BREATH-TAKING WATERFRONT COTTAGE WITH BOAT DOCK

Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 0-4)

Beautiful cottage with its own boat dock and mooring – located towards the quiet end of the island and close to the island beach. This cottage has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed and a sleeping loft which has 2 - full size beds. The kitchen has all new appliances. Located off to the side of the kitchen area is a set of French doors that will take you out onto a secluded deck with awning and a breathtaking view of the ocean and spectacular sunsets at night. The bathroom has been newly updated to include a walk-in shower stall and a washer/dryer unit. The main part of the house is open with dining area and a gorgeous seating area where you can kick off your shoes and enjoy the view or watch a little TV. The yard has been beautifully fenced off and has a stone patio with fire pit and Adirondack chairs overlooking “Diamond Passage’”. This property also has its own 30ft private dock where you can sit and relax or play and swim.

There is hourly ferry service to and from the island that will accommodate your vehicle if you decide you need one. Once you arrive on the island it is a whole new way to enjoy life such as having your own lobster bake with fresh Maine lobsters, biking, swimming, kayaking, hiking, or just take a walk around the island. There is shopping in the unique island shops, stop for an ice cream or go to dinner at one of the fine restaurants the island has to offer or hop the ferry back to the mainland and experience all that the Old Port area of Portland has to offer. This is the perfect spot to relax and find yourself again.

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.

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.

This is a very well maintained and cute cottage on Peaks. It had all of the necessary items that you
need when you are away from home. Fantastics views and beautiful sunsets can be seen from the
deck. There is a very nice dock for your boat and a fire pit to relax around at night. Overall a wonderful
place!

My husband and I just returned from our Maine honeymoon and we are thrilled that we had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful cottage. The ower & his assistant were terrific, the accommodations were perfect and it was all we could do not to chain ourselves to the front porch in protest of having to leave.

Firstly, the photos included here do not do this charming cottage justice. The wood paneled walls make this home warm and cozy. The rear deck offers some outstanding views of Casco Bay and the sunset. With many windows throughout, its bright, cheerful and simply amazing. We are already saving up for a trip next year.

While we did not take advantage of the boat dock as much as we had planned due to the cooler temperatures, it would be a wonderful option in the summertime for swimming, fishing or if you have the means boating.

Peaks Island itself, is lovely and quaint. There's little action going on there, with only three restaurants/bars and a small (but very well stocked) market, ice cream shop and a small cafe for breakfast, all near the ferry terminal. So if your looking for a relaxing getaway, this is definitely the place. The ferry runs hourly for most of the day so if you need a little action during your stay, its a short ferry trip to town.

Most of the locals get around using golf carts or small electric cars and make weekly or monthly trips to the mainland to stock up on supplies not readily available on the island. They are super friendly and were very helpful to a couple of New Yorkers.

Prior to our arrival we stopped at Shaw's supermarket in Portland to purchase items we thought we would need for the trip, since I was unaware of how well stocked Hannigan's market was. I shouldn't have bothered. The selection was great. Apparently the Hannigan's slogan is "If we don't have it, you don't need it" The meat counter, while limited in comparison to big chains, carries great quality meats... beautiful steaks, freshly ground beef and chicken. I'm almost sorry we bought meat in town.

Note: The Casco Bay Ferry service, while on time and very handy, is a little wonky. Their website information (pricing and schedule) is not entirely accurate, so I suggest calling ahead before arrival. It is only by some miracle that we scored a car ferry when we arrived because according to the schedule I picked up, we had missed the last car ferry by an hour.
