Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Camden - Woodland, Brookside Apartment

1(or2) Bedrms, 1 Bathrm, Slps 4(or6): see description--additional bedrm option.

Please be prepared to have a delightful stay with us!

or.This lovely apartment has a 2nd floor deck nestled near the top of a large old Dogwood Tree beside a seasonal babbling brook on 4 acres of trees and lawns situated on Route 52, 1.9 miles from downtown Camden, and .7 miles from Barrett Cove Park on Megunticook Lake. Accessed by an outside stairway, this large and very comfortable 2nd and 3rd floor apartment has every thing you'll need for a vacation in this lovely sea-coast town..including a tuned baby grand piano. The 12 x 24 living/dining room has plush new carpeting, leather furniture, panoramic window views of Mt Megunticook, Ragged Mt, and of course: lawns, trees, and the brook. It also has a full-sized hide-a-bed, and ample closet space. The open plan offers a cheery, fully furnished kitchen with new washer dryer, new dishwasher, new full-sized LPG cooking range, with easy access to the deck through the kitchen door. The full bath room is also on this level with over-sized shower, and new lavatory, and toilet. Just outside the bathroom door, is a let-down stairway to the 3rd floor bedroom with a very private den/lounge where the DirecTV serviced Sony Trinitron Flatscreen entertainment center is located, along with a comfortable, fully supplied, professional work station...WiFi access too via MyFairpoint.

There is a new memory foam king-sized bed in the third floor master bedroom adjoining the den/lounge, with ample large closets, and also a make-up area.

Every room has been freshly painted.

N.B.: By special arrangement, there is an additional [adjoining the apartment] bedroom on the second floor with a queen bed (a guest room in the main house) available for an additional charge of $65.00 per night. (Please note this a whole other bedroom which can be added to your vacation unit.) If you think you might want to add this bedroom to your reservation, a personal phone call (207 542-7391) with the owners is a must, as we may have it scheduled for our own family's use.

Additionally, if there is a condition that might preclude a vacationer from using the let down stairway to the 3rd floor, (if it is available), the 2nd floor queen bedroom might be substituted for the 3rd floor bedroom at no extra charge. (If both bedrooms are used, then the additional charge of $65.00 would apply.) But in such a case, there would be no TV on the 2nd floor, as it is in the 3rd floor.

About Brian & Negar Smith

Brian & Negar are friendly owners (but not too friendly).

Negar is a retired nurse; Brian is a retired teacher. Brian is a 4th generation Camden lad with a great knowledge of the area to share with guests: where to go, what to see, what to do, where to eat, where to drink and dance, etc.. After teaching high school in Scotland, 1975-77, Brian moved to Iran where he met and married Negar in 1978, and just 17 days after their marriage, they found themselves in the middle of the Iranian Revolution 1978/79. Come along: spend a vacation with us and not a fortune!

Brian & Negar Smith purchased this apartment in 1943

Why Brian & Negar Smith chose Camden

Brian was born 'into' this lovely old home in 1943, when he was just six days old! The home has all the earmarks of a much-loved, life-time residence!

What makes this apartment unique

Absolutely beautiful countryside home bordering Camden Hills State Park!

Perfect place to stay in Camden ME

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment located 2 minutes from the heart of Camden. Very comfortable, clean and very well maintained. The owners are easy to contact and offer an excellent customer service. We felt warmfully welcomed. The owner even gave us a couple of his latest magazines to read and kindly offered us to stay one more night at no charge, the apartment being available at the end of our stay. Camden is a charming area and you can not ask for a greater place to stay for such a reasonable cost. We have had a wonderful time and we thank you very much. We strongly recommend this rental for a relaxing vacation in Maine and we would go back anytime.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough nice things about this property or the owners, Brian and Negar. The original house dates from the 1830s and is brimming with charm and delightful little quirks that our family of three just loved. That said, the apartment area that we stayed in is completely updated and it is very functional, clean and comfortable. The property itself is lovely - very green and perfect for our 8yo son to run around and play in. We also slept really well as it is perfectly quiet at night and just a very peaceful place to be.

Brian and Negar were extremely helpful without being intrusive and made us feel like a part of the family. Five generations of Brian's family have lived in the house and it has a very warm and welcoming feel. As a family of readers, we also appreciated special touches like the interesting selection of current-edition magazines, as well as the collection of classic books in the upstairs bedroom. The television worked perfectly well, but we didn’t use it as we spent all our time exploring the area or just relaxing in the comfortable living area wih some good reading material.

The layout of the space is really functional and convenient with everything in perfect working order - gas range, washer/dryer unit, full-size fridge, etc. Climbing the pull-down stairs to the bedroom loft area might be challenging for some, but our family had great fun with it.

Camden is in a particularly beautiful area of Maine and we had a wonderful time exploring it. Hiking on Mt. Battie was our favorite adventure of the week. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Negar and I very much cherish the experiences we have with travelers who want to get to know us, and who enjoy discovering our beautiful old home. It makes our VRBO "retirement project" even more satisfying. Brian
