Where the new Maine begins!
Where the new Maine begins
Tucked away on the Peninsula of Hancock Point, The Crocker House Country Inn was built in 1884 and underwent extensive renovations in 2022. Open 10 months a year Its quiet, off-the-beaten-path location, fine dining, cocktail bar, stone patios, and 11 simple cozy guestrooms, make the Inn a relaxing home away from home. Surrounded by Acadia National Park and Frenchman Bay in DownEast Maine it offers a fantastic array of sights, hikes, cycling, boat trips, and nature walks where wildlife abounds. Hancock Point is a small summer community, rich with history. Within short easy walks are an octagonal summer library, the second smallest post office in the United States (no longer operational), a 100+ year old summer chapel, four clay tennis courts, rocky beaches, sunrise and sunset views, and the town dock.
The Crocker House is best known for its cuisine. Breakfast is reserved for Inn guests 7 days a week from 7:45 AM, but is now open to the public (reservations only) on weekends. Summer also offers champagne brunch on Sundays following the local chapel service. The two dining rooms are open from 5:30 PM to the Inn guests and the public on weekends in the Spring and late Fall and seven days a week in the Summer and early Fall. The entrees are prepared to order with breads, soups, and desserts prepared in our new kitchen expanded and upgraded in 2022. Weather permitting, we also offer seating on the outside stone patios. To complement the meal we offer an extensive wine and local micro-brewed beer list as well as a fully-stocked bar that now offers seating and appetizers for those just wanting a cocktail and nibble. Reservations are highly recommended.
While the Crocker House does not overlook the water, we are surrounded by it on three sides by Frenchman Bay and the Skillings River. On Hancock Point all roads lead to the water! Moorings can be reserved by guests arriving by water.
