Description

NEW RENTAL FOR 2020!

If you are looking for an authentic Maine vacation on the coast, you will absolutely love this quintessential seaside cottage in South Harpswell, Maine. Step back in time to Gull's Rest....A charmingly renovated, 100-year-old Victorian gingerbread cottage located on a quiet lane in the desirable summer community of Pott's Point.

From the covered wrap around porch, you'll enjoy the smell of the sea, the feel of refreshing ocean breezes, the beauty of glorious sunrises, the sounds of lobster boats at work and seagulls at play.  Swim, kayak, explore the tidepools at Pott's Point Preserve, curl up with a book, or just sit and savor the quiet long views of the multiple nearby islands.

Inside this cottage has been freshly painted and lovingly decorated to reflect it's coastal charm.  The first floor features a living room, dining room with seating for 4-6, updated bathroom with walk-in shower, and a small, but fully functional kitchen.  The four bedrooms, featuring brand new mattresses, are all located on the second floor and are named for islands in the vicinity:  Eagle Island Room (queen bed), Haskell Island Room (two twin beds), Pinkham Island Room (ocean view twin bed), and Bailey Island Room (ocean view full/double bed).

Located near the end of a peninsula, you'll appreciate being able to walk to Pott's Point Preserve and Estes Lobster House, as well as the public boat launch and dock.  The Dolphin Marina & Restaurant and Erica's Seafood are just a short 10-minute drive from the cottage, too.  You're a scenic 14 mile ride from Bailey Island restaurants like Morse's Cribstone Grill and Cook's Lobster & Ale House.

Brunswick (12 miles) boasts the Maine State Music Theater, and is home to Bowdoin College, which offers the Peary-MacMillan Artic Museum and Museum of Art, and hosts an annual summer International Music Festival.  Brunswick's bustling Maine Street offers a variety of fine dining options and food trucks, charming shops, a farmer's market, a movie theater, bowling alley and grocery stores.

If you want to explore the area, Gull's Rest is a perfect location for your home base.  Freeport, home to L.L. Bean's Flagship Store and numorous outlet stores, is just a 35-minute drive.  The Old Port in Portland, which features restaurants and shopping, is also less than an hour south.  To the north, visit Bath (22 miles) with its charming Main Street and Maine Maritime Museum, Boothbay Harbor (45 miles) and the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and Rockland (66 miles) and the Farnsworth Art Museum.  Scenic Popham Beach State Park (36 miles) and Reid State Park (36 miles) are the closest sandy beaches.  Options for day trips are endless, but regardless of where you roam, you'll appreciate retreating to the comforts of Gull's Rest.
