About Lucy Hodgkins

Paul & I inherited this beautiful home a few of years ago. We completely renovated the kitchen with granite countertops and added many touches to make it a cooks kitchen. 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 a few reviews 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.

Why Lucy Hodgkins chose Lamoine

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

What makes this house unique

It is organically sprayed once a month for ticks and mosquitoes.

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. It has an automatic generator system. So no need to be concerned if the power goes out. 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.

Great home

  • 4 of 5

The home was fantastic. The only real issue we had was with the noise of the construction company / sand pit down the street.

Owners were very nice and accommodating.

We loved this house and the owner, Lucy, was so nice!! Wonderful time in the Bar Harbor area - this home was the perfect location - not too far away yet close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor - terrific kayaking at Lemoine State Beach; biking on the carriage roads and hiking in Acadia; also close enough that we fit in a day trip to Campobello. The home is well cared for and very clean - the owners thought of everything and more - we (just the two of us) were truly delighted with our stay and are looking forward to returning - we couldn't stop talking about our vacation to family and friends. Exceeded our expectations!

Perfect vacation, house and view priceless!

  • 5 of 5

The house, property, and the view from the backyard went beyond our expectations. We had three generations of family for the week and there was something for everyone. The house is vey well equipped for whatever you need. The bedrooms were all good sized, sheets, towels, and beds very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for anything you need for cooking, baking, grilling. The house is big enough that if you want to be alone, there are plenty of areas. Our 4 year old grandson was thrilled with the playroom and toys, toys in the garage AND an outside area to play with provided construction vehicles! The grounds are large and such that it is great for kids to run around on. The enclosed back porch was wonderful for anytime day or evening. All was well kept and clean! Wished we could have spent the whole summer there. Hope to come back next summer. The owners are wonderful!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

I knew when I stepped into the Hodgkins' House that I picked the perfect place for our Maine visit. The view from the back yard was amazing. It's not just an average rental, it's an actual home you're staying in. Every room is warm and comfortable. The Hodgkins' House is just a short drive to any place you'd like to visit, and my family just about did it all. Paul & Lucy were wonderful host's and I can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us. Leaving your driveway for the last time was actually a sad moment for us. We really loved our stay and are seriously considering another visit for nest year. Would love to give it more than five stars.
