Property Details

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

~ New Wirless Internet; Directv and free calling!

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".

Please e-mail for more pictues!

"Thank you for visiting our site!" Wanda & Bill

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

This year our vacation had to include one of the two states my wife had never visited. The choice was Maine or North Dakota. Hmmm…scenic Atlantic coastline or flat prairies sprinkled with intercontinental ballistic missiles? Pretty obvious which one got chosen.

After stopping along the way to visit New York City and Boston on the way from Virginia, we adults were ready for a peaceful vacation. When we arrived we thought that we might have turned into the wrong driveway—this looked like a model home, not a vacation rental built at least 10 years ago. The interior was spotlessly clean, all the furniture and appliances were new. It was almost as big as our home back in Virginia and the floor plan easily accommodated the interpersonal dynamics associated with two teenage girls and one ten year old boy.

The location was pretty close to perfect. The house is located in the middle of wild blueberries with a view of Egypt Bay. We got our first introduction to the tides watching the bay fill up and empty sitting on the deck of the house. From a logistics point of view, the house is close to Ellsworth where there is a Hannaford grocery store where you can buy almost anything edible you can think of; within reason. We only ate out once, the rest of the meals we prepared in the well equipped kitchen. From a vacation perspective, everything we wanted to do and see was within a reasonable drive: Acadia National Park all the way to Roosevelt Campobello International Park and Fundy Bay. We even found lakes with public access where we could fish and swim (the water in the lakes is A LOT warmer than that in the Atlantic). Of course there was geocaching, which included a number of hikes along the coast line with fantastic views of the ocean and peaceful forests. Of course it took us places we didn’t know about until we got there such as Thuya Gardens in Acadia. And then there was everyone’s favorite hike: Head Harbour Lightstation which can only be reached by walking across the bottom of Head Harbour at low tide off the tip of Campobello Island.

We used Home Away to find this and others in NYC and Boston. This one clearly takes the prize for the best value. Based on my limited experience with Home Away and VRBO I think this might be underpriced; but I’m certainly not complaining.

If we were to plan another trip to Maine, this would be the place we would book again. This is a great house in a great area.

Owners are very friendly and communicative, they really want you to have a great time. We arrived to find blueberry muffins, that was a wonderful treat after the long drive.

Although a little further from Acadia, it gave use a great chance to explore the Schoodic Peninsula. Shopping in Ellsworth is convenient too. We mostly cooked and ate at the cottage and the owners have provided equipment for grilling on the deck, as well as cooking lobsters.

In summary, this is a great place for a peaceful retreat. And it offers plenty of choices for day trips. We enjoyed a lot of day hikes in Acadia Park.

Our Maine retreat

  • 5 of 5
The blueberry cottage is a wonderful retreat. There is plenty of room for the entire family. The house is equipped with all the needs you need to have a great stay. The house felt like our home away from home. There is no air conditioner but the trade winds are cool and breezy at night so there are no need for one. The beds are very comfortable to sleep in. The view of the inlet is very nice. You are able to watch the tide come in and go out. First floor has bedrooms on the opposite end of the home, bed room in the lower floor as well as one in the upper deck. Lots of room. The Service they gave was great. The house is very well kept and maintained. They answered all the questions and needs we had. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. This cottage has easy access so my mother of 78 was able to go with us. Whale watching in Maine is great to go see, just remember to take a jacket. Pats pizza is a good place to eat. Enjoy Maine.

Blueberry Ledge cottage is the perfect retreat for a visit to the Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park area!! The cottage is very well appointed and has everything one might need to make your stay enjoyable. And if there is something it doesn't have, Wanda will go to almost any length to get what you need. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck enjoying the view after a full day of hiking in and around Acadia. (which is about a 30 minute EASY drive away) There's a lobster steamer on the deck which was great for steaming fresh lobsters and the cottage has all the utensils necessary for cracking and eating the delicious crustaceans. We found the cottage to be extremely clean, very comfortable and we are certain that you will too! Don't hesitate to book this rental ~ you won't be disappointed!!

Blueberry Ledge is the perfect home away from home! The cottage is well appointed and immaculate. The location is tucked away in a cove that provides peace and tranquility with amazing views. We enjoyed many days of hiking in Acadia National Park and sightseeing in and around "Bahaba" and Southwest Harbour. We felt so comfortable in the cottage that it was very hard to make ourselves go out and do things! We are looking forward to returning to Maine and know that there will be a "home" waiting for us with welcoming arms.
