"This authentic historic home is a perfect place for family and friends to gather. It offers one of the most private cottages on the island! The cottage takes you back in time. The one missing element is a golf cart. Although everything is within walking distance...it is cumbersome for lugging supplies, etc."

"Wonderful sunsets off the back deck. Lobsters and crabs fresh caught right in your backyard. Plenty of room for a Fourth of July family gathering. This house completely as described. Everything you need is there. Owner was great, promptly returned calls, helped out in every way. We hope to return."

"We stayed here in August for a week around a wedding celebration and couldn't have asked for a more ideal house or location. While we live only a short ferry ride away, we felt like we were vacationing in a different world. The house is perfectly located just a 1/2 mile from the ferry in a quiet neighborhood. We didn't bring a car, but just rode bikes back and forth to the "downtown". Our 9 and 12 year old boys loved heading out on biking adventures by themselves which we felt comfortable with, given the slow island traffic. The house itself is a truly charming historic cottage with built-ins and lovely pine floors. It was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all manner of utensils & pans. We spent a lot of time playing games on the wrap around deck with great ocean views. We arrived at the house in the dark and the next morning, upon seeing the sparkling light-filled interior and porch, our nine year old announced "I love this house".
The boys found a rope swing near the ferry which they loved and we spent time running an biking around the island, building cairns on the nearby beach, and dining at the Peaks Island Inn.
The owners could not have been more accommodating from the welcoming note and bubbles for the kids, to a very organized notebook of each appliance in the house and local attractions.
We'll be back, thank you so much!"
