About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Well Equipped, Seaside Hideaway
Located in the Welshpool section of Campobello, overlooking 'Harbour Delutre,' stands our cabin, which we have named 'Gull Cove' because of the abundant amount of seagulls who visit each day, along with all of the water fowl. The cabin can sleep 5. Our cabin has two bedrooms, each with their own full bath. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other twin beds and a fold out couch. Both bedrooms have doors leading outside and both overlook the cove. The cabin is bright and sunny with a beautiful view from every room in the house, as well as our very special screened porch. The porch is equipped with a table and chairs for outdoor dining, as well as rocking chairs to relax any time of the day. The living room is very cozy and has double doors that open to the porch. The property has a 30-40ft drop to the water therefore not suitable for young children unless accompanied by an adult at all times. Small well behaved pet welcome. By choice, there is no TV or Internet. When there, our choice is to leave the worries of the world behind us, enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, catch up on reading or just sit, enjoy and allow our minds and bodies to relax. There is accommodation for DVD's, with large diverse library of movies. Also a variety of CD's, books, magazines, and board games. The kitchen is fully equipped including electric range, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer. There is also a charcoal BBQ, which is stored on the porch and must be moved outside for cooking. The cabin is in a private setting well off the street and surrounded by trees as well as the lovely views as mentioned. The cabin does have radiant heat if needed. Cell phone reception is poor to non-existent. We do provide a land phone for emergency use only, as we have a large family back in the states. Calls from the land phone to anywhere on the island and to Lubec are no charge, however, calling anywhere outside of that area is extremely expensive. Therefore we would require a $50.00 phone use fee, which will be returned in full if phone is not used outside of the Campobello/Lubec area. If the phone is used outside of that area, we will rebate accordingly. There is positively NO SMOKING in cabin or anywhere on property. We've grown weary of the constant clean up of cigarette butts.

This log cabin style cottage is located on the unique and spectacular island of Campobello and offers glorious sunrises and sunsets. Witness foggy days or nights and go to sleep with the lull of fog horns around and near the island. Observe seals, a large variety of ducks, great blue herons, eagles, as well as many other varieties of birds from your rocking chair on the long screened porch. You can also enjoy meals and/or beverages on the screened porch which has an outdoor dining set. On your computer, type in Bay of Fundy to learn about the highest tides in the world and then come to Campobello and see for yourself. Tide rises and falls 8-10ft per hour. It's truly amazing to watch. Attractions include the former summer home of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, now a museum and within the 2800 acre Roosevelt Campobello International Park, which is supported by both USA and Canada, the only one of its kind in the world. A new feature is "Tea With Eleanor," highly popular with locals and guests as well. There are numerous hiking trails within the park with breathtaking views of the ocean and with benches and picnic facilities throughout. While a guest on this splendid island, enjoy friendly, very helpful locals, visit beautiful mile long Herring Cove, which has a sand and pebble beach for swimming or beach combing, play at the 9 hole provincial golf course located high above the sea with breathtaking views. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing, bicycling, hiking, fishing, bird watching, whale watching tours on Passamaquoddy Bay, gift shops, Head Harbor Lighthouse, where at low tide you can walk on the bottom of the sea. There are also trails and picnic tables at the lighthouse location. You will be asked for a $5.00 preservation donation and $10.00 to tour the lighthouse. Stop in and enjoy a delicious meal at Family Fisheries, pick up a picnic lunch or ice cream from their take out. A new restaurant on island, "Fireside," for wonderful food, licensed bar, and spectacular views of the bay and Eastport, Maine. You can ferry across the bay to Eastport, Maine and visit charming shops and restaurants, or drive over the FDR bridge to Lubec, Maine, also with many interesting shops and restaurants and a candy shop located just out of the center with mouthwatering chocolates and beautiful handmade clothing and jewelry as well as other interesting and unysual items. In Lubec you will also find West Quoddy Head light, the eastern most point of land in the USA, also with hiking paths and picnic tables. There are no gas stations located on Campobello, however, there is one in Lubec. There is also a medical facility located in Lubec. Most of all, and our personal favorite, is the peace and tranquility of Campobello Island, as well as the spectacular beauty, and the helpful, warm, and wonderful people. You will find our cottage, "Gull Cove" a welcome hideaway from our harried, electronic world. So, whether you choose to remain at the cabin or go out and about, your home away from home will always welcome you back offering beautiful surroundings, comfort, peace, tranquility, spectacular views, as well as non-stop entertainment with our friends of the sea and air, not to mention the amazing tides.
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We are Hiram and Valerie Brown. We reside in Rockland, Maine except when we are in the land of enchantment at our cabin. Hiram has been a life-long resident of Rockland, Camden, Rockport area and I, having been born and raised in Long Branch, NJ, moved to Maine in 1974 continuing my work in the medical field as manager of the chemotherapy unit at our local hospital for 25 years. Hiram continues as a master electrician. Our grown children and grandchildren reside in Maine, NH, NY. During the years since we built our cabin, we've spent many happy hours enjoying all that it has to offer, as well as the spectacular beauty of the island and its residents. We continue to go to the island often, even through the winter. We enjoy the American Thanksgiving holiday there each year with friends from home and friends from the island. We have no doubt that you will enjoy your vacation in our cabin. We're so happy to share it with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose North Road, NB, Canada:
Prior to purchasing the land on Campobello, we visited the island at least once a year for several years. In 2001, while staying on the island, one day we just rode around and pulled into this driveway. It opened to the beautiful view of Harbour DeLoutre and we were sold! We found that it was for sale and purchased it. The following year we built the cabin.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with the property and then our cabin. The views, the tides, the wild life all spectacular. We have done a great deal of traveling in the states and Europe, but have never found any place that took our breath away like this lovely cottage that we call "Gull Cove" and the gorgeous, refreshing, magical, uncomplicated, island of Campobello.
