Overview

Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Non-smoking Cottage, 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 8 max), 1.5 Baths +outside shower,

THE COTTAGE IS CLOSED FOR THE WINTER MONTHS. PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT THE 2015 SEASON THAT BEGINS IN MAY!

Our spacious but cozy family cottage is located on a quiet shorefront road, just a few yards from the water with an uninterrupted view of Josiah's Cove and then across the sparkling sea 'all the way to Portugal.' It retains the charm of its 100-year history even though we've lovingly restored and equipped it with up-to-date appliances, numerous sky-lights, new mattresses and wireless internet service.

The cottage is perfectly suited for a quiet family holiday. It is not appropriate for large groups or noisy parties. Absolute maximum occupancy is 8.

Please inquire about pets

The top floor includes the master bedroom with water views, double bed, adjoining full bath with clawfoot tub, and a children's bedroom with two twin beds. The main level includes two double bedrooms with a half-bath between, along with the kitchen, dining room and living room.

A brick fireplace defines the cathedral-ceilinged living room. But most guests prefer sitting on the front porch to watch the sun rising at dawn, the lobster boats pulling their traps in the early morning, the sail boats passing all day long and the lights of the giant tankers twinkling in the distance at night.

There is a wonderful outdoor shower at the back of the house.

Peaks Island is a safe and quiet family paradise offering beaches, tennis courts, kayaking, fishing (including from the rocks in front of the cottage) and great walking and bike-riding. Bikes and kayaks are available for rent. And it's all just a 20-minute car ferry ride from the shopping, excellent restaurants, movies and first-class art museum of Portland.

The cottage is normally open from Memorial Day through Columbus Day. Please inquire about early May and late October.

About The Owner

Recently retired, I hope to spend at least a couple of weeks each summer at the Peaks Island cottage. It's the place to which my children and grandchildren cannot wait to return!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1981

Why The Owner chose Peaks Island

We chose Peaks Island because it offered the peace and quiet of a country location only minutes from the restaurants and cultural life of the city of Portland. And we chose our cottage because of its unbeatable ocean view. My mother used to say that gazing out over an expanse of water was good for the soul. She was right.

What makes this cottage unique

Total relaxation and summer family fun the way it used to be.

Peaks Island is a family summer paradise offering beaches, sailing, fishing, tennis and bicycling on safe roads. You'll see very few cars, but will enjoy stunning ocean views as you pedal or walk around the island. Visitors can shop at the local market or lobster shack and enjoy home-made meals on the porch, eat out at one of three restaurants on the island or sample the broad range of fare offered by chefs (some nationally known) in the city of Portland. Car and passenger ferries make the 20-minute crossing back and forth between mainland and island approximately every hour. Guided tours of the island via golf cart are available, and a visit to the museum dedicated to the Fifth Maine Civil War regiment is a must for history buffs.

Great Views, Perfect House

  • 5 of 5
The views of this house were just amazing. We rented this house and the owners other property to use for our bridal party members housing while we got married on the island. It worked out really well. We were a little worried about the handheld shower and outdoor shower option at this house but it all turned out just fine! The bridesmaids and I got ready at this home and took amazing pictures on the porch overlooking the water, just stunning! Thank you for the great rental, it will always hold a special place in my heart!

Perfect Maine vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
Our family (2 adults, 3 children) enjoyed a wonderful week on Peaks Island staying in this delightful, classic Maine cottage. Great location…on a quiet road you feel away from it all…while still an easy, quick bike ride to town. The ocean views from the front porch are truly fantastic. A unique and fun feature of this house is the wonderful outdoor shower. The house is well cared for and has all the amenities for an easy, enjoyable vacation. We hope to be back!
