Hancock Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description
3-Bedroom Log Home On Historic Taunton Bay. Pets Should Feel Right At Home.
It's a 10-year old 3-bedroom log house, nestled among the evergreens, oaks, and Harbor Seals. Situated right on Taunton Bay. Got all the comforts of home here -- fridge, LP gas oven, DW, microwave, piano, bikes, DVD/CD, fireplace, linens, W/D, and more stuff...not the least of which will be peace and quiet. About 45 min. from BHB/Acadia, 30 min. from Schoodic, and 3 hrs. from Baxter St. Park (and all the moose). Hancock has two excellent restaurants, with a third one just opening up this summer. Can't vouch for it yet. Ellsworth, the closest real town, has everything you'll need, and it's a not-too-close 7 miles away. What else can I tell you? Look at the photos and you'll see what awaits you. By the way, there's another structure on the property, a small cabin, and I'll be living there while you're here. But don't worry, and trust me - you won't even know I exist. I'm a nature photographer by trade and that means I can be nearly invisible. You'll have total privacy. Also, pets are encouraged, not just permitted. Okay. Look forward to hearing from you.

About William 'Gerry' Patrick
Hi. My name's William Patrick. Please call me Gerry, my middle name. I live here with my 12-year old mostly-Corgi, Bruce. This is where I grew up and I can't say enough good things about it, but the first thing I'll say is that it's the reason I do what I do now for a living. I'm a nature photographer and being here, being immersed in nature 24/7, convinced me to do what I do. This place tends to get in your blood and stay there. I need to let you know that if you stay here, I'll be living in the little cabin on the property. But don't freak out. You'll have tons of privacy, and might not even know I'm there. And should anything go wrong, I'm right there to take care of it. That is all. Come here.
William 'Gerry' Patrick purchased this chateau / country house in 2005
