Comfortable, open 1500 s.f. home on the quiet, north end of Westport Island near Wiscasset, "The Prettiest Village in Maine". Enjoy the day's first cup of coffee from the raised deck while watching the sun rise over the glistening waters of the Sheepscott River. Listen to the whispering pines, lobster boats tending traps and the call of seabirds. Relax on the deck, new 10' x 20' float or take a walk to the nearby lobster coop and carry back dinner. The island has three preserves for hiking and picnicking. You're just a few minutes from coastal Route 1 where you can rent kayaks and canoes, shop for groceries, play at Monkey See, Monkey Do (look it up), visit Bath and Boothbay Harbor, Maine Maritime Museum, eat at any one of several highly-reviewed, nearby restaurants. It's a great spot to launch a day trip to Freeport, Camden and Rockport. Fish, swim or put in your kayak or canoe from the new dock. The hillside leading to the dock is steep, but steps are broad and winding with a bench or two (what goes down must come up). Settle in and enjoy the amenities: wifi, smart tv, large-capacity washer and dryer, fully-stocked kitchen, linens, hair dryer, iron and board, alarm clock, showers and a tub, dishwasher, microwave and toaster oven, ice cream maker, charcoal grill and coffee maker. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and door that leads out to a secluded, seashore garden with Adirondack chairs. The private and spacious loft sleeps two with seating for reading and relaxing. Another first-floor bedroom also sleeps two. Enjoy river views while you dine - rain or shine - from the deck or dining room. There is a well-established and wide variety of shrubs and flowers around the house and here and there on the hillside. Keep an eye out for fox, bald eagles, osprey and seals. Watch the six to 11 foot tides come and go. Westport Isle of View has much to offer. Come see for yourself.
