The Boathouse is a waterfront cottage deemed an efficiency as the queen bed is located in the living area along with the kitchen, dinette and sitting area. The outside deck looks right over the beach area where the dock and boats are located. Hodgdon Pond is a fresh water pond on the west side of Mount Desert Island. The pond is only a mile long so there are no noisy power boats to disrupt the peace and quiet. Swimmers enjoy the pond from June to September.
