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."

"The house is comfortable with a nice open feel, great views of the water, even from the bedrooms. We were treated most mornings to a wonderful variety of sunrises over the water, watching from the porch with a cup of coffee couldn't be a better start for early risers. We kayak, so the water access was important to us and it worked out well. Had some great paddling trips, the one out to and under the stone crib bridge and beyond was especially pleasant and we had several encounters with seals, one very close! There is plenty to do for active people but a feature not to be overlooked is the quiet, peaceful solitude, we greatly enjoyed that as well. John and Karen have done a great job providing a excellent vacation venue for anyone seeking a quiet getaway but with no lack of things to do and see all within easy reach. We hope to return to this wonderful spot and recommend it highly for anyone looking to experience the beauty of costal Maine."

"We had an amazing stay at this house! It had all the amenities we needed and even our 2 year old enjoyed herself the whole time. We hit up the beach every day, and walked to get ice cream almost every night. Besides being close to Crescent Beach, it was also a short drive to Two Lights and Fort Williams Park (and the Bite into Maine food truck- best lobster rolls ever!) Driving into Portland was a breeze too, so whether you want the quiet of the ocean or the food and shopping of the city, this house is in the perfect location!
The only slight issue we had was the strong smell of moth balls when we got there. Open windows and moving the box of moth balls quickly cleared the smell."

"Beautiful view onto the water from all sides of the house's expansive windows. Lovely and well-maintained house with deck on 2 sides and dock in the back. Very comfortable beds, woke up every morning to a breathtaking scene of the ocean. About 15 minutes to Brunswick and shopping, and 25 minutes to public beach. Lots of nature preserves in the area, Portland about 30 minutes driving distance. Ideal! Thank you so much, Amy and Dan, for a trip we will never forget!"
