Property Description

Address: 274 Island Ave., Peaks Island, Maine 04108, USA

The Feathered Nest is a tranquil hideaway on Peaks Island, Maine, with a view of Diamond Passage. It's just an 8-minute walk from the Casco Bay ferry to/from Portland, and the beautiful, long Centennial Beach is just around the corner. Peaks Island offers boating, walking, bicycling, picnicking, birdwatching, plus some nice restaurants. There are several nice sandy beaches. Portland is convenient for entertainment and shopping.

Wraparound porch! If you're like us, you'll spend most of your waking hours on the spacious front deck - at the picnic table or in the generous hot tub - watching the birds (birders, ask for a list), the deer, and the boats go by. The living room has windows galore. Even when you're indoors you'll feel as if you're outdoors. If it gets chilly there's a wood stove to keep you cozy (oil heat, too).

The dining room has sliders to the deck - so you won't miss any of the action. The modern kitchen is well-equipped, including a convection oven (we love to cook!) and a dishwasher (who wants to wash dishes on vacation?!), there's a Weber grill on the porch.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is spacious with great windows and views. It has a queen size bed and a washer/dryer right at hand. The guest bedroom, which adjoins the master bedroom, has a double bed. Both beds have high quality mattresses so you can count on waking up refreshed. Plus, for overflow guests, the sofa is mattress quality (twin size). The sumptuous upstairs bathroom has a double shower to die for! It's made of beautiful hand-painted Talavera tile from Mexico. And, for those chilly mornings, the tiled floor has built-in heat! A half bath is conveniently located on the main floor.

PLEASE NOTE: In July and August all rentals are for a 6-night minimum (the 7th night is free).

Property was great!

We had a great time. Hidden gem close to the ferry. Reasonably priced.

Fabulous Cottage

We have stayed a few times at the Feathered Nest and plan to be back! Wonderful kitchen for cooking and cozy house all around. Great location on Peaks Island.

Great little cottage

The owner was wonderful from the beginning! We had a really hard time finding the right house for our stay for a wedding we were attending on the island. Once we came in contact with the Feathered Nest everything was seamless. They answered our emails promtly and from deposit to checkout everything went smoothly. She had a PDF ready with everything...

Kind of cute, but a couple of issues

Whether you'd enjoy staying here probably depends on your expectations for a getaway. This is a small, cozy, slightly renovated cottage that still needs a lot of work. It is well-located if you like to walk to the village for newspapers, milk, etc., and for access to the 2 or 3 restaurants/café in the village (and the only ones on the island). The... Read More

Great stay at a perfect location

This home is a perfect place to stay on Peaks - close to the ferry and the businesses on the island, but feels secluded with a beautiful view of the water from the back porch. The inside is charming, and everything we needed was there, with excellent instructions and lots of info on the area. The hot tub on the back deck looked inviting, but it was... Read More
