Very enjoyable stay
"Cozy house. Plenty of space. Great view. Short walk to Pemaquid Lighthouse. Bar / restaurant a short walk up the road. Outdoor fire pit plus indoor fireplace for those rainy days. Firewood being included was a huge plus. Owner is a great guy and easy to work with. Highly recommended."

"I hesitate to write a great review of Laughing Gull Cottage because I want to keep it all to myself and have it available whenever we want to go back--which in a perfect world would be all the time. But, unfortunately, we loved Laurie and Tom so much that I have to be honest. The cottage is peaceful, beautiful and just the right amount of rustic. The crashing waves right outside the bedroom window, the Adirondack chairs on the water's edge and the spectacular view made one day feel like a week away. Having never been to Maine before, we didn't know what to expect of New Harbor and the Pemaquid Peninsula. When we booked the cottage, we wanted a quiet area--not too touristy. But as we got closer I worried that my husband and two teenage daughters would be bored, that we needed a more bustling area like nearby Boothbay. How wrong I was! We kayaked, went on the Puffin tour, spent a day in Portland, a day in Round Pond, saw Irish fiddlers in a restored one-room schoolhouse, ate the best cinnamon buns at the Cupboard, crab cakes at Muscongus Bay Lobster, lobster rolls at Shaws, fish and chips at the Contented Sole, and pretty much ate Maine wild blueberries the rest of the trip. We never even made it to the beach! I guess we'll leave that for next time."

"We stayed here for the fall foliage in late September. This is a great location for us and the areas we wanted to visit. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Great kitchen since we bought back lobsters/seafood to cook. The only thing that was misleading is that you must clean the linens before you check out and also drive your trash to the dumpster that was 15 mins away. I figured that is what the cleaning fee would include that but it doesn't. Otherwise we had a great time! Thank you!"

"My wife and I spent the month of September, 2014 at The Barn House and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The area is quiet (you have to go 20 miles to find a T-Shirt, there are great groceries, restaurants and resources very close by. Lots of short or long day trips in the vicinity...car is a must. The owner Katie is great and so are all the neighbors that we met. Definitely on our "To Do Again" list."
