About Ellie Wickes

We have been spending our summers in Westport for over 30 years. It is the gathering point for our extended family members who have lived across two continents. We cherish this magical spot on the river where it is hard to tear yourself away from the peaceful views from the porch and decks, watching the boats go out to the ocean and back to the harbor. Sunrise and sunsets are just stunning. The water is always in sight.

What makes this house unique

Water views, steps to ocean and beach, large lawn for family games, phenomenal cycling, swim off the deep-water dock, great breakfast and espressos down the road. Ice cream stands galore and peaceful, low-key location.
