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 Downeast and Acadia

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

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 place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Hodgkins' House. Everything was just as described - clean, well-maintained with all the amenities you could ask for. We were close to Bar Harbor and Acadia but in such peaceful surroundings. The beds were super comfy, the L&L Bean towels so plush, and we could cook up some delicious dishes in the wonderfully updated and stocked kitchen. I highly recommend Hodgkins' House!

Beautifully located and well kept house

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Lucy's house is extremely well maintained and has all the conveniences you could need on vacation. The view from the back garden is fantastic and we made use of the fire pit some evenings. The house is well located. On Paul's recommendation we visited Schoodic peninsula, less crowded than Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island but wonderful scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Maine and would recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being great renters and your kind words for Hodgkins' House. If you loved visiting Schoodic next time don't miss Deer Isle Stonington. It's a picture perfect Maine fishing community. Castine is another gem. How about a whale watch? Robertson's Sea Tours takes you on a wonderful adventure. We hope you decide to return to Hodgkins' House some day. We are now booking for 2017. Don't wait to book your week at your Maine Summer home.

The most fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

There is not enough space here to write about the most wonderful vacation we had in Maine this year. I wondered if the house was going to be as nice as the pictures. The home was perfect. To say they had everything they said they did would be an understatement

Our experience at the Hodgkins' House was amazing!

Paul and Lucy are incredibly friendly, helpful and answered any questions we had immediately.

The house is gorgeous, spacious, well maintained and immaculately clean. The house is also stocked with everything we needed to help us enjoy our vacation! The property is also incredibly well maintained and has a spectacular view.

Again, our experience was wonderful and we would highly recommend the Hodgkins' house!

beautiful and inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for our week long stay (4 adults and 3 children) to a spacious yard with a beautiful view, fresh cut flowers in many of the rooms and complimentary Maine Blueberries in the freezer.

The house was clean and it is clear the owners take a good deal of pride in their home and also open their home to their guests. There was plenty of room for our group and we enjoyed fires in the yard in the evening.

Lucy and Paul were easy to work with and prompt with communication.

Most days, we drove into Acadia, so if that is your plan, understand that you will be making a short drive to do so.

Memorable Fall Vacation in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful experience renting this home in early October. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The view of Acadia from the back porch is postcard worthy and was a great backdrop for our morning coffee. We also had daily visits from a family of turkeys and saw a fox one morning. Our dog enjoyed the huge backyard with plenty of room to roam. The house was fully stocked for any occasion and was impeccably clean. The kitchen is modern and contains every appliance or gadget you will ever need. We also appreciated the satellite TV as we didn't miss one game of the baseball playoffs. The owners were great to work with and made for a very easy rental experience. We recommend this home for anyone looking for great vacation experience near Acadia.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the super review and for taking great care of our home. We are very lucky to have this beautiful view to enjoy. The fall leaves are the icing on the cake. Acadia is amazing all year, but in the Fall the days are warm, the nights cool and there are fewer tourists. Between the cable TV, Netflix and Wi-Fi everyone can stay connected if they choose. We would love to welcome you again to Hodgkins House overlooking Eastern Bay.

Hodgkins' House is located on 11 well maintained acres in the town of Lamoine. This home has a well stocked island kitchen with granite counter tops offers a spacious area for the chef of your family. Renters can enjoy lots of space both inside and out for familys to spend quality time together or enjoy quiet times. It's lawns are large enough to host smaller weddings or family reunions. Avoid the travel hassle by flying into BHB only 7 miles from your home away from home. Pull into your two car attached garage and the fun begins. You will be about 25 minutes from a whale watch trip, Kebo Valley Golf Club, and all wonders of Acadia. Hodgkins' house offers beautiful views of the bay and mountains of Acadia. Be the first person in the USA to see the sun rise from the top of Cadilac Mountain or relax with a mug of coffee and watch the fishing boats work the bay.

Other Activities: Whale, lobster and sailing trips along the shores of Acadia. Hike or horse back the carriage roads. Watch the surf at Thunder Hole after a big blow. Visits a small fishing village for lunch. Beach comb for sea glass and shells. Relax with a good book in the screened in sun porch. Play badmitten or croquet on it's lawns. Sip something cool on the back deck as you watch the sun set on Eastern Bay.

Golf: Kebo Valley Golf Club is one of the oldest in the USA and the gem of Maine golf. In 1896 began play for Presidents, the rich summer residents and lobstermen. The challenging greens and rolling fairrways require you to play a wide variety of golf shots. Enjoy the majestic views of Acadia National Park and beware of the #17 the ''Taft' hole. Visitors are welcome. There are lots of other courses in the area.
