Property description

Hello Travelers, We have a beautiful two bedroom apartment in the Maine woods. Please read the reviews that our guests have written below. For the last three summers we have been 85-90% full through June, July, August and most of September. July 27 through August 3 is open for Lobster Festival time. August 29 through the end of October are WIDE OPEN.
Our "apartment in the Maine woods' was built 2005 to attract our sons and their families to visit. We have 2 daughters in law to please so you know it is extra nice. It is pine paneled, has 2 bedrooms, a medium size living area, a single bath with a stall shower, a full kitchen and a deck overlooking Crockett Brook as it babbles by. Guests seem to love it. We provide all linen, most condiments, paper goods and most other thing you might need. We even supply tooth paste See our web site with a video of the apartment at <camdenmainevacationrental.com> OUR PHONE IS 813-417-3751.
It is 300 yard hike to Penobscot Bay. We frequently see raccoons, fox, porcupines and occasionally see deer, moose and skunks. Today we saw two fawns on our property.
All that and lobster too.
Our property is very kid friendly. Much for them to do here and in the area, sailing, water skiing, hiking, mountain climbing, rock climbing, biking, kayaking on Lake Megunticook and on the Penobscot Bay and more. Also many toys for toddlers plus a Pack N' Play.
Our guests like to go to Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park, Freeport (LL Bean plus outlet stores), Camden Hills State Park and Camden Harbor, which is 15 minutes away. Windjammer sailing rides and charter sailboat rides with Coast Guard licensed sailboat Captain Nancy Rowe are available in Camden. It is a beautiful (calender picture) area. There are many art galleries in the area including the Farnsworth Museum which features many works of the Wyeths.
Our rent for July, August and the first two weeks in September are $600.00 per week. May, June, the last 2 weeks of September and the month of October are $500 /week. Please call for current availability.
We have LARGE SCREEN HDTV, WIFI, VCR, DIRECT TV, STEREO AND A BIG LIBRARY OF BOOKS AND DVDS. WE ALSO HAVE QUIET DAYS AND NIGHTS, GREAT READING OPPORTUNITIES AND "NAPPING". We aren't professional inn keepers but we do our best to make your Maine experience so MEMORABLE you will want to come back.
Thank you for your consideration.

Car: Recommended

Duck Trap Village. Day trips to LL Bean, Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park, Camden Hills State Park, hike to Penobscot Bay. The Camden area has so much to keep you busy while you are here. There is sight seeing, shopping at many gift shops, fishing, boating (sailing, power, kayaking, canoeing and wind surfing), swimming, hiking, mountain climbing, rock climbing, tennis, golf, enjoying the vistas from so many places. Dine at many of our seafood restaurants.

At our apartment you can enjoy the other beauty of Maine, the serenity of the Maine woods. Here you can sleep, read, hang out, watch Crockett Brook running by, hike 400 yards to the Penobscot Bay, enjoy lobster, clams, crab with a bottle of wine on the deck. We will show you how to cook your lobster.

We recommend that you read the REVIEWS of our APARTMENT here on VRBO.

They have described the place as peaceful, serene, private, like home and one 'really cute'.
