SEA SPRITE COTTAGE OVERLOOKS THE OCEAN AT POPHAM BEACH

Popham Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 3 bath cottage with private beachfront at Popham

This year, your dream of summer at the beach can be a reality your family won't forget. Popham, with its sandy, wide beach and off-shore islands, is often described as one of the finest beaches in the Northeast. Our cottage is set on its own private piece of this wonderful beach enabling you to enjoy serenity on the sand without distracting crowds.

Sea Sprite was originally built in the 1890’s and retains its romantic charm. It has been carefully updated with all modern conveniences while still maintaining it's unique character. With 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, an open kitchen, and two family rooms, there is room for the whole family. This summer, make your vacation dream come true in a seaside cottage with timeless appeal.

Imagine awakening your first morning in the master bedroom to an enchanting sunrise over islands in the open Atlantic. French doors in the sunroom lead to the “morning deck,” the perfect place for breakfast. Then grab a beach towel and chair and take the private path through the dune grass to the water’s edge. Enjoy long walks on the 3 miles of wide, gently sloping sandy beach. At low tide, there is even an island to explore. The broad expanse of hard packed sand at low tide provides plenty of room for ball games, Frisbee or kite flying.

When you return from the beach, the “afternoon deck” on the west side of the cottage beckons you to relax with a book and a beverage while enjoying the sunset. A generously equipped kitchen makes dinner preparation a snap. You will find everything you need for steamed lobsters and clams, or you could grill hamburgers and hot dogs on the Weber gas grill. When it’s finally time for bed, you will fall asleep quickly to the gentle murmur of the nearby surf. Summer at Popham is Sun, Sand, Sea, Serenity…

The owner's parents and grandparents have enjoyed this cottage since 1936. The owners, their children, and grandchildren come to Popham as often as possible, but they now live all across the country and can no longer spend the entire summer there. This situation allows us to share this special property on Maine's loveliest sandy beach with new families who come to love it as we have.

CyberRentals customer since 2003 purchased this cottage in 1936

This historic property began life as the barbershop for the Rockledge Hotel and was located in the 'Piney Grove.' When the hotel burned down about 1915, it was purchased by one of the owners of the Popham subdivsion and was converted to a summer cottage and moved to the Wood Island Point, the original location of the Coast Guard station. In 1977, beach erosion threatened the cottage on the Point, so for safety's sake, the cottage made its second move to its current location.

Four generations of one family have loved this cottage for the last 77 years. Each generation added its own taste and flavor to the decor, allowing the cottage to tell a story of the changing vacationing habits of an American family. Where there was once a hand operated washer and wringer in a basement garage, there is now a super capacity washer and dryer to handle family sized laundry needs. The kitchen once got water with a hand pump in a soapstone sink, but it is now fully equipped with disposal, dishwasher, electric range, microwave, and large refrigerator with ice-maker. There is a Weber gas grill for a BBQ on the deck. A mosquito magnet will keep you comfortable there. The cottage has newly refinished wood floors and electric heat for chilly nights. One of the pleasures of coming to Popham is getting away, but Cable TV, Internet access, and a land line will keep you in touch with the world when you need to be. We like to think we have preserved the best of the past while adding the comfort of the present.

SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a quiet, stress-free vacation, this is the place! The cottage is a stone's throw away from the beach. Anything you might need (and more) is provided. We live here in Maine, and Popham is only an hour drive for us. 6 years ago we found Mary and discovered that renting at Popham is as good as it gets. The stretch of beach in front of the cottage is serene. At any time of the day you can go out to the beach and it almost feels as if you have it to yourself. The cottage is amazing...so comfortable, clean and spacious. We didn't go too far from the cottage aside from long walks on the beach. This property and Mary will not disappoint. If we could give it a 6th star, we would!!

A GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is spacious, well maintained and loved. So many details are thoughtfully available to the guests like lobster pots and bowls, a complete kitchen, books about Popham history, beach towels and chairs and on and on. We loved our stay there. The beach is a short walk and private. After a day of swimming and shell collection come back for a sea breeze and cocktails on the back deck. My favorite part. The owner is more than gracious and friendly. A lucky find. We will be back.
