4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My son and I stayed for only one night, but it was a comfortable one! The Inn keepers were very friendly, and gave us advice on things to do and places to eat. The fact that the Inn is within walking distance to town is an advantage, especially as parking in the town can be difficult during the busy summer... More

My husband and I as well as our friends stayed 2 nights and both rooms were so comfortable! The breakfasts were so well balanced and delicious. The owners, Linda and Norm, were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this inn for anyone who loves to stay in B&B's! We would definitely choose to stay at this inn again.

We stayed at the Captain Swift Inn with our two daughters. They had a separate loft space to themselves while my husband and I got to enjoy the amazing king bed on the first floor. We all loved our stay at this magnificent inn, and thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed talking... More

My husband and I stayed at the Captain Swift Inn for 2 nights this past weekend in the Locke room. The room suited us perfectly but it is on the smaller side for those looking for more space. Norm and Linda were super accommodating and friendly and gave us wonderful recommendations for activities and food. They also went out of... More

Our first visit to a bed and breakfast in Camden was an enjoyable experience. We had the best time with the owners Linda and Norm. The breakfasts were delightful and plenty. The location is easy to get to, great parking, close to downtown, and they gave us some excellent ideas for activities in beautiful Camden.

Norm and Linda could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and our rooms were extremely comfortable. The delicious breakfasts could keep you fueled for the whole day, though I couldn't resist the other fabulous foods Maine has to offer.

My husband, 17 year old daughter and I stayed at the Captain Swift Inn for four nights, two in the Swift Room on the second floor and two in Hannah's Room on the first floor, both of which are in the original part of the house. Linda and Norm were gracious hosts, and have the perfect temperament to be excellent... More

The inn keepers were very friendly and available to give advice and help with luggage. The breakfast is wonderful but very large so you may not need lunch. Also there is always some sort of snack available in the afternoon. Our room was nice while on the smaller side. However the whole inn is filled with charm and unique quirks... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Captain Swift Inn for two nights last week, and enjoyed every minute. We stayed in the Swift Room, a large room on the second floor of the original house with a private bathroom, queen bed and double bed. The beds were incredibly comfortable with loads of soft pillows. The innkeepers, Norm and... More
