Located off quiet Cape Rosier Road in Harborside, a village in Brooksville, this antique log cabin provides the quintessential Maine experience. Built in 1912, Gull's View overlooks pretty and peaceful Smith Cove with views of the many islands and Castine in the distance. Enjoy rustic and comfortable living with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and living room with magnificent functioning stone fireplace. French doors open onto the large, wrap-around, screened-in porch. Enjoy meals in the dining room overlooking the cove, or on the porch at the "lobster table". The furnishings combine modern comfort without losing the cozy antique log cabin feel. Satellite TV and reliable DSL Wifi keep you connected while still being 'away from it all'. A heat pump provides cooling during hot weather as well as heat for the cooler fall season. The cabin has a queen bed and two single beds. Maximum occupancy is four people due to septic considerations.
Gull's View is minutes from historic Holbrook Island Sanctuary with its diverse ecosystem, where visitors enjoy walking and bicycling on its network of old roads and paths.
Things to note: Gull’s View has a steep, tall embankment down to the beach and is not be suitable for young children. Old granite steps are uneven in places, and access to the beach is down a steep set of newly built, sturdy stairs. The septic and water supply, as with other seasonal cabins and cottages, are not designed for heavy use. Parking for up to two passenger vehicles only is located by the main road and the lawn from parking to the entrance is on an incline. This property rents Saturday to Saturday from late June through mid October.
