About Jen

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.

The Captain Smith apartment is ideal for one or two couples. You feel as if you are at your own home in Camden. This was our second stay at CS and it was just as good as the first trip in October of 2015. Very convenient to downtown Camden. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Vehicle parking is great with easy access in and out of the apartment. Although we didn't use it much other than eating a lite breakfast, the kitchen has every thing you have at home.

Camden is the perfect mid-coast location for doing day trips north or south on the coast. We can highly recommend the Captain Smith apartment. Oh! the weather was ideal so we got to enjoy morning coffee and afternoon drinks on the porch.

Lovely property centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Our ladies group used this apt as homebase for our daily excursions north and south coastally. The kitchen is large with a table in the middle where we visited each evening. Camden is the sweetest little town with manageable traffic. (You get your own parking lot at this property.) We hope to return. 🏘

Well appointed home with added touches to make it special.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our 2nd visit to Captain Smith on Mountain Street! Sitting on the wraparound porch was our favorite spot in the morning for coffee and the late afternoon for cocktails and dinner. Jen and Eric were very accommodating and made arrangements to have lobsters delivered along with a steamer for a true Maine experience!!'

We stayed at Captain Smith for a girls weekend in Oct, 2016. It was fabulous. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, and plenty of room for 5 women. The kitchen was great. Living room with fireplace was lovely as it was cold in the evenings. The wrap around porch is a great place to have coffee in the morning or drinks in afternoon. Location was great and a short walk to town or longer walk to State Park. The owners were fabulous and very helpful. Overall a perfect long weekend. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.
