A lovely stay on the Megunticook River
My family from England had a wonderful time. The cottage was just the right size for the four of them and was perfectly equipped. The boys loved being on the water. Connie was wonderful and accommodating!
A simple, charming and well-equipped cottage in a fantastic location. The river, which really is more of a lake, was wonderful for swimming, kayaking, and relaxing on the dock. Villages of Camden, Rockport and Rockland, which are teeming with life are a stone’s throw from the cottage. In other words, you get the best of all worlds. My one suggestion would be to have light-blocking curtains in the bedroom, as the morning light wakes you up quite early. Sleeping mask would be another way to address the same issue.
We very much enjoyed our stay and recommend this rental highly.
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! And thank you for the suggestion about the light blocking curtains—I think that’s a very good idea & will follow up on it.
We hope you’ll find some time to stay at River’s Edge again! Thanks so much!
Lovely, peaceful, perfect
River’s Edge is a wonderful place to unwind, swim, read, explore the Camden/Rockport area (or not...many days we chose to never leave the cottage and immediate surrounding area). The cottage itself is charming, comfortable and well-equipped, with a fantastic location in a quiet part of the river. The kitchen has everything we needed to enjoy cooking and we ate every meal, and had morning coffee each day, on the covered front deck. We slept so well, listening to the magical calls of the pair of loons that appeared each evening in the river in front of the cottage.
I’m a swimmer and River’s Edge afforded every opportunity i could want, from a refreshing dip in the morning to a long swim across the river in the afternoon and a quick swim each evening. Perfect. In between, my husband and I took long walks, read and played on the expansive front lawn with our pup (who swam even more than I did).
On our third day, a bald eagle dive to the edge of the river Immediately in front of the cottage, rising with a sizable fish in its talons. It was breathtaking !
The area right around the cottage is fun to explore walking (Beaucaire Rd can’t be beat). We hope to return next year and will definitely bring bikes and rent a kayak front Maine Sports.
Communication with Constance was easy and pleasant. She has done everything possible to ensure that guests at River’s Edge have a relaxing time enjoying this very special place. It’s quite perfect!
One final word from my husband, an avid Red Sox fan. He deeply appreciated being able to catch the night games on the great TV at the cottage. While we didn’t spend a lot of time doing that, having NESN available after a day of fishing, swimming, reading and walking, made his vacation complete:-)
At first, I thought the price was a bit high but when I saw the setting I immediately knew it was worth every penny. The Megunticook River has a dam at each end with a 24-hour very slow flow of fresh water. It was such a perfect temperature and we were never aware of any current. On the big Megunticook lake (which flows into this "river"), there are motor boats and a public beach that can get crowded. That water is a bit cooler too... On the river, only canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and of course, swimmers. And so few! We often had the entire water to ourselves. The dock was a lovely place to lounge. The cottage is not updated nor glamorous and has old furnishings but we had everything we needed and it was clean. Another amazing thing about this rental is that you are in a magical, serene place yet only a mere 1.5 miles to the Camden harbor! So close yet a world away. We took a 3-minute drive every day to get ice cream! The lake rentals are much farther out. I only found two vacay rentals on the Megunticook River and we are so happy it was available. It is the best place to stay in the Camden area. We would go back for sure!
Our home away from home
My husband and I have stayed at Rivers Edge for the last three years. We were delighted on our first visit to find everything exactly as described, and even better in many cases! The cottage is comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. The setting is perfect, and the best thing of all is the deck. We eat, nap, watch the loons and read there every day. Constance is a perfect hostess who keeps the cottage exactly the way she would live there. We cannot recommend it highly enough for a couple who want the Maine experience of water and nature.
Looking forward to having you back!
You don't have to be right next to the ocean in Camden to enjoy a nice getaway. Nestled among the woods and bordering a beautiful lake, the River's Edge property was just what we were looking for -- quiet, comfortable, close to town and very pet-friendly. The owner (Constance) couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The modem for the Wi-Fi went out the first day and she immediately drove into the next town to get a replacement. All in all -- a very pleasant experience.

At Home in Nature:
Hold et øye på monarkens kokong - det henger under en stein og har kanter av gull. Den flyter i elva er et yndet fristed for Dragonflies & fluer, både lang tid beboere av planeten vår, som fungerer som pollinatorer og mygg eaters. De er venner og vil ikke stikke eller skade deg. De vil komme og sitte på din tå eller finger og la deg ha en god titt på deres vakre iriserende farger og mønstre. Dette er en spesiell opplevelse og den eneste måten å se hva de egentlig ser ut. Det er ingen kjent måte å bevare fargene på en Dragonfly prøven. Noen ganger kan du skimte en Beaver familie spille langs bredden og i vannet sent på ettermiddagen. Lom kan bli hørt ringer ut og sett svømmende forbi. I fjor sommer rapporterte våre gjester at lom hadde babyer. De bærer dem på ryggen som de glir forbi! Utspekulert vaskebjørn vanligvis luske rundt om natten på jakt etter mat. Skunk ser utrolig vennlig, søt og fluffy som hun prances over gården fra én del av skogen til den andre. Også i skumringen kan du spionere rødreven som bor rundt innsjøen og elva. For et syn! Du kan også se pinnsvin peowling for bjørnebær. De lever i de utemmede deler av eiendommen, mellom huset og dammen. Sangene du hører på forsommeren kvelden blir sunget av Bull Frog refrenget.
Inntagende Høsten på River Edge:
Som sommeren går mot slutten vil du begynne å se kanadiske gjess og høre deres honking som de gjør sin vei til sine vinter hjem. Du vil også se lom, skarv, Osprey, Blue Heron, Egrets, Crows, Hummingbirds, Hawks, og Tyrkia Vultures. Vær oppmerksom på himmelen og spot en Eagle soaring alene. I september, lytte til Owl på kveldene og noen ganger en Woodpecker ved daggry. Oktober bringer skiftende farger hver dag rundt. Cool friske luften er mild nok til å invitere deg til å sitte ute på verandaen og nyte den rike naturen som det forbereder for vinteren. I november er bladene faller og det beste av høsten i New England setter inn.
