"My three generation family just returned from a wonderful week on Peaks Island at this beautiful, comfortable home. It's a private, quiet space that has room for some to sit and read quietly on the deck while bird watching and for some to kick a soccer ball around on the open grounds. We biked and walked everywhere from the beach to the tennis courts. Jean and Ralph are wonderful hosts who are helpful when needed. My grandchildren call it our summer stay house, and we can't wait to return."

"My husband and I came to Maine for our 25th Anniversary. We stayed in Boothbay Harbor for 1 night and did the whale watching which was great but the real treat was staying here at Osprey's Nest! The view is out of a movie. It is so great to see the lobster boats and sail boats coming in and out of the harbor. One morning we even got to see the Bald Eagle sailing above us! There are so many sites to see in this area. Go to Giant's Stairs at Bailey's Island and eat at the Giant's Stairs dinner. Great fish sandwich with home made onion rings! Dolphin Marina and Restaurant is a great place for a nice dinner with an amazing sunset! Lobster stew is really good too. And also buy your lobster right here at Watson's to make a great dinner at this amazing place that we cant wait to come back too! If you're second guessing where to stay? This is your place!"

"This was a great house. Our family of 5 adults and 1 baby stayed there for 7 days from Sept. 10 thru Sept. 17 and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the house and the location. It was perfect for us. The owners were very friendly, very organized and very accommodating, and as other reviews have said, thought of everything. They even had plenty of coat hangers in the closets, which doesn’t seem like a big deal but it is if all your clothes are in suitcases and you want to hang them up! The house was immaculate and spacious. The three bedrooms were very large and airy, as were all the rooms in the house. Perfect house for anyone."

"I rented Tim's amazing home for my boyfriend's birthday to give us a little R&R after a very busy summer. I couldn't have chosen better!
The house is about 1.5 miles from "town" so was very quite and peaceful, but still convenient for going out to dinner, grabbing groceries, and getting to and from the ferry. We enjoyed the porch, dock, and living area for many hours of lounging and reading. The sunsets were particularly beautiful from the dock. The cottage was equipped with anything we needed to cook meals (which we did most of the time!) and a comfy bed very good nights rest.
Best of all, it only took us about 2.5 hours to get to the house from Boston, but you felt very far away from everyday life. I would recommend leaving your car in Portland (there are a couple $10 per day lots) and taking advantage for the taxi and bike that Tim so gratefully provides. Can't wait till out next visit!"
