Peaks Island house description
Our 1857 home is located in a quiet neighborhood on the southern side of Peaks. It has good water views from multiple rooms and from the living room, where two sliding doors open onto a wraparound porch which is ocean-facing. It has three bedrooms and sleeps six people (one queen bedroom and two bedrooms with two twin beds each). There is a full bath on the first floor. It has just been renovated, with refinished wooden floors and fresh paint throughout. Our home is furnished with new area rugs, new beds with allergy encasements and designer cotton bedding, some antique furniture and new appliances (washer/dryer, dishwasher, range, espresso machine). It is one lot removed from the ocean, and so you can smell and hear the surf, and see Cushing and Ram Islands and Whitehead Passage. There is a sizable side yard that is great for kids. It is 0.6 miles to the ferry (a 10 minute walk), and less of a walk to the beach. We are around the corner from another beach which is rocky and great for exploring.
We have a very quiet neighborhood which is primarily owner occupied. We ask that guests keep volume to a minimum in keeping with the spirit of the neighborhood. In addition, we do not permit fireworks of any kind.
Fall foliage season is lovely and we encourage guests to inquire about weeks in September.

Great vacation place!
Great vacation place!
We spent a week in July/August 2012 at Gwen and Randy's cottage and we were very pleased with our stay. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly. They provided all the information we needed as first-time traveleres to Maine (and Peaks Island). They kept in touch the whole time; the communication with them was very easy. The listing description is very accurate, and so are the photos. The cottage itself was very clean and organized. We found everything we needed for comfortable stay. There is lots of books, DVD's and board games at the cottage, for rainy days. Our kids had lots of fun too. There was a kiddie pool with lots of toys in the shed. My two-and-a-half year old loved it! The beaches are within walking distance. You can easily rent bikes to get you around the island; it's lots of fun. Peaks Island is beautiful; perfect for a peaceful family vacation. We will be definitely comming back. Thank you Gwen and Randy!!

About the owner: We are a family with two small children and live in Portland, just a 20 minute ferry ride from Peaks Island. Although we are new to the island, we have quickly fallen in love with it. We are pleased to offer the Peaks experience to you!
Why the Owner Chose Peaks Island:
This is one of the oldest homes on Peaks, with gorgeous water views and a side yard that offers endless possibilities for playing and relaxing. Our neighborhood is peaceful and has more foot traffic than any other kind.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We feel so lucky to enjoy proximity to the ocean - just one lot removed from Whitehead Passage. It's a short walk around the corner to a rocky beach with expansive ocean vistas.
