Built in 1879, Camp Galashiels has been in the same family since 1905. The cedar-shake covered cottage includes a wrap-around living room and dining room, bathroom, galley kitchen with modern appliances, and one bedroom on the first floor, with two more bedrooms on the second floor. A covered veranda surrounds the cottage on three sides. The back deck offers a protected view of the spruce woods.The cottage overlooks Walker's Beach, with a private path to the beach. A private dock with deep water anchorage invites swimming, fishing, and boating. Public boat ramps are located nearby, and kayaks can be rented in Friendship village. A tennis court is available right on Martin Point. A full spectrum of summertime activities is available within a 45 minute drive from Boothbay to Camden, but here you can enjoy the real Maine in a secluded fishing village - lobster available right from the docks! Relax; enjoy sea and shore activities right at your doorstep in rustic elegance and seclusion!
We inherited this property from Betsy's parents - we are the 4th generation to be blessed with being the caretakers of this special place! It was purchased by Betsy's great-grandfather in 1905. We appreciate and enjoy being able to share our cottage with others.
There is no place quite like mid-coast Maine. The ocean, beaches, islands, people - all combine to make Friendship a special place! Because it is a working fishing village, it retains the real Maine value and peaceful atmosphere while being close enough to the tourist towns of Camden and Boothbay Harbor for entertainment.
The deep water dock, private path to the beach, and big wooden swing on the porch with its sweeping view of Muscongus Bay all combine to provide each vacationer with variety and comfort for the perfect Maine stay. Come see for yourself!
The many towns within a 45-minute radius of Friendship offer art, historical, and marine museums, golf, sail and motor excursions, island ferries, fine dining, hiking, aquarium, shopping, festivals,and lighthouses. Information on all this is available at the cottage. Beach combing, boating, swimming, tennis, birdwatching, fishing and hiking are available on Martin Point.
