HOUSE BY THE POCKET BEACH AND COVE

Phippsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

This three bedroom cottage sits at the shore of a pocket beach and cove, facing Small Point Harbor and the open ocean. Located in a small fishing village. It is the perfect spot if you'd like to just watch the ocean, paint, explore our tidal pools, walk on the beach, kayak, or sail. We have a great place to sit by on the lanai outside the house, overlooking the beach, as well as an umbrella table and chairs on the back deck. The house is located only 1 mile from a large town beach, 2 miles from and organic grocery and deli, and 2 1/2 miles from a golf resort. It is five miles from Popham State Park. A few good restaurants nearby. Bath, with great shops and restaurants is 11 miles away. You can stock up there on most anything, including the New York Times, beer and wine, and great baked goods. If you have a hankering for Starbucks, it is 15 miles away. Brunswick, 20 miles away has a great independent book store as well as a fine art museum on the campus of Bowdoin College.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Great Escape for the Summer!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late in the afternoon with tired kids in tow and the place was like a breath of fresh air. It's bright upstairs with an amazing view of the ocean from the living room/dining room - it has a lovely cottage feel to it, cozy and clean and there was plenty of room for the kids to play upstairs and downstairs. There is also space if you want to read quietly. We were so happy to be able to go right outside to the beach and to take a walk nearby on the rocks above the beach. There is endless exploring and there are other wonderful beaches nearby. The town of Bath is very close and Portland and other towns are an easy drive away. We loved our stay and hope to return during another summer!

Perfect for both a relaxing and active vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing vacation and loved the perfect location of the cove cottage. The cottage itself is well designed and decorated, the rooms are comfortable and inviting - and the view from the living room is glorious! We enjoyed swimming, kayaking (we brought our own) and even fishing from the beach..which is just steps from the house. Hours were spent reading and relaxing on the back deck. The cottage location provides easy access to great hiking (Morse Mt) and beautiful ocean beaches (Popham State Park). We'll definitely return next summer!

Great location, stunning view

  • 5 of 5
We were 5 adults and 2 toddlers. Our first impression on arriving at the house was surprise at being so close to the neighbors. But as we got in the house we were pleased at the 'cottage' feel of the house and the view out the main living area was spectacular! Over the course of the week we felt very comfortable here. The house felt very private. The open kitchen/dining/living room area was ideal for us to hang out together. The bedrooms are small but big enough to get away from the commotion if any one wanted to. The large open area in the basement was great for our kids to build lego or run around in. Having a beach in the front yard was a real treat. Only on Saturday morning were there people by the water but that didn't take away from the overall peaceful feeling of the place. We did numerous little car trips to neighboring towns and beaches. Nicely located between Rockport and Portland we were able to visit both. All in all we loved our stay and highly recommend it.

Great location !

  • 5 of 5
This property is unique as it is ocean front with a small sandy beach in the cove. Perfect for a swim and for launching a kayak. You can even go fishing on the rocky point near the house. Moreover, the property is only 10 min (by car) from famous Popham beach, one of the greatest beaches in Maine. The house provides spectacular views of the cove. My 8-yr old son really enjoyed going to the beach every day and so did we

Spectacular Setting

  • 5 of 5
We have rented the Cove House for 13 years and have loved every minute...so much so, we often return for a second visit in the fall. Located in a small fishing village, the quiet cul de sac is a lovely summer community where you find friendly neighbors who share the beautiful natural resources (including access to the wonderful cove in front of the house). The location is quintessential Maine where there is a rare combination of rocky outcroppings and a small sand beach (ideal for swimming, launching kayaks, and searching for sea glass). The cottage is comfortably furnished and view from the second floor living space is spectacular!

Great Get a Way

  • 4 of 5
Great location, great views and wildlife, close to Freeport shopping and scenic Booth Bay Harbor. Easy Kayak access and swimming right in front of the house. My only complaint is that the cove and beach in front of the house was advertised as private and it is not! Most days starting around 7am people would come to walk their dogs, stroll, swim, launch boats ect. We still had a great time and enjoyed the place but if you are looking for total privacy pick another house.

Owner's Response: Mark: great that you had a good time, but sorry you found too much activity on the beach in front of the house. The beach is, in fact, our property, with the exception of a town boat launch that cuts across it. We prefer to welcome use by our neighbors, rather than to refuse to let them enjoy the property.
