Property description

Located on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, this cottage offers proximity to all the other attractions of the island and Acadia National Park. The cottage shares 7.4 acres and 800 plus or minus feet of shore front on Hodgdon Pond with a second cottage. The opposite shore of the lake is owned and protected by the National Park. Wildlife is abundant and guests frequently see osprey, Bald eagles, kingfisher and many other birds as well as deer, beaver, muskrat, and sometimes otter and moose.

The cottage has its own dock, canoe, two kayaks and a rowboat. Swimming is particularly good from the rocks on the opposite shore, and from a swim float in the lake. Cottage has its own grill, picnic table and outdoor furniture as well as a hammock overlooking the lake, Satellite TV and Internet

There are also two small ponds, a sitting area, swing set and sandbox on the property.

Wherever possible, we use 'Green' cleaning products, provide supplies made from recycled paper, low-watt bulbs, and implement other ways to reduce our impact on the environment. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has certified Hodgdon Pond Farm as an 'Environmental Leader.'

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $100
  • Tax Rate 9%

Notes:

Contrary to the VRBO policy expressed above, I break the rent into three payments. My refund policy also differs from that expressed by VRBO. The rent covers 6 people and charge $200.00 for an additional occupant with a maximum of 7. The rent also covers 3 hours of cleaning, but renters may pay $100.00 fee for additional cleaning, though we require that you wash and dry one load of towels, empty the refrigerator, return any items to their original locations, and respect the property during your stay. Please contact me for more information. Thanks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: I'm a summer kid who fell in love with Mount Desert Island and lived there year-round for 15 years. After many years and many travels, I still think of it as home. My most recent book, 'Islands of Time,' is set on Mount Desert Island. Linda Greenlaw, NYT best-selling author said, 'I really like it. It's a love-song to the people and landscape of Maine.'

Why the Owner Chose Seal Cove, Tremont, ME, USA:
I was attracted to this property, formerly a hunting and fishing camp, because the ad boasted abundant wildlife. When I first saw Hodgdon Pond Farm, I realized proximity to Acadia National Park gave it enduring protection and privacy, and yet it was convenient to everything else on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love reading in the hammock beside the lake, and listening to the sounds of the birds and animals - the trill of tree frogs, keening of loons, and the querulous calls of osprey that always sound as if they are trying to get children off to school. Sometimes I hear a beaver slap the water with its tail, and sometimes ravens loudly scolding an eagle. The bullfrogs, Kingfisher, and warblers add to this ever changing, ever fascinating serenade. I also love sitting in one of the Adirondack chairs near the Little Ponds. The last time I was there I watched a mother duck and four very small duckings paddling to the bridge with the beaver dam. When they got very close a mink lunged out from under the bridge - but missed them all. Another time I was weeding the garden between the ponds when an otter stood up about ten feet from me, clutching a frog in its paws, which it then crunched as it rested in the culvert. These experiences carry me through a long winter!
