CrabTree Neck Cottages and Farmhous
Cottage Rentals Between Mount Desert Island & Schoodic Peninsula, Hancock, Maine
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. They are within easy walking distance of the shore.
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. 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 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, a twin size bed.
Both cottages sleep up to seven people, 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. The cottages are heated with a fireplace wood stove and firewood is provided for the fireplace. We cannot permit outdoor fires.

Shop or go to the movies in Bar Harbor (45 minutes) or Ellsworth (20 minutes).
The little town of Hancock, Maine boasts some fabulous fine dining restaurants (Crocker House, Ironbound Inn), and several more modest restaurants with great local and ethnic offerings. Or just eat in on the cottage’s covered porch and enjoy a peaceful evening watching the sun set and listening to bird song.

Pick Maine blueberries right outside your door in July and August. Bike rentals, kayak/canoe rentals (“see other info.” below), and guided tours are available nearby. For swimming, boating, hiking, and mountain climbing, visit Maine’s Public Reserve lands on pristine Donnell and Flanders ponds, and explore the Frenchman Bay Nature Conservancy (see links at bottom). Tennis courts are available not far from the cottage, by prior arrangement. A public beach, woodland trails, historic houses, and a quaint summer library are within easy biking distance.
For a larger accommodation, this charming 1890’s farmhouse is on the same property as, but separate from, the Cottages. Situated on a quiet country road, it borders on the Crabtree Neck Land Trust and Community Gardens on Hancock Point.
The house has 3 bedrooms, one with a back stairway, and two bathrooms. It sleeps 7 to 10 people. The farmhouse kitchen is fully equipped and has a wood stove. The renovated dining room in the old summer kitchen opens on to a large flower filled deck and huge back yard. There are fields and woods all around. Wi-Fi available.
