With the cottage's 3 separate bedrooms and 3 private bathrooms as well as the many private and common areas it is perfect for multiple families and couples traveling together.

Especially perfect for Thanksgiving holiday getaways.Easy access on and off the island by bridge. The cottage is not too far down the island so only a few minutes off and on and the perfect location for exploring the Midcoast area from Freeport to Boothbay to Camden and beyond.Relax from the moment you arrive: unlike many rentals, our cottage rental comes with professional arrival and departure day cleaning service, two propane tanks for the gas BBQ grill so you never run out.

About the neighborhood
The cottage is located just off the island bridge making it easy to get on and off the island. There is an ample wooded area between the quiet street and the cottage for added privacy. Just down the road is the island's own lobster co-op where you can buy the day's catch off the dock. Nothing compares to a freshly caught lobster. Westport Island is the perfect 'base camp' for traveling to Portland, Freeport, Boothbay Harbor, Camden and Beyond.
