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 to climb down.
It's only a few miles from Bar Harbor, but the main road that you take to get into town is so busy that you wouldn't want to bike on it. There might be a back way- we never asked. Traffic into Bar Harbor was a kind of a pain (we were there at a peak weekend).
We ate the majority of our meals at the picnic tables at Hanscom's. They had 2 large tables and our party of 10 had enough chairs. They had 2 grills, which we made use of. We had gorgeous weather, so this was very enjoyable.
My nephews complained that the pull out couch in cabin 9 was uncomfortable, and the Hanscoms brought out a foam topper. My nephews said it was much better after that.
The pool was nice- the beach there is not a place you can swim.
I would recommend this place!
