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

Another great stay at Wicker Cottage

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.

My husband and I spent two weeks at the. Wicker Cottage. My husband was attending a local wood working class and I explored the Camden area. The home was WONDERFUL. Very nicely stocked for cooking. Perfectly located close to town. The home was comfortable, clean and beautiful. We highly recommend it. A must is to walk to the end of the street and hike up the mountain.

Cute Camden Cottage

We really enjoyed our visit at the Wicker Cottage and would return and recommend it to friends. We traveled with our 3 year old and the location was perfect for early morning walks into town (it's so close!) for coffee and breakfast. It's a great base for trips to Rockport, Rockland, and further afield. We loved being so close to Megunticook Lake too. The cottage is well appointed and well stocked. Beds were super comfortable. The only caveat I'd mention is that the stairs leading to the bedrooms upstairs are steep; may not be suitable for those with mobility issues. Our daughter handled them fine holding on to the banister.

Perfect home for Maine vacation

This "cottage" is a beautiful, well cared for home that the owners obviously really love and must enjoy themselves, when not rented. Not only is the location convenient of downtown Camden, it's a good central spot to visit Bar Harbor in the north and quaint towns to the south like Bath and Wiscasset. The kitchen in this house is fully stocked with dishes and lots of convenient stuff like herbs and spices, we bought paper towels and small baggies and left what was left over, others have done the same because it there was plenty of toilet paper, trash bags and other necessities. There is a stereo in the family room with a whole binder full of CD's ranging from REM to Dinah Washington. There was also a LARGE binder full of DVDs from the past few years, tons of variety. The beds were comfy, there were plenty of towels. The stair case was a little bit narrow and steep which had us concerned at first because my father is older and uses a cane but there was a sturdy railing and he had no problems going up and down. I have no complaints. Michelle was a PLEASURE to deal with in terms of booking, I was a little bit nervous about renting directly from an owner but now I will definitely do it again. If we ever get to Maine again, I would definitely considering renting this house again. LOVE LOVE LOVE :)
