  • How do we get to the Island?
    Yes! There are restaurants with bars, shops, museums, and lots of things happening on the Island. We are a highly seasonal location so not all attractions are open year-round. You will want to confirm hours and availability of Island businesses and attractions from mid-September through mid-May. All of Peaks Island is fully open June, July, and August.
  • What should we bring?
    Anything you think you might need. Our homes are stocked with basics like paper towels, toilet paper, salt and pepper, and other basics. All our homes will have pots and pans, dishes, dish towels, and the lawn furniture and furnishings pictured. If you have a specific need, please reach out to us. Most homes have internet, TVs, dishwashers, and laundry. It will be noted in the property description if these amenities are not available.
  • Are towels and linens included?
    No. As has been our policy for more than two decades, you must bring your own linens. Some homes will provide towels. Please email us or check your home’s description. Linen Rental is available. We contract with area providers to coordinate linens for your stay. If you’d like to have linens and towels waiting for you upon arrival, please contact us and we’ll make it happen.
