Phippsburg house description

Couples or families are welcome at this beautifully renovated, immaculate cottage at the mouth of the New Meadows River, an hour north of Portland and just steps away from the high tide mark. 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. Down a short right of way, kayaks, which can be rented nearby and delivered, can be launched from a small pebble beach where Adirondack chairs and a cedar picnic table 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.

A kitchen, dining/living room, sun porch, bedroom with twin beds, and bathroom complete the downstairs. Upstairs are two more bedrooms, each with a full-size bed.

PLEASE check my calendar. It's ALWAYS up to date.


Local area: Bath, with its many antique stores and the Chocoate Church Arts Center, is only a fifteen-minute drive. Easy day trips can be made to charming Camden or Boothbay Harbor, L. L. Bean and numerous outlets in Freeport, and the historic Old Port in Portland. Cultural attractions in the area include the Portland Museum of Art in downtown Portland, the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, and the Farnsworth Museum up the coast in Rockland. At nearby Bowdoin College, Maine State Music Theater offers professional summer theater at its best. The local area has much to offer, and whether you prefer to stay active or relax in the sun at the beach, you'll enjoy your stay in these bright, breezy surroundings.

                          Car: Necessary

                          Just a mile away are an oceanside 18-hole golf course, waterfront spa, kayak rentals, sailing trips, fishing, bistro dining at the Pilot House, and casual outdoor dining at the Ledge's Pub - all open to the public and located at Sebasco Harbor Resort. A brief walk will take you to Anna's Water's Edge Restaurant, and only two miles away is Totman Cove Preserve, a beautiful, undeveloped beach for residents and their guests. A short drive will take you to hiking on Morse Mountain, swimming at Popham Beach State Park, exploring at Fort Popham, and lunch or dinner at Spinney's. A state park pass in included with your stay.

                          This is the perfect cottage if you plan to attend a wedding on the Phippsburg peninsula. It's close to Sebasco Harbor Resort as well as other popular wedding locations such as Small Point or the Popham Chapel, yet is reasonably priced so that you can afford to stay for the entire week. If you're traveling all the way to Maine, why not make a vacation out of it?

                          Other Activities: Popham Beach State Park, sea kayaking, waterfront spa

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1910

                          About the owner: I'm a middle school teacher and live in Phippsburg, just a few miles from my cottage. It gives me so much pleasure to be able to provide a bright, cheerful, clean cottage for guests to relax, reconnect with family, and enjoy all that midcoast Maine has to offer.

                          Why the Owner Chose Phippsburg:
                          The cottage was built in the early 1900s and has been in the family for many years. In 2005, I took the plunge and spent six months doing a complete renovation. It was a busy time, as anyone who's ever built or remodeled a home knows, but it was also loads of fun and very rewarding to see the end product. When they were kids, my children spent all summer down by the shore, swimming at the little beach in the picture, climbing over the rocks, and spending endless hours checking out the changes since the last tide - just what kids are supposed to do on vacation.
