Relaxed, cozy, romantic, and very friendly, the Camden Maine Stay is a grand old home located in the historic district of Camden Maine, one of America’s most beautiful seaside villages. A two-block walk down tree lined streets brings you to the harbor park, shops and restaurants.
Mid-coast Maine has it all. Guests at the Camden Maine Stay can walk four blocks to over thirty miles of wonderful Camden Hills State Park trails, play golf on one of the country’s premier courses, sail in a windjammer, eat lobster within yards of where they are being caught or sit on the rock at the top of Mt. Battie where poet Edna St. Vincent Millay sat to gaze at the islands in the bay and gain inspiration.
In 1802, when Thomas Jefferson was President of the United States, Route 1 was a dirt road and Maine was still a part of the state of Massachusetts, Alden Bass built a house at 22 High Street here in Camden. A striking main house with an attached carriage house and a four-story barn, the home is an outstanding example of the progressive farm buildings common to 19th century Maine. The Camden Maine Stay is the second oldest of the sixty-six lovely homes that are listed on the National Register of Historical Places in the High Street Historic District.
