Peaks Island Cottage/ The Snuggle Inn


Property Details

Updated: Aug 27, 2016
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 5 Sleeps

This is a beautifully renovated 1900's cottage.

Located in the central part of the island, making it a more peaceful spot for some rest and relaxation, yet is only a 3 minute walk to the water and ten minute walk to the ferry. Ferries run approx. every hour and is a short 15 minute ride into beautiful Portland. Known as a "foodie" city, Portland has an amazing array of restaurants within walking distance of the ferry terminal. The island offers three restaurants and a daytime cafe as well as an ice cream shop.

Enjoy the tranquility and wild life that surrounds the cottage.

The house is a one bedroom with a queen sized bed upstairs as well as a single pull out love seat making the bedroom perfect for a couple and small child. Downstairs sofa is also a queen sized pull out sleeper.

Enjoy relaxing on the front porch or upper deck off of the upstairs bedroom.

There is also a new screen house out back for insect-free outdoor dining.

Perfect for a writers get-a-way!

The perfect combination of elegance and charm!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the PERFECT place for my family and me to escape the busyness of our lives and focus on the important things like s'mores, tide pools, sandcastles, and bike rides along the coast line. The cottage was beautiful, clean, and well kept. Everything we could possible need was provided, and the owner is the definition of hospitable! I highly recommend the Snuggle Inn!

A tiny house with mammoth personality

  • 5 of 5

This cottage, in the wooded center of Peak's Island, is the perfect getaway for one or two people. Though tiny, it offers everything vacationers need. It is but a short walk to the ocean. It is quiet: beyond the twitters of little birds and the occasional horse rider, there is only the sway of tall trees in a breeze. The porches invite the weary to let all woes go. I cannot say enough about The Snuggle Inn. It is clean, well maintained, and exerts a proud and mighty stamp on the quietest part of the island. I hope to make it an annual event to visit The Snuggle Inn.

This property was so perfect...adorable, comfortable, private but still close to everything. We usually stay at family cottage when we go to Peaks but this trip was for a huge family wedding. It was unanimous by all family and friends that our accommodations were the best!! Told the family to give us plenty of notice on the next Peaks wedding so we can book this cottage again!! Could not have asked for more and wouldn't change a thing!! SIMPLY PERFECT!

Cottage Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two weeks on Peaks at the cottage. The cottage is extremely cute and the photos do not do justice to it. It was perfect for relaxing and spending time with family. My husband, two kids and I enjoyed bicycling the island, exploring all the beaches, eating seafood, riding the ferry...too many things to name. The cottage itself is beautiful, has everything you could need, roomy, and just a perfect location for those of us who enjoy privacy, yet the convenience of a short walk/ride into town. The beach down the road is nice and good for the kids to snorkel around, plus beach combing for glass. All in all a great vacation rental and the owner is extremely pleasant and communicative. Thank you for the great stay. We will be back again.

Owner's Response: We are always thrilled when our guests enjoy this little gem as much as we do!! We try our best to present the cottage as accurately as possible but apparently we may be a bit too modest. : )

Great Romantic Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I instantly loved this little cottage! It was clean and neat as a pin, with everything you would need for a comfy stay. Fluffy towels, a well supplied kitchen, roomy dining table, comfortable bed with plenty of nice blankets, an outdoor grill and fire pit! The decor was lovely with great attention to detail. Seashells, seaglass, little glass bottles strung across the front window, and painted cottage furniture. There was also a little propane fireplace that kept the place nicely heated on the cold rainy days. The location was great too, we just parked the car for the week and walked everywhere, or took the ferry to Portland for the day to the museum. The cottage is in the woods on a road that turns from paved to dirt, and you can walk to the backside of the island in minutes. We went to the Peaks library to check our e-mail and even found a ping pong game going on in the community room there! All in all this was the perfect, private,cozy location for us to totally relax!Thanks Kate!
