The first floor consists of a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, full bath/laundry, living room and a glassed-in porch across the front of the home. The second floor has four bedrooms and a full bath. Three of bedrooms have a double bed in them and one bedroom has a double bed and twin bed. The home is fully furnished with many antiques. The home has classic charm with up-to-date features.
There is a spacious lawn in front and back with a gas grill and picnic table. Plenty of parking.
The location of this house was great, walking distance to Fort Popham and Popham beach. The ocean water was extremely cold for August, even for Maine, maybe because of the river. The house would have been more spacious if there weren't so many large pieces of furniture filling up every room. A large old cook stove that was not even hooked up blocked most of the kitchen and made cooking difficult. Several huge hutches filled the dining room leaving no space to walk. The house was in need of some fixing up and most furniture was campy and run down. We stayed with 6 adults and two small children and quarters were close. There was always a line for the one stall shower downstairs. You are paying for the location.
First relax on the porch (with cocktails, of course!). Enjoy some of the most colorful panoramic sunsets while the seals frolic in the bay. You are right in Popham village which has a library, church, small store and go no further to experience the freshest seafood at Spinney's Restaurant & Deli. Pick your own lobster, or they'll pack them to go for you to cook. They also have great pasta dishes and mouthwatering prime rib on Friday and Saturday nights, homemade rolls, not to mention their fresh ground burgers... and save room for blueberry pie. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Explore historical Fort Popham and Fort Baldwin. Go hiking, fishing, biking, golfing, bird-watching, kayaking, and take advantage of the boat charters (visiting Sequin Island lighthouse).
You must walk Popham's three mile long beach and at low tide walk out to Pond Island and Fox Island.
