|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
Indulge in the feeling of seclusion from an expansive deck overlooking a peaceful lake away from the hustle of everyday life. Enjoy daily swimming in the lovely gravel bottomed swimming area at the foot of the hill. Savor spectacular sunsets on the deck after supper. Cottage has 1 large kitchen/dining/living room with 2 separate bedrooms and one full bath. The front bedroom has a queen bed & lake views while the back bedroom has a forest view with a double bed. There is one large front deck, and 1 small screened in side porch.
I do use the camp myself when not rented & I have 3 Siamese cats that I bring with me. Please be aware of this if you have allergies. :)
Just an FYI, the camp road was repaired on May 26th, 2014, so you should have no trouble accessing the camp.

I am a retired travel agent & have traveled the world. In spite of the many beautiful places I have seen, to me my cottage is equal to them all. I love Siamese cats, spinning wool, knitting & baking.
Cindy Hagerthy purchased this cabin in 1957
I inherited this cottage from my parents who built it themselves with help from neighbors & friends in the 1950's. I spent nearly every summer here as a girl, swimming & boating with my family & friends. It feels remote but is close to shopping & entertainment although I find that I hate to depart once I'm there & only leave for groceries.
The cottage is approx 25 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, 20 miles to artsy Blue Hill, and within an hour of panoramic Deer Isle.
The cottage is on a hill overlooking the lake & is a small climb down to a gravel bottomed swimming area. There are few camps on this lake, so you will be unlikely to see very much of your neighbors. I had a new dock installed last year, so feel free to bring your own canoe or Kayak, or rent one, but there is no public boat launch on Upper Patten Pond. In other words, there's nowhere for visitors to launch motorboats, sailboats, or jetskiis. This does limit the noise on the lake so I consider it a benefit, not a fault.
My husband, 6 year old daughter and I had the opportunity to spend a relaxing week here in late July. It was a beautiful week in a gorgeous spot. I was concerned that the cabin is on a pond, however after doing a little searching online, I realized that this is a 740 acre pond! We saw a few people out enjoying the water, but overall it was very peaceful. The cabin is exactly as you see it, there were no surprises, it was clean, well organized, and Cindy is an absolute pleasure to work with. All questions prior to arrival were answered, and she greeted us on the day we arrived to give us a tour of the property and make sure we had everything we needed.
We spent time in Acadia biking, hiking, and relaxing at Sand Beach. We did venture into Bar Harbor but quickly realized that was to crowded for us, we were anxious to get back to our peaceful home and listen to the loons on the lake, and visit the fish my daughter named "Roxy". There are a lot of antique stores along the way, and Ellsworth/Bucksport are both a short drive away with nice family restaurant. We recommend Finns Irish Public House, Union River Lobster House, and Mainly Meat all in Ellsworth.
We are looking forward to coming back again, and exploring more of the area!
My husband and and I just spent 7 wonderful days at this very private and secluded cabin right beside a clean and refreshing lake! From the very minute we turned onto the road to the cabin we could feel the peacefulness all around us, Cindy the owner was waiting for us to arrive and she showed us all around and gave us all the information we needed about the cabin, Cindy is a super sweet lady and she had everything we needed, from the time we walked in We could just feel relaxation all around. The Kitchen was fully equipped with everything I needed to prepare anything I wanted, Big fridge to store my groceries, I fixed several meals! After a fun filled day in Acadia, Hiking, Rock Climbing, Shopping it was so nice to come back to a nice quiet secluded cabin and sit on the deck and listen to Mr Loon and a Bull frog (I named George) and take a nice refreshing jump off the dock into clean cool water, WOW! On several evenings my husband and I enjoyed a candlelight dinner on the nice screened-in porch just right off the living room. The bathroom was nice and fresh and a nice supply of Bath Face and Hand Towels! This place is among many that my husband and I have stayed at over the last 6 years of going to our favorite place to visit, Maine, and we consider this cabin our favorite and if you want a true Maine experience where you are in touch with nature, we recommend this cabin:)
The property is absolutely beautiful and private. We enjoyed swimming in the lake and relaxing on the screened in porch. It was the perfect combination of rustic yet comfortable. The only drawbacks were the condition of the dirt road leading into the property (good thing we had an SUV) and the travel time to Acadia (It took about 40 minutes to get there) neither of which relate to the property itself. You just need to be prepared. Other than that we truly enjoyed the property and recommend it. Great value for the price.
We stayed at this very relaxing home on the lake. The private dock was just a short walk down the hill. We enjoyed swimming in the lake and felt like we were the only people on the lake. The house had everything you could imagine to make you feel at home. Even had a lobster pot to cook our own lobsters. The sunset views from the back porch over the lake are spectacular. If you are looking for a home on the lake this is a perfect place to be.
The cottage has a beautiful view. It's very clean, quiet and comfortable. Easy access to sightseeing. The water looked inviting for swimming and boating, but we had a rainy, cold week during our stay. Still, we don't have any complaints. Our stay at the cottage was lovely. I do recommend the owners supply kayaks or canoe's. That would help the rental be even more enticing.
I grew up in Maine and my husband and I and children, before they grew up, have visited Maine on many occasions and have stayed in as many cabins. We were very pleased with everything and Cindy was very accommodating. The view from the living room and new deck, was gorgeous! It is very, very quiet on the pond, hardly seeing or hearing any other people, only the call of the loons. A friend brought us her kayaks and we had a fun time exploring the quiet Patten Pond. The only thing I would say about people with young children, the hill is very steep so they would have to be watched closely. The cabin had everything we needed plus more! I like having a washer and dryer so you don't have to pack quite as much or return home with a suitcase fill with dirty clothes. Although we didn't find any time to watch movies, there is a huge drawer filled with them. Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park is only a short drive away. Along with Blue Hill, Deer Isle and Stonington, Bucksport and Belfast in the other direction. I hope we get to return again sometime.
