Beautiful view of the water. it was clean, comfortable and convenient. We could see the ferries come in and it was convenient to food and shopping. A very nice place to stay. It was a good place to circumnavigate the island.

We've been coming to Peaks Island for a few years now, and have always stayed at the Peaks Island House. I believe we have stayed in 3 of the 4 rooms available, not including the little cottage. Joe is very accommodating to our needs every time. Highly recommend trying the quant rooms. We have never had a complaint.

Had lunch yesterday at the Peaks Island House. The food was excellent, just as we have had in the past. There is a large menu with everything from appetizers to hot and cold sandwiches to full dinner items. The summer menu will be even longer with several lobster items. The view is terrific. It was quite warm out there yesterday... More

Be prepared to wait a long time for your food. Very average "pub food". Nothing special on the menu at all. I cant understand why with only 3 restaurants on this island, why they wouldnt serve lobster. we had a paty of 8 and we all wanted lobster. we settled for a lot less. Stop for a drink with a...

My wife and I stayed a Peaks Island House and were delighted by the view of the bay and the Portland skyline. We shared a bottle of wine in the Adirondack chairs near the shore as the tide rolled in. The owner was a delightful fellow who left his cell number in case we needed anything. The restaurant was closed... More

It's my parents favorite place to stay on Peaks and my favorite place for lunch. The food is good,reasonably priced, and I could look at the view all day! and it's so close to the ferry terminal that it's an easy lunch stop from Portland. We have been eating there for years and haven't been let down yet.

Everyone raves about room #5 and it took us awhile to find out that it is a detached cottage with a kitchenette and balcony. We stayed in one of the four rooms under the restaurant, accessed by the service entrance to the restaurant. The staff was excellent, helpful, and always somewhere at hand, always busy. They led us to our... More

Peaks Island is a gem in itself. A twenty minute ferry ride on Casco Bay Lines from Portland, you are transported into a slower, quieter realm. The Peaks Island House offers all you need: The rooms are modest and cozy, but look out onto Casco Bay and the sunset. The upstairs restaurant is quite good. Down the lawn is the... More

After a lovely bike ride around all of Peaks Island and then picking up some ice cream from the store, there is nothing better then walking over to our lovely room and sitting on our balcony and looking at the water. Room 5 is slightly separate so I recommend it. The staff was very nice as well. Room isn't luxurious... More
