About David and Paula Blanchard
When we moved to this beautiful spot 30 years ago we began developing its gardens and landscape for beauty and enjoyment. The gardens are now reaching maturity and we delight in them every day. We live right next door to the house/cottage (but conveniently out of sight), and this is our only vacation rental. We think of all visitors as our special guests.
David and Paula Blanchard purchased this house in 1990
Why David and Paula Blanchard chose Camden
Our place, while in town, is peaceful and quiet. It is uniquely bordered by a (seldom used) community meeting hall, our lawn and gardens, and a large woodland. Because it is set well back from the street at the end of its own driveway, the cottage affords visitors the chance to enjoy more than an acre of quiet gardens and solitude while still being close to everything. The cottage is nestled in a naturalistic landscape of woods, lawn, trees, shrubs, and abundant flowers.
What makes this house unique
Perfect for two couples to share. Also, a great place for elders or physically impaired, for recuperation, recovery, just plain rest, or convenient mobility. One-floor living, two full bathrooms, extra wide doorways, strategically placed grab rails, entrance ramp, close-in parking all make this uniquely suited for people with special needs.
