George Crist purchased this House in 17
Why George Crist chose Hancock
I recently purchased this home to be enjoyed by you as a vacation rental. I chose this home and the location because after spending significant time in the area, I felt that this was the ideal location to be conveniently located to Acadia, but also close to the practical things you will need for your family during your stay. Incidentally, Acadia has two distinct areas...the Mount Desert side that everyone visits, but also the less-visited Schoodic Peninsula area and Winter Harbor.
What makes this House unique
This home is located right where it should be for enjoying all things in the Acadia and Bar Harbor area. Hancock and Ellsworth are beautiful little towns that offer charm, but also the practical things you will need for your stay such as real grocery stores. You'll find some really nice boutique grocery stores on Mount Desert Island, but the prices are super high and let's face it, you're here for a vacation that doesn't require a second mortgage.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This is an idyllic property conveniently located to Acadia Kayaks were a bonus
Even Better than Expected
We just came home from a week at this beautiful home - a delayed celebration of our 50th anniversary with both children and 3 of 4 grandsons. Prior to our arrival, the owner was very quick to respond with answers to my questions.
The setting is quiet, with any neighboring homes hidden by woods. The outside picture of the home with the listing should be replaced with the view of the home from the path below the grassy area. It better emphasizes al of the large windows which almost bring the outside in.
The furniture perfect for the living and dining rooms. The decor was exceptional. I'm not sure if I was renting out my home that I'd have so many neat things on my shelves!!
The kitchen was equipped with high end appliances, including Williams-Sonoma coffee maker and oversized toaster. In the cupboards were spices and other items that could be used to enhance what meals we chose to cook.
The house was a winner, but the outdoors won the grand prize. There was some grassy area that our grandsons could play soccer and some frisbie in the can games. Bocce would work too, but we forgot it! The stairs and pathway into the wooded area towards the water were easy to navigate. The Adirondack chairs overlooking the water were my favorite place to read while the rest of the group hiked in Acadia NP. The only negative (for me) was the very steep
(almost) cliff that you had to descend and ascend to get to the water or to use the kayaks. There was a rope to hang on to or pull up with. The other six were able to do this maneuver, but I chose not to attempt it. I enjoyed watching them kayak from those Adirondack chairs.
The home was spotless when we arrived. We met the woman who cleans when she came over to introduce herself and to discuss an issue from the week before with the gas grill. She also guided us to a man who could get fresh seafood for us. She also told us about the mamma bear and 2 cubs that were in her yard on Tuesday. Everyone (except me!) was disappointed that they didn't get to see them as well. On our last morning, a beautiful deer nibbled on the grass right by the edge of the woods and watched us through the large floor to ceiling window so we could take her picture!
A great week! Couldn't ask for more!! (Acadia was quite crowded with lots of parking lots full. Hint: head in to the park early- something we couldn't do with grandsons that liked to sleep in).
Thanks, George (and Geri)!!
Very enjoyable, easy access to all areas of the park and Bar Harbor. Found some nice short cuts around town, trust your GPS. 👍👍
Our first trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia N/P. 8 adults and 2 children had plenty of room and fun.
Lovely property. Easy to find, Very clean and efficient. Nothing you can do about the mosquitos!!
Absolutely amazing, the house, the views, the neighbors everything about our stay here was amazing. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home the house had everything you could imagine you would need on your trip from entertainment to kitchen supplies. The beds were comfortable and the view from every single window in the home was beautiful 10 stars! Will definitely be coming back
Great cottage with a great location
We stayed with a family group and all really enjoyed the cottage. The beds were new and very comfortable. The location was perfect for us with family in Ellsworth and Lamoine. We will definitely try to rent this location again. The owner was very responsive.
