Amazing location, perfect space for a large group and your dog!
We had such an amazing time here over NYE weekend...even with the negative temps!! Robert could not have been more accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. The house is perfect for a large family or group. Plenty of beds and bedrooms and extra play spaces for kids. So much room to spread out. The pictures don’t do it justice. The loft upstairs was perfect for the girls to have their own space and the giant TV was a big hit with the kids. The back side of the house looks out into Camden Harbor and we enjoyed incredible sunrises and sunsets each day. Camden center is literally steps away and there are so many shops and restaurants to enjoy. Even with the arctic cold we walked into town a few times to shop and/or eat. There is a Hannaford Supermarket 5-10 mins down the road. Rockport and Rockland are close by and offer more shops and restaurants. We also hit up an indoor ice rink and movie theatre. We wanted to take advantage of the Camden Snowbowl but the frigid temps prevented us. There is a great fireplace in the main living room that we enjoyed the entire stay. This place would be even more incredible in the summer months. Thanks Robert for providing all of us (even our dog!) with a perfect spot to ring in 2018!
Thanks Jen. We are very happy your
Family enjoyed our home. Your positive review will be a big help
getting our HomeAway adventure off to a good start.

Hi Again Jen, Here is an update following up on your suggestions. We have added a second large TV in the left living room corner as you face the fireplace. This will allow our
full size guests to enjoy both TV and fireplace
while the little ones watch in the TV room.
We have added a corner electric fireplace to the bedroom across from the master providing a cozy heat source. Thanks for the ideas.
