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!
Kathleen Gullo purchased this House in 2012
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)!

Charming and Cozy
We enjoyed our stay at the New Harbor house. It was weekend wedding in the fall that brought us to Maine. The house was clean and well-maintained. The beds were comfortable with soft bedding and the towels were plush. The kitchen had all we needed to make a delicious dinner of local fish and a steak cooked on the grill. We enjoyed coffee and tea in the morning out back at the picnic table. The owners were responsive and helpful with anything you might need. They made a book with many great recommendations of things to do in the area. We visited Pemaquid Point lighthouse (a must!) and found the white sand beach of Maine and watched two loons play in the water. We would definitely book this house again next time we are in this area.
Thank you Pam for taking the time to write a review! I’m so glad that you were so comfortable and enjoyed this truly magical part of Maine!
I hope to host you in the future and I hope you enjoy a peaceful year!
Charmingly home away from home!
Very lovely home, comfortable and clean! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and Kathleen made sure we had everything we needed!
Lovely old home. Comfortable and great for ten people. Nicest owners imaginable.
Super convenient. New Harbor is charming. The beach is just half an hour away ( white sand ) and Lobster rolls are readily available !!!
large comfy house - great for family get togethers
We booked this place over labor day weekend and found it had everything we needed. Lots of dishes, pans, coffee maker, wine glasses, kitchen is well stocked. linens and towels were plentiful too even with a large family. It has 5 very comfy bedrooms and a rec room for hanging out. The back yard was great for family dining. came with a grill for BBQ'ing. Easy to access, its along side a "not so busy" road that leads to a beach and the lighthouse about 3 miles away was also a great spot to check out. Neighbors were also great.
if you are looking to get away from the city and enjoy a peaceful night stay, with enough local attractions to keep you entertained, this s a great place and great locations.
We stayed at Robins Nest while at Pemiquid Point for a family wedding. The house itself was perfect, very clean, comfortable and had everything you could possibly need with a great backyard for company. The location is also perfect with the beach right down the street and the local grocery store was great with very nice selection of meats. It was a wonderful stay and Kathleen and Bob were so friendly and helpful with everything, we would highly recommend this home to anyone!
The Palatino Family
We loved this house and our stay on the Pemaquid peninsula.
The house was perfect for our family reunion. It was spacious, light, comfortable, and nicely furnished. The sitting room upstairs allowed the kids to have their own space. It was great to work with Kathleen, who provided a wealth of information about the area. We loved being so close to beaches and in such a scenic area for walks -- and the ice cream shop was wonderful. We would definitely come back.
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!
