Why Jim & Jennifer Wickenden chose Camden
Originally built in 1932 and the home for many years of a popular local doctor, Dr. Millington, the house was re-built in 2007 by Stephen Wickenden, a very talented and sought-after builder in the Mid-Coast Region, using a variety of natural woods and the highest quality fixtures and fittings.
What makes this House unique
A beautiful lakefront setting only three miles from the restaurants, shops, and ocean activities in Camden, Maine.

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.
Loved our repeat visit as much as the first!
We have been repeat guests at this spectacular home. We plan on returning again in a few weeks. Just can't get enough! A special place to spend leisure time with your family.
So happy that we came back to this wonderful home!
The Wickeden's were incredibly helpful before and during the stay. The home is clean and well-equipped, and the location is perfect. I wish we could have stayed longer!
Beautiful house in a beautiful location
Fantastic stay! Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Home very well taken care of. Only 5 mins from Camden bit on a gorgeous quiet lake. Jim the owner was very helpful and responsive. Perfect for a family
