Description of the Mt Desert vacation home rental
Like new, year round home on Hodgdon Pond, great for swimming and kayaking right from your door step. Down town Bar Harbor or Southwest Harbor is a scenic 15 to 20 minutes away for shops, restaurants, banks, community center, tennis, art galleries and fresh seafood. We have kayaks, canoes and a row boat for our guests to use on the pond. This is one location on MDI that you will not hear road traffic. Take a tour with an Acadia National Park guide, go on a whale watching tour or just relax in the hammock with a good book.
Area Information
Acadia National Park is at your door step for the best scenic trails in the area. The park owns the entire eastern side of Hodgdon Pond; therefore, it's totally undeveloped. There is a brook across the pond that rushes into the lake that is a wilderness wonder. The lake is only a mile long so there are no noisy power boats to disrupt the peace and quiet. The hustle and bustle of down town Bar Harbor where the cruise ships come in is a 20 minute drive and there are scenic views and trails within the 20 minutes. If this is your first visit to the island, I can almost guarantee it won't be your last.

Relaxing and enjoyable!

August 15, 2014

The house was great! enough room, very clean, plenty of basic material....The fact this was near the waterfront is also a great value since you can go walking or play with the kids. If you plan to reach Acadia State park for of few day, you may find far from the park. There is traffic and can took 60-90 min to reach the park. Overall - great place to live! but far from the park

Owner's reply:

I am amazed that it took 60 to 90 minutes to reach Acadia State Park, because there is the Long Pond entrance within a mile of Loon Lane where this cottage is located. Perhaps my guests are talking about down town Bar Harbor, which is normally 20 to 30 minutes away, The maps of Mount Desert Island usually have the park clearly identified. I suggest taking a look and see just where you want to be in the park. Thanks for the 4 stars! Margo
