  • You MUST go to this lovely home!

    "We had a wonderful time at the ocean home called Cindy's Place. The location was fantastic we took full advantage of the private beach every day. We went on our daily sea glass hunt and had wonderful results. The Kitchen was primo, we cooked a large family dinner and the appliances were great. The living room has the perfect set up for conversation, as well as enjoying the amazing view. I would visit again in a heartbeat! The homeowner checked in with us on our first day to make sure everything was okay. Great customer service, which I admire since I am in the customer service business. :-)"

  • Peaks Perfection

    "We had been coming to Peaks for years to visit friends. Both families have since grown and we knew that sharing a house was not going to work. We rented Sue and Bob's amazing home. Our friends were able to visit and we could host dinner get-togethers. Meanwhile the kids enjoyed the rope swing, spacious backyard and open floor plan. We really loved the house and hope to stay there again in the future. Thank you for the warm welcome and wonderful experience!"

  • 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."

  • 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."
