    About this area


    This resort is located by the ocean and in a walkable area with good shopping. Camden Snow Bowl and Cellardoor Winery are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Merryspring Park and Camden Harbor Park and Amphitheatre. Our guests love the resort's central location.

    About this property

    Camden "garden Cottage" - Colorful in Aug., Sep., Oct.!

    Family-friendly resort in Camden with outdoor tennis court
    "As cozy as a cottage and as spacious as a house." Our 9th year. 100+ happy vacation groups of 2+ guests from 28 US States and 2 foreign countries. Many repeat visitors. *** THE SETTING *** "Home Away from Home." *Peaceful* country setting bordered by an extensive woodland and close to the center of town. In a quiet enclave, but this cottage is just a 15 -- 20 walk to downtown and the inner harbor. Open space all around. (NO close neighbors, street corners, or busy traffic closely crowd this cottage, although there is * very occasionally* an event next door. This happens perhaps once a month.) Restful residential neighborhood. Ample indoor space for privacy and to stretch out and relax. Private, off-street driveway and parking for exclusive use of guests. Many colorful informal gardens feature 50+ different flowering trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals on an acre of land, with woods adjacent. Separate screened-in summer house overlooks the gardens and catches the breezes. Owners live next door for easy communication, and love to give personal recommendations. Friendly assistance available at all times. We have a safe, large lawn where the kids can run about. You can keep an eye on them from the balcony/deck, or just enjoy a cup of coffee there in the morning or your own refreshments in the evening. Comfortable indoor open floor plan living and dining space. 2 bedrooms, each w/ a queen and each with its own full bathroom -- all on one floor. Privacy for two couples is assured. Washer and drier is on the living floor, not in the basement. Second and 3rd bedrooms are great for traveling companions or your visiting guests. Usual occupancy is 2, 3, or 4. A 5th guest can be accommodated for a $100 additional linens fee. House is 18 years new. Immaculate. We clean extensively between stays, and once a week for extended visits.

      Restful get away!

      David and Paula, They're is not enough I can say to express how wonderful our stay in the cottage was for us. The place is perfect and offers everything needed when you are away from home. In fact it felt like home. Your property is beautiful. Every direction is an exquisite view. We love the care that you have poured into your landscape. Thank you for the personal care you showed us and the thoughtful offer of art supplies to Jo. Your recommendations for food and places to go were spot on though we spent most of or time at the cottage. We do have some perishable items to leave that we hate to throw away. Any suggestions? Thank you for everything! Bill and Joanne

        Lovely cottage in Camden

        The photos do not do justice to his beautiful cottage in Camden. Spacious and sunny, it’s located on a quiet street moments from downtown Camden. David is an artist and master gardener. The grounds are like a mini botanical garden and there are fresh flowers on the windowsill. The cottage is well maintained and spotlessly clean. It’s also well equipped, with everything you need in the kitchen, bath and laundry. We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay and could not have been more comfortable. A return trip is already being planned.

        5/5 Excellent

          Nice size, comfort, surroundings and location

          Friendly owners met us on arrival and toured us through the house and answered all our questions. We had a great stay using this cottage as our base to tour the coast.

          5/5 Excellent

            Wonderful cottage!

            What a lovely cottage, hosts, and location! David could not be more helpful and welcoming. The garden is glorious. Lovely location for walking to Camden (15 min walk, if that), and for exploring mid-coastal Maine. We had a wonderful stay, and hope to return! The house is completely equipped, and comfy.

            5/5 Excellent
