About Jen

My husband, Erik, and I, recently moved to Camden from Florida. We fell in love with Camden and the beautiful surrounding area, so much so that we decided to make the life-changing decision to relocate our family here. Erik retired from the US Air Force last year, so the move here really has been a lifestyle change as well as a life-changing one. I am British and Camden really offers a home-from-home "English" feel. The history of our house is an interesting one - the previous owners bought the house in 1996. It had been empty and neglected for the previous three years before that. Our home, which we call 'Capt Taylor', had been originally built by a sea captain in 1903 and it has now been lovingly restored into a beautiful family home.

Jen purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Jen chose Camden

The proximity to town and its amenities was one of the major reasons for choosing to buy this house. Camden is a bustling little town with lots of things going on all year. We want our home to feel like your home while you're here.

What makes this apartment unique

This a 'home-away-from-home' place to stay!

You'll love a leisurely walk to the harbor for breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of Camden's many fine restaurants, a sunset cruise on a schooner and afterwards relaxing on your front porch with a glass of wine. For those looking for a more energetic vacation, we have Mt Battie on our doorstep with great hiking trails. And not having to drive and find somewhere to park is truly a great benefit.

Well appointed home with added touches to make it special.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our 2nd visit to Captain Smith on Mountain Street! Sitting on the wraparound porch was our favorite spot in the morning for coffee and the late afternoon for cocktails and dinner. Jen and Eric were very accommodating and made arrangements to have lobsters delivered along with a steamer for a true Maine experience!!'

We stayed at Captain Smith for a girls weekend in Oct, 2016. It was fabulous. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, and plenty of room for 5 women. The kitchen was great. Living room with fireplace was lovely as it was cold in the evenings. The wrap around porch is a great place to have coffee in the morning or drinks in afternoon. Location was great and a short walk to town or longer walk to State Park. The owners were fabulous and very helpful. Overall a perfect long weekend. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.

Beautiful town and house

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in October 2016 and fell in love with Camden and this beautiful home. The house is just a street or two away from town and the harbor. We really enjoyed walking everywhere. The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. The hosts, Jen and Eric, were very friendly and helpful. Eric helped start a fire in the fireplace on a chilly evening! Don't hesitate to rent this place. It will be the highlight of your vacation

The apartment is lovely and very well maintained. We loved all the little notes around to help you navigate the idiosyncrasies of dealing with a new space. It added to the homey feeling. The kitchen is very well stocked and it's always great to have a washer and dryer. Its location is ideal and a quick walk to downtown.

We have been vacationing in Camden for many years, usually for 2-3 weeks at a time. Often it is delightfully cool, however, when it is hot it can be very uncomfortable.There are 3 bedrooms and only the "master" has an air conditioner. It was very hot when we were there and had we had guests (which we often do) I think it would have been uncomfortable for them.

We will definitely be back!

Bedrooms 2 and 3 definitely needed window air conditioners, excessive noise level from street traffic, TV very inadequate. All else satisfactory.
