Downeast and Acadia House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bath, sleeps 1-10

Enjoy your Piece of Maine for a family vacation, a quiet getaway for two or a family get together. Fall asleep to the calls of the loons. Watch as an eagle swoops down to catch his dinner or a mother duck keeping her ducklings close at hand. Feel the serenity of Upper Patten Pond, while kayaking and canoeing around the many coves and inlets. Find your own secret fishing spot for the big one that didn't get away.

Child and pet friendly home with beautiful landscaped yard making it's way to the shore front. Master bedroom with balcony and private bath, granite counter tops, large deck overlooking a fire pit and private dock. The house has something for everyone. Wireless internet, satellite T.V., game room with pool table and darts. Looking for something a bit more cozy? Cuddle up in front of the large stone fireplace in the grand room or next to the hearth in the dining room w/gas stove. All towels & linens supplied, just bring your clothes and sense of adventure.

Upper Patten Pond is just 15 min to Ellsworth, the gateway to Downeast Maine, grocery stores, restaurants, LL Bean outlet, and Super Walmart. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are only 30 miles away, with hiking/biking trails, shops and several restaurants awaiting you. Take a ride on the Whale Watcher or a lobster boat and watch as the captain shows how the local lobstermen make their daily living. See seals, porpoises, and possibly a whale or two.

Head downeast to Schoodic Penninsula and see small fishing towns with local stores and restaurants. Winter Harbor Lobster Festival in August is always a good time. Lobster boat races, good food, crafts and a parade to end an eventful day.

Leaving this spacious home, with large yard, swimming, boating, private dock and fishing will be a challenge. Spend a rainy day browsing the huge selection of books and the famous 'Chicken Barn or antiqueing at the shops in town.

'Out to Camp'-Upper Patten Pond is spacious, luxurious, yet relaxing. Canoeing, kayaking and fishing in the early morning with the loons is a great way to start any day. Patten Pond is 3 miles long and 1 mile wide with coves and inlets waiting for you to explore. The calming and serene feeling you get from this vacation home is the answer to your busy, hectic routine at home. Come enjoy the beauty and forget the hustle and bustle you left behind

Gorgeous Home!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This home is absolutely stunning.

After looking through the photos we were really looking forward to vacationing here. The house was even more than we expected! The wood, the craftsmanship, the attention to detail – just wonderful!

We had a party of 7 adults and our pets and it was more than large enough to accommodate everyone. The open arrangement in the main living space was perfect!

The exterior was just as lovely as the inside. There is a large level private yard- perfect for your outdoor games. The landscaping was beautiful, the pretty benches and hidden nooks are perfect for relaxing and watching nature.

We kayaked, canoed and swam in the crystal clear water daily. The swing down by the water was so peaceful and while I brought a book to read- I was too mesmerized watching the water - seeing the loons swim and the fish jump out of the water and watching a variety of birds flying by- that I never actually read! The photo opportunities were spectacular!

The family of loons was always present and we also saw deer and even an eagle as we boated around the lake.

The nightly sunsets were gorgeous and after sunset we sat around the large fire pit roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. Most nights we played board games inside until the early hours of the morning. Many in our group slept in – and I enjoyed sitting out on the deck with my pups and a cup of coffee early in the morning listening to the birds and seeing what surprises nature had in store for me that day.

Bar Harbor was only about a 40 minute drive away and we took a few day trips in to explore the area. Downtown Ellsworth and the grocery stores are a very short drive away- yet when you are back at the house you feel so far away from everything and you are surrounded by the sounds of nature.

We had such a wonderful time- thank you for sharing your home with us!

True to the description,only better!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week at "Out to Camp". The house is beautifully maintained and true to the description on vrbo.

We were a group of 7 adults and 2 children. We had plenty of private space for all. My husband and I slept in the "daylight basement" with our twin 6 year old boys. There was plenty of space for us and all our stuff. The adjacent game room and walk out was perfect for the boys. The master bedroom and loft was used by my in-laws and sister in-law. There was plenty of space upstairs. All the rooms were spacious. The loft had a futon for sleeping, but proved to be too uncomfortable for sister in-law. The main floor bedroom, entry Hall, kitchen and dining was spacious and well equipped. The first floor bathroom was large enough for us to share.

The outside deck had brand new flooring and railings. With a nice breeze we were able to sit outside each evening and watch the boys swimming in the pond. We grilled most nights and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.

This was our first trip to Acadia. We were 30 minutes or so to the park at "Out to Camp". The road to and from was an easy drive past restaurants, shopping, etc. this made the location just fine, as we needed to get these services coming and going each day we ventured out.

This home is fantastic for a relaxing retreat in a beautiful, private setting.

Sunshine through the rain

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing!! We were a party of about 13, incliding 5 children. We had plenty of room for everyone. Even though it rained most of the week, we enjoyrd the indoor activities at the house. The house is nice and sucluded but close to lots of activities.

We enjoyed camp fires, kayaking, canoing, hiking antiquing, and so much more.

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and could not have been happier. The house is beautiful, clean, and felt just like home. We fished, kayaked, canoed, and swam; the lake was simply heaven. In fact, the only criticism I have is that the house was so wonderful that it made it hard to leave and explore Acadia. We did manage to visit Acadia and Bar Harbor, and get back for a nightly fire by the fire pit. Thank you so much to Marilyn and Arthur for helping to make our stay a wonderful experience that will give us a lifetime of memories.

INTOXICATION RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5

After a 15 Hr drive from New Jersey with traffic and six kids this was just what the doctor ordered. We arrived late at nite and found this abolutely wonderful cozy home. It rained alot while we were there but it did not matter the kids were never bored. We took advantage of all the great things. We kayaked in the early mornings,the kids fished and swam. they played basketball and sat around the bonfire roasted marshmellows. Bar Harbor and Acadia were really nice. We went sailing on The Margaret Todd a little chilly but beautiful we even saw a few porpoise. If I must say this is the perfect place to stay. It was very spacious and clean. We were so comfortable and relaxing it was hard to leave. Marilyn and Arthur were very gracious and kind, they made our stay even nicer.The loons were so beautiful to see and to hear. We are definitly looking forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: I keep telling myself that I am glad I found this new adventure. All my guests have been very nice and complimentary. The hard work and time is paying off when I hear how much fun they have had and how clean the home is. Talking with Michele and her family was good for us too. Next time Michele we definately need to come out for the Italian night. See you next year.

Upper Patten Pond is heaven in itself. There are, however, shops, restaurants, mini golfing and lots more heading towards the Ellsworth, Bar Harbor region. Going inland towards Bucksport, Belfast and Searsport you have even more shops, restaurants, antiques, and the Penobscot Narrows Observatory. Stay at the house and enjoy the calmness, peacefulness, swimming, loons, ducks and eagles. The house is well equipped for everyone in the family, wireless internet and satellite TV, game room and stone fireplace in the grandroom for those cool Maine nights. If you prefer a fire outside, the fire pit is a great way to watch for shooting stars or get your fill with samoas. Inside or out you will be right at home.

Other Activities: miniture golf
