ISLAND COTTAGE: SECLUDED BY PINES, WALK TO AMENITIES

Peaks Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Recently renovated cottage retains its classic charm: wide pine board floors, butcher block counter tops, nautical and rustic decorative touches throughout. Enjoy quiet mornings at the breakfast bar in the fully equipped kitchen. The living room, with its open floor plan and cathedral ceiling, is perfect for classic board games in the evenings. The bedrooms combine modern, comfortable mattresses with rustic quilts and antique bed frames. The back deck, enclosed in lattice, offers outdoor privacy. Fall asleep to the distant sounds of foghorns. In the words of Rachel Field, 'Once you have slept on an island, you will never be quite the same.'

Ideal location at the end of a street, surrounded by trees with wooded lots on three sides, the cottage feels secluded in the woods, yet is five minutes walk to the ferry wharf, grocery store, restaurants and beaches. Enjoy the leisurely pace of Peaks Island life with all of the attractions of Portland only 20 minutes away by ferry: the best of both worlds.

I teach tennis for a living, a game I learned on Peaks Island. I look forward to my weeks on Peaks Island all year. I always sleep better to the rhythm of foghorns and bell buoys, sounding out in the channel. Family time at Shoot the Moon cottage is a highlight of my year, every year.

I grew up summers on Peaks: swimming in Casco Bay, hunting sea glass on the backshore, building forts in the woods. I wanted my kids to know this beautiful, quiet place that remains largely unspoiled and full of warm, genuine people. And my parents live there year round too!

We love to walk to the beach, the store and ferry for quick jaunts to Portland. We eat our favorite Maine foods--lobster, red hot dogs, wild blueberry muffins and whoopie pies--at our breakfast bar in the kitchen. And in the evenings, we play bocce ball on the back lawn, watch movies from our video collection, and play board games. It's a place full of simple, family pleasures.

We (a mom, a dad, two teens, a gammy and a pampy) had a wonderful visit. Perfect location for access to island fun and amenities. Before booking we were concerned about not being right on the water, but all that was washed away after the first day. We could still hear ocean sounds from the house, walk to the water and market; and probably most importantly ice cream and fresh lobster. We brought our bicycles for quick and easy access around the island. It was a bonus having a washer and dryer. The library (book case) and board games are a nice touch. At times, the seclusion of the lot provided the impression that we were all alone on the island. We played bocce and threw the football and baseball in the yard. The owner was extremely helpful with our questions prior to our stay. We would definitely recommend to others. The only disappointment: we only had seven days.

Amazing location with all the comforts of home

This is an exceptional cottage located just steps from downtown but with the privacy of the middle of the woods. There are beautiful gardens throughout the yard and a big deck with a ton of privacy. We've rented this house multiple times and we're always excited for our next visit. The house is very well appointed with plenty of comfortable bedrooms and a spacious living room/kitchen area. The house is always spotless upon arrival and all of the appliances are up to date and working perfectly. The house decor is modern with many large windows to allow in natural light. I would recommend this property to any family or couple looking for a great island experience that's close to everything. We almost never bring our car over to the island as this house is close enough to walk from the ferry. Our favorite place in the house is definitely the back deck - it's just been renovated in the last year and there is a ton of privacy from surrounding neighbors. It's a great place to entertain with the large gas BBQ grill just steps from the deck.

If you're looking for a great island rental at a great price this place will not disappoint.

Private and Lovely!

Just spent two weeks at Shoot the Moon and we are ready to plan our next trip! The house is set off from the street giving it a more private feel with a generous backyard for the kids to throw a baseball around...The house is comfy and, particularly on rainy days, the cathedral ceilings in the living room create a comfortable open space so hanging indoors for a bit is relaxing. We spent many evenings on the back deck while the kids were sleeping on the second floor out of earshot from conversation. Shoot the Moon's location is perfect--just a short walk into own for ice cream, morning papers & coffee....or to jump on the ferry to head into Portland for the day or to grab dinner. Great value for the Peaks experience....we highly recommend Shoot the Moon.

Wonderful for Families

We spent a week here with our two small children in Summer 2010, and can't wait to return in 2011. The cottage is filled with light and has a spacious yard, as well as a comfortable, open living room and kitchen area. Not only is it just a short walk into town (to library, restaurants, bike rental shop, general store, and ferry), but there is also a small playground just across the street, which is really ideal for families with preschoolers or toddlers.
We loved hearing the fog horns at night, and appreciated being tucked on a quiet side street, but still incredibly close to everything. Our children had a fantastic time playing in the tide pools at a lovely sandy beach recommended by the owners.
This is a relaxing place to escape from our hectic, busy lives! A wonderful cottage on a very special island!

We spent a fabulous week here in August of 2009. The house is comfortable, clean, and more than ample room for adults and kids. The property is perfectly situated to give you a sense of having your own private space, but is close to EVERYTHING! Owners are great to work with, too! We will definitely rent again in the future, just a question of how much time we can squeeze out of our busy schedules to get there again!!
