Pretty much everything you could want for a Maine vacation

  • 5 of 5

Classic old school Maine Yankee home, gorgeous ocean and Fort Popham view, great for 3 adult couples (our family). Beautiful views from the brick patio. Well equipped kitchen including giant lobster pot (handled six 2 1/2 pounders) and dining room for 6. Jeff was very helpful.

Beautiful house and view.

  • 4 of 5

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.
