Why The Owner chose Peaks Island

Our family has summered on Peaks Island for 5 generations. We couldn't imagine raising children without giving them that unique experience of summers on an island in Maine.

What makes this house unique

Our home is close to both the TEIA yacht and tennis club as well as the sandy beaches and the village. The island is great for biking, walking and jogging. It's the way life should be!

Perfect place for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at this property. My husband, 14 month old son and parents stayed for the week with two dogs and other family members visited for a day or two throughout the week. It was a perfect spot for us. The cottage is lovely - clean, well-stocked, cozy, and in a great location (about 3/4 of a mile from the ferry landing, the grocery store, a couple of restaurants, ice cream, etc.). We enjoyed being so close to the beach and my son had fun playing in the sand. We also spent lots of time on the porch and back deck - both really nice features of the house. The only advice I would pass on is that families with young children will want to think about a baby gate for the top of the stairs. We have family friends on Peaks who loaned us theirs. The owners were very nice, helpful and responsive throughout the entire experience (and before we located a baby gate actually referred us to a Peaks Island listserv we could use to see if someone had a one we could borrow). It was my first time using VRBO and it was a great experience! I highly recommend this cottage!

The cottage was charming and spacious and the location was perfect. However, the cottage was not as clean as we would have expected. We had to sweep all the floors before we even unpacked. Even so, we would recommend the property to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the information about the floors. We had work done a few days before the rental and it sounds like the workmen did not leave the cottage as we had expected.

This was a nice, well-equipped cottage, very comfortable with first rate kitchen ware. When we stayed, though, there was lots of road work during the week in front of the house, which was a bit disruptive, but the city almost certainly will have completed the work at the end of the summer. But for the road work, we would have rated the stay excellent rather than just good. Lots of fun board games and just a hop, skp and jump to a lovely beach. And walking distance to the commercial part of the island but far enough way so that it is quite quiet. Nice and helpful owners.

Peaks cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property on Peaks was wonderful! My husband, 13 month old son, and 2 dogs stayed for a week. We had some friends and family visit at the beginning of the week and everyone had fun. The house was well kept up, clean, and cozy. It had a beautiful breeze on very hot days! The owners were extremely nice and helpful. When the weather was nice (which it was for the majority of our stay) our son LOVED the beaches on the island. The beach across the street (literally a 1-2 minute walk from the house) was very convenient, but unfortunately there was a lot of construction happening on the street right in front of the house during our stay so we couldn't always easily access it. There were 2 other great beaches we went to on the island though so we always had a beach to go to. We enjoyed walks around the streets near the house and in the downtown and surrounding areas. The porch was nice to sit on and the lawn was perfect for our son and dogs to play on. We would recommend this property to couples, smaller families like ours, and definitely to other dog owners who would love to vacation with their WHOLE family :)

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, the construction in the street was difficult to get around this past spring. However, there is always a silver lining: We now have a smooth paved road, new water lines and soon will be connected to the city sewer!

An awesome week at the beach with a toddler (and grandparents!)

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time on Peaks Island staying at this property. My husband and I came up on Sunday with our 16 month old daughter and spent the next few days playing at the beach (a literal walk across the street; and a perfect beach for little ones), walking around the island, going out for ice cream, BBQing, and visiting Portland via ferry (especially loved the produce market right near the ferry). The island was quiet and folks were friendly. Then our parents came up for the last half of the week and we had more of the same: beach, cooking, walking, and time in Portland. It was so easy to get to Portland if you wanted to do some shopping or fine dining (or even the Children's Museum if fine dining is out of the question!), but there was enough relaxation to be had on Peaks. We attended a wedding at the end of the week (the original reason for this vacation) and all in all we had an amazing time. The house was all we could have hoped: clean, comfortable, newer kitchen, washer/dryer, and well-stocked for amenities -- I hope to come back again and again. We were nervous about travel with a 16 month old but the house was all we needed: plenty of space for her and her toys, a great yard to run around in, and most importantly, very easy access to the beach. We never even had to go to the nearby playground or library, but it was good to know they were there if we needed it. We also never rented or rode bikes, but they were in abundance and we would likely do that next time. Fortunately our daughter took a strong liking to the beach so that is where we spent most of our time! I can't recommend this property and Peaks Island enough; the owners spent a good amount of time with us when we arrived and answered all questions (and even dragged out the hose for us to hook up a sprinkler for our daughter) and left a thorough and friendly list of things to know about staying at the house. They were knowledgeable, kind and easily accessible. All in all, we had the best first vacation with a toddler we could have imagined!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this cottage on Peak's Island. The deck was a wonderful gathering place for our family members. The bedrooms were accommodating and the kitchen was very equipped with great pots, pans and dishes. It was also handy to have the dishwasher and washer/dryer. The Myer family does a great job making your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
