Beautiful, immaculate little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with this adorable cottage. There was plenty of room for 4 adults, and it was spotless! The bed in the master was unbelievably comfortable. We have been renting homes for vacations for 10 years and this was one of the nicest we've stayed in. It's located in a very quiet neighborhood, but a quick walk to town.

Yes, that is how sure I am you will find this airy, cool, tastefully decorated home. Slightly beachy feel with the white upholstered and comfy furnishings. I especially like the absence of the usual Maine tchotchkes...not a shell, buoy or nautical flag anywhere. Nice touches...tons of outlets for electronics, darkening blinds where you need them, street window shielded by a gigantic rhododendron (no need to draw the blinds), nice selection of light reads and 2 coffee makers. The AC was needed and appreciated. The owners seem to have thought of everything. Honestly, I tried to find something to criticize but could not. Look for the photos by one of the owners, Christie. Simply lovely.

Welcoming Willow Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Willow Cottage. We were greeted by Peter, the owner, when we arrived who made us feel welcome and answered any questions we had. The cottage is spacious, light-filled, airy, and

comfortable... and very clean. The kitchen has all conveniences, even a Keurig coffee brewer!

The location is great - just four blocks from the harbor area, yet far enough away to be quiet and uncrowded. We took short trips to see the Rockland Lighthouse and Marshall Point Lighthouse, Rockport Harbor, and the Observatory Tower at Bucksport ... not to mention Camden Harbor itself! There were useful brochures in the house with local restaurant menus. We recommend the Camden Deli for creative sandwiches at their tables overlooking the harbor.

The only thing worth mentioning on a slightly negative side is that the laundry is in the basement, so if steep stairs are a problem, you should consider this.

We have always had good luck with our online rentals, and this experience was one of the best!

Willow Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Willow Cottage. Everything was decorated with care. We loved the simple, new and clean little house with plenty of room and close to town. We could easily have stayed longer if there weren't more visitors waiting to come and stay!

Thank you for a great start of our summer and we hope to get back to Camden soon.

Willow Cottage in August

  • 5 of 5

My parents, my 8 year old and I arrived at Willow on a blisteringly hot humid Saturday. Our hosts had the A/C on! No one in Maine has A/C - we were amazed and even more so later in the week when my mother, who was suffering from pollen/tree allergies was so grateful to have A/C. Trust me when I tell you, this house does not photograph nearly as well as it looks! You can tell that everything in and out of this home was carefully planned. The backyard is enormous and the landscaping is charming. The back deck is expansive and comfortable. The kitchen is totally modern and has all the amenities. Each bedroom is beautifully composed for total relaxation and rest. The living room has plenty of space and the furnishings are enormously comfortable. Cable TV was a lifesaver on a rainy, cold day. The bathrooms were clean and everything operated properly. Washer and Dryer also worked very well. Everything is spotless, even the basement. The location of Willow Cottage is excellent - an easy walk into town and in a serene neighborhood. The nearby houses are lovely. There is a nice garage. When we had an issue with a left-behind item after we had checked out, the owner so graciously got it to me immediately. I wouldn't change a thing about Willow Cottage and we hope to stay there again soon.

Regarding Camden, there is no better place to explore the midcoast of Maine. Every interesting town is within driving distance easily for a daytrip. There are dozens of EXCELLENT restaurants in every category as well as take-out options for picnics on any amazing vista. There are 4 (!) ice cream shacks. There are 4 bookstores. The public library is the best in the world for kids and well-above average for adults. There are at least 5 great beaches nearby. There are more awesome boutiques for home goods and clothes than anywhere in Maine. You can easily get a New York Times and an espresso or take a hike up a really big mountain. A week is not enough in Camden.
