One-level Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)
My husband, Erik, and I, moved to Camden from Florida in 2016. Immediately, we fell in love with Camden and the beautiful surrounding area, so much so that we decided to make the life-changing decision to relocate our family here. Erik retired from the US Air Force, so the move here really has been a lifestyle change as well as a life-changing one. I am British and Camden really offers a home-from-home "English" feel. The history of our house is an interesting one - the previous owners bought the house in 1996. It had been empty and neglected for the previous three years before that. Our whole home, which we call 'Capt Taylor', had been originally built by a sea captain in 1903 and it has now been lovingly restored into a beautiful family home. 'Capt Smith' is the name given to our vacation rental apartment.
Jen purchased this Apartment in 1996
Why Jen chose Camden
The proximity to town and its amenities was one of the major reasons for choosing to buy this house. Camden is a bustling little town with lots of things going on all year. We want our home to feel like your home while you're here.
What makes this Apartment unique
This a 'home-away-from-home' place to stay! You'll love a leisurely walk to the harbor for breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of Camden's many fine restaurants, a sunset cruise on a schooner and afterwards relaxing on your front porch with a glass of wine. For those looking for a more energetic vacation, we have Mt Battie on our doorstep with great hiking trails. And not having to drive and find somewhere to park is truly a great benefit.

We very much liked our home vacation rental. I sat in the living room in the morning with the sun coming through the stained glass windows. The whole house was really nice. We enjoyed walking to town and exploring the area. We would love to go back again. It was wonderful. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful.
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us! Here’s to next time! Best wishes to you both!
Jen and Erik have created a wonderful place to stay while visiting Camden Maine. The VRBO nicknamed Captain Smith is spacious, very clean, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need for a one week stay, and the living room is a great place to relax after a day of exploring the area. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundry room are all very well appointed.
Jen provided great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. If you like hiking moderate to difficult hikes, the Mount Battie trail is a great hike you can take right from Captain Smith without driving. Also, we walked everywhere around Camden from Captain Smith without worrying about driving and finding a parking space. It’s that close, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Camden.
Jen and Erik are wonderful hosts and we want to thank them very much for our wonderful one week stay at Captain Smith! We look forward to our next stay sometime soon!
Thank you so much Leonard. It was a pleasure to have you be our guests and we warmly welcome you back anytime! Enjoy the rest of your trip in Vacationland!
Great host and as always we love staying at this property, walking distance to town and harbour.
Awesome.....great kitchen to prepare home cook meals for family when on vacation. Very clean and hospitable hosts (Jen and Eric). As always, thanks for making this property our home away from home.
Thank you Sarah! It was lovely to meet you and your family. Look forward to seeing you again soon ~ Jen

Great Week in Camden
The owners have created a top-notch rental property. Accommodations were so complete, we were left wanting nothing. The home is tastefully decorated and very, very comfortable. The location is perfect ... within walking distance to all downtown activity. The owners are friendly and committed to making great vacation memories for their guests. If we visit Camden again, this will be our choice for accommodations.
Thank you for your kind comments. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us! See you again soon!
What a wonderful location and owner. Our family of two grandparents, two parents, and two little ones had a fabulous time. The property is incredibly well appointed and perfect for our needs.
Thank you for your kind comments. It’s really good to know that we’re meeting the expectations of our guests. Thank you for leaving Capt Smith in such good order on your departure. We look forward to seeing you again here in Camden.
We are located within a very short walk to Camden Harbor. Many schooners available for day sailing trips, sunset cruises and overnight trips as well. Also kayak rental/tours available as well as wildlife sightseeing. Lots of wonderful restaurants and unique shops. Don't forget to check out our fantastic libraryl! Take a hike (or drive) up Mt. Battie...a view not to be missed!!! And for those needing even more of a workout, the local YMCA is only 1.3 miles away.
