Located in historic West Point in Phippsburg you will enjoy a quiet vacation in a beautiful setting. Enjoy watching the ocean and harbor from our wrap around deck, balcony and Widow's Walk. Stroll down to Cat Cove to swim and explore the tide pools. From here you can launch your kayak to explore nearby islands. Be sure to keep a look out for eagles, loons and seals. Plan an evening lobster/clam bake. Located near Popham Beach, Sebasco Resort and Bath. Convenient amenities to make your vacation comfortable. Coastal Maine at its best!!!

New Dishwasher installed! Free use of season pass to near by Popham Beach.After many request we now offer sea kayak rentals on site for exploring the coast.

Your next relaxing vacation awaits you in one of the most scenic and unspoiled historic fishing villages on the coast of Maine! Come and enjoy coastal living in a waterfront 100 year old dance hall! Once a weekend destination in the late 1800’s to mid 1900’s for the locals to dance, gather and visit. The Sou’Wester has been restored to accommodate vacationers appreciating beauty and solitude. You will be greeted by the crisp salty smell of the ocean, the hum of lobster boats leaving for their days work and the friendly “hellos” from the local “West Pointers”. Relax to awe inspiring vistas of Casco Bay, the harbor and nearby islands on our wrap around deck. Leave the cares of the world behind you as you surround yourself in West Point’s breath taking beauty. Our goal at West Point Vacation Properties is to make your vacation one to remember for years to come. We are dedicated to providing you with quality service and personal attention from the start of your vacation to your actual stay. The Sou'Wester was converted from a early dance hall into an inn in the 1970's then in 2000 into it's current state into a large duplex property. With the decks the entire property is about 9600 sq ft. The properties are seperated by our maintenance space and the decks are seperated by dividers and nothing is shared between the two properties.

The Sou’ Wester has been carefully restored to accommodate guests who appreciate time with family, friends and beautiful vistas of the rocky coast and ocean. The water is a short walk down to Cat Cove for shell collecting and swimming. Cat Cove is an excellent site to launch your kayak for a tour around the harbor and islands close by. A trail through the piney woods will lead you to a secluded area that is fun for exploration. Among the rocks there is tide pool where some of the locals learned how to swim. Be sure to look for sea creatures in the tide pools.

For those vacationers who need more adventures, there are many exciting things to do near West Point. Phippsburg has many wooded walking trails that are both easy to hike and pretty. Historic Popham Beach, settled in 1607, is a short distance down the road. The 500 acre beach is worth a visit for those who enjoy smooth, white sandy beaches. Popham Fort, from the Civil War years, is close by and ready to be explored. Sebasco Resort is also close by, and has a golf course, spa services and several restaurants. The nearest city to West Point is historic Bath, “The City of Ships”. Maine’s first ship was built here in 1607-1608. If you are interested in ships the Maine Maritime Museum offers a glimpse into Maine’s boat building past. Maine’s boat building future can be seen at the Bath Ironworks, where some of the most sophisticated Navy ships are built today.

Quaint shops and restaurants make Bath a fun day trip. To the North one can travel to Boothbay Harbor. This is an excellent day trip where you can enjoy shopping and restaurants. Boothbay offers whale watching and other boating excursions. Brunswick is another historic town nearby that offers shopping, restaurants, Bowdoin College and the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum. Less than an hour away is Freeport, famous for L.L. Bean’s flagship store. L. L. Bean is open 24 hours a day and a perfect place to go on rainy days. Other outlet stores and restaurants make Freeport a shoppers dream. Portland is about an hour away and offers historic sites, shopping, restaurants and airport transportation.

In whatever way you choose to spend your vacation here in West Point, it will be sure to be one full of gorgeous sights and lasting memories. To make your vacation spot “a home away from home” we have supplied our guests with household items both convenient and useful.

Peaceful location on the Maine coast

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location in Phippsburg. The house is very sturdy...not your typical cottage or camp feel to it. And spectacular views. Very convenient to Popham and a handful of restaurants. Highly recommend this rental.

Spacious, clean house...quaint location.

  • 5 of 5

Loved all the rustic maritime accents throughout the house. I also appreciated how out-of-the-way, quiet, and friendly the village is. The close proximity to Popham Beach State Park is SO nice. I would love to visit again!

Nice, spacious house with water views all around

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in early May when the weather was cold and rainy much of the time. Fortunately, the house is large, cozy and warm when the gas fireplace is on. There is lots of glass with views everywhere and wraparound porches that were very nice when the sun came out. The house is located in a tiny community and you have to drive awhile to get to a store, a restaurant or the beach.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The Sou'Wester is a terrific vacation rental! Beautiful views and the village it's in is very scenic. We arrived very late but the caretaker left the front door open for us so we didn't have to disturb anyone to get in. The house is very roomy and we spent every evening on the deck drinking wine! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and the large flat sceen TV entertained when the sun went down! Suggestion...smaller TVs in the 2 guest bedrooms would be a great thing for groups of adults. Overall, we loved the house!

Wonderful, peaceful, hidden gem on the beautiful rocky Maine coast!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sou'wester! It is a lovely, spacious home and was very clean upon arrival. The views of the charming fishing pier were wonderful and the ability to stroll down to a swimming cove was convenient and fun. We also launched kayaks from the cove and enjoyed a chartered fishing excursion which we picked up across the street. The kayaks and fishing trip were possible due to the friendly and welcoming locals who helped us out in both areas. As a family used to the beautiful National Seashore of Cape Cod, Popham State Beach was just as lovely, clean and pristine if not more so- minus the cape cod crowds. We hope to return to this fantastic vacation spot. Thank you for the opportunity!
