The cottage on Westport Island is a 1913 Victorian Cottage which we have owned since 1970. The house is old and quirky, but very comfortable, and it has been lovingly maintained by head carpenter, Paul, over the years.
Many members of my family have poured their love and sweat into this property.
The cottage has four bedrooms, two large screened porches, two bathrooms, washing machine, dryer, standard simple kitchen, and high ceilings on the first floor. New mattresses in two bedrooms.
The house is NOT wheel chair accessible.
There are antiques in the pieces that we treasure., Warning: there is a small t-v in the house to watch DVD's, but no cable or satellite, so come prepared to listen to the radio, and play cards, games, and badminton. In 2011, we did add Wi-Fi, so you can get E-mail. The owner has discontinued the use of moth balls. We now use dryer sheets instead.
We own frontage on the Sheepscot River, and belong to an association which owns a STEEP path to the water where there is a boathouse and small mussel-covered beach. The river is tidal, and the saltwater is COLD, so it is a great river for boating.
Children under 10 years of age must wear a PFD when near the water, a new safety rule to keep kids safe. There are wonderful lake and ocean swimming beaches within a half hour drive. Renovation of the downstairs bathroom is complete and we now have a washer and a dryer in the new mudroom.+ More
