Located in Camden, this vacation home is on a lake. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Merryspring Park and Camden Harbor Park and Amphitheatre, while Camden Opera House and Center for Maine Contemporary Art are cultural highlights. Our guests appreciate the property's location for the sightseeing.
If it wasn't for some glaring issues, we would have given this property four stars. The setting is beautiful and the view from inside the house is wonderful. There is a ton of space - plenty for 8-10 people without feeling crammed. It is really close to Camden proper, groceries, restaurants, etc. Unfortunately, there were some major disappointments for us. First, the owner advertises his house as having air conditioning. That is absolutely ridiculous. The house is huge with two floors and there are only two tiny room air conditioners in 2 of the 4 bedrooms. The other two bedrooms have no AC. Moreover, the entire living area of the house is totally unairconditioned. It was in 80-100 degrees outside all week and over 80 degrees and humid inside. We looked at a ton of houses and there were other houses just as nice WITH AIR CONDITIONING for the same price. On top of that, we asked the owner if we could bring 2 extra people so that our friends and us could both bring our 3-6 year old kids. He charged us an additional $500 just for the two extra people over 8. What did we get for this? Absolutely nothing. There wasn't enough toilet paper or paper towels. We had to buy more. He didn't put an AC unit in the other rooms. No inflatable mattress for the extra people. A few other less major items were also not nearly as nice as we've experienced in other rentals. First, this house is on a pond. That is the point of staying at this house. And yet there are only a couple kayaks and a canoe. There were no other water toys for the kids. Usually there are boogie boards, stand up paddle boards, inflatables, water platforms, etc. The house is horribly provisioned. There are virtually no basic necessities like seasonings, soap, shampoo, etc. We had to buy everything we needed. The water downstairs smells horrible (which includes both the water in the laundry, the kitchen and the extra bathroom). We kept the door closed to the bathroom, bought water to drink and used a lot of dryer sheets. Not really the relaxing setting we had envisioned. So, our recommendation: if you are traveling with only 2-4 people who will stay in just 2 bedrooms, this is pretty good but expensive for what you get. If you have any more than 2-4 people, you can probably do way better somewhere else.
