Very nice. Lots of room. Great amenities with games, movies, kayaks. We would choose to stay here again if we have the opportunity.
Lovely coastal vacation spot
Fabulous week in Hancock!! We enjoyed our stay with our extended family (6 adults, 3 teenagers, and 4 children). The house had plenty of room for us all. The bedroom on the main level and full bath on the main level was perfect for the grandparents in our midst. Access to the 5 kayaks was a highlight as well as the close proximity to Acadia. The kitchen was well equipped including plenty of dishes, silverware, cooking utensils and cookware. We cooked every dinner in the home with the sunset over the sound in the view- lovely! We had an unusually HOT week. The window fans available in the house were helpful though it would have been great to have at least one per bedroom. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels for our big group. Our only suggestion is to add lamps to the bedside tables as we are a family of readers and wished for bedside lighting. Thanks for a great week and we hope to return someday.
We loved this house. It is about halfway between Acadia and the schoodic.It fit our large party well
We had 6 adults and 8 kids, and there was room for more. The house is bigger than the photos. It was very nice and clean. Shawn was very quick to respond to any concerns or questions during our stay.
What we loved... the kids enjoyed the kayaks, and the views of the bay were beautiful. The house has tons of dvds and games for the family. There was plenty of room.
Our reservations... (but we loved our stay) we were there at the end of July and it was unusually hot and humid for the area. Unfortunately there wasn’t ac. Also, it wasn’t clear, but the kayaks are shared with another property the is between this house and the water. To be clear, there were five kayaks and life vests, and there was never a time that we couldn’t use them.
This house was great for our family, and we appreciate the stay. Thanks Shawn!
Fourth of July 2018
We spent the Fourth of July week at this lovely home. Plenty of room for all 14 of us to spread out. We had trouble finding a home that would accommodate all of us; this home did that and then some! The theater room was a major hit along with helping to keep our youngest toddlers contained and out of trouble. The older kids loved the closet with endless choices for board games. We loved the location. Hancock is really close to a town called Ellsworth that had several choices for groceries and the drive into Bar Harbor was not bad at all. We used the shuttle a couple of times(interesting with 14 of us!) One of our last exploring days, we headed out to Schoodic peninsula which was only a half hour drive from the house. Incredibly beautiful! Just wish we had spent more time investigating that area. Another trip, maybe, would certainly stay at this lovely house if given the opportunity again.
Great value and spacious for family of 16
We had our family reunion in Maine and were limited on housing options for a family of 16 (9 adults and 7 kids). We came across this property and could not have been happier. It exceeded our expectations. The house was very spacious and there was plenty of room for everyone to eat, sleep, play, and relax. There was room for kids and adults to run and play outside, as well as access to the bay for tidepooling and kayaking. We sent the owner a couple of texts with questions and he was very prompt in responding. Would definitely stay here again if we have a large group visiting the area and have already recommended the property to several of our friends who have been thinking of vacationing in Maine.
Thank you! We are happy you enjoyed the house.
Very spacious house, able to accommodate our party of 12 people
Plenty of space that allowed people to be together or get some privacy. Large kitchen counter that was great for cooking the large meals. Quiet property on water. Would definitely reserve this again for a large family gathering.
Located in a central location just minutes away from almost any type of activity. Acadia national Park and the famous Bar harbor is only 25 minutes away, The reversing falls at Tidal falls is only 5 minutes away,come watch one of the largest reversing falls in New England while you eat a lobster or a crab roll. Shopping centers are 10 minutes away where you can shop in Downtown Ellsworth. Waterparks and fun Parks are all within 15 minutes where you can ride the go Karts or go down the waterslides, great kid entertainment. Golf courses are located all over. Your choice of 7 all within a half hour of your vacation house. Take a ride around Schoodic point and watch the fisherman on their lobster boats or the waves crash against the rocks, even take picnic lunch and enjoy the parks picnic areas.
