John and Linda Burgess are the BEST. They are always so accommodating, and make your visit such a pleasant and special retreat. My thanks to the Burgess, for all you do.
This was our first real vacation since our son was born 6 years ago. We couldn't have picked a better place than Bay View Cottage. It felt like home. We used it as a base of operations and took some wonderful day trips. Our son's favorite was riding the ferry to Islesboro. At the southern tip of the island is a secluded beach area with spectacular views of the bay. We had several picnics there. Fort Knox above Belfast is another interesting trip. Great places to eat not far from the cottage were The Weathervane in Belfast and the Lobster Pound at Lincolnville Beach. Also Cappys in Camden. We are looking forward to coming back often. Linda and John are excellent hosts. Anything you need is taken care of. They seem to anticipate everything. Thanks again for a memorable vacation.
We were impressed with the cleanliness and courtesy 10 years ago. After a few more (too infrequent) visits, we still are. One of our favorite destinations.
Everything about our stay exceeded our most optimistic expectations. Even 2 days of rain couldn't dampen our spirits. We then proceeded to Ogunquit for a few days. While the motel there was very nice, there was something missing: the warm hospitality of John and Linda Burgess who had made us feel like real guests! We miss them and Camden and hope to come back soon. It's a pleasure to be contributing to this guestbook. Thanks again!
We couldn't have chosen a better location for our vacation! Rather than wasting time packing and re-packing every few days, we decided to work from a base equidistant from the areas we planned to explore. It worked out great. We easily executed 10 or more day trips (including Acadia twice) and returned to our home-sweet-away-from-home each evening. Like many of you reading these comments, we researched extensively before deciding on Camden and were confounded by the choices. Look no further! A beautifully maintained properties and very nice hosts await you. Highly recommend! We especially appreciated attention to detail. We look forward to our next visit.
We had a great stay at Bay View Cottage with its privacy and spectacular view of Penobscot Bay and Islesboro. The location really served our familyís needs. It was close to Camden and Belfast, but distant enough for us to appreciate the natural beauty and quiet of the Northport area. The cottage was a special surprise; roomy, comfortable, and well equipped. We enjoyed breakfasts on the deck, and star gazing before retiring. The Jacuzzi came in handy after our hiking trips to Acadia National Park. All in all, our stay could not have been better. We look forward to booking Bay View again.
Thanks for your welcoming hospitality.
We recently spent a week at the Village Green cottages with our friends, Jim and Carolyn. We loved everything about our stay there. The cottage is lovely and so clean. The location is great. Thank you so much for your hospitality, John and Linda. We will definitely be returning.
We have stayed at one on the Burgess' rental properties every Christmas since 1997 and several other times. There is no place better. We have roamed the whole state and this is our favorite by far. John and Linda are the definition of the words host and hostess.
We just returned from a totally relaxing and romantic visit to Camden Hills. We loved the wood fireplace it was much nicer than the gas type and was all set and ready to go with plenty of firewood. We also loved the jacuzzi and the beautiful views of the bay! We will certainly be back again!
Ile Vue Cottage... What a wonderful place! I can't wait to go back!
We honestly could not have chosen a more beautiful place! Our friends and family are amazed at the natural beauty seen in our pictures of Camden and the surrounding areas of Mid-Cost Maine. A vacation we will always cherish. Hope to be back for an anniversary in the future!
Visited in August. The stay was fabulous. The cottage was the nicest and cleanest of the entire vacation. Great location in Maine. The Burgess' were very helpful regarding attractions in the area. Hope to visit again someday.
Our family of 4 spent three days in late August at one of the well-equipped Village Green cottages. Its location near Belfast was perfect for day trips to Acadia Natl Park and the Camden area. This was by far the best lodging we had during our east coast vacation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Village Green Cottages - accommodations were wonderful - far better than we had anticipated - but most of all it was the extraordinary "customer service" we received from John and Linda Burgess - their attention to making your stay perfect in every way - that will have us coming back in future years.
We love The Village Green Cottages. This is a wonderful place to go with your children and I encourage anyone with a family to stay there. Thank you for making our stays memorable. We will see you again soon.
We recommend any of Camden Hills Realty's properties without reservation. Over the last five years we stayed nineteen times. The service and attention to detail was uniformly excellent. It was a special treat to watch the sun rise over Penobscot Bay, and to see the changing color of the Bay as the weather varied from clear skies and sunshine to fog and cloudy skies. The fires made our home away from home a cozy place to read and recharge the batteries. Unfortunately, we won't be renting again because John Burgess served as our real estate agent and found the perfect house for us in the Camden area.
We have thoroughly enjoyed each stay and look forward to the next.... always immaculate with everything you need. Beautifully decorated. A wonderful, relaxing get-away.
Perfect in every way!... The people at Camden Hills Realty know how to do it right!
We just spent a wonderful week. The accommodations are spacious, clean and comfortable. The view is fantastic, and the people in Camden and nearby towns are very friendly. What makes it special, are the extra efforts that the owners put into it. The details such as the firewood for the fire place, the decorations on the walls, and the thoughtful placement of lighting and furniture are things which make us feel at home. By the end of the week, we really did not want to leave. We will definitely revisit again.
Thanks for your hospitality!
We enjoyed another great visit. We will be back. Thank you for a great time.
