What to do:: Popham is located in Phippsburg, a charming coastal Maine town. Popham's pristine beachfront, island lighthouses, and busy boat traffic on the river will enchant visitors. Bring fishing poles, kites, and bathing suits to enjoy the ocean and the lake. Bring sturdy shoes to explore Popham's 2 historic forts and Phippsburg's many nature preserves. Don't forget your camera. The coast of Maine offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. People come to Popham for one of the most picturesque beaches in New England, but there is so much else to do. Just down the road is an oceanside resort with tennis, golf, a kayaking center, and a new day spa. The charming town of Bath beckons with a variety of restaurants, galleries, specialty stores, and antique shopping. Discover Maine’s seafaring history at the Maine Maritime Museum on the shores of the Kennebec River where you can also chose from several boat tours. Sample locally grown produce at the Bath and Brunswick Farmers Markets.
Where to eat:: After a full day’s activity, you will anticipate returning to the screen porch to relax and enjoy a beverage as the sun sinks into the horizon and lights go on in the lighthouses. With a fully stocked kitchen, you can cook up a family feast. Live lobsters can be purchased in the Popham village or off the boat in the scenic fishing village of West Point. Perhaps you’d like to try a clam bake on the beach or maybe barbeque some steaks out back. If you’re feeling less ambitious, there are 2 casual waterfront restaurants in Popham, and plenty of dining options nearby in Phippsburg from formal dining to family style fare. All have memorable water views and wonderful seafood as well as additional landlubber choices. Further down the road, Bath, Brunswick, and Georgetown offer a full range of possibilities. Complete information about dining and local activities is available when you arrive at the cottage. Be the first to enjoy the newest Popham guest accommodation.
You'll be back!: Long before the first European traders plied their trade on the Kennebec River, the Abenaki tribe of Native Americans summered at Popham in two villages at the mouth of the river. In the early 1880’s, Popham attracted summer tourists from Boston and other cities who came by steamboat to enjoy the cool sea air on one of the longest sand beaches in the state. Today, you can continue that centuries-long tradition of enjoying summer at Popham. We believe you will discover the serenity and beauty that have attracted so many visitors for so many years. Like those before you, we expect that you will return year after year as a Popham summer vacation becomes a cherished family tradition. We welcome you to enjoy your family vacation in our unique property situated between lake and ocean.

Sea Breeze Cottage was built in 2007 to accommodate the owner’s large family, the fifth generation to spend summers at Popham. Since family members are currently living in locations across the country, the owner makes the cottage available to guests when family is unable to be there. Guests appreciate the high quality standards and personalized touches of this comfortable cottage with its unique family character.
Sea Breeze cottage is the only property at Popham that sits between Hunnewell Beach on the Atlantic Ocean, and the shores of Silver Lake, a scenic freshwater pond on the Town Road. The owner grew up spending summers on the beach at Popham, and her husband grew up in a house on a Connecticut lake. This location is the perfect fit for the couple who enjoys long walks on the sandy beach as well as boating on the lake.
