The jewel of posh Maine coastal living

Hugging the western shores of Penobscot Bay, this well-heeled seaside village is the picture-perfect image of New England coastal living. While the year round population is only about 5,000, those numbers more than triple in the warm summer months thanks to an influx of well-to-do visitors from the big cities in the Northeast. Step out of a Camden vacation rental and you just might feel like you're on a movie set, thanks to the picturesque harbor, Victorian B&Bs, and upscale shops and restaurants. The bay's clear blue waters and the scenic lighthouses peppering the coast complete the picture.

Things to do

From opera to the outdoors, Camden has it all

Penobscot Bay is Camden's biggest attraction, with other options for prime viewing including Barrett's Cove and Mount Megunticook, the highest point on the Atlantic coast. For year round outdoor fun, head to the Camden Snow Bowl, which offers everything from skiing and tobogganing in the winter, to biking and kayaking in the summer. A Camden vacation rental also puts you in the heart of one of Maine's highest concentrations of lighthouses, including the historic Owls Head lighthouse. Culture vultures won't want to miss the chance to take in a performance at the Camden Opera House.

Activities

Take to the water in a land of lighthouses

Cruise the waters of Penobscot Bay in luxury on a yacht from Camden Yacht Club, or opt for a ferry to the nearby islands to take in the wildlife. If you prefer to be on solid ground, there's no shortage of outdoor activities, from hiking, to mountain biking, to saltwater pier fishing. A centrally located Camden vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of Camden Hills State Park, with 30 miles of trails and breathtaking views from the top of Mount Battle. For a taste of classic New England, explore the locally owned shops or one of the 18 lighthouses within 40 miles of the town.

Weather

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

With more than double the national average when it comes to snowfall, there's plenty of the white stuff to make for some top-notch skiing (and some posh apres-ski to boot). Winters are cold and windy, with temperatures from December through March well below freezing, so bring a cozy sweater and plan to curl up by the fire. Summers are mild, with highs from June to September rarely topping the 70s, making for comfortable days exploring the bay and surrounding wildlife (though you might want to pack layers just in case).

Natural features

Where the mountains meet the sea

The rocky Maine coast on either side of Camden makes for dramatic views of scenic Penobscot Bay, with the highest points on the Atlantic seaboard dropping rapidly to meet the crashing ocean waves. Countless hiking trails will take you to hidden ponds, forests, and towering cliffs offering prime ocean views. Stop and smell the flowers at Merryspring Nature Center, which is home to specialty gardens of herbs, roses, and daylilies, as well as ten nature trails that make the preserve an outdoor lover's paradise. Enjoy the fresh salt air while taking in a stunning sunrise on the coast.
