      Start with an idyllic island. Put a fabulous cottage on it near the beach. Add a few wonderful people. Mix in a few gorgeous sunsets, gentle breezes, and fresh seafood dinners. Now you've just concocted the perfect vacation. Your paradise on Peaks Island is a very short walk to the beach (less than a block) and it has an extra large lot for playing in the yard. This beautifully renovated 3 bedroom house (2 rooms with queen sized beds, one with twin bunk beds, and a pull out sofa in living room, max 6 adults) comes with a fantastic front porch for old-fashioned entertaining, and a back deck great for sunning and star gazing. It's an easy walk from the ferry, and to the island's restaurants---unless you decide to enjoy dinner on that large deck out back which is right off the kitchen. And if you want lobster you can get them fresh right next to the ferry landing. Peaks Island is made for relaxing---the limited number of cars make for great walking and biking around the island. On Sunday afternoons during the summer you might enjoy heading over to Reggae Sunday at Jones Landing. Rent bikes and tour the island, or take a tour in a golf cart---our rent a golf cart for the afternoon or week! And the easy ferry ride to Portland makes it fun to have both the quiet of island living and the convenience of an urban fix (the Portland Art Museum is a real gem) and Portland's now known for it's art galleries and its fine dining. You can have it all! If you haven't been to Peaks Island, we know you'll fall in love with it just as we did. If you're already in love, then you understand why we have this special retreat! Please note there is a seven night minimum stay from mid May through September 15th . We cannot accept pets either due to allergies, sorry. Smoking is not allowed. State tax 7%. Linens are not provided. If you prefer to not bring your own, there is a linen service available. This ensures everyone has clean linens upon arrival. Peaks Island is a scenic 20 minute ferry ride from downtown Portland, Maine. The ferry ride begins your transformation from mainland mode to island---relaxation---mode. Suddenly you no longer have to worry about traffic, you become more aware of your senses as you see the sights of Casco Bay, as you feel and smell the cool sea breezes, and when you hear the minute warning blast of the ferry---you'll know you are just about to begin an amazing island experience. Peaks Island is a very popular choice for weddings, with two venues located very close to the ferry. Centennial beach is less than a block from the house and perfect for watching sunsets, or keeping cool on a warm summer day. The island's perimeter road beckons island visitors to bicycle and walk it (or golf cart it) with its abundant ocean views and shore access. If you're an artist, this is a dream location for seascapes! It's great for kids because of the limited number of slow moving vehicles. Drivers expect to be sharing the road. Peak's proximity to Portland make for a great rainy day option, or urban night seen fix. There is year round ferry service with the option to take your car over, or you can also have the ferry ship belongings over and then take the island taxi to the cottage. For more information about the ferry service check out Casco Bay Line's website. For those who choose to bring their car to Peaks, there is parking right at the house. If you decide to leave your car mainland, the city operates a number of convenient garages to the ferry. For more information: (website: hidden)

      The SpaceCozy room in lovely house. Quiet and light. Shared bath & entry. 8 minute walk from ferry landing. Friendly host (please note that I am not at the house from November - April). Peaks Island is a great place to ride a bike, climb on the rocks, picnic, visit Portland for nightlife and great restaurants. Nous parlons francais. Parliamo italiano. Hablo un poquito espanol. Ferry ride from Portland is an idyllic 20 minute cruise. Cars are not really needed out here, and expensive to transport. There is an island taxi, and walking/biking are easy to get around. Peaks Island is an artistic community with old-fashioned entertainment like pancake breakfasts and intimate concerts in the summer. It's much quieter in the fall and winter, so nature is the call then. Information about getting to Peaks Island (EMAIL HIDDEN) The ferry schedule and costs are there. Also you can link to a map of places to park in Portland. There is a garage right at the ferry terminal, but it is often full and rather pricey. Other garages, or some of the open lots, are cheaper. Bikes can be brought over but they cost as much as people to bring. There is a bike rental on the island, which has a loose selection of bikes to rent, I think about $20 a day. (Not sure what months they are open). I usually have one extra bike, sometimes two. If you are planning to go into Portland while you are here, buying a book of 5 round-trip tickets is probably cheaper than buying single tickets, even if you don't use the last one. If you are taking a bus or train to Portland, the taxi from there to the ferry is about $10 plus tip. From the airport it is closer to $20. In the summer, there are 3 restaurants on the island, 4 bars, a grocery store an ice cream shop, and a few gift shops. A couple of art galleries, 3 small museums and lots of places to walk and wander. Some of these businesses close after Labor Day. Leave lots of time to get tickets and park a car if you are coming that way, especially on weekends. I hope that helps! From September - May, booking long-term only. Please contact me before making your reservations so I can give you more details about the house. Other Things to NoteSeptember - May are long-term bookings only.

      The SpaceYou will be staying in a wonderful house on Island Ave--less than one block to Centennial beach, and just a 15 min walk to the ferry and restaurants. You'll be starting with an idyllic island. Now add the fabulous cottage on it near the beach. Add a few wonderful people (maximum 6 adults, but 4 unless there are two young adults who don't mind twin bunk beds.) Mix in a few gorgeous sunsets, gentle breezes, and a couple fresh seafood dinners. Now you've just concocted yourself a perfect vacation. Your paradise on Peaks Island has an extra large lot for playing in the yard. It's an easy walk from the ferry (half mile), and to the island's restaurants---unless you decide to enjoy dinner on the large deck right off the kitchen. This beautifully renovated 3 bedroom, 2 full bath house comes with a fantastic, wide 3 sided porch for old-fashioned entertaining. There's a large kitchen, dining room with a table for six, a rear deck, living room and a cute little sitting porch on the second floor (perfect for two). Peaks Island is made for relaxing---the limited number of cars make for great walking and biking around the island. Or for the experienced kayaker or sailor, Casco Bay's calling you. Or maybe you'll want to rent a golf cart and tour the backshore road in it. It's an easy 20 minute ferry ride to Portland which makes it possible to have both the quiet of island living and the convenience of an urban fix. You can have it all! If you haven't been to Peaks Island, we know you'll fall in love with it as we did. If you're already under the island's spell, then you'll understand why we have this special retreat!

The NeighborhoodWe love Peaks Island because it is a small, vibrant community. People live on Peaks year round and people flock to Peaks to enjoy its seasonal magic. The public access to the shore is a true gem. There's the daily ebb and flow of people from the ferries, and there's the seasonal ebbs and flows. It all makes for a truly special experience. Getting AroundThere is taxi service waiting right at the ferry landing until about 9pm (call ahead otherwise.) And you can rent your own bicycle or golf cart right on the island.

One slot per day for a guest to take an up-to-a three hour bath. Your own mini spa experience.

        The Space1 sunny bedroom with full private bath. Back deck and private entrance. Near boat landing and restaurants. Nicely furnished, 6 steps up to landing. Nous Parlons Français. Parliamo Italiano. Ferry ride from Portland is an idyllic 20 minute cruise. Cars not needed out here, and expensive to transport. There is an island taxi, and walking/biking are easy to get around. Peaks Island is an artistic community with old-fashioned entertainment like pancake breakfasts and intimate concerts in the summer. It's much quieter in the fall and winter, so nature is the call then. Information about getting to Peaks Island is through Casco Bay Lines (email hidden). The ferry schedule and costs are there. Also you can link to a map of places to park in Portland. There is a garage right at the ferry terminal, but it is often full and rather pricey. Other garages, or some of the open lots, are cheaper. Bikes can be brought over but they cost as much as people to bring. There is a bike rental on the island, which has a loose selection of bikes to rent, I think about $20 a day. (Not sure what months they are open). I usually have one extra bike, sometimes two. If you are planning to go into Portland while you are here, buying a book of 5 round-trip tickets is probably cheaper than buying single tickets, even if you don't use the last one. If you are taking a bus or train to Portland, the taxi from there to the ferry is about $10 plus tip. From the airport it is closer to $20. In the summer there are 3 restaurants on the island, 3 bars, a grocery store an ice cream shop, and a few gift shops. A couple of art galleries, 3 small museums and lots of places to walk and wander. Some of these businesses close after Labor Day. Leave lots of time to get tickets and park a car if you are coming that way, especially on weekends. I hope that helps! Please note that from November - April I am not at the house, but have someone who checks in on it. Please contact me before making a reservation for those months so I can give you more information. From September - May, booking long-term only. Please contact me before making your reservations so I can give you more details about the house. Guest AccessWifi in house, private bath. Ask about use of fridge or kitchen. Yard and picnic table available. Beaches 10-15 minutes walk. Interaction with GuestsI will greet you and show you around, give you a map of the island and some things to do. Then I will leave you alone, or we might visit over tea or a drink if you are in the mood. The NeighborhoodPeaks Island is a friendly community, very walkable and bikeable. Busy in the summertime. Portland has great restaurants and activities. Boats run until 11:30 pm most nights so you can enjoy the city too.

          The SpaceIt is a quiet spot with the ocean less than two minutes away. An opportunity to unplug. On the other side of the island (less than one mile away ) there is a small general store and 4 star restaurant. Definitely must be into walking (house is about half a mile uphill from the Ferry). Very few vehicles on island. Guest AccessThe beach is right down the hill, as is access to free wifi at the tiny social hall. Interaction with GuestsWe are often down at the dock for a swim, or in the yard working or reading. Love meeting new people, yet can respect the quiet and peace guests may be looking for. The NeighborhoodEveryone says hi when they walk by. It is quiet and friendly. Getting AroundThe ferry leaves from casco bay lines almost every hour. It is free to leave the island. You park your car in Portland (lot or residential road). The ferry is about 9 dollars round trip. I would most likely meet you at the boat to show you up with a pull cart for your belongings (although often people at dock will offer rides as well)

          The SpaceThe Feathered Nest a tranquil hideaway on Peaks Island, Maine, with a hot tub on the deck and a view of Diamond Passage. It's just an 8-minute walk from the Casco Bay ferry that runs nearly every hour to/from Portland. Guest AccessThe entire cottage will be at your disposal. Around a week before your arrival I will send information about how to access the key. Interaction with GuestsI live in on the mainland in Portland, and am constantly available via email, cell phone call or text. The NeighborhoodEnjoy exploring the island, its shores and its intricate maze of inland pathways. - Just around the block is the beautiful, long Centennial Beach. - For children, the elementary school playground is right across the street. - Walking the back shore is a favorite pass-time. Certain beaches are especially popular for constructing cairns from the well-worn stones. There are several restaurant choices on Peaks. In addition, whether you're a devout "foodie" or just like to eat, the Old Port area of Portland, just a 17-minute ferry ride away, is an epicurian epi-center, boasting many of Maine's top restaurants within walking distance of the ferry terminal. (Go to p(URL HIDDEN) and click on "Dining"). Getting AroundBicycle and foot are the preferred modes of transportation on Peaks. Brad's Bikes has bike rentals (self-service on weekdays). Golf carts can also be rented. There is affordable taxi service - you can even just send your gear and walk the 3/8 miles to the cottage. The speed limit is 25 mph on the entire island. Other Things to NoteThe minimum stay during summer is 7 nights, Sunday-to-Sunday. The rest of the year it is 2 nights (3 nights for holidays). Rates include the State of Maine 8% lodging tax.

          The SpaceSpindrift is the ancient Scottish origin name for spume that whips off the tops of waves at Force 8, "edges of crests begin to break into spindrift, foam blown in streaks" at 34-40 knots windspeed. Mariners knew, by watching the spindrift, when gale force winds had started. And if you’re lucky enough to to be here in a Sou’Easterly gale, you’ll be sheltered by this fine and soundly built contemporary while it sprays onto the panoramic ocean view windows. Spindrift is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath contemporary saltbox with panoramic open Atlantic Ocean views just steps from a classic Maine island granite shore. On a private half acre and facing SE, sunny, cheerful, and just renovated. Away from it all and yet close to fantastic Portland. Smooth granite stones of all sizes form the shore directly in front of the house, and offer up the constant washing sounds of waves. High tide in a breeze, occasional thunderous arrivals. Low tide in a gentle wind, swells pour themselves into fascinating tidal pools. Orientation being South and East, it’s easy to find a sunny private niche among rounded granite stones to picnic with loved ones... Or to simply enjoy solitary meditation, perched on a slab and feeling the wind in your hair, taking in the classic aroma of exposed kelp, and listening to the swooshing and timeless flow of wave after wave. There is nothing like sleeping so close to bold ocean. While the rhythms change with the weather, something visceral and subconscious within us eventually connects with the patterns of the night, the twice daily 8 to 11 foot tides, and stars directly overhead; your pillow is in a fully opening skylight. Reach up, open it, and invite a closer connection, to starry skies without light pollution, to the lights of passing ships on the horizon and the flashes of buoys and lighthouses. Have you ever seen whitecaps under simple starlight? Or the shimmer of a rising moon’s reflection? This house faces East enough so that you will witness truly extraordinary Atlantic sunrises, and watch the ocean change from dark red wine to a burning orange reflection on days with weather, or from blue-black to topaz within an hour or two, on those sparkling days of high summer that the coast of Maine is world famous for. If you find you’ve fallen back asleep, you may be awakened by the unmistakable chuttering of a solo lobsterman’s twice-weekly rounds. Close enough to watch the cold ocean water spurt off the hydraulic windlass, and see how many keepers he gets. Then, because the ocean is deep here, close to shore, and because it is the oceanside outlet of Whitehead Passage, grab the binoculars and enjoy watching all types of watercraft, from schooners to fishermen trolling for mackerel, from the daily and cheery red and yellow Casco Bay Mailboat to extraordinary private yachts of all sizes. Spindrift is ideally located in the most exclusive area of Peaks Island, just far enough onto the Back Shore, as it is called, to feel as though one were on a very remote coast in Maine. Portland, however, famous for its animated, artistic and sophisticated culture, is just around the corner. The Peaks Island ferry runs all day long and well into the evening during the warmer months, dropping you off in the heart of The Old Port, near dozens of restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops and cobblestone streets. In short, the best of both worlds. Fishing, sailing, clay court tennis, fine dining, art galleries... or simply gazing out to sea from the table after a scrumptious lobster and watching the light change, the light that drew so many fine artists to this part of the world, and looking forward to resting your head on that pillow in the skylight, where inspired dreams are nurtured and likely, fulfilled. Guest AccessAccess is to the entire three story house, offering an interesting layout for privacy between parties: the first floor has two bedrooms and a bath. The second is the kitchen, dining, and living areas, while the top floor is devoted to the master suite. The private lot has native balsam, spruce and white paper birch, and open, grassy areas in the one-half acre to provide ample space for children to play or for cooking out. Interaction with GuestsWe have an on-island professional property manager who will handle most inquiries but are happy to provide whatever assistance may be needed beyond her services: Deb Hanna (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) The Neighborhood Spindrift offers access to city life and an island atmosphere...both ways of living; It is so incredible to feel like you’re on a remote island and at any time choose a short golf cart and ferry ride into a very special and approachable small city. Both island and city offer the rare luxury of complete safety, being able to walk, for example, or bike, for miles and miles with no worries. Children of all ages, 3-75, are thrilled by the sense of freedom that Peaks Island offers. Getting AroundPortland International Airport is a 20 minute cab ride away from the ferry. Hourly ferries between Portland and Peaks during warmer months, and some are car ferries. Once "on island," as we say, golf carts can be rented by the day or week, as well as bicycles. Kayaks, too! An on call Water Taxi also serves the area, providing a swift alternative. On the Portland side there exists an excellent modern bus transit system along with, of course, access to taxis. Since the Portland side ferry terminal is so centrally located in Portland's "Old Port District", one rarely needs to walk more than a few hundred yards. If you arrive in Portland by car and want to leave it on the mainland :-) there are several garages within and near the ferry terminal. Other Things to Note"island life" definitely has a different, slower, friendlier pace... enjoy it!

          The SpaceThis beautiful offering is one-half of an owner-occupied duplex, built like a separate house, completely private, with a separate entrance. On the first floor is a living and dining area (with wood stove for chilly nights), and a kitchenette on one end. A large sliding glass door at one end looks into a Japanese garden. The kitchenette is small but well-furnished (no microwave) and has everything one needs to cook summer meals. A bright, open stairway to the second floor offers views through a skylight of the water during the day and stars at night. On clear days, Mount Washington can be seen on the horizon. From the skylight and a small balcony off one of the two bedrooms are stunning sunset views of Portland, Little Diamond and Mackworth islands and Diamond Passage. Many boats, ferries, fishing, and pleasure boats travel between Portland and the islands. There is always something interesting to see. On the second floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. The bathroom has a tub and excellent shower, with tiled floor. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the other a full-size, both with comfortable mattresses (bedding provided), and quilts for cool nights. The bedrooms also both have closets. The house is clean and well cared for with light, polished wood floors throughout. Outdoors is an attractive garden with chairs for enjoying coffee, drinks or meals and taking in the view. The space is perfect for a couple, two couples, a parent (s) with children, or for a solo person wanting a happy, quiet, summer retreat for writing or painting.

Guest AccessGuests will have access to wi fi, 2 beach chairs in shed and sand buckets and toys. We also have a large pack n' play and children's safety gate for stairs should you need it. Interaction with GuestsFeel free to contact us if you have questions. We will most likely not be on the island but we are happy to answer questions and help make your stay the best it can be. The NeighborhoodOur quiet neighbors are far enough away to allow for a real sense of privacy. Most likely the only people you'll see are a few folks out walking or bike riding. Beware, they often stop to admire the garden. About 100 yards up the dirt road is a wooded path that leads to Josiah's Cove. Typically deserted, this rocky cove with breathtaking views is great for kids to explore. Near the ferry there are several good restaurants, an ice cream shop, island grocery store, gift shop, library and small museum. Sandy Beach, 5 minutes from the house by car or 10 minutes by bike, is great for young children and sunbathers alike. The Trefethen Club (tennis, sailing, social events, kids summer camps) offers week long memberships. A Horse Camp on the island offers half day and full day camp for children and teens. Getting AroundYou will need to bring your car over on the Peaks Island Ferry but once you are here, it is possible to get around on bike as the island is only 4 miles around. Bikes can be rented from Brad's Bikes 'down front' or bring you own. Other Things to NoteThe Nutshell does not have cable. There is a TV/DVD player guests are welcome to use. There is also no washer/dryer but there is a nice laundromat near the ferry if you need to do a load of laundry.

            The SpaceThis is a working Permaculture Demonstration Site known as the Island Micro Farm. There is an apartment on the first level with a separate entrance used by the on-site caretaker when he/she is in residence to perform gardening duties, etc. The caretaker is available to assist you with the hot tub, wood stove, fire pit, and provide general information on the island and it's environs. This home on Peaks Island, Maine, provides abundant privacy, yet is within a two minute walk to the back shore of the island and the Gulf of Maine. In fact, this property is in a neighborhood of fine homes completely surrounded by wooded lands protected by conservation easements managed by the Peaks Island Land Preserve. Well off the road and within earshot of the pounding surf, this four-bedroom, two-bath home faces south, allowing the sun to pour in. The large, 12' x 30' deck off the kitchen offers a "tree-house like" environment, perfect for entertaining or just lounging. If you prefer something more intimate, you can relax in the five-passenger Thermospa hot tub on a deck perched on the ledge off the north side of the home. For ferry schedules please consult the Casco Bay Lines website which unfortunately, due to AirBnB's policy, I cannot provide the web site address for. Please do a search for it. Excerpt from Wikipedia ~ Peaks Island is the most populous island in Casco Bay, Maine. It is part of the city of Portland and is approximately 5 km (3 mi) from downtown. The island became a popular summer destination in the late 19th century, when it was known as the Coney Island of Maine, home to hotels, cottages, theaters, and amusement parks. Hollywood film director John Ford was known as "The Mayor of Peaks Island" because of his great affinity for the island. He vacationed there from boyhood through the early 1960s, worked as an usher at the Gem Theater and was a deckhand on the Casco Bay Lines ferries in his youth. Ford's relatives still live on the island. Besides the Gem, which featured famous performers including the Barrymore family, two other summer theaters were located on the island. One, the Pavilion, opened in 1887, is said to be the first summer theater in the country. The Greenwood Garden Amusement Park sported the Greenwood Garden Playhouse. George M. Cohan tried his productions out at the island's theaters before taking them to Broadway. Circa 1908, D.W. Griffith was torn between continuing to appear in plays produced at the island's playhouses as he frequently did or heading to Hollywood. Jean Stapleton's first professional appearance in the summer of 1941 was in a production at Greenwood Garden. Martin Landau also made his professional stage debut in a 1951 production of "Detective Story" at Greenwood Garden where for several seasons he was a resident cast member. Most of the hotels were lost to fires over the years. The Gem Theater was destroyed by fire on Septemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) buildings burned to the ground on June 2, 1936, including the new Union House Hotel. The only original hotel structure remaining on the island is the Avenue House, which has been converted into condominiums. During World War II, the island was home to a large military defense installation, including the largest structure, Battery Steele, which housed two 16 inch (406 mm) guns. When Battery Steele's guns were first tested, windows on the opposite side of the island shattered. Guest AccessPrivate Bedroom Shared Kitchen and Living Room Full Bath Deck Interaction with GuestsI am available as needed whilst in residence. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is quite private but very close (3 minute walk) to the rocky shore, 2.5 miles of which is for use by the public. You can sit on the rocks, picnic, sunbathe, read, meditate, or simply reflect whilst looking out over the Gulf of Maine. Getting AroundGolf carts are legal to drive on the roads of Peaks Island by licensed drivers. I have a "lifted" golf cart available to rent to guests during their stay. A lifted golf cart refers to one modified with better suspension and larger wheels.

The NeighborhoodPeaks Island is a lovely, small (1.25 square mile), unbridged island 3 miles off Portland, Maine's largest city. Every amenity you could want you should find in Portland, with all the scenery & peace you could want on Peaks; it is truly the best of both worlds. PLEASE note: this IS an island, with rather limited options for restaurants/meals and other services; it is much more significantly limited in the off season/winter. If you have any questions or specific needs, please ask. Getting AroundCasco Bay Lines ferry terminal is on the city bus line & is taxi-accessible. Portland has bus & train terminals, car rentals & an airport. Check ferry schedule for departure times to Peaks Island from Casco Bay Lines. A visit to Peaks will require at least some walking. There is a taxi on the island & bikes available for rental. We MIGHT also have a vehicle available for you to drive if you so desire; it depends on our schedules.

After you book, I can send you a link with information about Portland Parking to help; we can also give you very specific advice and directions for parking in Portland. Other Things to NoteThe boat schedule is unforgiving & parking in Portland is ALWAYS a challenge. We CAN provide helpful advice, all nearby parking locations, etc., as we know the secrets well. PLEASE NOTE: bringing your car to Peaks is NOT recommended, due to the high cost & huge time requirements for coming & going.

                Start with an idyllic island. Put a fabulous cottage on it near the beach. Add a few wonderful people. Mix in a few gorgeous sunsets, gentle breezes, and fresh seafood dinners. Now you've just concocted the perfect vacation. Your paradise on Peaks Island is a very short walk to the beach (less than a block) and it has an extra large lot for playing in the yard. This beautifully renovated 3 bedroom house (2 rooms with queen sized beds, one with twin bunk beds, and a pull out sofa in living room, max 6 adults) comes with a fantastic front porch for old-fashioned entertaining, and a back deck great for sunning and star gazing. It's an easy walk from the ferry, and to the island's restaurants---unless you decide to enjoy dinner on that large deck out back which is right off the kitchen. And if you want lobster you can get them fresh right next to the ferry landing. Peaks Island is made for relaxing---the limited number of cars make for great walking and biking around the island. On Sunday afternoons during the summer you might enjoy heading over to Reggae Sunday at Jones Landing. Rent bikes and tour the island, or take a tour in a golf cart---our rent a golf cart for the afternoon or week! And the easy ferry ride to Portland makes it fun to have both the quiet of island living and the convenience of an urban fix (the Portland Art Museum is a real gem) and Portland's now known for it's art galleries and its fine dining.
