CASTLEVIEW BY THE SEA, -A CAMDEN OCEANVIEW HOME

Camden House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Castleview by the Sea is the only Camden accomodation located on the waterside of the ocean view section of Camden's only historic district ---- offering bay views from your bed or private balcony!! And it's a very short stroll to famous Camden Harbor bustling with sailing vessels from around the world

Perfect family reunion compound. 3 separate private spaces for group vacations of eight or fewer people.

All of the dramatic rooms have furniture on private balconies to relax enjoying ocean views. Private baths, TV, air conditioning, with unique decor, and queen or king beds.

There are 3 bedrooms, one of which is the Gatehouse Suite - an open concept living space of LR, Bedroom & kitchen. There are lovely common areas for the you to enjoy.

The property can be rented with attached 'overflow' or 'in-law' apartment sleeping 4, with another full separate kitchen.

The house may be rented weekly or monthly at special rates.

Here's the CRUCIAL DIFFERENTIATION

Exactly why is Castleview By The Sea different than other Maine Coast rental properties ? Good Question ! First off,there are only two architectually dramatic Castles in Maine, and both of these truly grand wonders are perched directly next door to Castleview By The Sea, which if course is where our unique name comes from ! And what a unique bird's eye view of them you get from Castleview--these proud sentinels of days gone by. Drinking in the castles romantic turrets, curved roofs, spires, chimneys and inspiring stone walled lanes, is almost like walking into an enchanting fairy tale by the sea.

And it doesn't end there ! Our name also promises ocean views ---along with the castle views---so we deliver that too. In fact, guests see castles and ocean from whatever room and private view deck they are in (or on) at Castleview By The Sea ! Our difference might be called 'bygone inspiration'

We've been asked what the 1856 charm of Castleview is. Simply out, it's gleaming wide pumpkin pine floors, hand hewn ceiling beams,historic stained glass, and three working fireplaces, and uniquely decorated rooms with wonderful bedding. So dream the breeze away from bistro tables on rolling green lawns or from adirondek chairs or white wrought iron furniture, while enjoying our gardens and fountains. Yes, we're different and are located right across the street from the famous Whitehall Inn and Vincent's restaurant--which is the nik name of Camden's world renowned poet, Edna St Vincent Millay. The stunning Whitehall lobby is adorned with a prized collection of photos taken during the filming of the movie PEYTON PLACE in Camden during the 1950's. Stroll across the street to Vincent's for dinner. You won't be disappointed ! Then walk back to your own private deck for star gazing, before a comfy nights rest.

We've been called the most unique acommodation on the Maine coast --------

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1994

The fabulous beauty and unique setting cannot be found anywhere else.The historic features of Castleview will delight. What about Camden people ? Owner has traveled the world far and wide and has never seen a prettier place with such a wide array of cultural desirability,of artists, writers, sailors and friendly well traveled people to interact with every day.The diversity of the place can be astounding once you soak it all up !

Castleview is a lovely historic property located in one of Camden's most sought after neighborhoods on the 'water' side of High Street. The views of Penobscot Bay across sweeping lawns of majestic homes are breathtaking. It is just a short stroll through the historic district of grand homes and gardens to the bustling Camden center with its scenic harbor crammed with elegant sailing yachts and Windjammers. Unique shopping and dining abounds along the waterfront. Built in 1856, the classic Cape boasts unsurpassed charm with its 3 fireplaces, private balconies, porches and stunning water views from all guest rooms.

A LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I stayed here for a couple nights and could not have asked for a better place. Bill was super hospitable, had great dinner recommendations, and suggested some incredible hikes around the area. He was knowledgeable about Camden and we had the best time staying at Castleview by the Sea. There is nothing quite like waking up and seeing the incredible view from your windows, and walking past beautiful homes to visit the historic town for the afternoon. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat in Camden.
