The perfect getaway house
"So after looking at a ton of houses on VRBO, my friends and I decided on Mark's house on Peak's Island. We are 4 couples, all around 30 years old, looking to just have fun and relax and not spend a ton of money. Mark's house was EXACTLY what we needed!!
First of all I was a bit nervous about staying on an island that is only 4 miles around, thinking we might get bored. However that is not the case. Mark's house location if perfect. It is only 1 mile from the ferry that drops you off at Peak's Island. And it is tucked away so that no matter how loud we seemed to get, we weren't bothering anybody. He is literally a 5min walk to the ocean on the back shore. His house has 4 bedrooms, all with beds plenty big for 2 adults. There are also 2 full bathrooms, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs which is again, ideal for 8 people. He had a bunch of board games (we took full advantage of pictionary), movies, a decent sized tv in the living room, washer/dryer, and a kitchen which had everything that we needed to cook. He even has different spices, a blender, different sized pots and pans, and tools for the barbecue. There is also a hot tub and a golf cart which you can use! Seriously it was a really perfect house. There is also a goldfish pond outside and a fire pit.
We cooked 3 breakfasts and 3 dinners at Mark's house and on 1 day we took the ferry back over to Portland and explored for the day. 1 tip, if you can, try and come to Peak's Island on a Wednesday, you can bring your car over for only $32 round trip! Otherwise Thurs-Sun it is over $80. Still not too bad but definitely more expensive. Overall I would highly recommend Mark's house if you are looking for a getaway where you can relax or party, or both for a really great price."

"This cottage was everything we hoped for..., and more! It is walking distance from the boat so although having a car is nice, it's not necessary. The cottage was clean, well equipped with kitchenware and decorated with functional, comfortable furniture. Bring some good books because you'll want to sit on the porches all day! You can swing on the front side of the house and people watch or sit on the back porch and admirer the beautiful water views. Thanks Trudy and Joe!"
