The houses are attractive, clean, well-appointed, and very livable. The lake is beautiful, and provides swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and just a beautiful setting for reading and observing wildlife. We love being on the quiet side, and yet we can still get easily to activities of all sorts all over the island. The whole feel of the Hodgdon Pond experience is relaxed, removed, quiet, rejuvenating. It's a place that nourishes quality, wholesome, family time. At the same time, there are endless adventures available in the park: each year we do somehting new, in addition to lots of old favorites.
This is a setting for people who want to soak up the natural grandeur of Mt. Desert Island without being barraged by tacky tourist culture and needing to eat out all the time. It's the perfect place to bring extended, multigenerational family. By its very nature, it creates wonderful memories that last throughout the year.
