Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Storefront of Owl and Turtle BookstoreOwl & Turtle Bookshop Café, located in the heart of downtown Camden, Maine, has been a coastal treasure for more than fifty years. Always independently run and operated, this quality bookshop offers a hand-curated selection of titles and an ambiance that feels both familiar and special.

The coffee shop, added in 2014, serves locally-brewed coffee, teas, hot chocolate, and homemade baked goods. Whether a guest/customer/friend seeks a community gathering spot or a quiet enclave to read or browse, O&T fits the bill.

Moreover, Owl & Turtle is not only a memorable place, it’s an experience--one that visitors return to year after year, one that people seek out as a destination, one that locals make their daily habit. While the shop has historically enjoyed a robust summer and ever-expanding shoulder seasons, people are now moving to the mid-coast in droves. The business is thus primed to be a lucrative year-round operation. Business offered at: $199,500 (Includes inventory & equipment).

Interested parties can contact Kessler Horty at Camden Real Estate Company at (207) 272-9346 or kessler@camdenre.com.
