Welcome to Ocean Express House.

Located adjacent to Camden Hills State Park we love to hike the trails. Walk over to the Cellar Door Winery for wine tasting and scenery. The farmhouse is located just about midway between 4 of our favorites activities. Short drives will take you swimming at Barretts Cove in Megunticook Lake, building sand castles at Lincolnville Beach, feeding the ducks and looking a the windjammers in Camden Harbor, or skipping stones and watching the tides at Ducktrap .

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!

A WONDERFUL SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week staying at this spacious and clean house. It worked out perfectly for our family (with two young children), and we loved being situated on a quiet country road, only minutes from all the beaches, lakes, trails, quaint towns etc. we wanted to explore. It was nice to be able to put the kids to bed upstairs, and unwind downstairs chatting, watching movies etc. without worrying we were disturbing them. The owners were extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, both before and during our stay. We hope to be able to come back again soon!

SUNNY AND SPACIOUS FARMHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute staying in this spacious and sunny farmhouse located on a quiet road. It is a clean, well maintained property that serves comfortably 6-8 people without getting into each other's way, and is ideal for families with children. The kids loved the large playroom with the ping pong table and foosball table. There is also an outdoor playground with swings and slides for younger children. We used the gas grill for barbecuing and enjoyed the view into the big flower field. It only takes minutes by car to reach Megunticook Lake, Camden, and beautiful secluded beaches, or start hiking up the hills right behind the house. I will definitely recommend this property to friends and can't wait to go there myself again :)

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We're a family with 2 young kids and we spent a week here in August 2012. The house was clean, comfortable, and very family friendly (a swingset in the yard and a playroom with toys were especially appreciated) though I'd also recommend it for adults without kids. All three bedrooms were nicely kept, the kitchen is in very good shape, and the house is roomy. Location is good -- you need a car, but you're not too far from anything. We are city-dwellers and it was a welcome respite. The owner was particularly helpful in returning to us something we left behind at the house, and was also very responsive overall.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My grandfather built this home and Dad grew up here, therefore, I was very familiar with the layout. I am pleased that the second owners kept it to much of the original and what work was done was intended to match original. It is spacious for a large family, and the 2 full baths make that very comfortable. It is accurately described, and the photo's match what is offered. I had helpful contact with the owner, and all questions were answered in timely fashion. The old farm was immaculately cleaned, and my deposit was refunded very quickly. I would recommend this farm to anyone who likes hiking, and suggest you take interest in seeing the sweetest spot in Maine through what it has to offer. We did it all!!!
