About the owner: Welcome to Ocean Express House.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Located adjacent to Camden Hills State Park we love to hike the trails. Walk over to the Cellar Door Winery for wine tasting and scenery. The farmhouse is located just about midway between 4 of our favorites activities. Short drives will take you swimming at Barretts Cove in Megunticook Lake, building sand castles at Lincolnville Beach, feeding the ducks and looking a the windjammers in Camden Harbor, or skipping stones and watching the tides at Ducktrap .
