The locals say that Camden, Maine is the place where heaven meets earth, and nowhere is that more true than on Camden's Lake Megunticook. To see this classic New England town and its picture-perfect lake is to fall in love.
Just two miles from downtown Camden, this newly restored lakeside cottage combines the best of classic Maine camp architecture with a luxurious twist. The owners took a historic 4-bedroom 'camp' and completed a top-to-bottom renovation featuring a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops, three plasma televisions, high-speed wireless Internet access and a stunning sun-drenched master bedroom/bathroom fronting the lake.
The location - with its views of Megunticook's many islands and nearby Maiden's Cliff -- can not be beat. The property's three kayaks are ideal for exploring the lake's scenic, historic shoreline, where most cottages date to the turn of the century. The brand new oversized dock features two log benches where parents can relax while watching their children play in the water.
The owners have furnished their home with great care. They've combined uniquely Maine items -- a set of log bunk beds and vintage oil paintings by coastal artists -- with antique furniture and comfortable upholstered pieces.
The home features a king-size master site, a guest room with queen bed, a room with log bunk beds, a room with two twin beds and a den with pullout full-size sleeper. There are dark, wide-plank floors throughout, bleached pine paneling and a standout window seat -- perfect for an afternoon nap. The picnic table and Adirondack chairs on the lower deck are natural spots from which to enjoy a lobster feast or blueberry pancakes, while the upper deck affords a private, romantic retreat.
For outdoor enthusiasts, there's no better spot to kayak, fish, swim, waterski, wakeboard or tube than Camden's Lake Megunticook. The nearby Camden Hills are perfect for hiking and enjoying scenic views.
With some of Maine's finest restaurants, art galleries and antique shops just five minutes away, this cottage is ideally situated. Camden is the perfect, central location for day trips to picturesque neighboring towns and islands.
