About

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.

This is a cute house with many updates but parking is a challenge. Neighboring homes are very close and privacy is limited. Kitchen is difficult to work in but we did manage - not a lot of counter space. There are no closets in the bedrooms and the sofa is very uncomfortable. Potts Point Preserve is nearby - this is a lovely area in general.

This house took me back in time to a nice summer cottage by the sea. The house was very functional and the amenities outstanding. The only thing better than the house itself was the view off the back overlooking the inlet. Beautiful natural scenery all around, easy access to all that the area has to offer. You can fully relax here or spend days exploring the area and staying busy from this wonderfully located property.

We truly relaxed and enjoyed this lovely property. Clean as a whistle and supplied with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Bring as much as you can in the grocery department so you can relax and enjoy as the nearest grocery store is 16 miles away. Friends had advised us ahead of time so we were prepared and were able to chill and enjoy the wonderful view and surroundings!

Gull's Rest is the perfect Work from Home location! We were able to take evening and weekend excursions to balance our day. There are so many trails, quaint shops and top notch restaurants close by. The view from the property exposed us to the most amazing, never-seen-before sunrises. No filter needed!

Such a lovely holiday cottage -- so well-appointed, sparkly clean, and the right balance of charming and functional. We loved the quiet spot right on the sea, and found the residential / year-round feel of the neighborhood to be a welcome difference to the more seasonal/touristy islands. There are at least 2 easy, beautiful walks you can take right from the front door, and the neighbors are friendly and with local advice if you ask. The big deck, with the sea right there -- it's a magical place!

We had a wonderful stay at Gulls Rest, a quaint coastal cottage on the bay. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The beds were comfortable and the linen service provided nice crisp white sheets and towels. We enjoyed sitting on the Adirondack chairs and watching the sunrise and the ebb and flow of the tides. The wrap around porch with tables and chairs offered a perfect spot for eating meals. We took day trips to Orrs and Bailey islands and visited Bath and Boothbay Harbour. Lots of great hiking and shopping opportunities. A friend told us about Erikas Lobster Shack about 5 minutes away from the cottage. We had a great time meeting Tommy, the owner, his daughter, Ericka and a few locals while enjoying delicious lobsters and other fresh seafood at reasonable prices. Overall, we a wonderful experience and would definitely return.
