  • Summer Paradise

    "Stayed here for a [too short!] week with my wife and 11 year-old son, along with another couple and their boy, also 11. The house is immaculate, and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The two main bedrooms are bright and airy, with big windows looking out over Casco Bay - it feels like you're on a cruise ship, waking up to the sound of gulls and distant lobster boats. The place is brilliant for kids - the boys just banged out the door in the morning to spend the day with new friends they met down at the ferry dock and casino, where there's a lovely little sand beach and a swimming float. They fished (caught some mackerel), gathered mussels, hunted for sea glass, climbed rocks, swam and explored and came back home when they were hungry. The islanders are very friendly and helpful - upon arrival we were greeted like old friends and lent a golf cart to take our stuff to the house (about a quarter mile or so from the ferry), and invited to the Saturday supper, where we met even more great folks who lent us bicycles for the week and gave us some pointers on what to see and do. The whole place is very laid back, and it feels like happy hour 24/7. We day-tripped to Peaks Island where we rode bikes and had a nice lunch, walked across the sand bar to Great Diamond at low tide (another beautiful island) and took the ferry to Long Island, which has some of the best beaches in Maine, with powdery white sand and clear blue water. Portland is one quick ferry ride away, and we had memorable meals at Eventide (go around the corner to Tomasso's for a drink while you're waiting for your table!), Fore and Boone's; the Standard Bakery has great food, too. For groceries, we used Rosemont Bakery right on Commercial Street just a few steps away from the Casco Bay Ferry terminal. They're very nice folks, and they stock excellent local meat, cheese, beer and produce and can deliver to the island daily (wine too!) so you can phone in your order and never leave the island... Which is a nice option to have. Mostly we just lounged around the house, reading and ambling along the coast, exploring the tide pools and fishing off Crab rock, cooling off with a dip at the beach right in front of the house, then enjoying a cocktail or three on the deck, which provided a postcard-perfect sunset every night. And owner Woody and his wife Doris are fantastic - they answered all our questions and paved the way for an unforgettable vacation!"

  • Slice of heaven

    "My family has been coming here to this home for nearly 10 years. The boys couldn't have imagined summers without being here. Now grown up my husband and I still can't get here enough. The minute we step off the ferry were in heaven. We completely decompress here like no other place. Love the people, love the privacy, sunsets, no thought of time, it's home for us!!! Thank you for sharing S&G"

  • Beautiful home, ideal location.

    "This is the perfect apartment for a quiet and peaceful retreat. It has all basic amenities, extremely clean, and located in a beautiful historic neighborhood. The cafe across the street serves wonderful fresh meals from breakfast to dinner plus there is a market with fresh produce just a couple of blocks away. The owners are very warm and friendly--and the energy in their home is very positive and relaxing. We will definitely stay again."

  • Peg

    "With a picture perfect view of the ocean, tucked away among the trees at the end of a dirt road, this house was a perfect location for our mini family vacation. Our niece's destination wedding brought us to Peak's but we had the added benefit of spending a few extra days at the cottage. The house was spacious with a great kitchen but the best feature was the outdoor shower. Morning coffee on the porch with family and a view of the water through the trees, was heavenly! The new bedroom was fantastic and roomy. The other bedrooms were also spacious, clean and full of character."
