Winter on Hodgdon Pond
My daughter and I have been lucky enough to experience staying on Hodgdon Pond on the "off" season for MDI- winter!
The cottage provides everything necessary to have a completely comfortable and carefree stay. The home feel spacious, yet cozy at the same time. The kitchen is fully furnished with every item needed for cooking, and the bathrooms are roomy and updated. Each bedroom has a beautiful view of either the luscious surrounding woods, or the beautiful pond. Even the beds look (and feel!) cozy and inviting with the prettiest quilts. The wood buring stove keeps the cottage toasty warm. The living and dining area is condusive to anything one might want to do....playing board games, watching some television, or my favorite....snuggling up in a chair next to the fire with a good book.
My daughter and I have enjoyed watching life through the skylights....seeing clouds roll by, watching the rain fall, seeing the moon- all overhead, is wonderous and lovely.
While we anxiously await the pond to freeze for skating, one of our favorite things to do has been to bundle up in blankets and sit on the deck and LISTEN to the pond freeze. I never knew a body of water could make such cool sounds!
Life on Hodgdon Pond is definitely a little slice of heaven. I highly recommend it.
Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing. I had forgotten about the sounds of the pond freezing, but when Suzanne mentioned it the memories came flashing back of my first time on Hodgdon Pond in the winter.
The stars and moon from the skylights are awesome, I agree. We aim to please and ask that our tenants let us know if they are missing something that would make their stay a little more comfortable. We have 2 properties that are available during the winter. It's an experience that you won't forget.
