About the property

Beloved summer home for our entire family - and YOURS!

Designed, crafted and built by hand - by our own family - in 1979 - in a combined Arts & Crafts, Ranch House, Fishing Cabin style. It’s architecturally interesting, fun, and unique, with rough-cut paneling, cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, hardwood floors and terracotta tiles. It’s an amazing place. One of the most spiritual locations you will ever find. Very relaxing and rejuvenating...

Great for families (Separated from the road by stonewalls and trees – no traffic worries. Plenty of open yard and fields for running, playing, bikes.)

Great for a pair of vacationing couples. Romantic!

Main House has a cathedral ceiling with combined living room and dining room (seats 8). Sleeping loft (for 2 in a queen), above the fully enclosed kitchen and bathroom. Sliding doors onto the west deck. Double sliding doors onto the south deck. Living room has 2 easy chairs, 2 conversation chairs, floor cushions, couch (sleeps 2), TV & wood stove.

Kitchen (full fridge, coffee maker, toaster oven, stove/oven, microwave, dishes, cooking utensils, placemats, serving dishes & serving utensils.)

Bathrooms: one full bathroom (with shower), one half bath (no shower), one outdoor shower (enclosed on all sides, open to the sky, fantastic).

The Main House and the Guest Studio are separate buildings, are not attached, except by the deck.

Guest Studio sleeps 4 (1 queen and 2 singles). Dressers, desk, TV, 3 chairs, storage unit, wood stove, coffee maker.

Pillows, blankets and quilts are provided. Linens and towels can be provided or you can bring your own.

About Randy & Tylea Richard

We are a father (Randy) and daughter (Tylea) and son (Nigel) team caring for our beloved family property. We look forward to hosting you!

We are especially interested in finding renters who will appreciate the place as a family heirloom and maybe even return year after year as kids grow up, or for the annual summer sanctuary.

This is the first time we have advertised in over five years. One family bought a farm in Westport and are now neighbors, and another family promised their daughters an airplane vacation - planning to be back next year.

Randy & Tylea Richard purchased this lodge in 1979

Why Randy & Tylea Richard chose Westport

We bought the property and built the vineyard, and still use it as our summer getaway.

We rent it a few weeks a year to special groups. This is not a commercial venture and we are not landlords.

We do not live on the property but are always available for questions and assistance.

What makes this lodge unique

There are two buildings (near each other but separate).

The Main House sleeps 2 (4 with the fold-out couch), and the Studio sleeps 4 (with two single beds and one queen). There are also foam mattresses for extra guests to slumber on the floor, both houses.

We had a great stay in Westport. Easy access to Horseneck Beach and plenty of outdoor activities. Randy was super accommodating and eager to please. We would definitely return.
