I have lived there most of my life an I completely love it there, it is a small town and you are on the coast so it is nice and cool most of the time.

Hancock is a very quiet little town. It hasn't got a lot of amenities, but it's right outside Ellsworth which is a small city. Generally it's not a bad place to live if you like small towns.
