This spacious house in the Hancock Point summer community is located right on Frenchman Bay with shared private beach and features a lovely view of the mountains of Acadia National Park. The location is tranquil, yet only a 20-minute drive to Ellsworth for groceries and shopping. You can get the last minute essentials at Hancock Grocery in the “don’t blink your eyes” village of Hancock. You can walk to the famous Crocker House right on the point, or drive 10 minutes to Ironbound Restaurant or Chester Pike’s for excellent food.
Nearby are public dock, tennis courts and a charming summer 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. There are five main bedrooms, for 2 adults each, and one with a child bed and crib as well. Maximum occupancy is 14. Children welcome, no pets allowed. Non-smoking house.
Area activities include antiquing, beach-combing, bird watching, boating, scenic drives, searching for shells, walking on area hiking trails. There are kayak tours nearby and bicycles may be rented in Ellsworth. You can fish off the pier and hike in nearby Acadia National Park. You can swim in the ocean if you dare, or at Donnell’s Pond, Flanders or several places in the Public Reserve Lands of Maine.
Check-in is 3:00 p.m. and check out is 10:00 a.m.
