Cozy room in lovely house. Quiet and light. Shared bath & entry. On second floor of house. 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 via 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, 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!

I have written to Nancy privately about the issues in her home that prompted me to ask for a refund for my stay. She did acknowledge my concerns and promptly refunded my money. Nancy will have a lovely home to stay in for a visit to Peaks Island once these concerns are addressed.

Nancy's place was a great place to stay for a little over a month. It was a very enjoyable experience as she is very friendly and easy going. The house is very close to the ferry which made my weekday commute easy. It takes some time getting used to planning your schedule around the ferry times but after a while you get the hang of it. I highly recommend Nancy's place for either a short term stay or for an extended period of time!

I stayed at Nancy's for a little over a month and had a wonderful time. The location was great (close to the ferry). Bed was comfortable. Overall the Wi-Fi was good. Nancy kept me informed of events taking place around the island which was helpful and I enjoyed meeting her other guests. Nancy cooked dinner for us a couple of times which was a real treat! After I managed to forget my sneakers at her place Nancy graciously mailed them to me at no charge. Beautiful island and gracious host. Would definitely return!

Waking up on an island every day is pretty much all you want anyway, but being in a big house with a nice kitchen and lots of umbrellas isn't going to hurt either. So close to the ferry and what little commercial area there is on Peaks Island, there really couldn't be an easier way to go about this.

We had a fabulous stay at Nancy's on Peaks Island! The room was clean and well equipped, the house was beautiful and Nancy was very welcoming. The location was perfect, close to the ferry and a great base from which to explore. We'd love to come back and spend more time!

I had a really great time on Peaks Island and staying with Nancy 3 Hoffman in her wonderful home. I stayed several weeks and Nancy went out of her way to make sure that I was comfortable, and confident, about exploring the Island and Portland proper. We met as strangers and left as friends, and that is the best endorsement I can possibly give. Thank you Nancy! You will enjoy visiting her museum downfront, the Umbrella Cover Museum. It is in the Guinness book of world records, a book I devoured as a youth, so right off the bat this place holds a special place in my heart. Past visitors send her items from all over the world, it is quite amazing. She will also be part of the American Idol Portland sequence this winter, as her full musical talents will be on full display, namely accordion, vocal and piano (which she will play at home and you will fall in love with her beautiful voice). She even introduced me to the Ukelele! She is also heading to England this Spring on a quest to find more Umbrella covers, so look for her crowd-sourcing campaign and support the cause! As you can see, I had a wonderful time and am a big fan. Addressing some particulars, one of the big benefits of this Airbnb listing is its close proximity to the ferry landing or "downfront". This is one of those rare listings where "five minutes walk" means, truly, five minutes walk. Sooooo...convenient. And in 20 minutes you are docking in the Old Port and enjoying all that it has to offer. And if you don't want to get off the Island, you can explore all its stunning natural beauty by foot or bicycle (Nancy has an extra bike, sometime two for you to use) and the beaches and the awesome Inn and two other great restaurants. I am sure I will return, and I hope others reading this will be inspired to explore this Island and Portland and perhaps stay at this great locale and enjoy Nancy 3's wonderful hospitality.

Nancy 3 was an excellent host. She made us feel welcome immediately and gave great advice about things to do on the Island. She is also the founder of the incomparable umbrella cover museum (a must see on your tour of Peaks).

Nutzerprofil von Nancy 3.

I am a musician and museum curator. I will orient you to the island, make you feel at home, then leave you alone, unless you want to shmooze. I love learning about people from different backgrounds, places, cultures. I'm a people person, but not too in your face. I go down to The Umbrella Cover Museum most days (I hope you'll stop in to see it!). My museum just got into The Guinness Book of World Records, so you could brag that you stayed with a Guinness World Record holder. How special is THAT!?
