COZY ISLAND HIDEAWAY

Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Address: 274 Island Ave., Peaks Island, Maine 04108, USA

The Feathered Nest is a tranquil hideaway on Peaks Island, Maine, with a view of Diamond Passage. It's just an 8-minute walk from the Casco Bay ferry to/from Portland, and a hop, skip and a jump to Centennial Beach. Peaks Island offers boating, walking, bicycling, picnicking, birdwatching, plus some nice restaurants. There are several nice sandy beaches. Portland is convenient for entertainment and shopping.

Wraparound porch! If you're like us, you'll spend most of your waking hours on the spacious front deck - at the picnic table or in the generous hot tub - watching the birds (birders, ask for a list), the deer, and the boats go by. The living room has windows galore. Even when you're indoors you'll feel as if you're outdoors. If it gets chilly there's a wood stove to keep you cozy (oil heat, too).

The dining room has sliders to the deck - so you won't miss any of the action. The modern kitchen is well-equipped, including a convection oven (we love to cook!) and a dishwasher (who wants to wash dishes on vacation?!) ...plus, there's a Weber grill on the porch. Upstairs, the master bedroom is spacious with great windows and views. It has a queen size bed.

The guest bedroom has a double bed. Both beds have high quality mattresses so you can count on waking up refreshed. Plus, for overflow guests, the sofa is mattress quality (twin size). The sumptuous upstairs bathroom has a double shower to die for! It's made of beautiful hand-painted Talavera tile from Mexico. And, for those chilly mornings, the tiled floor has built-in heat! A half bath is conveniently located on the main floor, and a washer and dryer in the cellar.

About The Owner

I have lived most of my adult life in Portland, Maine, USA. We love spending time at our island cottage (VRBO listing #118778). For several months each winter, we live at Casa Guadalupe in Merida, Mexico (VRBO listing #118785). Since we can't be in both places at once, it's gratifying that we can share our special homes with others!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002

Beautiful old fashion home! The bathroom upstairs is the most amazing bathroom I have ever seen... It was nice and clean. I was not aware it was a personal home. But still gorgeous
