"I arrived from the UK with my two boys for a weeks vacation in Maine. Our main reason for coming to West Bath was to visit an old friend and his family who live locally but also to enjoy every thing Maine has to offer. We rent every year in Maine and Cape Cod and this house is right up there with the best of them. The location on the water is amazing (the boys swam and fished off the pier), the house really comfortable with all the amenities we would wish for. I would thoroughly recommend the house and will be planning to come back next year !"

"Leave your books behind when you check in as you will find more interesting books and magazines than you could possibly read at this charming "Literary Lodging". Everything you could possibly need or want has been thought of and provided for by the owners. Even an extensive selection of teas and a pound of delicious coffee were available. The convenient downtown location is within walking distance of excellent restaurants, shops, an antiquarian and used book shop and art galleries. There were three of us, and we had more than enough room in this spacious, comfortable and decorated with all things Maine
lodging. We would certainly return if we were in the area again!"

"My wife and two college/high school-age sons spent a beautiful relaxing week. My favorite activity: sit on the porch with a good book and the gorgeous views of the bay and out to the ocean -- sometimes busy but not disturbing with lobsterman and other boats, plus ducks and osprey diving for fish out front, couple of seals out in the harbor, and what I think was a mink or otter late one afternoon. The photos are accurate, it's truly beautiful. Kitchen is a bit rustic, again as advertised, but everything works and it's fully stocked with all the kitchen gear you need. Upstairs bedrooms also rustic but charming and clean. Towels/linens provided and plentiful. We enjoyed easy day trips to Freeport for LL Bean and Rockland to see friends -- and Red's in Wiscasset is a must for lobster roll and fried clams (standing in line is half the fun). Best meal on Southport: Newagen Seaside Inn -- and Robinson's Wharf is good for lobster -- both no more than 5 minutes from the house. The landlord was very accessible and helpful, no problems at all. Still dreaming of the view off the porch while sweltering in DC writing this!"

"My husband and I spent a week in August here and absolutely loved it. The house is as bright, immaculate, and beautifully decorated as in the pictures, and the views really are that good. The neighborhood is very walkable and charming and the neighbors are friendly. We rented kayaks for the week from someone just down the street and were able to beach them in the cove at the end of the neighborhood, about a 5 minute walk from the house-- very convenient. We bought some art from another neighbor who has a stunning studio in her home.
The only caveat is that the water is not drinkable and you must bring your own-- they provided a gallon which for us was not enough but we didn't re-stock early enough so go ahead and bring more than you think you need! Also, if you are a person who wants long showers or baths, this is not the place for you. Only a stand-up shower that isn't designed to run for a long period of time (water well).
Our hosts were helpful, responsive, and hospitable. They even shared some of their fresh-caught Maine lobsters and showed us how to prepare them! This was one of our best vacations and we hope to return."
