About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Situated on a quiet, residential street this adorably updated, circa 1900 farmhouse is just a FIVE MINUTE WALK TO DOWNTOWN CAMDEN and its picturesque harbor. Bright and cheery, the two bedroom home offers comfortable furnishings and everything you need in your 'home-away-from-home' including a deck and private brick patio for outdoor dining and relaxing. The interior features restored wide plank pine floors upstairs and an ANTIQUE CLAW TUB, as well as a shower, in the second floor bathroom. NEW SIMMONS BEAUTY REST PLUSH MATTRESS SET in Master Bedroom (summer 2010)! Downstairs there is a well stocked full kitchen with NEW CORIAN countertops, separate sunny eating area seating six, a spacious family room and separate living/TV room with 32' FLAT SCREEN TV which can be closed off via french doors from the rest of the house.

Camden is a lovely coastal town offering something for everyone. Enjoy views of MOUNT BATTIE from the front stoop or take a 30 minute moderate hike to the summit from the TRAIL HEAD at the AT THE TOP OF THE STREET. Those less adventuresome can drive to the top via the Mount Battie State Park entrance. Either way the reward is a marvelous view of the harbor, bay, and outlying islands. Bald Rock Trail in Camden Hills State Park was listed as one of the world's most scenic walks (Departures, Adam H Graham, Mar/Apr 2012)

If you would rather not cook your own lobsters in our convenient outdoor propane lobster and shellfish pot, take a walk to the wharf for a lobster feast at Bayview Lobster, Inc., a cup of delicious New England chowder at Cappy's or venture where the locals hang out at Cuzzy's and have a Maine micro-brew beer. You may also want to reserve a spot on one of the various wooden sailing schooners for a tour of Penobscot Bay or learn to kayak with Maine Sports Kayak Tours. Town events include the Camden Food and Wine Festival in June, Country Roads Artist & Artisans Tour in September, and Christmas By the Sea early December. Camden also offers a wide variety of restaurants, gourmet food and wine purveyors and unique shops where you can find upscale clothing, local pottery/art, antiques, and more.

WONDERFULLY LOCATED IN MIDCOAST MAINE, Camden is a great stepping stone from which to discover the pleasures of the seacoast as well as an array of exciting day trips to the north and south. Rivers and lakes abound for fishing and nearby towns and cities provide history and cultural amenities. You may want to experience the ANNUAL MAINE LOBSTER FESTIVAL IN ROCKLAND every August(20 minute drive), Arts in the Park in Belfast (18 mi.), and the Union State Fair and Maine Wild Blueberry Festival in Union (13 mi.). This is a real Maine agricultural fair and one of the oldest fairs in Maine.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My husband, Keith, grew up on the coast of Maine, therefore it was inevitable we would eventually own a house in Maine--although we live and work in Florida! We love our time in Camden and believe anyone who visits will also fall in love with the area. If you love nature, hiking, kayaking, sailing--or just enjoying the beautiful northeast climate and scenery--we urge you to spend some time in Camden and surrounding midcoast Maine! -Michelle & Keith
