Peas & Quiet: a happy quiet place to spend a week or more

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom

Description

Rental is from Saturday (check-in time 3 p. M. ) to Saturday (check-out time 11 a. M. ). This beautiful offering is one-half of an owner-occupied duplex, built like a separate house, completely private, with a separate entrance. On the first floor is a living and dining area (with woodstove for chilly nights), and a kitchenette on one end. A large sliding glass door at one end looks into a Japanese garden. The kitchenette is small but well-furnished (no microwave) and has everything one needs to cook summer meals. A bright, open stairway to the second floor offers views through a skylight of the water during the day and stars at night. On clear days, Mount Washington can be seen on the horizon. From the skylight and a small balcony off one of the two bedrooms are stunning sunset views of Portland, Little Diamond and Mackworth islands and Diamond Passage. Many boats, ferries, fishing, and pleasure boats travel between Portland and the islands. There is always something interesting to see. On the second floor are the two bedrooms and a full bath. The bathroom has a tub and excellent shower, with tiled floor. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the other a full-size, both with comfortable mattresses (bedding provided), and quilts for cool nights. The bedrooms also both have closets. The house is clean and well cared for with light, polished wood floors throughout. Outdoors is an attractive garden with chairs for enjoying coffee, drinks or meals and taking in the view. The space is perfect for a couple, two couples, a parent (s) with children, or for a solo person wanting a happy, quiet, summer retreat for writing or painting. The owner in the separate adjoining house is a fiction writer who teaches graduate writing students. In summer, the vegetable garden may have extras to share. Property is an easy 10-minute walk from the ferry, less than a 10-minute walk to Centennial Beach (a long, lovely beach with sunset views). There is easy access to hiking trails through the woods and to the Atlantic side of the island (a 20-minute walk). Rental is from Saturday (check-in time 3 p. M. ) to Saturday (check-out time 11 a. M. ). No partial weeks. $900/week
