About Hannah Holmes / John Dorvee
Hannah Holmes is a Maine native; her husband John Dorvee is an import from Vermont. We share a deep love of Nature, and of animals. We strive for a clean, low-impact lifestyle, especially here at the pond.
Why Hannah Holmes / John Dorvee chose East Baldwin
We were thrilled to find a cottage this close to Portland, and yet so far away! The quiet lane, with just four camps on it, lured us in; when we heard the loons wailing, there was no turning back. It was a huge bonus that Hannah's aunt and uncle live nearby in Cornish. And that there were loons. And that it was that much closer to hikes in the White Mountains. And that there were loons.
What makes this Cabin unique
More inclined to paddling than running an engine, we found that most of our neighbors share our preference. And as the pond is sparsely developed, the water remains clear and clean, hopping with frogs, fish and turtles. And loons!

Great place/location. Very relaxing and quite. Will definitely be returning.
Lovely small cottage in a quiet location. The lake is so peaceful and the sunset is gorgeous. Great place to have an old fashioned vacation, to unplug and unwind.
Piece of heaven
We stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. The location is great, the cabin was sparkling clean, everything was great.
My sisters and aunt loved the cottage and view of sand pond.
beds were comfortable and the unit was well stocked.
thanks john and hannah
The looney bin was the perfect getaway. The cabin was immaculate, perfectly stocked with all needed to cook our meals, clean beds and towels. The location was more than we could have wished for... beautiful pond with canoe and kayaks, hammock and firepit!! We had gorgeous weather and the renters could not have been nicer.
We stay a quite a few home away, this one was one of the favorites! Good Swimming and fishing. The owners helped with all our questions and were very kind. We would stay here again!
Between the foothills of the White Mountains and the summer playground of Sebago Lake, this region is rural, peaceful, and easy-going. We spend most of our time on the dock or paddling around the pond. When we do venture out, we love antiquing in picturesque Cornish, which also has good restaurants. (Krista's, and the Cornish Inn.) The Main Street Grill in Standish has a giant menu, and allows you to wander the giant, old farmhouse in search of the resident ghost. Throughout the area, farm stands pop up in season, and apple-picking begins in late summer. This is a prime place to unplug and unwind!
