SECLUDED LOG STYLE CABIN SITUATED ON THE EDGE OF A BEAUTIFUL TIDAL COVE

Campobello Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Well Equipped, Seaside Hideaway

Located in the Welshpool section of Campobello, overlooking 'Harbour Delutre,' stands our cabin, which we have named 'Gull Cove' because of the abundant amount of seagulls who visit each day, along with all of the water fowl. Our cabin has two bedrooms, each with their own full bath. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other twin beds and a fold out couch. Both bedrooms have doors leading outside and both overlook the cove. The cabin is bright and sunny with a beautiful view from every room in the house, as well as the screened porch. The porch is equipped with a table and chairs for outdoor dining, as well as rocking chairs to relax any time of the day. The cabin will accommodate 4 to five people. The living room is very cozy and has double doors that open to the porch. The property has a 30-40ft drop to the water therefore not suitable for young children unless accompanied by an adult at all times. Small well behaved pet welcome. By choice, there is no TV or Internet. There is a computer for card games, etc. When there, our choice is to leave the worries of the world behind us, enjoy the beauty around us, and catch up on reading. There is accommodation for DVD's, with large library of movies. Also a variety of CD's, books, magazines, and board games. The kitchen is fully equipped including electric range, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer. There is also a charcoal BBQ, which is stored on the porch and must be moved outside for cooking. The cabin is in a private setting well off the street and surrounded by trees as well as the lovely views as mentioned. The cabin does have radiant heat if needed. Cell phone reception is poor to non-existent. We do have a land phone for emergency use only as we have a large family back in the states. Calls from the land phone to anywhere on the island and to Lubec are no charge, however, calling anywhere outside of that area is extremely expensive. Therefore we would require a $50.00 phone use fee, which will be returned in full if phone is not used outside of the Campobello/Lubec area. If the phone is used outside of that area, we will rebate accordingly. There is positively no smoking in cabin or anywhere on property. We've grown weary of the constant clean up of cigarette butts.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

We are Hiram and Valerie Brown. We reside in Rockport, Maine except when we are in the land of enchantment at our cabin. Hiram has been a life-long resident of Rockport and I, having been born and raised in Long Branch, NJ, moved to Maine in 1974 continuing my work in the medical field as manager of the chemotherapy unit at our local hospital for 25 years. Hiram continues as a master electrician. Our grown children and grandchildren reside in Maine, NH, NY. During the years since we built our cabin, we've spent many happy hours enjoying all that it has to offer, as well as the spectacular beauty of the island and its residents. We continue to go to the island often, even through the winter. We enjoy the American Thanksgiving holiday there each year with friends from home and friends from the island. We have no doubt that you will enjoy your vacation in our cabin. We're so happy to share it with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Valerie Brown purchased this cabin in 2001

Prior to purchasing the land on Campobello, we visited the island at least once a year for several years. In 2001, while staying on the island, one day we just rode around and pulled into this driveway. It opened to the beautiful view of Harbour DeLoutre and we were sold! We found that it was for sale and purchased it. The following year we built the cabin.

We fell in love with the property and then our cabin. The views, the tides, the wild life all spectacular. We have done a great deal of traveling in the states and Europe, but have never found any place that took our breath away like Campobello and 'Gull Cove.'

We absolutely LOVED this spot!!

This home is spotless and comfortable. We relaxed immediately upon arrival. The silence and the views were exactly what we had hoped for this time. Our son-in-law appreciated the time off-line, as did we all!! Lots of quiet, relaxation, and special time together, enjoying this beautiful part of the world, and playing games. Can't wait for a repeat stay!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the very much appreciated, very special, accolades you have written about our cabin, "Gull Cove." Although we do make every effort to offer our guests the peace and comfort that we advertise, it's, of course, so nice to hear from our guests that their vacation expectations were lived up to on every level. When we hear or read the word "comfortable," and "beautiful views" we know that our guests are enjoying the cabin as we do. We will very much look forward to your return visit to "Gull Cove" on the spectacular island of Campobello.

Fantastic Retreat!

Coffee at dawn, brunch late morning, drinks at sunset, dinner watching the moon come up over Bunker Hill and star gazing at midnight...all done on the porch of this magical cabin in the woods!

This is truly one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever experienced. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for that solitary retreat to catch up on the books that are piled knee deep next to the bed; watch the movies everyone has been raving about; write the novel of the century; or maybe try their hand at sketching.

I would also recommend it to those who are looking to experience quality time with the best of friends or significant other, surrounded by peace and tranquility.

I have stayed at the cabin numerous times and have been known to arrive and not leave the property until it is time to pack the car and head for home. The porch fulfills my every need...the view is spectacular and from dawn to dusk the sights and sounds keep me highly entertained!

The accommodations are certainly more than adequate. The owners and their representatives have always been available to answer my questions or attend to any problem I may have had.

When asked what I did on my vacation, it is amusing to be able to tell people, "I watched the tide come in and the tide go out!!"
Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your much appreciated review of your vacations while a guest at our property. We're always so happy to receive favorable reviews as we strive to ensure that our guests enjoy our cabin, are comfortable, and that they appreciate and enjoy the peace, beauty and tranquility of the island. We would welcome you back at any time. Thank you again.

Perfect in Every Way!

If you're looking for the perfect vacation get-away, look no more. Peace, quiet and heavenly views at the water's edge... what more could you ask for? This "cabin" was just right in every way. It may look like a cabin from the outside and have that screened in porch with rocking chairs that we all dream of, but the inside is spiffy clean with all of the comforts of a very nice home right down to the super comfy chairs, 2 fully equipped baths and even a dishwasher.

Campebello itself is a gorgeous island with great beaches and, of course, the Roosevelt summer home as an attraction.

Our visit was brief, but we'd go back in an instant for a much longer stay.

What a wonderful "cabin" in the woods, I especially loved the heated floors, so nice on a brisk morning. I would highly recommend this for a get away or a first or second honeymoon! The seagulls, lobsterboats and the smell of the salt air can't be beat. No wonder President Franklin D. Roosevelt had a summer home there. If you ever get a chance "go" you won't be sorry.

Most Relaxing Vacation ... EVER!

My husband and I enjoyed our most relaxing and refreshing vacation at this beautiful cabin in the woods. We had each brought several books with us but hardly did any reading at all because the view of the cove was so mesmerizing. One afternoon, we even got to watch a pair of eagle hunt and dine (!!). We watched seals play and sunbathe and enjoyed long evenings watching the moon come up over the cove.
One day we took a tour of the Lighthouse and climbed around the rocks - which we highly recommend. We even had a lovely lunch at the Golf Course Clubhouse.
With the full kitchen it was easy to prepare meals - including fresh fish! The house was spotless and very comfortable. We can't wait to do it again this summer!
Owner's Response: Dear Ellen K.
Thank you so much for your very complimentary review of Gull Cove and your enjoyment of the beautiful island of Campobello. It is very much appreciated. We would welcome you and your husband back at any time.

Sincerely,
Valerie Brown

This log cabin style cottage is located on the unique and spectacular island of Campobello with glorious sunrises and sunsets. Witness foggy days or nights and go to sleep with the lull of fog horns around and near the island. Observe seals, a large variety of ducks, great blue herons, eagles, as well as many other varieties of birds from your rocking chair on the long screened porch. You can also enjoy meals and/or beverages on the screened porch which has an outdoor dining set. On your computer, type in Bay of Fundy to learn about the highest tides in the world and then come to Campobello and see for yourself. Tide rises and falls 8-10ft per hour. It's truly amazing to watch. Attractions include the former summer home of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, now a museum and within the 2800 acre Roosevelt Campobello International Park, which is supported by both USA and Canada, the only one of its kind in the world. There are numerous hiking trails within the park with breathtaking views of the ocean and with benches and picnic facilities throughout. Enjoy warm, friendly, very helpful locals, visit beautiful mile long Herring Cove, which has a sand and pebble beach for swimming or beach combing, play at the 9 hole provincial golf course located high above the sea with lovely views, also kayaking, canoeing, bicycling, hiking, fishing bird watching, whale watching tours on Passamaquoddy Bay, gift shops, Head Harbor Lighthouse, where at low tide you can walk on the bottom of the sea. There are also trails and picnic tables at the lighthouse location. You will be asked for a $5.00 preservation donation and $10.00 to tour the lighthouse. Stop in and enjoy a delicious meal at Family Fisheries, pick up a picnic lunch or ice cream from their take out. You can ferry across the bay to Eastport, Maine and visit charming shops and restaurants, or drive over the FDR bridge to Lubec, Maine, also with many interesting shops and restaurants and a candy shop located just out of the center with mouthwatering chocolates and beautiful handmade clothing and jewelry as well as other interesting items. In Lubec you will also find West Quoddy Head light, the eastern most point of land in the USA, also with hiking paths and picnic tables. There are no gas stations located on Campobello, however, there is one in Lubec. There is also a medical facility located in Lubec. Most of all, and our personal favorite, is the peace and tranquility of Campobello Island, as well as the spectacular beauty, and the helpful, warm, and wonderful people.
