This is our very special place on historical Peaks Island in Maine. Peaks Island is accessible by a ferry from Casco Bay Lines in Portland, Maine. The house is a short walk from the ferry drop-off point on the island. Also a stroll away is everything on the downfront strip -- an iconic ice cream shop, full service market (including liquor - if they don't have it, you don't need it), gift store, post office, police/fire station, library, and even a hardware store. Also accessible are special event venues for weddings, comedy shows and even the island summer tradition, Reggae Sundays at Jones Landing. For a day trip, take a 20 minute ferry ride into the lively city of Portland. Featured in numerous articles appearing in The New York Times and Bon Appetit, Portland has defined itself as an Epicurean destination.
Wonderful home with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms (one has shower and the other has an awesome full length bathtub), full kitchen with new gas/convection stove, open floor plan dining room and connected cozy living room is flooded with sunlight and water views through the 2 story high windows on front of house with cathedral ceiling. The living room also boasts a propane fireplace, the perfect spot for relaxing! Whether you are curled up with a book by the fire, sun bathing on the porch or the beach, or taking a leisurely stroll around the island - it's an amazing oasis for those that need a change of pace. And somewhere you can make memories with your family & loved ones.
We have WiFi and cable TV. Two decks-one off the living room on the main floor and one off the master bedroom upstairs (great spot to have coffee in the morning!) both with water views. Washer/dryer, charcoal grill, and propane fireplace. A very short walk to/from the ferry and 'Sandy Beach' right across the street.
