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.

Wonderful House, Great Town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 days at this charming and very clean round house. The house was exactly as described and pictured. The house had everything we needed for a great vacation. Every morning we had coffee on the deck over looking the lake, and every night we finish the day on the private dock with a nice glass of wine. Several days we kayaked around the lake and enjoyed the changing fall leaves.

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook many of our meals, the bed was comfortable and the great room was very warm and cozy with a nice gas "wood" stove.

Camden and Rockland are wonderful little towns full of fun shops, bars and restaurants. My favorite shop was Seagull Cottage in Rockland.

We went to see many of the Lighthouses in the area and drove the Baxter State Park to see the Fall colors.

I highly recommend for a relaxing vacation stay at the Round House in Camden, Maine.

Perfect Family Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5

Hi there! I just got done booking my week at the Round House for the second year in a row and I'll be counting down the days until June!!

Last year we had the best time fishing, swimming and kayaking at the lake that is basically in the back yard of this rental! What a beautiful location with the mountains and lake!! The house is SO comfortable and clean! My husband and I loved that the kids had their own floor with their own bathroom! We had lots of alone time after the kids went to bed and fell in love with the beautiful, sweet Maine night air! The deck is so big and we spent most nights outside drinking wine and listening to the loons on the lake. We are very lucky to have secured the dates we wanted in june because I could never go back to hotels after experiencing the Round house!

Ps. I never really liked rental houses because some of the ones I've stayed in have been poorly decorated and a bit dirty! The Round house is spotless and decorated like Martha Stewart would decorate!! Who does your decorating anyway?



See you in June!
