"This home is a perfect place to stay on Peaks - close to the ferry and the businesses on the island, but feels secluded with a beautiful view of the water from the back porch. The inside is charming, and everything we needed was there, with excellent instructions and lots of info on the area. The hot tub on the back deck looked inviting, but it was unseasonably warm so we did not use it. Just a couple of things to be aware of - as noted in the property description, the 2 bedrooms upstairs are adjoining, so you have to walk through the master to get to the smaller bedroom. (This was not an issue for us as were all family.) Both bedrooms have doors to the master bath upstairs which is huge and beautiful. The double shower with the tile is amazing, but just note that it does not have an enclosure or curtain around it. And if you have any physical limitations, the stairs to the upstairs are a bit steep as is common in older homes. We didn't do any cooking while we were there, but the kitchen was fully equipped and gorgeous also. All-in-all we loved staying there and would love to stay there again!"

"What a beautiful location! The house is perfectly located in a quiet and scenic part of the island. Very low key and friendly people, too. We were lucky to gather here with our 2 sons for a quick family re charge, from our busy professional schedules. We had a nice dinner at the Inn, and also, enjoyed going into Portland for eateries, Sonny's, Empire, and Becky's diner... and The Portland Museum of Art. I would suggest to pay close attention to the ferry schedules, if coming by car, as you have to line up, in the car lane, well in advance of your scheduled passage, because of limited capacity for the cars. Not too bad of a situation, off season. I would caution you on the loft sleeping area, as the access is quite steep, up and down. I would suggest you to bring sheets and towels, for easy departure at the end of your stay.
The bikes did need some attention, so, bring bikes, because, it is an ideal place for riding."

"this place was amazing! Mark, the owner, was so helpful and great. The place was beautiful and peaceful. It was clean and very comfortable. We loved the location. Being on the backshore of the island was relaxing and very nice. Mark answered all of questions and was always there for us! It was a perfect family get away! We hope to return someday and you will be so happy if you stay here! No need for a car. We rode bikes everywhere! The owners grounds were even beautiful to explore and the beach is just a short walk. Wonderful!"

"My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Turtles' Nest cottage. We enjoyed the sunset and ocean views. We loved the beautiful back garden. Adding to it's charm was the occasional visit by a couple of local chickens.
The kitchen appeared well stocked and everything we needed was available. The upstairs beds were comfortable. There was a convenient full bath located on the first level. The family room furniture was very comfortable and there was an assortment of books, dvds, and a few games for relaxing with the family.
The location was close to everything. It was about a 5-10 minute walk to the beaches, restaurants, shops, and grocery stores and just a few more minutes to the ferry.
We would stay at this property again."
