Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Evelyn !

We had a wonderful time ! We've never been to Maine before and we just feel in love with it. Camden is spectacular !

We really liked your cottage. We spent hours on the deck watching the sunrises and the salt water loons. The views from your place are priceless ! And, you're right...the weather was perfect.

I'm so glad we left the place the way you like it...we're jealous you were there a week after us...we would have loved another week !!!

Thank you for sharing your cottage with us. It was wonderful !

Just what the Doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage, our only regret was that we couldn't stay another week! The view is outstanding, second to none! We just loved the beach, watching the tide ebb and flow, the lobster boats checking their traps, the loons disappearing under water, the islands dotting the horizon and the peaceful solitude of sitting still and taking it all in.

This charming cottage was perfectly equipped for our needs, very comfortable clean and cozy and love that porthole in the shower! The seclusion it offers, yet close proximity to the quaint Town of Camden was very covenant. There was so much to see and do, we literally hiked and ate at a different locations every day and were never disappointed.

Thank you for being so helpful accommodating Evelyn!

We look forward to our next visit and rest assured I will definitely recommend Penobscot Cottage to my friends!

Thank you and until next year!

Amazing views, great location, and very charming, but be prepared for open floor plan

  • 4 of 5

We LOVED this cottage, and look forward to staying here again someday. The location is a great jumping-off point for exploring the Maine coast, convenient to Camden but totally secluded (great stargazing). The views just can't be beat and we enjoyed walking right down to the beach. If we had more time, we would have done lots of hiking right down the street at Camden Hills State Park. We LOVE the hand-tiled and stone shower with the porthole looking out to the ocean!The open floor plan didn't detract from our enjoyment, but we thought should have been made clearer what that meant. Even though it has two bedrooms, the ceilings are all open to each other and the living area, which means that there is no privacy at all for conversation, watching tv, listening to the radio, etc. - you need to really get along (which we do). The bathroom has a separate ceiling but with no wall insulation that doesn't really add any privacy either. Again, this didn't detract from our stay, just think it shouldn't be a surprise for anyone.

Relaxing Coastal Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at the cottage. Close (<2 miles) to the lovely town of Camden but felt a million miles away from everything.

So much to do in Camden and the area. Also, great food of all types. If we come back to Maine, this is the only place we'll look to book.

Cozy bay cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you love the sound of the tides, and the feel of the breezes and peace and quiet, you will love this cottage! It is adorable and has everything you need, including a comfortable deck and screened porch to enjoy the sights and sounds. Plus, there are views of the bay from every room in the home, including the shower. The owner was very nice and provided helpful directions and suggestions. Lots to do in and around Camden/Rockland/Rockport and only an hour's drive to take a ferry to Monhegan Island or see the puffins (at the right time of the year). We also loved Pig & Poet, a nearby restaurant. We will definitely return!

A delightful escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cabin for 8 marvelous nights. The pictures don't do it justice…you are literally right above the water at high tide, and there is a path to the water's edge. Watching the birds, chipmunks, and red squirrels scamper among the fall foliage was a treat. The cottage was awesome; I felt I was getting a true "Maine camp" experience, and it was very, very CLEAN. It also looked loved, and taken care of….interesting things abounded in the cabin, and you had all the creature comforts of home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need. The shower was huge, with 2 shower heads, very hot water, AND, a porthole that gives you a view of Penobscot Bay as you shower! The best thing I can say is that it was just so "comfortable" that it was hard to leave to take day trips.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at your cottage. And we look forward to staying there again. Very convenient to Camden and points up and down the coast. But also very secluded. I don't know how many times I missed the turn at night. The views were amazing and the location very peaceful. At night we would have a fire on the beach and watch the super blood full moon raise out of the east. One day it rained about 5" but we just laid around listening to the rain on the roof and watch the waves crash into the rocks. The cottage is perfect for a couple but as other reviews have noted it may not be the best for more people. We are already planning our next trip when we come up for your sons college graduation. Thanks again for letting us use your cottage Evelyn.
