I have purchased, renovated and rented real estate since the mid 1970's, first in Oklahoma, then in Connecticut and since returning to Maine in 2004. I spend a majority of my time practicing law with an office in Camden and the rest of my time I buy, renovate and rent real estate. My goal is to have rental property I would love to live in myself. I handle all of the design, decorating and upkeep personally and enjoy getting to know tenants from all over the U.S., Canada and overseas.
Susan Bryant purchased this apartment in 2004
I bought this property from one of my father's cousins. I loved the structure of the house and th location and wanted to renovate it from the first time I saw it. We gutted all three apartments and restructured all of them, while adding high end appliances, wood and glass cabinets made by a local cabinetmaker and furnished with china from Portugal, furniture from local stores and some local antiques..
The building is in town, but on a quiet side street. There is off street parking and laundry facilities on site (without charge). The building is within walking distance of everything in town. Each unit is well-airconditioned in the summer and warm and cozy in the winter - each with their own thermostat for complete control by the tenant. We provide amenities such as laundry detergent, shampoo, soaps, lotion. Kitchens are well-equipped with lovely china and glassware, plenty of cooking and baking utensils. We have added a patio and a privacy fence for 2013.
Just a block off the main drag it is ideal for exploring Camden, which in turn is situated nicely for day trips throughout the Mid-Coast area. Acadia National Park is about two hours north; lighthouses, lobster pounds (recommend McLoon's in Spruce Head, great location), and the Coastal Maine Gardens in Boothbay are within 90 minutes the other way. Apartment offers much more space than standard motel or studio rooms, recently renovated with good quality fixtures and furnishings. Unit has 1 1/2 baths including its own laundry, kitchen has everything you would need. Owner is nearby and can advise if you are not familiar with the area. Would definitely look to stay here again next time visiting Maine.
We just returned from our two week stay in Camden in this great apartment. This is the second year we have rented this apartment and we plan to come back again next year. The apartment is spacious, impeccably clean, comfortably furnished and exactly as seen in the photos. The kitchen is fully equipped with glasses, plates and every utensil you need. Having a dishwasher and washer and dryer and A/C are a real bonus. The front porch and back patio are great for relaxing or barbequing. While there are two other apartments in the house, it is very quiet. And the other renters have been very friendly. The location is ideal for all activities in Camden...close to the food market, drug store, wine merchant, the harbor, shops, and of course Reny's. The owner is delightful and is right in town if you need anything. She also provides a great guide of activities and restaurants from the "local's" perspective. Camden is a lovely town and this apartment is a real find.
A very roomy 1-bedroom apartment on two levels. Clean and updated. There's a sofa bed in the living room for an extra person or two. We had a great stay here - the location was ideal. I was traveling with my husband and 87 year old father so we wanted to be close to downtown Camden. We had enough room for everyone and it was great to have 1 1/2 baths.
Fortunately my father can still do stairs. You must climb up a flight of stairs to the second floor. Then to go to the full bath, living room and bedroom, climb up another flight of stairs.
We were there in October, so I'm not sure how hot it would get up there in the summer.
We had a wonderful stay, a friendly and helpful host, and I would stay there again.
The only things I found it lacked: a full-length mirror, an additional mid-weight blanket (there were lightweight blankets on the beds and down comforters in the closet), a better mattress on the sofa bed - something without hard springs!), have some paper and pens available, and a bigger dresser with drawers in the bedroom would have been helpful!
What a great find...I was traveling in the area with my boyfriend and his parents and we decided to opt for this apartment over the B&Bs and inns in Camden. This apartment was perfect - it has a great amount of space (two floors, full bath and half bath) and was modern, bright, and very comfortable. The location cannot be beat. Downtown Camden is literally a three minute walk from the front steps. There is a drug store, coffee shop and yummy asian restaurant right across the street (what more could you need?). The owner Susan was very nice and easy to communicate with...she made us feel at home. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone coming to the area!
Camden Maine sits on one of the most beautiful harbors in the Midcoast region, if not all of Maine. The town offers world class restaurants, outdoor recreation, arts, water and mountain sports, antiquing and picturesque surroundings year round. In-town skiing, toboggan races, ice-skating in winter and boating, kayaking, mountain hikes, a national park and fresh lobsters the rest of the year. The Maine Photographic/Media Workshops are within two miles of the center of town. The region offers a variety of events year round that bring visitors from around the world.
