"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."

Cozy, beautiful garden setting nestled between mountains and the Bay.
"Perfect size for the two of us for a week. We had good weather and found new trails nearby every day, often the only walkers. Day trips to Camden, BarHarbor and Acadia, and out of the way lighthouses were great! Enjoyed meeting Grechen and Steve and got good advice on where to hike. Food choices were unlimited and always tasty! Recommend the Friday night pizza at Dolci Vita. The stairs are steep, just as shown, so need to be considered if that might be an issue for you. This was our first trip to Maine and we thoroughly enjoyed the farmhouse and gardens as our home for the week."

"Spent the week of July 4 at the Wicked Cute camp with our family of four (two adults and two tweens). The location was awesome. Norton Pond is stunningly beautiful, and the private dock makes it a great place to kayak, swim and fish. We rented kayaks from Duck Trap Kayak, and they were great to work with. Was surprised by how quiet Norton Pond was, even with it being the week of July 4. The location is 10 minutes from Camden, the harbor, quaint shops, and great restaurants. Also within 10 minutes are lots of hiking trails with amazing views overlooking the bay, the lake, and mountains. Had a great clam dinner at roadside stand at bottom of Mt Battie, lobster at Young's Lobster Pound and clam chowder at Cappy's.
The Owner is very pleasant and accommodating. Answered all of my questions very promptly. The cottage is quaint and comfortable. This was our first trip to Maine, and it was fantastic! Would love to go back again someday! And if we do, we're coming back to Wicked Cute camp!"

"We rented this charming farmhouse for a week with another couple and our two labradoodles. Worked out great. The house is in a perfect location, nearly equidistant to the harbor towns of both Camden and Lincolnville. About a mile down the road is the trail head for some excellent hiking (I highly recommend hiking to the top of Bald Rock Mountain if you can...gorgeous views of the ocean for miles). And, the wonderful Cellardoor winery is less than a quarter mile from the house. Free tours and wine tastings...you can just walk home if necessary!
House was well equipped for just about anything we needed. Nice to sit out on the back deck in the morning and have coffee overlooking the backyard pasture. The house is quite old, but has been well taken care of, including new windows throughout. Kitchen stocked with all the necessities, though we only ate home once (so much to explore in the area).
Amanda was a pleasure to work with. Fortunately, we didn't run into any problems. We would definitely recommend this house to friends wanting a place to stay in the Camden area."
