The beauty of Peaks
"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 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!"

"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!"

"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."
