Cute cottage near Popham
This is a very cute cottage, ideal for 1-2 people. My hubby and I stayed for 2 nights on the fourth of July with short notice. The owner, a local lady and true Mainer, is very sweet. She brought us 2 beach chairs (we flew into ME from out of state), a lobster pot, a floor fan (it was hot & humid after a month of rain), a corkscrew, and a bedside table & lamp upon request. The kitchen is lovely, living room small but cozy, bedroom small but cozy, bathroom shower small but adequate. The lovely owners make up for the sulfur smell of the (artesian well?) water--but hey, this is coastal Maine! Our input to the owner was to provide a bit more storage space for guests, such as a pedestal for luggage in the BR and several hooks in the hallway for wet towels and things to dry. They are probably working on that now. As I say, they were very hospitable, which makes all the difference in a rental. If you understand what a Maine cottage is all about, this is a quintessential Popham area cottage--but newer! Leave your digital devices at home and bring a good book to dig into. Very quiet here. We were awakened one morning by a young deer squeaking for her Mom. Picky city folk who hate quiet and the country, and who expect and need wi-fi and cell coverage 24/7, please stay away--this aint for you! But--people who love coastal Maine, like to relax in nature and "get away from it all" but stay near the beach in a simple cottage with access to local lobstermen, organic farms, artists, New England shipbuilding history & museums, and nature hikes--this is for you! - review from a relocated New England gal
