We hosted a large group for my husband's 50th bday in Camden. People came from all over the country - eleven stayed in the house and more attended the lobster bake we had in the backyard of this wonderful house. First, the house is designed for a group. Everyone can spread out or be together. Using the studio, eleven fit perfectly with everyone having their own bed and no one on pull-out couches. It is hard to tell from the pictures the scale of the backyard. It is enormous. We spent most of our time on the deck, which is perfect for entertaining. We had a birthday party, but I could see a wedding or other events here. The location of the house was also terrific - a block from the water and a small beach, a short walk into town with shops, cafes, and the beautiful harbor. There was plenty to do in the region, no matter one's tastes - hiking, great food, even a huge TV for those watching the Olympics. Last, the owner's hospitality exceeded expectations by answering our many questions and taking care of our every need. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in the mid-coast region. Thank you so much for everything!
