The space

(Please read entire description to answer questions about kids, pets, over two people and transportation)

Ready for an adventure on Peaks Island, Maine? This two story, 11'x 11' cottage is perfect for one or two people looking for a non-traditional get-away. A quiet, private mini-house next to a larger active guest house.

Your host, Ted is an old hippie who is young at heart, who will share his eclectic home, warm hospitality, and ideas for a fun-filled island adventure. Enjoy bicycling or hiking around the island, exploring the rocky shore-line, relaxing on the beach and dining at local restaurants.

Equipped with a kitchenette and half bathroom (shared full bath in main house), a ladder to the second floor, just a block from the beach, and a 20 minute ferry ride to Portland, you are guaranteed to have a memorable and rich stay here. Located next to an artist's creative, quirky, ever-evolving home/ work of art which is not fully completed.

Kitchenette includes convection oven, toaster oven, hot plates, refrigerator and sink.

Please note that the bedroom is on the second floor via a sturdy ladder. Note: Futon in photos has been replaced with a comfortable, real bed.

2 guests preferred. If necessary to add one guest, $35.00 extra per night. 3 guests absolute maximum.

Sorry NO PETS, no exceptions. I love pets, but the house is not set up to accomodate them, sorry!

You can either park your car for free at your own risk on the street in Portland, at the ferry terminal in Portland for $25.00/ day, or bring your car on the ferry (see below for rates). If you are coming by foot, you can either take the Island Taxi to "Ted's Place," or walk for one mile on Island Avenue to the Tree House. Let Ted know in advance if you would like a ride to or from the ferry for $3.00 per person if more than one, and $5.00 for single person. Either way, we recommend you pack lightly, bringing only what you will need for the time you will stay.

Off-Peak Rates: October 12 - April 16
Vehicle which includes one ticket: $37 round trip
Walk on ticket: $4.00 round trip

Peak Rates: April 17 - October 11

Ted's place was magical. The "treehouse" was more than we could ever imagine. Ted's home was welcoming and warm and we will be returning for sure. Thank you for everything, Peak's Island is an incredible place.

Hi Ted, Ted is a good host. He was there to greet and welcome us, which we appreciated very much. We enjoyed the concept of the tree house. The quarters are nice, although they were a few glitches. We found the house to be cluttered mix of items which filled every available s…

Ted is fantastic! He is a wonderful host, opening up his home as well as the tree house to us. We were even invited to join his friends for a spaghetti dinner in his tower floating above the roof of the house. The treehouse is adorable and the main house is wacky and wonderful…
