Peaks Island cottage description

We are redecorating!
For guests who have come in past years we wanted to share with you and new guests that we are redecorating the downstairs. We have painted the living room and dining room to lighten the interior. We are also replacing and editing furniture and decorative items. We try to balance the need for updating the cottage while maintaining 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.
