PORCUPINE COTTAGE. PRIVATE LAKEFRONT CLOSE TO CAMDEN

Camden Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom lake view, cathederal ceilings, 5 skylights, very private.

Quiet & private cottage overlooking Hobbs pond, just minutes from Camden, the Jewel of Midcoast Maine, on the Penobscot Bay. Our home is open and airy with five skylights, tall cathedral ceilings, a first floor master bedroom overlooking the water, and a spacious second floor sleeping loft. We are DSL WIFI. The house is just a few easy steps to your own, private, floating dock, where you can enjoy our two kayaks and small rowing/sailing boat while exploring the pristine waters and natural scenic beauty that is Hobbs Pond. Have your morning tea or coffee on one of our three decks facing the water and watch the sunrise fill the day. Explore the small coastal towns of Belfast, Rockport, Rockland, Port Clyde, an artist colony, and Lincolnville Beach, that dot the magnificent rugged shorelines of the scenic Maine coast and peninsulas. In Owls Head visit the world famous transportation museum featuring restored vintage automobiles and airplanes with each week-end featuring a special viewing events and themes. In Rockland visit the Farnsworth Museum, home to three generations of Wyeth artists as well as ongoing exhibitions. Lincolnville, just up the road, has a state of the art Cellardoor Winery with picturesque vineyards, tasting room, and retail store. In Hope, just a mile down the hill there’s an authentic working blacksmith shop, a jewelry gallery, the Hope General Store where you can get food supplies, wine and lunches to go. And while you are there, visit the Hope Elephants, Rosie and Opal, two retired circus elephants enjoying their retirement years and receiving visitors from around the world. While in Camden, visit Camden Hills State Park. Hike the 22 miles of trails or simply drive up to see Mt. Battie and the panoramic views of Penobscot Bay and Mcgunticook lake. Take a day sail on a Windjammer. All this is just a few short miles from your door steps. (Continue in details)

And, at the end of the day, return to Porcupine Cottage, your private place to relax, sit on the deck while the gas grill does it’s work and wait for the call of the loons to punctuate the end of a perfect day. Look around at nature at it’s best: the pond, the approaching dusk, the quiet that nature had in mind, and consider the expectation of what tomorrow may have in store. Our home is your home! Our state is yours! Join us now, for the summer, or come in the fall when the temperatures are mild, the color season is spectacular. We are a three season home and hope that you will join us whenever you can.

Love those loons

You can see the pond from the deck. Lovely place to read a book. Kayaking was fun, too (2 come with the cottage). From the deck we watched a baby loon with its parents that hung out close by every day - and learned something about loons.

Pros: Cottage in beautiful condition. Nice screened in porch for the evening. Only had to call the manager once with a question, and he answered the phone right away. Close to Camden/Lincolnville/Rockland area. Little general store (2-3 miles away) makes nice sandwiches. There were many trees, so cottage was always cool (didn't have to use the provided box fans). And surprisingly few bugs outside. There's a small DVD collection and lots of books (mostly mysteries).

Cons: No internet and poor cell service - of course this might be a Pro for some people. There is free internet at the Camden public library.
Driveway is steep - if you don't have 4WD or AWD, you have to park at the the top of the driveway and walk about 50 feet to the cottage.

What did we learn about loons? Baby loons ride piggy-back on their parents when small. Pretty cool.
