Peaks Island House Rental Photos and Description
Our 1857 home is located in a quiet neighborhood on the southern side of Peaks. It has good water views from multiple rooms and from the living room, where two sliding doors open onto a wraparound porch which is ocean-facing. It has three bedrooms and sleeps six people (one queen bedroom and two bedrooms with two twin beds each). There is a full bath on the first floor. It has just been renovated, with refinished wooden floors and fresh paint throughout. Our home is furnished with new area rugs, new beds with allergy encasements and designer cotton bedding, some antique furniture and new appliances (washer/dryer, dishwasher, range, espresso machine). It is one lot removed from the ocean, and so you can smell and hear the surf, and see Cushing and Ram Islands and Whitehead Passage. There is a sizable side yard that is great for kids. It is 0.6 miles to the ferry (a 10 minute walk), and less of a walk to the beach. We are around the corner from another beach which is rocky and great for exploring.
We have a very quiet neighborhood which is primarily owner occupied. We ask that guests keep volume to a minimum in keeping with the spirit of the neighborhood. In addition, we do not permit fireworks of any kind.
Fall foliage season is lovely and we encourage guests to inquire about weeks in September.

About Gwen Creswell
We are a family with two small children and live in Portland, just a 20 minute ferry ride from Peaks Island. Although we are new to the island, we have quickly fallen in love with it. We are pleased to offer the Peaks experience to you!
Gwen Creswell purchased this house in 2012
Why Gwen Creswell chose Peaks Island
This is one of the oldest homes on Peaks, with gorgeous water views and a side yard that offers endless possibilities for playing and relaxing. Our neighborhood is peaceful and has more foot traffic than any other kind.
What makes this house unique
We feel so lucky to enjoy proximity to the ocean - just one lot removed from Whitehead Passage. It's a short walk around the corner to a rocky beach with expansive ocean vistas.
