The space

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

Cozy, colorful antique room with Cuban flare in artist's creative, quirky, ever-evolving home/ work of art. Beautiful bedroom in a home which is not fully completed. One block from the bay beach. 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. Just a 20 minute ferry ride from Portland. Get away from it all to this memorable and beautiful island spot! Stay here for a laid back island experience and a tower view of sunsets over the Diamond Islands in beautiful Casco Bay that's priceless.

First floor bedroom with shared bathroom on first floor.
*Sinks in bedroom not yet functional.

How do you get here?

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 make arrangements with Ted for pick-up in advance, 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.

Ted is FANTASTIC! He is my brother from another mother for sure. So welcoming and kind. Both Ted and his home are charming and eclectic with super positive energy that you just want to bottle up and take home. I LOVED our walk from the ferry to his home in a lovely picturesque ne…

Ted's place was an exceptional experience. As a traveling couple, we have stayed in multiple Airbnb's and Ted was by far the friendliest, most selfless host we've ever had! On the one day it rained, Ted was more than willing to let us hangout in the house and even make breakfast…

I came up to Peaks Island with a friend to see the Perseid meteor showers. We came looking for a dark place to put down blankets and eat some picnic food. We left with a gem of a friend -- Ted. What a generous guy, and an incredible person to talk to late into the night. Thank …
