Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I am a retired widow and live here in Camden fall, winter and the summer I move with my family to the keepers house on Curtis Island to take care of the Island and the light house. I have grown up sailing on Penobscot Bay, My family,4 grown children and grand children, all live in Camden. We lived many summers on a sailboat sailing the coast of Maine and beyond. We are avid skiers, hikers, and love being in the outdoors

Why the Owner Chose Camden:
I love this house and the location...i can walk to the village, row my boat to Curtis island, see the sunsets from my kitchen window, look across the harbor to Harbor Park and yet be very quiet in my back yard. It really is the best location......

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A modest library catering to sailing.... The beautiful sunsets seen from the living room over the mountains A unique front yard swing.. Upright piano Very extensive colored bottle collection
