The perfect setting for your summer vacation on the Maine coast!
Leave the city behind and step into this one-of-a-kind authentic ocean-front cottage. On the inside of this cozy cottage, you’ll fall in love with the painted, wide plank floors, bookshelves, stone fireplace, and original paned windows. On the outside, the sites and sounds of the bold Maine coast, just steps away, will take your breath away. Sit on the porch in one of the Adirondack chairs and watch lobster boats pulling their traps, while sipping your morning cup of coffee. In the evening, witness gorgeous sunsets from the back lawn while enjoying a glass of wine. On a foggy day (you’re bound to have one), we suggest curling up by the fireplace with a good book or taking advantage of modern-day conveniences such as Direct TV, Apple TV, and WiFi.
Located near the quaint fishing village of New Harbor, this cottage is close to restaurants and gift shops, ice-cream parlors, a general store for grocery shopping, a gas station, historic lighthouse, library, and just down the road from one of the most beautiful beaches in Maine. The cottage itself is located on coveted Pemaquid Trail—a paved, yet private lane for walking, biking, and jogging.
The cottage has two bedrooms: The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed, dresser, and closet. The second bedroom has two twin-sized beds and a dresser. The cottage is also equipped with a livingroom sofa that can pull out into a full-sized bed. The eat-in kitchen is on the east side of the cottage. A bathroom, complete with shower, is just off the kitchen. Our rental rates included linens and towels (beds will be made up for you).
This cottage has a seven (7) night minimum stay. Reservations begin on a Saturday and end on a Saturday. Before Memorial Day and after Columbus Day, there is a three (3) night minimum.

Maine tranquility and beauty
After a 6 week driving trip around New England and Canada the laughing gull was the perfect finale. It is a quaint and cozy cottage surrounded by a beautiful ocean and coastal vantage. The stone fireplace and All the Vintage decor and well equipped kitchen was delightful. This is not a fancy place but I loved every minute here. Quiet. Peace. A place to breathe and renew .... I echo the 5 star reviews
The Laughing Gull by the Sea
The Laughing Gull is a story Book cottage by the sea. The cottage is small but cozy and everything you need is there. No need to bring towels or linen or anything but you and your needs. The kitchen has plenty of supplies and pots and pans. The scenery is gorgeous too. The caretakers are very kind. They make sure you have everything and are close by for any of your needs. The surrounding towns have wonderful restaurants and shopping. There are lighthouses and museums too. Our dog also enjoyed the walks. The fireplace is special on cool evenings!
We've spent a lot of time in Maine in the summer, but this has to be one of the best locations we've experienced. The coast ofJohns Bay is beautiful and Laughing Gull is in a perfect location to experience it. The Bristol area has much to do and spending time here is both relaxing and entertainng. If you want a luxurious cottage, this may not be for you, but the cottage is very comfortable for 2 people (4 max) and has everything you need Our hosts are very accommodating but respect their guests privacy too.
I can't think of a better or more relaxing place to spend a vacation. The cottage location is ideal and I loved watching the lobster boats going out each day knowing what I would have for dinner! It's always hard to leave such beauty.
Thank you so much for your kind words and repeated patronage! Thomas & Laurie, Hosts
A peaceful retreat
Laughing Gull Cottage helped me connect with the deep beauty of the Maine coast. The cottage combines a unique sense of place - an original log cabin with a large stone fireplace, cozy kitchen/dining area and covered porch - with modern conveniences such as a built-in iPhone charging station and Apple TV. The owners stopped by early on during my visit to say hello and make sure I had everything I needed. The cottage includes many charming touches -- colorful plates, framed photos of the area, dishes of beach glass and shells from the shore. I woke up every morning to the sound of the surf, opened the back door to smell the sea air, and began my day in quiet contemplation. An absolutely perfect week!
Lisa - thank you so much for your kind words and taking time out of your busy schedule to write this review. We truly enjoyed having you as a guest at the Laughing Gull Cottage. Thomas & Laurie
