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 nine 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.

Lovely property with all you need to have a great vacation
Hodgkins’ House is a nice home for those looking to explore more than MDI. We had a great time exploring the Schoodic Peninsula, which is something we typically don’t do when vacationing at Acadia but the location of the house allowed us that opportunity.
The house itself is just right for a family or two couples traveling together. The outdoor living area is peaceful and we enjoyed grilling steaks one night and using the lobster pot another. The fire pit is a nice touch and warmed us up on a chilly night.
The house has pretty much everything you will need to enjoy a stress free vacation- from beach chairs and towels to all kinds of cooking and baking supplies. The property is perfect for dogs to run and play. The two car garage really made loading and unloading easy.
While the house is a bit further from Bar Harbor than we are used to, we planned our days accordingly and made it all work without a hitch.
The hosts are helpful, friendly and care about making their guests feel welcome and comfortable. We would happily return.
We are very happy you enjoyed your Maine Vacation at Hodgkins' House. We try to make our home ready, as possible.for your stay. Thank you for being terrific renters. Come back to Hodgkins' House anytime.
Amazing house and location
Hodgkins' House was perfect! We had a fantastic week in Lucy and Paul's beautiful house. The yard and the view were just as beautiful as pictured, and we loved pulling into the driveway and seeing the breathtaking view of the water and Acadia. The inside of the house was even more airy, open, and comfortable than we had imagined, especially the ridiculously well stocked kitchen. Our toddler loved running around the house, playing with the many (many!) toys, and playing in the yard on the swing/hammock, in the sandpit, with the trucks, and the basketballs. We very much appreciated the door to the 2nd floor so we didn't have to worry about his safety at all. We loved seeing Acadia and the harbor towns and also took trips to Deer Isle and the quiet side of Acadia (a must). And it was always a treat to come back to the house to relax and soak in the view. We very much appreciated the extra touches that Lucy and Paul's provide and would come back in a second!
It is so nice of you, to take the time, to write this awesome Hodgkins' House's review.
We try to make it as comfortable and inviting for our guests and ourselves. We have it thoroughly cleaned and ready to just walk in and enjoy the stay.
Thank you for taking great care of our home. It is much appreciated.
All the comforts of home, plus more!
Hodgkins' House was the perfect home base for our recent visit to the area. There were plenty of toys and games to entertain the kids (ages 7 and 4), room for the dogs to play and relax in the sun, and everything the adults needed, too. From the warm welcome from Lucy to the well-stocked kitchen to the packed beach bag, our hosts really thought of everything! The location was also ideal, close to Bar Harbor and Acadia, restaurants, stores and more while still set back far enough to offer relaxation and some beautiful views. The bar has been set very high for any future travels and if we find ourselves back in the area, we would love to stay here again!
We want our renters to have their best Maine Vacation! Thank You
We enjoyed our stay very much. Low key & peaceful. The drive to Bar Harbor is no problem, so you are away from the crowds.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you for leaving our home in excellent condition.
Gorgeous view, very clean, great beds and towels, loved the location. Wonderful hosts!
They were very accommodating and easy to work with. We were welcomed with fresh strawberries and a partially stocked fridge. The kitchen has absolutely everything from condiments to baking basics. We cooked in 70% of the time and never searched for a cooking item we couldn’t find. Loved the basketball hoop and the croquet set too! You can’t possibly go wrong here. The view, the breeze, all give a deep sense of serenity.
Oh, thank you so much, for your five star review. Paul and I try to prepare our home, for your best vacation, home stay. The outdoor kitchen is a great new addition. I love how the seafood can be cooked and eaten outside, reducing the seafood smells and easy hose down clean up. Thank you for taking great care of our home. Please come stay again sometime at Hodgkins' House, for your Maine vacation.
Beautiful and peaceful!
Lucy and Paul have outdone themselves making their property feel like home. From the comfy beds to the playroom to the amazing backyard and the fabulous kitchen they have thought of everything. Our only complaint was that we didn't book a longer vacation. This was the perfect location to explore Mount Desert Island and Acadia. Ellsworth offered all the shopping we needed and going back to the peace of Lamoine each night was so relaxing. We traveled with the adults and 4 children aged 7 - 15 and there was something for everybody. We would recommend this home to anybody!
Thank you for the great review and taking great care of our home. We enjoyed meeting you and your families. So happy the kids had fun. Paul & I just put up a teardrop tree hammock, reading nock, for the next time you stay. Our grandchildren love theirs. You won't run out of trails to hike or ocean to see. Next time your family might also enjoy our Pine Cone Cabin, on Green Lake. It's about twenty minutes further from Acadia but a world of quiet relaxation and nature. It comes complete with kayaks, paddleboard, paddle boat, fish poles etc.
