Crabtree Neck Cottages and Farmhouse
Cottage Rentals Between Mount Desert Island & Schoodic Peninsula, Hancock, Maine
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.
The cottages are new, 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 and a TV for watching movies. 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.
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 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.

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.
