John and Beth Hikade moved to Blue Hill in the 1970's. They opened the award winning Fire Pond restaurant at that time and stayed in the restaurant business until the early 80's when they started their family. John then turned his focus towards carpentry and became a well known restorer of beautiful the old homes that are so prevalent in the Blue Hill area- their current restaurant is perhaps his greatest masterpiece yet. When their children were older John and Beth decided to start a new restaurant called Arborvine, which in its 13 years has won many awards, and gained the same stellar reputation that the Fire Pond had all throughout New England.

John Hikade purchased this apartment in 1998

When John and Beth purchased the building next door to the restaurant they knew they had their work cut out for them. With John's amazing carpentry skills and help from his 2 sons, the simple old doctors office next door was turned into a beautiful office space which is home to a local graphic design company (Borealis Press) and a gorgeous luxury apartment located in the center of Historic Blue Hill Village. Renters have found Blue Hill to have everything they are looking for from hiking, to dining and shopping, all right on the amazing Downeast Maine Coast.

During the summer months you have the convenience of 2 restaurants just across the white fence- The Arborvine with its award winning fine dining, or the more casual Deep Water BrewPub with Craft Beers, outside seating and a Pub style menu. There are fantastic farmer's markets held several times a week in town, plus wonderful local events like street dances with the local Steel Band, plays by the community theater companies, fairs, festivals, and of course the coast of Maine just waiting to be explored.

The cooler months bring a relaxed slower pace to the community. See Acadia national Park on skis, dine and shop. Many of the local shops and restaurants are still open, but you can also stay in and cook and curl up with a good book in front of the fire and watch the snow fly!

A tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, perfectly located, private, cozy, romantic retreat. Pictures are accurate but this lovely apartment is even nicer in real life. Blue Hill has many terrific eating options (don't miss the superb Arborvine next door) but the perfectly equipped kitchen and cozy little gas stove will tempt you to bring home something yummy from the Blue Hill Coop (and wine and cheese from the excellent Blue Hill wine shop) and cuddle as the snow falls gently outside and the sun sets out your window overlooking a perfect New England white church steeple...Ask Chrissy, John, or Beth for advice on any of the many splendid local activities, from hiking and biking and water activities to art, culture, history and, of course, Maine's splendid food and beverages. A very cute brewpub is under construction in an old barn in the back of the property and looks to be the perfect place to be come this summer.

Comfortable and charming retreat

The Apartment at Arborvine was exactly as advertised and pictured. It was well appointed, incredibly clean and very convenient. Beth and John were excellent hosts - very helpful but not intrusive. Their Arborvine restaurant is a must.
Acadia National Park in one direction and Stonington in the other are both worthwhile destinations. We also visited Ellsworth and ate at Cleonice - an excellent tappas restaurant. We were very comfortable during our stay due to the thoughtfulness of our hosts. This was our first VRBO experience and it was an excellent one. We would recommend this property without reservation.
