Short Ferry and Walk to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

The studio was very unique and spacious. Would highly recommend if you're looking for a quick getaway from the city. You might want to consider getting a ride to the house if you prefer not to do the 20min walk.

Beautiful and private, artist home a short walk from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Mark’s house. The grounds were beautiful as well as the unique and detail oriented studio. We love plants and gardens so this was a dream come true when it came to exploring the inside and outside of the home. That side of the island was quiet and felt safe. I have already recommended this place to a friend and plan on returning at some point as well!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location--steps from the waterfront and nestled in the woods. Mark is an amazing host with a stunning property--micro sustainable farm, bees, composting. He even roasts his own coffee and was gracious enough to share it with us. Delicious! Would give ten stars if I could. Thank you Mark for a perfect weekend on Peaks Island.

Great 1st trip to Peaks!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 guys and had an awesome trip to Peaks island! The house was great and had everything you needed! Mark was quick to resolve any issues we had immediately. I would definitely get the golf carts as they were very helpful for us. Again great stay and great house!

The open area living space is comfortably casual and the bedrooms, baths allow privacy to families.

  • 5 of 5

the micro farm gives explorations to children and adults. the setting is secluded and serene. the golf cart a must for easy access to all island adventures. caveat: Minimal number of cars (8-11) on the ferry at one time. most necessities are in place, bring your own shower/bath soap and additional paper towels and napkins. Mark is accessible, friendly and super helpful. a good time had by 11 family members. Grocery store runs out of fresh produce early, ice cream at eh variety store is delicious, no fresh clams to be bought for home preparation only lobster, te cockngull has great crab cakes. enjoy the sea just one quarter mile from the house, go to the sandy beaches, walk the shore, see the gun in placements,. You will be in a clean, maintained house for relaxing.

The house is beautiful! Modern and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful! We felt comfotable asking Mark for information and assistance, when needed. The area is so peaceful. Beach is just a short walk and swimming close by as well. We enjoyed the amenities, like the hot tub and fire pit! We also took advantage of renting a golf cart from Mark, which proved to be very convenient. Definitely interested in returning someday!!
