The Camden Garden Cottage is a spacious and truly comfortable 3-bedroom getaway with a cottage feel, nestled among beautiful gardens and backed by acres of woodlands, ponds and fields. It is located in the desirable Pearl St. neighborhood, within walking distance to downtown Camden and Merryspring Nature Park. Owners have enjoyed sharing their cottage with guests for more than 10 years; ample landscaping and a historic barn provide a privacy buffer between our home and the guest accommodations.

The space

In addition to a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, the single-story cottage includes two more bedrooms and a second full bath. The master and second bedroom each have queen-sized beds. The third bedroom is set up with a daybed and secretary/bureau with drop-down leaf, so it can be used as a single bedroom and/or a study. Open-space living and dining areas and a fully equipped, modern kitchen complete the interior space. The dining table seats 6. A high chair, porta-crib, and baby bath are available on request at no additional charge.

Guest access

Guests have exclusive use of their own ample off-street private driveway / parking area, unlimited use of the entire cottage and adjoining outdoor deck, can use the large lawn area, and are free to wander about and enjoy all the gardens on the 3/4-acre property.

Interaction with guests

Hosts David and Paula are active retirees who live on the property and are available whenever needed. We greet our guests personally when they arrive and love to give tours of our gardens and chat about area attractions--we've lived here for 27 years!--although we first and foremost respect our guests' privacy and allow them to take the lead. We have shared this place we love with visitors coming from more than half the U.S. states and several foreign countries.

Other things to note

Because of its smart layout and 2 full baths, the cottage offers privacy even for two couples who are sharing, and since the it is set back far from the street and has with no homes immediately adjacent, it is generally very quiet while being only a half mile from the practical conveniences offered by a US Rt 1 shopping center that is only 1/2 mile distant. The best of both worlds.

David and Paula were wonderful hosts and created a welcoming environment for us and our two small kids. Their house is close to town and adorable. There were games and books galore, and David also provided us with a few pages of things to do/see/eat in the area-so helpful with the kids. This was a great stay, town and great first experience in Maine!

The original Camden “Garden Cottage” is very charming and romantic. The hosts were absolutely delightful and helpful. The flowers in the yard were spectacular and delightful to view. It was special to recognize that many flowers were unique to the area. Camden is a lovely, picturesque coastal town with many excellent restaurants and shops. It was ideally located for our day excursions focused primarily along Maine’s coastal region. Our 12-hour day excursions required traveling within 2 ½ hours north or 2 ½ hours south of Camden. We would love to return in the not-too-distant future, not only because of the wonderful accommodations of the “Garden Cottage” but also because of its central location to so many beautiful attractions.
