About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A delightful location on Penobscot Bay, five-minutes drive from Camden, with its picturesque harbor, full of sailboats from around the world and its own schooner fleet. Trail heads, accessing Camden Hills State Park, are just a few minutes away. Views from the high points in the park are renowned for their extraordinary beauty and expansiveness, inspiring artists and poets for generations.

Surrounded by woods and fields, with a path to our private ocean shore, our deliciously cozy apartment is perfect for couples of all ages. It is situated in five acres of woods with several hundred feet of shoreline and is located about 100 feet from the main house. A footpath leads to the shore with views of the islands and passing sailboats, and where wind and tide bring sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic changes, from day to day.

Guests may stroll through our organically certified vegetable garden nearby, where vegetables are free for the picking!

The owner is a registered Maine guide and offers hiking and fishing trips in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a lovely long weekend. We enjoyed all things Maine--windjammer sail, lake swimming, seafood and watching a fisherman pick up lobster traps from our private beach! You have a lovely home & garden and we felt so welcomed here. We hope to see you again and will certainly recommend this retreat to friends! Thanks again.

Maine Seacoast, Ultimate Convenience

  • 5 of 5

Lucy and John couldn't have been nicer. Upon arriving they literally had the welcome mat (or chalkboard) out to greet you! They were responsive to all our needs and were quite helpful with dining suggestions both in Lincolnville and nearby Camden. I attended a week long class at Maine Media Workshop. All my classmates were jealous that we were staying at Ashgrove was convenient when we took photos at sunrise at nearby Lincolnville beach.

We would definitely come back! Gorgeous spot.

Ideal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Roomy, secluded, close to everything - a GREAT value! Not to detract from the location, but just be aware that this is a BAD tick season, so keep your bug repellent handy.

My husband and I got to stay here for our second honeymoon.

Lucy and John thought of everything.

So much thought has been put into the comfort of the first here.

The property is beautiful and full of wildlife.

The apartment is on a second floor so it's like vacationing in a tree house.

We love bird watching and this was the perfect place to do it.

Location is great too. Right in the middle of several great towns.

We just can't say enough about it.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The place was well equipped. It was very private and close to all kinds of outdoor activities. But our favorite thing was exploring the beach and looking at the stars from the deck.

This will be our first choice if we get the chance to visit Maine again.

Simply Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a return trip to the Ashgrove Farm apartment. Returning tells you everything you wondered about, or at least refreshes some details. The privacy, the deck, the walk to the shore, the produce, the gracious hosts...all combine to make for another wonderful retreat.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying here for nine nights. The apartment is on the second floor over a garage where John stores his tractor. It is large with a great kitchen to work in, a sleeping area set aside from the main living area and a large "living room" with plush comfortable chairs, lots of windows, a large porch, a stereo amplifier, television, DVD player (and DVD's) and plenty of lighting. The bed is very comfortable, there were extra blankets available and there were a lot of small items that came in handy. If you come during the right time of the year you get to pick whatever you want from their farm market at no extra cost. What is really nice is the quiet. The one apartment is all there is to rent out and the only other house on the long lane leading towards the water is John & Lucy's house and even that is set pretty far away. So you have real privacy. The television is for watching DVD's or streaming from your computer, there is no on-air reception. The bathroom is functional but just a little weird with a shower and toilet in one small area, then a bar-sized sink in an adjoining area that closes off for privacy. Lots of hot water and lots of storage for a bathroom. There is a dishwasher (that I never used), a microwave and plenty of pots, pans, dishes, cups and utensils. The walk to the beach takes six or seven minutes at most - once you're there it is very, very private. Rocky of course (this is Maine) but there will be two chairs waiting for you and more that you can carry down if you like. We can't recommend this place highly enough.
