'Evergreen Anchorage' has had many roles over the last century- a 1920's guest house, a tea room and an antique store. One can walk down the garden path to the sandy beach and snug anchorage, ride bikes to the 'Back Shore', with its granite ledges, berry bushes and through the interior wooded dirt roads and winding paths to ponds, glades & old submarine towers. The day starts on the east side morning sun porch and the late afternoons become evening on the western porch while sitting in rockers and watch the sun set over sailboats, ferries and fishing boats working their way through Diamond Island Passage.
The Evergreen Landing Cottages: This quiet eastern end of the island is dotted with small turn-of-the-century cottages sitting on a hillside above what was , 75 years ago, the third ferry landing for the island. Many years ago the dock was taken out in a storm, leaving a sheltered anchorage with several small pleasure boats and a small crescent beach where families gather and kayakers set off to explore the bay. Just past the beach is the eastern end of Peaks Island, tiny Pumpkin Knob, and Hussey Sound, where boats head off from Portland, Falmouth and the islands for down east destinations. Our cottage is on a road above the landing that has turned from pavement into a well-maintained gravel road ending in a dead end. The only traffic is the neighbors and bicyclists/walkers who took a wrong turn going around the island.
Island Activities: Trefethen Landing is a short stroll back toward the ferry landing, where the TEIA offers guest memberships for play on three clay tennis courts. It offers a large dock and extensive anchorage. There is fishing for striped bass on the rugged back shore or for mackerel down front, at the Casco Bay Lines ferry landing; up the hill from the landing one can rent fishing poles or any additional bikes needed. In this village area are four restaurants, gas pumps, a post office, rental moorings, the grocery store, a lobster pound, several small gift and art shops, the library, police station and health center. Cookouts are popular along the shingle beaches or on the granite ledges that make up much of the back shore facing the open Atlantic. Many artists who live and work on the island offer welcome visits to their studios and offer monthly 'art walks.' Kayak rental is also available, but serious kayakers will want to bring their boats and explore the many nearby islands.

- Entry to the house is up a few steps, or a ramp, to a small cedar deck that faces a wooded hillside across the street. A large eastern sun room with an antique round oak dining table, chairs and wicker rocker also serve as the entry porch. The kitchen is well set up, with a lovely large slate sink, a gas stove, full sized refrigerator and a pantry with full laundry. There is a dining room that seats six and a living room with a comfortable couch, armchair and two wooden rockers gathered around a brick fireplace. In fine weather most cottage life takes place on the covered porch, with plenty of old wooden rockers and a dining table with directors chairs....moreless

Peaks Island is a classic Maine summer community where kids can swim, go crabbing, fishing, bicycling, visit the library or the ice cream shop. The cars drive at 20 mph and bicycling is the best way to go on errands to the store, the lobster pound, an artist's studio or a tag sale tour. Portland, a small, quiet city, with wonderful restaurants, bakeries, museums, stores and galleries and a farmers' market is an enjoyable 20 minute ferry ride away.
Other Activities: art walks; tag sales; bicycling; cook-outs on the rocks,kayaking,island tours
