Charming waterfront location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful vacation. The house was just as described. Its very nicely furnished with incredibly comfortable accomodations. It was so nice and relaxing even with the rain some days. We hiked a few times and went for a long kayak tour on another day. We enjoyed going into Bar Harbor, but the Crocker House was just excellent, and so charming. But spending time just looking out at the ocean was nice too. You have a beautiful location there, it was really peaceful and quiet. We really enjoyed the lovely private patio...away from it all.









Thanks again!

Pretty, Relaxing, Peaceful and Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I were searching for a quiet home with modern amenities ocean front to enjoy our vacation. This home fit our search 110%.

As we were driving toward our destination with anticipation, we were so happy to see the location was down a less traveled road and the home was facing the bay with a spectacular unobstructed view of the bay.

When we arrived, we parked right in front of the house. We noticed the pretty garden arbor and the colorful mums at the entrance. As we walked through the arbor and into the patio, we found the area to be relaxing and secluded with other colorful potted flowers, a patio set, a brand new gas grill and sliding door leading into the open 1st floor of the home. But before entering the home, we gasped at the pretty view of the bay with the homes nestled in the woods around it and the few boats in the water. We walked to the edge of the property and looked down at the rocky beach area as the tide was out and thought... how perfectly beautiful!

When we entered the home, it was very clean and had a beautifully open floor plan. There were several full sliding doors and bay windows on the 1st floor which provided gorgeous views of the bay. We had the windows opened most of the visit and enjoyed the fresh breeze off of the bay. Surprisingly, you would think there would be a fishy odor since the home is situated on the bay, but there was absolutely no odor at all. It was enjoyable to see the tide come in and out each day. When the tide was out, we walked on the beach area and collected shells and smooth rocks.

The upstairs bedroom was dreamyyyyyyy. It was huge with several sliders and a bay window along with a pretty sitting area with 2 small comfortable chairs with a glorious view to sit, enjoy your coffee and watch the sunrise in the morning.

The master bath was extra roomy with a very large stand up shower with seats AND a jetted corner tub for a relaxing bubble bath!

During our stay, we enjoyed the patio set, grilled delicious steaks which we purchased at the Shaw's in Ellsworth and then relaxed in the Adirondack chairs watching the fire in the fire pit overlooking the

bay.

We drove to Bar Harbor, the Acadia Park Loop and the quiet side of the area during our visit. We also enjoyed some local meals along with cooking in the modern and fully functional kitchen at the home.

Fantastic!!!

Wonderful Place and LandLord!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with beautiful scenery and a superb view! The house was well maintained and clean. We had one issue with the smoke alarm which was addressed immediately by Volunteer Fire Dept, neighbors sent by Landlord where we met a local lobster Fisherman whom we purchased a fresh caught lobster and whom gave us great advice on how to cook our first Lobster which was delicious!! I highly recommend this place as you will love it!

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a wonderful stay at the Hancock house. This is our 3rd time to Maine and 2nd time staying in one of Judy's rentals. The house is in a perfect location close to everything from Bar Harbor, to Ellsworth (shopping), to Eastport. The house itself has amazing views and walking the beach every morning for treasures was a treat. The house has everything you would want for a relaxed vacation. The house was very clean and tidy. The only issue we had was that the wifi would not work despite Judy and I trying to get it working but honestly it was nice to "unplug" for a while and focus on our family and our surroundings. We hope we are able to stay again soon as we already miss being there. You could not ask for a better person to rent a house from. Any questions or concerns you have Judy is always prompt to respond and address any concerns. Thank you Judy again for sharing your little peace of heaven with us.

Breathtaking Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, light, airy home with a stunning view, spotless and well maintained! Breathtaking sunrises and sunsets seen from the master bedroom and living room to be enjoyed with the gentle lull of the waves and ocean breeze. The property owner Judy was friendly, courteous, and very attentive leaving us with many useful tips on local eats and activities. Call Babe for fresh lobster and make a point of buying the 7 day pass for Acadia National Park. Be sure to hit Cadillac Mountain Peak and Sand Beach, they're unforgettable! Stop in the charming town of Bar Harbor for ice cream (lobster flavor if you dare!) and shopping. If you're looking for natural beauty and tranquility this is the place to stay. We hope to be back next year!

Amazing Place, Lovely Home, Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be better. It's a peaceful place with a gorgeous view.

We were four adults, two children, a baby, and a puppy. This home was perfect for us. It had everything we needed.

First of all the house was spotless, very clean and well maintained. The kitchen has everything you need, if you decide to cook. The master bedroom view is just out of this world. In our time there my daughter wanted to stay in the master bedroom all the time in the rocking chairs enjoying the view. At night, in my case I really enjoy the sounds of the waves when falling asleep.

The owner Judy was amazing from the begin to the end. She checked on us and gave us excellent tips from kayak rental to where to buy fresh lobsters for an inexpensive price.

Acadia National Park is a MUST to go. it is about 25 min from the house. It cannot be seen in one day. I recommend to buy the 7 days pass for cars ($25.00). This way you can drive through the park anytime during 7 days.

If you are traveling with kids and plan to cook, don't take a lot of thing with you because there is a Walmart a short drive from the house.

Bar Harbor is beautiful small city where you can buy great gifts and have the best ice cream.

Maine is a perfect place to visit if you want to escape from a busy city life.

Thank you Judy you are incredible! We loved your home and the time we spent there. Hopefully we can come back next year.
