The Chestnut House is a beautifully appointed Camden home in one of the villages most sought after neighborhoods. Within just a few minutes walk to the beach, harbor, dining or downtown; this wonderful house will surely leave lasting memories. It is also one of the few air conditioned homes available for rent in Camden. Camden is the premier location in Mid-Coast Maine and Chestnut Street is arguably the best location for a short walk to town.
Built in 1850, this classic New England home is beautifully appointed with traditional, antique, and cottage furnishings as well as beautiful garden landscaping. The backyard is enclosed and private, featuring a 7-person Jacuzzi tub and play-set to keep kids entertained. The main house itself sleeps 9 comfortably in 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. To reach a sleeping capacity of 12 guests, you must add on the lower-level Suite. This suite has a private entrance leading a bedroom with King, Twin bed, and sleeper sofa as well as a bathroom with stall shower.
Take a step back in time as you walk historic Chestnut Street which begins right in the center of town at the Common. Huge trees arch over the street and frame a remarkable collection of homes, many with front porches and barns, creating a shady retreat in summer. The house sits just a few blocks from the numerous shops and notable waterfront restaurants in Camden Harbor. Schooners leave daily from the docks in town and visitors to Camden Hills State Park and Megunticook Lake come and go in the peak of the summer.

Town Info - Camden / Rockport
Well-loved by visitors and residents alike, the towns of Camden and Rockport were one until 1890. Even though governed separately today, they are essentially the same town combined with village centers a mile apart. The mountains tumble down to meet the ocean's edge, creating some of the best views and hiking opportunities in the state.
