About the property

3 B/r, 2 1/2 Bath, With Mountain & Water Views From All Windows

A new kitchen opens to the dinning area with windows and sliders filling the space with light and ocean air. Just one step down is a large bluestone patio with fieldstone sitting wall and a gas grill.

This overlooks the perfect yard for croquet or catch. From the patio you can walk up to the 2nd floor deck. This runs the length of the house giving 2 of the 3 bedrooms egress to the upper seating area where in the sun or under an awning you can spend the day. Don't forget your binoculars.

The third floor has a bonus room where the views open up even further to the mountains and bay. With a fridge and 1/2 bath up there you may never come down.

Cable TV and wireless are included so you can still be connected. You can end the day with a movie in our large viewing room and stroll the 300 feet to the 100 foot long dock where you can enjoy a starry night.

About Jim

There are few properties that are this close to town, have a nice yard with some shade trees and have some views of the bay and the entrance to the harbor. Though we share a property line with the boatyard we find that the occasional boat parked out back adds to the seaside ambiance. Our views from the 2nd and third floor decks look over any boats in the lot and are represented well in the photos.

Jim purchased this house in 1986

Why Jim chose Camden

The best place to vacation and bring the kids. With the water and the mountains we always had plenty to do.

What makes this house unique

There are so many areas of this home and town to suit the variety of guests that we have had over the years. Everyone finds that there is aspect that they truly enjoy

My husband and I rented this house for a month and found it to be clean, well maintained and well equipped with everything you could possibly need in a home. We loved the proximity to town and enjoyed the scenic walk to the harbor, shops and restaurants. We traveled extensively in this gorgeous state and loved coming back to this centrally located town of Camden. The views from the patios are beautiful and I loved watching all the boats coming in and out. The new restaurant Rumbline is just a hop and a skip down below this house and has very good food and outdoor seating right on the waterfront! So convenient! Jim and Sherri are exceptionality nice folks to work with! Our children and grandchildren came to visit and we had plenty of room for all! Great house in a great location with great views!!!

!!!Wow, a pitching wedge from the ocean!!!

  • 5 of 5

This large and beautiful house has been completely updated. Hardwood floors, beautiful countertops, woodstove, balcony's and patios overlooking the ocean. This house has ample room for large families or groups. Jim and Sherri were great and made us feel more than comfortable. Each couple in our group had our own room and there were plenty of bathrooms and showers to go around. It was only about a 5 to 7 minute walk to downtown through a very nice neighborhood with well-kept houses. There is so much to do and see in the area including a beautiful hike up Mount Battie. There is a boat landing and rocky beach right around the corner from the house. I could hit a pitching wedge from the backyard right into the ocean! I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a clean and reputable rental for a great summer vacation.

Comfortable, clean property with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this beautiful Camden home. It was equipped with everything we could possibly need for our stay and the owners could not have been more helpful. It was so nice to stroll up to the town and then down to the sea, we could walk everywhere!

It housed 6 adults comfortably and we especially enjoyed grilling on the deck with a view of the harbor.

We will definitely plan a return trip!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My in-laws and I spent a week here exploring Camden and the surrounding towns. Jim and his wife keep a beautiful, clean and well-appointment home that was perfect for our vacation with two toddlers. We had enough room that we could all do our own things without getting in each others' way but also come together for dinner or to play badminton or just relax in the backyard. There's a lovely deck on the mastersuite and an even better view from the third floor deck of the marina and the boats coming in. The home is on a quiet street and walking distance to town.

The two kids enjoyed playing in the backyard and the house is open enough that we could keep an eye on them without worrying too much about anyone getting hurt :)

The home is lovely and spacious and everything is clean and easy to use. The owners left detailed instructions for dealing with any quirks and letting us know the location for just about anything we could possibly need. We had many dinners at home because it's easier than coordinating bedtimes/food/tiredness of a four year old and an 18-month-old, but also had the chance to explore Mt. Battie (my husband actually walked over to one of the trails one morning; the rest of us drove up to the top), take a lobster boat tour, drive down to Owl's Head, Rockport, Rockville and up to Belfast and Lincolnville and see the sights around there. The entire area is truly beautiful and this was the perfect homebase to see it all, though it was also nice to just sit on a deck with a cup of coffee and watch the boats. We are definitely coming back! Thank you Jim & Sheri!

Great location, well equipped, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this home with friends of ours. Owner, Jim Deignan, was great to work with and he and his wife have obviously put a lot of effort into maintaining their home and updating it. We love to cook and found the kitchen to be very well equipped and well organized. The weather was beautiful so we spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the views. The house backs directly up to the marina parking lot but we could also see the Bay from the patio. The views from the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies were wonderful! We look forward to returning to Camden and to this comfortable home.

Our first visit to Maine will not be our last because of this property. This home is comfortable, and the well-equipped kitchen provided us with everything necessary to make meals for a large group. It is obvious this home is loved from the small details like a book on Maine lingo to the festive lights ready to be lit for an evening dinner outside.

Camden is located in the mid-coast of Maine where the mountains meet the sea. This village offers every amenity you would want on vacation. From fine dinning to small pubs by the harbor. Driving or hiking to the top of Mt Battie. Dozens of shops for crafts to snacks line the streets around a harbor where historic sailing schooners still ply the waters. A library and parks open up the head of the harbor with grand views. Tour of the expansive harbor by kayak, schooner, or lobster boat. Swim or fish in the nearby lake or golf at some of the best spots on the east coast. Or you can grab a coffee and sit on a harbor bench and watch the boats and people come and go.
