Owner info

Year Purchased: 1966

About the owner: This has been Russ & Shirley's home since 1969. We raised our four children here. It began as a summer cottage and has long since become our year round home. We are both now retired and spend our summers in the Willard Beach area in South Portland where we take care of our granddaughter, Aminah. We had previously considered selling our property but due to our great success with VRBO we have taken it off the market.

Why the Owner Chose Peaks Island:
Location, Location, Location, Only a 15 minute Ferry ride from Portland, Peaks Island is frequently refered to as the 'Martha's Vinyard' of Casco Bay only friendlier. We believe we live on the best part of the Island. We are away from the hustle and bustle of down front and from the traffic on the back shore and we are only steps from the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If you are fortunate enough to spend a night on an island, then you are fortunate enough.
