Very clean and nicely decorated with all of the comforts of home. We had no issues during our stay or in contact with the owner regarding a few questions prior to our visit. The location is perfect, beautiful view and access to the river. The little market just down the road was very convenient for food items and lunches. Camden is beautiful. Quick and easy access to town and the local state park. Plenty of shops and restaurants. My only word of caution would be for anybody with mobility issues or those with small children. Steps are steep inside and outside of the home.

Perfect place to relax or to use as a base camp - the choice is yours!

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and well-kept property. Perfect for our family - the kids loved having their own quarters and private bathroom downstairs. We enjoyed the private dock and watching the loons, fish and turtles swim by. We were less than 10 minutes from great hiking and shopping and only 15 minutes from Lincolnville Beach (ocean swimming). Property is right next to a local beach/park, so lots of opportunity for swimming, but also a lot of traffic in and out during the day. We had a couple of minor questions for the owner on our first day and she responded right away. We had perfect weather the whole week, but there are plenty of books, games and DVDs on site in case of rainy days. We found it a bonus to have linens and towels provided - saved us room when packing! This place is a treasure!

Excellent stay in Camden

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay for the 4th of July week 2016. Comfortable. Everything is in good working order. Unique and clean. A little warm in the lower level sleeping quarters and unable to open windows below, which would have helped. Otherwise great. Enjoyed the floating dock in the mornings for coffee. Nice yard and enjoyed the running on the country roads. Be careful as a narrow shoulder until you get closer to town, but as an avid runner, I felt safer there than near my own suburban home. Thanks for the memories!

Cozy and relaxing vacation at the Round House

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at the Round House in beautiful Camden! The house comfortably fit 4 adults (2 grandparents and 2 parents) and 2 young children (ages 6 & 8). The location is perfect - far enough away from downtown to feel rural but close enough to be convenient to the amenities. We absolutely loved the views from the deck to the private dock. The views of the lake and the mountains were incredible and so relaxing. The haunting call of the loons (2 adult loons and 2 fledglings) greeted us each morning as we enjoyed our coffee on the dock.

Although downtown Camden is a mile from the house, I do not suggest walking to it. There are no side walks for a good portion of the walk and the road is very narrow with many vehicles speeding by. A trip up to Bar Harbor is about an hour and 45 minutes away but the little towns that you will pass through are well worth stopping in. We found the Cellardoor winery in Lincolnville to be exceptional - so much so that we went there twice and the drive around Megunticook lake is exquisite!

There was a misunderstanding regarding the kayaks but dealing with Karin and Steve was easy and very much a pleasure. We recommend this house for a family getaway.

Loved this House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house (2 couples) for 2 nights in May. It is perfectly decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed the large deck and spent a lot of time on it. The yard is very big and goes down to the river, with a small private dock. The owner was extremely easy to work with and very helpful. She even came by when we couldn't get the TV to work (something we were doing wrong). It has a well stocked kitchen. She has brochures and info about the town and surrounding area. It was extremely clean and had a small gas stove which kept us warm enough. The stairs to the basement and 2nd bedroom are very steep, so make sure you are OK with that. There is a second full bath down there.

We drove to town. It is a bit far to walk. This is the perfect house to stay in to explore the whole area.
