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.

About Valerie Brown
We are Hiram and Valerie Brown. We reside in Owls Head, Maine except when we are in the land of enchantment at our cabin. Hiram, a life-long resident of Coastal Maine and Valerie a transplant from NJ in 1974. 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 just outside of our door and also throughout this enchanting island. Additionally we enjoy the friendliness, sincerity, and warmth of the island residents. We are only approximately 3 hours from the island and therefore are able to enjoy it throughout the year. Winters, of course, are cold, however, the radiant heat keeps us comfortable. 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 delighted to share Gull Cove with our guests and feel quite certain that you too will enjoy your time spent there
Valerie Brown purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Valerie Brown chose North Road
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Lovely cottage on the water
Campobello is a magical spot, and this cottage, overlooking the bay, is as magical as the island. It’s well-equipped, very comfortable, airy, and has a wonderful screened-in porch with water view. It offers total privacy, yet is close to the island’s store and only a few minutes from the International bridge. With no TV or internet (although there is a huge DVD selection and cell phone coverage), it’s the perfect spot cor those looking for a true getaway. There’s a canoe/kayak launch just below the house.
Thank you so much for the welcomed, glowing, review of my cottage on Campobello Island. It is very much appreciated. Key words that I picked up in your review were: magical, airy, porch, and comfortable. Those words, along with the seclusion that the cottage offers, were our goals when we built the cottage in 2002-3. I believe this was your second visit. I would look very much forward to welcoming you back should you once again vacation on the beautiful island of Campobello.
Beautiful, cozy location with everything you could need. Wonderful, kind owners!
We came up for a long Memorial Day weekend and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage with a beautiful location. Thank you very much!
Thank you so much for the impressive review, it is very much appreciated. I'm delighted that you enjoyed Campobello and my cottage. I look forward to your return at some point in the future.
We came for relaxation and got everything we hoped for
I've just received your very kind and complimentary review of "Gull Cove." I'm delighted to know that you found it a relaxing home away from home and that it had everything you had hoped for. It's those words and the many similar reviews that I have received that mean so much. Relaxing is one of the many perfect words to describe my cottage.
Should you choose to visit beautiful Campobello at any time in the future, I would be very happy and pleased to welcome you back to "Gull Cove" for another relaxing and satisfying stay.
My thanks to you for choosing Gull Cove for your vacation rental and for the much appreciated review.
Another perfect week at Gull Cove! Thank you, Valerie!
Thank you so much. I'm, as always, so happy that you enjoyed a "perfect week." Will look very much forward to your returning next year for your 4th "Gull Cove" vacation.
Warm regards, Valerie
Perfect family getaway!!!
Just returned from a week away at 'Gull Cove' and I can say without hesitation that the accommodations at Gull Cove were close to perfect for our family of four. We have booked other cabins throughout New England, Canada, PEI, and Campobello Island and Gull Cove has been by far the best. From the well equipped kitchen, to the layout of the cabin, to the vast DVD collection and games. The owners have truly thought of everything that you could/would need and more. My favorite spot was the screened in porch where I often watched the sun rise and set. There were four rocking chairs on the porch to sit on and take in all the splendor of the area. Whether that was the seagulls flying by or the little brown resident rabbit that came out for some grass for breakfast most mornings. We often ate our meals on the screened in porch as well. Having the two bedrooms and the two baths at opposite ends of the cabin was great. It gave the kids their space and my wife and I ours. The cabin is remote and besides the folks digging for clams across the bay each day...we never saw another sole while at the cabin. Valerie truly is a pleasure to e-mail with and is quick to respond to any questions or needs. We look forward to returning to Campobello Island in the future and we hope that we're lucky enough to stay at Gull Cove again! Nate R.- Maine
Secluded; private; quiet; clean; comfortable and well stocked!!!
As mentioned in above title, this cottage/cabin/house rental is Secluded; private; quiet; clean; comfortable and well stocked!!! I cannot say enough good things about this place! This is our second time there and would highly recommend it to anyone. The large screened in porch is a plus, as you can still sit out there during the rain and not get wet. The cottage is clean and bright and plenty big, offering an extra bedroom with extra full bath. We never use it, as it is just my husband and I but would be perfect for an extra couple; in laws; kids; etc. It has its on private entrance also.
The king size bed in the master is very comfortable and there is plenty of room! And you won't have to go far to catch a glimpse of the sunrise from your bed. Everything you could possibly need is there and some. There is also a crockpot which is nice, if you want to drive around and come back to a nice meal.
There are at least 3 restaurants on the island...atmosphere is soso and menu is not huge but the food is good when you do not feel like cooking. Also, the neighboring town Lubec Maine, has a few more restaurants.
We do not want nor need to hook up to WIFI at the cabin...as we know if we really really have to, we can connect on the island at the visitor center or small grocery store, etc. maybe even the library. We prefer going to a little bigger store in Lubec for groceries but the one on the island is definitely adequate and also carries firewood for the woodstove. The cottage has more than enough choices for movies and for music, we pull away from tv watching...and love to hear the sounds of nature but while playing games, it is nice to be listening to music some of the time. Our favorite game is scrabble, which is there but we always seem to bring our own. We get much reading done but be sure to download your kindle books prior to cottage, so they can be available to you to read. We learned this the hard way...lol.
You can see seals and an occasional bald eagle but you need to be looking for them. We found a few beaches to walk and look for sea glass or smooth stones. So many beautiful spots for taking pictures, so do not forget to bring your camera, wherever you go.
Valerie is very helpful with any questions or concerns you might have...we have written many emails to each other...a pleasure to talk with. You will not regret your stay but you have to be ok with QUIET...on occasion, you may hear the sound of a small boat.
G & D from N.H
Thank you, G&D, for the very complimentary accolades on my cottage. It is very much appreciated. My goal is now, as it always has been, to make certain as best I can, that my guests find a comfortable, clean, home away from home to enjoy their vacation time. The seclusion is very important to me as well and notes from my guests always mention their appreciation of peace and quiet and "getting away from it all." Should you decide in the future to return once again to Campobello, hopefully you will consider returning to "Gull Cove" for your third visit. I very much look forward to welcoming you back.
Thank you again,
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.
