Blackberry and Blueberry Cottages, and Treetop Loft

Blackberry Cottage, Hancock, Maine

Blackberry Cottage in May

Our cozy, rustic pine cottages are surrounded by forest and field on Hancock Point. Blackberry Cottage is tucked under the trees and Blueberry Cottage overlooks the pasture and blueberry field.

We are excited to announce the construction of our 4th cottage, for 1 or 2 couples. It will be called Sweetfern Cottage and hopefully, will be available late in the 2021 season. 

We are located in Hancock, Maine, halfway between the entrance to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island, and Acadia National Park at Schoodic Point in Winter Harbor. The secluded location is close to the village of Hancock in an excellent area for a vacation with hiking biking, kayaking and berry picking and the cottages are within easy walking distance of the shore. Step out the door and take a peaceful, ten-minute walk to Jellison Cove on Frenchman’s Bay or explore the nearby woods and fields. There are quite a few shorter, kid friendly trails right here on the point.  There is a lovely woods trail at the back of our property in the Crabtree Neck Land Trust.

The cottages sleep up to 7 people. They are fully furnished and provided with a simple and complete kitchen, a snug combination living dining area, two bedrooms downstairs, one with a double bed and one with two bunks, plus a large sleeping loft upstairs with a queen size bed, and a twin size bed.
Both cottages have large picnic tables on the covered porches, and are ideal for couples or families. A crib is available upon request. The cottages are equipped with gas grills on the porch. The bathroom has a combination tub shower.

We provide free Wifi. We will supply a radio, a television and DVD player for viewing movies, alarm clock, all bed linens and towels, gas grill, washer and dryer, ironing board and iron.

Treetop Loft Studio Apartment

Treetop Loft Studio Apartment

Our studio apartment is tucked up into the trees for privacy and overlooks the meadow. It is perfect for couples and can sleep 3 in a pinch. The kitchenette is equipped with a two burner hotplate, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and mini fridge; all you need to cook for two.

The studio apartment is above the garage, where there is a washer and dryer for your use. We supply all bed linens and towels. There is a portable gas grill. The studio is heated with a gas fireplace. Free WiFi.

If you get up early and quietly walk out onto the deck, you will see deer grazing in the field.

Treetop Loft is ideal for 2 and will sleep 3 people with the use of the convertible love seat/cot bed. Scroll down to see photos.

Sweetfern Cottage is Ready!

In a large patch of fragrant sweetfern, in the corner of the field, a new cottage is available. It is 150 feet away from Blueberry Cottage, and we have planted several trees between the two cottages to increase privacy in the future. Visitors may need to park at Blueberry Cottage and walk in (200 ft) unless disabled. There is a drivable track through the field but it can be muddy in wet weather.  Sweetfern, once you get to it, is wheelchair friendly, in that it is stairless, has a ramp and sufficiently wide doorways, but you must speak with me before renting it if you are disabled. It ideally sleeps two people but can accommodate 4 with the use of the pullout sofa in the living area. It has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, a full bath, and a small but functional kitchen. In July and August, blueberries can be picked right in front of the cottage.
