This hotel has great views from the porches, very relaxing ambience, home-cooked muffins with a great view for breakfast, and a wonderful fireplace for pleasant conversation in the evening. The decor is more homey than modern, but for me it was terrific and the best value among all all of the lodging in the Camden area.

The HDI is maybe a litlle far from the town center, however ii did not matter to us at all. My partner and I stayed there foe one night and had a lovely time. Jo the owner was very kind, helping us with whatever we asked and needed. Our room was right at the big lawn, allowing us to easly... More

We found this B & B fairly late in our day. With no advance booking, we were grateful for a place to lay our head. We didn’t take advantage of its balcony, the continental breakfast or the lovely grounds down to the water. The lady who greeted us was welcoming. We concluded that we are probably not suited for some... More

The inn has many places to stay on the property. We chose the oceanfront building and had the room right on the bluff. The sound of the waves breaking on the shore could be heard at all times and the view was just like a calendar picture. Great coffee. homemade muffins and popovers topped of two great nights. Jo, the... More

We loved this place, we stayed in cottage #2 very clean with a kitchenette. The kitchen made it easy so we didn't have to eat out everyday. Property is well maintained, very quiet, we slept really well. Jo is very friendly along with her staff, very informative at the time of check in. We were given a map which was... More

We chose the High Tide Inn because they offered a few rooms for dogs. With the first phone call with Jo we selected a cottage room on the 2nd floor . There was an 'oh-oh" moment when we entered the hallway and I saw the steep staircase. However, it quickly changed to an 'ah-hah' moment when we saw the absolutely... More

Amazing wide sea views. Comfortable beds and friendly staff. Good internet connection. Very good value. Breakfast of muffins, juice, coffee, tea is included and the view from the dining room is awesome. There is a charming short walk to the beach below with chairs to sit in and watch the water. This is one of the best hotel experiences I... More

Many Motels in this area are nowhere near the water or have a distant view. This one has stunning views and a stairway down to a beautiful shoreline. The furnishings are scrupulously clean and a refreshing change from the standard chain motel room. The accommodations include an inn, cottages, and 2 "motor inns." Breakfast is included; ours was freshly baked... More

The view was incredible, especially from the charming hotel. Jo, the owner, bakes popovers for breakfast daily... as well as the most delicious gluten free blueberry muffins. The room in the hotel was comfortable with a rustic air, which only enhanced its appeal, and the bed was very comfortable. Jo and her staff were incredibly attentive and helpful - a... More
