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. :)
Just an FYI, the camp road was repaired on May 26th, 2014, so you should have no trouble accessing the camp.

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Ellsworth: 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 Unique Benefits at this Cabin: 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 last year, 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.
