Loved Popham Beach

We rented this property on Popham Beach in June 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is immaculate and extremely comfortable. It was just my husband and I, but the house could easily accommodate 6 adults plus a couple children. The location is slightly remote (approx. 25 minutes from the closest highway), but well worth the drive. The beach was beautiful, with lighthouses in the distance and seals swimming by daily. The beach never seemed to be crowded or loud either. If you're into fishing, you're in for a treat as you can stand along the shore and are almost guaranteed to catch something. Also, just steps away from the house is a small store (Percy's) that sells basic groceries (beer and wine too) and serves ice cream, sandwiches and breakfast, and a restaurant (Spinney's) that serves a delicious breakfast and dinner (lunch too, although we never made it over for lunch).
During our stay, we took daytrips to Bath, Freeport and Boothbay Harbor (about an hour long drive, but well worth it). If you'd rather just sit and enjoy Popham Beach, it's not a bad place to sit and relax! We hope to return to Popham Beach next year.
