Million dollar view

A clean and cozy cottage with with an amazing view across the waters of Frenchman's Bay to the mountains of Acadia -- and the cruise ships visiting Bar Harbor! We loved the place, despite the fact that certain aspects have gone beyond shabby/chic to just plain shabby. This mid-century cottage needs some sprucing up, not to make it chic or luxurious, but keep it reasonably attractive and in good working order. I think the people who would rent this place would be, like us, interested in savoring the beauties of the place, and would not be using the cottage merely as a place to sleep. It's distance from the noise and crowds is one of its chief features, and so a little more attention to the upkeep of the cottage would guarantee that folks like us would rave about the place and we would make a point of returning.

I checked the box to recommend this cottage for those over 55 but should include the caveat that the lawn is treacherously uneven and that there's quite a drop from the first stair to the lawn. This comes as a surprise especially when one is going out. Otherwise the one-floor layout is ideal.

Perfectly located house, great for couples

  • 5 of 5
I've been coming to Hancock Point since I was a child and this was the first time I came without my family; my fiance and I did a road trip with Hancock Point as our destination, and were excited to find such a great affordable place that could accommodate a couple, especially since so many places on the Point are larger and more for families. The little house has a cute little porch--the view is not as amazing as the big house because of the trees, but the pictures are accurate, and it doesn't really matter when you have beach access (nice beach, good combo of rocks and beach area), and a wooden deck to be able to relax on during lunch or cocktail hour. The house itself is typical Maine; rustic cottage, so not for people looking for a luxury home. If you want that, you shouldn't be on Hancock Point. The bedroom is great, it has a nice view of Mt. Desert Island and windows for a breeze, and the house is perfectly located for walking to the library and everywhere else around the point. The owner is great, responsive, provides all the info you need, and is often next door during the season. We tried to rent again this year but waited too long; I would definitely stay here again.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience renting this little house for about 6 days in August. The pictures are very accurate, the house is clean and everything we needed was there for us - the lobster pot was especially helpful!! The ocean view and rocky beach access was the real draw of the property - to watch the lobster boats go by and see Bar Harbor across the bay was just the Maine experience we were looking for. Drove to Acadia a few of the days - not too bad of a drive (maybe 40 min or so) and the location was much more private and quiet than staying closer would have been. Beautiful spot, great interaction with the owner - everything was really easy.

Highly recommend!
