An Exquisite arts and crafts designer built cottage, just up from Camden Maine's famed Laite Beach. Camden rests at the foothills of Mount Battie and is one of the most beautiful harbors in Maine. The windjammers set sail several times a day and it is a buzz of activity all summer long, filled with great shopping experiences and wonderful restaurants at every turn. The Camden Opera House has several fantastic events with live entertainment from Rock and Roll to Classical Music and live Theatre.
'Stone's Throw' is the guesthouse to Boulder Cottage which is a fabulous pink turn of the century victorian, ergo the name Stone's Throw.
It's also just a stone's throw to town!
The cottage location was convenient, a short walk to a public park and beach, and close to everything in Camden. Our host, Joshua, met us upon arrival and was very friendly with a great sense of humor. The 1-bedroom apartment was very clean and contemporary, with easy parking close to the entrance, and the washer and dryer were especially helpful. The kitchen had all modern appliances, the marble bathroom was large, and there were more then enough closets for storage. We also enjoyed using the fireplace and appreciated the thought that went into the artwork and décor. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 4-day Autumn visit to Camden and were glad to have such a comfortable place to call home during our stay.

Stone's Throw in Camden was more than we imagined. The cottage had everything you could ever need. We stayed for two weeks and felt at home. The kitchen is very well furnished if you decide to cook (but who would want to with all of the wonderful restaurants nearby). The washer and dryer were very well used. We walked to town everyday and traveled by car to outlying areas. There is so much to see in the Camden area. We will be back.
We stayed at the Stone’s Throw Cottage for four days while celebrating our anniversary. It’s perfect for a romantic getaway. The natural and architectural beauty of the property cannot be measured. Stone’s Throw is the perfect blend of simplicity and elegance. While the photos and the description are accurate, what you find once you get there is that there’s so much more to the property. The cottage is nestled into the edge of the woods which provides a sense of privacy for guests in the cottage. The soft fragrant smells of the flowers and spruce trees surrounding the cottage will have your senses reeling. In the evenings, we opened the windows to let the cool air in; and even though it was dark outside and the living room was gently lit (lights are on dimmers, by the way!) our privacy was protected by the forest. It felt like home for us. The interior of the cottage is immaculate and beautifully decorated, right down to the linens. Josh is a wonderful host; and as it turns out he’s a handy guy to have around when you’re in a pinch. While we were talking with Josh outside the cottage, I discovered that we were late for a sailing charter. Josh graciously insisted that we jump into his truck and he’d “get us to the church on time”… and he did! We were at the dock in only a couple of minutes. Thanks again, Josh!
If you’re looking for something cozy and private, yet close enough to walk to town, then this is the place to stay. From the cottage, you can walk to the ocean in less than 5 minutes…. You’ll be in the heart of Camden in 10. Parking in town can sometimes be a little difficult. There are a lot of folks who drive in to Camden for the day to see the sights, so having everything you need within walking distance from the cottage is a blessing. A grocery store and a pharmacy in town will have everything you need to provision your pantry during your stay, don’t worry. Restaurants, shops, sailing… everything’s just a “Stone’s Throw” away! (you see what I did there?) If you’re into hiking, bring your gear. Camden Hills State Park is about 2.5 miles north from the cottage and has 30 miles of hiking trails through some of the most beautiful wilderness you’ll ever see.
Not only do we recommend staying at Stone’s Throw, I can assure you… we’ll be back (hopefully) soon!

Having chosen several accommodations on our autumn journey through New England we both agree this was our very favorite. Josh was a fabulous host providing information about great restaurants and sights as well as giving us valuable insider tips about the area. This property has clearly been lovingly renovated with exquisite attention to detail, beautiful artwork, and impeccable design. From the filtered sunlight poring into the spacious open concept living/kitchen area to the quiet bedroom and elegantly designed bathroom/laundry area - the level of comfort and serenity was perfect! The property was perfectly maintained with attention to every detail. We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family and hope one day to return for a longer stay. Thank you to Josh!
My husband and I went on vacation to New Hampshire and Maine, we wanted to have a leisurely drive up to New England and stop at antique shops along the way. We spent four nights at the Stone's Throw Cottage and it couldn't have been any nicer! The owner is extremely helpful with recommendations for dining and showing you the features at the cottage when you arrive. We felt like old friends coming for a visit to his property. The cottage is relaxing with high end appliances and comfortable furnishings. We enjoyed the sights around town, climbed Mt. Battie, ate at Long Grain, Primo and had lobster at the Lobster Pound in Lincolnville. We antiqued in Rockland, Lincolnville and Rockport which were all within a short drive. Camden is beautiful with a quant town and harbor, stay at the cottage and enjoy yourselves. Make reservations for Primo, it was a not to miss restaurant and Long Grain is the best Thai I've ever eaten, I only wish it wasn't an 8 hour drive away. We also ate lobster rolls at the Marriner in town and they were beyond delicious, like a burger on a toasted bun but huge chunks of lobster instead. We are looking forward to returning in a few years and will definitely stay at the Stone's Throw again. The pictures don't do this property justice, it is better in person!
