About the Property

Bedrooms 2, Bathroom 1, Sleeps 4

“Come-Stay” at the Grey Gull . Relax in our charming serene cottage. Enjoy majestic views of the Maine water front on which sit not one, but two, cottages of similar construction and unique styles. Behind the Grey Gull, there is additional lodging upstairs in the garage apartment that offers amazing views of the water in a tree house like setting. The Grey Gull is a modified Cape located in Gouldsboro in the Acadia region. It offers seclusion, sweeping views, stunning sunrises and everything you need to enjoy your seaside vacation. When you turn into the beach rose lined gravel drive, the water greets you and is only 30 feet from the properties. Built in 1950, this cottage sleeps four comfortably. The garage apartment provides space for two people. The Gull is separated from the Blue Loon cottage by a fun scalloped fence.

The Gull’s simple furnishings give it a clean feel, top to bottom.
The kitchen is both fun and functional. There is a charming breakfast nook overlooking the water, a farmhouse sink and dishwasher. The living room looks out to sweeping long views of the water. The sofa is comfy in front of the gas stone hearth fireplace. A great spot to pick up the binoculars and do a little bird watching.
On ground level there is also a napping room with a day bed for a afternoon snooze. Upstairs are two loft bedrooms each with double beds . The screened front porch brings the ocean air in and is a beautiful spot to watch lobster boats check traps, wildlife and watch the sea weed boats go out to gather sea weed.

In an adjacent lot beside the Grey Gull is the Blue Loon. This charming cottage also sleeps four but is more contemporary than the shabby-chic charm of the Gull. Wicker furniture accents the living room, as does a gas wood stove. Pristine water views can be enjoyed from the comfy furnishings. In the kitchen, you will find a retro table and chairs, stainless steel sink and granite counter tops. There is a full-sized bedroom on the lower level. Upstairs there is a lovely little reading room and a separate bedroom with a double bed. The screened front porch offers grand views of the water and wildlife and a very nice spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful spot!

Both cottages are private, but also close to sightseeing and located less than one mile from a county-maintained boat launch. An explorer can launch one of our kayaks or a canoe into water at the cottages or at the county maintained boat launch less than a mile from the cottages. The pink granite shoreline at low tide is a great way to check out the sea life just beneath the rocks and sea weed. Or, enjoy a stroll to the bait shack and relax with your book at the picnic table that is on the long wharf overlooking the water.
Take a leisurely walk down the road and enjoy the fragrance of spruce and cedar. Activities in the Schoodic Peninsula villages of Prospect Harbor, Corea and Winter Harbor are a mere 15 minutes away as is stunningly beautiful Schoodic Loop Drive Park. Bar Harbor is less than an hour’s drive, but nearby Ellsworth(about 22 miles) offers shopping in some big box stores. Don’t miss John Edwards Market on Main Street to find organic groceries and a great wine selection …Summer events take place at Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor. Grindstone Neck public golf course (also in Winter Harbor), pubs, dining and Bartlett Maine Estate Winery and Catherine Hill Winery are nearby.
The town of Milbridge is about 14 miles north on US 1. Milbridge has a nice grocery store , a pharmacy, banks, dentist, doctors, and several nice restaurants…There is a great Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings in the Camden National bank parking lot.
We are pleased to offer our guests 10% off on all purchases at our specialty gift and accessories store, Riverlily. We are close by in the sweet little town of Cherryfield. (find us on Facebook or theriverlily)

Whether at the cottages, or out and about, here you will feel worlds away from the hustle bustle of a busy life… So, “Come-Stay!”

Owner info

About the owner: We bought this beautiful property about 10 years ago and have been working on it ever since...Lots of care and planning went into "saving" these little cottages...They were in pretty bad shape when we purchased them. We spent weeks (when we could) working on them. We built the garage apartment first so we could have a nice clean place to kick back after working on the cottages all day.

Why the Owner Chose Gouldsboro, ME, USA:
this property is very special. It is away from all hustle and bustle. The views from the cottage are just so amazing...a great place to unwind.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You can't get closer to the water! Beautiful sunrises! Lobster boats and seaweed boats cruise right out in your "front yard"!!!
