Quintessential maine cottage

  • 5 of 5

In the 30 years since my family has vacationed in the area, we have never relaxed and enjoyed it as much as this week. Hiking the area, watching clammers, and beautiful photos of fox and sunsets. Every little thing was provided from towels and linens to games and cookware. The bathroom renovation is so much better than the pictures. Home is comfortable and the property beautiful. The owners are generous with their space. Kids had plenty of space to play, run along the sand bar and swim while the adults cooked a plentiful lobster bake and enjoyed the views. Space for everyone. I especially appreciated the one level living for my elderly parents. For my first HomeAway stay, the bar has been set very high.

The perfect vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for my family. It is located off of a quiet dirt road, and it has the most beautiful views of the ocean and Popham beach. My family has been coming to Phippsburg for years for our annual vacation, and have been looking for the perfect rental that we could come back to each summer. We certainly found it with this gem of a cottage! It was clean and cozy and we felt at home immediately. The owners are kind and responsive, and we quickly reserved it again for the following summer. I highly recommend this vacation rental!!

Peaceful and serene

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect with views of the bay from the living room and large deck. It was such a treat to look out in the morning to see if the tide was out or in and the moon light shimmering on the water after dark was breathtaking. Between that and the proximaty to the beach, we found this to be an ideal location.Our surroundings were completely quiet all week with only one neighbor within site of the cottage. The kitchen and living room is a,mple in size and amenities. Though the bedrooms are on the small size they are adequate with dressers and closets in each. We would highly recommend this cottage for other renters.
