Recent Peaks Island reviews

  • 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. :-)"

  • Enjoyed our stay at the Peaks Island Treehouse

    "The treehouse was a great place to stay! Just a 10 minute walk or 2 minute bike ride from the ferry which was ideal since we arrived at night and also went back and forth to Portland multiple times during our stay, including at night. We had 4 adults and 2 chihuahuas in our group, all of whom were pleased with the Treehouse. Not fancy but clean, comfortable and convenient. We were able to function quite well in terms of what we found at the house for dishes, cookware, bedding, towels, etc. We visited Peaks as daytrippers a year ago as part of a weekend stay in Portland and had liked Peaks so much at that time that we decided to come back and stay on the island for several days. As expected we enjoyed our second visit very much. Plenty of low key, outdoor type activities on the island and very easy to take the ferry over to Portland for dinner, entertainment etc. We rented bikes and a doggie trailer for one of the days we were here, which is the ideal way to get around and explore the island. A car is nearly useless here, really. We also enjoyed taking the ferry back and forth to the city several times as part of our Peaks Island experience. Some might view the ferry as just a necessary hassle but I loved it, especially at night. The city lights are awesome from the top ferry deck! One day we went over to Portland for world class coffee and baked goods in the morning, returned to Peaks for the day then back over to the city for a superb Italian dinner, the finest gelato anywhere and finally the last ferry of the night back to Peaks. It's fascinating to be in a terrific little city with so much to choose from and yet be on an island. Take advantage of this very unique experience! If you are looking for an outdoorsy, fairly non-touristy vacation where you can enjoy the island lifestyle yet have access to a city full of first rate restaurants, cafes, theater, etc, this is it! Peaks Island, Portland and the Treehouse won't disappoint. By the way the ferry service is prompt and efficient, at least in September when we visited. Much more hectic in July and Aug I would imagine."

  • Wonderful home in a perfect location!

    "Our stay at Comstock Cottage was truly one of the best our family has experienced. The house was immaculate when we arrived, well equipped, and spacious. Truly the pictures do not do this vacation rental justice as it is really quite a gem. We enjoyed spending time together, playing board games, reading, strolling to the store for our evening ice cream ritual and just generally being away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life. The bike shop is near by as are options for golf cart rentals. You are close to what you need, but far enough away to enjoy a little tranquility. We were not at all disappointed in our stay. It was just lovely! Highly recommended."

  • Something Old, Something New

    "Sometimes the nostalgia of old mixes beautifully with something new. This is a Peaks Island treasure being one of the oldest island houses. Yet, it has been updated to capture all the needs of a spanking clean, new house. Clean, yes so clean! Beds and linens very comfortable, spacious living area and the perfect porch/deck for morning coffee with a view, or a shady relaxing spot later in the day with Cushing Island in view at all times. Peaks has been a family spot since the late 1950's so here comes the nostalgia! The cottage has a rather steep stairway to the upstairs but without the "trip step" (if you are old enough, you know trip steps were used to warn of intruders!) Personal nostalgia enters my mind; as teenagers rowed to Cushing in a boat we had sunk in the cove overnight to keep it from leaking. Still, we had to bail water all the way over and back. We are long past those days. However, the island still beckons, and the way we enjoyed our stay in this sweet cottage was every bit as pleasing. This is a cottage suitable for people of all ages, and the island is a place for exploring, swimming, learning some civil and WW ll history, and more. We did not turn the TV on so as not to interrupt the charm of island life, but it is there if you want it. Peaks will weave its way into your heart! We have stayed in many cottages over the years, but this one charmed us from the moment we stepped inside. Gwen was available, though we barely needed to call her. She and Randy are fine hosts. We thank them for sharing this treasure with us."
