Thank you for viewing "Blueberry Ledge" on Taunton Bay in Hancock,
just 25 minutes to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Our cottage
is perfect for a quiet getaway. It sleeps four people comfortably or up
to six when using the loft bedroom which will accommodate an
additional two guests.
Enjoy privacy and comfort in this newly constructed cottage(2004). We have
put a lot of special care into this cottage. We hope you will come
and enjoy the peaceful surroundings as much as we do.
This new, 2500 square feet, three-bedroom cottage sleeps six. The
main floor includes a large master bedroom with queen bed and full
private bath. There is a large guest room with a queen bed; another
full bathroom;large foyer, full kitchen, dining area, and living room
with a granite fireplace. The Cottage has cathedral, native cedar
ceilings, floors are tile and hardwood(carpet in bedrooms)
The loft is complete with two twin beds and a cozy, tranquil space
perfect for reading or relaxing, overlooking the living room and bay.
The walk-out basement boasts full views of the bay as well. Along
with the view you will enjoy board games, cards, puzzles, books, or
peaceful moments awaiting the changing of the tide every six hours,
which offers a new and exciting view every day.
Each room is complete with large windows and sliding glass doors
opening onto a large, private deck overlooking the bay.
The home is located on a very private lot offering 600 feet of
rugged, bold, ledge frontage where the home sits on a point high above the
shore 75 feet from water's edge. There is easy access to the shore or
you may choose the lounge chairs high atop the point.
A heads up for parents with small children; although the ledge
frontage is beautiful, in places it is very steep and drops
dramatically into the bay.
Start your days picking wild blueberries, August and September only,
for your very own muffins, cereal or pancakes. Just a quick jaunt off
from the deck will land you in the blueberry bushes atop the ledge.
Spend your days exploring Maine's coastal towns or visit Mount Desert
Island with its many villages and Acadia National Park. Opportunities
are endless, including whale watch trips, boat rentals, fishing,
swimming, kayaking, shopping, tennis or make use of the many hiking
Ellsworth is only seven minutes away, where you will find a variety
of shops and stores. However, Country Stores are nearby for all your
basic needs. Our cottage is the perfect center point to begin your
exploring regardless of your destination.(We are approximately 30
minutes away from Bangor, Blue Hill, Bucksport, Bar Harbor, Southwest
Harbor, Milbridge or Cherryfield.)
If you need a break from the daily site seeing, cook your own lobster
on the deck with our outside steamer, or enjoy steaks and burgers on
the grill. These options let you enjoy your vacation to the fullest.
This delightful coastal community offers many dining opportunities as
well. We keep menus on hand to show the local "hot spots".

"Thank you for visiting our site!" Wanda & Bill
Wanda & Bill,
Thank you for everything! Blueberry Ledge was a wonderful place for our Honeymoon! The cabin has become like home in our short visit to Maine. We appreciate everything which made our stay that much more enjoyable.
Our favorite thing was the view of the bay each morning. We enjoyed watching the sunrise and the tide coming in. We also liked how the cabin is nestled between the trees; great for watching wildlife.
Besides our time at the cabin, we also made a few road trips (Vermont & Nova Scotia), sightseeing on Mt. Desert Island, antiquing at local shops and out to dinner at the local restaurants.
Thanks again and we look forward to returning for another stay.
