Beautiful cottage with its own boat dock and mooring – located towards the quiet end of the island and close to the island beach. This cottage has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed and a sleeping loft which has 2 - full size beds. The kitchen has all new appliances. Located off to the side of the kitchen area is a set of French doors that will take you out onto a secluded deck with awning and a breathtaking view of the ocean and spectacular sunsets at night. The bathroom has been newly updated to include a walk-in shower stall and a washer/dryer unit. The main part of the house is open with dining area and a gorgeous seating area where you can kick off your shoes and enjoy the view or watch a little TV. The yard has been beautifully fenced off and has a stone patio with fire pit and Adirondack chairs overlooking “Diamond Passage’”. This property also has its own 30ft private dock where you can sit and relax or play and swim.
There is hourly ferry service to and from the island that will accommodate your vehicle if you decide you need one. Once you arrive on the island it is a whole new way to enjoy life such as having your own lobster bake with fresh Maine lobsters, biking, swimming, kayaking, hiking, or just take a walk around the island. There is shopping in the unique island shops, stop for an ice cream or go to dinner at one of the fine restaurants the island has to offer or hop the ferry back to the mainland and experience all that the Old Port area of Portland has to offer. This is the perfect spot to relax and find yourself again.

We rented the cottage for our son's wedding on Peaks Island, and it met and surpassed all of our expectations. I loved the amenities, the dock, porch, and loft. The house was supplied well including spices. I would highly recommend this cottage and hope to rent it in the future.
The week flew by ....the never-ending boat/ferry parade and spectacular sunsets make a wonderful backdrop for a Peaks Island vacation in this charming cottage. If you have a boat ... The dock is first class with deep-water access except at the lowest ebb tide. Casco Bay is a boater's paradise.
We sincerely enjoyed our stay on Peaks Island at this water front property! The cottage is very nice, inside and out. Tim takes good care of it, and makes sure he had done everything he could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. I was very surprised at the items that he had stocked into the cottage. We liked the porch, the kitchen/bath/bedroom, the yard and fire-pit, the dock, everything about the property was great. The dock was my favorite part. Our vacation week was very hot temperatures up well into the 90s. But if you were hanging at the dock, the breezes off the water looking into the sun, you were very comfortable. The temps are probably 10-15 degrees less on the dock. The dock faces north west, so there is always Island breezes on the dock. And if I did start to heat up, I just jumped into the water for a cool down. And there is occasional Ferry traffic passing by out in the channel. As for the Island itself, there is quite a bit more to this island than just the shore line. We rented a golf cart for one day to tour the island, which I strongly suggest. Our initial interest in staying at this property started with the boat dock. We did not bring a vehicle across on the Ferry, but instead transported all our vacation items with our boat. We occasionally used the bicycles that are stored at the cottage to go to town (it's about 1.4 miles from the cottage to the Ferry station), but other than that, we used our boat to explore the many restaurants within the Casco Bay area. The island has three restaurants, which we had tried all three. We also visited Diamond Cove twice (Diamond's Edge Restaurant and the Inn at Diamond Cove), Dolphins on Harpswell, and Cook's on Bailey Island (~1.5 hours by car, but only took us 20 minutes by boat). As well as the DiMillo's floating restaurant in Portland and the Saltwater Grill in South Portland (all accessible by boat). We had a great time!
This cottage has all you need and nothing you don't! The cottage is well equipped and comfortable! The yard is perfect for enjoying the day, evening, and sunset! The dock is awesome for the boat for sunbathing and for swimming! The location is quiet and just perfect! We will be back!!
We had a great time. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed. The location on the water was great and we really enjoyed the sunsets over Little Diamond island.
What a beautiful location! The house is perfectly located in a quiet and scenic part of the island. Very low key and friendly people, too. We were lucky to gather here with our 2 sons for a quick family re charge, from our busy professional schedules. We had a nice dinner at the Inn, and also, enjoyed going into Portland for eateries, Sonny's, Empire, and Becky's diner... and The Portland Museum of Art. I would suggest to pay close attention to the ferry schedules, if coming by car, as you have to line up, in the car lane, well in advance of your scheduled passage, because of limited capacity for the cars. Not too bad of a situation, off season. I would caution you on the loft sleeping area, as the access is quite steep, up and down. I would suggest you to bring sheets and towels, for easy departure at the end of your stay.
The bikes did need some attention, so, bring bikes, because, it is an ideal place for riding.
