Overview

About the property

The "Sandbox" is a lovely 3 bedroom cottage only 187 steps away from beautiful Popham Beach which offers tidal pools, islands, lighthouses, over three miles of sandy beach, and two old stone forts for you to explore.

The cottage comfortably accommodates six guests with sleeping arrangements consisting of two traditional bedrooms (a queen bed in one and two twins in the other) and a full sized bed located in our stunning wrap around sunroom.

The "Sandbox" is nestled in the historic quaint community of Popham Village. You will enjoy strolling, fishing, swimming, hiking and collecting sea shells along the beach. If hungry you can walk only 5 minutes down to Spinney's resturant to enjoy an oceanside breakfast, lunch, dinner OR ice cream.

The cottage has internet, games, puzzles, a propane grill, a DVD library and a gas fireplace for those foggy coastal nights when you just want to stay in and relax. The large sunroom is designed to be both a community room where friends and family can relax listening to the sound of the ocean surf that surrounds the cottage in addition to being an incredible bedroom.

About Lynn Jacobs

I am a Maniac. Born in Portland, and summered in Bar Harbor where both my Parents were born. (OK, I went to school and in Connecticut and currently live in Vermont) But, Maine is where I call home. I love the smell of the salt air, the endless adventures to the small seaside villages and the abundance of festivals, craft fairs and outdoor activities.

Why Lynn Jacobs chose Phippsburg

Popham Beach is such a magical place on the Midcoast of Maine. The beach has soft clean sand with PLENTY of room to spread out your blanket and have a quiet day at the beach. The history of Popham is fascinating from colonial settlements to ship building. And, the proximity to Freeport, Portland, Boothbay makes day tripping a breeze!

What makes this cottage unique

This property is tucked away in a Pine grove just steps from the beach. It is wonderful to have the amenity of strolling, swimming and fishing however, getting away at the end of the day and sitting on the screen porch listening to surf at a private cottage is the best of both worlds.

Fantastic Popham Beach location

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great coastal cottage and it truly is 187 steps from the beach. The cottage was well maintained, clean and fully stocked with anything one could need. The porch was my favorite spot. Centrally located between Percy's (Breakfast sandwiches!!) and the end of the river made for a great start of every day.

Fabulous location, very well appointed Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage. The location could not have been better. The large screened-in porch was a fantastic place to relax and read. We had wonderful long walks on beautiful Popham beach daily. What a perfect place to get away from it all.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had beautiful weather, enjoyed the beach - walking, fishing, sand dollar hunting and just relaxing. It was lovely meeting Lynn and Ben. Enjoyed your renovations! The cottage was well appointed. My only negative is the sun waking me up on the sleeping porch too early. Perhaps blinds could be added. Hope to see you next year. -Valerie and Mark 🌞�🌊�🎣�

We had an amazing time! Lynn and Ben were very accomidating and the weather was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean,light, and airy. Lynn and Ben had everything you could need for your vacation experience. It was all labeled in their guest book which made life so much more enjoyable. It was only 187 steps to the beach but yet we felt like we had the privacy we wanted. We would definitely recommend this cottage at Popham beach for your next getaway.
