Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
6 bedroom, 3 bathroom with direct beach access
Quaint 1880 shingle-style cottage located on the western side of Cushing's Island, in Casco Bay. The house is just steps away from Little Beach, with sweeping views of the cove and Casco Bay. Listen to the waves lapping on the beach from the front porch. There are 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, LR, DR, kitchen, and a screened-in porch. The house rental rate allows up to 10 guests.
Cushing's Island is a small privately-owned island in Casco Bay with extensive carriage roads and walking paths through the picturesque landscape. Islanders enjoy walking, birding, swimming, sunbathing, tennis, fishing, kayaking, sailing, and or you can just relax on the porch and watch the ever-changing parade of water craft, clouds, and sunsets. There are no cars, stores, or restaurants on the island. The caretaker drives the only vehicle. Regular (private) ferry service leaves from the Portland waterfront from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so if desired, you can go off-island for a day of shopping and sight-seeing. Cushing's Island is a great setting for quiet family vacation - removed from the hustle and bustle and yet just minutes from Portland.
