Located in Seal Cove on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, this cottage at Hodgdon Pond Farm offers proximity to all the other attractions of the island and Acadia National Park. The 3 double bedroom/ 2 bath cottage with sleeping loft shares 7.4 acres and 800 plus or minus feet of shore front on Hodgdon Pond with Cottage 2, which is about 2/3rds of a football field away. (Please see 924253VB). The opposite shore of the lake is owned and protected by the National Park. Wildlife is abundant and guests frequently see osprey, Bald eagles, kingfisher and many other birds as well as deer, beaver, muskrat, and sometimes otter and moose.
The cottage has its own dock, canoe, two kayaks and a rowboat. Swimming is best from the rocks on the opposite shore, and from a swim float in the lake. There is a charcoal grill, picnic table and outdoor furniture as well as a hammock overlooking the lake, Satellite TV and Internet
There are also two small ponds, a sitting area, swing set and sandbox on the property that are shared with people in Cottage 2.
Wherever possible, we use 'Green' cleaning products, provide supplies made from recycled paper, low-watt bulbs, and implement other ways to reduce our impact on the environment. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has certified Hodgdon Pond Farm as an 'Environmental Leader.'
Though there are beds for 7 people, we limit occupancy to 6 people, but occasionally permit a 7th person for an additional charge of $200.
