Five Cottages on Six Acres 

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. Treetop has a lovely view of the meadow from it’s deck and our newest addition, Sweetfern Cottage is at the far end of the property and overlooks everything. 

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.

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.

Sweetfern Cottage

Sweetfern Cottage is located 150 feet to the south west of Blueberry Cottage, almost at the end of the field, in a patch of fragrant sweetfern facing the blueberry field. It sleeps 2, or 4 with the pullout sofa in the living area, and it has a small but complete kitchen. The open porch is low to the ground with a ramp and the cottage is wheelchair friendly with no stairs and wider doors. Cars may be parked either at the Blueberry Cottage lot, or vehicles with good clearance may drive to the front entrance on the track through the field. The cottage is wheelchair friendly, though people with disabilities  should talk to me before requesting a reservation.

Adorable Airstream, available starting May 15

Our newest cottage is an adorable Airstream trailer, very much like the one shown here. It will be tucked in the woods across the field from the other cottages and it will include a deck with comfy chairs and a chimenea for outdoor fires. It will sleep 2 people or 3 in a pinch. It has a complete kitchen, indoor shower, and an eco friendly outdoor bathroom. Glamping at it’s best.

Surrounding Area Highlights

Lupine, nearby Jellison Cove in June

Enjoy the beauty of coastal Maine. Bike to the Frenchman Bay Nature Conservancy where you can hike, kayak, or picnic. Take a ride around the point and see the wonderful old historic houses, visit the library, the Famous Crocker House Restaurant, and Carter’s Beach, all here on the point.

Drive to the nearby Acadia National Park entrance in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island (45 minutes) or to Acadia National Park on Schoodic point in Winter Harbor (about 25 minutes in the opposite direction) and enjoy the quintessential Maine coastal villages along the way. 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 at home 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, by prior arrangement, not far from the cottage. A public beach, woodland trails, historic houses, and a quaint summer library are within easy biking distance.
