Overview

Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We are redecorating!

For guests who have come in past years we wanted to share with you and new guests that we are redecorating the downstairs. We have painted the living room and dining room to lighten the interior. We are also replacing and editing furniture and decorative items. We try to balance the need for updating the cottage while maintaining the heritage and charm of our much loved family cottage, which is over 100 years young.

Within this charming cottage we have added WiFi, cable, new mattresses and painted breadboard downstairs and upstairs.

This is a home for vacation living in comfort. We are truly on the peak of Peaks Is.

Morning coffee is best enjoyed on the sunny front porch where you can welcome the day and say hello to the neighbors. However end of day wine should be savored on the screened porch in the late afternoon watching the sunset It is from the screened porch, as well as 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.

Great family vacation at the perfect cottage on Peaks!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just spent the most amazing vacation on Peaks and this cottage was terrific! The owners Jean and John were so helpful and friendly, answering all our questions before and during our stay at their charming, comfortable cottage.
It is perfectly and conveniently located about a ten minute walk from the grocery store, post office, ferry, stores and restaurants on Peaks. It's only about a two minute walk to the beach too.
The cottage was very clean and completely equipped with everything our family needed during our stay, including a barbecue that we used many times. The rooms are all nicely decorated with many family photos and mementos. There's also a large screened in porch on the back of the house where we enjoyed many meals. It's also the perfect spot in the house to watch the lovely sunsets each night over Casco Bay.
The lilac bush at the front of the cottage was in full bloom so we cut fresh flowers and put them all over the house so we could enjoy that lovely scent all week.
There are also games, puzzles and playing cards there which we used all week.
This cottage certainly was full of "sunshine and laughter" the entire week we were there and we won't stay anywhere else when we return to Peaks!
Thanks Jean and John!!

This cottage is everything that has been promised. If you love an old Maine experience, there is no better place to stay on Peaks Island. The wood, the antiques, the storybook feel, the view, the neighborhood, the location are all perfect. Our son was married at The Inn on Peaks on a Sunday afternoon. What a wonderful weekend! Thank you!

Charming Peaks Island Home for an authentic Island experience.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks in this cottage. If you are an 'antique lover" and want to have an experience of what it might have been like yesteryear on Peaks , this is the vacation rental for you. The best part of this home is the location, because it is central, so is a 10 minute walk to the ferry and the stores, but is only about 15 minutes through a lovely residential area, and you are on the back shore.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and kind, anything that we needed, or questions we had, they immediately responsed. Th rent was quite reasonable for 'in between seasons" . It has a good view of the bay side from the back screened in porch yet was only another short 10-15 minute walk to the back shore (I bet there was a shorter route too) . In May the lilacs and the lovely perrennials were an added feature. We also met some really neat 'Islanders" in the neighborhood.

If you want an authentic Island home, with beadboard walls in their original condition, with a feel for another time, with plenty of antiques, and books lining the walls for avid readers, this would be the house for you. Very cozy.

The perfect Maine experience!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage exceeded our expectations. Not only is it incredibly charming (my seven-year-old described it "like a storybook") but the cottage is well-equipped and very clean. There were six of us in all and we had plenty of room to relax and play. The living room and dining rooms were particularly charming (full Iof interesting treasures, books and puzzles). There is also a large screened-in porch that leads to the backyard, which overlooks a beautiful meadow and the harbor. The neighbors were super-friendly. One even invited us in after we admired her beautiful piano playing. Both the center of town, the ferry, restaurants and the beach are within walking distance of the house. The owners were very accommodating as well while allowing us lots of privacy. On a particularly hot day, they even invited us to use their private beach while they were away in Portland. I am already thinking about returning next year!

A Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5
We spent 4 nights/5 days at this pleasant island cottage. We vacationed as children on the island and knew it well. The house was lovely and clean and well maintained and the kitchen equipped. We loved the dining room for meals and the sreened porch in the back for reading. It was about a 15 minute walk from the ferry. We did not think the water views from the house were as expansive as the photos indicate. The owner was very helpful answering all our questions. We had a nice stay. Thanks!
