The new Westwind ocean front house is expected to be ready for rental starting June of 2018.
$2,500 to $1,200/wk + tax depending on the week
The Westwind is Flood’s Cove newest addition. We are very proud to be offering this spectacular new cottage beginning June of 2018. The Westwind is located in arguably one of the most picturesque spots of Flood’s Cove, boasting southern views of the sparkling ocean, Muscongus Bay Islands, breathtaking sunsets and the rocky shores of the Maine coast.
The name Westwind was chosen for this cottage after the 32’ wooden Marconi rig Herreshoff sloop Dr. Everett Flood (Mary & John’s Grandfather) bought somewhere around 1940. Similar to the Defiance being named after the Pinky style fishing boat that Captain Ambrose Simmons, the previous cove owner, used to fish the Grand Banks in the late 1800’s. The name “Westwind” recalls the summers gone by, spent sailing to points unknown throughout Muscongus Bay.
So, if you are looking for a family friendly retreat or an adult getaway vacation; this is the cottage for you. The Westwind is a quaint, but spacious New England inspired cape with modern amenities. There are 3 bedrooms (one on the first floor) that sleeps 6 and 1.5 baths. The cottage has a full kitchen, which opens into a relaxing gathering space with cathedral ceilings, cozy wood burning stove. Furthermore, there is a full basement to spread out in.
One of the best features of the Westwind is the wrap around deck that will allow you unobstructed views of the ocean and beach. You will be able to relax, read, socialize, take a nap, and so much more while enjoying the summer breezes and warm sunshine of the Maine coast. However, if you choose to leave the tranquility of the deck, you will only be a few steps away from the beach and water, where you may want to take a swim or explore by kayaks (offered to tenants at no charge) the extensive shore frontage that makes up Flood’s Cove.
You will leave the Westwind feeling refreshed, restored and looking forward to your next visit to this magical cove.
Note: The Westwind has a variable rental rate depending on which week you reserve. See the Reservation page of the website for pricing.
