Why Dean Tyler chose Hancock Point
This home offers spectacular water views. You feel like you are on the bridge of ship in the living. The view from the deck is excellent too. The neighborhood is quiet and we at near the end of a dead-end road.

Water’s Edge is truly wonderful!
We very much enjoyed our week at Water’s Edge. Ideally situated between the busy side of Acadia (Mt. Desert Island) and the quiet of the Schoodic Peninsula, Water’s Edge was a good home base while we hiked and explored both sections of the National Park. When not exploring, we sat on the deck watching the lobster boats haul in their traps, seals bopping in the water and a family of otters scurrying to/from their home beneath the boulders. Foggy/rainy days were ideal for curling up with a good book on the comfortable living room furniture... good for napping too! The cottage was very clean and Dean was quick to respond to any inquiries and questions. I especially appreciated Dean and Denise’s cottage guidebook which provided a very comprehensive overview of the area, including off-the-beaten path hikes (try Little Moose Island at low tide!), local restaurants, tide charts and even a cruise ship schedule so that we could identify which ships were coming and going (and to decide when to NOT venture into Bar Harbor). Truly a magical week, we hated to head home.
Beautiful location and beautiful house. You could not ask for a better property and better views. Central location and rental process could not be easier. Highly recommended.
We want to keep this gem of the Downeast of Maine house to ourselves but we must share!
If you are looking for the quintessential Downeast Maine location than this fits the bill. It is exactly how it is listed. You open the door and you immediately see the whole ocean in front of you. You are on the rocks and have views of the rocky coast and open waters. So amazing to be on top of the actual tides. You can see the lobster boats up close as they bring in their lobster pots. It is nestled in a quiet coastline setting that is perfect for quiet deck time giving you time to reflect on your day or your reading or just being mesmerized by the amazing views. The starry night skies are magical. Also this location is close to Bar Harbor (about 45 minute drive) and the view across from Bar Harbor is so close you can see Cadillac Mt. and watch the Margaret Todd windjammer come in/out. Winter Harbor (about 25 minute drive) is the perfect typical lobster/fishing village where you can get lobsters at the local co-op on your way back from exploring Schodic Point. The house is so comfortable with the 2 bedrooms and loft. There is plenty of room. So VERY clean and the decor is tastefully done. This was one of the best places we have rented in the area! Dean and Denise do a beautiful job and leave you with lots of information and ideas for exploring! We absolutely LOVED this place!!!!! With so much beauty and so peaceful, we were able to recapture our Maine memories:)
Thank you for the awesome review!
We spent four nights at this wonderful cottage and had a marvelous time. If views are your thing - book this. The house is right on the ocean and at high tide you can look right down into the crystal clear water. The beach is pebble/rock and my grandson had a blast throwing rocks into the water when the tide wasup. Kitchen was reasonably well appointed, wi-fi worked great, and the beds were comfortable. I would definately book again!
The pictures don’t do this house justice. The view is amazing. The house is comfortable, clean and perfect for a peaceful, relaxing getaway.
Breathtaking Views at Water's Edge!
Water's Edge was the perfect place for our Maine vacation! The views are absolutely breathtaking any time of day or evening. We enjoyed sitting in the living room watching the world go by as we spent time as a family playing games (nice selection at the house), listening to music (Bose stereo), sipping wine (glasses supplied) or spotting wildlife or lobster boats going by (binoculars provided). The beds were super comfy after a long day of hiking at Acadia or shopping in Bar Harbor just 30 minutes away. The Schoodic Peninsula is an awesome day of hiking and sightseeing! We enjoyed the tips Dean left for the trails, restaurants and other points of interest in the home manual. The house is updated, clean and very comfortable! Check in was super easy. We enjoyed the porch for breakfast several mornings and took a walk down by the shore at low tide. The house is equipped with kayaks, however, our days were full and we didn't use them on this trip. The house is located on a dead end road so there is little traffic, however, the location is perfect to visit the best of Maine. The Hancock Grocery Store was a daily stop! The homemade blueberry pie was the best!!! We had the best family vacation and can not wait to return to Maine. The Water's Edge is a great home, in a perfect spot for an amazing vacation!!! 5 🌟
