                  • Hodgkins' House is turn key ready just bring your food and warm clothes just in case. The first floor is wheelchair friendly, however assistance would be needed entering the home by lifting up one step. It has an automatic generator system. 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

                          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.
