Nestled amongst the historic inns and grand homes of Camden’s High Street, you will find a true gem, Caretakers Cottage. A formerly modest 1820’s Cape that served as the residence of the caretakers at Mountain Arrow – a large summer cottage for the Seaverns family, Caretakers has been transformed into a modern house for the 21st century, while remaining true to its 19th century origins. This wonderful Saturday to Saturday vacation rental home is a short walk from downtown Camden’s restaurants, shops, public library, harbor and schooner excursions.

Before making a reservation, please familiarize yourself with our policies.


The style of Caretakers is understated elegance. The present owners wanted to create a unique modern New England feel by blending traditions from the area with European influences while giving the highest attention to detail and quality. The plastered walls, with their traditional hand-made ruggedness are equal to that of the original house. The wide pine flooring, some older than 200 years, and the handmade red birch wood kitchen cabinets are all details keeping with the integrity of the original house.

First Floor

The floor plan has been designed to allow for both entertaining and solitude. Enter into an entryway with half bath and coat closet. A door leads into the well-stocked cooks kitchen and beyond to the dining and living area. Top of the line appliances, ample storage and exquisite lighting complete the new kitchen. The air-conditioned¬† living room has a 42″ TV. The living room, dining room and kitchen are open, but still subtly separated to allow for both quiet reading and creating a gourmet extravaganza. Off of the dining room are French doors leading to a lovely lighted deck with a privacy screen. A queen air-conditioned bedroom with ensuite bathroom and radiant heat complete the first floor.

Second Floor

Climb the stairway to the second floor. On one side of the house, there is another air-conditioned bedroom with two single beds, a small TV for watching movies and an ensuite bathroom (shower). To the other side is the air-conditioned master suite with king size bed and a bathroom with a sunken tub/shower. Laundry room is in this area.
