Serene, quiet, rustic log cabin just a few steps away from the shore and amazing sunrises
For solo or couple travelers looking for a serene, quiet, and cozy place to be, this rustic log cabin is ideally situated on Hancock Point on a dead end road. Nestled into woodlands with a sliver view to the sea, the small cabin faces gorgeous sunrises and moonrises over Frenchman Bay. Walk just a few steps down the grassy drive to the uninhabited shore and search for seashells or watch gulls, double-crested cormorants, eider ducks, and black guillemots. With views to Mount Desert Island, this off the beaten track locale is a great base camp for exploring the breathtaking Schoodic Peninsula and Acadia National Park. Or take a kayak tour a few minutes away at Aquaterra Adventures. Highly recommended for those seeking simplicity, solitude, and a back to nature country experience.
Thank you for describing your experience in such nice terms; this is exactly the experience I would hope for all my visitors.
Perfect for a quiet retreat near the water!
We really enjoyed staying at the log cabin by the sea and recommend it highly!
log cabin on the Point
This was perfect for our needs. The picture doesn't do justice to this quaint little log cabin on Jelllison Cove. The log cabin is the bedroom, with interesting log beams and walls. The place is clean and clearly loved. The kitchen is adequate for two people for breakfast and lunch, and capability for dinner, though we didn't use it for that purpose. Not much of a view of the water, but we were out and about during the daytime.
Many thanks to these delightful guests.
A charming hideaway
We really enjoyed our stay. This log cabin has everything one needs for a truely relaxing vacation at Frenchman Bay. Highly recommended!
very peaceful ... even in the busy month of August
The cabin is very quiet and with a view of the sea. Very clean and comfortable. I enjoyed coffee each morning on the rocky beach with a lovely view of Cadillac Mountain. The owner made me feel very welcome and respected my privacy. Easy drive to Acadia's MDI and Schoodic. Plenty of restaurants in the area. I hope to go back next year.
I'm always pleased when someone enjoys the cabin as much as I have when I have stayed there.
Cozy log cabin steps away from the beach
My husband and I just returned from a week stay. We found the cabin to be very clean, and adorable! All the amenities one needs for a week long vacation on the coast. We were able to spend each day visiting Acadia NP (35 minute drive), and loved that we were only 25-30 minutes from the Schoodic Peninsula part of Acadia, simply beautiful, and much less crowded. We found the cottage to be the perfect little retreat after our adventures in the park. It was nice to have a hot shower and warm comfy bed each night. Beautiful location, a little off the beaten path, but lots of treasures nereby to be discovered (the tidal falls preserve is a wonderful picnic area, and the Frenchman Bay Conservatory maintains several short hiking trails close by). Not far from tasty dining options (highly recommend Ironbound, just a 10 minute drive), both in Hancock, and nereby Ellsworth. We would definatly recommend staying at Anne's log home, she is a kind and lovely host.
Thanks so much; it's always gratifying when someone enjoys the cabin.
