Wake up to southwesterly views of Casco Bay, breathe in the salt air, and watch the comings and goings of local lobstermen as you adjust to a slower pace. In fact, any one of them would be happy to provide you with dinner fresh from the boat. Although not directly on the ocean, the cottage does have water views. Access is down a short right of way where kayaks, which may be rented nearby and delivered, can be launched from a small pebble beach. Adirondack chairs and a cedar picnic table for quests overlook the water. The beach, with its tide pools, sea glass, and other treasures, is a magnet for children of all ages, and one that will provide hours of entertainment. This beautifully renovated, immaculate cottage at the mouth of the New Meadows River is only an hour north or Portland ...Wake up to southwesterly views of Casco Bay, breathe in the salt air, and watch the comings and goings of local lobstermen as you adjust to a slower pace.

The cottage was very comfortable but had limited amount of tap water usage. The beach access was not convenient for lounging and picnic area. My grand-kids spent many hours on the seaweek covered beach looking for crabs, shells and so forth. They had a great time going to the Popham Beach State Park for swimming and riding the waves. Not what I was expecting, but we enjoyed our time there.

Long-standing coastal traditions often call for guests to be a little more conservative with water usage than they might be at home. As indicated in the rental listing, shore “access is down a short right of way” where there is a small pebble beach. I was happy to see that Louise's 10 and 12-year-old grandsons “had a blast”, according to her note in the guestbook. The boys had quite a stash of goodies collected from that beach when I met them mid-week & hopefully they made some great memories!

My wife and I along with our 36 yr old son stayed recently and had a wonderful time. The cottage was fully equipped, comfortable and meticulously clean. Water views and a very short walk to their waterfront. Another short walk or drive to Anna's Water's Edge Restaurant for fresh catch fish or lobster. Nearby golf, kayak rentals and a fabulous private Totman's beach and famous Popham state beach (free passes supplied). Hike?; how about Morse Mt and then to the beach below. You won't be disappointed.

Children and grandchildren can be spread out over several states, and getting the whole family together for a week in Maine during the summer just about guarantees a good time! Phippsburg enjoys a blend of little fishing villages, hiking trails, beautiful beaches, and several seasonal restaurants, all within a short drive. There's plenty to do for everyone, and a cozy cottage to come back to at the end of the day.

Wonderful, clean, homey small cottage. BE AWARE, however, it is not on the water (as represented), but sits behind a row of houses and any view of the water is blocked by high hedges and overgrowth, which is a shame. There is no deck and you have to walk down a right of way to sit at the water and enjoy your coffee or an afternoon glass of wine.

I work very hard to make sure that my cottage is well-kept, warm, and inviting. However, nowhere in my listing do I claim to have a deck, and although I thought my description explained that guests have to use a right of way to reach the ocean, unfortunately that wasn't clear to this guest. I have rewritten that section to make certain that even if it's read quickly, there isn't any confusion.

What a great place to have a vacation. The beaches were close and clean. Our viset to Bath was a great time had by all. There was lots to do and great weather. The lobster shacks right down the street was the best ever. The cottage itself was very nice. We all had a great time.

We are certainly blessed with beautiful beaches in Phippsburg. Our local Totman Cove is a real gem, so private and peaceful, and Popham Beach is at the other end of the spectrum with lots of waves and miles of sand to walk and explore.

This is the perfect ideal house to stay in while away from your own home! The beds are wonderful to sleep in, sunroom relaxing to enjoy family and friends, kitchen very well ready to cook anything. The shells were the icing on the cake! We have some wonderful treasures to go with our summer photos. We are keeping this home rental bookmarked for the future! :)

A copy of the message send to the owner of the cottage We are coming back from Sebasco and Popham Beach last Saturday. A beautiful week and a big storm when we drove from Freeport to Sebasco (like a storm of snow in Quebec City but with the rain). Thanks for your cottage; that was rustic but confortable, like we love that. My children appreciated Internet, one of them, webmaster, worked each day; we call that "la vie moderne" (modern life!). I keep the secret of Popham Beach for ourselves and our friends; when the Quebeckers go in Maine, they go to Old Orchard, Wells or big and crowded beaches like that. I will recommand your cottages to my friends. Merci et à la prochaine. Gilles Émond Quebec City

When we entered the house there was a wonderful loaf of blueberry coffee cake waiting for us. The home itself was as advertised, beautiful hard wood throughout, very well lit and warm. The hidden charm was the closeness to the ocean and the very nice neighbors that are around the house. We got eggs from farmer down the street. We had several meals at the restaurant down the street. The manager of the restaurant had a son that my son really hit it off with. I think that when we were not touring we felt really at home and on the last day when it rained we were more than content to just sit around the house and play games! Kathy was a great hostess that gave us tips and suggestions as well as giving us some lobster buoys when we asked her where we could buy some. We have never stayed at a hotel/inn or B&B where we felt more comfortable! Thanks so much.
