Overview

Camden Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Come to the mid-coast of Maine and step away from your everyday routine. Put your ‘indoor’ life aside while you relax and breathe-in the beauty and tranquility of Maine, out of doors.

This classic, ‘Wicked Cute,’ Maine camp is the perfect get-away to refresh your spirit. Simple and cozy, it provides just what you need – a worry free departure from the hustle and bustle.

But there is more to this camp than just the cabin. This vacation also has you living on a lake with your own private dock! Step outside and take in what Norton Pond has to offer – swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing, tanning, napping, relaxing. The adventures are yours for the making.

And your water adventures are not limited to Norton Pond. A waterway connects Norton Pond to the majestic Lake Megunticook, another premier Maine natural resource.

Should you decide to venture from the camp, you will find you are only minutes away from unique Maine attractions including the fabulous Maine coast and its many harbor towns. Camden, one of the most popular Maine coastal villages is only 10 minutes away. Besides the parks, views, dining, and shopping Camden offers, the city also grants you easy access to supplies such as groceries, fuel, laundrymats, etc.

There is also a convenience store nearby for essentials. They also carry what the locals consider the best pizza in the area!

Whether you are on your own, with your significant other, some friends, or with the kids in tow, this ‘wicked cute’ camp will be good for what ails you. Come experience it!

Additional Information:

Sleeping Arrangements? There is one bedroom with a Queen-sized bed on the first floor. Two twin beds are upstairs in the loft. A futon in the living room makes a bed as well.

Bathroom? There is one bathroom with a sink, toilet, and hot water shower.

Bringing A Boat? There is a public boat launch on Norton Pond and your boat can be moored at your private dock. (Water skiing, tubing etc are allowed. However no single passenger powered vehicles are allowed such as Jet Skis). There is room to stow your boat trailer at the camp.

Bringing Bikes? The roads around Norton Pond are a combination of paved and gravel with very little traffic so the kids have some great options. The roads further out are standard, two-lane country roads – better reserved for the biking enthusiast.

Exercise? Relaxing is a great form of exercise for those of us needing to get away. But if you also want to get physical while you are at the camp swimming is an obvious choice. Running/Jogging/Walking is also an option. Roads around the Pond are low traffic and scenic – very much outdoors! And country roads further out will give you all the long distances you could want.

Pets? Pets are welcome (see our policy in the rental agreement). We do expect you to clean up after them though. This includes picking up anything they leave behind – whether on our property or on that of your neighbors on the Pond.

Things To Do? (Get ready - It's a long list!)

Enjoy birding, swimming, mountain climbing, hiking, beach walks, clamming, sight seeing, nature walks, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, biking, windjammer cruises and day sailing on schooners, golf, whale watch cruises, museums, shops, restaurants, galleries, concerts, art shows, auctions, island hopping, farmers market. . . And this is only what we have come up with so far. . . .

Also:

Acadia National Park (1 1/4 hrs north)

L.L. Bean & Outlet shopping (1 1/2 hrs south)

Lobster Festival, Blues Festival, Windjammer Weekend,

Boat Shows

Sandy Lincolnville Beach, Lobster Pound and ferry to Islesboro (5 miles east to the coast)

About John Zacharias

Your hosts are two siblings and their spouses. (The picture shows brother and sister during one of their Maine adventures).

One couple lives in the Camden area and the other is from western Michigan. All of us have fallen in love with this part of Maine and are excited to share it with you.

John Zacharias purchased this cabin in 2010

Why John Zacharias chose Camden

While our childhoods were spent in Minnesota and Michigan, our more recent experiences together have been here in Maine. Maine's climate is similar to that of our hometowns' so in many ways it reminds us of 'home.' As adults we have shared vacations here, reunions, and most recently a family wedding. With each visit Maine becomes more endearing. So endearing, in fact, that one of your host couples actually relocated to the area permanently a number of years ago.

This patch of land here in the 'mid-coast' of Maine lets you feel like you are getting away while still having so many things to do. Whether you want to be alone, be part of a crowd, or a little bit of both - you will reconnect with yourself here.

What makes this cabin unique

Many of us at Norton Pond have our routines.

It may be waking up early and taking a fresh cup of coffee out to the dock to watch the day begin.

It may be putting on some tennis shoes and taking a brisk walk to get the blood flowing.

You may see one of our neighbors take a daily swim - a routine she enjoys every day she is at Norton Pond, regardless of the temperature or time of year!

There are so many wonderful choices. . . What will your Norton Pond routine be? Whatever it is, be prepared to have it relax, refresh, and re-energize you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cute camp was perfect—even my visiting sister and brother agreed. It reminded us of our childhood camp experiences. Thank you. Also, the camp was better supplied than we were used to, a very pleasant surprise.

Adorable and Small

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in September 2014. We can echo all the other reviews regarding the cottage and the variety of activities, restaurants and lobster pounds in the area, as we have been to Norton Pond many times. I would add that the cottage is lovingly and tastefully decorated in cottage colors-- coordinated fabrics and folkart-- adding to it's attractiveness. The kitchen, although small, is excellently stocked with cooking pots, utensils, serving dishes, and china. For us, the only negative would be the difficulty in housing more than 4 people comfortably (preferably 2 adults, 2 children) and entertaining more than 4 only because of the size. It worked perfectly for the 2 of us and we'd definitely return in the future. John, the owner, is very accomodating and a joy to work with, and his sister and brother-in-law next door were extremely helpful when we misplaced our house key. Having them nearby was a big plus.

This was our second year at Wicked Cute, and it was as wonderful as our first time last year. There is such a peace on Norton Pond! Rented Kayaks from Duck Trap(wonderful guy to work with) again and enjoyed Norton and the bigger Lake. Went sightseeing a little more this year and there is a wealth of places to visit, but it is always great to head back to Wicked Cute and that amazing view! Really enjoyed the farmers markets and the varied things they have.

Great place to stay near Camden

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the Wicked Cute Camp and loved it. The camp is adorable, well-maintained, and the view of the lake is spectacular. We enjoyed spending days exploring Camden, Lincolnville, and surrounding towns, but we also spent several days just enjoying spending time on the dock. The water is clear and refreshing, and we woke up to loon calls on several mornings.

Things to do in the area - we recommend doing a self-guided winery tour - Cellardoor, Sweet Grass, Savage Oaks. We also took a sunset cruise on the ocean from Camden on the Olad. Great little boat. Also check out the Windsor Chair maker in Lincolnville. We also rented a moped in Camden and tooled around for a day.

Restaurants - Seabright was amazing and unique flatbread pizzas. Long Grain has quite possibly the best Thai food we've ever had. Seriously. We went twice.

It all came back to having a comfortable and quiet place to relax at the Wicked Cute Camp. We plan on visiting again - would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

LAKEFRONT PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I were looking to take a relaxing week off after a hectic spring, and this was the perfect place for us to do so! We absolutely loved everything about this cabin--the location is amazing (just about as close to the lake as a house can be, and it's an easy drive down to Lincolnville, Camden, Rockland, etc.), the cabin has absolutely everything you could possibly need (the kitchen is stocked with all the equipment you'd want for any sort of cooking, there are fresh towels and sheets all ready for you, and there's even cable TV and wifi for really rainy days), and I just can't speak highly enough about the way the owner, John, takes cares of the place and everyone who stays there!

Recommendations for people who are considering a trip to the Wicked Cute Camp:
-Rent kayaks so you can explore Norton Pond/Megunticook Lake, it's an awesome way to enjoy the gorgeous scenery
-Definitely take advantage of the gas grill for cooking dinner and the fire pit for roasting marshmallows
-Don't be afraid of the water being cold--we were there in early June but the water was a perfect temperature, and we swam off the dock every single day, rain or shine!

I can't recommend this place highly enough--if you're looking for a great lakeside cabin to relax in, this is the place!

We had a great time with our granddaughter at the Wicked Cute Cabin. We especially enjoyed the peaceful setting, the hospitality and access to miles of kayaking and the ability to cool off with a jump off the dock. Quarters are tight, but the cabin has all the comforts you need for a getaway. We'd highly recommend a stay.

Perfect base for exploring coastal Maine

  • 5 of 5
The "wicked cute camp" was a perfect base for us to explore coastal ME. Early October is perfect for "leaf peeping!" Highlights of this beautiful, comfy and clean cottage included morning coffee on the dock; sunsets, reflections of autumn leaves, and loons on the pond; the wonderful little town of Camden (great restaurants and shops) and Acadia National Park. The owners have thought of everything, and are responsive to one's questions --thanks for all the suggestions. Four women through the one bathroom was a challenge! Arrive before dark -- the woods are "dark and deep." We would love to return again!
