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.

Just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent view, condition and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

It was an awesome escape. Everything is in there. By it looks it doesn't seem much but it is very carefully organized and feel like home decor. Bay view is 5 star. Only problem is finding the home is bit difficult if you are arriving at night. Neighbours and other people are also very welcoming. Take time to spend couple more days there only inside and relax.

Lovely, rustic cabin-like setting.

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful house with plenty of room for my family. We loved the fact the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The views were breathtaking in the morning.

Family fun at Hancock Point

  • 3 of 5

Just had our 3rd 2-2/2 week family stay at this somewhat rustic cottage. It is a great area and house for kids of all ages.

I have vacationed on the Point for 70 years and rented several old family places all with their own vagaries to work around. It's part of the experience.

It has been a great place to meet others at the waterfront and enjoy the view and activity around. There are very few rentals on that side of the Point. It may need some work on the outside but inside you feel welcome and can be at home without watching out for damage by energetic kids.

The owner has been more than helpful and easy to work with about scheduling and any problems. In general we have had fun times and would rent again but now have use of my mother's place around the Point.
