We came into Camden late in the day on a motorcycle trip, and were lucky to get the last room available at this lovely, upscale and comfortable inn. Lemonade and fresh homebaked cookies were always available in the lobby area. Our corner room was large (even had an upstairs sitting area) and well-appointed, with plenty of attention to detail; it... More

Norm and Linda were gracious hosts in their historic, warm and welcoming B & B. Great location! Our bed was super comfy and even the sheets were luxurious. The homemade breakfasts were simply scrumptious. We are already hoping to return next year!

The Captain Swift Inn is so charming! You can really feel the history of the place. We arrived to freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies, cold lemonade, and a very warm welcome from the hosts. We only stayed one night, but they quickly made us feel so welcomed, like personal guests in their home. We stayed in the Hunt Room, which is... More

The outstanding features of our 3 night stay were the warm and welcoming atmosphere created by Norm and Linda, all the helpful information Norm gave us and Linda's outstanding breakfasts. Our room, Greensleeves, was also comfortable and spacious (if a little dark from the trees) and it was an easy short walk into the middle of the pretty town and... More

So happy that we made a return trip to the Captain Swift Inn earlier this month. Our second stay was delightful, as was our first two years ago. Norm and Linda are most welcoming and excellent hosts. We were surprised and pleased with an upgrade to a larger room which we so enjoyed for our two night stay. The bedding... More

We only stayed one night on the way to Acadia, but had a very comfortable and welcoming stay. Norm & Linda went out of their way to help us out, from our late arrival to our need for refrigeration and ice. The room was spacious and comfortable. Being an original historic building, there was a steep set of stairs to... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights in Camden. The breakfast each morning was amazing. So delicious and plentiful. In the afternoon there was some homemade treats as well. Norm and Linda made you feel right at home. The room was absolutely beautiful with a very comfortable bed. The location was perfect to walk to everything including restaurants, shops, drug store, etc.... More

The food was delicious and not too fancy. Norm gave us some great advice to help guide us on our stay in Camden and it was helpful. The room had all the amenities we could have needed and was well stocked. The location is good. My only concern is that we had to walk outside to get to the dining... More

The accommodations are superb, the house is a true historical marvel, but best of all Norm and Linda made our 5 day stay the best family vacation we've ever taken. There are other choices of B and B's in the area but it is safe to say that the hospitality given at the Captain Swift is the best in the... More

We spent just one night here on a trip to Acadia, but would have been happy to stay longer! The hosts were gracious and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. The downtown Camden location is great - just a few blocks from the harbor, shopping and restaurants.
