About the property

Simple Perfection

We enjoy about 85% repeat business at this location. It really is everyone's dream of the ideal Maine shingled cottage. Set on the water, private without being remote and convenient to all the area has to offer. We might add it is spotlessly clean with a wonderful attention to detail. Simply perfection. The property is fully equipped and well supplied with everything you would need for vacation living at it best.

About John Burgess

We own and operate Camden Hills Realty which manages this location. In our previous life we were with Marriott Hotels having enjoyed marketing and management assignments coast to coast. Moving to Maine was always a goal, well beyond a dream. We moved here 25 years ago and have enjoyed every minute. Maine is special and a bit of a throw back in time. Come and enjoy.

John Burgess purchased this cottage in 2005

This property is on everybody's 1st choice list. It has character and charm. It sits down on the waters of the Penobscot Bay. The views are peaceful and the activity on the bay provide the entertainment. It is a property that automatically creates great memories. You'll be back.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful, - beautifully situated on the water - providing everything one might need. The warmth and taste reflected throughout the house (colors, furniture, design features) and the provision of all conceivable necessities in the kitchen, bedrooms, baths, etc. enabled us to have a totally restful vacation. Our favorite pastimes were relaxing on the front porch overlooking the tranquil view and walking the few steps down to the waters edge. One runs out of superlatives in describing this fantastic rental. We've rented many places both in the US and Europe and this was by far one of the best. Thank you John and Linda for offering this extraordinary rental and for being wonderful hosts.

We absolutely loved our time at Isle Vue! This was the best way to experience Maine and so close to all there is in Camden, Belfast and Lincolnville. John Burgess brought us firewood more than once and took the trash. He and his wife Linda were so great and available if we needed anything, which we didn't. We watched the ferry every day going back and forth to Isleboro, the ocean is steps from the porch. One day the water is still and the next day bold crashing waves. What a wonderful place this is.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st experience using Home Away, and it definitely won't be our last. The house was exactly as described, well maintained, and well stocked with supplies. John and Linda were very responsive to our questions and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. The view of Penobscot Bay was stunning and the location in Maine was fun. I highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit this area of Maine.

Beautiful cottage with a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a unique cottage with a comfortable floor plan and wonderful views. John and Linda are great hosts and they provided for all our needs before our arrival. Lincolnville Beach is conveniently located between Belfast and Camden and there are no lack of fun activities around here. We'll come back here next year for sure!

Owner's Response: Ile Vue Cottage is one of the most popular rentals in the area for exactly the reasons stated. We might add a wonderful attention to amenities detail which drives about an 85% repeat factor. Some guests have been staying with us for 10 years or more... John & Linda Burgess

One advantage of the area is it is "un-crowded" with lots of things to do and see. The Camden to Belfast area provides a pleasant vacation experience with no shortage of recreational opportunities, shops, restaurants, galleries and cultural activities. The area is centrally located for day trips to all parts of Maine to include Bar Harbor, Moosehead Lake, Portland, LL Bean, Bangor and more. You really can't go wrong choosing the Camden- Belfast-Rockland area for your next mini-escape or vacation. It active and attractive for all age groups. Join us at Ile Vue Cottage.
