About John Hikade

John and Beth Hikade moved to Blue Hill in the 1970's. They opened the award winning Fire Pond restaurant at that time and stayed in the restaurant business until the early 80's when they started their family. John then turned his focus towards carpentry and became a well known restorer of beautiful the old homes that are so prevalent in the Blue Hill area- their current restaurant is perhaps his greatest masterpiece yet. When their children were older John and Beth decided to start a new restaurant called Arborvine, which in its 13 years has won many awards, and gained the same stellar reputation that the Fire Pond had all throughout New England.

John Hikade purchased this apartment in 1998

Why John Hikade chose Downeast and Acadia

When John and Beth purchased the building next door to the restaurant they knew they had their work cut out for them. With John's amazing carpentry skills and help from his 2 sons, the simple old doctors office next door was turned into a beautiful office space which is home to a local graphic design company (Borealis Press) and a gorgeous luxury apartment located in the center of Historic Blue Hill Village. Renters have found Blue Hill to have everything they are looking for from hiking, to dining and shopping, all right on the amazing Downeast Maine Coast.

What makes this apartment unique

During the summer months you have the convenience of 2 restaurants just across the white fence- The Arborvine with its award winning fine dining, or the more casual Deep Water BrewPub with Craft Beers, outside seating and a Pub style menu. There are fantastic farmer's markets held several times a week in town, plus wonderful local events like street dances with the local Steel Band, plays by the community theater companies, fairs, festivals, and of course the coast of Maine just waiting to be explored.

The cooler months bring a relaxed slower pace to the community. See Acadia national Park on skis, dine and shop. Many of the local shops and restaurants are still open, but you can also stay in and cook and curl up with a good book in front of the fire and watch the snow fly!

My 5th stay. First in Spring season.

  • 5 of 5

If you appreciate great design, cleanliness, quiet location, walking distance to town and best Wi-Fi...do not hesitate.

This was my fifth week long stay. First in Spring. Normally am here in December when the gas fired stove is warming. My nephew's sons love coming up and going over their most recent games, Bay School projects, or educating me on the game MindServe. Great walks. Wonderful library just down the street. And, a fine restaurant across the parking lot. It is worth the trip from San Francisco.

Very classy

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful. Everything is "high end" . It is right in the center of town so you can walk to several things. We liked to walk just a few blocks to watch the tide go in or out. Owner is very accessible if you have a problem, which we did not. It is just a short trip to several towns. We went to Bar Harbor, Stonington, Ellsworth, Brunswick , and Searsport. All of them great places to shop and eat great food.

A wonderful and cozy apartment located in a welcoming and cozy seaside town.

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at this well furnished, warm and comfortable upstairs apartment. The gas fireplace added atmosphere. The owner was great to work with and accommodating. It is conveniently located across from a great brewpub and a very nice restaurant. It was within walking distance to a park overlooking the inlet and near several nice shops. Blue Hill is located near Bar Harbor and the National Park. I look forward to our return visit and without hesitation recommend it to others.

Winter is not to be missed with beautiful ski and snow shoe trails, ice skating, and a romantic dinner by the fireplace at Arborvine. Spring arrives with beautiful flowering apple trees and native lupines, first of the year greens and strawberries from many local organic farms, and increasingly warmer and sunnier days. Whatever the season Blue Hill is sure to fulfill your vacation desires year round.
