Formerly the Mansard Manor Bed & Breakfast; now a private home, the High Street Retreat is a beautifully appointed Camden getaway in a historic village neighborhood. Within just a few minutes walk to the harbor, hiking trails, dining or downtown, this wonderful house will surely leave lasting memories. 

Built in 1875 by a prosperous shipbuilder, the classic Victorian is adorned with traditional antique and comfortable cottage furnishings as well as manicured lawns and gardens.  The interior of this grand home boasts high ceilings, original wide pine floors, and intricate moldings.  In addition to the gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, and spacious rooms great for relaxation and enjoyment; the guest rooms offer fresh contemporary bedding, with nearly all having their own en suite bathrooms.  Enjoy your morning coffee and evening cocktails on the deck with peeks of the harbor through the trees.

BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - it is a short 10 minute walk/3 minute drive to the pea-sized / pebbly town owned public beach called "Laite Beach". Sandy Lincolnville Beach is 5 miles to the north and great for a beach day.  There is not an actual usable sandy beach at this property (it's not even on the water), but the nearby beach is great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" a sandy beach.

On the Water in Maine saved our vacation this year! We were very fortunate as we had a last minute issue managed by another rental agency. Your team was amazing and helped us quickly find an alternative that worked for us, especially as we travel with two dogs. Thank you so much!
We were very pleased with 5 High Street. The house and property are beautiful and well maintained. The layout to the house, including the deck, is simply wonderful. Great flow and very nicely decorated.

Easy and convenient.
The house was lovely and the location a close walking distance to Camden for groceries, restaurants, ice cream and shopping. We also loved hiking from the house to Mt. Battie!

Efficient and pleasant. No hiccups.
Excellent house, noisy street. Home was warm and cheerful, sunny and spacious. The homeowners have outfitted it with practically everything you would need and of best quality.The walk to the library park with coffee mug in hand to view the harbor waking up was my highlight. The serene Lake Megunticook just 5 minutes up the road, Camden Hills State park a short ride north, the local wine purveyor and town grocer literally just a stroll away. The shopping was interesting and varied and excellent quality. Camden is a charming town with no sour notes. We will be back.

Always terrific - communications are always very clear and thorough. we have rented a number of houses from OTWIM and the photos and descriptions are always accurate and reliable.
This is a lovely, spacious house in a great location in downtown Camden. We visited for a week after a camp pick-up, and our kids had a terrific time exploring the town, walking to the beach and library and playing all sorts of ball games in the very large front yard. The house was very nicely furnished, with great linens and finishes and a very comfortable and large living room. The kitchen was terrific - large, great appliances and high-end cookware, appliances and furnishings. All in all an outstanding house. We usually stay on a lake or on MDI, but it was a very nice change of pace to stay in town for a week. This is a great house for families with pre-teen and teen age children, who can go out and explore the town on their own.

Everyone was very responsive at every stage of planning. A minor question about the grill was instantly dealt with by staff.
This is a beautiful, spacious, and quite luxurious home. The master bedroom suite is absolutely gorgeous. The location is perfect. I especially appreciated the very well-equipped and beautifully organized kitchen. Although it sounds like a small thing, I noted that there were tissues and waste paper baskets in every room - a little thing, but indicative of great attention to detail. Only concerns: the WiFi seemed a bit "spotty" at times; the other bedrooms are rather small and a bit confined due to the number of items of furniture in them.

Nice experience working with On the Water in Maine. Everything was easy and there were no snags or miscommunications. All the details were considered to make the stay easy and pleasant.
We loved the house. It was elegant yet felt like home. There were plenty of spaces for our family of 8 to hang out together or separate. The kitchen was great to cook in and had all the nicest cookwear and appliances. It was so easy to walk to the coffee shop, restaurants and shops. When we come back to Camden I would hope to stay in the High Street House again.
