Overview

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.

Tiny house in relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending our 10th anniversary in this adorable cabin! The complete kitchen allowed us to buy food to make our own meals, which saved sone money. The cool Maine nights were the perfect sleeping weather!

Wonderful little vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this little cottage for a week. It's about 15 minutes away from grocery stores (which was very convenient). And 30-40 mins away from Bar Harbor and Acadia. A state park with beach access is right across the street and more beach is right down the road. This place does not have a television or a wifi, which, for us was a huge plus! The owners live close by and made themselves available if we had any questions. It was a great place to stay, highly recommend it!!

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.

Cottage is located adjacent to Lamoine State Park. 400 yards to dock and surrounding shoreline. Peninsula and road end 1 mile away at Lamoine Beach. Both offer shore and beach access, picnic areas, boat ramps, and rest rooms. State park has great play ground and dock area. Fresh water swimming 1 mile thru woods or road. Lots of walks and all still quiet and simple. Easy access to Acadia, Downeast, and Ellsworth.
