About Libby Cameron

Our grandparents built the house in 1904. The entire family would come for the summer and my grandmother would stay until November for the duck shooting season, the house has 2 fireplaces but it must have been very cold as it is simply a summer cottage. The 4th generation is now using the house.

Libby Cameron purchased this house in 1904

What makes this house unique

Amazing views, seclusion, cozy, colorful, comfy and spacious house, built on the edge of a ledge within 12' of the water. The sea lulls you to sleep every night.

Our family has multiple dogs-7 labradors so an enclosed area off the kitchen has just been built with a covered area for when we go out for the day so they don't destroy the house.

  • 5 of 5

everything was great . amenities were very good . bedroom size and the baths off each bedroom were great.The large living area and the large round table were superb. It was cold the first day and night but the fireplace took care of that. The camp was well supplied with what you need. The proximity to Boothbay harbor and other places on the island were great. We really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. Thank you to Libby Cameron !

Beautiful Coastal Maine Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful waterfront home this month and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! This home can accommodate a large family or group, with plenty of bedrooms, a large kitchen area for cooking and everyone congregating, plenty of living room space and the deck for outdoor meals is just spectacular! The views from this home just relax you from the moment you arrive! Southport Island is a truly special place and Boothbay Harbor is a charming Maine town with plenty to do and see. Check out the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens -- simply breathtaking and the Boothbay Harbor Land Trust for lots of walking/hiking options. A big thank you!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house last week with my parents and siblings and their families. It was a perfect home to accommodate our large group, not only because of the adequate number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but also because of the exceptionally large amount of "common room" space and the huge round dining room table that allowed all 11 of us to enjoy meals together. The home is beautifully decorated, lots of attention to detail, but also feels homey. The kitchen has absolutely everything needed. Having all linens and beach towels included is unusual in my experience, but made packing much easier, as did having a washer and dryer in the house. But really, even if the house wasn't as lovely, a visit would be worth it for the view from the deck and screened in porch overlooking the ocean. From coffee first thing in the morning, to a glass of wine as the moon reflected on water, it just couldn't have been more beautiful. We also enjoyed watching lobstermen/women pull in their traps right from our deck. Southport Island is a favorite vacation destination for our family, and this house was the perfect place to stay while there.

What an amazing place to spend a week with our children and grandchildren. The views were wonderful, very serene and calming place to relax, perfect for a family get away! The home is full of character and eclectic decor. We will hold on to the memories we made here for a very long time.

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spends a week on the coast of Maine each summer. We live in central Maine so it isnt a time we do all the "tourist" stuff but more of a time to reconnect and just be. This home had all we needed for the perfect week! Plenty of sleeping space, great kitchen to cook our meals together and the views, oh the views! Classic Maine Coastal home.. thank you Libby :)
