Gouldsboro cottage description

Enjoy breathtaking views from this seaside cottage on the coast of Maine. Very private setting, yet close enough for day trips throughout the area. Meticulously clean and well-appointed, this cottage provides guests with a relaxing place to call home when not out touring.

Babbling Brook Cottage sits at the edge of Gouldsboro Bay which is painted with lobster buoys marking the traps to be hauled with the daily catch of Maine lobster. Kayaking and sailing are both options along this pristine shore, and the easy access to the water’s edge make for a perfect day of exploring the coastline.

This newly renovated cottage offers a master bedroom with a queen bed and patio door to view the incredible Easternmost sunrise in the United States; a second bedroom with two twin beds; a fully equipped kitchen; a dining area; a large living room with a queen size sleeper sofa for the occasional visitor during your stay, along with patio doors overlooking the ocean; full bathroom; washer and dryer; deck offering breathtaking views; satellite TV; local phone service.

Gouldsboro is located in the middle of the Downeast and Acadia regions of Maine. Acadia National Park and the Bar Harbor region are only a mere hour drive and Quoddy State Park is about two hours away – perfect day treks only to return to the peace and quiet of this seaside haven. Get lost in time on our expansive deck where peace and quiet are endless. It provides a most tranquil spot for reading, relaxing, or bird watching.

More urban shopping needs can be met in nearby Ellsworth. With only a half hour drive you will find a couple of “big box” stores, dining experiences for every palate, and a wonderful Main Street experience. Only ten minutes east you will find the small coastal community of Milbridge, which is home to a quaint supermarket, banks, a gas station, two restaurants, a pharmacy, and an old time movie theater featuring new releases.

Our reasonable rate allows you to experience the ultimate vacation at a low price. Make this year the best vacation year ever! Contact us now to reserve your Maine vacation at Babbling Brook Cottage.

** To accommodate our guests with allergies we do not allow pets or smoking.
