Hancock Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom/2 bath, private shorefront
Hand-built by the owner, Seafarer Ledge has a traditional Atlantic seacoast design. It’s in perfect harmony with the wooded and ocean surroundings while having all the comforts and conveniences of a modern home.
Located in beautiful Hancock, Maine just 22 minutes from Information Center for Acadia National Park and the Bar Harbor town line (about 16 miles), this beautiful cottage sits high along the shore, just around the bay from Hancock Point, on heavenly wooded property. Enjoy privacy, peace, the wonderful Maine shoreline, and a safe, friendly environment for you, your guests, and your pet!
Stairs take you down to the rocky/ledge shore, where the tide brings a new view every 6 hours! From the vista of the bluff you can see fishing boats moored across the bay—a truly coastal experience.
The cottage features a living room with wood burning fireplace and sleep sofa, dining area, full kitchen, 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6+), 2 bathrooms. The first floor features a wonderful old-fashioned porch facing the ocean, for BBQ-ing and entertaining, as well as a screened-in porch area, and bedroom with two twin beds (there is a window A/C unit in this room). The entire 2nd floor is two large master bedrooms (one has a window A/C unit) and a shared master bath. Amenities include Satellite TV, VCR, stereo, computer with high speed internet, large bathtub (master bath), king beds in master bedrooms, deck furniture, gas BBQ, and of course, all the appliances and household items to make it your home-away-from-home.
Just a mile or so from the cottage is Tidal Falls, the famous reversing tides channel which connects Taunton Bay to Frenchman's Bay (and Mt. Desert Island). The Falls are open to the public and have a lawn with picnic tables.
This tranquil retreat is situated in one of the most popular vacation destinations in the country, in a delightful coastal community, close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.
