About Paula & Barry

Barry and Paula are a semi-retired couple who Winter in Florida where they have rental properties. Summers, for the past several years, have been spent here in Down East Maine as tour guides and they have recently added rental properties in the area. Originally from the NY Metro area, they have traveled extensively throughout the US, Alaska and the world.

Paula & Barry purchased this house in 2013

Why Paula & Barry chose Lamoine

Gull Cottage is in the perfect location for enjoying the views and activities of Frenchman's Bay, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Close enough to everything, yet quietly situated near the end of a paved dead end road.

What makes this house unique

Expansive views of Frenchman's Bay with breathtaking sunrises. Just steps from deep water access for your boat, kayak, fishing and other water activities. Boat can be anchored and kayaks launched from shore and viewed from the cottage and deck. Built in 1993, its modern living room, dining room/kitchen, four bedrooms and three baths meet the needs of extended families. One mile from Marlboro Beach, a community tidal shorefront seldom frequented by tourists. Three miles from Bloomfield Park, a community only sandy beach for swimming in Blunt's Pond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a wonderful Maine experience and hate to leave! You're recommendations were all good - Ruth & Wimpy's was great! Acadia, Bar Harbor, loon and hummingbird sightings, lobster & blueberry overload . . . ahhh! The home was fabulous - all the amenities expected and then some. I particularly love the chairs by the windows! What a wonderful setting for an extended family vacation. Thank you so much for the hospitality!

Great house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Maine for years, but never as far north as Acadia. This is a great house, with all the amenities. We loved paddling in Frenchman's Bay, lobster on the deck and found a wonderful place to swim near by in a lake. The proximity to Acadia is great. We went to the park several times to hike. There were 5 of us and we could have easily fit more people. The owners were next door. They were very helpful but never intrusive. I would definitely go back!

first time in Maine from Ohio and Illinois

We were very impressed by how this home was furnished with everything one would need for a vacation. From books, games and puzzles for rainy days to brochures containing information on every possible area attraction - and the kitchen was completely stocked with whatever you might need to cook a meal when you don't feel like eating out and just want to hit the nearby grocery. We even found a band-aid in the bathroom when we needed one! The only thing stopping me from giving this place 5 stars was a musty smell in the basement that crept up to the living areas - but we banished it with a scented candle!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found Gull Cottage well equipped. We appreciate your bringing the musty smell to our attention when you were leaving. We aired out the basement before the next guests arrived and it hasn't been a problem since. We have installed a dehumidifier to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Miss the view from the bedroom!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. We went with another family and had plenty of room and comfortable beds. Loved waking up every morning to look out and see that view. Had lobster our last evening and there was everything we needed there. The owners are very nice and gave us helpful suggestions on some things to do and places to eat! Will definitely stay here again the next time we go to Maine.
