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 Sea Side Cottage was remodeled this Spring (in 2009) complete with all new furniture and open for the first time this year. We are starting late and have lowered the price for this year because of our late start. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi John-

We had a wonderful vacation, thank you. The cottage was perfect. We would definitely consider coming back to West Point and I see you have other properties that could accomodate our entire family. We've been going to Nantucket the past couple of years, but I will check in with everyone to see if they want to go to Maine instead next Spring.



So I'll be in touch. And thanks again!

This cottage is a sweet little place located in a charming village. Close to lighthouses a beach but you'll need a car.

Perfect place to get away. Quiet location when I traveled. Great view from deck! There is a little beach just a short walk away for some fun rock explorations. Would definitely visit again!

Beautiful view, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this cottage in Phippsburg. Beautiful view of the ocean and small harbor from the porch (front and side) and yet very private. Cottage was clean and comfortable--unpretentious, i.e. 'cottagey'. Bed was especially comfortable. Kitchen included everything for cooking and eating, though bring a sharp knife for food prep. I very much appreciated that sheets and towels came wrapped up; since we made up our own bed we knew it was clean. both towels and sheets were wonderfully white. We did not meet the owner, but we very much liked Bill who takes care of the place. We didn't need anything, but if you did he lives right up the hill.

End of July we had absolutely perfect weather, warm sunny days and cool nights. Some nights were clear and we saw stars and meteors!

For eating out, we especially liked Anna's, which is nearby.

Our Summer Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in the cottage for the last 4 years now. It's peaceful, quiet and very serene. A place where we heal, rest and solve the worlds problems. Easy to get anywhere from there, groceries, dining, beaches and shopping. We will be extending our stay next year to 2 weeks. We love the Cottage.

amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my husband and 2 yr old son. It was an amazing place for a relaxing family visit. We did lunches in Bath and visited the state park for some tide pools/hiking, but honestly we didn't see much of a reason to leave our cottage area. My son enjoyed the backyard and the huge deck and we took several walks a day down to the cove where he played in the sand for hours and we basically had a private beach. He loved seeing the boats and there was a short trail from cat cove to an overlook that we enjoyed climbing for the views and a little adventure. It was the most relaxing 3 days ever and that's hard with a 2 yr old. Would love to go back!
