     Description 


A brochure can be mailed out upon request.

Kitty's Pence is a year round cottage on Peaks Island, which is
just a 15 minutes ferry ride from Portland, Maine. On the island
one may find sandy and rocky beaches, fresh water ponds, hiking
trails through lush forests, a coastal trail with breathtaking
views, friendly people and serenity.

One may also enjoy restaurants and pubs, art galleries, gift
shops, a grocery store and deli, library with internet access and
bike and kayak rentals.

The cottage was on the House Tour. It has a beautifully
renovated kitchen featured in "Smart Homeowner Magazine" (May/
June 2004), a private deck for sunning, dining and relaxing.
There is one bathroom with tub and shower, washer and dryer.
Colorful original artwork brightens the cottage throughout. A
large family room provides shelves full of books and games and a
piano.



 

     Amenities 


This is a year round cottage with heat. It has fully equipped
kitchen with gas stove/oven, microwave, coffee
maker, toaster oven, large refigerator/freezer. Dining indoors
or on deck for 6. Stereo with cd player, TV and video player.
Indoor and outdoor showers. Washer and dryer.



 

     Attractions 


Walking and bike riding are the preferred modes of transportation
on the island. A couple of minutes to the back shore on foot
will lead you to a rocky seascape framed by the lush foliage of
sea roses. Also, a few minutes from the cottage on foot will
take you to a fresh water pond and trails through the interior of
the island.

Beachcombing is a favorite pastime as seaglass and sea china are
plentiful. Fishing gear can be rented at Brad's bike rental
shop. Kayaks can also be rented by the hour. Art Walks to
island artists' studios are scheduled each month.

Just a short walk will also lead you to the 5th Maine Regiment
Museum where you can see a Civil War collection and displays on
local history. Also at the Fifth Maine community activities are
plentiful: pancake breakfasts, bean or chowder suppers, musical
concerts, guest speakers and other interesting programs.

Golf cart tours of the island are available and guided by island
residents who are well-versed in local history.

Portland, Maine is just 15 minutes away by ferry. Portland's
"Old Port" has many restaurants and night spots, clothing
boutiques, gift shops, art galleries and museums. The Portland
Museum of Art has many fine collections. See "Frank Lloyd Wright
and the House Beautiful" there through October 8.
