Ellsworth Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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. :)

About Cindy Hagerthy

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

Why Cindy Hagerthy chose Downeast and Acadia

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Second year here - wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this wonderful property. It is secluded, quiet, the perfect distance from Acadia without being in the midst of a busy tourist town and is equipped with everything you need to be comfortable. We spent a week and hiked several trails in Acadia National Park, took a bio lumenescence kayak excursion in Castine and a photo safari out of Seal Harbor (both highly recommended.) We spent every night gazing at the star-filled sky above the cabin and every morning enjoying the deck and the beautiful lake. On our last morning, we saw the loons we had been hearing almost every day - it seemed they floated by to say hello (and good-bye until next year). Cindy has thought of everything and we highly recommend her property - it was built as a family "camp" and you will feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. Loved it! and plan to return again next year.

Great - As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over labor day weekend. The house itself is great and in a great location. The pictures and descriptions are an accurate reflection of the house and the owner is great to work with.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

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.

2nd time here!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

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.

Our Stay

  • 4 of 5

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.
