About the Property

5 BR Camp Built In 1880 and inhabited by the Babb family for five generations

As featured in Conde Nast's Bon Appetit magazine (August, 2016), the Babb Camp was built in 1880 and retains most of its original features. On Megunticook Lake, the largest freshwater body in the mid-coast region, the camp includes 5 bedrooms, a separate kitchen, combined dining room and living room, a separate TV room, and, outside, a large family porch and immediate lakefront access. It is only 3 miles from the charms of the ocean-front town of Camden, with its many wonderful restaurants and shops, as well as a variety of opportunities to experience Penobscot Bay.
