Guestbook comments from the manager

West of the Moon was one of the most relaxing vacation experiences my family has had to date. We enjoyed our time on Whitehead Street very much and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway, without really going far away at all!

Nice Family Time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely time at West of the Moon! It was so relaxing, yet my 5 year old was never bored. We had a lovely view of the ocean, which was perfect because my little one needed to rest later in the afternoon. It’s close to everything you need. We walked to the ocean and the little town. A few days we rented a golf cart so we could tour the entire island. Do go, you won’t be sorry.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely! Central to everything - the house is quaint with perfect ammenties for a family. The porch and firepit are an added bonus. Owner was extremely helpful to all of our needs. Walking distance from the beach, the coast, and town. Enjoyed renting bikes and a golf cart to see the entire island.

We rented "West of the Moon" as our daughter was married at the Peaks Island Inn...The house was great - comfortable, cozy and so close to the Inn. WIth all the preparations for the wedding, it was wonderful to come back to the house and just relax. Our son and daugher-in-law were with us from Florida and they are expecting our first grandchild in March. We all enjoyed the house so much; we discussed renting the house this summer sometime. Thanks again, it was wonderful.

Lovely, traditional Peak's Island Cottage with modern amenities.

  • 5 of 5

"West O'The Moon" is a traditional Peak's Island Cottage, with the charm of a family home that has been in one family for 100 years, but with updated kitchen and baths providing the conveniences of modern living. Conveniently located just a block from the ocean, we found it perfectly suited our family's needs. Neat and clean... and with a handy laundry and dishwasher on the first floor to help keep it that way. A+++
