Located on Camden's prettiest street, a short walk to town but in a quiet neighborhood. Restored from top to bottom, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath Victorian farmhouse sits on the street that runs along the east side of Camden Harbor. It's a scenic 5 minute walk along the head of the harbor to town, the park, library and amphitheater, shops, restaurants, windjammer sailing and a public beach. One block the other way down the street is the public landing, where you can launch a boat or just admire the view of the outer harbor and Penobscot Bay.
The house is light and spacious, simply furnished with a mix of comfortable antiques and 'shabby chic.'Plenty of space to gather together or have some privacy. Very well suited to multigenerational groups.Securely fenced back yard for your dog Large airy living room with 2 french doors opening to a back porch ideal for reading or conversation.

Well behaved dogs (with a pet deposit) can enjoy the fenced backyard. Ample off-street parking and a 2 car garage. Relaxed, comfortable in-town Maine coastal summer life at its best-- 'the way life should be.'
We absolutely loved the Sea Street home! It has everything you could possibly need and really feels so cozy and comfortable. My husband and I visited with our two children (ages 2 years and 8 months old) as well as my brother (age 30) and my parents. The layout of this home was just perfect for our family. My parents were able to enjoy the first floor bedroom to themselves while all of the "kids" were on the 2nd floor. We also loved the backyard, especially for our toddler. We also used Midcoast Family Rentals for a crib and two buckets of toys, which was wonderful! Thank you, Joanne, for accommodating us last minute! We hope to be able to stay at your home again in the future! Highly recommend this property!!!
We loved this Sea St. house. Immaculate, well-maintained and a kitchen full of lots of gadgets and great appliances. Lovely fenced-in yard for our dogs. Lots of light, and just a short stroll to the harbor and downtown.
We've just finished our 3rd multi-week stay at Joanne's wonderful home. It is like taking a vacation at your favorite Aunt's...assuming that your Aunt had the place meticulously cleaned before your arrival, emptied all of the closets and drawers so that you've got more than enough room to store your "stuff", provided a superbly equipped kitchen, and left all the beds made for you! The house is comfortably and eclectically furnished and if the diverse art collection doesn’t delight you, surely the shelves full of wonderful books will. Its comfort level is so superior to most of the “vacation cottages” that we’ve rented over the last 20 years or so that it seems unfair to even put them in the same category as this delightful place.
The house is sponge-like in its ability to comfortably hold varying numbers of guests; over the years we’ve had as many as 3 dogs and 3 couples in residence, and we all had plenty of space to do our own thing or gather together to sit and tell tales. The house is also very comfortable when just the two of us were in residence with 2 dogs underfoot. Somehow we never felt like we were either squeezed in a space to small or rattling around in a space too large … the magic of a house with ‘good bones’.
We all spent hours out in the fenced yard and on the covered porch. No matter the time of day you could always find both sun and shade enough to satisfy everyone, and if you needed to be inside, there was always a cross breeze to remind you that you were in Maine, and on vacation…even if you were working on the computer!
Add to all of this a perfect placement on a quiet street that is just a few minutes’ walk from Harbor Park, the library (where something interesting is always happening), and Main Street. If you like boats, you’ll be fascinated by the ever changing procession of sail boats and power boats that visit or home port in Camden’s harbor. And, of course, all that Mid-Coast Maine has to offer is just out your door. There’s great food, music, art, architecture, crafts and fun just waiting to be discovered. Belfast, Searsport, Rockland, and Rockport are just a few of the places worth exploring if you are able to pull yourself away from Camden’s delights. And while you are out exploring, make sure that you get to at least one of the many Farmer’s Market in the area…you’ll be astonished at what you’ll find there!
I honestly can't imagine a nicer place to spend some time.
We took a three generation (ages 10 - 67) family vacation to Camden and the house was perfect for us all. Plenty of space to spread out and plenty of space to all sit together. The location is superb, a picturesque 10 minute walk to the harbor and village, which has plenty of shops for everything you need for your stay in Camden. The house was immaculate and extremely well stocked, we had fun completing jigsaws and playing the board games that were offered. We enjoyed our morning tea and coffee out on the back porch and our family dinners in the evening around the large dining table. The kids loved that we could walk to end of the street where they could climb on the rocks and watch the boats come and go out of the harbor. Camden is a great base to explore lots of other places, the beach at Lincolnville was within a 10 minute drive, we had great food at the Pig Out BBQ in Belfast, enjoyed visiting many lighthouses including Pemaquid Point which had a great cafe and gift shop next door to it. In Camden itself there is an abundance of gift shops, restaurants, book stores, art galleries, food stores and ice cream stores. You can take one of the boat tours right in Camden harbor and there is a small beach off Bay View Street, about a 20 minute walk from the house. i would have no hesitation in staying here again should I ever find myself back in Camden. Joanne was an absolute delight to talk to and very efficient with the paperwork. We sampled the food at Cappy's including the bakery, Fresh, Camden House of Pizza, River Ducks Ice Cream and the Mariner's Diner, all were very good. We also ate at The Lobster Pound in Lincolnville so some of us could sample the lobster. The food was good and the wait staff were great, our server brought out a live lobster and showed the kids how she could send it to sleep! A fantastic time was had by all in Camden.
Joanne's lovely house in Camden, Maine was the ideal spot for a 3 generation get together for my family. The beds were comfortable and plentiful and no one was tripping over any one else. Plenty of room to spread out!
The location is near perfect with an easy walk to downtown Camden and a 2-block walk to the public boat launch. A real bonus was the 2-car garage; we were able to keep our motorcycles and kayaks safe and sound. The fenced in back yard is lovely and handy for those that have dogs (which we did). My favorite space was the covered back porch - got very nice morning sun and was shaded when afternoon temps rose.
Can't recommend this house enough. I'd rent from Joanne again in a heartbeat. The welcoming care package that she provided was a very nice touch!
We have been coming to Camden for many years, usually staying with our parents who live here. On this occasion, our daughter was getting married in Camden and we needed to have a base of operations. This home worked perfectly for us. It is beautifully maintained, well equipped and spacious, easily fitting two families, including a 13 month old. Joanne was extremely helpful and accommodating, ensuring that we were able to rent equipment for the baby and generally making us welcome. We could not have picked a better property.
Camden, 'where the mountains meet the sea,' home of the Maine windjammer fleet and Camden Hills State park. Centrally located to explore the entire mid-coast region. Fine area for 'foodies' with great restaurant selection, farmers' markets and local specialties, including plenty of lobster. Penobscot Bay with ferries to the islands and some of the world's best sailing and sea kayaking. An outdoor paradise with hiking, biking, swimming (both salt water and fresh) and scenic vistas wherever you turn. Unique local shops and galleries. Visit local artists in their studios or view their work in the Farnsworth museum. Friendly relaxed town, abundant natural and cultural resources for the entire family.
