My wife and I are from the Portland, Maine area and stayed at Norumbega for an overnight getaway on the last day of March. When we arrived we were greeted by Sue, one of the innkeepers who made us feel welcome and showed us around the house. Norumbega, a Victorian mansion that has been converted into an inn has stunning... More

I see all the wonderful reviews and it makes us wonder if we were too critical. We stayed at the Norumbega years ago and when we learned new owners took over we gave it another try. We were not impressed. The castle is really nice as it used to be and the new owners made some improvements to the inside.... More

Staying at the Norumbega Inn has been on my bucket list for for 20 years. I surprised my husband with an over night stay in the Penthouse Suite at the very top. Chef Phil Crispo cooked us an amazing dinner (for an additional fee) and it was some of the best food we have had. We are kinda foodies and... More

We chose the Norumbega Inn for a mother-daughter reunion trip based on its exterior; we'd passed the castle many times, and we wanted to see if the interior could possibly live up to the beauty of the exterior. Well, we had no idea how good things were about to become . . . Enter to a series of wood-panelled rooms,... More

We stayed in two different rooms with views of Camden Harbor! What a magical place! All the fireplaces are so romantic. We were on a part business, part personal trip, and the team did a fantastic job accommodating our needs. Dinner was incredible, the five course tasting menu was a once in a lifetime experience! Phil is a king in... More

Warmth and Maine in February may sound like an oxymoron but the Norumbega manages to make it a reality from the minute you step in from the frigid temperatures outside. The glow of the warm wood in entrance hall and the crackling log fire made us forget immediately how cold we had been just seconds earlier. The welcome and tour... More

My Husband and I just got back from a wonderful stay(elopement!) at the Norumbega. From our arrival to our departure, every aspect of our stay was superb. Sue, Phil and Linda treated us like family and made us feel right at home. They are personable, attentive and genuinely great people. Their attention to detail is impressive. We were greeted with...

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay; Sue and Phil and their staff made us feel like we were old friends visitng for the weekend. The Norumbega is beauftiful, inside and out, and we loved our panoramic view of Penobscot Bay from the Balmoral Room. Phil dazzled us with his wonderful breakfasts (smoked local Ducktrap River salmon omelet and apple and... More

Camden Maine was our first stop on a 5-state tour of antiquing. We were treated as visiting royalty by the staff of Norumbega, enjoying the warmth of the welcome and the fantastic inside comfort of the castle's beautiful woodwork, delightful rooms, vintage pocket doors, and great view. The inn is close in to town, multiple antique malls and shops, and... More

I would highly recommend the Norumbega! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had a small issue with the heat in our room as it was one of the first cold nights here in Maine. Sue and Phil went above and beyond to assist us and moved us ( to a fantastic room) immediately. They had exceptional service and... More
