Portland and Casco Bay Area House Rental Photos and Description

3 large bedrooms with views, 3 sparkling bathrooms, comfortably sleeps 6 to 8

For guests who want to plan ahead, we are now accepting bookings for the 2017 season at 2016 prices. At Sea Breeze Cottage, you won't have to settle for a vacation that's just near Popham. At Sea Breeze, the beach is mere steps from your front door! Sea Breeze, a recently built coastal cottage offers a memorable vacation on one of Maine's loveliest beaches. The cottage has been carefully furnished and equipped to compliment its stunning setting. Located on 3.5 private wooded acres, the home faces the sandy beach on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and backs to the edge of Silver Lake. Whether your vacation dream is a salt water fantasy or fresh water fun, a stay at Sea Breeze Cottage allows your dreams to become your vacation reality.

Inviting interiors with inspiring art and furnishings will make you feel right at home the minute you step through the door. Immediately you will be able to relax and begin enjoying the Popham experience. Gorgeous views of lake and ocean greet you from most windows and the ever-changing sea and sky is captivating. You may awaken to a beautiful sunrise over the water and end your day with a spectacular summer sunset.

The large, well furnished living room with sunny windows, and stone wood burning fireplace has French doors opening to an expansive deck facing the ocean. Adjacent to the living room is an inviting dining room that comfortably seats eight. Open to the dining room, the fully equipped kitchen is large enough for many sou chefs to help prepare a savory meal for your crowd .

Down the hall guests will find a den with windows on three sides and an adjacent marble showered bathroom. Completing the first floor are a laundry room and an enormous screen porch with ocean views.

Up a broad staircase, three generously proportioned bedrooms off a central family room offer a peaceful haven for a good night's sleep. Two bedrooms share a tiled hall bath. The spacious master bedroom has views of ocean and lake. A large walk-in closet and full marble bath will pamper every guest. For a great start to the morning, guests can relax on the sundeck balcony located off the family room and overlooking the ocean. As the world comes to life, it's the perfect place for the morning's first cup of coffee. And, at the end of the day, there's no better place from which to admire the star filled sky on a warm summer night.

What to do: Popham is located in Phippsburg, a charming coastal Maine town. Popham's pristine beachfront, island lighthouses, and busy boat traffic on the river will enchant visitors. Many of our guests find that it's so hard to leave Popham and all it offers, that most of their vacation time is spent right here. At Sea Breeze there is bocce, Ladder Ball, Frisbee, kite flying, beach combing, wiffle ball, fishing, swimming, surfing, skim boarding, etc on the beach, swimming, boating, and fishing on the lake, and horseshoes and ping pong at the cottage. Bring fishing poles, kites, and bathing suits and be prepared to enjoy both ocean and lake. Bring sturdy shoes to explore Popham's 2 historic forts and Phippsburg's many nature preserves. Don't forget your camera. The coast of Maine offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. People come to Popham for one of the most picturesque beaches in New England, but there is also so much else to do nearby.

Just down the road is an oceanside resort with tennis, golf, a fitness center, a kayaking center, a salt water pool, and an waterfront day spa. Just up the road, the charming town of Bath beckons with a variety of restaurants, galleries, specialty stores, and antique shopping. Discover Maine’s seafaring history at the Bath Maine Maritime Museum on the shores of the Kennebec River where you can also choose from several boat tours. Don't forget to sample locally grown produce at the Bath and Brunswick Farmers Markets. Of course, the Bath/Brunswick area also offers movie theaters, bowling, miniature golf and a golf driving range with lessons. All ages will enjoy the widely acclaimed Coastal Maine Botanical Garden in Boothbay, winner of a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, a must-do day trip about an hour away up the coast.

Serious shoppers will want to make a trip to Freeport, original home of L.L.Bean, open 24/7. Freeport is also filled with a large variety of outlet shops. Yankee Magazine selected Freeport as the Best Shopping Town in New England. Just a bit further down the road, visit Portland, Maine's largest city. In addition to Portland's unique boutiques in the Old Port district, Portland has several interesting museums and it is now a nationally recognized hub of cuisine, a " gastro-tourism paradise" according to the Boston Globe.

Where to eat: After a full day’s activity, you will anticipate returning to the screen porch at Sea Breeze to relax and enjoy a beverage as the sun sinks into the horizon and lights go on in the lighthouses. With a fully stocked kitchen, you can cook up a family feast. Live lobsters can be purchased in the Popham village or off the boat in the scenic fishing village of West Point. Perhaps you’d like to try a clam bake on the beach or maybe barbeque some steaks on the front deck. If you’re feeling less ambitious, there are 2 casual waterfront restaurants in Popham, and plenty of dining options nearby in Phippsburg from formal dining to family style fare. All have memorable water views and wonderful seafood as well as additional landlubber choices. Just beyond Phippsburg, Bath, Brunswick, and Georgetown offer a full range of possibilities. Complete information about dining, shopping, and local activities is available when you arrive at the cottage. At the end of your Sea Breeze stay, you'll go home with stories to tell and memories to cherish.

You'll be back!: Long before the first European traders plied their trade on the Kennebec River, the Abenaki tribe of Native Americans summered at Popham in two villages at the mouth of the river. In the early 1880’s, Popham attracted summer tourists from Boston and other cities who came by steamboat to enjoy the cool sea air on one of the longest sand beaches in the state. Today, you can continue that centuries-long tradition of enjoying summer at Popham. We believe you will discover the serenity and beauty that have attracted so many visitors for so many years. Like those before you, we expect that you will return year after year as a Popham summer vacation becomes a cherished family tradition. We welcome you to enjoy your family vacation in our unique property situated between lake and ocean.

About CyberRentals customer since 2003

The owner grew up in Southern California, spending every summer at her grandmother's Popham cottage in Maine. After marriage, she and her husband lived abroad in five different countries where their five children were born. Regardless of their residence location, they returned every year to spend the summer at Popham. When the two family cottages could no longer accommodate the growing family, Sea Breeze Cottage was built in 2007 to enable the fifth generation to spend summers with the family at Popham. Since family members are currently living in locations across the country, the owner makes the cottage available to guests when family members are unable to be there. Their guests appreciate the high quality standards and personalized touches of this unique cottage with its comfortable family atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

Sea Breeze cottage is the only property at Popham that borders on both Hunnewell Beach on the Atlantic Ocean, and the shores of Silver Lake, a scenic freshwater pond on the Phippsburg Town Road. Since the owner grew up on the beach at Popham, and her husband grew up in a house on a Connecticut lake, the Sea Breeze location is the perfect fit for the couple who enjoys long walks on the sandy beach as well as boating and fishing on the lake. Their guests, too, find something special for every family member at Sea Breeze Cottage.

a dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

"now don't set your expectations too high" warned my husband. In fact they were exceeded! As we stepped out of the car, potted flowers along with those in the garden greeted us. We walked up to the porch and through the glass front door and could see right through the glass back door to more porch and more garden, with dunes further on. The front-to-back stone-tile foyer with its handy bench and coat pegs divided the living area on the left from the TV den, bath, laundry room and stairs to the right. The kitchen is lovely and perfectly equipped, the dining area seats 8 with ease, the living room is beautifully furnished and has a fireplace. The porch runs the length of that area, and beyond is a glassed in sun room with windows that open to let in the sounds and smells of the sea, which you can see just beyond the grassy dunes. Upstairs there is an open area from which you can access the balcony. At one end are two beautiful twinned bed rooms, one in sea-green tones and the other with a playful child-pleasing colors, and a beautiful tiled bath, and at the other is the master suite, front-to-back bedroom and poster bed, walk-in closed and marble bath. Altogether a delight, with a canoe to boat on the lake on one side, and the shortest of strolls to the private beach out back. Every morning we went beachcombing, which would take us toward the Popham Fort and town area. Every day we enjoyed watching our grandsons excavate with their dump trucks and dash into the water. Three generations under one special roof for a perfect vacation. In every respect a dream come true!

Nicest house in the area!

  • 5 of 5

My multiple generational family have gone to Popham for years and have rented this house 4 times. It is perfect. Top notch furnishings, linens, kitchen supplies and a great location right next to a private beach. The screened in porch is perfect for when the Mosquitos are hungry, and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean is the best. The owners are wonderful people who know how to make the perfect vacation home!

Beautiful house on Popham Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful house on Popham Beach. Mary, the owner, was helpful before our arrival and was quick to respond to our questions. She met us at the house and made us feel at home. The house itself is lovely, with beautiful but comfortable furnishings. We were especially impressed with how comfortable the bed was, how fluffy the towels were, and how well the kitchen was outfitted! The house is quite spacious and airy and everything was in impeccable condition. We enjoyed the upstairs balcony, the screened porch and the large outdoor porch for reading and relaxing. The best part of the vacation though, was walking outside and having Popham Beach right there. Popham is a special place and it is easy to spend hours strolling on the beach or sitting and watching the waves and the islands. We walked the beach to Spinney's restaurant for lunch/dinner several times and enjoyed the food and casual atmosphere. I would very much recommend this property to others. It is just what I would want for my own house on the beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. More than that, thank you ever so much for taking such good care of our cottage - Edie must be a good teacher! I'm delighted you had such a good week despite notably less than perfect weather. We, too, think Popham is a very special place and we are always so pleased when others are able to enjoy it. You are always welcome to return and stay with us again.

The sands of Popham

This distinctive property has something for everyone. A path through the dune grass leads to miles of white sand gently sloping to the ocean's edge. Maine is known as having some of the highest tides in the world (distance between high tide and low tide) which at Popham results in a very broad stretch of hard sand at low tide. This is great for sunbathing, long walks, beach combing, kite flying, surf casting and all kinds of games. If the ocean feels too chilly for a long swim, try the warm lake behind the cottage. A canoe and double kayak are available there for your use. Private dirt roads lead from Sea Breeze to the small general store for a morning paper or a quick snack. Popham has two casual restaurants within biking distance. Both serve delicious meals overlooking the scenic Kennebec River. We have books, puzzles, games, and DVD’s for indoor fun. Sea Breeze also provides a horseshoe court and a ping pong table, both fun family games. Just minutes away, guests can enjoy an oceanside golf course, tennis, and boat rentals at Sebasco Harbor Resort. Do save time for relaxation. The cottage’s two open decks and the large screen porch are ideal spots to enjoy doing a crossword puzzle, a jigsaw puzzle, or reading a good book with the soothing rhythm of the sea's gentle waves. An ideal venue for your vacation, Sea Breeze Cottage offers active recreation as well as serene relaxation.

Other Activities: kayaking, canoeing
