I am from Maine and have stayed in all kinds of hotels, inns, b&b's in this state and the Norumbega is by far my favorite. Three of us had a private cooking class with the chef. I love to cook, to learn culinary techniques, to try new flavors and enjoy superb food and wine. The chef is a fantastic instructor... More

Chef Phil, Susan and crew graciously came to the Camden Fire station to make dinner for our Firefighters several days ago. They prepared a variety of dishes for the mix of people at the firehouse. This was probably the first time everyone was happy with the choices offered at mealtime. When you're feeling upwards of 30 Firefighters there are lots... More

Stayed here two nights and experienced a delightful and elegant weekend. We had one of the most beautiful rooms in this castle-like inn. We had free run of the chef's kitchen for coffee, tea, and freshly baked sugar cookies at any time. They served wine and munchues in the living room/parlor in the afternoon...as guests perused the many local restaurant... More

We love Camden, but this was our first stay at the Norumbega. We stayed in a turret room and also the library suite. The owner was very nice and welcoming, and it is a really neat old house with lots of nooks and crannies. The location is great too, walking distance to town and Mt Battie. Breakfasts were phenomenal and... More

I spent an unforgettable week at The Norumbega Inn. Phil isn't just a consistently terrific and creative chef, but he also has a terrific sense of humor too. Sue isn't just a helpful, thoughtful, and warm host, but she's also fun and full of joy. The food is special-- I've never had so many memorable breakfasts in a row (and... More

We happened to find this place 2 years ago when it was getting late in the day. Very nice rooms and the breakfast was wonderful. Plan to stay there again when we head to the east coast again in a couple more years. Would recommend this place to anyone.

If you are looking for a gastronomic treat in beautiful surroundings then look no further than Norumbega Inn. Contemplating a short stay in the future, we called in to pick up a brochure and saw a beautifully appointed guest room which would certainly appeal to anyone. In conversation with the owner, Sue, we discovered that, although the inn does not... More

Wow! What a fantastic stay at the Norumbega! We had the most relaxing and romantic stay in the Library Suite. My husband was like a kid on Christmas morning as he read the endless amounts of books upstairs in the loft. I, on the other hand, curled up and enjoyed the majesty of the fireplace and the charm of the... More

This was our first trip to Maine and we wanted to stay at a unique place. When we found "the castle" online we knew we had to stay there. We are very glad we did.When you check in you get a tour of the place. You'll also meet Rocco, the house dog. He even followed us up to our room... More

My wife and I visited this inn for two nights on Sept. 10 & 11, 2015. Unfortunately, we booked late and had to change rooms after the first night but the innkeeper (Sue) made this happen with absolutely no inconvenience to us. She even offered us an upgraded room (at a discounted price) in order to spare us the move.... More
