Best vacation in a long time!

  • 5 of 5

The friendly and gracious owners did a great job of coordinating the new modern addition with the original traditional Maine cottage. Very comfortable and all necessities were provided for. Fantastic views of the beach from the beautiful wrap around Victorian porch, as well as the upstairs bedroom windows and deck. We spent day time hours enjoying the beach, including fishing for mackerel, playing in the waves, and making sandcastles; visiting with family on the porch; and exploring nearby Forts Popham and Baldwin. After sundown we'd wind down in front of the cozy living room fireplace making puzzles or reading. It's always so nice to breathe the clean salty air and hear the sound of the waves. The whole family appreciated the most relaxing, rejuvenating vacation we've had in a long time and highly recommend it.

Wonderful relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this home for a week. The views were stunning and the house was a treat. There was plenty of room for the kids and adults and the accomodations were very comfortable. We loved the new addition, but we also enjoyed the older part of the house. It was really neat to have the sense of the original cottage and its history and yet have the comfort and space with the newer addition. Walking to the beach was a breeze and the beach itself was a rare treat. Not crowded at all and it was an easy walk to the state park as well as the old fort and Spinney's restaurant and Percy's general store. We only drove our car once during the whole week and that was to drive to Bath and check it out.

The rocking chairs on the wide back porch were a great place to eat breakfast and there were beach chairs and some buckets and shovels for the kids to use at the beach. The upstairs balcony was a wonderful place to warm yourself in the sun and watch the world go by. We saw fish flying out of the water and seals peeking out of the water.

Overall this place was fabulous! Linda and Jon were so helpful and pleasant to work with. They called the first day to make sure eveything was ok, we greatly appreciated that. We highly recommend this place for anyone looking to relax and have a real vacation.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This home is gorgeous, with stunning views. The newer addition is divine. The "old" part is really cool as it's the original home and has all the charm and character of an original Maine beach cottage. The owners were wonderful and pleasant. Not much to do in the area when it's not summer (we went in fall), but we enjoyed wonderful long walks on the beach and the surrounding area and a few trips to Freeport and L.L. Bean. Relaxing vacation!

Lovely house and location

  • 4 of 5

We've been to Popham many times, but this was one of the nicest (hard to top our honeymoon, 25 years ago...). The location is great, not that there are really any bad places on Popham, but being a little further away from the beach was nice in that it was a bit quieter than even quiet Popham. The house was very nicely done and equipped, although we never did find a butter dish (it was easy enough to use a small plate - just seemed a bit odd) and there wasn't much for grill utensils.

The wide porch got lots of use and we spent most of our indoor time in the "addition" where the eat-in kitchen and little sitting area is, or in the living room by the gas fireplace.

We will definitely consider coming back here.

The Villages, FL


  • 5 of 5

We are originally from Maine and my dream had always been an extended stay at Popham. This cottage is excetionally charming and a very close walk to the beach. The wrap around porch is wonderful. We spent much of time out there enjoying the ocean view, having our morning coffee, and loving the sunrises and sunsets. We had the opportunity to see an Arleigh Burke destroyer coming down the Kennebec and on her way to her sea trials. What an experience that was. We used the wood stove two evenings that were cold and damp and the house was toasty warm in no time. We made trips to the fort and would recommend Spinney's Restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The only negative are the stairs. They would be difficult for someone with disabilities or problems with climbing stairs. Overall, the house is wonderful and we had a great week.

Owner's Response: In 2011 we built a major addition to the cottage including a new gourmet/gathering kitchen on the first floor and a master bedroom with bath and a deck on the second floor. The addition includes a stairway that provides access to both the new bedroom and the existing bedrooms. The original 1880s stairs are still there because they are part of the historical character of the cottage but they are not necessary to reach any of the bedrooms. We also added a gas fireplace in the living room and a gas furnace for extended seasonal use.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A great cottage filled with charm & character. It was the porch that first caught our attention. Rocking chairs facing the ocean sounded perfect. And this was a great spot for reading, card games and beverages. The cottage is set back from the beach, so there is privacy, yet is a quick walk to the beach. The dining room was perfect for lobster dinners and the bedrooms catch the ocean breezes. We were there at the beginning of June and did use the wood stove which made it toasty on the foggy evenings. We recommend Percy’s, just down the beach, for lobsters. This is a beautiful spot.
