About Lucy Hodgkins

Paul & I inherited this beautiful home a few of years ago. We completely renovated the kitchen with granite countertops and added many touches to make it a cooks kitchen. 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 a few reviews 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 Lucy Hodgkins chose Acadia

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

Notes:
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.

Perfect vacation spot..property, house and view priceless!

  • 5 of 5

The house, property, and the view from the backyard went beyond our expectations. We had three generations of family for the week and there was something for everyone. The house is vey well equipped for whatever you need. The bedrooms were all good sized, sheets, towels, and beds very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for anything you need for cooking, baking, grilling. The house is big enough that if you want to be alone, there are plenty of areas. Our 4 year old grandson was thrilled with the playroom and toys, toys in the garage AND an outside area to play with provided construction vehicles! The grounds are large and such that it is great for kids to run around on. The enclosed back porch was wonderful for anytime day or evening. All was well kept and clean! Wished we could have spent the whole summer there. Hope to come back next summer. The owners are wonderful!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

I knew when I stepped into the Hodgkins' House that I picked the perfect place for our Maine visit. The view from the back yard was amazing. It's not just an average rental, it's an actual home you're staying in. Every room is warm and comfortable. The Hodgkins' House is just a short drive to any place you'd like to visit, and my family just about did it all. Paul & Lucy were wonderful host's and I can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us. Leaving your driveway for the last time was actually a sad moment for us. We really loved our stay and are seriously considering another visit for nest year. Would love to give it more than five stars.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Hodgkins' House for our summer vacation and we truly enjoyed it. Lucy and Paul were very accommodating and excellent hosts. Our flight coming in was very late and they provided breakfast items for us so we didn't have to worry the first morning we were there. The house is amazing, everything is clean, well maintained with all the amenities you could ask for and more. The back patio's view of Acadia is beautiful and we enjoyed the newly installed outdoor grille. The location is central to many sites, although we really enjoyed staying "home" and cooked many meals.

We highly recommend this property and would absolutely stay here again if we are lucky enough to return to Acadia in the future!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Hodgkins' House. Everything was just as described - clean, well-maintained with all the amenities you could ask for. We were close to Bar Harbor and Acadia but in such peaceful surroundings. The beds were super comfy, the L&L Bean towels so plush, and we could cook up some delicious dishes in the wonderfully updated and stocked kitchen. I highly recommend Hodgkins' House!

Beautifully located and well kept house

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Lucy's house is extremely well maintained and has all the conveniences you could need on vacation. The view from the back garden is fantastic and we made use of the fire pit some evenings. The house is well located. On Paul's recommendation we visited Schoodic peninsula, less crowded than Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island but wonderful scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Maine and would recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being great renters and your kind words for Hodgkins' House. If you loved visiting Schoodic next time don't miss Deer Isle Stonington. It's a picture perfect Maine fishing community. Castine is another gem. How about a whale watch? Robertson's Sea Tours takes you on a wonderful adventure. We hope you decide to return to Hodgkins' House some day. We are now booking for 2017. Don't wait to book your week at your Maine Summer home.
