The space

Just a 20 minute ferry ride from Portland. A magical third floor room in an artist's creative, quirky, ever-evolving home/ work of art. (shared bathroom on first floor.) If you're a writer, this is for you. A beautiful, quiet, airy, sunny bedroom in the tower of a whimsical 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. 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.

Please note: Third floor bedroom with shared bathroom on first floor. You will have to walk through an area under-renovation, or down deck stairs to get to first floor.

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 Ted's 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’s space was perfect for our weekend getaway! He was the greatest host — communicative, helpful, so kind, and generous. He went out of his way to make sure we were at home and having a great time, putting wine and chocolates in our room, taking us on a drive around the island,…

Ted's house is unique and so is he, a kindhearted and great personality. The place is just a few steps from the beach and it's great to explore the island. We spent wonderful days here, especially liked the "tower". Good place for (writing) retreats. Hope to be back one day!

Ted is a wonderful host and his place on the island is just as amazing. He was generous enough to offer us his canoe and bikes, which was perfect for touring around the island. His house is super fun, with art and antiques to look at in nearly every corner. Ted gave us tons of re…

Ted and his friends/guests are great people. Ted was very helpful with our check-in as well as tips for parking and having fun in Portland. We took him up on his suggestions and had a wonderful trip. Thanks Ted

I had a truly special time staying at Ted's place- the "pink room" was clean, cute, comfortable, charming and a minute walk from the shoreline. The little lookout/deck that sits on its own above the house allowed for an exceptional view of the harbor which we enjoyed with the bot…
