A piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Loved spending a few days at Judy's cottage in Hancock, while visiting Acadia & Bar Harbor. After exploring & hiking, it was so wonderful to come back to the cottage, and enjoy the amazing view from the porch.

Babe, the local lobsterman, provided his catch for a memorable meal, and even took my husband out on his boat for a morning run.

Thanks again Judy....we loved it all!

Good location and view, but cabin needs maintenance

  • 3 of 5

Great location and view, but the upkeep on the property is subpar. Musty downstairs, dirty carpets, dirty BBQ, pots and pans need replacement. Would be better for family rather than 2 couples. Property has great potential!!

Wonderful place for family retreats

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for six nights, and we really enjoy it and will want to come back. Although the place is no luxury, it is cozy, comfort and secluded by the water. Judy, the owner is easy to work with and very assessable. I love the water views from bedroom, kitchen, and the family room. We also love the lobsters that local fishermen Babe's bring to your door steps. We love the surrounding areas that are away from the tourists. Walmart was about 15 min away and has everything. Highly recommended!

Comfortable cottage with a homey, lived-in feel to it

  • 4 of 5

We spent a delightful week in Maine at the cottage. Judy was wonderful to work with! Unfortunately we were not able to meet in person, but we spoke a few times on the phone, and she was very helpful, friendly and informative. She clearly cares very much about making her guests' experience at the cottage the best it can be. The deck on the cottage is outstanding! Sitting out there in the morning drinking our coffee and watching the sun rise over Jellison Cove was fantastic. The cottage is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. The living room furniture could maybe be updated and a little more comfortable, but that's a small complaint. We loved going down to the beach and seeing the Emerald crabs and having stone skipping contests. And making smores by the campfire was fun! I will say we did get a little tired of the drive to Acadia, as we spent the majority of our time at the park hiking, biking, and enjoying Bar Harbor, so if that is going to be your main focus, you might want to stay a little closer.

Th cottage was all we hoped for. Clean, cozy, comfortable, with all the modern day conveniences.

  • 5 of 5

Sunrises, birds, ocean views from every window, kayaking, lobster dinners, cool evenings, star gazing - all without ever having to leave the property.

We rode our bikes every morning to the point. You can take the 10 mile route or the 6. We took a horse riding lesson at Double L's and had a lovely dinner at Crocker House Inn, both just 4 minutes away.

We drove to Schoodic Peninsula, at Acadia, and had a picnic on the rocks. Lobster rolls left over from the lobster dinner the night before. Which by the way were caught that day and delivered to our door by the lobstermen who dock their boat in Jellison Cove!! I'm not kidding!

We drove 20 minutes to Elsworth center, had a great lunch at Finns and I bought a great necklace made by a local artist at a jewelry store in the center.

We can not imagine how this vacation could have been better. Thank you Judy, for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Best,

Maggie and Charlie

QUIET GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is excellent for those seeking a quiet (except for a flock of raucous crows) retreat from everything. The views are wonderful and this cottage is perfect as a stepping stone to both the Bar Harbor Area of Acadia National Park but also the Schoodic Peninsula area. If you like lobster, buy one right off Babe's boat, docked right in the bay--an amazing experience. Beds are very comfortable but furniture in living room should be replaced, as well as the floors of the kitchen and bathroom. Other than that, enjoy the brand new barbecue grill, the seats and table on the deck and the beautiful flowers. Have fun.

Winter rate is for minimum of 6 months preference will be given for 8 months. The rent is $900.00/mo + utilities.

Guest who do not have pets are very sensitive to the pet smells and pets can require extra cleaning. I think the policy I have in place, helps to minimize the" traces" pets leave.
