About Dee dee Conover

I am a retired widow and live here in Camden fall, winter and the summer I move with my family to the keepers house on Curtis Island to take care of the Island and the light house. I have grown up sailing on Penobscot Bay, My family,4 grown children and grand children, all live in Camden. We lived many summers on a sailboat sailing the coast of Maine and beyond. We are avid skiers, hikers, and love being in the outdoors

Dee dee Conover purchased this house in 1995

Why Dee dee Conover chose Camden

I love this house and the location...i can walk to the village, row my boat to Curtis island, see the sunsets from my kitchen window, look across the harbor to Harbor Park and yet be very quiet in my back yard. It really is the best location......

What makes this house unique

A modest library catering to sailing....

The beautiful sunsets seen from the living room over the mountains

A unique front yard swing..

Upright piano

Very extensive colored bottle collection

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is wonderful now to stay in this comfortable home a step from the harbor and on the quiet side.

Comfortable, well stocked home

  • 3 of 5

The home has comfortable beds and good water pressure in the shower. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and utensils but it would be nice to have a microwave and and ice maker.

It is in an easy walking distance to town.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and has lots of character. We loved the well equipped kitchen, the cozy breakfast corner, and the large garden. It was also very well located, in walking distance from the center of town and the harbor.

Another wonderful stay in Camden

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Dee Dee Conover for a perfect vacation week. The house is wonderful for a family, complete with breakfast nook, large dinner table, beautiful yard, piano, and, in our case, crib and high chair. The sea breeze keeps the house cool and Sea Street is the best location in town. A beautifully maintained home.

26 Sea Street

  • 5 of 5

To say that this fabulous home is the best location in town is an understatement as to how accessible it is to Camden and surrounding harbors and highways. We have vacationed in many VRBOs, and we can say that this home had to be one of the best. From the moment we walked in and met the wonderful owner, we knew this would be a special stay...and it was. From the well-stocked kitchen, to the comfortable kitchen nook (our favorite place) to the library with sailing journals and other memorabilia, to the comfortable bedrooms, we enjoyed every room. The best way to describe this home is that it has a soul. We "felt" the history, the fun family times that we knew had taken place and love of family and friends that this home has experienced. We will be back....and we can't wait!
