"Our entire family just returned from a great vacation in Camden, ME and we stayed at this beautiful rental home. The home is spacious and extremely well appointed. We had our 3 grandchildren, ages 4-15, their parents and the two grandparents. Room for everyone. By far our favorite feature was the large wrap around porch. We spent practically every minute were not our exploring on the porch. Morning coffee, sometimes lunch, afternoon wine, after dinner wind down. It is perfect!
The photos that you see on the listing are very accurate and you will not be disappointed. The downtown area is walkable and the nearby beach area as well. I can't recommend this accommodation highly enough. Thanks to Tobias and Christine for offering their lovely home for our family's vacation."

"This house is in a prime location on a private beach, which is extremely rare to come by in Maine. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. There are a lot of comfortable seating areas both inside and out. The beds are great... nice sheets and firm mattresses! They are a big difference from most rental properties! My family had a fantastic stay in this cottage and we plan to return for many years to come!"

"House is within easy walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in Camden. Directly across the street is Camden Harbor. Plenty of benches and areas to just sit and relax and enjoy the harbor. Also, the Camden Public Library is just down the street. Very nice little library.
Upon arriving the house was immaculately clean. All the bedrooms had very comfortable beds and bedding. The dining room has a large table with plenty of seating. The side of the house has spacious decking with chairs and a table.
The only con's - Limited parking space for the house and no TV in the downstairs main living area. It would have been nice to have a fire pit in the backyard.
Overall I felt this was a very good rental. If you are visiting Camden this is a good place to stay."

"When I first started researching a Maine vacation property to rent for a week I focused on traditional coastal cottages. What I found was that most of properties were, well--a bit too rustic for my tastes or the cost too high. When I came across River Watch it immediately caught my attention. Although it was a more modern cottage, it met all of our other wants and needs. I sent an email with a few questions to the owners, Kathryn and Joe, and it was promptly answered with warmth and friendliness. In fact, Kathryn was truly a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire rental process.
When we arrived at the cottage and opened the door to that incredible view--wow! It was heaven. Simply put, you have 180-degrees of peaceful water views. The deck with the Adirondack recliners as well as the chairs next to the water enabled us to enjoy six beautiful sunsets. The main cottage (and small guest house, which our college-age son used) had all the amenities imaginable; it was obvious that Kathryn and Joe put much thought into the needs and comfort of their renters. The den area (with that incredible view) had comfortable furniture, flat-screen TV, DVR, stereo system and a supply of DVD movies to peruse on rainy days (of which we had only one!) There was no cable/satellite TV, but there was high-speed internet and wifi and honestly, we did not miss watching TV shows one bit! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook dinner using the fresh ingredients you could buy at the local markets and farm stands. There was even a charcoal grill in the shed that we used twice. The large bathroom had a full supply of bath and beach towels and under the sink was sun block and mosquito repellant. The bathroom in the guesthouse was similarily supplied. There was a full-size washer and dryer in the garage, as well as laundry detergent, spot remover spray and dryer sheets. The living area with the fireplace at the front of the house was not used by us very much, since it was pleasantly warm while we were there. But I can imagine a toasty fire would be nice to sit around when there's more of a chill in the evening air. The bedrooms were of a decent size with small closets that easily held a week's worth of clothes. The property was fairly close to several charming villages and Rockland for any major supplies.
It was difficult to leave this beautiful place but we hope to come back someday!
Hint--take the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island."
