Just the vacation we were looking for

My husband and I love Midcoast Maine and have rented a number of cottages on different islands and tidal rivers...Gull Cottage is our new favorite! We had a short list of needs for our cottage rental this year; it needed to be on the water, pet-friendly and easily accessible and comfortable for my parents. Gull Cottage ticked all of the must-have boxes and so much more.
Here's what we loved:
-the view...just stunning from inside the cottage and out!
-the sound of silence and lobster boats and sweet little birds and seals from Upper Mark island just a few hundred feet away
-this cottage is clean (sigh), private, comfortable and well-appointed. The beds and furniture were much nicer than you'd expect and most of the extra stuff I always bring to camp was already there (heater, fans, puzzles, games, cutting boards, etc)
-we loved the artwork and found it especially cool that most of the paintings were done by Meg's mom
-the beach was close and a short walk for us and the doggies every day
-Meg, the owner, is next door, helpful (if you need help) and friendly
-you can essentially have a master suite. By closing the door, you separate the downstairs bathroom, bedroom and a connecting hallway. This was much appreciated by my parents and, I imagine, anyone who might want a bit more privacy.
-delicious dinners at the nearby Squire Tarbox Inn, long walks at Clough Point preserve with the dogs, kayak rental from Wiscasset Trading Post (they know the cottage and delivered/picked it up), shopping in nearby Wiscasset and Damariscotta, dinner at Solo Bistro in Bath.
Thanks, Meg, for making this lovely spot available to us.
