About Kate Cohen

I grew up in Camden on Bay View Street, and was lucky enough to return with my husband to raise our four children in Maine. My husband is a Real Estate Broker here in town and we are both very active in our community. Camden is a truly special spot and we believe whether this is your first visit or your 100th, it won't be your last! We work very hard to make your stay enjoyable, we are accessible…you may run into us at Boyton Mckay or having a snack on the deck of the Waterfront. We hope to see you soon!

Kate Cohen purchased this house in 2001

Why Kate Cohen chose Camden

Situated on one of Camden's premier streets, just up from the Camden Yacht Club. Bay View Cottage is an easy walk to town and to the beach, just up from the playground at Montessori school and the YMCA. The house has a wonderful feel and with all the updates it is sure to become a favorite with visitors.

What makes this house unique

Bay View Cottage has a great front porch! Come sit a while and let the magic of Camden take over.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The memories are priceless and the house was absolutely perfect - loved the old charm with the comfy updates and all the amenities that you provided to make our visit so totally enjoyable. The family loved the proximity to town, adored the beach, the granddaughters found their 3rd floor space really really special - and all the little side trips to Graffam Bros. for lobster rolls and Owls Head General Store for the winning burger -these two places along with your house will hopefully bring us all back again. but really really I have to say, you provided for us as guests in a way that far exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in many rental homes but none can compare to all the thoughtfulness you put into providing everything to make our visit so exceptional.

Beautiful home, perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 93 Bayview for a week this July. The house was perfect for our extended family and the location can't be beat - steps from town and Laite Beach.

The house exceeded our expectations. We would come again!

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfected located. We brought bikes but hardly used them as walking to town and the beach was a breeze. The porch and kitchen were wonderful. There was an abundance of room--storage, beds, etc. Kate the owner was extremely responsive to questions and concerns. We fell in love with Camden and the surrounding area.

This house had everything that we needed and more. Perfectly located; just a quick walk to town.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious kitchen and every cupboard labeled. We were very fortunate to have warm evenings this far into fall to enjoy the porch. Cozy, comfortable and extremely clean. We will be renting this gem again!

The perfect summer pad!

  • 5 of 5

I had an incredible time in Camden and so much of that was due to picking the right pad - this one - for my stay which included a week with family, short visits with friends and time for just me and my dog. I must say that my dog would write his own review noting that being 1 block from a park and a dog-friendly beach is his idea of the perfect pad. The house is great and well-kept, including service request as needed (the owners also arrange for cleaning service on the weekends!) and includes all the supplies one could need for making it a wonderful summer retreat. I enjoyed leaving all the windows open and the fans on, so not having AC was a non-issue even on the hottest of Maine summer days. The front porch and kitchen are favorite hang spots and the kitchen is exceptional whether for serving take out, bbq or playing cards and drinking wine. I highly recommend this place!

Spacious home with a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Hi Kate. Sorry we haven't written our review sooner. Have had lots of company and have moved to a smaller house in Camden to enjoy the rest of our stay.

The house on Bay View was very spacious. The kitchen was the best equipped of any we've ever rented. We appreciated your quick response regarding the bathroom doors. The location was great,. The children could walk to Laite Beach. Downtown and all it's attractions was an easy walk. I do have several suggestions . Air conditioners in the bedrooms would provide relief from the heat. A second tv in a bedroom would allow children to watch their programs while the adults used the one in the family room.

An added bonus was meeting Mark, the neighbor next door. He was a pleasure to visit with.

Love this house. 7 min walk to downtown. Beautifully decorated, and every need thought of. Giant kitchen, awesome porch, and 3 min walk to the beach. Will be back.
