CAMDEN-BELFAST AREA EXCLUSIVE MAGNIFICENT MAINE LAKE HOUSE AND CABINS

Camden Estate Rental Photos and Description

Hidden Lake, Farmstead, 7 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 1-16) Organic farm

The hand painted sign saying Well Fed Farm will cue you to the turn onto Christina's Way. You will then see the sweet garden

shed and greenhouse, the fenced in gardens, apple tree and chickens (yes the children or you are welcome to come and pick vegetables for dinner!) As you drive slowly down the winding half mile path that will enfold and welcome you, we imagine you will anticipate the house and environs you have chosen for your vacation, reunion,celebration, wedding or romantic week for two.

Built in 2006 our luxurious lakeside camp consists of one adirondack style cedar shingle home and two cozy cabins. Privacy for all. You will enter the main house onto an 1,200sq/ft screened in porch with an outdoor stone fire place, pingpong, handcrafted pine harvest table, and french doors to access every room. The great room in the center of the house hosts a magnificent indoor stone fireplace, multiple couches and handcrafted game table. For the chef in you the large chef’s kitchen fully appointed with huge Wolf oven, original Monson slate farm sink will bring smiles as you and your family or friends create meals overlooking the lake and listening to the loons. Each bedroom has it’s own private bath. Each bedroom and cabin has a private screened porch with lake views. The furniture throughout the house was handmade by local carpenters and artisans.

The Love Shack and Loft House each consist of their own screened in porch, propane fireplace, kitchenette, sitting area, full bath and views of the lake. In addition to the master bedroom in each the Love Shack has a bunk room and the Loft house has a second floor bedroom.

The property sits on 100 private wooded acres and 3,000 ft of water frontage, ripe for exploring. The grounds boast hidden hammocks to swing on and sway in the waterfront breezes and read. There is a large outdoor stone fire grill for barbecues and picnic tables. The waterfront has a large dock, lounge chairs, 4 kayaks and a canoe. Perfect for swimming, boating, or fishing!

You can walk or run the 6 mile loop in the morning before jumping into the water.

The property is completely solar powered and we ask renters to be mindful of conservation.

It can comfortably sleep 14 (perfect for a family reunion) while promising everyone privacy and yet is also cozy enough for an individual couple’s retreat.

If you ever want to leave the camp you can be in Camden or Belfast in under 15 minutes and enjoy the natural beauty of the Maine Coast or the wonderful shops and restaurants along Route 1.

We built this camp as our family’s sanctuary, but we do like to share it on a limited basis with people who would also respect and appreciate it.

I am a chef and designer. I have two children. I tend to my farm, and am dedicated to issues of Global Security, the environment and protection of children. My friends and family are the world to me.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2006

There is a magical story behind my acquisition of the land the house is built on. Let's just say that childhood dreams come true if you never let the dream go.

The lake has never had a motor boat on it, it's pristine and so tranquil and quiet, swimming from end to end, kayaking at sunrise or sunset, fishing the bass, it is unusual because it's so private and secluded, it feels like time stands still.

Our Well-Fed Farm Wedding Was Beyond Perfect

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We had our wedding at Well-Fed Farm in October of 2013. We stayed there for 5 days with our friends and family, including our pup. The home, setting and hospitality of the owner and her helpers could not have been more perfect -- everything so far exceeded our highest expectations. The main home and cabins are beautiful - so well appointed, creatively and artistically furnished and decorated, and comfortable. And such wonderful design and architecture. The best of casual elegance and comfort. Multiple fire places, comfy couches, a 1200 sq. foot porch, art abounding, magnificent views from inside the house, a chef's kitchen, creative and artistic furnishing that I wanted to bring home... you will never want to leave the house.

Once you do step outside, you will never want to leave the property. The setting is nature in its full glory. 100+ acres of forest on a pristine lake. Softly rolling hills. Beautiful black rocks contrasting with emerald green grass. Surrounded by a thick forest. The beauty and smell of fall leaves. A small working farm of flowers and vegetables, that the kind owner made available to us for our bouquets and our banquet. The owner, Christina, even ordered up a full moon rise over the lake for the last night of our stay. Inland and close enough to coastal Maine to enjoy the best of both worlds. (and do investigate the location -- really close to Belfast, Camden and lots of great towns)

And we are saving the best for last. The owner herself - Christina - who so lovingly and caringly created her home and farm which she shares; so lovingly and skillfully prepared our wedding feast; so generously shared her knowledge and contacts to help us plan for our wedding; and so graciously shopped for us and gave us all kinds of support and advice prior to our arrival and during our stay. Both Christina and her friend and helper, Zona, helped us prior to and during our stay and wedding - they are both wonderful, kind and generous people who made our wedding and trip so very special. And Christina's dogs were an added bonus; they were an important part of our stay (she brought them over at our invitation), and we loved them too.

If there were more than 5, stars, we would give them to what must be the best place to stay in Maine.

Thank you, Christina, for sharing so much with us and making this one of the most special times of our lives.

Shellye and Tina (and Elvis too)

Owner's Response: Dear Tina and Shellye,
I am far away finishing up a long overdue vacation, and rarely touching email..but your review came up on my screen and it provoked me to break protocol and write this response. Your writing is beautiful, poetic and my heart is filled with so much joy from your wedding, your warmth in inviting Zona and I to the ceremony and the loving environment filled with small touches that you created for all your guests. It was a joy and an honor to be involved in your joyful days. I did indeed give you both my heart and it is so wonderful to be acknowledged in this way, although it was unnecessary...your gifts were enough and too much :) I have tears in my eyes and I know that Zona will to, she still talks about all of you..especially under the ice storms we are suffering...the warm memories are good to keep warm. Much love, Christina and Zona

Most Amazing Vacation Ever

  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Christina,

Your home and the experience of being at Well Fed Farm was amazing. I was truly able to relax and take deep breathes and enjoy. I loved picking veggies in the garden, sitting on the dock, lounging in a hammock and playing games in front of the fire with everyone! We all had time to wander in nature and I took colorful leaves home for my children to make into art. I feel as if I went to visit family and am very honored to have been in your home. I left with many tales and adventures to share with my loved ones here in Texas. It was lovely.

Thank you from my heart.

Sincerely,
Wendy

Owner's Response: Dear Wendy,
It was a highlight for us to share the gardens with you, and watch you all joyfully dig up the potatoes and pick the kale and flowers for your bouquets! We love sharing our bounty with all of you, and cannot thank you enough for this sweet review! Warmly, Christina

Spectacular Sept wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
My sister Sara was married on this property on Sept 14. The wedding was held outdoors on a spectacular day and we enjoyed swimming and kayaking on the lake. We took many pictures starting at dawn until late into the night. We ate, we toasted to the happy couple and danced to lively fiddle music. In the morning we feasted on a full breakfast and sat a few extra minutes because nobody wanted to leave! We packed hastily and started the laundry but in the rush to get out of the way of the housecleaning crew, I left my bright green trench coat in the closet of the end guest room. When I contacted the owner she responded immediately and brought the coat to a shipping company in Camden.
I am so happy that my coat is on it's way home. I highly recommend this property if you are planning a family event. The buildings are beautifully maintained, the beds are so comfortable, and when it gets chilly the rooms stay warm as toast without turning the heat on!
Owner's Response: It was such a joy hosting your sisters wedding here! When I walked in the house looked untouched! You were the perfect guests...I loved the coat you left behind...it was very hard letting it go! :) Thank you so much for the very kind review, it meant the world to me/us to hear back from you - and we love the energy that is left in our home after joyous occasions...the happiness gets into the walls and builds from each special week spent here. Thank you again, let me know if you received your coat! Warmly, Christina and staff

The Fabulous Week We'll Always Treasure

The Fabulous Week We'll Always Treasure
  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
My wife and I chose Christina's lake house and cabins to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in August, 2012, with our children, grandchildren and some good friends. Everyone was totally in awe of the place and the experience. We spent our days on the lake in the canoe and kayaks and my 13' sailboat and basically had the lake to ourselves. My son, a gourmet cook, was in heaven in the dream chef's kitchen and we all enjoyed having all of our meals together at the wonderful wooden table on the screened-in porch. We spent the evenings having ping pong tournaments and card games at the large table. There is a roadside stand several miles away where you can get fresh vegetables and pastries fresh made daily. We had a total of 11 mixed fruit or blueberry pies during the week and blueberry pancakes almost every morning for breakfast. Christina is a wonderful, charming person to rent from and she goes out of her way to try to supply anything that could make your stay more enjoyable.. We took some day trips to Camden and Acadia, but almost regretted not spending all of our time on the grounds and the lake. No one wanted to leave this heavenly lodge and lake and everyone dreams of returning someday. Christina, we love you and thank you for creating and sharing this wonderful spot.
Owner's Response: I am speechless. I loved all of you and will never ever forget your kind words that one morning while I was up at the farm...seeing how content you were...it made me so happy...I speak about you often and with such fondness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this review.

My Favorite Week of the Year

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 14, 2011
  • Stayed: Feb 2010
My wife, three boys and I have visited this property for the past two years, and we just booked another week for the kid’s upcoming winter break. It’s my favorite week of the year.

The Cabin is great, has every amenity one could want, and is very much a perfect luxurious, private, lakeside getaway. Bring food & wine, and the smiles do follow.

The area offers infinite choices for fun activities – the kids are outside all day. The Camden SnowBowl has great family skiing (25mins away), and the fireplace in the cabin is a great gathering place for evening wind-down. Our kids love exploring the lake, which has decent ice fishing from what I hear (We’ll see this year!).

I recommend this property as the perfect family get-away spot … Now I just need to convince my wife that we should also spend a week here each summer.
