About Kathleen Gullo
I grew up in this area and have always appreciated the beauty and laid back way of life. My husband is from Pittsburgh, but now claims to be a "Mainer" too! We traveled quite extensively due to his career but always new that we would want to live here year round! We live in the village of Newcastle 10 miles up the peninsula. This property and a little cottage next door came on the market and we thought it would be great to purchase them and use them for family and friends that frequently come extended visits in the summer! They both were in desperate need of TLC! Bob and I figured we could get the small place fixed up and take our time with this one. Life has a way of getting in the way of the best laid plans, so needless to say we just finished this fall! As it turns out, our children are all pretty busy with their lives so the cottages weren't being used liked we had hoped, so, we decided to rent them out when family's not using them! Last summer was the third season of renting the small cottage, but first year on VRBO and this property is new to VRBO this fall! I hope that people will give it a go! I know people like to have reviews, as do I when I travel. Unfortunately, this being it's first season, we have none yet! Come and check us out, I know you'll enjoy the comfort and the beauty of the area!

Why Kathleen Gullo chose New Harbor
The Pemaquid Peninsula is my favorite little piece of Maine! I grew up on the west side of the Damariscotta River and I love it there too, but this area holds a special place in my heart! It's laid back with no pretense or commercialism! There's plenty to do and if you want action it's not far away, but I could stay down here all summer and be perfectly at peace!
What makes this House unique
I have a dear friend who's a realtor and took me one day with her to put signs up on her listings. When we arrived at this property and went inside I fell in love with the staircase! It's nothing like Tara, just a simple oak staircase with a landing, but it reminded me of my grandmothers house when I was a child! I called my husband and told him to come down and see what I found! I didn't tell him that it had been vacant for four years and that there was a bunch of damage and it had no heat and it needed total cosmetic reconditioning!! Mostly I love the feel of the place! It's very relaxed and has a huge back yard. It's very private even though there are neighbors and best of all,,,,,,,,It's a 1/2 mile to my favorite beach in the world, (and I've been to some amazing beaches all over the world)!

A lot of space in this house and the owner was very responsive. Overall great experience.
Great for kids, a few minutes from great food, a great beach, and lovely walking/hiking paths.
Great location and great house
My family and I really enjoyed the house - a quiet location with a nice, big yard. Having toys on hand (especially beach toys) was really nice for our kids. Kathleen was really great about prompt responses to my inquiries. And the location was terrific! Thanks for a wonderful week!
I love this house!
This is the second time we've stayed here. I love this house. - so comfortable and homey. Location is great and easy access to a variety of local activities. Owner is super accommodating. Great place! Would definitely go back again.
Beautiful place for 2 families
Very clean, small beach not to far
Everything we were looking for
My fiancé and I were looking for a location near our wedding at the 1812 Farm that could accommodate us as well as our bridal party for the weekend. This property was perfect for the large group and the location offers a ton of entertainment. We were able to quickly get to the beach and out to the lighthouse to take care in the views and get ice cream. Kathleen was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. We highly recommend staying at this lovey home away from home!
The Pemaquid Peninsula is a piece of "real Maine", with miles of well maintained hiking trails, the beautiful white sand beach and of course the famous Pemaquid Light House! Take a day trip out to Monhegan Island on board the Hardy Boat. It leaves from New Harbor twice a day! There are some fantastic eateries on the peninsula. Whether you're looking to eat your lobster out on the dock at Shaw's Wharf, or you prefer to have it cracked for you at the Bradley Inn, you'll find a verity of restaurants to please! If you'd like to have a day of outlet shopping, LL Bean is a 50 minute drive south and the Camden Hills are 45 minutes up the coast! Antique shops are everywhere and the finest botanical gardens in the northeast are just 40 minutes in the town of Boothbay. Come explore the magic!
