This is a wonderful property located literally on Popham Beach. The cottage has modern amenities (cable tv, wifi, etc.) but maintains a very rustic charm. It has plenty of room for a family not to feel confined and lots of windows for ocean breezes and views.
My teen daughter and I spend a week here for her birthday and just loved it.
As with any cottage near the ocean, there are pros and cons, non of which we found a problem.
PROS: -- on the beach, within walking distance to the local restaurant Spinney's (very good serving B, L, D)
-- kitchen has everything you need + a washer and dryer
-- a separate tv room with a door to shut out kids if you need to :-)
-- the beach is long and flat and perfect for small kids and walking your dog
-- property manager was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with
CONS: -- water has very metallic smell when showering (common with oceanfront properties with a well)
-- must bring and use bottled water for drinking and cooking (again, not really an issue)
-- neighbors are very sweet but so close next door that when they're home you can hear everything
-- property outside (porch furniture) is not comfortable and is a bit run down - when we arrived it was covered in dust, pollen, and spider webs. We just took a hose to it all and was fine, but the cleaning crew needs to step this up a bit.
Overall, it's a great spot to make memories with your loved ones. If you like "authentic" then this is the place.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, so glad you and your daughter enjoyed the cottage. We had hired a new cleaning person just before your stay and sorry for what you had experienced and have taken note. Take Care.
