Enjoyed our temporary home in Camden!
The cottage was in a wonderful location and we loved our stay. it is an old property but has been updated and decorated with special touches. The little nook in the kitchen to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine; the secluded deck off the kitchen for dining or just relaxing;. the air conditioner in the bedroom was helpful.
The 10-15 minute stroll downtown to the harbor, where you can just admire the boats or actually take an eco-cruise or a sailboat ride add to the pleasure of this wonderful town.; and of course the great restaurants were all pluses.
We appreciated having a washer and dryer available, too.
The neighborhood was charming. Most homes had wonderful flower displays and picket fences that harmonized with the beautiful town of Camden.,so you could enjoy the views as you walked into town.
It's great to feel like a local, if even for a short time.
We couldn't be happier with our stay. The location was wonderful. We were so close to downtown that we walked there. We also within walking distance to the park with the dog-friendly beach. Colleen allowed us to have our two small dogs with us which made our vacation even better. Colleen was only a text away if we needed her, and she was also across the street. The home was also very close to Chestnut Street. This street allows you to exit/enter Camden via Rockport, which is much nicer than being in the traffic of Route 1.
There are a few things you should know. The "master bedroom" is a thoroughfare. The guests in the second bedroom walk through the master. Everyone needing to use the bathroom walk through the master. Anyone doing laundry walk through the master. None of this bothered us at all, but it might bother some. Oh, the second unit (3B) is attached to this home (3A). We could hear a little noise. Again, it didn't bother us, but you should know. Finally, the deck is open to neighbors. There's a home very close on one side, and unit 3B on the other. I could see it bothering some, but it didn't bother us.
This place is what my wife class "cute as a bug's ear." We'd stay here again without hesitation.
Great location of a charming Camden cottage.
The owners are so friendly and easy to communicate with. The cottage was perfect for our needs. It was comfortable and well stocked. We loved being able to walk into town. We especially appreciated the deck and yard as we had our dog who loves to sit out in the sun. This was our first time in Camden and we look forward to returning. We loved the hikes, great restaurants, friendly people and beautiful scenery.
Lovely cottage just blocks from Penobscot Bay.
Great location, quiet and away from traffic, but just blocks to downtown. Perfect spot for relaxing week along the coast. Tree lined streets for walking our older dog. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen (even the perfect pot for cooking lobsters we bought off the docks!), breezy back deck. Owners were close by and very helpful.
This perfect little home is quintessentially “Maine” and screams “Charming Coastal Cottage”.
We arrived at this rental not really knowing what to expect...we were new to Maine and new to HomeWay. What we found almost blew our minds...it was a month-long home for our family on an incredibly quiet street that was just two blocks from the harbor and four blocks from the local bakeries, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops, art galleries, the public beach and park, and everything else Camden has to offer. The location is insanely convenient! We also realized that we were directly across the street from our host, who dropped in and made sure we had arrived safely and had found everything we needed in her cottage, which is a perfectly preserved 19th-century home that she and her husband updated without removing any of its historical charm. The entire space was incredibly clean and SUPER comfy...our two children found a twin bedroom with boutique-hotel quality sheets, pillows, and comforters. We parents found the same high-level quality bedding in the queen master that also held a sizable walk-in closet, laundry, and tub/shower bathroom. Not necessarily needed, but appreciated, was an air conditioning unit for those very rare hot afternoons (I think we had 4 for the entire month). The kitchen was very well equipped (no dishwasher, but we just told our spoiled children that they were in a living history lesson and handed them the sponge and towel). We ate most evening meals at home and found everything we needed for preparing, serving, and storing. There’s a cute little breakfast nook that we used as a “quiet space” in the mornings. The living/dining room, though, is the real shine of this jewel...gorgeous plank hardwood floors almost mirror-shined and tongue-in-groove bead board walls stained and polished...it was absolutely beautiful! The entire home is thoughtfully decorated with original art, comfy and plush furniture, and antique cabinets, armoires, and tables. There’s a small library of videos to go along with the cable tv and a sideboard with family games that we put to use almost nightly. We enjoyed the flower boxes overflowing with blooms and the wonderful landscaping in front that frames this cozy home. There’s also a sizable deck off of the kitchen with a table/chairs and umbrella that we used a lot...the deck leads to a nice backyard that is kept mown by the host...our little lap dogs really enjoyed that! We hope to return what we have dubbed “our home again” often. It surpassed all of our expectations.
We loved the two bedroom cottage. We used the second bedroom to store our suitcases and etc. It was extremely clean and comfortable. Its was a 5 - 10 minute walk to downtown and the harbor. Colleen was absolutely wonderful to work with!!!! And.... she shared a ton of info about the area, food and things to do!!!! I very highly recommend this property!!!!! Colleen is by far the best property owner we have ever worked with!!!!
