  • Spotless, modern apartment in great location

    "Our 3-night stay with Christopher & Katie was perfect. The location on Munjoy Hill is within walking distance of the Old Port, the ferry to Peaks Island, and all shopping and dining areas. The apartment is compact with an amazing use of space. Clean and bright with everything you need. Highly recommended!"

  • Great place!

    "Can't beat it! Great spot, great views, and everything you need in the apt. We had a family of 4 and had plenty of room (sofa sleepers were really comfortable). Would highly recommend breakfast from Standard Bakery or Rosemont Bakery, and lunch or dinner at Flatbread. Be sure to stop by George Anderson's art gallery on the corner - he's incredibly friendly and has some great paintings & prints! We would stay at this place again in a heartbeat (even with all those stairs)!"

  • 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."

  • Just what we needed

    "For several reasons, our family converged in Portland for Christmas. It isn't easy being away from home at Christmas but this was the perfect abode for us to enjoy the holiday week together. We slept well -- and in comfort. We cooked, laughed, talked and walked and it always felt good and natural to come "home" to this house after an outing. We were warm and cozy, never needing to turn up the thermostat or start up the wood stove. The home is immaculate -- much appreciated -- and we had everything we needed, thanks to the many thoughtful amenities provided. It is a beautiful home in a perfect location and you couldn't ask for a friendlier or more accommodating host than Lee. His go-to property manager Kiara was very helpful to us in answering questions as we got settled in. Our thanks to you, Lee, for this important and wonderful family time in your lovely home. It is already a treasured memory for us."
