  • A wonderful stay cottage/home with a very quiet neighborhood.

    "My wife and I stayed on this lovely home July 21-29, 2016. The home had everything we needed. Very functional kitchen, 2 great bathrooms. Although the tub upstairs was about 6-8" too high. 2 bedrooms upstairs with comfortable beds. The extra couch which converts to a bed downstairs was an added plus for a quest/grandchildren. Wonderful deck and backyard and so close to town yet, very quiet neighborhood. The owner was accessible if we had questions. My wife and I will definitely rent again."

  • Wonderful house!

    "We just returned from a wonderful week at the Ford House. Ramona and Dan are lovely, responsive hosts and made us feel very welcome. The house is exactly as pictured: nicely decorated, comfortable, clean, cozy, nice linens (optional, for a fee), good beds. You can see the gorgeous seafront, about 1/2 block away, from the front of the house. One nice surprise was that the house, while fairly small, lives much bigger. It has nooks and crannies; even with five people, it was easy to slip away to read or nap or stare at the sea. We enjoyed the fact that it had been John Ford’s house; one night we watched The Quiet Man DVD (provided) on the nice TV. It was cool to be watching it in Ford’s living room! There is a big yard and outdoor seating on decks, a new grill, badminton/volleyball setup, all of which we enjoyed. Peaks Island is absolutely heavenly. A note about logistics: vacationing on an island where everything depends on the ferry required a different sort of planning, but we liked it. We flew to Portland and decided not to rent a car. We took an Uber (there are taxis, too, of course) to the dock, and took the 15-minute ferry to Peaks Island. From the ferry, it is about 8/10 of a mile to the house. You can rent a golf cart for about $25 an hour, or rent a bike, or walk. We walked everywhere, which suited us fine. There is one food market on the island; its stock depends on the ferry too, so it was out of a few items when we arrived Sunday evening, but we managed fine. A day or two later it was fully stocked. Activities also available on the island include sea kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, which I learned is abbreviated SUP, and lots of different beaches. Take the ferry back to Portland and you’ll find dozens of great restaurants and bars within a 5-10 minute walk from the docks. We highly recommend both Peaks Island and the Ford House. We cannot wait to go back."

  • Excellent!

    "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."
