About Wanda Pinkham
Bill is a small business owner and has always shown an interest in Maine's beautiful waterfront properties. We thought building rental cottages would not only be a good investment but they would allow us to enjoy them as well. We have built two cottages since 2004 and have met wonderful people from all over. This is a great way to invest but also enjoy along the way.
Wanda Pinkham purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Wanda Pinkham chose Hancock
Bill and I love this property with the bold ledge surrounding the bay. We purchased this parcel of land overlooking Taunton Bay after much thought about creating a design for our cottage which would allow the natural surroundings to remain. The design allowed the ledge to remain unscathed; we built around it. The basement boasts the cool, grey ledge and is a great addition to the room

This was a perfect setting to vacation with family. There was plenty of private space without sacrificing a cozy open concept common area. The kitchen is well stocked to allow you to have dining options to manage your budget. We were able to easily access Acadia and then come back at the end of the day to peaceful cove surrounded by wild blueberries. Wanda and Bill were very responsive and offer an immaculate, well-maintained property. I highly recommend this property!
Lovely stay near Acadia
Wanda provided us with a lovely stay. Check in was easy and communication was clear. The house is spectacular with lovely views. Each room is clean and spacious. Our children loved sleeping in the loft. The adults each had very comfortable rooms.
House was very clean and was even better than the pictures on the site. It had everything we needed and lots of room for the 7 of us. About a 35 min drive to the visitor center for Acadia National Park. The only downside was the mosquitoes in the evening so we could not enjoy the deck in the evening, but we took advantage of the beautiful bay views in the morning with our coffee.
Thank you for taking time to post about your stay at our home. Happy to hear you enjoyed it and so sorry about the mosquitos! I wish I had control of Nature...I would banish them! Also thank you for taking great care of our home. Wanda and Bill
Perfect private retreat
Beautiful spacious house with amazing views. The house was sparkling clean with so much space for the 5 of us. The location was great...so private and just about a 30 min easy drive to Acadia. Wanda was an attentive host and made sure we were comfortable and happy. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to friends and would love to stay there again!
Beautiful house. Beautiful view.
This house was really very clean and working with the property manager was super easy. The views from inside and outside the house were lovely. Some mosquitos to deal with but being Minnesotans we managed. 😊 Everything was comfortable and we had anything we needed. It’s near to the town of Ellsworth where we could eat or get any supplies. It’s a great launching point to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park where we spent a lot of our time. I highly recommend this house.
Very nice and relaxing
Property was spacious and clean. More than enough space for 4 people. Well equipped kitchen
Start your days picking wild blueberries, August and September only, for your very own muffins, cereal or pancakes. Just a quick jaunt off from the deck will land you in the blueberry bushes atop the bold ledge. Spend your days exploring Maine's coastal towns or visit Mount Desert Island with its many villages and Acadia National Park. Opportunities are endless, including whale watch trips, boat rentals, fishing, swimming, kayaking, shopping, tennis or make use of the many hiking trails. Ellsworth is only seven minutes away, where you will find a variety of shops and stores. However, country stores are nearby for all your basic needs. Our cottage is the perfect center point to begin your exploring regardless of your destination. We are approximately 30 minutes away from Bangor, Blue Hill, Bucksport, Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Milbridge or Cherryfield.
