Welcome to our Amish-built cabin, completed in December 2016 (which explains the snowy views). The interior is entirely knotty pine (floors, walls and ceilings);there is a large screened porch. The house sits on 3 secluded acres, 250 feet from the road; a small stream runs through the property. Wild turkeys run through the backyard, and you can sometimes hear the loons on Leonard Lake. Ellsworth abounds in interesting restaurants and summer activities and is 20 minutes from Acadia National Park.

The space

This is a unique modular cabin! Constructed in Pennsylvania in an Amish factory, it was delivered in 2 pieces and lowered by giant crane onto the full basement foundation. It has many charming features, such as the very wide farmhouse windowsills and the Danish wood stove. With a nod to resource conservation, the water heater is on-demand (endless hot water!), and the toilet is dual flush. There are 2 bedrooms and one bath; you will have the bedroom adjacent to the bath. There are ceiling fans throughout the house, and many outlets for charging your devices, especially in the guest bedroom.

Guest access

You will have access to all parts of the house, except for the second bedroom and the basement. The kitchen, with gas stove, is available for your breakfast use, and you're welcome to keep a small amount of food in the refrigerator. You will have a designated cabinet shelf in the bathroom for your toiletries.

Interaction with guests

I'm a lifelong summer resident of this part of downeast Maine and can provide you with a wealth of information about hiking, swimming, lobster, and other Maine summer pleasures. I will be working during the day and may not be around, but I hope that guests will also be out enjoying all that this area offers.

Other things to note

The front of the driveway, along the road, is shared by 2 other households. The driveway is L-shaped, with the shorter portion connected to the road; this is where 2 trailers sit. The rest of the driveway, to the cabin, is some 200+ long. The view of the trailers is largely blocked by trees.

I have a one-year old golden retriever, Hazel, who is still quite a puppy!

Thank you for your very nice review, Becky. Would be delighted to host you again--please come back and see more of Acadia. Sounds like you got to Schoodic Peninsula--my particular favorite--yay!

The perfect place to relax in a warm and quiet atmosphere. If you wanna visit Acadia but don't wanna be in a touristic hotspot but enjoy some downtime and go running next to a beautiful lake in the evening, there is no better place for you

Thanks for your nice review, Anna. My kids also enjoy running along Leonard Lake, which is such a pretty lake. I'm glad you enjoyed the quiet and solitude.

This place is amazing. Brand new and adorable little 2 bedroom cabin in the woods. Susan must make her almond cookies for everyone. They are delicious. She has put together a book of pamphlets and suggestions that was very helpful. We definitely would stay here again and for a longer time.

Thank you for your nice review, Bj. I was happy to provide suggestions for things for you to do that you seem to have enjoyed--I still need to go on the Margaret Todd this year. Maybe in the fall. And I love the kitchen towel you left! Thank you.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Susan's cabin for a couple days while visiting Acadia. We could not recommend it more! The cabin was beautiful and pristine, and equipped with so many splendid things that made it a joy to come home to after a long day of hiking -- like its wood-burning stove (which Susan had going for us when we first arrived), delicious gluten-free almond cookies, and an incredibly thorough information binder that Susan prepared to help us plan out our treks and meals. Susan was a wonderful host and we will certainly be coming back if we make it up to Acadia again!

I am a semi-retired cancer researcher now working as a freelance medical writer at home. My husband is a professor of environmental engineering. My interests: Classical music, photography, hiking, bicycling, reading, bird-watching, gardening, cooking, travel....Our house is filled with books and many eclectic touches: unusual musical instruments, our son's extensive insect collection from the Pacific, our daughter's art from Paraguay and S.Africa. We live in a lush, green suburb of Clemson, filled with giant ancient oaks--a great neighborhood for running.
