From the phone call making the reservation to the check-in, Jennie, the innkeeper, was welcoming, outgoing and personable and then offered excellent dinner choices in Camden. After a full day on the road, the Birchwood offered a quiet, spotless, and comfortable room complete with beautiful quilted bed, updated bathroom and free, fast wifi. View of the islands and bay across... More

Pros Beautiful setting, back from highway, big lawn in front. Old-fashioned motel style, so no halls, one floor, convenient. Nice décor—a bit Queen Ann or Victorian, homey. Remodeled in recent years with some new fixtures. Free wifi a very fast 17 Mbs, versus 2 or 3 Mbps at most motels. Mini frig included, but no coffee maker nor microwave. Instead... More

I stayed in a single queen bed motel room the last weekend in September. It's right on Rt.1/Belfast Rd. There's an individual table and chairs on the lengthwise front porch so each unit has an eastern view of the Ocean across the road. Great for watching the sun rise for the early or the moon rise at dusk. I was... More

What a surprise. This little motel, just outside Camden Maine has a perfect location on Maine's gorgeous coastline. The innkeepers' hands on approach is very evident in the spotless, comfortable and charmingly appointed guestrooms. A view of the water and the most delicious pumpkin scones ever were just two of the surprises this special motel offers. And the rate is... More

This is a lovely motel, quiet and esthetic, just enough out of the Camden Main Street touristy area for calm and close enough to Mt. Battie and downtown to really enjoy. We loved the home-made blueberry scones at breakfast, the chairs on the patio.

We stayed in the apartment above the main house over Labor Day weekend, It is a 2 bedroom apartment with everything you could ask for. We cooked dinners in the full kitchen and a continental breakfast of home naked goods comes with the stay. The property is gorgeous. The apartment has an amazing view of Penobscot Bay as well as...

Jen and Eric do an exceptional job, the rooms are comfortable (spotless) and relaxing. The front porch with its flower boxes and view of the ocean is an added plus. We enjoyed walking through the backyard garden filled with flowers, fruits and vegetables. In the morning we were pleasantly surprised with fresh grounded coffee, fresh fruit, juice and homemade scones.... More

How would you like to stay on a farmette with chickens, a huge vegetable garden, a berry garden, fruit trees and flowers spilling all over? Yes. Birchwood Motel is actually just like that at a really nice motel. They offer home baked scones with berries from the garden at breakfast, and the staff (actually just wife, husband and cleaning lady)... More
