Camden House Rental Photos and Description

3 B/r, 2 1/2 Bath, With Mountain & Water Views From All Windows

A new kitchen opens to the dinning area with windows and sliders filling the space with light and ocean air. Just one step down is a large bluestone patio with fieldstone sitting wall and a gas grill.

This overlooks the perfect yard for croquet or catch. From the patio you can walk up to the 2nd floor deck. This runs the length of the house giving 2 of the 3 bedrooms egress to the upper seating area where in the sun or under an awning you can spend the day. Don't forget your binoculars.

The third floor has a bonus room where the views open up even further to the mountains and bay. With a fridge and 1/2 bath up there you may never come down.

Cable TV and wireless are included so you can still be connected. You can end the day with a movie in our large viewing room and stroll the 300 feet to the 100 foot long dock where you can enjoy a starry night.

THE IDEAL RENTAL HOUSE IN PICTURE PERFECT MAINE

  • 5 of 5
My family of four (with two kids) plus my parents, rented this very large home over the July 4th weekend. We chose Camden for its central location on the coast, in order to allow us to take day trips throughout the state.

The home was ideal for two families. We had lots of space, and lots of privacy. In fact, the home seemed to go on an on. Lots of rooms and spaces. We took advantage of the nicely appointed kitchen and the outdoor grill area to make home cooked lobster feasts a couple of nights.

The home was clean and the upstairs bedroom and bathroom areas were very comfortable. We met the homeowners when we called to ask if there was a hair dryer in the home. There was not. But, the homeowners, who happened to be in town, quickly rushed over to bring us one. They were always accessible to answer our questions, as well. Great hosts!

My kids loved running around and playing croquet in the backyard. We could watch them from the patio, or the big bay window off the kitchen. As a bonus, there were balconies off two of the bedrooms. And, up on the third floor, there was another balcony with the best view of the water over the adjacent building. My kids loved reading in the third floor room.

The home is not too fancy, so that you'd worry about kids breaking something. The owners mentioned wanting to get some new furniture and I think that would be a perfect update to really bring the home up to first class status.

I found the location of the home to be perfect. It was within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, parks, the harbor … but it was down a quiet street. We had no problem parking two vehicles in the circle driveway, but there was street parking available if you need more. The area felt safe.

Thank you for opening your home to us. We had a wonderful trip.

Owner's Response: Rosalyn,
We are truly happy when folks enjoy the home as much as you all did. We have been bringing the house up to that first class level and each year we upgrade a few more pieces. It is a great reason to keep coming back. There will be a new croquet set in the yard from LL Bean when you return! Thanks for being such great guests.

A PERFECT MAINE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for 5 weeks as my husband had an engagement in the area. We rented this house because the pictures showed a third floor room and balcony that I could imagine spending my days. It was as wonderful as the pictures and I did spend a fair amount of time in that room.
I had also imagined Maine as cold and rainy in September, but instead we had many sunny and warm days. An added bonus.

The rest of the house was also comfortable. We spent a lot of hours in the kitchen and sitting area, I did crafts at the large dining room table and there was a fireplace for the chilly nights. The kitchen is newly remodeled and has all the needed equipment and dishes. The entire house is large enough for two related families with a number of levels and nooks to sit and read. The Master bedroom and balcony also seem to be part of the remodel and were very generous in size and had the king size bed we were looking for. The other bedrooms looked and felt more like "old Maine" as they were in the part of the house not completely remodeled, Our visitors did enjoy the rooms and their "quaintness". The bathrooms were nicely done and clean and fresh. The outside grill which I used many nights and the cable and internet connections all worked well. The TV and game room are also in a part of the house not completely remodeled. We did not spend much time in those rooms, but as the house was much bigger than our needs we had plenty of other options.

Our time in Maine was like a dream for many reasons, but this house definitely contributed to the dream. If we go back to Maine we would gladly return to this house,

The house was within a comfortable walking distance to town and for the most part, I parked the car and walked to all the things I needed from groceries to drug store to library and of course shops and restaurants. Camden is a small town that has all the things a visitor wants and needs from scenery and boating options to hiking and biking and all with wonderful views.

The owner was very easy to work with and was able to accommodate some schedule changes that we had prior to arriving and during our stay, Any concerns we voiced, were immediately addressed.

PERFECT HOUSE - PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We couldn’t have picked a better place to stay! Of all the towns we visited up and down the coast, Camden was by far the best. It has the cutest shops, best restaurants and the location is perfect for making day trips to other towns.

The house is within walking distance to everything. It is well stocked, very clean and more than spacious. The owners are easy to work with – everything went as planned.

Highly recommended!

SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE HOUSE AND GOOD LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely and very spacious house that makes you feel at home the minute you walk in. This was the perfect location for our annual college reunion get-away. The recently renovated kitchen was great for cooking a meal together, the decks were spectacular for sipping wine and star gazing at night. We had breakfast on the lower level deck and the outdoor winding staircase worked well for our annual photos! There is plenty of living space, bedrooms and bathrooms for 6 or more guests.

I wish the view had been better as there is a large parking lot behind the house, but focus to the left and you'll see the water and many ships. We loved the location - easy walk to town and around the harbor, but on a quiet street. Camden is quaint and beautiful and definitely worth visiting.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. The pictures posted show realistic perspectives of the view and the parking lot out back. An important part of the renovations we did was to build decks up on the 2nd and 3rd floors that provide the dramatic views out to Penobscot Bay and the entrance to Camden Harbor. I am glad you enjoyed our home so much.

A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE PERFECT FOR OUR TWO FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 days this summer in this beautiful in Camden and it was perfect. We were two families with 5 kids and everybody was comfortably installed. The house was clean and has everything you need to spend a great time : a lot of space inside and a big front lawn for the kids to play. Great location too, walking distance to the lovely downtown Camden. Thank you Jim for renting us this place, it was exactly what we needed!

GREATLY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5
This wonderfully renovated home was a perfect home base for our trip to Maine. The owners were a delight to work with and made our first VRBO rental a great experience. We walked to town, hiked the trails of Mt. Battie State Park, swam at Barrett's Cove, saile on the bay, and truly enjoyed our time. The house was perfect for two couples and four kids.
A couple of extra Kids or three couple with no kids would work OK as we'll.

Photos don't do this home justice. We thought it was much nicer in person than we were expecting from the photos. We plan to stay her again as it was a perfect spot for us!

Camden is located in the mid-coast of Maine where the mountains meet the sea. This village offers every amenity you would want on vacation. From fine dinning to small pubs by the harbor. Driving or hiking to the top of Mt Battie. Dozens of shops for crafts to snacks line the streets around a harbor where historic sailing schooners still ply the waters. A library and parks open up the head of the harbor with grand views. Tour of the expansive harbor by kayak, schooner, or lobster boat. Swim or fish in the nearby lake or golf at some of the best spots on the east coast. Or you can grab a coffee and sit on a harbor bench and watch the boats and people come and go.
