Also known as the Bell Cabin, Acadia Vista was built in 1950 by Charles Edward Bell (who also built the beautiful Tudor-style home across the road) and has been in the Bell family since. In 2006, the family remodeled the interior, keeping the beautiful pine floors while adding an airy cathedral ceiling. The family truly loves this home and are pleased to make it available to others who will appreciate its many qualities.
Guests are welcome to borrow the two bicycles (at their own risk) to explore the natural beauty of the area. Kayaks are available for rent locally. There is a quaint and well-stocked summer library on the main road, and a lovely non-denominational chapel that offers a variety of worship services during the summer months. Hancock Point also boasts a wonderful inn, the Crocker House, which has a very fine restaurant. Acadia Vista also has cable TV, broadband internet access and free digital long distance within the US.
Acadia Vista is located at the tip of Hancock Point, with views of Mt. Desert Island to the south and Schoodic Mountain to the east. The location is quiet and secluded, yet a short distance from Acadia National Park and other spectacular natural settings. The cottage is right on the water and there is access the shore. The closest major town, Ellsworth, is about 15 - 20 minutes away.
