My husband and I first visited Hartstone Inn & Hideaway a couple of years ago when our children were finally old enough to feel comfortable leaving them for a long weekend with a babysitter. Upon pulling into the parking lot at Hartstone, we knew this location would be a favorite for many years to come. From the warm welcome, to... More

We spent two wonderful nights in late November at the Hartstone and I would recommend it to any couple. The accommodations are varied and all wonderful and the food is marvelous. Love the town of Camden, particularly as you get close to Christmas.

We spent our entire Christmas holiday at the Hartstone Inn, 10 days in fact and it was magnificent. We came to Camden for quiet and that is precisely what we found in a beautiful suite that had enough space for both my husband and I to feel we had room to breathe. Michael and Mary Jo have created a great... More

What a nice surprise. Drove to Camden, ME from RI and found this gem of a B&B with the most unbelievable food coming out of that kitchen! We were upgraded to a suite in an outbuilding with a gas fireplace and a bottle of wine! Camden Market right down the street carries gourmet take out and there's fantastic shopping right... More

We recently stayed at the Hartstone Inn for the tenth time in the past five years. We love it there! The setting, the hospitality, the rooms, the amenities, the location, and the FOOD are second-to-none. The Inn is very much a part of the beautiful village of Camden, and yet, it offers seclusion and relaxation as well. The breakfasts are... More

This IS as the name suggests...a hideaway just steps from Camden's center village so you can easily enjoy its charms. Comfortable accommodations and a delicious breakfast. We enjoyed the French toast...custardy and melted in the mouth. We don't remember staying at another place where the room was tidied and towels replaced by the time returning from breakfast. Scheming a return... More

This was out 10th trip to this wonderful inn. We have stayed at the inn every December since 2008 (except 1). A mini getaway to escape the stress of the holidays by relaxing and enjoying chef Michael Salmon's 5 star culinary experience. Its no wonder he was one of Julia Child's favorites! Mary Jo, Michael and the inn's amazing staff... More

Hartstone Inn & staff, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! I have visited the Inn several times over the last couple of years and have shared three very special Christmas Holidays with the Innkeepers, Michael and Mary Jo. Chef Michael who is very well known for his culinary expertise prepares a special and delicious menu for... More

This weekend was our fourth Christmas celebration at the Hartstone for my wife and I. The food is exceptional and so are the rooms and amenities. The staff are all so welcoming. Mary Jo and Michael set high standards for hospitality and we love our stays at the Inn. Thank you so much!

We have stayed here 3 times over the past 2 years. We have stayed in different rooms. All have been comfortable and welcoming. It is the food that keeps bringing us back. You can not beat the quality of the food and the excellent service. Love their spiced bacon at breakfast. The sirloin steak I had on our last visit... More
