Camden Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4-5
Avonlea Cottage is off the beaten path in the town of Washington (about 30 minutes from Camden and Augusta). There are approximately 150 feet of frontage on clear, clean Crystal Lake - a rural, quiet, peaceful area with minimal motorboat activity. The cottage sits on a 1/2 acre wooded property with path to water, which is about 100 feet from cottage. There is good swimming with a shoreline combination of small rocks, gravel and sand. Also available is a public beach down the road at the boat launch (carry-in only). There is good fishing with a chance to catch brook and brown trout as well as small and large mouth bass. There are pretty views across lake to undeveloped land. Neighbors are shielded from view by foliage. Canoe, picnic table, chairs, gas grill and dock are included. Guest must bring bottled water. Rental dates are Sunday to Sunday.
Lake Description: Crystal Lake is approximately 100 acres and has very little development. It is a quiet lake with minimal motor boat activity. Jet skis are banned from the lake and the public access is limited to carry in only. Wildlife includes nesting loons and families of ducks. Bald eagles can be seen occasionally. For anyone interested in fishing, the lake is stocked yearly with brown and brook trout. It also contains plenty of smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, pickerel, yellow perch, and sunfish.
Comments from previous renters: I enjoyed your place by Crystal Lake very much. You got me thinking of purchasing my own place by a lake some day.
We had a great time! We had a nice sunny week so got a lot of swimming and canoeing in.
We had a very peaceful week of swimming, sunning, reading, and writing! Your cabin is perfect.
I love this wonderful place. It's peaceful, beautiful, and comfortable.
Thanks for you interest: Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

About Chris Sewall or Linda Moran
My wife and I are from the area and currently live nearby. I grew up in the area. She moved to Maine as a teenager, which is where her mother is from. Her family spent every summer at a rented camp on a local lake.
Chris Sewall or Linda Moran purchased this cottage in 1997
Why Chris Sewall or Linda Moran chose Camden
We moved away from Maine for work. We missed Maine and would always come back for summers and stay at a rented cottage. We thought it would be nice to have our own cottage. Shortly after we bought it we moved back to Maine and this became our first home.
