About Kate Cohen

I grew up in Camden just around the corner on Bay View Street, and was lucky enough to return with my husband to raise our four children in Maine. My husband is a Real Estate Broker here in town and we are both very active in our community. Camden is a truly special spot and we believe whether this is your first visit or your 100th, it won't be your last! We work very hard to make your stay enjoyable, we are accessible…you may run into us at Boyton Mckay or having a snack on the deck of the Waterfront. We hope to see you soon!

Kate Cohen purchased this house in 2012

Why Kate Cohen chose Camden

This is a new property for us this season and it is lovely. Situated on one of Camden's premier streets, just up from the Peyton Place house. The Chestnut House is an easy walk to town and to the beach, just up from the playground at Montessori school and the YMCA. The house has a wonderful 'flow' and with all the updates it is sure to become a favorite with visitors.

What makes this house unique

The Chestnut House has a lovely screened porch overlooking the back yard, where you can relax after a day of fun in Camden. There is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy your stay.

Beautiful historic home but with all of the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The house was charming and had close proximity to downtown and the harbor. We were in walking distance of both. The neighborhood was a joy to walk in. Beautiful historical homes and manicured lawns. The house had charm, was clean and had comfortable beds. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, plates, etc. There were accommodations for children with a small separate play area and TV. Our stay was very pleasant.

a very special house

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities you could want (but bring your own herbs, soy sauce, condiments, etc if you are there for a short stay and want to cook). Otherwise a great kitchen to work in. What I liked the most was the character of the house. That, and how clean it was.

Great location and neat location. Liked neighborhood and being able to walk to town.

  • 4 of 5

Had great time. House perfect for us with 2 young children. Kitchen and back porch and yard were favorites. Need small floor fans in all upstairs bedrooms.(there in heat wave). Also loved having games available and folding chairs. Very comfortable.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

90 Chestnut was the perfect house for a girls runaway vacation. Plenty of room for all of us, great kitchen, lovely neighborhood. The convenience to the town/harbor was really wonderful, as we could park the car and walk. Being from the South, the October air was a little chilly; it would have been nice to have some throws/blankets for the early morning cup of coffee on the porch, but we managed just fine. Would come back to this house in a heartbeat!! Thank you Katie for helping make this a once-in-a-lifetime-trip for us!

Perfect Village Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying in this house. The house is perfect. Beautifully renovated, with a modern kitchen and comfortable living spaces. It is also accessible with a first floor bedroom and bath which we needed. The rest of the family was supper comfortable in the 3 upstairs bedrooms. Our favorite spots were sitting around the kitchen island in the mornings and sitting on the screened in porch throughout the day. The house has super easy access to town and the beach.

And Kate is a great host - making sure we have everything we need to make our stay perfect!
