CHARMING COTTAGE JUST A STROLL TO BEAUTIFUL CAMDEN HARBOR

Camden House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Situated on a quiet, residential street this adorably updated, circa 1900 farmhouse is just a FIVE MINUTE WALK TO DOWNTOWN CAMDEN and its picturesque harbor. Bright and cheery, the two bedroom home offers comfortable furnishings and everything you need in your 'home-away-from-home' including a deck and private brick patio for outdoor dining and relaxing. The interior features restored wide plank pine floors upstairs and an ANTIQUE CLAW TUB, as well as a shower, in the second floor bathroom. NEW SIMMONS BEAUTY REST PLUSH MATTRESS SET in Master Bedroom (summer 2010)! Downstairs there is a well stocked full kitchen with NEW CORIAN countertops, separate sunny eating area seating six, a spacious family room and separate living/TV room with 32' FLAT SCREEN TV which can be closed off via french doors from the rest of the house.

Camden is a lovely coastal town offering something for everyone. Enjoy views of MOUNT BATTIE from the front stoop or take a 30 minute moderate hike to the summit from the TRAIL HEAD at the AT THE TOP OF THE STREET. Those less adventuresome can drive to the top via the Mount Battie State Park entrance. Either way the reward is a marvelous view of the harbor, bay, and outlying islands. Bald Rock Trail in Camden Hills State Park was listed as one of the world's most scenic walks (Departures.com, Adam H Graham, Mar/Apr 2012)

If you would rather not cook your own lobsters in our convenient outdoor propane lobster and shellfish pot, take a walk to the wharf for a lobster feast at Bayview Lobster, Inc., a cup of delicious New England chowder at Cappy's or venture where the locals hang out at Cuzzy's and have a Maine micro-brew beer. You may also want to reserve a spot on one of the various wooden sailing schooners for a tour of Penobscot Bay or learn to kayak with Maine Sports Kayak Tours. Town events include the Camden Food and Wine Festival in June, Country Roads Artist & Artisans Tour in September, and Christmas By the Sea early December. Camden also offers a wide variety of restaurants, gourmet food and wine purveyors and unique shops where you can find upscale clothing, local pottery/art, antiques, and more.

WONDERFULLY LOCATED IN MIDCOAST MAINE, Camden is a great stepping stone from which to discover the pleasures of the seacoast as well as an array of exciting day trips to the north and south. Rivers and lakes abound for fishing and nearby towns and cities provide history and cultural amenities. You may want to experience the ANNUAL MAINE LOBSTER FESTIVAL IN ROCKLAND every August(20 minute drive), Arts in the Park in Belfast (18 mi.), and the Union State Fair and Maine Wild Blueberry Festival in Union (13 mi.). This is a real Maine agricultural fair and one of the oldest fairs in Maine.

My husband, Keith, grew up on the coast of Maine, therefore it was inevitable we would eventually own a house in Maine--although we live and work in Florida! We love our time in Camden and believe anyone who visits will also fall in love with the area. If you love nature, hiking, kayaking, sailing--or just enjoying the beautiful northeast climate and scenery--we urge you to spend some time in Camden and surrounding midcoast Maine! -Michelle & Keith

A wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough good things about Wicker Cottage. Clean, comfortable and as mentioned in other reviews, a very well stocked kitchen. The location can't be beat-very short walk into town and the harbor but equally short walk to the Mt. Battie trailhead. Next time we are in Camden, this is our place.

Fantastic Property - Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5
Wicker Cottage met and exceeded our already high expectations. From the minute we walked through the door on arrival we were hugely impressed by this property. It has been lovingly assembled and beautifully cared for and really does merit the over-used description of "home from home". Everything about Wicker Cottage fits the bill as an ideal vacation venue. It is expertly furnished, decorated and equipped and is located just a short walk from the main street and the many fine restaurants of Camden. We found Michelle to be a very attentive, helpful and responsive owner and Wicker Cottage would be our first choice for a return visit to the area.

Just returned from a wonderful week in Camden, Maine all made more possible by our decision to rent the Wicker Cottage. We have VRBOed in many locations and this was one of the best. Great location on an incredibly quiet street while still a few blocks to Camden dining, shopping and harbor. Private parking, great hikes that one can both walk to or easy drive. House is perfectly appointed both in kitchen, bathrooms and throughout. Literally everything one needs to cook (except the lobsters). Highly recommend the Wicker Cottage for a small family or two couples. We had friends visit as well and it was cozy yet still private. Total thumbs up!

We enjoyed our first stay here and look forward to returning again! The Wicker Cottage had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We also LOVED how close it was to town. Michelle was wonderful to communicate with from start to finish! Thank you and looking forward to next time!

Wonderful stay at Wicker Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I loved my stay at Wicker Cottage and want to come back every year! The house is well appointed with everything I needed, including comfortable beds and furniture, and was a happy, sunny, in a perfect location. Michelle was very easy to work with and was very responsive to me throughout the process.

Another great stay at Wicker Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We first visited Maine in October of 2010 and stayed here. We enjoyed it so much, that when we decided to come back this fall, we planned our stay so that we could stay here again. The cottage is very convenient to many locations, and is an easy walk of maybe two blocks to town. The house has all of the comforts of home, and is a cozy destination after a day of hiking or shopping. I especially love the claw foot bath tub. This VRBO owner is very easy to communicate with, which makes for an all around pleasant stay.
