Crocker House is changing hands
HANCOCK — Forty-one years ago Richard Malaby traveled from his Washington, D.C., home to check out the Crocker House Country Inn for the first time.
His plane landed in Bangor and as he drove through Dedham to get to the property that he was considering purchasing from then-owner Bill Moise, he looked out at Phillips Lake, which was still covered in ice in early April.
“It kind of scared the hell out of me,” Malaby said. He had just traveled from the land of cherry blossoms in full bloom.
Four decades later, Malaby and his wife, Liz, have sold the business to Robert and Janette Noddin and their son, Joshua Noddin.
