The Westwind is Flood’s Cove newest addition built with love and appreciation for history, setting and style. 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.
If you are looking for unique family friendly retreat or an adult getaway vacation; this is the cottage for you. The Westwind allows you to have the best of both worlds… a beautiful modern new cottage located in the heart of Floods cove which has been a family vacation jewel for over 120 years. The Westwind is stylish, quaint and spacious. There are 3 bedrooms (one on the first floor) that sleeps 6 and 2 full bathrooms. The cottage has a full kitchen, dining room and relaxing gathering space with cathedral ceilings. Furthermore, there is a full basement with laundry and work bench for Summer inspired art projects.
One of the best features of the Westwind is the wrap around deck which provides 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. Come back from your adventures and enjoy the outdoor heated shower.
You will leave the Westwind feeling refreshed, restored and looking forward to your next visit to this magical cove.
Note: The Westwind is a NO SMOKING and NO PET cottage. Further, it has a variable rental rate depending on which week you reserve. See the Reservation page of the website for pricing.
