Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

Perfectly comfortable with lovely water views. Ideal for two couples since there is a bedroom upstairs and one downstairs. Note that the stairs to the second floor are quite steep so agility is needed! Loved this place!!
Nice house in a great coastal area
The Grey house was as described, plenty of room and a great screened porch overlooking the bay and ocean. We went clamming a few days and got plenty of pisser clams also a nice haul of chowder clams out by the ocean surf line. The only issues we had was the mosquitoes out in the yard they were ferocious the owner said they were supposed to spray but that never happened. Once you were on the beach no more mosquitoes. Also would be nice to have lobster crackers and mallets couldn't understand how you can have a Maine house in prime lobster area and have no crackers or mallets. The House needs some new windows and screens and ceiling fans would be a nice touch. Overall we would come back to this area again very relaxing.
Thanks for your nice review. A couple of responses: (1) mosquitoes -- it was a wet year which caused more mosquitoes and challenges for the sprayers. they got down just after you left, sorry. (2) crackers and mallets - they are there somewhere, there have been crackers in the house for many decades. please ask when you're there and we would made sure you have them. (3) old windows - yes, they are old and that's a lot of the charm. The house isn't winterized so insulation hasn't been a need. we will replace them when they fail, but until then we love them. (4) ceiling fan - a good idea, we'll add it to the list (we regularly make updates to the house)
Perfect Maine summer vacation location
We loved our stay at this quaint and comfortable summer home. It is the perfect place to vacation in an area that has some of the most beautiful beaches that Maine has to offer and it has it's own beach that is fresh and clean and completely wonderful. The home is well equipped with everything you may need in the kitchen and the owners have thoughtfully provided games, music and books with guest comfort in mind. We can't say enough about the beautiful view of the bay from the front porch!
Couldn't be happier!
Thank you, Fred, for your hospitality and a wonderful experience! Due to circumstances beyond your control, a glitch arose and you were able to overcome the situation quickly and without hesitation to insure the best possible experience for us. We are grateful that you are able to share your family's heritage and history with us, and we sincerely look forward to our stay in the Grey House next year!
Restful serene spot
We have rented for the last two summers. We love the porch. From coffee to cocktails it is so peaceful watching the bay. We love clamming, hiking out to the big ocean, getting our "cooked"
Lobsters from the general store- just a good overall Maine vacation. Enjoyed the new stove and electrical upgrades. Hoping for a few furniture updates soon.
The Grey House is wonderfully situated for a Maine coast vacation offering swimming and boating on site as well as at neighboring beaches. Upon arrival we were delighted with the beautiful ocean views both from the interior living room bay window and the lovely screened-in porch and have been just as happy to stay put as we have been with our day trips exploring Maine's craggy peninsulas. Reid state Park with its dramatic rocks and surf is just down the road and for a vast sandy beach, Popham is the best! The house was a perfect size for our family reunion of four sisters, the kitchen well-equipped, and all our needs were well met. Thank you, Mr. Dalrymple, for sharing your house with us!
This property is on a large tidal bay with a sand beach. The ocean is visible from the house.
