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 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.

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.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a lovely secluded lakefront cottage! The pond is clean and welcoming and the view is hypnotizing. You begin to relax as soon as you are within sight of the cottage. My husband and I wanted time away together and this offered everything we wanted and more. The location is perfect for visiting Bar Harbor, Acadia, Ellsworth, outlets, great restaurants, antiquing, on and on. Or just for staying at the cottage for days on end and enjoying the scenery. :-) Cindy, the owner and host, was welcoming and ready to help us in any way she could. She was only a phone call away. And with the help of VRBO and Cindy, we were able to spend two more days at this lovely retreat. Hoping to return again..

Loved it very nice.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Beautiful scenery at all angles of the cabin. Would tell anyone and everyone to stay here. Close to a town that has anything you might need. Great restaurants in Ellsworth. Bring a canoe or Kayak to get on lake so pretty and quiet.

Owner's Response: I always ask tenants to clean up after themselves before they leave,, wash the dishes, strip the beds, wash a load of towels just so I can get a jump start on the turnover between tenants. Most people have done an adequate job, but Beck Mulch nearly did all my work for me! I only had to make the bed with clean sheets and wash the floor! If I could, I’d give Becky 10 stars, lol. Thank you so much!

Fantastic quiet hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at Cindy's cabin and enjoyed every moment. Swimming in the lake was fantastic and easy, the bed was comfortable and we slept like babies with the breeze off the lake and the sound of loons callings, and the deck was the perfect place to relax and spend time. We enjoyed day trips to Deer Isle and Acadia, both of which were within an hour's drive. We hope to come back before long!

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.
