the sounds and smells of the waterfront. The master suite is complete with its walk-in closet and a private balcony. The en-suite full bathroom has a jetted tub located in front of the windows to afford you views of the water while soaking your cares away.  A separate shower for those who prefer not to soak is right away the corner. This suite is truly luxurious.

A second bedroom on the main floor has two single beds and its own private entrance, great when your group includes varied age groups with some preferring the night life while others prefer to be homebodies. A full bathroom with its claw foot tub and separate shower is off this bedroom. 

The lower level includes a large family room with with its media center and childrens play area, so the family can enjoy a movie and the younger members can play quietly within parents and grandparents  sight.  Sliding doors lead to the covered terrace and beyond to the fire pit and water-side yard. A bedroom with a double bed and a separate bathroom 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.

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 Boothbay Peninsula is a beautiful region rich in culture, history, all things nautical and of course it’s own unique niche in nature. The area offers ample opportunities for biking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, charters and guided cruises, spas, golf, mini-golf, bowling, museums, antiquing, hiking and walking trails. We have the Maine State Aquarium, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and the Boothbay Region Land Trust with its 30+ miles of pet friendly trails in protected areas. For a more comprehensive list of local offerings Click Here!

Westport Island is 14.2 square miles and has a population of just under 750 people and nestles in the Sheepscott, a tidal salt-water river. Accessible via bridge from Bath, or via boat from just about anywhere, it is just off Route One which affords easy access to mid-coast Maine while still giving a sense of remote, peaceful tranquility. Still referred to by the locals as Jeremysquam, the island has a rich nautical history and a deep love of the sea’s bounty. 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.
