Camden is a cosmopolitan oasis on the Maine coast, filled with white people with money. But staying at the Birchwood takes any pretension right out of the visit and makes it more fulfilling than you could have imagined. If your goal is to burnish your posh cred, spend three times as much elsewhere. But if you want a great room... More

I just spent 3 wonderful days and nights in Camden, the jewel of mid-coast Maine. My trip was enhanced by my restful nights in the comfort of my room at the Birchwood Motel. The room was recently renovated, from the furniture to the bed with cozy, new bed linens, to new bathroom fixtures. It was spotless! Breakfast was a perfect... More

Well appointed motel just outside of Camden, lovely view over Penobscot bay, pleasant covered veranda with chairs outside room, organic vegetable garden , chickens, forest behind adjacent to state park. Rooms and bathroom immaculate, with good cross ventilation. Unexpected light breakfast of fresh fruit and home baking with coffee, serve yourself, and enjoy patio with morning sun. We liked it...

We just spent 2 relaxing nights at the Birchwood and were very pleased with our king room. Everything was spotless and the mattress was very comfortable to sleep on. And so many pillows! That was nice! Solar heated water was plentiful and the front porch offered a lovely view of Penobscot Bay. The property is very quiet (their check-in ends... More

We spent a terrific weekend here over the summer, and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the location convenient, the grounds lovely, even the view is gorgeous. Jenny and Eric are fantastic hosts, always helpful and passionate about their mission and location. And the price is incredibly reasonable for the area, a real find. A perfect... More

What a delightful surprise! The water is heated by solar energy and the sheets are dried in the sun for that wonderful fresher than fresh smell. The room was immaculate, the bed very comfy, lovely soft colors in the quilt and blanket. Breakfast with fresh homemade muffins and scones, fresh fruit and juice was just right. Jenny was very helpful,... More

We had a lovely three days, using Birchwood Motel as our base to explore Maine. The host, Jenny, could not have been more welcoming, gave us some great tips on where to go and where to eat etc. She was very generous with her time and also laid on coffee and home baked scones for breakfast time snacks*. For the... More

We stayed at the Birchwood Motel in September and were very very pleased. Location is good, just a little ways out of Camden. The setting is peaceful and we just wish we had more time to sit on the porch and view the ocean. Beds & pillows were great. Cute comforter. Pergo floor looked great and everything was very clean....

We ended up in this Motel unexpectedly, having had an unfortunate experience with a double booking in a B & B in Rockland. It was an evening in mid August, which is NOT a good time to be looking for a vacancy in Maine! I found this Motel in our AAA book & called them &, fortunately, they were able... More
