Perfect place to stay while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park! Owners very accommodating and our cottage was just right for us. Ten minute drive to downtown. Just perfect to avoid the crowds. Will definitely be returning every year!!!!

My husband and I recently stayed here with our pug. We stayed in Cottage 10 and found it to be a perfect fit for us. The price was extremely reasonable, the room was extremely clean, the bed was very comfortable, lots of TV channels, free WiFi, refrigerator with freezer, full bathroom, AC, and dehumidifier, basically everything you would need at...

Perfect accommodation for any length of stay. I was delighted to see a kitchenette and shopped immediately for a nice breakfast to cook in our room! No frills or pretentiousness, under the trees, quiet and ensconced away from rt 3. Deer walk through the woods as you wash dishes and look out the window. The beach is a short walk...

This property is average at best. The rooms are small and very outdated. It isn't even that inexpensive. There are other properties very close to it that are just as inexpensive. The staff is not very responsive and the units are in great need of repair.

We loved staying at Hanscom's! We were looking for a pet-friendly location to go on vacation and we were glad we choose this place! The room was immaculate and the staff was super friendly and accommodating to our pooch. Perfect location outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor. If you are looking to head downtown, the Island...

For us, taking a family vacation means traveling with 3 dogs. Things get complicated. We are very grateful for establishments like Hanscom's that allowed us all to stay and was also clean and comfortable. We didn't have to mess about with a checkin process; employees were busy cleaning and we could just let ourselves into the room. We stayed a...

Wanted a simple, inexpensive, pet friendly spot to spend the night with our two standard poodles while checking out Acadia. Our room, 11, was spotless, with homey bed linens and good frig/ freezer combo. If you want a hotel, stay in a hotel. Hanscoms offers a bit of old Maine with updated options. But bring your own hair dryer.

Having a pet and needing a place to stay in busy Bar Harbor was so much easier with our stay at Hanscom Cottages. We could not have been more pleased with the little cottage that the bed was comfy, a little kitchenette and everything was clean. I believe my pet was $10 more. We brought the dog bed with us...

We just spent a week at Hanscom's and had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was clean and cozy, nice and warm when the weather turned cold and rainy. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. It's a very quiet area this time of year but towns and shopping are very close. It was exactly what we needed....

My husband and I stayed at Hanscom's for a few days. Jennifer was very helpful and friendly. She told us things to do in the area. She let us know that if we needed anything just give her a call. We liked that they accept pets since we like to travel with our dog.

“Stay in the rooms on the ends like 12 & 11 if you want a quieter room, or the individual Cottages if you want a bit more privacy.”
