Once the island Trading Post (in the 1820's) now serves as our guesthouse on Westport Island. The building is nestled at the water's edge atop the tidal waters of the Sheepscot River -literally over the water. The big ships would anchor out and smaller boats would bring in the provisions accessing the building by water. The whole property has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1982. The property has its own private island, rocky beach, trails and hammock.
You enter into an open living/dining kitchen area with original counters & split lathe ceiling. The building has the 1820's rustic charm with 21st century amenities - 4 burner stove, slate sink, refrigerator, cable TV and wood burning stove in the living area. Two sets of sliding doors open to a large back deck that is completely over water. An outdoor seating area makes for a perfect place to watch the sunrise with a book or sunset while BBQing on the outdoor grill. King bed and bathroom downstairs. Upstairs - open loft 2 twin beds. Not suitable for young children.
