Stayed two weeks! Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to rent this awesome farmhouse for 2 whole weeks and we just loved it. We have 2 young kids and a labrodoodle. Everyone loved this place! The setting is idyllic. The pasture in the backyard is such a beautiful sight in the morning or after sundown and the large windows (with screens) throughout keep the house feeling so fresh and open.
We particularly loved the location of this home. Right across the road was a great hiking trail. Only a short 7 minute trip to the beach and even closer to the beach at Lake Meguntacook. We found a nearby preserve for walking near the lake as well! We went into Camden a lot. It's a quick drive in for meals, groceries, ice cream or visits the harbor or library.
This home is spacious enough to spread out and had nearly everything we needed to cook and prepare foods and enjoy evenings in watching movies or relaxing on the porch. The furniture and beds are comfortable and clean. The wifi is excellent.
The playroom off the kitchen and the rec-room downstairs are both so awesome for kids. In fact, the whole house is quite kid-friendly.
Gosh, I can't think of any reason NOT to stay here. We just loved it!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time renting off the water and I was pleasantly surprised. The game room, indoor swing, outdoor play space and yard kept us plenty busy, and when that failed Lake Megunticook and the trails of the Camden Hills were 5 minutes away. It's a really lovely house, the kitchen is very well apppointed, and the house easily handled our two families with 4 children. A total success!

Great Place for a reunion

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for a family reunion of sorts. We were able to comfortably room 3 couples and 2 kids. Yay!
The property is a short drive and a world away from Camden, close the Lake Megunticook, but also close to Lincolnville and Belfast.
The house is utterly charming, lovingly restored, and beautifully appointed. They have done upgrades to the heating, hot water, and appliances, things that make your stay worry free. Attention has been given to kids (playroom with table tennis, games; there is a playset outside in the beautiful gardens). For the grownups there are two full baths and tons of pots, pans, and utensils, a grill, and a beautiful deck to sit on and watch the sun set. The bedrooms have a number of box fans you can move about on the warm days.
The owners have left careful guides for the area, and also to address the quirks of an old restored home.
For us, it was perfect. You can access hiking trails across the street. It was quiet, spacious and warm. We were easily able to have several family meals in the dining area, but there was enough room for folks to stretch out and read.
I would highly recommend.

A real gem

  • 5 of 5
The house is just a few minutes from downtown Camden, and feels a million miles away. The lot has a nice meadow, sculptures, a play set. There is access to the Camden Hills trail system across the way, but we were beset by deer flies. My sister went out early and had wonderful vistas. I guess deer flies sleep in.
The house is lovingly restored. There is special attention paid to flexible sleeping accommodations, nice appliances, and fun things for kids on rainy days (ping pong table, games, beach toys). The kitchen has a lot of utensils and cooking needs, a wonderful gas stove, so we were able to have a really nice family dinner party during a reunion.
All over the house are nice touches: multiple box fans to keep things cool, beach towels, even binoculars.
The house is very nicely decorated, so comfortable and cozy.
The location allowed us to visit friend on Megunticook, Camden, but easily head up a bit to Belfast, and Lincolnville Beach (though we agreed with the owners - the Ducktrap Beach is much more interesting).
Highly recommended for families.

Close...yet...once removed....

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at the farmhouse.. It was close to so many places we love to visit, but we were able to be a bit removed from the crowds and traffic. The house met all of our needs, table tennis for grown boys, lovely relaxing porches, comfortable beds, two showers/bathrooms and nice big dinner table for all the steamed lobsters we brought home from Young's Lobster Pound in Lincolnville(a short drive, after calling in earlier in the day. They also gave us a Huge garbage bag, that cut in 1/2 & opened & covered the dining table to save it from all the lobster liquids). The house kitchen is like being at home, many pots/pans/dishes/glasses and most importantly, good assortment of knives. I love to cook and found the cooking supplies so much more to my standards than the usual rental. So, cooking wasn't a time consuming struggle, as we made many meals and add ons to go along with the lobsters.

We love Camden, Rockport, Rockland, Bar Harbor(Acadia) and so many other little villages along the coast. We have happily camped/hiked in Camden Hills State park, but decided to try a home and this house was a great choice, as the Park is so close for our hiking needs. We brought 2 kayaks and were able to rent another two others, reasonably, thru the DuckTrap Kayak Shop between Camden and Lincolnville(great people to deal with). Thus, we enjoyed information of the best access to Lake Megunticook, as well a great paddle(getting a bonus of viewing 2 very large loons, fairly close). The "little" grocery in Lincolnville was also a great help(for last minute butter, etc. and were helpful when looking for something to go on top of our plastic bag "table cloth".. the young woman gave us scrap cardboardd & old newspapers). Not classy table cloth, but worked perfectly for us, the lobsters and the table.

Amanda was helpful for any questions we had and the house was clean and well equipped for all our needs. She was in email contact to answer all of my pre-arrival questions, as well as a couple of phone conversations. She was quick to send an email to say that we had left the home clean and our deposit would be in the mail.

So, yes, you should seriously consider renting this home... you will love it.

Fun trip, great place.

  • 5 of 5
Lovely old house with an overall elegant, country look. Furnishings were comfortable and appropriate to the style of the house. A modern, functional kitchen provided all the pots, pans, dishware and utensils necessary to prepare a gourmet meal (including a good variety of spices). The location is near several interesting towns: Camden, Rockport, Rockland, Belfast, most with excellent restaurants, and nice shops. We highly recommend a visit to Shepard's Pie restaurant in Rockport.

For movie lovers, there is a dvd player, but it couldn't play Blu-ray disks. It would be a plus if more of the back pasture was mowed-it was pretty to look at, but not really walkable for humans-our Doberman, Lucy, loved running and hiding from us, though!
