Magnificent MAINE

“ Excellent ”
August 3, 2015
Where to start... the drive in on Cunningham Way was a delightful surprise! Very rustic, we were surprised at the first curve by a boulder that was bigger than our car! Glad we arrived in daylight as there were plenty of other dips and curves. The cottage has a very welcoming decor and an awesome view of the 330 plus acre pond. All the the appliances were of great quality and were put to good use. The bathrooms while small made optimal use of space. The fixtures were of a nice quality and the nice touches of the hosts own artwork set a nice relaxing tone. Even the placement of mirrors in the small master bath made doing my doing my hair a breeze. All the beds were very comfortable, with plenty of linens/blankets available. We enjoyed the screened porch. We made great use of the nice kayaks. The pond is beautiful and I will forever wonder who was more me or the loon who surfaced right next to the kayak! And the melodious and haunting calls of the loons! The firepit was also put to good use making smores with my granddaughters. We were in Maine for our sons wedding. All groom and his male attendants all dressed at the cottage, so many special memories were made at Patten Place. All in all the only complaint that I have was with the lack of comfortable seating in the living room area. The sofa sleeper has a broken wire and was propped up with some wood. And there is no seating where you can just kick back and put up your feet. If it had been rainy and we were stuck indoors this might have been more of an issue. And it is probably time to replace the old style TV's with flat screens since there is HD Dishnetwork. To end on a high note, it was wonderful to have needed soaps for laundry, dishwasher, bathing etc. as well as TP, tissues, paper towels, clothes pins, nite lights, throws to snuggle in on the cooler evenings. Also the distance to beautiful Acadia National Park, Bangor, Ellsworth, Bluehill and Bucksport meant easy access to groceries and great dining and outdoor activities. If you are 62 or older be sure to get your lifetime pass to National Parks and museums for only $10 and enjoy Acadia as much as possible. I highly recommend Patten Place and our hosts were very friendly, easy to reach and very caring in providing information and directions. I have no doubt, the owners with just a few tweaks will make this a ten star place to stay!
