About the property

1 loft bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Great cottage for a couple. Very quiet and private. Bocce court, outdoor grill and a large screened porch make relaxing easy. The cottage is located adjacent to Lamoine State Park and is one mile to the town park at Lamoine Beach. Kayaks and boats are easily launched at either location. Many outdoor activities and sight seeing trips are easily acessed, including Acadia National Park and the less traveled downeast coastal areas. Excellent dining and shopping are close by in Ellsworth. The owners live nearby and are always available if needed. Please read our Homeway reviews, people love the cottage and the location.

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 rustic cottage - perfect for those looking to get off the grid

  • 4 of 5

Great owners, very responsive. Wildlife abounds. Location next to Lamoine Park gives you a sense that you are alone in the woods! If you are looking for a place to get off the grid (meaning you can live without internet) this is it. Our fall stay included a nightly fire, watching deer grazing in the yard, and stargazing. Loved it!

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin in the woods. If you need a base to explore the area, or just a quiet place to get away, this place is just the ticket. Comfortable and cozy, with visits from deer and wild turkeys.

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!
