Overview

New Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, sleeps 4

Leave the city behind and step into this one-of-a-kind authentic ocean-front cottage. On the inside of this cozy cottage, you’ll fall in love with the painted, wide plank floors, bookshelves, stone fireplace, and original paned windows. On the outside, the sites and sounds of the bold Maine coast, just steps away, will take your breath away. Sit on the porch in one of the Adirondack chairs and watch lobster boats pulling their traps, while sipping your morning cup of coffee. In the evening, witness gorgeous sunsets from the back lawn while enjoying a glass of wine. On a foggy day (you’re bound to have one), we suggest curling up by the fireplace with a good book or taking advantage of modern-day conveniences such as CD player, Apple TV service, high-speed internet via ethernet, and even WiFi.

The cottage has two bedrooms: The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed, dresser, and closet. The second bedroom has two twin-sized beds and a dresser. The cottage is also equipped with a livingroom sofa that can pull out into a full-sized bed. The eat-in kitchen is on the east side of the cottage, with a bathroom, complete with shower, off the kitchen.

A perfect Maine vacation

  • 5 of 5
As we drove down Pemiquid Trails to the Laughing Gull cottage we admired the beautiful homes along the ocean and the quiet of the street.
And then we came to the cottage, we could tell it was a log cabin built many years ago and situated on a perfect piece of property. The windows had window boxes with beautiful yellow and blue wildflowers.
The property was extremely well manicured, and the pine trees in the front on the ocean side couldn’t have been more picturesque. Two white picket chairs sitting there, just waiting for us to come out with a good glass of wine and watch the Sun set.
Once we entered the cabins, we immediately left all the stress at the door; we felt like we were home. The cabin was beautiful, well-appointed and so peaceful. Every amenity was thought of and we needed to bring nothing but our clothes, books and food. The cabin was immaculately clean and smelled fresh.
The kitchen had every cooking utensil you would need, even Lobster plates and a lobster pot! Plenty of dishes, silverware even a poaching pan for eggs. We found additional treats, such as, the bathroom had a heater, the bed had a mattress warmer and propane heater that could heat the whole house.
The small barn out back had more than enough fire wood to satisfy the beautiful ocean stone fireplace, it was huge and burned beautiful fires – what a treat.
Plenty of activities to do within a close ride, lot of trials, and sites to see, good restaurants. Additionally two well-maintained bikes were in the barn for our use. The Host was also in residence and came over to introduce himself and ask if we needed anything to give him a call. It is a good feeling to have the owner close by – just in case.
We are so pleased with finding the Laughing Gull that we have booked two weeks next year.

Maine, the way life should be!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have vacationed in ME for the last 15+ years and enjoyed every stay. Laughing gull was something extra-special. Rustic cottage, well furnished and clean. The view was to die for and it had great technology, high speed wifi, cable, apple TV, etc. In a quiet, friendly neighborhood that seemed to encourance walks, jogs and just relaxing, yet with great restaurants, shopping and activities close by. We stayed two weeks and did not want to return to the real world. We agreed this was the best vacation we have had in 25 years. Tom and Laurie were awsome hosts and we will be back here again!

Another great stay at the Gull

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at the Laughing Gull and we're already booked for a third next year. This was our 26th year in Maine and the Gull cottage has by far the best accommodations, let alone a view to die for. Thomas and Laurie are wonderful hosts and both years we have stayed, they were right across the street to attend to our needs. The area has everything one needs to experience Maine. Reilly's food store up the street, the Pemaquid Lighthouse down the road, Shaw"s, Cupboard Cafe, Contented Sole, and Anchor Inn close by, Pemaquid Beach at the end of Pemaquid Trail, the pre-revolution fort and 17th century excavations and cemetery less than five minutes away. It is just a perfect location and very private. Took our 6 year old grand-daughter this year and she cannot stop talking about all the wonderful things she experienced...even the Farnsworth in Rockland. She certainly was not bored having spent a full day in Boothbay Harbor at the Botanical Gardens and Aquarium and the rest of the week in a myriad of activities which were very "kid friendly". The Laughing Gull is the quintessential Maine coastal cottage.

Beautiful Maine

  • 5 of 5
Our experience continued the tradition of true Maine. This place that is part of our families history is still the place we slow and listen to the earth and sea. Quiet, cozy, perfectly placed by the sea. The cottage is a place to return to another time, to step away from the whirl of the world. The best part of the year.

A Perfect Piece Of Maine

  • 5 of 5
I wish we could have stayed at the Laughing Gull for a month. This authentic gem of a Maine coast cottage was all we had hoped for, and more. While the pictures on the website are spectacular, in person the views are truly breathtaking.

The location on a quiet private road couldn't be better. While within a short drive or bike ride of historic Pemaquid Lighthouse, the village of New Harbor, and picturesque Pemaquid Beach, the cottage is as private as anyone could want. The only sounds we heard all week were the cries of sea gulls, the lapping of the waves on the rocks below, and the occasional calls of the loons.

The cottage itself is cozy and inviting, and very well maintained. The owners have gone to great lengths to preserve one of the few remaining original Pemaquid summer cottages, and they have succeeded wonderfully. The best part of the Laughing Gull though is the magnificent setting. Whether you're watching the fog lift off Johns Bay with morning coffee on the back porch, or being mesmerized in the Adirondack chairs at water's edge by another gorgeous sunset, the scenery is always tranquil and enchanting. And there's always the chance that each new tide will leave a few pieces of frosted sea glass nestled in the rocks and pebbles.

My wife and I have never had a vacation as thoroughly enjoyable as this before, and the fact that we were able to bring along our little dog just made it that much better. We highly recommend the Laughing Gull Cottage to anyone who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing true Maine coast experience. Thank you Thomas and Laurie, we're definitely coming back next year.
