Owner info

About the owner: We moved to Maine from San Francisco about 13 years ago with our daughter and twin boys. We have since had to move elsewhere, but LOVE coming back to Maine. We have moved all over due to my husbands work, but Maine is where my kids consider their home. It is a very special and unique place.

Why the Owner Chose Camden:
My husband, three children and I moved to Maine about 13 years ago from San Francisco. We fell in love with this historical home at first sight! It needed a little TLC, we have redone all of the gardens, remodeled a little inside and updated, but left original pieces and charm. Our lives have since taken us to other places, but we could never let go of our piece of heaven go! We stay at Diamond Hill when we can, but want to share it with others when we cannot. It is a very special place to all of us. Beyond the beauty and views, we also love the location; a mile away from downtown Camden, but set in the quite village of Rockpport, best of both worlds, a central location but also the peace and quiet. The front deck is fantastic for coffee in the morning, hanging out with everyone in the evening.
