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. There is no public boat launch on the lake, so only bring canoes or kayaks that are light enough to carry down the hill yourself & back up again.

Secluded cabin with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Her cabin is a wonderful slice of the good life. You can tell the quality in which she takes care of it. Everything we needed was there, washer/dryer, kitchen etc. Plus everything we didn't realize we needed. Like time on a peaceful lake, in a wonderful cabin with a fantastic screened in porch where we ate most of our meals. The cabin has a peaceful energy about it and I wish I could live there all the time! The beds are comfy, as are the chairs and couch. We enjoyed renting a canoe for the week and fishing off the pier as well as exploring the lake. It is about a 45 min drive to acaida, and more time if you include traffic. The lake was nice and clean, as was the cabin itself.

Relaxing get away!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has everything you need for a relaxing get away. The view from the deck is beautiful! The pond is a great place to spot a loon and to kayak. You will enjoy this cabin and truly feel like you are away from it all.

Relaxing and private

  • 5 of 5

Great deck for reading, dock was great for swimming, nice pond for kayaking with the loons. Centrally located for excursions to Acadia, Blue Hill/Deere Isle, and even a movie on a rainy day in Bangor.

Great Cozy place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rustic cottage, reminds me of my grandparents cottage. It is very clean and has everything you'd need to enjoy piece & quiet. Having breakfast in the morning on the deck was fantastic! We would defiantly love to come back & stay here again.

Thanks Cindy for opening up your cottage to my family.

The LOONs were great

  • 3 of 5

Dirt access road to cottage (1/4 mile) is in terrible shape. Thought I'd lost a muffler first time driving in off US 1 .

The cottage was comfortable and well equiped . View of the pond was beautiful. Bathroom was VERY nice and appliances were first class.

Owner's Response: There was a lot of rain this spring and the road was a bit washed out, but it has been repaired now. It should be ok for the rest of the season.

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.
