About the Property

Spacious, 4 Bedroom, 2 bath, modern log cabin with fireplace and views. Sleeps 8

Kilkenny Cottage is located off Route 1 in the historic town of Hancock. Close to Hancock Point and half way between the magnifient Schoodic Point (Schoodic section of Acadia National Park) and the main entrance of Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor.
While visiting the Schoodic peninsula, get up close to the crashing surf of the rocky coast, like no other place in Maine.

A coastal Maine vacation includes both of these breathtaking locations where you can enjoy hiking, kayaking, sailing Frenchman Bay, biking, bird watching, Nature cruises, Carriage Road, golf and many more activities.
Downeast Maine is a vibrant place for the arts, including many galleries, museums, studios and shops. There are many exhibits, concerts and performances throughout the summer and fall months in most every village and town.

Enjoy the Schoodic Scenic Byway: 29 miles in length and travels through the nearby communities and on to the the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park. You will witness unspoiled landscapes that makes this part of Acadia truly 'The way life should be'! You will see lobster boats, lighthouses and many islands.


Bar Harbor is home to the main part of Acadia National Park with several entrances on Mount Desert Island (MDI). Enjoy the 49,000 acres thanks to the dedication and philanthropy of many wealthy, private citizens (Charles Elliot, George Dorr and John D. Rockefeller Jr.)
This is the only National Park in the Northeast, and Cadillac Mountain boasts the first place to see sunrise in the U.S.
Enjoy the 27 mile Park Loop Road either by car or several tours (which are fantastic!) See the oceanside cliffs, forests, Thunderhole, Sand Beach and much more. Enjoy 130 miles of hiking trails for every level of endurance.

Discover the many local villages and towns on MDI and surrounding areas which include Ellsworth, The Blue Hill Peninsula, Castine, Stonington and so much more.

We invite you to visit our area and stay at Kilkenny Cove Cottage where you will enjoy a 4 bedroom, 2 bath, comfortable, spacious log cabin on the waters of Kilkenny Cove. Enjoy the front deck overlooking gardens and nature or lounge or dine on the back deck where you can enjoy a screened porch or open area and look down the rolling lawns towards Kilkenny Cove with magnificent views of the mountains of Acadia National Park. Watch birds and nature happen right before your eyes. A large living/dining room or quiet den allow even a big family places to have plenty of room to enjoy.
This is a fantastic place to kayak or canoe as the waters are calm and gentle. Swim, fish and play in your private cove. Watch the dramatic tides come and go.
Kilkenny Cove Cottage is a great place to bring your family as there are several private acres of lawn to fly kites, play ball, run and play. Launch your kayak right from waters edge and enjoy the coast and all its beauty. (We can arrange kayak rentals for you)
Enjoy your meals from the sunny porch (screened or open) and watch your cares go by. Relax, unwind and welcome to Maine!

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Hancock, ME, USA:
This property has historical significance as the Maine Central Railroad railbed was down 'Clark Road' and was active from 1870 - 1931 and ended at a Ferry Terminal on Hancock Point, just a short distance from the cottage. Steamers then took the passengers on to MDI (Mount Desert Island) Among the notables who would have traveled on 'our road' were Vanderbilt, Pulitzer, Morgan, Rockefeller, Ford, Presidents Taft, and Harrison. Vanderbilt had a private car that was so long (73') that it couldn't fit on the turn-table on Hancock Point, so it was backed down to Providence, R.I. to be turned around to come fetch him when he wanted to leave Bar Harbor! There is still a right-of-way over Clark Road by the Maine Central Railroad Company in our legal description. Even though the rail tracks are gone, you can enjoy walking the grassy trails right down to the water. Come visit and stay where history was made!
