We are located in Hancock, Maine, halfway between Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park at Schoodic Point. The secluded location is close to the village of Hancock in an excellent area for a vacation with hiking biking, kayaking and berry picking. Step out the door and take a peaceful, ten-minute walk to Jellison Cove on Frenchman's Bay or explore the nearby woods and fields.

Enjoy the beauty of coastal Maine. Bike to the Frenchman Bay Nature Conservancy where you can hike, kayak, or picnic. Take a ride around the point and see the wonderful old historic houses, visit the library and Carter's Beach, all here on the point.

Drive to nearby Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island (40 minutes) or to Acadia National Park on Schoodic point (about 25 minutes in the opposite direction) and enjoy the quintessential Maine coastal villages along the way. Shop or go to the movies in Bar Harbor (45 minutes) or Ellsworth (20 minutes).

The little town of Hancock, Maine boasts some fabulous fine dining restaurants (Crocker House, Le Domaine), and several more modest restaurants with great local and ethnic offerings. Or just eat in on the cottage's covered porch and enjoy a peaceful evening watching the sun set and listening to bird song.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I live Hancock Point, on the 7 acre property pictured here, with my partner Randy. Hancock Point is a peninsula that is almost an Island if you look at the map. The ocean is not far away in any direction. We live in my farmhouse in the winter and in my cottage, Sunflower Cottage in the summer, where visitors can find me most of the time if they need me. I work as a Spanish interpreter for hospitals and clinics (in addition to renting, maintaining and cleaning the cottages and farmhouse!). Randy and I garden and maintain the property together and we really enjoy having people from other parts of the country, and even the world, come here and experience the beauty of the place we get to live in all the time.

Why the Owner Chose Bass Harbor:
This is a unique place. You can come here to unwind and enjoy nature, but you will not be far away from all the attractions of Bar Harbor and livelier venues. We are situated between Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island and the other less well known, but incredibly beautiful part of Acadia on Schoodic Point at Winter Harbor. This allows visitors to easily spend time in both spots while enjoying an accommodation that is a little lower priced than those in Bar Harbor. The property is also near the Public Reserve Lands at Donnell's Pond, which are as beautiful as Acadia and less well known. If you hike up Schoodic Mountain in the middle of the week and then finish up at the beach on for a swim, you will think you have found heaven on earth and you won't be sharing it with very many people if any. Randy and I really enjoy what we do and we want you to have a great experience here and are willing to do whatever is needed to make that happen.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This large property includes 2 cottages and a farmhouse, so if you are having a family reunion or just want some privacy when traveling with family, you can rent two cottages and or the farmhouse. Many big families have enjoyed this option. We've had afternoon softball games in the field and big cookouts on the farmhouse deck at night. The only downside for me is that I sometimes have to return misplaced pots and dishes, left in the wrong cottage, after those big family dinners!
