Oceanfront rustic sea captain's 1840 home at mouth of Kennebec River on the Atlantic Ocean by Atkins Bay. Great view of islands and Fort Popham from all rooms. Lots of lawn area, great tide changes, sand bar, birding, and mud flats. A child's paradise for exploring. Clamming, fishing, and birding are also popular. A beach pass for all Maine State Parks comes with the rental. Also available, high speed wireless internet and deluxe cable TV. The property is 4 miles from Popham Beach, 14 miles to Bath, Maine, and 35 miles to Freeport (L.L.Bean).
Owners being on property was more of a plus than I thought it would originally be since they were friendly and helpful, yet unobtrusive. Beds were comfortable and rooms were nice. View and setting was great. Bathrooms could use a little work. Water pressure was great, though.(and drinkable) So many shoreline properties have water problems, generally.
As a family we are rarely in the house but it was plenty big enough for when we were there. Good WIFI, cable, etc.
First time I'd seen 'mosquito eaters', (a propane tank that generates Carbon Dioxide and vacuums them up when they are attracted to it), (green-head flies, too). He had a number of them that he move around. They were much appreciated since there are usually a lot of mosquitos, in Maine, in general. This past year was better since they were in a drought scenario.
State Park Pass was included, a good thing since we have usually had to buy one.
Close to Popham beach and plenty of great restaurants, around, too.
State Park Pass included with rental - for all state parks including Popham Beach (4mi), Freeport Outlet shopping (29mi),
Marine Maritime Museum (10mi), Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens (31mi), Wilbur Preserve at Cox's Head (walking distance with spectacular views!)
BIRD WATCHING - Great bird watching on and off the property bald eagles, osprey, a variety of gulls, terns, plovers, wimbrills, egrets, sandpipers as well as forest and meadow birds
