About Owner & Property Manager

We, Ryan and Ellen Sprague, built this beautiful home on Ledge Lane in 2011. We started clearing the land in 2010, and by May of 2011 we had blasted the ledge and poured concrete. Our builder Brad Hamor, started building our 30x50 ranch styled house the first of July. Four months later, the house was complete, the septic system was finished after that and we moved in on Thanksgiving day in 2011. We were so pleased it took such a short time. We hope you enjoy our dream home as much as we do.

Owner & Property Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Owner & Property Manager chose Hancock Point

This property is for you because it is private and secluded, but only 15-20 miles from Bar Harbor, Schoodic Point, Downtown Ellsworth Shopping, and even closer to many great places to eat.

At Sunset Ledge, you can bike, hike, and kayak at any time. Lounging at the private beach, sitting at the patio, grilling on the porch, whatever you wish, it is possible.

What makes this house unique

At Sunset Ledge you have your own private driveway to walk, run, or ride your bike on. There is a beautiful grassy path to the shore, where you can sit on the ledge or lay on the beach. It is easy to launch your kayak from and you have the whole Skilling's River to explore.

Lovely house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Ledge was the perfect getaway spot. Down a wooded lane to a cabin in the woods overlooking the water. Upon our arrival we went down to check out the beach when a bald eagle sailed by 30 feet from our faces. Awesome!

The house is like new with all modern conveniences, yet it has the comfy feel of a vacation cabin. The house was spotless, and the owner provided the necessary "little things" like paper towels and laundry detergent so we didn't have to go out and buy a thing.

We loved the location. The Hancock Penninsula is rural and wooded, and many of the old houses in the area have maintained the the original New England architectural details. This part of Maine hasn't been homogenized with big box stores and national food chains, so there's lots of local charm and flavor. There are varied restaurants ranging from fine dining to lobster pounds to ice cream shacks . There's even an authentic Jamaican joint in Ellsworth that serves up the real deal.

Sunset Ledge is a superb getaway!

A dream come true

  • 5 of 5

A slice of heaven on earth. Everything you could ever imagine for an amazing, unforgettable vacation. Beautiful, immaculate home filled with every necessity you could ever want. The beach is so magical, you will never want to leave. And to make it even more perfect, hosts Ellen and Ryan are attentive, caring, and wonderful people. If we are lucky enough, this will be our vacation home for many, many years to come.

A beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

A charming, nicely appointed and well equipped home from which to explore the area by day and in which to relax, prepare a satisfying meal of local veggies and seafood and pass the night under the star-studded sky.

Two thumbs-up to Ellen and Ryan!

Wonderful property. Quiet location on the water with beautiful sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

This property is as described. The pictures are 100% accurate. It is very well maintained and has everything you need. Ellen and Ryan were excellent hosts. We knew we could contact them if we had any issues and they would respond quickly and appropriately. I would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a home away from home when vacationing. The only caution I would give is when looking at the map you get a sense that you're not that far from the Bar Harbor area. You are about 30 miles away and it took us about 50 minutes of travel time each way. For us that was not a problem we enjoyed the peace and slower pace of being at the house. Wal Mart was only about 15 minutes away and was a bonus since we prepared many of our meals at the house. Bottom line this is a great place to stay when visiting this area of Maine.
