Address: 274 Island Ave., Peaks Island, Maine 04108, USA
The Feathered Nest is a tranquil hideaway on Peaks Island, Maine, with a view of Diamond Passage. It's just an 8-minute walk from the Casco Bay ferry to/from Portland, and the beautiful, long Centennial Beach is just around the corner. Peaks Island offers boating, walking, bicycling, picnicking, birdwatching, plus some nice restaurants. There are several nice sandy beaches. Portland is convenient for entertainment and shopping.
Wraparound porch! If you're like us, you'll spend most of your waking hours on the spacious front deck - at the picnic table or in the generous hot tub - watching the birds (birders, ask for a list), the deer, and the boats go by. The living room has windows galore. Even when you're indoors you'll feel as if you're outdoors. If it gets chilly there's a wood stove to keep you cozy (oil heat, too).
The dining room has sliders to the deck - so you won't miss any of the action. The modern kitchen is well-equipped, including a convection oven (we love to cook!) and a dishwasher (who wants to wash dishes on vacation?!) there's a Weber grill on the porch.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is spacious with great windows and views. It has a queen size bed and a washer/dryer right at hand. The guest bedroom, which adjoins the master bedroom, has a double bed. Both beds have high quality mattresses so you can count on waking up refreshed. Plus, for overflow guests, the sofa is mattress quality (twin size). The sumptuous upstairs bathroom has a double shower to die for! It's made of beautiful hand-painted Talavera tile from Mexico. And, for those chilly mornings, the tiled floor has built-in heat! A half bath is conveniently located on the main floor.
PLEASE NOTE: In July and August all rentals are for a 6-night minimum (the 7th night is free).
