Our innkeeperr, Lisa, couldn't have been more accommodating in making our short stay a pleasant one. From activities to dinner plans to an early breakfast, everything was warmly given. The historic inn is very comfortable and charming; location is ideal for accessing the Harbour and town. Lisa's brownies are excellent!

Host Lisa extremely pleasant and informative about local area, restaurants and sights of interest, her husband Ted taking great care with breakfasts. Superb table settings. Breakfasts very good, with very imaginative presentation and variety... More

A beautiful B&B, and Ted and Lisa are wonderful hosts. It is a perfect place to unwind and relax, and it is in a perfect location to explore the harbor and Camden. The gingerbread pancakes are awesome!!

My wife and I returned to this wonderful inn and again came away completely satisfied with the experience. The owners, Lisa and Ted, clearly have a passion for running an inn and making certain that all the guests are comfortable. The location is ideal--set back from the street and just a two-minute stroll to Camden harbor. The rooms and common... More

What a delightful place to stay! The owners, Ted and Lisa, have only owned the Hawthorn Inn for a year and clearly love their new home and take great care of the house and their guests. Our room was the Turret room with lots of windows. Although the bathroom is small, the charm and character of the large room make... More

I stayed for several days. I really liked the owners, Ted and Lisa, who live on site. They were very friendly, and fixed very good breakfasts every morning. The Inn is about three blocks from the harbor and downtown - you can easily walk everywhere. The rooms were very clean and nice, and the maid service was very good. You... More

My sister and I stopped by later in the evening hoping to find a relaxing spot to relax for the night. Lisa could not have been nicer and she gave a very reasonable rate. Breakfast in the morning on the deck overlooking the lovely garden was superb ! We highly recommend the Hawthorn Inn and will go back if in... More

We have stayed in Camden many times and thought about trying the Hawthorn Inn since it is very nice looking and so close to town and the harbor. We spent two nights there in early June and loved it. It is a grand house with large rooms including the bedrooms, bath rooms and a nice garden in the back. There... More

Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback and sharing with future guests about the "private path." Our back gate is 180 steps to the Harbor edge. The back gate makes the Hawthorn Inn the closest inn to Amphitheater. More
