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

Ted's place was the perfect retreat for a quiet getaway to Peak's Island. The "treehouse" was comfortable, well-appointed and artfully decorated. Ted was a welcoming and thoughtful host. I highly recommend the treehouse for your Peak's Island getaway!

Ted's place is eclectic, informal and artsy. We were told by some locals that the Ted's house was at one time the store for the island. It certainly has the feel of a place that has been seen a lot. Peak's Island feels that way generally. Like all of the best parts of 30 years ag…

Ted's treehouse is unique, playful, and friendly. If you go in expecting an ordinary experience you could be shocked, but if you are game for an adventure (and ready to snuggle if you're bringing two people) you are in for a real treat. It's a rustic setting as other reviewers h…

This is a very cool property on an unbelievable island. Very eclectic. A work of art in progress. If you are overly picky and expect a clutter free and sanitized monotony, keep on scrolling. If you are up for a fun adventure in Ted’s creative world, something out of the ordinary …

Ted and Chris were phenomenal hosts! Ted’s space was awesome for a quick getaway, and we definitely had a lot of fun on the island! They have great knowledge of the areas and were extremely hospitable!

A student of life, a nomad, a philosopher, a clown, and an artist. I feel fortunate to have a piece of paradise, and love being able to share it.
