Looks good from the outside, like a historic inn and the building does date to 1810. But most of the rooms are in two additions from 10 and 20 years ago. Our room was up a steep flight of steps in one of those additions, still close enough to US-1 that road noise (until late at night) was distracting. Our... More

After a 7 hour drive, we were welcomed at the B&B with coffee/snacks waiting at the entrance. We were then introduced to our extremely cozy room. The Captain Swift was a perfect location; just a few minutes walk to the little village with shops/restaurants, etc. After breakfast Saturday morning, Norm gave us a map and highlighted some sights to see...

Picture this - walking distance from all that the interesting village not Camden has to offer, with hospitality way over the top. Host Norm made us feel so welcome, beautiful room, unexpected nice touches such as coffee and cake as you arrive, bottled water, fridge and ice available, and help with activities and things to do (golf for us).

There are returns and there are returns. Many disappoint. This one does not. For several years, we have made a point of staying with Norm and Linda at the Capt. Swift Inn because of their unparallelled service and facility. This is just a wonderful B&B, hands down. You are close to so much to do and see and of course,... More

A truly exceptional experience. In Camden for the POPTECH conference, I stayed here for 4 nights. The owners were adorable : both helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were incredibly delicious (yogurt and muesli parfaits, pancakes, omelets ... ) and the bed comfortable! What a great experience!

Exceptional experience. Greeted at the door, given a tour of the Inn, Room was awesome, breakfast was even better. Linda and Norm really know how to run an Inn, they believe in providing exceptional service at an great price. You are going to love your stay at Captain Swift Inn.

We stayed for one night at the Captain Swift Inn in Camden. Parking lots are right beside the B&B. Our room was clean and big, we had our own gas fireplace and a good wifi connection. The window A/C was next to the bed (bedhead) and the cold air that came through (yes, it was turned off) the window or... More

I stayed at the historic Captain Swift Inn with my brother. We felt at "home" the moment we arrived. Linda and Norm are the best innkeepers we have ever met. Our stay started with a front door greeting from Linda with some fresh cider and homemade cookies. The rooms were amazing....absolute comfort in the beds with plenty of space in... More

We arrived at Captain Swift Inn greeted by Linda & Norm's smiling faces. The rooms are wonderful and very clean and comfortable. There were 7 of us and they did not hesitate to help all of us. Norm was such a great help with the many suitcases that had to be unloaded and brought to the rooms. Linda provides the... More

This place deserves more than 5 stars...although the thing that makes this place UNIQUE are the Innkeepers, Linda and Norm. We have never met such warm and hospitable people as these two. Every request was met with a warm smile. Every afternoon there were goodies such as cookies, cake, lemonade, coffee, tea, bottled water ...a nice touch after a long... More
