Beautiful Cozy Cottage
"We spent a week in Maine and stayed at this adorable cottage. We walked in and right away new we chose the right place. The house (bathrooms) were really clean. And everything we needed was there. The beds were comfy and the location was central to everything we wanted to do on the coast. We could walk to the shops and restaurants in Camden which was really nice. At the end of the day we enjoyed a glass of wine on the back patio and enjoyed the beautiful gardens. The air conditioners were a plus too as it was in the the high 80's while we were there. We highly recommend this sweet cottage!"

"Quiet lake house within close proximity to three great seaside towns with good restaurants and shopping. You get the best of both worlds with the woods and lakes as well as the ocean. The owners were great as we got lost coming in and they responded immediately. The house provided a great week of peaceful relaxation with kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Enjoyed watching and listening to the different birds. I highly recommend The Call of the Loon."

"After being on a windjammer for 5 days (which I loved), the privacy of The Ashgrove was perfect. As the couple before me stated, I too found I wanted to spend more time "home". Lucy was so gracious, welcoming, and helpful. Kitchen- a treat to cook in- site pictures show ample counter space and the view out to the trees a pleasure while preparing food or cleaning up. The overall space of the apt is roomy, good storage, plenty of light. The mattress was comfortable and I liked the way the bed was tucked off to the side- felt cozy that way. Great to walk to the water and I enjoyed spending time on shore-sunshine and one foggy morning. The picture of path ending at the water doesn't do justice to what one finds once one emerges onto the shore. (Seeing the Islesboro Ferry come and go was fun, also.) When in Camden before, I had never stayed outside the town and being further north encouraged me to explore Belfast. I found this location easy to explore the inland countryside and more around Lake Megunticook, coming from Lincolnville, rather than Camden for a different perspective. I did eat in, but also out: Belfast on Sunday late afternoon of Labor Day got hungry (was parked across the street from La Vida, so gave it a try. I chose the locally raised chorizo fajitas and liked it). In Camden I enjoyed a second year of meals at Longrain , as well as winning meals at the new restaurant Pig and Poet at Whitehall Inn. I visited Camden State Park, drove to the top and then hiked the Mt. Battie trail. I would have liked to do another trail, also, but I was still recovering from 4 days of intense hiking on Vinalhaven Island.
I recommend staying here. If not for the affordable price I wouldn't be able to extend my vacation extra days after the Windjammer. Something this nice that is so affordable is appreciated (and some goodies from the organic!) Two things to be aware of: One minor frustration was some WiFi issues . Some times I needed to be on-line and I had to go outside to the steps or stand in the driveway to have it work- booster had been installed, but I guess there are some kinks to work out. Not a huge issue for me, but one that could be serious if needing to do work. One other small thing to adjust to was the sink set-up in the bathroom area. But I did and it became a non issue. To sit on the deck in day or night was wonderfully relaxing and private- basically, bottom line is that I am so glad I found and chose The Ashgrove! Thanks for everything."

"Beautiful cottage with plenty of room and lots of extra touches such as skylights and balconies, daybeds, kayaks, plenty of bathrooms, right on the lake. Our grandson loved fishing right off the dock and we especially liked the location of the house on the lake. Very scenic and great for swimming and kayaking. Also we enjoyed the short distance to Camden for shopping and great seafood dinners overlooking the harbor. We would definitely consider going back."
