    About this property

    Waterfront on the Megunticook River, Camden, Maine

    Riverfront cottage with kitchen and patio
    River's Edge is a stylish, up to date Camden Maine cabin with a floating dock for swimming, sunning & fishing. The river is crystal clear & clean. The neighborhood is quiet, woodsy & full of nature. Half the property is woods with 500' of river front. There's a feeling of seclusion, yet other houses are nearby. You'll find great views of the water & mountains & enjoy elegant & functional antiques in fine condition. River's Edge was built in 1970 & is comfortable & relaxing. White-washed antique barn board brightens the central living area. High ceilings throughout make the cottage light & airy. It's owned by an artist & maintained by her energetic handy man. At times, River's Edge is owner occupied & is then given the careful attention & feeling of 'home' you'll find & enjoy. Amenities include bed linens, plenty of fluffy towels, telephone, toaster, microwave oven, coffee maker, lobster pot, dishes/utensils, outdoor gas BBQ grill, cable TV, DVD player, high speed WiFi Internet access for your computer. A Comfortable, Peaceful Setting: River's Edge is a retreat for the artist, writer & poet in you--a cozy vacation home on the Megunticook River with views of lovely Mount Battie. To your left, up river, is a dam that forms Lake Megunticook. About two miles down river is another dam, the Seabright, which creates this most peaceful section of river for your enjoyment. You will find it perfect for swimming, floating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing or sunning on its banks. It is a rare quiet spot without the motor boats, water skiing or jet skis you may like to enjoy on the Lake, which are accessible just around the corner. River's Edge has a floating dock, shared with a friendly neighbor, on the beautiful river & nearly 500' of shoreline. Half the property is woodsy. Ceiling & floor fans, monitor & electric heaters. Weekly maid service is provided. You may request more frequent maid service for an extra charge. Grocery provisioning in advance or mid-week. Babysitting available. Well behaved PETS are welcome. An Artist's Well-loved Cabin: River's Edge was built in 1970 as a family summer place, situated on land that was once a pasture serving the farm house which still stands across the street. Sheep grazed here, an apple orchard bloomed & a small barn stood near the road. When the cottage was built, the old barn's original wide pine siding was used inside the living room. The cottage is comfortable & relaxing. Now white-washed, the antique barn board brightens the central living area. High ceilings throughout make it light & airy. River’s Edge is owned by an artist & maintained by her energetic handy man. The home is well equipped for the comfort of up to 4 adults. You will find 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed, another with a twin set. The bathroom has a tub, shower, plenty of hot water & fluffy towels. The kitchen is roomy & all set with everything you need for cooking up a storm, including a large, vintage, restored refrigerator, new gas range & oven & new microwave. There is a large gas grill just outside. Summer in Camden, Maine: There is a large color TV with cable & DVD player. Several shops in Camden rent current & classic films on DVD. The sectional sofa was added in 2006 and is all ready & comfortable for afternoon napping. Or, you could nod off on a lounge chair down on the floating dock. River's Edge is a place to be close to nature. The wildflowers have a timing and cycle all their own. Lupine are followed by Day Lilies, Queen Anne's Lace, then Daisies in many varieties, Black eyed Susans, Goldenrod, and many more which you can have fun identifying. There are wildflower reference books at the house; enjoy & use them on your walks. The wildflowers attract droves of butterflies & hummingbirds. You'll see Swallowtail & Monarch, as well as others more exotic & rare. See NOTES section under RATES for detailed cancellation policy.

        Relaxing time by the water

        My husband and I had a very relaxing stay. The cottage was comfy and the eclectic feel of the decor was welcoming and interesting.

        5/5 Excellent

          A lovely stay on the Megunticook River

          My family from England had a wonderful time. The cottage was just the right size for the four of them and was perfectly equipped. The boys loved being on the water. Connie was wonderful and accommodating!

          4/5 Good

            Magical Setting

            At first, I thought the price was a bit high but when I saw the setting I immediately knew it was worth every penny. The Megunticook River has a dam at each end with a 24-hour very slow flow of fresh water. It was such a perfect temperature and we were never aware of any current. On the big Megunticook lake (which flows into this "river"), there are motor boats and a public beach that can get crowded. That water is a bit cooler too... On the river, only canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and of course, swimmers. And so few! We often had the entire water to ourselves. The dock was a lovely place to lounge. The cottage is not updated nor glamorous and has old furnishings but we had everything we needed and it was clean. Another amazing thing about this rental is that you are in a magical, serene place yet only a mere 1.5 miles to the Camden harbor! So close yet a world away. We took a 3-minute drive every day to get ice cream! The lake rentals are much farther out. I only found two vacay rentals on the Megunticook River and we are so happy it was available. It is the best place to stay in the Camden area. We would go back for sure!
