Hancock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 2 full bath, sleeps 10

HANCOCK POINT

Hancock Point is a charming and quiet seaside community of summer homes and cottages that include community tennis courts, library, chapel and waterfront activities (swim/boat/fishing). The quaint community sits on a picturesque peninsula surrounded by Frenchman’s Bay and the Skillings River. Tennis (clay courts), kayak and sailing instructions are also available. The Crocker House, a local inn with gourmet cuisine, is in the center of the Point. Horseback riding and kayaking expeditions are also available locally.

The cottage is nestled across from the Hancock Point wharf/dock, overlooking the breathtaking waters of Frenchman’s Bay. It is easy walking distance to the Crocker House Country Inn/Restaurant, the Hancock Point library, chapel, Post Office and Village Green, tennis courts and the wharf.

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park/Mt. Desert Island are a 30-40 Minute drive from the cottage. The town of Ellsworth is only a 15 minute drive, where you’ll find shopping, fine restaurants and cafes. Bangor International Airport is a 45 min. drive and the smaller Trenton Airport is just 20 min. away. In addition, the Bar Harbor Public Golf Course is just 20 min. from the cottage.

It was our utter pleasure to stay in this lovely home. We usually vacation in Bar Harbor and wanted to try something a little quieter and we were not disappointed. We were able to have our morning in Acadia National Park hiking and then come back for a sleepy afternoon and, if we chose to, we could return to Bar Harbor for dinner. Hancock Point is gorgeous and the location of this house cannot be beat. We were right across from the water where a small dock welcomed fishermen daily and we were able to buy fresh fish and lobster right out our front door. Our children loved biking around Hancock Point with the breezes and water on one side and gorgeous homes on the other. Hancock Point is all residential so it is very quite yet we did not have to compromise on elegance and excellent food since the Crocker House Inn is literally around the corner. We strolled to the Inn for a sumptuous dinner just as the sun was setting and walked home with flashlights which was thrilling for our children and for us grownups as well. The home was cozy, yet very roomy with five bedrooms, a great room and an excellent, well stocked kitchen. Though the cottage is a bit rustic every room was well appointed and very clean. The value cannot be better - we had everything we needed for an excellent price. The location was superb, we were able to make it to Bar Harbor for our traditional breakfast in town with no trouble at all. But best of all are the night breezes off the water, the sounds of the bay, the literal whisper of the pines in the night time quiet ... We will definitely come here again, especially when we want a vacation that is quiet but close to it all and for the value, this home is just perfect.

Just beautiful!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The cabin was perfect for us; clean, comfortable, very close to area attractions, we had everything we wanted. The cabin/area was cozy and quiet though steps away to the warf where fishermen and sailors came and went. We dropped our lines in right there and bought lobsters from the incoming lobstermen! We had excellent customer service from the owner, he was accommodating to our schedule which made our trip planning come together perfectly. I truley appreciated that and would highly recommend this cabin for your stay!
