Rock Point accommodates six in 3 bedrooms + 2 baths. The first floor bedrooms have a queen bed and one with 2 twins. There are 2 baths, one with a tub/shower combination and washer + dryer. At the water's edge there is a kayak, canoe + row boat for your use. There is a hammock and deck furniture for relaxing and the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor is just 20 minutes away. There are other cottages available if you are traveling with more than 6 guests. Acadia owns the entire eastern side of Hodgdon Pond. Swimmers enjoy the pond June through Sept.
Great home with ample deck space, a yard, and access to a dock. The dock is shared with the owner and their son who have their yacht and lobster boat there, respectively. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The photos give a fair representation of the home's amenities and condition.
The first time we laid eyes on our cottage and the magnificent surroundings all we could do was stand there with our mouths open. Absolutely breathtaking. That was back in the 1990's. We came back 4 years in a row to Rockpoint at Hodgon Pond. Due to life, we couldn't go back for a while, but this year we made it a point to celebrate our anniversary where our hearts yearned to return. We weren't disappointed.
We stayed at Ann's Point Cottages on Southwest Harbor. Margo Stanley is a very kind and gracious host. Our cottage was immaculate, comfortable,and we lacked nothing.
No matter what you do or where you go in the area it's all good. If you love the ocean, forests and hiking this is the place for you. If you love small villages with friendly people, this place is for you. If you want to get away to do nothing and escape the hustle and bustle of life, this place is for you.
We highly recommend any cottage that the Stanley's own. Every one is strategically located for privacy and beauty.
One of us has the habit of crying on the day of departure every time.
We plan on returning,if possible, every year.
My experience was wonderful staying here! I stayed here twice and both times the houses were clean and well stocked. Swimming and canoeing in the pond were icing on the cake! The only downside is that there is a minimum stay of 5 or 7 days during busy season, which was hard for me because I only wanted 2 or 3 days, but it is completely understandable from a business perspective. The last time I stayed I was able to meet Margo, the owner, and she was lovely to talk to, and explained she ran the business with her husband. I felt good supporting a family-owned local business.
This was our 4th visit to the Boathouse. Though small, it suits our needs (2 adults) well. Best part are the kayaks and canoe.... loons on the pond, in a canoe on a moonlit night... just steps from your door...perfect.
Our family has been staying at Pine Bluff at Hodgdon Pond for the past 8 years and our vacations in Maine have become a much beloved family tradition. Our kids, now 19 and 23, consider it their home away from home.
The house is large, clean, well maintained, and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, and plenty of bedrooms. If there was ever any problem, Margo responded quickly to take care it.
We spent many contented rainy days reading and playing board games and watching movies in the living room. And when the weather was good, we'd spend days kayaking (Margo has plenty of canoes and kayaks) and swimming on the beautiful, serene pond.
We love being on the Quiet side of the island and being so close to Southwest Harbor with its library and great restaurants and little shops as well as close to all the great hiking in Acadia. In fact, we talked about loving Pine Bluff so much that our closest friends decided to give it a try and have now made it their annual family ritual!
Our family of five stayed in Rock Point for a week at the end of July. We wanted a a quiet location and couldn't have asked for a better house or location. The house is beautifully situated on Hodgdon Pond on the quiet side of MDI. It affords great views of the pond which is beautiful. It's very quiet with only a few homes. We enjoyed watching eagles soar over the pond. We also enjoyed the docks, kayaks and canoe the house provided. The house itself is very comfortable. Everything we needed to cook was provided. The location was ideal; most of the attractions on MDI were easy to get to.
We’ve rented vacation homes all over the world and found this to be one of our best experiences. Margo made the rental process so easy and smooth. We highly recommend this rental property!
