Guest access

Kayaking from our dock on Deckers Cove to innner islands and waterways or the open ocean.

Also available are hiking trails ( a bigger network is off the island ), biking and a well stocked, modern library. Boothbay Harbor with its full slate of marine activities, an aquarium, and the now famous Botanical Gardens, are just minutes away. LL Bean, Portland, Rockland/Camden, Owls Head Motor and aircraft museum, are all just over an hour away.

Interaction with guests

The Owners also live on the island and are available to provide assistance and help quickly. There is no formal check-in/check-out procedure; the facility is unlocked when guests first arrive with keys inside. At the front end the owners provide a short orientation about the facility and the area, and generally visit daily to pick up garbage and to water the plants.

Other things to note

Southport is an island about 6 miles long and 2 miles across at its widest. Access is by means of a swing bridge which opens on the half hour for boat traffic. The serenity of this island setting is augmented by nearby Boothbay Harbor and its varied marine activities, restaurants, art galleries, shops, antique stores, live theater, movie theater, aquarium ,botanical gardens,etc. For families with children the nearby beach at Hendricks Head is fun and picturesque.Biking enthusiasts have various possibilities on and of the island. Small boats, kayaks, and canoes can tie-up at our dock from where access to the open ocean and surrounding islands and waterways/coves is feasible and safe. There is much to be explored on the island...a quaint seaside church, the landing at Newagen and its bold ocean views, hiking trails, a historical museum, a town library, and a couple of picturesque harbors. Both formal and informal dining is within walking distance of the apartment.

Apt#3 was smaller than expected. If you're looking for a place to only sleep then this would be ok. The two kayaks that are available are for more experienced kayakers, not beginners. The location is close to Boothbay Harbor (10 min) and that was convenient. Definitely stop at Red Cup Coffee House, worth the wait!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay an Inder's place, especially the kayaks. It was very convenient to our wedding in Boothbay Harbor, and a very tidy, neatly appointed apartment that accommodated us well. We especially appreciated the teapot and dominoes for evenings after we returned from our full days. Would highly recommend.

Response from Inder:
Thank you for your kind words. We learned from you that we need to be definitive about where the kayaks are located...thank you.

Inder's place is the best kept secret in Southport. Right across from Robinson's this place has everything you need. The best thing about the apartment was meeting Inder. He couldn't have been more gracious and welcoming. I will definitely be back.

We had a great stay in southport! Inder was a great host, very friendly and offered a lot of good tips on where to go in the area. The apartment was very clean and nice with everything you need for a home away from home. We would definitely come back.
