"Oh those bay breezes! We had a lovely stay here and could easily explore Portland on foot, which we so appreciated. Connie provided good recommendations and we really enjoyed visiting the Art Museum and discovering how vibrant and fun this city can be. Very pleasant and thanks again!"

"We had a very nice time at the Orr's Cottage. Beautiful area, and a 45 minute drive to Portland where we had amazing meals every night. We had lunch every day down the road at Morse's Cribstone Grille where we had the best lobster rolls we've ever had - and killer cocktails as well.
The cottage was clean, roomy and very well stocked up with kitchen items, towels, pillows, linens, lawn chairs, games, puzzles, etc. Beautiful kitchen! Had we been there longer and weren't so set on so many Portland restaurants I would have cooked a few meals there. The hard water was not a big deal at all. I grew up with well water and just because it has a mineral smell to it (smells like pennies a little) doesn't mean it's dirty. In fact, my skin and hair felt better from the water there than after showering at home in Boston city water.
The house was a little musty smelling when we arrived but as soon as we opened windows and turned on fans it was fine. It's a humid area so maybe the house would benefit from a dehumidifier in between guests when the windows are closed.
There is no longer satellite TV, just an Amazon Firestick so you can access Netflix and Hulu. It was a little hard to use and would freeze during movies sometimes. The WIFI worked great though.
The Orr's and Bailey's Island area is stunning and offers ample hiking trails and walks (Cliff Walk, Devil's Back, Giant's Stairs and Bowdoin Coastal Studies center are all highly recommended). Everywhere was dog friendly and our pup could be off leash the entire time. We saw blue herons and deer in the yard, and heard owls at night. Overall a perfect vacation. We hope to return to the same cottage next year."

"My wife and I had been to Peaks Island for a day trip when our boys were younger and always said we would like to come back. Well the boys are grown now with significant others and one grandson and we spent a week on Peaks Island that was wonderful. The house and the owners only added to the great time we had. The house was all that the description and pictures said it was. The deck looking over the ocean will wake you up in the morning and put you to sleep at night. We really missed it when we left. The last night my wife and I were going to the Inn for dinner and the major decision we had to make was to either walk or ride our bikes."

"This rental was great for my family of four. We had all of the comforts of home and reasonable driving distance to everything we wanted to see. All of the necessities were provided for us including a washer and dryer! It was very close to Cedar Beach and so peaceful and quiet."
