  • Welcome to Down East - "The Way Life Should Be"

    "Breezy Point Cottage is beautiful. David should have earned his PhD in Architecture for the design and Kathy for her work in decorating it. It’s thoughtfully laid out, not too large, not too small, with things just where you’d put them if this was your home. Everything you need for a day, week, or month is there, including a wonderful library of area history and nature books and just enough fiction to occupy a rainy afternoon. It’s located on the perfect point in Birch Harbor so you can appreciate the ocean as well as the protected harbor waters with regular visits from your neighbors the ducks, mergansers, gulls, and eagles. Our family has been visiting the MDI area for six decades and has realized that the Schoodic area is our “go-to” location to escape the crowds in the main areas of the park (even in the fall). We’d stay on MDI and travel up the coast for a day of wave watching and hikes on Schoodic Point. This year we decided to stay near Schoodic and travel back to MDI for selected hikes, shopping, and dining. We are so glad we found Breezy Point! The new Schoodic Woods trails, and the day-trips that David provides in his materials, opened a whole new appreciation of the area to us. This is the real “Down East”! This area is so much more natural, and while there are fewer shops and restaurants, the folks here are welcoming, their products made on-site, and the food is excellent! Check out The Pickled Wrinkle, Corea Lunch on the Wharf, and Ironbound for great meals. The only “problem” is that you may find, as we did, that Breezy Point Cottage is all you need to spend a wonderful day here. Make absolutely sure to walk down to the rocks at dawn to enjoy the sunrise. Then be sure to have breakfast in the screened porch and listen to the waves over your cup of coffee. Watch the procession of ducks up and down the shore as they enjoy their breakfast buffet. Grab a book and head down to the shore but don’t be surprised if you find your attention wandering to the water and the sky and listening to the gentle action of the waves against the rocks. It’s a great way to while away a day in the sun and fresh air. After dinner load up the chimera and enjoy a fire as the sun sets and the stars come out. After the fire has died down head up to the top level and sit out on the upper deck. The view of the Milky Way and the sky full of stars is magnificent! Our thanks to David and Kathy – Breezy Point is truly “The way life should be”!"

  • Lovely private cottage with a beautiful view

    "We had such a fantastic time at Eagleview, the cottage was precisely as advertised. It was in the perfect location for us- close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor, and especially convenient for the Schoodic peninsula (wonderful sunrise at blueberry hill)- but still out of the way enough to have a private, cozy spot to relax with an absolutely wonderful view. We had a kayak delivered and were able to take it out twice around the island, such a beautiful place. There were so many things to do and see that there could probably never be enough time to do them all. And even though there is no bad weather, only weather, it turned out perfect for us. A little overcast and rainy when we arrived but sunny and comfortable the rest of the stay which helped provide some vivid fall foliage. Overall we had a fantastic vacation with a nice, comfortable place to relax at and come home to that we would recommend to anyone."

  • Outstanding Cottage by the Sea - our most favorite spot ever in Maine!

    "Dear PJ and Jeff, A simple thank you doesn't seem adequate to express our appreciation for welcoming Mom and me to the Grey Gull this week! Being our third visit to Maine, we are always very particular to choose just the right property to spend our yearly mother and daughter trip, and your quaint peaceful and tranquil cottage by the sea exceeded all our expectations. You both ensured every detail of our stay was generously attended to, you went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable and comfortable trip. We can't help but feel blessed to have enjoyed your little slice of paradise, and we will always treasure this trip with fond and loving memories - thank you again for your kind hospitality, your generous hearts and every way, both great and small, you made Grey Gull our home away from home this week. We return home abundantly full with happy and grateful hearts! For anyone seeking heaven by the sea - visit Grey Gull - you'll have the time of your life - you have our wholehearted recommendation! Thanks again, PJ and Jeff!"
