Guestbook comments from the owner

Wanted to send you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed Oceanview Cottage for those 2 weeks. The weather was great with only a couple of overcast days and better yet, my 2 sons were able to join us (1 for most of the 2 weeks while the other for a long weekend). We all enjoyed our time at Popham and have even begun to talk about next year

Near Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Ms Nusbaum, Re: sept 2013. I want to thank you so much for sharing your wonderful and peaceful home with my husband and I and also with our 2 dogs (a Mountain Bernese and 1 Newfoundlander who by the way was the syar of the beach during our stay....photos and all...). It was a special time for me, since i've lost my father and was overworked and tired with everything at the time. But I must say that a miracle happen because your place was like a part of paradise: quiet, confortable, the view and most of all it felt like home. Thank you so much again.

Popham Beach

  • 5 of 5

Although it rained for most of our stay, we had a marvelous time, exploring the beach, the cottage was clean & comfortable. We enjoyed lobsters, the quiet & the good times at my 50th class reunion in Bath. There is much to see an do around the area rain or shine! It is a short distance from the Fort & the small village of Popham beach community. The views from the cottage were fantastic, the full moon a plus.

No crowds here! Things have not changed much in the years that I spent my childhood on this beach! It was like a walk back in time & the cottage was the frosting on the cake.

Most Beautiful Beach and View

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed and more. It was well equipped with chairs on the deck as well as for the beach. All that you need is a beach towel, your sunglasses and a smile on your face. The washer, dryer and dishwasher were very convenient. This cottage has the most gorgeous view of the Atlantic with lighthouse and islands. At low tide you can walk to the islands on the sand bars. It is so peaceful to hear the waves on the beach for a restful nights sleep. The filtered water worked great for kitchen use and the shower felt so refreshing after a day at the beach. The WI-Fi kept us connected with friends and family and was much faster than many hotels that I have stayed in. It is very comfortable sitting inside in the evening, the television worked great but it was also fun to just watch the sun set and then see the moon out over the water.

A very relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

We love this time of year! It's before everyone else shows up for the summer. We took long walks on the beach and not see more than a few people out and about. It's not too cold and not too warm. Perfect weather to play tennis on the court out front!

We found soooooo many cool shells on the beach. It's nice that the place has those big pots because we put them to good use. 2 lobster feasts in a week! We drove up into Phippsburg and picked up so much lobster for such a cheap price from a real lobster fisherman! I think we got 6 lobsters for what I paid for 1 lobster dinner in Boston last year.

We already booked our week for next year.

All the comforts of home.

  • 4 of 5

My family has vacationed at Popham Beach since the late 1800's, and it has actually become harder with each passing generation and year to find a comfortable place to stay that won't break the bank. (The ecology has kept development at near-zero.) Ocean View cottage provided a very relaxing vacation for my family of four. We had a dishwasher, washer and dryer (unheard of!); the beds were extremely comfortable; we could light a fire in the wood-stove in the evenings. The kitchen was well-stocked, with updated appliances, and the cleaning was provided both before and after our stay. A picturesque path past the lupines took us straight out to the beach, where a walk in either direction always affords breathtaking views. A stay at Ocean View feels like a visit with friends.

Located at the mouth of the Kennebec River, this area has one of the United States' most beautiful soft sand beaches. This is a place that beachcombers, swimmers and fishermen adore. The Kennebec watershed remains largely undeveloped. Bald eagles, mink, turtles, osprey, herons, piping plovers and other shorebirds abound. Watch the herds of seals folic in the surf as they migrate north for the summer and south for the winter. Fish for striped bass. Buy lobsters at the local pound and bring them to the cottage for cooking, or eat fabulous fresh seafood at one of the local restaurants. Enjoy a tennis game on the private court, cooled by ocean breezes. Explore the seven local lighthouses. Body surf, boogie board or stroll on the beach or just relax on the sands.

Notes:
This is a great place for people who entertain themselves and like the outdoors. If you need to be entertained, this area is not for you. It is remote from town and is undeveloped. We do not rent to smokers. Fully insulated, with a wood stove, this beach house is comfortable during the spring and fall fishing seasons, as well as during the hot summer beach months. Pets may be permitted upon request and consultation. The loft area is not included in the rental space, and renters are not permitted in that area. Persons are expected to leave the cottage as they found it-- replacing staples they used, and tidying up.
