Crabtree Neck Cottages and Farmhouse

Cottage Rentals Between Mount Desert Island & Schoodic Peninsula, Hancock, Maine


Blackberry Cottage
Our cozy, rustic pine cottages and farmhouse 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 Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park at Schoodic Point. 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.

Farmhouse
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.


Loft, Blackberry Cottage
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 and Carter's Beach, all here on the point.

Drive to nearby Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island (40 minutes) or to Acadia National Park on Schoodic point (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, Le Domaine), 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 and blackberries 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 Conservancy (see links at bottom). Tennis courts and sailing lessons are available not far from the cottage, by prior arrangement. A public beach, historic houses, and a quaint summer library are within easy biking distance.
