Paul & I inherited this beautiful home a couple of years ago. We completely renovated the kitchen with granite countertops and added many touches to make it a cooks kitchen. We began renting it last summer. 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 one review 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.

It's a beautiful place to hold your special event, weddings, reunions, and get togethers, with manicured lawns and plenty of off road parking.

An outstanding home from home!

A review of this type is only of value if it is honest, balanced and points out the limitations as well as the advantages. With these points in mind, our family have rented many holiday homes both in the States and in Europe and we all ranked Hodgkins' House as the best yet. Throughout everything is of a very high standard. It was spotlessly clean, full of items of good taste and high quality, spacious and we found all the beds were comfortable. The weather was warm but the air conditioning worked well and quietly. In particular the newly remodelled kitchen had everything that one could want - and more. All the crockery, cutlery and glasses matched and there were pans, dishes and utensils galore. The gardens are very well kept and the spacious lawns were mown whilst we were there by Paul. There is a great view looking seaward from the sun deck.
The owners are a really friendly and helpful couple. Lucy handled the paperwork side of things and was very efficient about it. Paul took some time out from the lawn mowing for a most useful chat about how things worked, where to buy lobsters and places to visit. He recommended a whale spotting trip which the two of them had recently been on and that was spectacular. We went twenty miles out to sea and saw several; best of all a hump back over sixty feet long alongside us and less than five metres away which then swam underneath our boat!
The house is very well located: well away from the bustle of Bar Harbour yet in easy drives of the most interesting spots.
So, bearing in mind our comment about a balanced review, what about the downside? We really have to struggle to find any and the best we can do is say that the multicolour plastic chairs on the lawn are out of keeping, in our view, of the extremely good taste of everything else about this beautiful house and its large gardens and grounds.
We cannot recommend Hodgkins' House enough; it really is an outstanding home from home.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a glowing review of Hodgkins' House. With all the traveling your family has done, it's wonderful to hear you hold our home in such high reguard. We have worked to make this home as walk in ready as possible. I decided that if I were traveling it would be nice not to have to buy all those everyday food items, spices, cooking supplies, herbs and condiments etc. that add up quickly at the market. They are there if guests wish to use them. There are lots of good places to buy seafood, and in my mind, the best place to cook them is on the lobster cooker outside and eat them on the back porch. That way the home doesn't smell like seafood and you can alway hose down the porch. Paul and I enjoyed meeting your family and hope you took home many fond memories of your stay in Maine. It's always wows us when families from other countries decide to rent our home. The whale adventure is something I'll never forget. Being that close to the humpbacks was amazing. This winter we hope to continue the renovations by updating the living room. Your family has been the only one so far to take up the mallet with a game of croquet. Paul takes great pride in his lawns just like his Dad. If you decide to stay again at Hodgkins' House the rainbow chairs will be replaced. We are so happy that's the only thing that you would change. Thanks again for the wonderful review.

We (family of four, two teenagers) were very pleased with our stay at Hodgkins House. We were welcomed with fresh cut flowers and a bottle of wine into a house that is very clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the house sits well off the road making it a nearly private country setting that affords a wonderful view of Frenchman Bay. We picked Hodgkins House to stay at, after researching many other accommodations, because it provided what we were looking for: a fully furnished kitchen where we prepared most of our own meals, and a quiet “home base” to return to after sightseeing during the day. Hodgkins House more than met our expectations! It is apparent that Lucy and Paul go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable and made to feel welcome. We would definitely return to Hodgkins House on our next trip to the area.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review for Hodgkins' House. Paul and I are very happy your family enjoyed your stay at your summer home in Maine. We would love to have you return anytime. Thanks again for taking great care of our home.

Lovely family friendly house close to Bar Harbor

We had three generations stay here for a week and the accommodations made everyone happy! Not an easy feat...
The house is spacious and very kid-friendly - my two year old had a blast playing with Lucy's grandson's trucks and running circles around the huge yard. The house itself is beautifully maintained and fully stocked for just about anything - there is a bag packed and ready to walk out the door to the nearby beach and the kitchen has everything you could ask for in terms of food preparation (including a keurig! So handy for our coffee loving family). All of which speak to the incredible hospitality shown to us by both Lucy and Paul. In addition to the house itself, the location was very convenient - we did a couple of day trips into Bar Harbor and Acadia (about a 25 minute trip) and my sister flew into the nearby airport, which was literally a 10 minute drive. There are several places to pick up local seafood if you feel like cooking, and we also had good luck at the nearby antique stores. All in all, I hate to tell you how much we enjoyed it because I don't want to have to compete with you next summer when I am booking again! But it's only fair - I wholeheartedly recommend Hodgkins House.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review of Hodgkins' House. It was a pleasure meeting your family. Paul and I are so happy you all enjoyed your stay and are so happy you are returning next summer. Thank you also for leaving our home in such great condition. Great renters are always welcome.

Relaxation at its best

Hodgkins' House was everything we hoped for in a vacation spot. The house was clean and well kept. The updated kitchen and master bath were immaculate and had all of the tools needed for a comfortable stay. The best things about this house though are the view and the ocean breeze from the backyard. Everyday we sat outside in the shade of the big trees. The breeze blowing in from the bay kept us cool on even the hottest of days. The trip to Acadia is an easy 20 minute drive, and the proximity to Schoodic point (our favorite place to visit) made this an ideal spot away from the hectic pace of Desert Island, but close enough to come and go whenever we felt like sightseeing. The only negative thing I can say is that there was some noise from construction vehicles driving on the road in the morning. We definitely plan to return to this house the next time our travels take us to this part of the country.
Owner's Response: Thank you for being the first great renters ever for Hodgkins' House. Paul and I want to thank you also for taking such good care of our home. Schoodic is beautiful we go whale watching on the Elizabeth Rose with Captain Jim Parker off there every August. Look on www.robertsonseatours.com you won't believe being just a few feet from Humpback, Finback or Minke whales. Another great day trip is Deer Isle, Stonington they are picture perfect small fishing villages. We have a couple that come to our other rental Pine Cone Cabin on Green lake for two weeks every July. He is a photographer and he says he will never run of things to shoot in this area. I like to go to Acadia in the Fall. Then the leaves are turning. The days are just right for hiking and biking. There are a lot less people and our rental rate has dropped. We hope you took home many memories and come again to your Summer home in Maine.

Notes:
Hodgkins' House is turn key ready just bring your food and warm clothes just in case. The first floor is wheelchair friendly, however assistance would be needed entering the home by lifting up one step. Paul & I have taken great pleasure in making Hodgkins' House our seaside retreat. The living and dining rooms are air conditioned. There are no pools but Bloomfield Park, less than a mile away, was the drinking water supply for the summer cottages, is a public freshwater beach. If you are brave enough for the Altantic water tempature there is Lamoine Beach and Lamoine State Park. Both are fun to hunt for what the sea left behind.
