The proprietor was lovely and the view and grounds very pretty. Our cottage, although bouncy, looked out at the ocean, and was sweet. Homemade muffins at breakfast were delicious. Breakfast was until 10, which we loved. Would've been a 4, but the rug had dog hair, and the cottage didn't feel as private as we would've liked. Also, the room... More

Great place to stay. We chose a cottage for a little more privacy, and really liked it. Jo, the innkeeper was delightful and very helpful with dining suggestions. Yummy popovers and muffins right out of the oven every morning. Will definitely go back!

We stayed only one night in the "sleeping cottage" and loved it. Cotton linens and throw rugs. Soft quilt on the bed. Deep tub for soaking. There was a bit of water damage in the tub wall and the cottage was a bit stuffy even with all of the windows and screen door open, otherwise it would have rated five... More

The Inn is immaculate and the grounds are beautiful. The service is superb. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. It was very handy to have wi-fi access in the lobby and in the room. Jo is fun to talk to and she is a great resource of information about the local area.

My husband and I with two other friends stayed here during the North Atlantic Blues Festival for the first time. We wanted something different instead of hotels. We each stayed in one of the cabins, it was very clean and had a homey feel and a view of the ocean. Jo made fresh homemade muffins, pop overs and banana bread... More

We stayed at the High Tide at the tail end of a car-camping trip up the Maine coast and along the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick. After a week of sleeping in a 30-year-old Westphalia, we were looking forward to real beds, and a quick search of pet-friendly lodgings in the Camden area yielded the High Tide. Excellent choice....

We stayed here last September and eagerly anticipated our return last week. We were warmly welcomed by Jo, the owner, and Mike who checked us in. This year we reserved a free standing cottage for ourselves and Piper, our rescued chocolate lab.. We loved the rustic appearance and the wonderful view of the water. Wi-Fi is now available throughout the... More

We stayed in the waterfront view building. Pretty run down and I would not want to be there when the place is full because you hear all of your neighbors--both on the same level and above or below. The innkeeper is very nice, but the place really needs a lot of work to become a really pleasant place to stay.

We keep coming back for so many reasons . . . area, hospitality, relaxation, and of course the popovers. . . we prefer the cottages for their privacy . . . the rocky beach provides close views of nearby islands and local boating vessels . .

The High Tide Inn is nice, and typical for the area. Rooms are clean and comfortable. However, the inn's best feature is the innkeeper Jo Freilich. You will NEVER meet a warmer, more friendly person in the hospitality industry. That LADY is a KEEPER! She serves breakfast in a room with a nice view of the ocean & islands. The... More
