Good location as you can park there and walk to town. Linda and Norm were very nice to talk with and give suggestions. Breakfast was good and plentiful. stairs up to room were very narrow so it is hard to carry big luggage up there. The room was nice and quiet.

I stayed 4 nights at the Captain Swift Inn in August 2014, and truly enjoyed my time there. There is a real sense of history at the Inn yet the rooms sparkle and Linda and Norm are wonderful hosts. I love to walk so the short walk to the harbor and restaurants provided just what I needed. The breakfasts were... More

My first review of a hotel and what a great way to start. I've been to Camden before and stayed at high end lodging (by this I mean, "expensive"). I wanted a quaint B&B and something reasonable, close to town and Captain Swift Inn fit the bill to a tee. It's everything you would want, clean, beautifully decorated, a homey... More

My mom and I stayed here for three nights for a vacation on the Midcoast of Maine. The innkeepers were great. They had umbrellas and travel guides for guests to borrow (we took advantage of both). They had good information about how to find the things we wanted to see and gave great advice about things we didn't know we... More

We had never used a B&B before so Captain Swift was our first experience and what a pleasure. Norm and Linda were wonderful. The atmosphere was exactly what we had hoped for a quaint New England get-away. The breakfasts were great, the bed was comfortable, lots of privacy and town was within a short walk. If we ever go to... More

Friendly, gracious, and knowledgeable proprietors. Delicious food. Comfortable rooms. Perfect location to walk to town. Easy parking. Convivial atmosphere. If you come to Camden, Maine (and you should), then this is the place to stay. Highly recommended.

I can't say enough great things about the Captain Swift Inn! Particularly the Innkeepers Linda and Norm! They are two of the nicest people ever. My new fiancé proposed to me the first day we arrived and Linda and Norm were so genuinely happy for us - it was so touching! They even left us a bottle of wine and... More

I chose the Captain Swift because of the price, from a huge selection of online listings. When I arrived, Norm was extremely friendly, showing me around and asking if there was anything I didn't want to see at breakfast. Not wanting to seem snooty, I said no - the truth is, I'm used to pancakes and scrambled eggs, hate vegetables,... More

My fiance and I spent 2 nights at the Inn and left wishing we could stay many more! The innkeepers were a delight and very helpful/informative about the area. The rooms and inn were cozy and quaint- yet modern enough to complete with any hotel accommodations. And the breakfasts were scrumptious and filling! We'd both highly recommend the place.
