Portland and Casco Bay Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 0-4)

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.

Beautiful and a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Good Times on Peaks Island!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Simply... perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Peaks Island is delightful enough... but this cottage is icing on the cake (five stars only because there aren't more). Our original plans included the possibility of some side-trips to the mainland but once we settled into the rhythm of Peaks Island - and this cottage in particular - that idea quickly faded. Bring a few good reads, some of your favorite wines/snacks, bikes and/or running shoes, (a laptop if you can't be without it), and plan to relax. This cottage and its spectacular setting do all the rest. (Just a heads-up if you are thinking about taking a car back-and-forth to the mainland DURING your stay: be sure to consider the ferry schedule. The weekday PM car-ferry times back to PI in the OFF-season are more limited than passenger-only times. Walking shoes and a backpack or market bag are all you really need to spend the day in Portland. If you must.) We did eat at two island restaurants - both of them were enjoyable and provided nice opportunities to meet some Peak's Islanders and other mid-September visitors. We are already thinking about finding time return to this wonderful cottage. As the owner says, it is "a slice of heaven". Thank you, Tim, for sharing it.

We look forward to returning to Peaks Island

  • 5 of 5

This was one of those rare experiences that greatly exceeded our expectations. The house was very clean and comfortable, easily accommodating two adults and two pre-teens. We thoroughly enjoyed the private dock and deck overlooking the bay. The grill was a nice touch and allowed us to avoid having to go to the mainland for dinner. (The restaurants on Peaks Island - with the exception of Milly's Skillet - were not spectacular.) We highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay on Peaks Island and look forward to our return.

Idyllic week on peaks

  • 5 of 5

i was searching for a place to spend a week with my twenty something son that would be perfect for us both, and this cottage did not let us down! The location just out of town was a lovely bike ride away, the dock was perfect for reading (me) and jumping off (him). A perfect spot for two guests (and a dog) with a small beach down the road, friendly neighbors, and a screened deck with views made for morning coffee and evening wine. Loved every minute.
