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. :)

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 in 2013, 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.
This property was exactly what we needed - it provided a quiet "home" for us as a getaway - and it was easy to get to Acadia National Park and the Mount Desert area for our poking around and exploring.
Love this lake - love this cottage. Super clean, quiet, and gives the illusion of seclusion but right off Route 1 and 15-20 min (no more) to great restaurants in Ellsworth and Blue Hill - 30-40 min to Bar Harbor and Acadia Natl. Park.
Our stay at the camp was wonderful. We found everything we could possibly need and more. Enjoyed BBQ's on the deck and spent as much time as possible on that cozy porch. The view was beautiful and hearing the loons calling was so cool.
We had a wonderful time at the camp. LOVED the views, great deck, screened in porch, the water was perfect temps, clean (no mucky side), private, couldn't see the neighbors, perfect for kayaking, canoeing. Kitchen had everything, just need a bit more counter space, but don't we all. Would awaken to loons calling each morning. Would love to return. Cindy was wonderfully attentive to our emails and needs. Accessed canoe through the Activity Shop-recommend.
I wanted some place secluded and I got it! The serenity was hypnotic and the view was unequaled! The location is ideal as it is a short drive to Belfast, a quaint place not to be missed, to Ellsworth for groceries and a beautiful library, as well as Acadia and Bar Harbor. (Maybe I shouldn't be telling you all of this! I don't want to be "out-booked" next summer!) Seriously, Cindy provides everything you could need and is a gracious hostess. I spent each morning doing yoga on the deck, where I also enjoyed an unrivaled sunset each evening. Look no further for a place to relax, regroup and rejuvenate! Kathy, Philadelphia suburbs
We had a wonderful week in early July at Cindy's rental. The cottage is secluded, yet close to Acadia, Deer Isle, and other areas for exploring. Cindy was very helpful in orienting us to the cabin, and on the several cool nights, the extra blankets came in handy. We enjoyed dinners on the deck while watching the sunset, and the kitchen was very well supplied (Foley fork for mixing dough - yes! Special tomato slicer - yes!). The swimming was excellent - clean water and a nice dock with storage, and the lake had plenty to explore by kayak. We observed eagles, herons, turtles, loons (with a young one), and a huge porcupine sitting on a rock by the lake. We highly recommend the nearby "Breadbox" bakery, particularly the peach pie and breads. This is a lovely rental with an owner who really cares for it, and we hope to return again.
