  • came back for second year in a row for family vacation

    "we had such a great time last year that we came back for our family vacation again this August. The accommodations were perfect. The cabin is on a cove. We drank coffee on the deck and watched the sunrise over the ocean. We skipped rocks and collected shells during the day. At night, we grilled burgers and ate lobster under the stars. We used the kayaks to get to a secluded beach that the neighbors told us about. We used the place as a base camp to explore interior Maine and along the coast. It is an ideal location because it is very near lots of attractions, but distanced enough from the tourism and traffic that it provides a real escape and adventure. It is also unique in that the towns it is near are real towns and not just generic tourist towns. The cabin has two bedrooms, a warm and inviting living/ dining area and a kitchen with everything necessary to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The owners are kind and generous folks and that is obvious in our interactions with them as well as in the vibe of the home. It feels warm and welcoming. Highly recommended."

  • Perfect Silver Wedding Anniversary Retreat

    "We're from the UK and visited Pemaquid Point 4 years ago and fell in love with it. I went straight home and found this cottage online and have been saving it for a special event. As you can imagine my hopes and expectations were pretty high and I'm very happy to say they were met and exceeded. Laura was very friendly & efficient from the start, answering all my questions promptly by email and quickly returning our deposit after our stay. The cottage is in the most perfect location on its own little sandy beach. It faces west so we enjoyed some beautiful sunsets but the sun also appeared quickly in the morning so we had several breakfasts on the deck in the sunshine. We enjoyed some beautiful weather for late Sept/Early October and enjoyed cocktails on the beach as well as just chilling out & reading on the deck. When the weather wasn't so kind we just chilled out in the very comfy lounge with the doors open, enjoying the views and listening to the sea. The garden is a bit of a nature lovers dream. Monarch butterflies visited the asters and we watched loons, cormorants and seals from bed. We were also lucky to see 2 bald eagles flying over the deck. The cottage comes well equipped with wildlife identification books and we made full use of the telescope and binoculars for wildlife and star gazing. The bedroom has the same fabulous views. We slept with the windows opened and listened to the sea. The bed was very comfortable - I rarely sleep through when we're on holiday but did on this trip. The kitchen is very well equipped, as is the whole cottage - just those little things like arriving to find loo paper, coffee filters, tea kettle, soap, salt & pepper, washing up liquid, powerful shower, working WiFi make all the difference. We ate out at King Eiders Pub in Damariscotta a couple of times and Shaws at New Harbour. However we fell in love with the cupboard café, which is a couple of miles away, and their cinnamon buns - we breakfasted there 4 times in one week. We drove over to Mount Battie at Camden and Marhsall Point Lighthouse ( both about an hour ) and also went to the Botanical Gardens ( 45 minutes ) and Freeport for LL Bean ( 1 hr ) and, of course, the lighthouse and Pemaquid Beach. We've stayed at many vacation rentals worldwide and this made for one of the best holidays we've had. Thank you"

  • Lovely condo

    "My husband and I stayed in this lovely condo in October of this year and we were very comfortable and able to relax after our days exploring the area. It felt like home! The condo has more than the usual amenities usually found in a vacation rental. There were extra towels, paper products, kitchen supplies, and laundry items. I'm very fussy about the cleanliness of places we stay, and this home was spotlessly clean. The view from the deck was gorgeous with the trees showing their beautiful fall colors. It was very quiet in the condo. Many thanks to the Healy's for their quick response to questions and for making their home available for us to use while visiting Maine. We also appreciated the welcome note and bottle of wine. We loved the condo and hope to visit again in the future."

  • 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"
