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 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.
What makes this House unique
It is organically sprayed once a month for ticks and mosquitoes.

The home was fantastic. The only real issue we had was with the noise of the construction company / sand pit down the street.
Owners were very nice and accommodating.
Thank you so much for saying our home was fantastic. We do our very best to make it ready for a clean, comfortable and enjoyable vacation.
We loved this house and the owner, Lucy, was so nice!! Wonderful time in the Bar Harbor area - this home was the perfect location - not too far away yet close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor - terrific kayaking at Lemoine State Beach; biking on the carriage roads and hiking in Acadia; also close enough that we fit in a day trip to Campobello. The home is well cared for and very clean - the owners thought of everything and more - we (just the two of us) were truly delighted with our stay and are looking forward to returning - we couldn't stop talking about our vacation to family and friends. Exceeded our expectations!
Thank you for the fabulous review. Paul and I are so happy you had a great vacation at Hodgkins' House. You were fabulous renters. Thank you taking terrific care of our home. Please return anytime to your Maine Vacation home.
Complete comfort with everything you could ask for. Lucy and Paul have thought of everything.
If peace, quiet, and the beauty of nature are what you are craving, this is the home for you. It has outstanding views and comfortable seating inside and outside. The patio kitchen and home kitchen give you multiple options for preparing food if you like. The location allows easy access to Acadia, the harbor towns and Ellsworth. You are in for a treat if you choose to vacation at Hodgkins' House.
Thank you for the excellent care you gave our home. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. The view of Eastern Bay with the leaves just changing to Fall colors is hard to beat. Please come back anytime to your Maine home.
Perfect vacation spot..property, house and view priceless!
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!
Thank you so much. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at Hodgkins' House. Thank you for being great renters. You are always welcome back to your Maine Summer home.
A PERFECT SPOT ...beautiful location , views from Frenchmen's Bay unrivelled!
Our week @ The Hodgkins House was beyond perfect...such a lovely home which has been cared for w/ everything in mind! Especially enjoyed the great kitchen w/ wonderful appliances & did some baking & all was here! The outside, tiered patio was so equipped too & enjoyed the fire-pit as well...what a spot for amazing sunsets & sunrises! Morning coffee & blueberries on the patio daily! 100%+ for this vacation rental...our mini reunion was super & I'll be back!
We are so happy you had a wonderful week at Hodgkins House, your Maine Summer Home.
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!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We also appreciate the care you gave our home. Please come back again anytime to your Maine Summer home.
