                                        Great home with ample deck space, a yard, and access to a dock. The dock is shared with the owner and their son who have their yacht and lobster boat there, respectively. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The photos give a fair representation of the home's amenities and condition.

                                        The first time we laid eyes on our cottage and the magnificent surroundings all we could do was stand there with our mouths open. Absolutely breathtaking. That was back in the 1990's. We came back 4 years in a row to Rockpoint at Hodgon Pond. Due to life, we couldn't go back for a while, but this year we made it a point to celebrate our anniversary where our hearts yearned to return. We weren't disappointed. We stayed at Ann's Point Cottages on Southwest Harbor. Margo Stanley is a very kind and gracious host. Our cottage was immaculate, comfortable,and we lacked nothing. No matter what you do or where you go in the area it's all good. If you love the ocean, forests and hiking this is the place for you. If you love small villages with friendly people, this place is for you. If you want to get away to do nothing and escape the hustle and bustle of life, this place is for you. We highly recommend any cottage that the Stanley's own. Every one is strategically located for privacy and beauty. One of us has the habit of crying on the day of departure every time. We plan on returning,if possible, every year.

                                        My experience was wonderful staying here! I stayed here twice and both times the houses were clean and well stocked. Swimming and canoeing in the pond were icing on the cake! The only downside is that there is a minimum stay of 5 or 7 days during busy season, which was hard for me because I only wanted 2 or 3 days, but it is completely understandable from a business perspective. The last time I stayed I was able to meet Margo, the owner, and she was lovely to talk to, and explained she ran the business with her husband. I felt good supporting a family-owned local business.

                                        This was our 4th visit to the Boathouse. Though small, it suits our needs (2 adults) well. Best part are the kayaks and canoe.... loons on the pond, in a canoe on a moonlit night... just steps from your door...perfect.

                                        Our family has been staying at Pine Bluff at Hodgdon Pond for the past 8 years and our vacations in Maine have become a much beloved family tradition. Our kids, now 19 and 23, consider it their home away from home. The house is large, clean, well maintained, and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, and plenty of bedrooms. If there was ever any problem, Margo responded quickly to take care it. We spent many contented rainy days reading and playing board games and watching movies in the living room. And when the weather was good, we'd spend days kayaking (Margo has plenty of canoes and kayaks) and swimming on the beautiful, serene pond. We love being on the Quiet side of the island and being so close to Southwest Harbor with its library and great restaurants and little shops as well as close to all the great hiking in Acadia. In fact, we talked about loving Pine Bluff so much that our closest friends decided to give it a try and have now made it their annual family ritual!

                                        Manager response: Thanks Sharon. Coming back for 8 years is a great review all by itself. We want to know if something is not right so we can fix it and always welcome your call.

                                        Our family of five stayed in Rock Point for a week at the end of July. We wanted a a quiet location and couldn't have asked for a better house or location. The house is beautifully situated on Hodgdon Pond on the quiet side of MDI. It affords great views of the pond which is beautiful. It's very quiet with only a few homes. We enjoyed watching eagles soar over the pond. We also enjoyed the docks, kayaks and canoe the house provided. The house itself is very comfortable. Everything we needed to cook was provided. The location was ideal; most of the attractions on MDI were easy to get to. We’ve rented vacation homes all over the world and found this to be one of our best experiences. Margo made the rental process so easy and smooth. We highly recommend this rental property!

                                        Manager response: Thanks, Paige. I'm delighted that you had such a great experience at Hodgdon Pond. It truly is a peaceful place, yet close enough to get to the hustle and bustle of down town Bar Harbor.

                                        We have stayed in several of the Ann's Point Cottages over the last 25+ years, and have always found them to be comfortable, well maintained, well furnished and equipped, and in beautiful locations. We have wonderful memories of vacations there with our now grown three children. The cottages on Hodgdon Pond are particularly nice. It's a quiet, secluded location, and you have a small lake pretty much all to yourself. We've rarely seen anyone else on the pond when we've gone out in the included canoes or kayaks. It's minutes away from shopping in the village of Southwest Harbor, which has one of the nicest grocery shops on the island. The entire family wishes we could find the time to go every summer!

                                        Lovely as always, our favorite place to stay away from home. Margo had fresh cooked lobster awaiting us and it was the BEST that we had throughout our trip! The loft bedroom is so perfect with it's own bathroom and great views of the pond. The kitchen has everything we need to make the best breakfast and eat looking out at the view...the pond is perfect any time of day with canoes available by our on private dock! The smell of the pines is fabulous! The location is perfect to Acadia sites and shopping. We feel like we are on a honeymoon every time we visit! Staying at any of the cabins on the pond is a great experience you won't ever forget...this is the best vacation you will have!

                                        Manager response: We try to make the extra effort if we can help family members surprise their loved ones with birthday or anniversary flowers, cake or even lobsters. Just ask! We'll do our best to make your stay special. We have been in the hospitality business since 1974 and have families retrun year after year to this gorgeous island.

                                        My daughter and I have been lucky enough to experience staying on Hodgdon Pond on the "off" season for MDI- winter! The cottage provides everything necessary to have a completely comfortable and carefree stay. The home feel spacious, yet cozy at the same time. The kitchen is fully furnished with every item needed for cooking, and the bathrooms are roomy and updated. Each bedroom has a beautiful view of either the luscious surrounding woods, or the beautiful pond. Even the beds look (and feel!) cozy and inviting with the prettiest quilts. The wood buring stove keeps the cottage toasty warm. The living and dining area is condusive to anything one might want to do....playing board games, watching some television, or my favorite....snuggling up in a chair next to the fire with a good book. My daughter and I have enjoyed watching life through the skylights....seeing clouds roll by, watching the rain fall, seeing the moon- all overhead, is wonderous and lovely. While we anxiously await the pond to freeze for skating, one of our favorite things to do has been to bundle up in blankets and sit on the deck and LISTEN to the pond freeze. I never knew a body of water could make such cool sounds! Life on Hodgdon Pond is definitely a little slice of heaven. I highly recommend it.

                                        Manager response: Thanks for sharing. I had forgotten about the sounds of the pond freezing, but when Suzanne mentioned it the memories came flashing back of my first time on Hodgdon Pond in the winter. The stars and moon from the skylights are awesome, I agree. We aim to please and ask that our tenants let us know if they are missing something that would make their stay a little more comfortable. We have 2 properties that are available during the winter. It's an experience that you won't forget.
