Unparalleled and unobstructed views of both the inner and outer harbor in beautiful Camden, Maine. Perched on the ledges directly on the harbor, 'The Shop' is the perfect location to enjoy everything that a vacation on the water provides. Sit on the deck and enjoy the active harbor views with constant activity directly in front of you. Easy walking distance to downtown Camden, with all it's restaurants and quaint shops. Also easy walking to the town beach. The views from inside and from on the deck can not be compared with any others in Camden. As one previous guest has stated 'this is the most beautiful spot in the world.' Sorry, but pets and smoking are not allowed in 'The Shop'.

Charming Cottage on Camden Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views of Camden Harbor and easy walking distance to town. Wonderful outside deck with retractable awning. Exciting to see all of the boats coming in and going out of the harbor. A fun place to cook if you wish to stay in. Comfortable, cozy and very clean. We always enjoy our stay.

"The Shop" is a Winner - Cozy - Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is remarkable. Comfortable and cozy with incredible views. The deck is large and has a wonderful awning - a great place to relax and watch the most amazing boats go by. The inside is very clean and tidy and there wasn't anything - from lobster plates to coffee filters or any cooking utensil you can think of that wasn't there!

"The Shop" is very close (only a couple of blocks) from the center of Camden and you can walk anywhere. The restaurants in town are very good and so is the shopping.

My husband and I have stayed at "The Shop" for two years and will be back again next year to enjoy three blissful weeks. The owners are great people and they provide easy access and very good service. We highly recommend this rental to anyone who is going to Camden, Maine.

Incredable location, best view of the whole harbor

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous scenery, friendly people,

Fine dining, and great shopping.

Or just stay indoors and watch yachts from all over the world come and go while catching up on some reading. Terrific!

About Douglas Young

This property has been in our family since the 1940's. For many years it served as the workshop for my grandfather who was a lobsterman. In 1990 my parents rebuilt 'the shop' and made it 3 floors of living space to be used as a summer rental. My mother still lives in the house directly across the street.

Douglas Young purchased this cottage in 1940
