Why Jim & Jennifer Wickenden chose Camden
Quiet location, spectacular views, sunsets, excellent swimming right off dock. Beautifully finished interior with lots of cozy spaces!
What makes this House unique
A beautiful lakefront setting only three miles from the restaurants, shops, and ocean activities in Camden, Maine, this house is well located in a highly desirable section of Megunticook Lake, where there is no high speed boating in a "no wake" zone. This means it is ideal for all types of paddle boats and swimmers of all ages. The evenings are exceptionally private as there are no other houses in the immediate vicinity located on the water, but must cross the street to use their docks. The remainder of the lake is available for high speed boating for those who choose to rent a power boat. Beaucaire Avenue is a quiet, leafy, residential road with no high speed traffic and is ideal for walkers, bikers and runners, located along a very pleasant and slightly hilly and windy 2 mile loop.

Perfect family rental property!
We absolutely loved this property. From the open plan post and beam to the wrap-around porch to the dock and the water, this was the perfect property for a multi-generational family get-together!
Wonderful house on beautiful lake with great swimming, kayak, and canoe access
This house is all that it is advertised to be and more. It easily accommodated our extended family of eight with full cooking and laundry facilities. Fully furnished with comfortable living and bedroom furniture inside, and a convenient dock for swimming and boat access, along with a separate kayak and canoe launch outside. The sunsets over Lake Megunticook were spectacular and often complemented with the presence of loons.
Jim and Jennifer’s cottage was perfect! The location is awesome. Close to town but quiet and tucked away on the most beautiful lake. Very private. The house was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Jim and Jennifer were great hosts and we are already planning to come back next year!
We had an incredible week in Maine. Great house in a great location. Camden is wonderful!!!
Beautiful and relaxing location and a great week with friends!
What a fun week we had at this beautiful lake house! Our group was two families, one from Chicago IL and one from Portland OR. We were looking for relaxation, time together and the perfect location and this house was it. We knew from reading previous reviews it was a special place and they were right. The house was very comfortable, had everything we needed (our kids LOVED the record player!!), was quiet and private (despite being close to the road) and the lake views (especially at sunset) and swimming dock were perfect. We ventured out in the mornings, including walking at Fernald's Neck Preserve on the Lake, hiking Mt Battie (take the trailhead at Megunticook Street), and walks on Beaucaire and the surrounding streets. Afternoons were almost always spent on the dock - swimming, jumping, reading in the sun, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding (we rented one through Maine Sports on Rt 1). It was, simply put, the perfect summer vacation. We also did a day trip to Acadia which was well worth it. Also highly recommend the Morning Haul on the "Lively Lady" of Camden Harbor Cruises. We all enjoyed watching them haul the traps and learning about lobsters. The kids got to toss the small lobsters back and bait the traps. Highly recommend Camden Cone for ice cream. It was delicious! We also did a catered dinner (lobster rolls, chowder, salads, cookies etc) through Laura Cabot Catering to celebrate an anniversary. It was very good and so nice to enjoy on the deck at sunset. Overall, we would go back to Megunticook Lake in a heartbeat and hope to be back at this very special place soon!
WE loved our stay at the lake house. The inlet sheltered our swimming kids from rougher waters and felt like the kids had their own swimming hole. The house was so beautiful - a quaint cabin with all the comforts. Great week.
