I do not enjoy writing a poor review on a small hotel that is trying to make it, but in this case I will make an exception, because they are not trying. Whatever is going on with the management of this hotel is hard to understand. Basically they do not care about their guests at all, no one was on... More

Booked the room via Chamber of Commerce. Very disappointed overall. Their idea of a kitchenette is a dorm fridge and microwave inside the front door. No hangers or place to hang your clothes... If you dont count the over the door hooks that we hung the wet towels on. The coffee maker came with ONE creamer per person. No ironing... More

This is the second year that we stay at Hanscom's. Just perfect for us. We travel with our two little Westies and they are very welcomed here. Bar Harbor and Acadia are both very dog friendly and the cottages are only about 1/2 mile from the entrance of Acadia. And you can't beat the value.

I've stayed at Hanscom's every season of the year and I can assure you that no matter the season, a stay at Hanscom's will be wonderful! The rooms are clean and comfortable and depending on which cottage you rent, they come with a stove top, microwave, refrigerator, and all utensils, too! And they even have WiFi! AMAZING! The rooms really... More

Neat, clean room with everything we needed in it. Very roomy. Plenty of room for two adults and two med.-sized dogs. Loved the little Keurig coffee machine. It isn't within walking distance of town, which would have been nice, but we knew that when we reserved. Only negative about the room is the tiny shower. I'm 5'1 and my elbows... More

Spent 3 nights with my husband. We are couple in mid 40's who enjoy the outdoors. Room was amazingly clean. Bed comfy and topped with a homey quilt. Kitchen had everything. Love that they recycle! Worried when we arrived that may be loud since had adjoining room but never heard the neighbors. WiFi was a little spotty but owners reset... More

We stayed in cabins 6 & 7 and I cannot grumble about anything. My in-laws visiting from England loved the place. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean. I agree that the mattress and pillows were somewhat hard but, nothing beats your own bed so, when on vacation, you take what you get. The staff were extremely accommodating. We asked... More

My dog, my husband, and I just spent a week in cabin 10. PROS: The cabin was centrally located. We were close to Bar Harbor and Acadia and the street next to the cabin made for a nice walk each morning with our dog. However, the beach at the end of the road is covered in only rocks, some with... More

The cabins were clean, if not the most spacious! The Hanscomes are very nice. We got the lobster bake one night & it was great. The beach is a block or two down the road- about a 5 minute walk. You had to climb down to it, but everyone in my family (from 9yo kids to 78yo grandparents) was able... More

The cottages here are simply adorable! Clean well maintained grounds. The pool is a pleasant place to relax. The grills and patio tables make a nice touch. The kitchenettes are fully stocked so all you need to do is supply your food! A short walk up the road, about 1/2 mile, takes you to the beach. The ocean is way... More
