Camden vacation rentals

Create a vacation to remember in Camden

Camden, Maine is everything you could want from a historic village right on the doorstep of mountains, lakes and the ocean. Camden vacation rentals range from lakeside houses for the whole family, through historic properties at its bustling heart, to cozy cottages with views of the harbor. Home to a grand opera house, Camden has a wide variety of evening entertainment with dining options to match. A short way from the town, you’ll find trails for exploring the nearby mountains and lakes, all within easy reach of your vacation home.

A Camden for all seasons

Camden’s harbor fills up with sailing vessels every September at the annual Windjammer festival, but hop aboard a sailboat at any time and float along the scenic Maine coast for a trip to remember. Landlubbers should join a summer walking tour that takes in the town’s historic sights and stories. When the snow falls, hit the slopes at the local Snow Bowl: the only ski resort in the U.S.A. with sea views. If spectating is more your thing, visit in February and check out the daredevils tackling the 400-feet long ice chute in the U.S. Toboggan Championships.

Back to nature in Camden

After waking up refreshed, admire the scenery from a boat trip around the attractive harbor and take a closer look at the working Curtis Island Lighthouse. For a well-deserved treat, the historic Opera House in central Camden has events all year round. Don’t forget your hiking boots, since Camden Hills State Park offers hiking trails for all abilities. Your efforts are rewarded with stunning views over Penobscot Bay from the summits of Mount Battle and Mount Megunticook. For shorter walks, follow the paths through Merryspring Nature Center with its natural landscapes and cultivated gardens.

Camden in sun and snow

Sitting on the Maine coastline between the Camden Hills and the Atlantic Ocean, the village has well-defined seasons with cold, snowy winters and pleasant warm summers. Temperatures are typically below freezing from November through March, but this brings good snow, so wrap up warm while skiing the idyllic slopes or snowshoeing on the trails. Spring (April/May) and fall (September/October) bring warmer days but cold nights, which may make for more comfortable hiking weather. Warm summer temperatures are typically found June through August: ideal for lazy sunny days at your Camden vacation rentals.

Stunning scenery in Camden

The natural harbor is a focal point of Downtown Camden and is part of Penobscot Bay, itself a feature of the Gulf of Maine. Nearby Camden Hills State Park describes itself as being “where the mountains meet the sea,” with pine forest hills rolling directly into the Atlantic Ocean. Camden vacation rentals near Megunticook Lake give visitors the opportunity to see picturesque views of the lake, flanked by the Maiden Cliff of Mount Megunticook on the eastern shore. From mountains to the sea, through the village and the lake, there is always a stunning vista around the corner.
