Camden house description

Our Blunting Blue is a fully furnished 2 bedroom house on 3.4 acres with a dock and lake frontage on Hosmer Pond. Included in the rental is: WiFi, Satellite, Utilities and 2 Pamlico 100 kayaks. The house is across the lake (great fishing and ice fishing) from the Camden Snow Bowl (where you can ski with a view of the ocean), which is Camden's recreation center: skiing, tubing, tennis, hiking, mountain biking and home of the National Toboggan Championships.

The house is less than a 5 min drive from several other hikes (Bald Rock, Fernald's Neck, Maiden's Cliff, Mt.Battie and Beech Hill Preserve), 3 miles from downtown Camden, surrounding the gorgeous Camden Harbor; with fine dining, casual dining, shopping, Schooner sailing and more, 3 miles from Laite Beach and 2 miles from the Goose River Golf Club. We are only 10 miles from downtown Rockland, Maine which is home to the Blues Festival and the Lobster festival. Rockland also has a beautiful harbor with the Breakwater lighthouse, which is a historic lighthouse at the end of a lovely walk across the 7/8 mile long breakwater.

There are two bedrooms in the house, each with a queen sized bed. The other rooms are: a bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room with a sofa sleeper, and reading nook with a futon. There is also an enclosed porch and a large outdoor deck.

Because we are dogs lovers ourselves, we do allow house-trained dogs, with a security deposit.

In Maine there is an 8% sales tax on vacation rentals, and we also charge a $100.00 cleaning fee.

              The house is located on Hosmer Pond, which is the lake that abuts the Camden Snow Bowl. The Snow Bowl boasts: tennis, skiing, mountain biking, hiking; all right across the lake. There is a dock on the property with two Pamlico 100 Kayaks for use by renters.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Family of five, three children all under the age of 4. We have two dogs and love the idea of being able to provide a comfortable home for people who also like to vacation with their dogs.

              Why the Owner Chose Camden:
              We love this property because it has so much acreage and it is on the lake that abuts the Camden Snow Bowl Recreation Center. Perfect for year round outdoor activities and just a hop, skip and a jump from town.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We have two pamlico 100 kayaks (and accessories) for renters to use while they are visiting. You can walk out of the house, right down to the lake, onto our dock and take the kayaks for a ride on the gorgeous lake surrounded by Ragged Mountain (Camden Snow Bowl Recreation Center).
