UNBELIEVABLE VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
Gull Cottage is truly spectacular for anyone looking to experience a coastal Maine vacation! The cottage is perfect (all as described and presented by the owner, very clean, tidy/ well-equipped, etc. and the owner is very easy to work with), but nothing prepares you for the unbelievable long-coastal views that the house offers (including seals!). Words cannot adequately describe how breathe-taking the view is from the family room/dining area/kitchen, etc. Very easy to relax with these surroundings. In the guestbook, one guest had written "the way life should be." I think that sums it up here at Gull Cottage and on Westport Island. Once you leave the cottage, easy drives to Wiscasset, Bath, Boothbay, Camden, Popham Beach, and Reid State Park, and lots more for beach time, boating, sightseeing, cute towns, etc. If you like seafood, you're in for a real treat! We will be returning.

AN AMAZING "ENCHANTED COTTAGE"

An amazing "Enchanted Cottage"
  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent the last week of August in Westport Island, Maine at Gull Cottage. It was everything it said it was and more. Plenty of parking, bi-level steps to go down to the cottage and everything you needed was stocked up for you. The view was unbelievable. Two sides of the cottage had decks to sit and enjoy the beautiful water and below was a private deck to enjoy the peacefulness of God's miracles. The sunrises, lobster boats and seals were remarkable! Inside was just gorgeous! The decor was simply seashells all over the place. Twenty minutes and you were off the island and heading to Route 1, so you could enjoy the delicious pastries from Judi's. Further down, you come to Wiscasset to enjoy more delicious food like lobster rolls from Sprague's and Red's Eats. Now to Boothbay Harbor for shopping and then returning to enjoy the evening sunset from the cottage deck.

But the most important part of my journey was our host, Meg. What a special person. She was right next door in case we needed anything and was very helpful, yet we still had our privacy. We saw some of her family, which was a joy. Hopefully, we will be able to make a return visit to such wonderful people. I would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends!!

Thank you Meg for coming into out lives.

EXCEEDED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Our Maine vacation objective was to rent a pet friendly cottage half way between Camden and Portland and take day trips. We chose Meg's cottage because of its location and the pictures and reviews on VRBO. The cottage met our every expectation. The view off the deck was terrific and even better than the pictures on the site. The small dock with rocking chairs set right over the water. It was fully stocked with everything we needed and had nice areas for our dogs. We looked forward to getting back to the cottage every afternoon and cooking the lobsters we got at the co-op on the island. Meg was terrific to work with, sent great directions and helped with day trip ideas.

MORE THAN EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
We had the opportunity to spend two very relaxing weeks at Gull Cottage. Meg has done an excellent job in stocking the house with anything and everything you could possible need. We loved sitting on the deck watching lobster boats, seals and ducks. Coming from Houston, TX we enjoyed the cool temperatures. We took day trips to whale watch, Cabbage Island (Downeast Maine clambake - highly recommend), Acadia which is a long drive but well worth it, and all the beautiful light houses in the area.

Meg is so thoughtful and friendly and even treated us to a sunset cruise. Maine is so beautiful and made more so by the warmth of the people.

This vacation was one of the best I have ever taken and coming home each evening to Gull Cottage was wonderful.

GREAT, QUAINT, COZY RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin? What a wonderful place, just as described. We really felt like we were at home, everything was comfortable and we had just what we needed. The view is fantastic. Did I mention the seals?!?!? Yes the seals, they live on the little island directly across from the cottage - they were there everyday and at night sometimes we could hear them softly barking - it was AMAZING!

Meg is such a gracious host - she gives you tons of information - where to shop, where to get the freshest lobster, local sightseeing events.

We look forward to returning to this cozy hide-a-way!

JUST THE VACATION WE WERE LOOKING FOR

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I love Midcoast Maine and have rented a number of cottages on different islands and tidal rivers...Gull Cottage is our new favorite! We had a short list of needs for our cottage rental this year; it needed to be on the water, pet-friendly and easily accessible and comfortable for my parents. Gull Cottage ticked all of the must-have boxes and so much more.
Here's what we loved:
-the view...just stunning from inside the cottage and out!
-the sound of silence and lobster boats and sweet little birds and seals from Upper Mark island just a few hundred feet away
-this cottage is clean (sigh), private, comfortable and well-appointed. The beds and furniture were much nicer than you'd expect and most of the extra stuff I always bring to camp was already there (heater, fans, puzzles, games, cutting boards, etc)
-we loved the artwork and found it especially cool that most of the paintings were done by Meg's mom
-the beach was close and a short walk for us and the doggies every day
-Meg, the owner, is next door, helpful (if you need help) and friendly
-you can essentially have a master suite. By closing the door, you separate the downstairs bathroom, bedroom and a connecting hallway. This was much appreciated by my parents and, I imagine, anyone who might want a bit more privacy.
-delicious dinners at the nearby Squire Tarbox Inn, long walks at Clough Point preserve with the dogs, kayak rental from Wiscasset Trading Post (they know the cottage and delivered/picked it up), shopping in nearby Wiscasset and Damariscotta, dinner at Solo Bistro in Bath.
Thanks, Meg, for making this lovely spot available to us.
