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!!"

"I rented this house with some friends for a wedding weekend on Peaks Island the first weekend in October. It was perfect and just what we were looking for in an island cottage. We were able to walk to the beach and also the wedding reception which was at the Trefethen Evergreen Association. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Thank you!"

"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!"
