Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

An Exquisite arts and crafts designer built cottage, just up from Camden Maine's famed Laite Beach. Camden rests at the foothills of Mount Battie and is one of the most beautiful harbors in Maine. The windjammers set sail several times a day and it is a buzz of activity all summer long, filled with great shopping experiences and wonderful restaurants at every turn. The Camden Opera House has several fantastic events with live entertainment from Rock and Roll to Classical Music and live Theatre.

'Stone's Throw' is the guesthouse to Boulder Cottage which is a fabulous pink turn of the century victorian, ergo the name Stone's Throw.

It's also just a stone's throw to town!

Awesome cabin just a short walk to down town.

Josh was a great host, checked in to make sure we had everything we need. The cabin itself is beautiful, everything you need is there, stunning kitching. Beautiful quite neighbourhood walk to downtown, highly recommended! Thanks Josh!

The perfect size!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on a quick weekend visit to Camden. The home was the perfect size for the two of us. With just a 15 minute walk to the town center, we didn't move our car once we parked it. The home was clean and updated.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Stone's Throw! I loved the neighborhood that this cottage is in. Great architecture. Not far from town. Perfect for a couple. Great option in Camden at a much better value than the hotels, especially during peak season.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments. I'm glad you had a good time and enjoyed Camden. It's seems many of my guests do really like Stone's Throw Cottage. It is only 5 or 6 blocks from the center of town. Camden, Rockland, and the surrounding area is a pretty special place. Do come and see for yourself.

Safety and Privacy Concern

  • 1 of 5

I am a business executive who has traveled the past 50 years and this is the worst experience I have had. Booked property for 7 nights. Taking professional course nearby. Single woman traveler. Smoke alarm battery going off plus other issues when arrived. Took owner who lives next door 5 hours to respond. Then said the reason he did not respond is because he knew there were issues. Highly agitated and yelling. Appeared intoxicated. Next day, left message to call me. Believe everyone can have a bad night. But no response. Returned to property first night after class to find things in cottage were not as I had left them. Texted owner to find out he was the one who entered. Texted he owned the property and he had a right to enter without notification and that we don't need to talk. Texted "we have done nothing but try to make things right for you." This from an owner who had done nothing. Note, smoke alarm was outside the front door. No need to enter to repair but it was still hanging from ceiling not repaired. Freaked me out especially given behavior previous night. No other options locally. Called police to ask rights. They were sympathetic but could not advise without rental agreement. Which I found out there isn't for this property. Put chair under door knob for rest of stay. Avoided contact. When I returned home I sent him a detailed account of my experience for his reply but still no response.

Knowing he may enter at any time and move things or worse I ended up putting my expensive equipment, jewelry and belongings in my car each morning and hauling them back in each night.

Sidebar. Property was dirty. Photos available. Spoke to owner prior to booking to inquire if the property was scent free. No toxic cleaning or laundry products due to my chemical sensitivity. He assured me the property is scent free. Couldn't have been farther from the truth.

When a man aggressively attacks a woman verbally when he knows she is traveling alone is definitely not concerned about her. Ignoring a tenants calls and texts when there truly is a problem and then telling them they didn’t respond because they knew there was a problem is unacceptable. Misrepresentation of rental property when the tenant had specific requests is wrong especially when someone's health is involved. Serious allegations for sure but this owners behavior ruined my stay and put undue pressure on an already stressful week while taking a course.

A perfect hideaway in Camden

  • 5 of 5

Every feature is first class. Lovely bathroom with full laundry. Premium appliances in the kitchen. Comfortable living room and bedroom. Landscaped and surrounded by forest, but less than 5 minutes from downtown Camden. Gracious and respectful host. Couldn't have been better!
