About Kate Cohen

Kate grew up on Bay View Street in Camden and upon returning to start her life here with her husband Alex, knew this was the perfect house for them to begin. With 4 young children now, they have moved out to beach, but keep Bay View Cottage in the family. We love living in the area and feel there is no better place to explore and experience. Alex is full time Real Estate Broker at Camden Real Estate and Kate is a busy mother to four and a Clinical Social Worker. We are accessible and attentive to our renters, we will probably bump into each other in town or out on the water!

Kate Cohen purchased this house in 2001

Why Kate Cohen chose Camden

Bay View Cottage is a special home. It has warm and comfortable feel to it. The porch is a perfect spot for taking in the sounds of the harbor and people watching, as Bay View Street is a popular running/walking route for many. We are just a handful of doors form the only sandy beach in town and a 5 minute walk to downtown Camden and the harbor.

What makes this house unique

Please read our reviews.... Our home has been lovingly cared for and decorated to make your vacation the best experience possible.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The memories are priceless and the house was absolutely perfect - loved the old charm with the comfy updates and all the amenities that you provided to make our visit so totally enjoyable. The family loved the proximity to town, adored the beach, the granddaughters found their 3rd floor space really really special - and all the little side trips to Graffam Bros. for lobster rolls and Owls Head General Store for the winning burger -these two places along with your house will hopefully bring us all back again. but really really I have to say, you provided for us as guests in a way that far exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in many rental homes but none can compare to all the thoughtfulness you put into providing everything to make our visit so exceptional.

Beautiful Camden Autumn Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family recently stayed at this historic gem in mid-coast Maine , it was the quintessential Camden experience. The home was warm on chilly nights, comfortable and wonderfully decorated with New England nostalgia. Filled with all the materials you would need to go sight seeing or to simply stay in and read for the evening. We felt the beds were superb and had some of the best night's sleep there. The kitchen was so large and easy to use, it was tough to get out to enjoy the many fabulous restaurants in town. The children loved the 3rd floor and played up there for hours with the games. There was plenty of space and extra bedrooms. The owners were so helpful in helping us find lobsters, beaches to visit, and activities suitable for our young children. Truthfully, this was just a wonderful renting experience, we really only needed to bring our own clothing and food to make the time spent here complete.
The view from the front yard of Mt. Battie and the surrounding park was so beautiful to watch turn from green to golden red and orange. Walking into town was such a delight, the quaint quiet streets nearby were perfect for bike riding, hill walking and jogging. If you want to be in town and experience the local culture, as well as have easy access to nearby interests, I can not imagine a more perfect house rental in the Camden area. We will be returning soon.

Golf get away

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home in walking distance to shops, restaurants and beach. Charm of older home with fabulous updated kitchen, 2 modern bathrooms, and comfortable beds. This home is equipped with everything one's need for a home away from home. Owner and cleaning staff very pleasant and responsive. Enjoy scenic & challenging golf at Samoset and Rockland Country Club, fabulous views from Mt. Battie, a walk out the breakwater to Rockland Harbor Lighthouse, and excellent restaurants such as Atlantica and Fresh. We will be back.

Very disappointing

  • 1 of 5
The house was generally sad , the photo's were probably old ones , it was very disappointing to say the least . The BBQ area needed a good clean , the chairs on the porch needed to be replaced and the sofa was well worn . No I would not recommend this place to anyone.

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family (ranging in age from 8 to 52) had a wonderful week in Maine, and this house was the ideal base for that week. The owner is a pleasure to deal with, the kitchen is a delight to work in, the beds are comfortable, the location is terrific (walking distance to all sorts of things), and the porch is a dream. To be honest, I could have spent the entire week sitting on the porch, and I did that plenty, but we also hiked, shopped, went sightseeing...

The hike up the front of Mt Battie was more challenging than we expected, but it was beautiful, and we all managed fine. Going to meet Rosie and Opal at Hope Elephants was a highlight for the whole family, and I can't say enough about what a noble mission the place has. Go see them! It's not far; you won't regret it.

We had a great breakfast at Boynton-McKay and exceptional dinners at Long Grain and Comida Latin Kitchen. If you find yourself in Damariscotta, S. Fernald's Country Store has excellent sandwiches, and Round Top ice cream is not to be missed. And Borealis Breads has tasty breads whether you buy them at the bakery itself (Waldoboro) or one of the markets that carry them.

If we were to stay in Camden again, we would absolutely stay in this house. We highly recommend it.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Great house in a perfect location. Easy walk to town and shops and loads of restaurants. (And you can have more than one drink because you can walk home!) Also easy walk to beach. Great kitchen and deck area.
