THE LAUGHING GULL COTTAGE - AN AUTHENTIC MAINE OCEANFRONT

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 DIRECT TV Service, Apple TV, DVD player, high-speed internet, and even WiFi. THE GUEST HOUSE, which is located directly across the street from the Laughing Gull Cottage, is available as a separate rental. It features spectacular ocean views, two bedrooms, upscale decor, a screened-in porch, washer/dryer, dishwasher, a fully equipped kitchen, towels, and linens. The Guest House has a minimum rental period of two (2) weeks. Rents are published below under 'Rates'. Please inquire for photos and further details.

My husband, son, and I stayed here for five days in late October. The location is superb - everything you could imagine Maine would be. The view from the living area was beautiful and we enjoyed drinking our coffee on the porch every morning. If it wasn't for the location I would have given the place 2-3 stars. The cottage is small and very old, which wasn't that big of a deal for us. The big downside was the lack of privacy and how noisy the cottage was. The rooms have no doors, just curtains, Every step or movement you make can be heard throughout and the entire house, and it's very creaky. The rooms are microscopic and you need to store your luggage in the shed outside. We did enjoy our lobster dinner; the cottage had special plates, bowls, crackers, forks, and every other tool imaginable. I would definitely recommend staying here in the summer when you can enjoy being outside and enjoying the view as much as possible.

Honeymoon Perfection

Representations of the cottage are entirely accurate. No disappointments, only further surprises. It was a perfect mix of beautiful days and roaring-fire-filled nights with a much-hoped-for rainy day with fog, mist and crashing waves. Made dinner every night in a wonderfully equipped kitchen. Both sunrise and sunset are amazing. There's tons of beautiful Maine within an hour of the house (see Boothbay Harbor, Camden). If you're driving from points South, don't miss Stonewall Kitchen in York either inbound or outbound. Architecture and coast line of Maine, sublime. The heating system (even without fire) was totally up to the task.

Laughing Gull is a Rite of Passage

I have been coming to the Pemaquid Trail my entire life to reunite with friends and family from coast to coast. The Laughing Gull Cottage has been a rite of passage for all -- from those who've known Pemaquid for decades to those who just fell in love last summer. If you're looking for a true "cottage on the coast of Maine", then this is it. Over the decades that my family has been coming to the trail, the Laughing Gull has been a vacation home to so many friends and family and a place that my husband and I look forward to returning to for years to come.

Beautiful setting on Maine coast

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 18, 2013

My husband and I and our small dog stayed here for a week in September 2013.
The cottage was clean and reasonably well equipped and the lounge was very cozy particularly when you lit a fire in the evening (when needed). The views from the lounge were superb and really nice to watch the sunset in the evening.
However, the bedrooms are small and we do not feel this cottage could take any more than 4 persons so as not to be cramped.
The area is pretty and we had plenty of places to visit and know the area as we have visited Maine on previous occasions.
The best day was the day we took the boat to Monhegan Island with Hardy's boat cruises. What a beautiful spot to visit - the island is famous for artists and poets etc and you can see why. Lovely place for a hike around the island trails and then refreshments in the village.

Relaxing

The weather during our stay was excellent. The rental unit was everything we had envisioned...and more! An excellent location for travel south or north and for just sitting, reading and enjoying the view from the two chairs as seen in the VRBO ad. The beach is just a short walk away and the food at nearby locations was excellent. The local grocery store was much better than we expected. Trip to Monhegan Island was great. Trips to Portland, Bath (Museum), Freeport, Camden, Rockland and Boothbay were great day trips. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to couples looking for a relaxing, yet adventurous trip!
