When I saw this stone "castle" through the trees as I passed by on US 1 just outside downtown Camden on my way to Bar Harbor, it totally blew me away. I vowed to stay there someday. That someday came in October 2014. Having lived in Maine as a girl, I love old houses and staying here is like stepping... More

We had an AMAZING time at the Norumbega! We spent a total of 10 days traveling the coast of Maine, and the two nights we spent at the Norumbega was one of the highlights of our trip. Miss Sue was an amazing host- she was available and attentive but also gave us the space to to enjoy the facility and... More

I proposed to my now fiance in Camden this past April. We stayed at the Norumbega Inn and couldn't have been happier. Sue and Phil were both very friendly and attentive. Sue knew the purpose of the trip and reached out to me to see if there was anything they could do to make the occasion even more special. I... More

Our family recommended this inn, based on the wonderful proprietors, the amazing ambience of the house (the views...wow), and THE FOOD!! Suffice to say - we were NOT disappointed! This house is filled with awesome surprises - sure to please all the senses. We enjoyed creative and delicious breakfasts and treated ourselves to an incomparable 7-course dinner prepared by Chef...

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
