Perfect fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I rented Tim's amazing home for my boyfriend's birthday to give us a little R&R after a very busy summer. I couldn't have chosen better!

The house is about 1.5 miles from "town" so was very quite and peaceful, but still convenient for going out to dinner, grabbing groceries, and getting to and from the ferry. We enjoyed the porch, dock, and living area for many hours of lounging and reading. The sunsets were particularly beautiful from the dock. The cottage was equipped with anything we needed to cook meals (which we did most of the time!) and a comfy bed very good nights rest.

Best of all, it only took us about 2.5 hours to get to the house from Boston, but you felt very far away from everyday life. I would recommend leaving your car in Portland (there are a couple $10 per day lots) and taking advantage for the taxi and bike that Tim so gratefully provides. Can't wait till out next visit!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5
Your cottage was the ideal vacation for our family of 4. The boys loved the loft and yard, my husband announced upon arrival that between the dock, yard and porch he was not leaving the cottage he had all he needed! The view was amazing, loved watching all the action on the water, sunsets were fabulous. The cottage was clean, cozy and very comfortable! Thank you we hope to be welcomed back!!

Perfect Maine Island Setting with Incredible View

  • 5 of 5
The Waterfront Cottage is the perfect setting for a Maine Island getaway. The view is quintessential Coastal Maine- looking toward Little and Great Diamond Islands- with the charm of boats passing by and the sunsets. The cottage has all the amenities you need to relax on Peaks Island- full kitchen, charming living and dining space, comfortable beds, washer and dryer and covered outdoor deck overlooking Casco Bay. EVERYTHING YOU NEED! The outdoor patio is perfect for a fire in the chiminea during sunsets and the dock is perfect for relaxing in the sun with a book. Great island escape within a quick bike ride from the ferry to Portland! This was our second year staying here- we highly recommend it!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
Our family have stayed in a number of vacation rentals on Peaks Island and this one is the best - hands down. The photos don't do it justice. I love to sit and read and stare at the water and this lovely home provided a number of different ways for me to do just that - a sheltered deck off the kitchen, a hammock or lounge chairs in the side yard, or, the day it rained, comfy chairs and a rocker in the living room area. We didn't take advantage of the fire pit, but it's on my list for next time. I did use the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit as a reading area, though.

The island is perfect for biking or walking and between the store and the restaurants down front, you don't need a thing. And don't forget about the history - WWII bunkers and Civil War connections. Take one of the tours of the island by golf cart - it's well worth it. We've been going to Peaks Island for a week's vacation for 7 years and my goal is to make it a two-week vacation one of these years.

I highly recommend Peaks Island in general and this cottage in particular.

Texans' Take

Texans' Take
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are in very stressful careers as journalists who work under constant deadlines. Within two days of arriving at this quaint New England cottage with its sloping, shaded lawn looking over Diamond Pass, we found ourselves fast asleep napping on a hammock. Now that is a vacation! My connection with and love for Coastal Maine dates back 40 years, and I really wanted our 15-year-old son to experience Maine at its quiet best. But as we traveled up from Texas, I worried that New England island life might be a bore for him. I worried needlessly. He loved it! When you think boat dock, boating comes to mind. But it's really about the swimming and enjoying the cool breezes coming off the waters of Casco Bay. The cottage was a perfect size for the three of us, yet we had room to entertain old friends. Underneath we found a large pot for boiling lobsters with a gas burner to heat that pot in the yard. Great for lobster "boils." BIke rentals on the island make the experience all the more quiet and quaint. Warning: Because linens are provided and the property owner rightfully asks that you wash all linens and towels before you leave, you probably want a later departure time on the day you are leaving. But as I told the property owner on the telephone, I very much hope to return ... and soon! What a delightful stay in a delightful cottage on a delightful island!

This was just perfect for us. The cottage is comfortable and cozy. The views are breathtaking. The dock is perfect, especially if you have a boat. Best to bring a car over on the ferry or rent a golf cart to get around the island. There is plenty to do on the island and to do in Porlland withing walking distance of the ferry which runs about every hour for the twenty minute ride in town. I am from Portland ME and very familiar with Peaks Island and must say there are no better places on the island to stay if you are looking for a quiet getaway. The cottage has everything you need and Bobby Hannigan will fix you up with all the food you need at the island grocery store. Tim the owner is great. He even left us a few beers in the fridge.
