Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We are repeat renters- my family has rented Rockledge Cottage six times. This cottage is located on the best spot of the nicest beach (in our opinion) in Maine. You are able to see the ocean and hear the waves from virtually any room in the cottage. It is also very private.

The cottage has a history, and the layout is unusual because it has been built onto the side of a rock. The kids love their bedrooms (one room has a reading nook with its own window and ladder!); another room sits on the top of the cottage with panoramic views on all four sides and has its own washroom. The kitchen was recently renovated and is very functional and charming. Cell phones and wifi always work. The owner has really thought of everything.

At low tide you can usually walk to two islands just offshore. The beach is very long and never crowded.

Percy's and Spinney's are a pleasant walk away through the woods (or along the beach) and there are lots of things to do in the immediate area - hiking, restaurants, shopping in Freeport, exploring Bath, Portland and the little towns up the coast.

My family is always sad to leave Rockledge. The kids always ask to come back, despite the long drive from Toronto.

Rockledge cottage, Popham Beach, ME

  • 4 of 5
We again enjoyed another fun vacation at Popham. This was the 3rd time that we stayed at Rockledge cottage. The newly renovated kitchen was very functional and the cottage was clean and "ship shape". The views from the cottage are spectacular. Bring your binoculars. Popham beach provides opportunities for all family members for fun and exploration. Our favorite is a 1-1/2 mile walk to Fox island at low tide. Local restaurants are very good with 2 within walking distance and others 15 minutes away by car. Percy's store also has limited groceries along with excellent Lobster rolls. Rockledge is a rustic Maine beach cottage that is ideal for a fun summer vacation.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5
It was nice to have everything there in the house, all you needed were your beach towels, personal items and what ever groceries you wanted. Short walk (or can drive) to Persey's Gen. store and one of my favorites "Spinney's" restaurant, excellent seafood, food three meals a day if you want. The kitchen was very nice with all the necessities. Good quality water which is a huge plus on the ocean. Very private with spectacular views. Right on the beach and very close to both low tide sand bars for Wood Isl. and Fox Isl., lovely to walk out to them. Although I wanted to be away, it was good to be able to have my cell phone work as well. Popham Beach is the best beach in Maine in my opinion.

Rustically Beautiful

  • 4 of 5
This lovely, yet somewhat rustic cottage provided a wonderful setting for our family in our favorite coastal place. We found the cottage to be clean and well stocked with all that we needed for a great week at the beach. The cottage has great ocean views from most rooms and the small but cozy living room is a good place to linger, listen and watch the waves roll in on the beach. The upstairs bunk room felt like a tree house and was great for our sons but not recommended for young children as the steps are steep. Overall, we had a great week. We found, as always, Percys to be great for take out and lobster.
