Camden, Maine rated in top 10 ‘Charming small towns in America’ by Trip Advisor

Camden was today listed at no 8 in the top 10 of  ‘Charming small towns in America by Trip Advisor’.  Carmel, CA was number 1, with Charlottesville Va,  Telluride  CO, and Rockport, MA  also listed in the top 10.  We are just tickled pink!

Camden has also recently  been declared the best Main Street in New England by Boston Magazine, the prettiest harbor in Maine by the readers of Down East, one of New England’s top 25 foliage towns by Yankee magazine.

“The view from the forested slopes of Mount Battie straight down to the forest of masts in Camden Harbor is one of the most dramatic in New England — and never more beautiful than in fall,” writes Michael Blanding, author of the article. “For a closer look at the trees, hike nearby Mount Megunticook or Bald Rock Mountain.”IMG_0701

Of course, everyone who lives here already knows how beautiful Camden is in the Fall.  We would love you to experience the magnificent beauty for yourselves.  We hope to see you soon!
