About Tip Kimball
After growing up in the lakes region of western Maine, I moved to the Falmouth area in 1985 and rented this cottage year round. As an avid sailor, skier and fisherman, and working in the marine industry, I jumped at the chance to purchase the property in 1988 and made it my home. A major, remodeling project was completed in 2006, both interior and exterior, where all inspiration was taken from a beautiful old cottage I discovered in Ocean Point near Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
Tip Kimball purchased this Cottage in 1988
Why Tip Kimball chose Falmouth Foreside
The location is ideal with a small beach a short walk down the street which offers great fishing, swimming, and access to deep water anchorage, all while being within 10 minutes of downtown Portland.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is south facing, loaded with windows, very bright and sunny and has a limited view of the water, islands, boats and beautiful sunrises. Karen does a beautiful job keeping the house clean and neat as a pin and is constantly upgrading and maintaining linens, towels, kitchen amenities, etc. We both try our best to ensure that each guest enjoys the house as much as we do!

This is a great “cozy” cottage by the sea. The house is very spacious and well appointed. The property was spotless and had everything you would need for a long restful stay. The owner description is exactly what you get. We will be back.
We had a wondeful week! The cottage was very nice , super clean and nicely decorated. It was quiet and close to the beach. The kitchen was well equiped and it made it easy to cook for our family. The owners were very kind and made sure we had everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
We hope to come back very soon.

The ultimate Maine experience
This darling cottage is a real charmer: super-clean & well-maintained. Cooking was a breeze in the well-stocked kitchen. Experience Portland yet return for the ultimate rest & relaxation in this ocean view home. Our host was focused on our comfort which enhanced the entire experience. The neighborhood is ideally located, close to the beach with many places to walk. We loved it.
Falmouth seaside cottage review
My family and I stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The owner was a good communicator - called and asked us if we needed anything. The property was very well maintained, clean with nice linens. I would recommend this cottage and would stay here again.
August at the Falmouth Cottage
We arrived at the Falmouth cottage on August 1 and planned on staying for the month. Coming from this area, we knew the general location, which worked well for our needs. The property was clean and well equipped. The owner was a delight to deal with and went out of his way to make us comfortable.
However, there is no central air, and it does get extremely hot in Portland. Several days it exceeded 90 degrees. The upstairs bedroom was unuseable on those nights, leaving only a twin bed or sofa to sleep on. The cottage is very close to the surrounding homes and the street, so it can get extremely noisy. Kids, dogs, cars & trucks and noise from construction was an every day issue. The water is just a short walk down the street, and a nice place to take a walk to, but only during low tide.
I reccomend the cottage for the active family, but for a couple looking for a quite get-a-way, you may want to keep looking.............
