Evenings deliver spectacular sunset light shows, and clear nights reveal a spectacular tapestry of stars unlike anything you'll ever see in the light-polluted U.S. northeast corridor. The calm bay is home to bald eagles, harbor seals, kayakers and lobster fishermen.
Close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor but without the seasonal crowds, you will be 20 minutes from Mt. Desert Island, 30 from the Acadia entrance and 35 from downtown Bar Harbor. 25 minutes in the opposite direction is Schoodic Point, the less known and visited section of Acadia with iconic Maine ocean vistas and spectacular views of Mt. Dessert Island.

On the back lawn below the deck stairs, a fire pit and hammock overlook the bay. A large front lawn offers room for kids and pets to run and play. Long stairs take you to the rocky sand beach to wander, but if you bring or rent canoes or kayaks, easy beach access is available via the boat launch just down the beach.
Hancock is a small town but features three world-class restaurants – The Crocker House, Ironbound, and Chipper's. Hancock is also home to the Monteux School for Conductors which brings orchestra talent in training from around the world each summer, and offers twice weekly concerts during its 8 week session. There's also the world-famous, don't-miss Tidal Falls – a reversing tides channel connecting Taunton Bay to Frenchman's Bay. Pretty amazing – all are worth a visit!
