"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."

"Thank you for having us! We really enjoyed our stay at 'Turtles Nest'. We loved sitting on the 2nd floor porch and admiring the water view, and we were also happy to find a lovely garden in the backyard.
Also, we loved that this house actually had working wifi & cable! We've stayed on Peaks before and found that other houses are less connected than this one. It was especially appreciated because we had one day of rain and were glad to be able to relax and watch TV!
The house is ~12 min walk from the ferry and just a few minutes to the island general store, so it's feasible without a car."

A Wonderful place to spend a 50th Anniversary Celebration!
"We rented this home for a week long celebration of my brother's 50th anniversary. It could not have been more perfect! At any given time there were 15-20 of us at the home and yet we never lacked privacy! The location was picture perfect and the home itself provided all of the comforts that we were looking for! It was very well stocked in the kitchen especially and had more than enough staples that one should really check out the inventory before you go shopping!
I know one review mentioned that the house seemed worn...yes it is lived in but certainly not run down...This is a New England home on the water so yes it is not pristine....but if you are looking for a relaxing vacation this is the place for you! The beds were comfortable and having individual bathrooms was a joy in itself! The caretaker Mark was very accessible and stopped by several times throughout the week to check on us! He was also gracious enough to recommend a local caterer that helped us to plan a memorable anniversary celebration at The Brunswick Inn in nearby Brunswick...Check out the review on Trip Advisor!
Overall the week could not have been more perfect...the setting, the house, the weather and the company! Thank you for sharing this incredible house with us! It was a vacation that we will never forget!"

"Our family of six had a fabulous time at this lovely cottage. The location of the cottage was private and the views were spectacular. The house is sturdy and spacious. We could not have asked for more. The fellas hit golf balls into the bay at low tide and the rest of us had a blast looking for them before the water came in. We made day excursions to Georgetown Pottery and Popham Beach and fort (so special!) -- but mostly we loved to sit on the porch or in the comfortable adirondack chairs on the grass, and talk and laugh. We liked Frank enormously -- he was available to answer questions anytime but never hovered. We recommend this cottage without reservation -- you can't find a nicer place in Maine. I am going to hear the waves lapping in the shore of my dreams all year."
