About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 10--14

NOT ACCEPTING BOOKINGS FOR 2017 YET: Please check back after 23 January.
Spacious house in Hancock Point summer community, right on Frenchman Bay with shared private beach, looking across to the mountains of Acadia National Park. Quiet location, yet only 20-minute drive to Ellsworth for groceries and shopping, walk to the Crocker House or drive 10 minutes to Salt Box or Chester Pike's for excellent food. Public dock, tennis courts and a library all within walking distance.

We’ve been lucky enough to spend summers here for nearly sixty years—we hope you will love it as much as we do. It’s not a modern house (although the kitchen is), it’s old and comfortable and a bit worn in places, but it’s clean, light and airy and the location is idyllic.

Please note that if you use "instant quote", or try to pay using the website: you will be charged a substantial fee by VRBO, which we don't get: If you are happy to trust us and pay a reduced rate by check as dozens have in previous years, just email us at llc@hppllc.org with your details.
