Description from owner
This cozy cottage on wonderful Hancock Point offers a beautiful view of Mount Desert from the cottage or from its beach. The beach, one of the best on the Point, offers giant rocks for sitting and a large expanse at low tide for seeking beach glass or sunbathing, as well as a "bath tub" that nature built nestled in the big rocks -- great for little children to dip their feet in.
The cottage itself, with it's high ceiling and loft, feels open and friendly. The large living room with beautiful views gives onto a sunporch, great for watching for lobster boats and enjoying meals.
There are two bedrooms downstairs, both with double beds, as well as two double beds in the loft, a favorite area with kids. The bathroom with it's original claw foot tub is modern and bright. The kitchen is well equipped and functional.
The. cottage can be rented for a minimum of one week.
Beds: 4 Double Beds, 1 Twin Bed

“Perfect Maine coast experience”
The cabin was a delight and we didn't want to leave. Comfortable, cozy, surprisingly roomy. In rain and shine this was a beautiful spot to spend time on the coast of Maine. Well equipped kitchen, inviting spaces, and an unsurpassed view of Mt. Desert Island from the charming sunroom overlooking Frenchman Bay. We will come back to this spot if we get the chance.
“Idyllic, Beautiful, Invigorating & Refreshing”
The sound of the Atlantic against the rocks was wonderful both to go to sleep to and waking in the morning. The rocks provided a perfect perch for a cup of tea and breakfast and the most beautiful morning viewing. The house was lovely it had a clean fresh smell when walking into it and decorated tastefully and sympathetically to suit the property's character and age. It had a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. A perfect last week's stay to a three week holiday in the USA. Thankyou. We would happily return again.
“Rustic but beautiful location”
The location is superb- full on view of the Acadia mountains. Hancock Point is a very special place, where we have vacationed each summer. The cabin is rustic but comfortable. The only lack from my point of view is a comfortable place to sit and watch the ocean- take your own lawn chairs/chaise lounge. The front porch is small and there is no deck. The beach is wonderful and offers a good place to hang out at low tide. it's not there at high tide.
"Memorable trip" that was how our 16 year old grandson from California described his stay at this quaint, comfy cottage on Hancock Point. The views of bay and Cadillac Mountain are spectacular. The access to the water is fun. The beach space in front is one of the best on the Point. We were able to land our kayaks out front and stop for lunch. Cottage is quaint looking and furnished with comfortable beds and furniture. Kitchen has large fridge and plenty of dishes, utensils, etc to make eating in just as enjoyable as going out. Having washer / dryer saves trips to laundromat and makes packing easier. Loft sleeping area was warm on 90+ degree days, but cooled off nicely with normal temperatures and fans. Plenty of space for kids to spread out and have their own area up there. This is a most enjoyable area and a terrific place to stay to experience the peacefulness and beauty of Hancock Point.
What a lovely cottage on a BEAUTIFUL point with the ocean in the back yard and a view of Acadia in the distance. Intoxicating ocean breezes and the sound of surf made this a standout 9 days. Hancock Point is a great place to walk with beautiful Maine coast scenery - sailboats in harbor, misty mornings, nice homes and cottages. Its a great spot and easy drive to Ellsworth and under an hour to Bar Harbor for shopping and restaurants. The cottage itself has good energy and is comfortable. The ocean ambiance and location couldn't be better. Definitely a memorable time.
“Heavenly and comfortable”
This is a somewhat rustic cottage in a charming, low-key oceanfront community. It has a gorgeous view, even better than the pictures here. The house is not high-end but has all the essentials and is very comfortable and cozy. It's "just right." I've rented it several summers and only wish I could do so again this year.
This property is a real cottage. It's not fancy or equipped with high-end amenities. Rather, it is a step away from the hustle and chaos of urban, professional life. The view is spectacular. The wind wafts through the open windows scented with the salt and pine aromas that permeate the Point. It is the southern most house on the point and it is beautiful. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen more than adequate. If you are lucky, the fish man will deliver to your door. Tennis and sailing opportunities for children and adults alike are within walking distance. The ocean rises and falls, lapping gently and invitingly at the cliff base. It's cold but you can swim in the crystalline waters if you are brave. Dogs are welcome and enjoy lazing in the sun, chasing chipmunks and insects, swimming and walking. The community is present in a friendly and open way. We will definitely be returning.
Owner's reply: I think this review pretty much captures the essence of our cottage.
