Lovely & comfortable house, beautiful location

Lovely & comfortable house, beautiful location

Suzanne's house was perfect for our big family's stay there. The house is charmingly decorated while also being incredibly comfortable and functional, stocked with everything we needed to have a fabulous time. We traveled to Bar Harbor for a big lobster dinner at a great place that Suzanne recommended, we had a big family dinner on the back deck (complete with grill and porch furniture!) We explored Hancock Point, which is quaint and beautiful, the town harbor is full of sailboats and looks out over Mount Desert Island - stunning view!

The big old farmhouse was well cared for, and easily accommodated our party of 8. Suzanne went out of her way to make sure that we were comfortable, as well as giving us lots of info about the area - activities, places to eat etc. The house is a 10 min walk to a very pretty cove, and is surrounded by fields and forests and only one or two houses. There's a big back yard for kids to play in as well as a huge field with paths all around the property. Being there felt like we were truly escaping it all!

Would absolutely recommend to a friend and hope to go back next year with family again!

Magical Location, Lovely Home, Attentive Host

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and spent four days here in early this month and it was a totally magical experience. We had friends here for the first two nights and the house is big and spacious enough to sleep six comfortably, though more if you had a big family. A very well-equipped kitchen and a grill outside, a separate laundry room and a lovely dining room. The house is old but well cared for, homey and cozy. The owner/caretaker lives very close by and was on hand to bring us firewood, give directions and recommendations for things to do in the area. Very attentive, very nice. The location is gorgeous, a lovely walk down the quiet street brings you down to the water. Acadia National Park and too many other wonderful little seaside towns to list here are easily accessible. Biking is highly recommended, we brought our bikes and explored the whole area around the house and took them also to Acadia National Park. Lovely house very typical of the area, extremely relaxing location with almost no cars on the road but civilization close by.

Nice views but no hot water & very old house

Nice views but no hot water & very old house
  • 2 of 5
Me and my friends went to this place. View from rooms are nice. Owner has kept a lot of kitchen utensils which was helpful. House is pretty old and I think owner wants to maintain that décor. We had hot water issues and it would flow for just 15 mins. Pretty much we went without shower or shower in ice cold water. There are 2 bath rooms but 1 is of no use as its old style, hand held and it reaches only certain height.
The barbeque gas was out in 5 mins and the spare was empty too. After calling the owner she got a new one but by then it was raining a lot and was of no use. We felt owner should have kept a filled one before a guest moves in. Owner would respond and be there for us in few minutes but there was no use of it as things could not be fixed. Example- water / gas and heating in the house as its old.

Owner's Response: The Farmhouse has a 40 gallon hot water heater. I often put it on a timer when I'm staying there or turn it down when the house is empty, so as not to waste energy. I've stopped doing that during the rental season because I sometimes forget to disconnect the timer, so hot water should not ever be an issue. Sometimes for larger groups (9 people) you might need to wait 20 minutes after several people take showers and do wash in order to let the tank reheat.

The large upstairs bathroom has a toilet a sink and a shower and the small downstairs bathroom has a toilet a sink and a tub with a hand held shower head, which is perfect for bathing small children.

I always keep a spare gas canister for the grill in the garage.

I don't go anywhere in the summer. I make a real effort to be available to renters and if I have to be away I make sure someone is available to help in an emergency.

We are located in Hancock, Maine, halfway between Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park at Schoodic Point. The secluded location is close to the village of Hancock in an excellent area for a vacation with hiking biking, kayaking and berry picking. Step out the door and take a peaceful, ten-minute walk to Jellison Cove on Frenchman's Bay or explore the nearby woods and fields.

Enjoy the beauty of coastal Maine. Bike to the Frenchman Bay Nature Conservancy where you can hike, kayak, or picnic. Take a ride around the point and see the wonderful old historic houses, visit the library and Carter's Beach, all here on the point.

Drive to nearby Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island (40 minutes) or to Acadia National Park on Schoodic point (about 25 minutes in the opposite direction) and enjoy the quintessential Maine coastal villages along the way. Shop or go to the movies in Bar Harbor (45 minutes) or Ellsworth (20 minutes).

The little town of Hancock, Maine boasts some fabulous fine dining restaurants (Crocker House, Le Domaine), and several more modest restaurants with great local and ethnic offerings. Or just eat in on the cottage's covered porch and enjoy a peaceful evening watching the sun set and listening to bird song.
