About Eric Hartman

We are Eric and Diane and have lived together in a 1790's farmhouse on our Lamoine property for 15 years. The cottage was built in 2005. We both work locally, Diane is a nurse mid-wife at our local hospital and Eric is a tennis teaching professional. We love to hike, kayak and garden in the summer months.

Why Eric Hartman chose Downeast and Acadia

We love our cottage in the woods and spend many nights there when we can. A great friend of ours built the cottage with lumber from our property and there is a lot of love built in. Our home and the cottage are located on a large piece of undeveloped land that has been in Eric's family for 40 years.

Quiet location, near Acadia

  • 5 of 5

"Up Back Cottage" in Lamoine, ME is the perfect little cabin in the woods. It is located within a,short drive of Acadia, Lamoine State Park, Lamoine Beach, Ellsworth (groceries), Bar Harbor and some great places to eat. It is rural but not desolate. It is also the only cabin on the property unlike rows of other cottages and cabins closer to Mount Desert Island. The cabin is hand-crafted from rough lumber and has many unique details. There is a bathroom with a shower, a kitchen with large refrigerator and a gas stove (no microwave), a dining area, a couch with a wood stove, and sleeping loft with a ladder and a fan. There's no air conditioning, however, we were there during a heat wave, but didn't need the fan at night. There is no wifi, but we were able to use our mobile phone internet with no problem. Outside, there is a gas grill and a small paved parking area. We appreciated and used the suggestions for places to eat and things to do from Eric, the owner. Overall our stay at was just what we had in mind.

If only we could give it a TEN!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely thrilled with our week-long stay at Upback Cabin -- it could not have been any better... Weather was glorious the first five days and the location was a perfect starting point for exploring Acadia, Schoodic Peninsula and ferrying to Swan's Island for a bike ride. We welcomed an overcast two days at the end of our stay, giving us an excuse to simply chill and fully appreciate Upback's coziness and fine craftsmanship. Only downside was middle of night ladder climbs to visit the bathroom but even that well worth watching the moon rise at the head of our very comfy bed. While I had anticipated spending much time reading on the screened-in porch, I actually found the dining nook to be my favorite -- the large bay window immersing you in the woods surrounding the cabin -- woods we much enjoyed walking in as well... Thank you, Eric, for sharing Upback -- we hope to be back!

Absolutely amazing! Cannot wait to book it again next year!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely perfect for a relaxing getaway! We stayed for a week in the beginning of June and had a wonderful time. It is quiet, comfortable, and private. It has the perfect amount of living space for two people. It's a perfect distance away from the hustle and bustle of bar harbor, we took many trips to the town and the park for the day. It was so calming to come back to the cabin to unwind at night. Eric and Diane are so great and very welcoming! We cannot wait to book it again for next year!

simple and lovely

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin is quaint, beautifully crafted, cozy and functional. I was provided towels and bedding, all very comfortable. It is very private surrounded by woods but within a comfortable 20 minute drive to Acadia which is what I came to explore. I also found many areas of beauty within a stones throw of the cabin itself thanks to the owner. Would highly recommend. I was off the grid re: WiFi which was find with me, I just wish I had brought something to play music and to watch a movie once.. Thanks for such a pleasant vacation.

Secluded,light filled & beautiful craftsmanship

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is such a great find. The open layout with the sleeping loft and the beautiful craftsmanship make it feel spacious and cozy at the same time. The bed, the pillows and the linens were all wonderfully cozy. There's so much natural light that comes in and the stove provides more than enough heat for chilly nights. The porch gives you a place that feels like your sitting in the middle of the woods. In the summer, it would be a perfect place to read a book and have a drink during a summer rainstorm. We cooked every morning and night that we were there, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of pans and baking dishes, and all the right kitchen tools. I was prepared for a lukewarm or very short hot shower, but the water stayed hot even with back to back showers after a long day of hiking. The location is perfect, secluded, but in between Acadia and Schoodic point so that you can get to either. Eric was a perfect host. Friendly, helpful, available to chat, lent us bikes, but also left us alone to enjoy. Finally they had backgammon. We play all the time, and had forgotten our board at home, so this was huge!

Thanks Eric and Diane!

Woodland Gem

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a perfect get away. Beauty inside and out! My fiance and I had a wonderful stay, Eric and Diane greeted us with open arms and welcomed us to their private paradise and answered any of our questions. Everything on the inside of the cottage was comforting and unique. We walked in and immediately relaxed and felt at home. Anything you could need was provided for you. Perfect place for two. It was just a short distance to town and beautiful coast of Maine. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to step away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy natures beauty the way it was intended. Would return in a heartbeat.
