Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Welcome to the Seaside Cottage!. It is a lovely cottage that has amazing views of the harbor, nearby islands and the open ocean from its decks. This is the ideal location for guests who require solitude and beauty. Honeymooners, painters, writers and photographers would do well here for inspiration from nature. The cottage has one bedroom that has a queen size bed. A futon in the living room sleeps two more people. The cottage is comfortable with a full kitchen that has everything you need entertain family and friends. Kayaks available for rent.
The views are unbelievable from every room of the cottage, whether you are inside or out, in your bed or on the couch you can see the open ocean and nearby islands. Just relax and enjoy one of the most peaceful places around.
Take 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 piny 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. You can fish from the rocks, or watch the lobster and sailboats go by. Keep your eyes open for eagles, loons, cormorants and seals.
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.

I liked everything. It was warm, clean,the view perfect.
Beyond our wildest dreams!
This gem overlooking the ocean and harbors at every turn, captivated us from the moment we stepped inside. Spacious enough for a family reunion, cozy enough for one family! Special features that made it the best spot to end our 3
week excursion on the East Coast. The nautical decor tastefully and intricately throughout this stunning home added to our pleasure. From a plethora of artistically chosen lighting fixtures to top quality master bedroom curtains (which appeared to be made from sailing masts) to the spiral staircase taking you to a lookout nook, with 180* views of this West Point/Phippsburg area and beyond. Amazing, excellent equipped kitchen to enjoy working in and plenty of sunny spots (inside & out) to relax in! We will treasure these past 4 days and dream of coming back! Thank you Bill & family and John! You folks know how to do it! The “Pride of Ownership” is more than evident!
Beautiful spot to get away.
The cottage was quaint, and the views were very pretty. I wouldnt exactly say there was solitude as fisherman (in their trucks) came and went throughout the day, but if you are from the City, then maybe you could say that. I had a difficult time locating it, as I arrived well after dark and the only light left on, was from the TV, so I thought the place was occupied. Thank goodness I had phone reception and got a hold of John, who was extremely nice and helped me locate the correct pathway. There is some information that was not up to date on the booking info I was sent, such as the on-site managers phone number..
I did not like the fact that there was no key left so I couldn't lock the door if I had left, but as I was only staying two nights, it really wasn't an issue. As with previous reviews, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, but no condiments and I understand the concern over tainted products, but packets of ketchup/mayo or salt/ pepper or even coffee packs shouldnt be a problem. Everything these days seems to come in a safe, self contained packet.
I thought the price of the rental itself was reasonable, but the VRBO fees were high, especially when the bed was not made, but maybe I was expecting too much.
Overall the stay was pleasant, but I don't think I would book through VRBO again.
Comfy, clean cottage with sunny deck in a great little working harbor. Friendly people, pretty views, a minute's walk to the cove beach. A nice long weekend for two, not far from Route 1. Great getaway.
A beautiful spot
We had a great stay and enjoyed the quietness. The cottage was lovely and clean. The property manager was great. He answered all questions and really made our stay a great one. The views and surrounding areas really make this a sweet spot to get away from it all. Thanks for a memorable vacation.
Awesome Spot to unwind from the daily grind
Fabulous ocean views (from practically every window of this quaint cottage). Great amenities. (Dishwasher! Hot showers!) Excellent getaway for 2 people, a bit snug for 4. Doable if you do not require a lot of space and the weather cooperates. The deck is a great area to entertain,: overlooks islands and lobster boats in the harbor . You can walk down and buy the freshest lobster you have ever tasted!
This was my first time using the HomeAway App. The communication was not as personal as with previous rentals. We experienced some communication difficulties the first evening of our stay. It all worked out in the end . We highly recommend this little gem.
