Peaks Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We would like to welcome you to our traditional Maine cottage. A cottage with contemporary comforts within the heritage and charm of our much loved family cottage, which is over 100 years young.

Within this charming cottage we have added WiFi, cable, new mattresses and painted breadboard downstairs and upstairs.

This is a home for vacation living in comfort. We are truly on the peak of Peaks Is.

Morning coffee is best enjoyed on the sunny front porch where you can welcome the day and say hello to the neighbors. However end of day wine should be savored on the screened porch in the late afternoon watching the sunset It is from the screened porch, as well as the house that one has breath taking views of Portland, Portland Harbor, other islands and on a clear day Mt. Washington.

The cottage faces west so the view each evening is of the sunset, sometimes turning the land and water to rose sometimes to gold.

We have a large eat in kitchen, a dining room and a living room, with lots of book shelves filled with choices to meet everyone's interest. The first floor bathroom has a claw foot tub and is off the kitchen.

Up-stairs are three bedrooms, one master, one double bed and third with twin beds.The full bath with a shower is off the master bedroom.

Our cottage is a ten minute walk from the ferry and the island shops and library. It is a few houses from the school yard, which has a playground and basketball court. It is also only a short walk, or bike ride, to the island clubhouse for children's camp, tennis or sailing.

We also have a good sized yard for playing ball.

This is the perfect family vacation spot.

I want to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a bit of a trip back in time structurally, but very comfortable and homey. The view

of Casco Bay is stupendous. You can choose to relax and enjoy it from the screened porch,

from the dining room, or from the lush back yard. A short walk to town brings you to bike rentals,

restaurants, the ice cream store, or kayak rentals. Take the ferry back to Portland for lots of shopping,

sailing, museums and other pleasures within walking distance. Peaks Island itself is rich with natural beauty and

eco-adventure. Bring your camera and binoculars! I'm looking forward to staying here again.

Lovely, Rustic Island Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, rustic Peaks Island cottage - perfect for our trip to the island for a family wedding. Spacious and sweet, with a relaxing atmosphere and nice far water view. From the moment you enter the cottage, you feel like you have come home to a family space.

Great family vacation at the perfect cottage on Peaks!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent the most amazing vacation on Peaks and this cottage was terrific! The owners Jean and John were so helpful and friendly, answering all our questions before and during our stay at their charming, comfortable cottage.

It is perfectly and conveniently located about a ten minute walk from the grocery store, post office, ferry, stores and restaurants on Peaks. It's only about a two minute walk to the beach too.

The cottage was very clean and completely equipped with everything our family needed during our stay, including a barbecue that we used many times. The rooms are all nicely decorated with many family photos and mementos. There's also a large screened in porch on the back of the house where we enjoyed many meals. It's also the perfect spot in the house to watch the lovely sunsets each night over Casco Bay.

The lilac bush at the front of the cottage was in full bloom so we cut fresh flowers and put them all over the house so we could enjoy that lovely scent all week.

There are also games, puzzles and playing cards there which we used all week.

This cottage certainly was full of "sunshine and laughter" the entire week we were there and we won't stay anywhere else when we return to Peaks!

Thanks Jean and John!!

Perfectly "Peaks"

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is everything that has been promised. If you love an old Maine experience, there is no better place to stay on Peaks Island. The wood, the antiques, the storybook feel, the view, the neighborhood, the location are all perfect. Our son was married at The Inn on Peaks on a Sunday afternoon. What a wonderful weekend! Thank you!

Charming Peaks Island Home for an authentic Island experience.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks in this cottage. If you are an 'antique lover" and want to have an experience of what it might have been like yesteryear on Peaks , this is the vacation rental for you. The best part of this home is the location, because it is central, so is a 10 minute walk to the ferry and the stores, but is only about 15 minutes through a lovely residential area, and you are on the back shore.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and kind, anything that we needed, or questions we had, they immediately responsed. Th rent was quite reasonable for 'in between seasons" . It has a good view of the bay side from the back screened in porch yet was only another short 10-15 minute walk to the back shore (I bet there was a shorter route too) . In May the lilacs and the lovely perrennials were an added feature. We also met some really neat 'Islanders" in the neighborhood.

If you want an authentic Island home, with beadboard walls in their original condition, with a feel for another time, with plenty of antiques, and books lining the walls for avid readers, this would be the house for you. Very cozy.
