Camden House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 8, pet friendly

Located on Camden's prettiest street, a short walk to town but in a quiet neighborhood. Restored from top to bottom, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath Victorian farmhouse sits on the street that runs along the east side of Camden Harbor. It's a scenic 5 minute walk along the head of the harbor to town, the park, library and amphitheater, shops, restaurants, windjammer sailing and a public beach. One block the other way down the street is the public landing, where you can launch a boat or just admire the view of the outer harbor and Penobscot Bay.

The house is light and spacious, simply furnished with a mix of comfortable antiques and 'shabby chic.'Plenty of space to gather together or have some privacy. Very well suited to multigenerational groups.Securely fenced back yard for your dog Large airy living room with 2 french doors opening to a back porch ideal for reading or conversation. Picnic table and grill for cookouts.Open flow from kitchen to dining room, separate family room/library. Downstairs bedroom with bath. Upstairs master bedroom with en suite bath; soak in the claw foot tub with a view of Mt. Battie. 2 Additional bedrooms, another full bath and a laundry room also upstairs.

Well behaved dogs (with a pet deposit) can enjoy the fenced backyard. Ample off-street parking and a 2 car garage. Relaxed, comfortable in-town Maine coastal summer life at its best-- 'the way life should be.'

perfect vacation home for multi-generation family

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our week at Joanne's lovely home on Sea Street. Yes the house is clean, comfortable, and convenient but it also charming and filled with personality! All the bedrooms and sitting rooms are spacious and the kitchen well maintained and well-fitted. The house has many spaces so that even 6-8 people can find a quiet spot to read and relax. For those with well-behaved dogs, the ample fenced-in backyard is a godsend. Joanne has simply thought of everything to make her home welcoming to others. We are already looking forward to a return visit next summer.

A Warm and Inviting Home

  • 5 of 5

Joanne's house is truly a turnkey home. One immediately feels like a welcome guest rather than a traveler. Beautifully decorated, filled with books and artwork, it's a place we've returned to many times. I believe this was our fifth stay over the years. We love it because we are a group of four, and the location allows you an easy and visually beautiful walk to town, so each of us can go separately or together. Our cars barely leave the driveway! It's also a great kitchen for cooking, as our group loves to open a bottle of wine and cook a lovely dinner. We will continue to return to Sea Street - our favorite vacation!

Most comfortable and ideally located house

  • 5 of 5

The last few years I've rented many houses for family vacations. Most of them are quite nice, but never had one like the Sea Street house. It's perfectly situated near the harbor, 5 minute walk and y are in the center of the town. Yet at the same time it is so quiet, with your own spacious fenced in back yard. The kitchen has everything you will ever need, ranging from spices to tools, to nice utensils and wine glasses. To top it off, Joanne is so knowledgeable about everything. We got recommendations for lobster places, oysters, restaurants, bakeries, and even wines. There is a high chance we would return to Camden and I'd definitely stay here again.

Wonderful, perfect home for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Sea Street home! It has everything you could possibly need and really feels so cozy and comfortable. My husband and I visited with our two children (ages 2 years and 8 months old) as well as my brother (age 30) and my parents. The layout of this home was just perfect for our family. My parents were able to enjoy the first floor bedroom to themselves while all of the "kids" were on the 2nd floor. We also loved the backyard, especially for our toddler. We also used Midcoast Family Rentals for a crib and two buckets of toys, which was wonderful! Thank you, Joanne, for accommodating us last minute! We hope to be able to stay at your home again in the future! Highly recommend this property!!!

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Sea St. house. Immaculate, well-maintained and a kitchen full of lots of gadgets and great appliances. Lovely fenced-in yard for our dogs. Lots of light, and just a short stroll to the harbor and downtown.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We've just finished our 3rd multi-week stay at Joanne's wonderful home. It is like taking a vacation at your favorite Aunt's...assuming that your Aunt had the place meticulously cleaned before your arrival, emptied all of the closets and drawers so that you've got more than enough room to store your "stuff", provided a superbly equipped kitchen, and left all the beds made for you! The house is comfortably and eclectically furnished and if the diverse art collection doesn’t delight you, surely the shelves full of wonderful books will. Its comfort level is so superior to most of the “vacation cottages” that we’ve rented over the last 20 years or so that it seems unfair to even put them in the same category as this delightful place.

The house is sponge-like in its ability to comfortably hold varying numbers of guests; over the years we’ve had as many as 3 dogs and 3 couples in residence, and we all had plenty of space to do our own thing or gather together to sit and tell tales. The house is also very comfortable when just the two of us were in residence with 2 dogs underfoot. Somehow we never felt like we were either squeezed in a space to small or rattling around in a space too large … the magic of a house with ‘good bones’.

We all spent hours out in the fenced yard and on the covered porch. No matter the time of day you could always find both sun and shade enough to satisfy everyone, and if you needed to be inside, there was always a cross breeze to remind you that you were in Maine, and on vacation…even if you were working on the computer!

Add to all of this a perfect placement on a quiet street that is just a few minutes’ walk from Harbor Park, the library (where something interesting is always happening), and Main Street. If you like boats, you’ll be fascinated by the ever changing procession of sail boats and power boats that visit or home port in Camden’s harbor. And, of course, all that Mid-Coast Maine has to offer is just out your door. There’s great food, music, art, architecture, crafts and fun just waiting to be discovered. Belfast, Searsport, Rockland, and Rockport are just a few of the places worth exploring if you are able to pull yourself away from Camden’s delights. And while you are out exploring, make sure that you get to at least one of the many Farmer’s Market in the area…you’ll be astonished at what you’ll find there!

I honestly can't imagine a nicer place to spend some time.

Nearest Beach
0.5 Miles
Laite beach, on inner harbor

Camden, 'where the mountains meet the sea,' home of the Maine windjammer fleet and Camden Hills State park. Centrally located to explore the entire mid-coast region. Fine area for 'foodies' with great restaurant selection, farmers' markets and local specialties, including plenty of lobster. Penobscot Bay with ferries to the islands and some of the world's best sailing and sea kayaking. An outdoor paradise with hiking, biking, swimming (both salt water and fresh) and scenic vistas wherever you turn. Unique local shops and galleries. Visit local artists in their studios or view their work in the Farnsworth museum. Friendly relaxed town, abundant natural and cultural resources for the entire family.
