Recent Peaks Island reviews

  • Very happy

    "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."

  • Great family vacation at the perfect cottage on Peaks!

    "My family and I just spent the most amazing vacation on Peaks and this cottage was terrific! The owners Jean and John were so helpful and friendly, answering all our questions before and during our stay at their charming, comfortable cottage. It is perfectly and conveniently located about a ten minute walk from the grocery store, post office, ferry, stores and restaurants on Peaks. It's only about a two minute walk to the beach too. The cottage was very clean and completely equipped with everything our family needed during our stay, including a barbecue that we used many times. The rooms are all nicely decorated with many family photos and mementos. There's also a large screened in porch on the back of the house where we enjoyed many meals. It's also the perfect spot in the house to watch the lovely sunsets each night over Casco Bay. The lilac bush at the front of the cottage was in full bloom so we cut fresh flowers and put them all over the house so we could enjoy that lovely scent all week. There are also games, puzzles and playing cards there which we used all week. This cottage certainly was full of "sunshine and laughter" the entire week we were there and we won't stay anywhere else when we return to Peaks! Thanks Jean and John!!"

    "We rented the house, and since the beginning I felt really good about it Wendy Marsden treated me like family and open the doors of her beautiful house on the Island. The house had everything that we needed and more for the stayed, I can wait to go back!!!"

  • The Perfect Spot

    "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!"
