About Linda Norton
At present I live in the house and spend my time as a professional artist. Having had various careers including Equestrian in Jumping, Dressage and Saddle Seat riding and breeding National Show Horses in Connecticut. I also have worked in several Paint Deptartments and run my own business in Color Consultation and design. I spent most of my years in CT and my children still live there. I visit occassionally but am in Maine year round and maintain my art studio here.
Linda Norton purchased this apartment in 1910
Why Linda Norton chose Camden
This is a family homestead purchased by my Grandfather just before he married my Grandmother. I moved into the house in 2000 and added the apartment in 2005. Origionally from Connecticut I have spent all of my childhood summers in Camden at this house. My Children also spent summers here and my Grandchildren visit when possible. I have loved this area all my life and now record it in watercolors which I show across the country in juried art shows.
What makes this apartment unique
When I added the apartment my design was intended to enhance the exsisting house and have it blend in to the original design. The house itself has not been changed since my Grandparents lived in it and is true to its time. I considered the warmth and quiet elegance something that I wished to maintain in the house and mirror in the apartment. Giving it warmth and solitude in tune with the era of the overall property. Yet close to a multitude of interesting sites to visit and enjoy.
Guestbook comments from the manager
I was so sorry to read the previous review as this couple mentioned none of this to me during their stay. I know I can never change one's opinion, but, in the words of my current renters... "This recently-built, lovely carriage house, located over the studio of one of Maine's most accomplished artists, has everything one needs to enjoy a delightful vacation in Camden. Camden is busy in the summer, just as Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. That's because it is idealic in the summer and the autumn. But sleeping in cool breezes and total quiet of this cottage is far superior to being awaken by the cleaning crew in a hotel."
Again, each person has his or her own opinion, which, sadly, I cannot change. My cottage is always clean and inviting. I will, sadly, agree to disagree.
