Driving Directions

The Camden Rockland area, “where the mountains meet the sea” is an ideal touring destination just 4 hours from Boston and approximately 8 hours from New York City.

Our bed and breakfast’s central location on the Maine’s Midcoast near Camden, Rockport, Rockland and Belfast makes lodging at Victorian by the Sea an ideal home base for your day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, Portland and the outlet shops in Freeport, or the Islands of Penobscot Bay.

Victorian by the Sea B&B is located four miles north of Camden and 1 1/2 miles south of Lincolnville Beach just off of Route 1.  Watch for the blue state highway sign, turn onto Sea View Drive at the big Lincolnville Motel and Victorian by the Sea B&B signs, drive beyond the Lincolnville Motel cabins and proceed 1/4 mile toward the Penobscot Bay to the 33 Sea View Drive parking lot.  (note: The turn onto Sea View Drive is a 90 degree turn, downhill onto a gravel road)
