Overview

Hancock House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 10--14

Spacious house in Hancock Point summer community, right on Frenchman Bay with shared private beach, looking across to the mountains of Acadia National Park. Quiet location, yet only 20-minute drive to Ellsworth for groceries and shopping, walk to the Crocker House or drive 10 minutes to Salt Box or Chester Pike's for excellent food. Public dock, tennis courts and a library all within walking distance.

We’ve been lucky enough to spend summers here for nearly sixty years—we hope you will love it as much as we do. It’s not a modern house (although the kitchen is), it’s old and comfortable and a bit worn in places, but it’s clean, light and airy and the location is idyllic.

The Big House in August!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to wake up with views out onto the sea without having to lift your head off the pillow, this is the place for you. Its location could not be more perfect, at the end of the point, within a few yards of the ocean. There is plenty to do- sailing, kayaking, cycling, walking, swimming and visiting Acadia National Park- in addition, nearby freshwater lakes are a delight. We saw eagles, porpoises and seals whilst kayaking. There is also a beautiful balcony with hammock for chilling with a good book and watching the world go by.

The house has all amenities you need for a relaxing holiday with local shops close by. I would thoroughly recommend this house as a tranquil holiday location.
