Camden is such a pretty little town. I wish we stayed here longer but the one night we spent at Captain Swift Inn was absolutely wonderful. Linda & Norm were gracious hosts. The breakfast was delightful and filling. Their dog Ajax made our stay so very memorable....we had lots of fun playing with him! The rooms were clean and well... More

My husband and I stayed at the Captain Swift Inn for 3 nights during our honeymoon. It is a very nice and cozy place. We walked downtown in just a couple minutes. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast full of fresh fruit. The family that owns this place does a great job keeping everything clean and pleasant. I would... More

My wife and I stayed at the Captain Swift for just one night prior to taking a cruise on a Maine windjammer( Angelique- also great but the subject of another review). The inn was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the hosts Linda and Norman work very hard to make their guests stay perfect. Breakfast, as reported in other reviews was... More

Great location, nice room and breakfast is tasty… pleasant find and will return because, just a 5 minute walk to downtown Camden. How can you beat that? The innkeepers are extremely nice and helpful. Wireless available but was down the whole time we were there.

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
