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

About Valerie Brown

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

Why Valerie Brown chose Campobello Island

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.'

GULL COVE a TREASURE!

  • 5 of 5
We have never been disappointed in a rental from Home Away. Gull Cove was no exception, and surely ranks in one of our favorites, if not THE favorite in its category. Valerie and Hiram have put thought, energy, and work into providing every comfort for their guests. Everything was clean. The kitchen is well supplied with cooking equipment, utensils, and appliances. The beds are comfortable with excellent lights for reading, and likewise the greatroom and screened in porch with plenty of seating. Books and DVD's are ample and wide ranging. The owners provided excellent information: directions, arrival and departure checklists, and touring suggestions. The site is private, and the view is gorgeous with the changing light and weather. Although Gull Cove is a modern log cabin, the Island itself is a step back in time. We enjoyed exploring Campobello Island with no crowds or traffic! The music at Fog Fest was great, the Roosevelts' home and 'Tea with Eleanor' was a learning experience, East Quoddy Light was a challenge for us but well worth the effort. Fortunately the border wasn't a challenge: one to three cars each time we crossed! We recommend Gull Cove to anyone looking for a change of pace getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much to my Maryland guests for the glowing review of "Gull Cove." There is nothing more complimentary to Hiram and I than to hear that the cottage was found to be comfortable and welcoming. Clean and well equipped are also welcome words to hear. Obviously you took advantage and enjoyed the many amenities of the island as well. It truly is an enchanted and magnificent place to relax and enjoy the unhurried, non-electronic world. Thank you again for the kind words.

Even the teenagers did not complain!

  • 5 of 5
The house was lovely and the view fantastic! Everything was as Valerie described. Bringing your own groceries was great advice. We enjoyed the Roosevelt house and trails.The beach at Herring Cove was great -- the sand was soft, although the water was cold, the kids had a great time following the river from the lake, across the beach and into the bay. We had 2 days of rain, and while my husband and I sat on the porch looking at the changing view (It was amazing how it changed with the tide, weather and time of day!) the kids enjoyed the extensive movie collection, Chinese checkers and scrabble. Family Fisheries was a great place to eat, but it is bring your own wine. It was peaceful to be without cell service and internet. We had a great time, it was very relaxing and the house was clean, neat and had all the necessities. Cannot wait to plan another visit. Definitely worth the trip from New York.

Owner's Response: Thank you to the Dodd family for the very lovely review of our cottage. We strive to keep "Gull Cove" a warm, comfortable, clean and welcome cottage to ensure vacation relaxation for our guests. Additionally, it seems always true that when our guests discover Campobello Island, it's easy to allow our electronic world to remain silent during their visit. "Getting back to nature" is not just a phrase when visiting the magnificent island of Campobello. Wonderful to hear that even your teens enjoyed their vacation. It's so nice that they appreciate being with family as well as the beauty of their surroundings, and, even board games. We'll very much look forward to your visit in the future. There is no greater compliment than the return visits of our guests.
Many thanks, H & V

Beautiful log cabin in the bay.

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time in this very comfortable, beautifully decorated home. The screen porch was heaven for watching the tides and birds. On sunny days, we explored the waters around the island in our kayaks. On rainy days we visited the Roosevelt Park, shopped in Lubec or just kicked back and watched movies (great selection of DVD's - just our taste!). The kitchen had everything you needed to make great meals using the local seafood (found at Family Fisheries). The 2 bedrooms on opposite sides of the cabin each have their own private bathroom, so it would be a perfect getaway for a family with kids or two couples. We'd love to come back with our bicycles - great dirt roads on the island and in the parks. Beautiful scenery, great water. No internet, no tv, and no cell phone (for ATT) - so we could relax and unplug from our business and be there. We'd love to go back and explore this area some more. Oh - and the owners kindly allowed us to bring our dogs with us - which made our vacation complete!

Owner's Response: Hi Leslie,
We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your vacation at "Gull Cove." Reading the word "comfortable home" and that you enjoyed the screened porch is exactly what we strive for, that and the peacefulness and privacy of the location. You mentioned that you'd love to go back and explore the area more. We would certainly welcome you whenever you're ready to return. Thank you kindly for taking your time to write such a lovely review, it is very much appreciated.

We absolutely LOVED this spot!!

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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!!"

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
