The perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Peak's several times but recently rented the Island Romance cottage for the first time and we couldn't have been happier!! We were in town for a Portland wedding on Saturday but enjoyed an extended weekend (Friday to Monday) on Peak's (easy to get to Portland on the ferry which runs late). Staying at Island Romance was the perfect, quiet escape for us! The cottage is quaint but spacious, equipped with anything we needed (could accommodate just the two of us or we could see returning with two more couples to have an equally great time). The cottage owner left instructions on the refrigerator about anything we were going to encounter which was unsurprising since she seemed extremely organized from our initial email interaction (going through the process of renting couldn't have been easier). We grilled up delicious steaks, fresh corn and asparagus from the local market (gas grill included!), enjoyed catching up on some reading and sipped morning coffee on the wrap-around porch as the sun came up. We ferried over our car, parked it at the cottage and enjoyed being far enough away from the ferry area to have some peace but close enough to get to the ferry in a pinch (which may or may not have happened, twice :-)). We enjoyed walking and driving the entire island, sightseeing and taking in the smells of the wild roses lining the sides of the ocean. We love this island and we love this cottage. We will be back!
