Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Our much loved family cottage is over 100 years old. It has been updated for the 21st century but retains its charm and character. As the pictures show we kept the antique cottage furniture but have added WiFi, cable, new mattresses and painted the upstairs rooms.
There are two porches, a gracious front porch, which gets the morning sun and a large screened, rear porch. It is from the screened porch and from the house that one has breath taking views of Portland, Portland Harbor, other islands and on a clear day Mt. Washington.
The cottage faces west so the view each evening is of the sunset, sometimes turning the land and water to rose sometimes to gold.
We have a large eat in kitchen a dining room and a living room, with lots of book shelves filled with choices to meet everyone's interest. The first floor bathroom has a claw foot tub and is off the kitchen.
Up-stairs are three bedrooms, one master, one double bed and third with twin beds.The full bath with a shower is off the master bedroom.
Our cottage is a ten minute walk from the ferry and the island shops and library. It is a few houses from the school yard, which has a playground and basketball court. It is also only a short walk, or bike ride, to the island clubhouse for children's camp, tennis or sailing.
We also have a good sized yard for playing ball.
This is the perfect family vacation spot.
