About the property

Oceanfront Home with Sweeping Views of Bay, Private Beach, minutes from Camden

Gaze at the water from almost every room in this tastefully designed & comfortably furnished home on the banks of Penobscot Bay central to both Camden and Belfast. The home is sun-drenched with large windows facing the ocean and glorious light all day long. open layout is functional and maximizes the views from the kitchen, dining room, sitting area & living room -- all flowing together from space to space. This is an exceptional home to entertain in and it can accommodate a large group or family effortlessly and in style. A gently sloping & grassy back yard leads to a classic Maine beach with stunning ledge outcroppings & granite boulders. A waterside fire pit and picnic table offer a great spot to enjoy the day or night. Two rare sand beach areas are just a few hundred yards to the north or south and offer endless opportunity for beach combing and ocean exploring Maine style.

The Main House

Main house consists of 3 bedrooms on 2nd floor including the master suite with shower & soaking tub. The master bedroom is spacious and has broad views up and down the bay. A full bath with double sinks services the other upstairs bedrooms and a full laundry room is also located on the 2nd floor. The 1st floor features a large kitchen with granite counters & island and professional 6 burner stove and griddle & stainless appliances. The dining room offers seating for 10 + and is open to the kitchen & living room and framed by multiple bay windows with panoramic ocean views. The comfortable living room offers plenty of seating for watching a game or movie and has views to the ocean as well. A cozy sitting area with woodstove & lovely views offers additional space for relaxing. A 4th bedroom is also located on the 1st floor. A bathroom with shower & mudroom/entry, and 3-car garage round out the 1st floor. The finished basement also offers additional bedroom space for children or young adults and also features a bath with shower providing a 5th bedroom in the main house as necessary.

The Loft Apartment

A privately situated loft apartment over the garage offers spectacular views in a rustic yet contemporary setting. Vaulted ceilings with pine boards, massive fir beams & exquisite red birch floors create a stunning loft like living space. Kitchen with stainless appliances, living room area with cozy gas stove, pleasant bedroom with carpet, bath with shower & laundry, kitchen & additional loft area for kids provides a spacious and very unique living experience. A private porch area looks out over the bay and islands with almost 180 degree vistas. A staircase connects directly to the kitchen area of the main house thus offering a direct connection while also allowing for more privacy in the living & bedroom areas.

Beach Side Bungalow

Literally just feet from the ocean sits a waterside cabin with panoramic views of the bay and islands from a wall of windows. Rustic & handsome with spruce timbers & pine floors, queen bed nook, chaise lounge, rocking chairs & driftwood vibe.... you feel like you're on a boat you're so close to the water! Battery lamps & delightful outhouse in the woods! This is "glamping" at its finest. Or simply have cocktail hour on your private beachfront bungalow overlooking the wild Maine coast. A magical spot that is truly special.

Outside Space, Yard & Beach

The home is surrounded by a lush grassy yard, shrubs and some woods yet the feel is essentially wide open with lots of sunlight and views everywhere. A large back deck offers outside eating and sitting areas as well as a 6-person hot tub over looking the ocean. The beach is 200 feet from the home and is easily accessible down the gently sloping lawn. A neat old fish house covered with lobster buoys sits right on the edge of the ocean and houses kayaks, beach chairs, firewood, and all the items one needs to enjoy a Maine summer on the ocean. A local paddleboard outfitter will gladly guide you on a tour of the nearby coast right from you own beach!

About Kate Cohen

I grew up in Camden, just a few miles down the road from here 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. This area 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 in town at Boyton Mckay or having a snack on the deck of the Waterfront. We hope to see you soon!

A Magical Maine House on the Coast

  • 5 of 5

Grandparents, parents, and kids had a magical stay in Lincolnville ME thanks to this perfect beach house. We enjoyed our comfortable, make-yourself-at-home house and the wonderful Camden-Lincolnville Beach area. From the Tonka trucks and swing set for 2-year-old Abraham to examining mussels and snails and collecting treasures on the beach for Abe and 4-year-old Emaline to playing volleyball at the park next door, to our lobster feast, to hiking up mountains, kayaking, swimming in the ocean or at Megunticook Lake, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. We also took excursions into Camden for ice cream and gifts, into Rockport for the Wyeth Museum, and to Appleton Creamery for goat cheese. Bumping everything up a notch was soaking in the hot tub, taking turns sleeping in the boat house, and the amazing view--not to mention Tony Award-worthy talent shows by our teenaged girls. Happy memories were made in this wonderful house on the Maine Coast!!

Very nice 6 bedroom property on the water with a great view. Conveniently located to midcoast Maine.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the last two years and will be coming back next year. Ideal for extended families with children. Great views and conveniently located. This is a six bedroom property with plenty of room. The sea shack on the water was completely redone and is in effect another bedroom. The apartment over the garage is great for the grandparents with its own kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer and deck with a view of the water. There is easy access to the water and a sand beach is a few hundred yards away.The owner is responsive and easy to deal with.

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 family members stay for a week and there was room for twice as many! My husband and I especially enjoyed sleeping in the beach cottage; absolute peace listening to the waves and feeling the breeze from the bay. The beach access is wonderful and it is a short walk to a sandy portion with wonderful tide pools for exploring at low tide. This was a favorite activity for kids and adults alike! The home is well stocked with high quality kitchen items and plenty of linens. The knives could use a sharpen and some more kitchen towels would have helped us keep up with the dishes, but those are only very minor suggestions for improvement. We also really appreciated the bins for our recycling needs and plenty of wood for campfires. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone. We hope to return again!

Beautiful home, beautiful coastline!

  • 5 of 5

Five lifetime friends recently stayed at Kate's home to celebrate our 60th birthdays. The house is huge! Each of us had a lovely room, two of the rooms are like separate apartments! The ocean view is everywhere. The weather was not good during our stay but we enjoyed the hot tub, had happy hour in the adorable bungalow right at the ocean's edge, visited a nearby winery, strolled in Camden, read our books and relaxed! Can't even imagine how wonderful it would be in summer. The house is clean and welcoming! Highly recommend.

An excellent property for extended family with young children or grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

Two week rental in August 2017. This is a very nice property with plenty of room and great views of the bay. The kitchen, living and dining areas are spacious and well laid out. The property has a completely renovated sea shack/cabin on the water that can serve as a bedroom (my son and daughter-in-law slept in it for a week). There is an apartment over the garage with access to the house that was perfect for my wife and I (the grandparents). It has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living area and its own deck. The property has great access to the beach, including a sand beach that is close by. The yard is large and provides a good place for children to play. The location is great for us providing easy access to Camden, Rockland, Rockport, and Belfast. Bar Harbor and Acadia are also not that far. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and silverware. We liked the property so much that we have rented it for two weeks next year.

Perfect Ocean Front Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week at this great home. We had a large extended family that required at least 5 to 6 separate sleeping areas and this home met the need plus more. It ha an absolutely huge and great grass yard leading down to the water. At the water front is a beautiful traditional Maine rock ocean front as well as the converted shack that we renamed "The Bungalow" during our stay. Someone slept in it every night of our stay and we often hung there or had naps in it.

The house is large, clean, and very open between the kitchen, eating area, and family room. We had 3 young children in our group and they spent almost all their time in the backyard that had a swing set, tire swing, lots of toys, and plenty of space to run around.

We have been renting homes on Maine and Cape Cod for years and this is one of the best.
