The Camden Area














Camden – Where the Mountains Meet the Sea

Camden is centrally located in Midcoast Maine which is a great base to explore all of the coast. Guests can venture north to Acadia and explore the southern Maine Coast on day trips. Guests also enjoy 30 incredible miles of hiking trails which are right outside our door. Many trails offer you spectacular views of Penobscot Bay and if you love getting on the water, Penobscot bay is a water lovers haven.

The music and culture of Camden, which is a year round community, are fantastic and unique. Plus, many Camden restaurants are locally sourced featuring incredible seasonal specialties.




Camden is a lovely place for a "work /vacation".

  We are on High Street in the Camden Historic District, a few blocks walk to the Camden village, shops, harbor, restaurants, pubs, and all amenities. Highly recommended to go out for a sunset schooner sail. This map shows many of the area attractions, all within walking distance of the shop! The best public parking for the shop at is the "P" at the upper right corner,  behind the library.

Camden and Rockport are a maven for craftsfolk and artisans.  The area has many galleries and shops featuring hand-made items for sale.  Here's another nice listing.


There are about 20 restaurants, pubs, or deli's within a few blocks of the shop.  All are excellent.  We'll have a notebook available of our personal favourites for anyone interested.

If you bring family, there is plenty for them to do while you're at the shop.  We will have a shelf of resources with  endless ideas of things to do and places to visit.  Camden has a nice and typically quiet beach, and there are miles of sandy beaches within an hours drive.

Rockport Harbour also has a little beach known mostly just to the locals.



Camden and the Mid-Coast Maine area is an antiquers-lovers haven.     

There are numerous short hikes with phenomenal views.  The Mount Battie trailhead is 0.5 miles from the shop.  Here are a few more helpful resources for things to do, restaurants, etc.
