So no need to be concerned if the power goes out. Paul & I have taken great pleasure in making Hodgkins' House our seaside retreat. The living and dining rooms are air conditioned. There are no pools but Bloomfield Park, less than a mile away, was the drinking water supply for the summer cottages, is a public freshwater beach. If you are brave enough for the Altantic water tempature there is Lamoine Beach and Lamoine State Park. Both are fun to hunt for what the sea left behind....moreless

Car: Necessary

Hodgkins' House is located on 11 well maintained acres in the town of Lamoine. This home is being beautifully renovated. The new well stocked island kitchen with granite counter tops offers a spacious area for the chef of your family. Renters can enjoy lots of space both inside and out for familys to spend quality time together or enjoy quiet times. It's lawns are large enough to host smaller weddings or family reunions. Avoid the travel hassle by flying into BHB only 7 miles from your home away from home. Pull into your two car attached garage and the fun begins. You will be less than 25 minutes from a whale watch trip, Kebo Valley Golf Club, and all wonders of Acadia. Hodgkins' house offers beautiful views of the bay and mountains of Acadia. Be the first person in the USA to see the sun rise from the top of Cadilac Mountain or relax with a mug of coffee and watch the fishing boats work the bay.

Other Activities: Whale, lobster and sailing trips along the shores of acadia. Hike or horse back the carriage roads. Watch the surf at Thunder Hole after a big blow. Visits a small fishing village for lunch. Beach comb for sea glass and shells. Relax with a good book in the screened in sun porch. Play badmitten or croquet on it's lawns. Sip something cool on the back deck as you watch the sun set on Eastern Bay.

Golf: Kebo Valley Golf Club is one of the oldest in the USA and the gem of Maine golf. In 1896 began play for Presidents, the rich summer residents and lobstermen. The challenging greens and rolling fairrways require you to play a wide variety of golf shots. Enjoy the majestic views of Acadia National Park and beware of the #17 the ''Taft' hole. Visitors are welcome. There are lots of other courses in the area.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Paul & I inherited this beautiful home a couple of years ago. We completely renovated the kitchen with granite countertops and added many touches to make it a cooks kitchen. We began renting it last summer. About five years ago we purchased my Aunt and Uncle's Pine Cone Cabin, next to ours on Green Lake, and began our seasonal rental business. As yet there is only one review for Hodgkins' House but there lots for Pine Cone Cabin, if you would care to see more reviews. We worked like beavers tearing it down to the outside walls and rebuilding it. I than had the fun of decorating it with things from the LL Bean outlet in Ellsworth. We have been so blessed with having wonderful renters .that we decided to rent Hodgkin' House as a weekly or monthly summer rental.

Why the Owner Chose Lamoine:
It's a beautiful place to hold your special event, weddings, reunions, and get togethers, with manicured lawns and plenty of off road parking.
