Fall weekend mini vacation
Our group of 11, including three small children, visited for a long weekend in October. The house worked very well for us; plenty of space. We loved the big front porch with plenty of seating and a swing. The adults were able to relax on the porch while the kids played in the fenced yard. We didn't need to get in our cars the entire weekend, just hung out at the beach and the house.
Great beach house!
We, six adults and two teenagers, spent a lovely week in the Pilot House. The house was fully equipped, nicely furnished and very clean. The location, just off of the beach on the Kennebec River was wonderful. A short walk to a private path led to the beach. I, as a fisherman, and the other guests, loved the ease of access to the beach for sunbathing, walks, drift wood art, dog walking and the beautiful views of West Point, Wood and Pond Islands and the mouth of the river. The kitchen was superbly equipped with everything necessary from gourmet meals to breakfast. The house is informal but very comfortable. The fenced in yard was nicely maintained as were the flower and herb gardens. Our dogs loved the yard and we were happy they were in a secure fenced area. Our week was very hot, especially for Maine, but there were fans in every bedroom and a whole house fan as well. We loved the wrap around porch, the library, the screened in back porch and the game room. The owner couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I have rented properties here, in the Caribbean, and in Europe, and can say without hesitation that the Pilot House is one of my all time favorites.
This house is perfect for family reunions or large groups. It has an authentic New England charm with all the modern conviences such as new dishwasher, cooktop stove and two refridgerators. It is a few steps away from the water and was very convient to the little picturesque town of Popham. We loved walking to the 'local' convience store to get an ice cream or a fresh lobster! The pictures do not do this property justice as its coziness and charm are New England at its best. The owner has decorated it to be both cute and comfortable with each bedroom having a distinct charm, I especially liked the nautical themed bedroom upstairs for the kids complete with teddy bears. It was especially nice not to have to bring our own sheets and towels as the owner supplied an abudance of both. She also has lots of beach chairs and toys. We intend to rent this again, it's a real winner!
This is an incredible vacation spot. Home was beautifully decorated, yet warm and welcoming for our group. The kitchen was fully equipped, beds were very comfortable, and the house had everything we needed - including 2 refrigerators and even a mini herb garden! The beach is just a 'stone's throw' away, and there was lots to do - boat rides, outlet shopping day, lobster boils, and long walks on the beach. Local grocer and eateries within walking distance too. We even attended church at the chapel on Sunday. Can't wait to come back - a wonderful escape!!
A Dreamy Getaway!
We stayed at the Pilot House for my birthday with a group of friends. I had never been to Maine and had high expectations on what I had heard from people who had visited. Well, I was not let down! The Pilot house is amazing! When you drive up, it looks like something out of a storybook! It is beautiful and cozy all at the same time! The beds are so comfy and the view from our upstairs bedroom was so pretty. We enjoyed our short walks to the beach and down to Percy's for ice cream and crab quesadillas. We went out on a boat and toured the waterway...seeing seals, osprey and light houses! What a quintessential view of Maine! The highlight of our trip was Sunday morning sitting out on the front porch with our coffee and hearing the church bells ring for the service. We all walked the short distance to the quaint Popham Chapel. We were greated with smiles from the locals and a guest appearance by a pianist that had studied at Juilliard. Afterwards we went to the church hall for coffee and home cooked treats.
Wow, what an amazing trip! We will be talking about the memories we took from the Pilot House for many years to come!!
Piece of Paradise
This is our 3rd year of staying at the Pilot House and every year gets better. The house is perfect for a couple of families and extra kid's. The house has a great floor plan with plenty of space for everyone. It is beautiful, warm and welcoming and has everything you need for a perfect vacation.
The beach is beautiful with wonderful views. And Percey's right around the corner is fun for lunch or just ice cream after a lobster dinner. It is truly a place to get away and relax. It is a place we look forward to going each summer, we love it!
