  • Perfect Midcoast Getaway

    "This house is very comfortable, clean and well furnished. There are antiques in the home and the owner displays examples of her wonderful paintings, as well as hand painted walls and other interior finishes. There are personal touches throughout. The kitchen is well equipped and perfect for making three meals a day. The beds are excellent; we slept well after long days exploring the Midcoast. The yard is nice and very well landscaped, including sculpture. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance of Downtown Rockland with its galleries, shops and restaurants. It is also walkable to Harbor Park. This is a perfect location for visiting the coast of Maine and its charming villages and scenic coast. We highly recommend it (and will certainly stay again)."

  • Perfect place for our last "hurrah of summer"

    "The Owl's Nest was the perfect place for our family of 8--4 grandparents, 2 children, and 2 grandchildren. The expansive porch was the perfect setting for our morning cup of coffee as we watched the fishermen check their lobster traps and a glass of wine in the evening as we watched the sun set. We fished (our grandson caught a lobster on his fishing line) , played ping pong, made smores by the fireplace, walked to the East Boothbay General Store for doughnuts each morning, and simply soaked in the beauty of our surroundings. It is the quintessential Maine cottage with every amenity needed to have a fun filled week--comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, and a perfect location for easy access into Boothbay."

  • A perfect Maine vacation

    "As we drove down Pemiquid Trails to the Laughing Gull cottage we admired the beautiful homes along the ocean and the quiet of the street. And then we came to the cottage, we could tell it was a log cabin built many years ago and situated on a perfect piece of property. The windows had window boxes with beautiful yellow and blue wildflowers. The property was extremely well manicured, and the pine trees in the front on the ocean side couldn’t have been more picturesque. Two white picket chairs sitting there, just waiting for us to come out with a good glass of wine and watch the Sun set. Once we entered the cabins, we immediately left all the stress at the door; we felt like we were home. The cabin was beautiful, well-appointed and so peaceful. Every amenity was thought of and we needed to bring nothing but our clothes, books and food. The cabin was immaculately clean and smelled fresh. The kitchen had every cooking utensil you would need, even Lobster plates and a lobster pot! Plenty of dishes, silverware even a poaching pan for eggs. We found additional treats, such as, the bathroom had a heater, the bed had a mattress warmer and propane heater that could heat the whole house. The small barn out back had more than enough fire wood to satisfy the beautiful ocean stone fireplace, it was huge and burned beautiful fires – what a treat. Plenty of activities to do within a close ride, lot of trials, and sites to see, good restaurants. Additionally two well-maintained bikes were in the barn for our use. The Host was also in residence and came over to introduce himself and ask if we needed anything to give him a call. It is a good feeling to have the owner close by – just in case. We are so pleased with finding the Laughing Gull that we have booked two weeks next year. Kathie and Jonathan"
