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.

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.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND WELL EQUIPPED!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I couldn't stop smiling as we pulled up to the laughing gull cottage. It truly was like a dream. All the comforts of big city living (internet, satellite TV, Apple TV) but with all the beauty of god's country. All supplies and provisions not already provided can be purchased at the town's grocery store 2 miles away. We could spend the rest of our lives here!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
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.
