Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We would like to welcome you to our traditional Maine cottage. A cottage with contemporary comforts within the heritage and charm of our much loved family cottage, which is over 100 years young.

Within this charming cottage we have added WiFi, cable, new mattresses and painted breadboard downstairs and upstairs.

This is a home for vacation living in comfort. We are truly on the peak of Peaks Is.

Morning coffee is best enjoyed on the sunny front porch where you can welcome the day and say hello to the neighbors. However end of day wine should be savored on the screened porch in the late afternoon watching the sunset It is from the screened porch, as well as the house that one has breath taking views of Portland, Portland Harbor, other islands and on a clear day Mt. Washington.

The cottage faces west so the view each evening is of the sunset, sometimes turning the land and water to rose sometimes to gold.

We have a large eat in kitchen, a dining room and a living room, with lots of book shelves filled with choices to meet everyone's interest. The first floor bathroom has a claw foot tub and is off the kitchen.

Up-stairs are three bedrooms, one master, one double bed and third with twin beds.The full bath with a shower is off the master bedroom.

Our cottage is a ten minute walk from the ferry and the island shops and library. It is a few houses from the school yard, which has a playground and basketball court. It is also only a short walk, or bike ride, to the island clubhouse for children's camp, tennis or sailing.

We also have a good sized yard for playing ball.

This is the perfect family vacation spot.

The big house

  • 5 of 5

My FAMILY CALL THIS THE BIG HOUSE ,BE CAUSE I RENTED TWO COTTAGES.

MY GRANDSON AND HIS WIFE AND THEIR TWO CHILDREN STAY IN THIS ONE, .

A OLD HOUSE WITH SO MUCH CHARM.

JEAN WAS A DELIGHT, I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO MEET JOHN, BUT DID GET TO WAVE GOOD BYE.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO PEAKS ISLAND YOU NEED TO CALL THESE PEOPLE.

THEY LET US CHECK IN EARLIER AND LEAVE A LITTLE LATER , SUCH NICE FOLKS.

THIE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO BRING IS YOUR CLOTHES, AND YOUR BEDDING, THAT WAS THE ONLY THING THAT WAS MISSING.

LOVELY SPOT FOR A WEDDING WHICH IS WHY WERE THERE, GREAT PLACES TO DINE AND A LITTLE STORE THAT HAS EVERYTHING YOU MIGHT NEED. LOVED IT A WONDERFUL WEEK, MAYBE YOU NEED TO RENT FOR TWO WEEKS.

THANKS JEAN AND JOHN. ANN MARIE JORDAN WEEKI WACHEE FL.

I want to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a bit of a trip back in time structurally, but very comfortable and homey. The view

of Casco Bay is stupendous. You can choose to relax and enjoy it from the screened porch,

from the dining room, or from the lush back yard. A short walk to town brings you to bike rentals,

restaurants, the ice cream store, or kayak rentals. Take the ferry back to Portland for lots of shopping,

sailing, museums and other pleasures within walking distance. Peaks Island itself is rich with natural beauty and

eco-adventure. Bring your camera and binoculars! I'm looking forward to staying here again.
