This property was an absolute fantastic place to enjoy a relaxing week on Peaks Island. We rode bikes all around the island, and I don’t think I spotted a better view. The house is at the end of a dead end, dirt road toward the back of the island so you have very few people passing by. Plus being on the back side of the island, you get a nice cool breeze from the open water which was quite refreshing. The porch at the house was probably ten degrees cooler than the front part of the island by the ferry.
It does not have air conditioning, but it was not needed for our stay. In fact, it got a little chilly at night, but nothing an extra blanket couldn’t cure. When you first turn down the street, you may be a little worried as it is a very wooded area with a dirt road cutting a path between densely populated trees with a couple houses where it looks like one or two of the owners may regularly wear a goalie mask and carry a machete. But, as you get a quarter mile in it opens up revealing several very nice houses including Woody’s cottage in the middle.
Despite my fears of being attacked by a rabid raccoon while scrubbing my bald head with the refreshing body wash my wife brought, the outdoor shower was fine with plenty of hot water. The inside of the house was very quaint and clean and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. I would definitely stay at this location again and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of spending time on the island.
