Unparalleled and unobstructed views of both the inner and outer harbor in beautiful Camden, Maine. Perched on the ledges directly on the harbor, 'The Shop' is the perfect location to enjoy everything that a vacation on the water provides. Sit on the deck and enjoy the active harbor views with constant activity directly in front of you. Easy walking distance to downtown Camden, with all it's restaurants and quaint shops. Also easy walking to the town beach. The views from inside and from on the deck can not be compared with any others in Camden. As one previous guest has stated 'this is the most beautiful spot in the world.' Sorry, but pets and smoking are not allowed in 'The Shop'.
This property has been in our family since the 1940's. For many years it served as the workshop for my grandfather who was a lobsterman. In 1990 my parents rebuilt 'the shop' and made it 3 floors of living space to be used as a summer rental. My mother still lives in the house directly across the street.

This little cottage is remarkable. Comfortable and cozy with incredible views. The deck is large and has a wonderful awning - a great place to relax and watch the most amazing boats go by. The inside is very clean and tidy and there wasn't anything - from lobster plates to coffee filters or any cooking utensil you can think of that wasn't there!
"The Shop" is very close (only a couple of blocks) from the center of Camden and you can walk anywhere. The restaurants in town are very good and so is the shopping.
My husband and I have stayed at "The Shop" for two years and will be back again next year to enjoy three blissful weeks. The owners are great people and they provide easy access and very good service. We highly recommend this rental to anyone who is going to Camden, Maine.
Gorgeous scenery, friendly people,
Fine dining, and great shopping.
Or just stay indoors and watch yachts from all over the world come and go while catching up on some reading. Terrific!
If you are thinking about renting this property do not hesitate! It was spotless, and everything was there that we needed and more. The owners were great!
Exceptionally clean, well managed vacation rental. Very convenient to town. Beautiful views of the harbor. Accurately described in the listing. Had a wonderful time and hope to return.
I and my family and friends have been visiting "The Shop" on Camden Harbor whenever possible for at least 15 or so years. Besides the fantastic view and workings of the harbor the cottage itself is one of the most welcoming vacation accommodations I have been in----extremely clean and well maintained and supplied with all of the comforts of home and gadgets you could possibly need during the length of your stay. It is within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown Camden. My perfect place for a week or more in Maine.

We have been coming to Camden for 10 years and "The Shop" is the best place we have stayed. It is perfectly located near the picturesque downtown area, library, Laite Beach and all the likes of Camden. We walked wherever we needed to go because we were so close. All the amenities we needed were provided with a well stocked kitchen. The views from the deck are tremendous. Our children enjoyed watching the ducks and the seal who frequents the bay. The owners are very sweet and thoughtful. We had such a great time and we are returning in July.
