  • 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."

  • Clean, convenient and fun

    "Corey was a great host. The apartment on the eastside of Portland was clean and convenient to many restaurants, the ocean, and breweries. We walked to Maine mead, Ox Bow tasting room, Rising Tide and others. It's a quick $5 cab ride to Old Port. Corey went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time, including inviting us to hang with other guests at her sunset firepit. Definitely worth it."
