When we arrived, we simply gawked at this gnarly old Scottish Elm tree adjacent to the castle. It reminded us of the Whomping Willow in the Harry Potter movies. Every bit of this older place was captivating and seemed like it had its own secret...or at least a story begging to be told. Fascinating construction, with beautiful attention to detail;... More

My best friend surprised me with a girl's weekend for my birthday to The Norumbega Inn. It was the perfect place for the combination of celebration and relaxation! Sue, one of the owners, provided a warm welcoming. When we arrived and throughout our stay, a cozy fire was burning in the front parlor. Rocco, a chihuahua, was always glad to... More

My wife and I are volunteers at a food pantry in New York. At our fund raiser last year a weekend getaway at this place was put up for auction. We were told by our director that the owners of this place had attended our dinner the year before and were very generous to contribute this weekend so we thought... More

Our family Christmas present this year was a night at "the castle." I stopped off a few weeks before with the kids to surreptitiously book our rooms, and Sue offered to give us all a complete tour, including the gorgeous Library Room and the spacious Penthouse suite- Phil even threw in complimentary cookies for us all. So, when the kids... More

A castle on the scenic coast of Maine that has been given new life by innkeepers Phil and Sue. Each room has a character and charm all its own. Comfort everywhere. Great service. Amazing meals. Attentive staff. Staying at the Norumbega is like stepping back in time, and yet it has every modern convenience. We stayed in the Versailles room... More

Charming, beautiful, historic, comfortable. These describe the gorgeous Norumbega Inn in lovely little Camden. But what I will remember most, and what I will tell anyone travelling to Maine, is that the food was to die for! Chef Phil is a true artist. Our dinner upon arrival was a culinary delight but he topped that the next day with a... More

We stayed at the historic and meticulously renovated Norumbega Inn on 11/1 - 11/3, the weekend of a crazy snowstorm that left Camden with a foot of snow. But thanks to Sue and Phil, the innkeepers of this sophisticated, yet intimate B&B, they turned a stormy evening into a cozy little soiree, treating everyone that stayed there like treasured friends....

While on the outside it looks nice, be ready for a shocker when you walk into your room. An outdated bathroom, small television and zero amenities. Most of all it is unbelievable noisy, you here the cars and trucks racing over route 1 and the other guests outside your door. We stayed at many historical inn's and never came across... More

Great place to stay. Loved the location, amenities, and the staff. For an authentic Maine getaway weekend, it can't be beat. The food was excellent and we were able to walk to town to shop and enjoy Camden. It's also very close to Mt.Battie which is a beautiful place to visit

My husband and I stayed at Norumbega Inn 9/30-10/2 this year. It is often said, "A man's home is his castle", for 3 nights we felt like this was our castle! The Inn itself was beautiful and Sue and Phil our hosts made us feel right at home. Each morning we were treated to an absolute gourmet breakfast. Everything about... More
