"From my first visit three summers ago I felt like I was coming home as I drove down the lane to this bit of paradise by the sea. Each visit has held its own wonderful gifts. The view is beyond spectacular and for me nothing beats watching the water, mountains & sky as they change throughout the day. This year's surprise was seeing a bald eagle fly over the beach twice and once over my head as I sat on the deck! Dee has created a comfortable oasis where one can step away from the bustle of life, yet have easy access to Blue Hill, Ellsworth & Acadia National Park. One of my dreams is to return to experience the area as things start to slow down with the hint of autumn in the air. Thank you Dee for sharing this home away from home!"

"We spent a week at the Patten Bay Chalet at the end of August. I have to admit that we have rented houses before but the Chalet was more than I expected. First of all I felt it was in a very peaceful, quiet area. We hardly saw anyone else when we were there. It is also convenient to town as Ellsworth, for groceries and restaurants, which was 5 to 10minutes by car away.
We spent a few days down by the beach. The beach was shale and very private. I think we were the only ones using it during the week there. The kids spent hours looking for sea glass on the beach and were even able to do some wading/swimming in the water. The grill worked great and the fire pit was added bonus. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows and making smores a couple of nights while we were there.
Inside the Chalet the kitchen was very up-to-date with modern appliances. Every kitchen tool, pot/pan and dish was available so all you needed to bring was food. We spent many of the nights and mornings reading reading in the open family room and sunroom. The kids enjoyed the downstairs as there own space. They watched movies from the available collection which was a fair size. They also spent time playing games from the game closet.
The owners were very helpful when booking the trip and we even had the opportunity to meet Mac.
Overall, we all enjoyed our vacation in Maine. The kids are already asking to go back and I would have no hesitation to going back to the Chalet. I wholeheartedly give the Chalet two thumbs up."

"This is truly a “tranquil retreat” in a beautiful setting. The house is comfortable and thoughtfully constructed. The high ceilings and the curved bank of windows facing the pond allows for a beautiful view and a feeling of being a part of the quite pine forest. The carved spiral staircase to the second floor is gorgeous and the attention to detail in the house is in sharp contrast to what is seen in most rental properties. I’m sure this is because the owner’s built the house without ever intending to rent it. I hope they continue to do so as we loved our stay and hope to return next year. We would recommend it without hesitation."
