I was starting to loose hope in B&Bs until I stayed here. Fantastic staff, wonderful breakfast, and a superb room. The hosts were so wonderful and would do whatever they could to make the stay enjoyable. The food, oh the food! The best meals of the trip! Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

We spent a week driving up the coast of Maine, staying at various Inns and B&B's along the way - The Hawthorn Inn was the best by far! A beautiful property, huge rooms, incredible owners, great breakfast and all just a short walk from downtown Camden. Highly recommended!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the inn when we visited our daughter at camp. It was exactly what we needed! The jacuzzi tub was a nightly ritual, the breakfasts were unique, creative, and clearly well thought out, and Lisa could not have been more accommodating! Looking forward to returning next summer and no need to look further!

I have been lucky to visit the Maine Coast for several years running, and the Hawthorn Inn has just become my favorite in the Camden area after spending a great weekend here. We stayed in the Caroline room on the first floor - it is large with a nice sized bathroom. The room and bathroom were decorated well and everything... More

The inn is a lovely Victorian with a convenient location, a lovely backyard for breakfast and entertainment area and very friendly, very good service. Lisa and Ted, the owners, were very hands on and always around to help their guests. The place was sparkling clean with large comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. Blueberry pancakes one day and salmon/eggs/benedict another day..... More

My wife and I enjoyed a junior suite complete with all typical bathroom amenities. Our breakfasts were top shelf too. Ted was our gourmet chef and Lisa was the perfect hostess. The B&B library was open to all and Lisa encouraged us to borrow and keep any book we saw. Importantly too, The Hawthorn Inn was a short five minute... More

We had a great time at the Hawthorn Inn. The owners are easy going and attentivre. They accommodated our late check-in with ease. Room was comfortable, clean and cute. Breakfast was super delicious (fruit parfait and fluffy yummy pancakes). The location was ideal, it is a skip and a jump from downtown Camden. I would recommend this Inn to couples... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have such a great location. Although the majority of our guests have been couples, our large back gardens and proximity to town and Maine camps makes us a good choice for families as well. More

We stayed in the carriage house which was beautiful- jacuzzi, gas fireplace,with a private deck overlooking a beautiful back yard-and steps away from the harbor. My friend is a vegan and Ted and Lisa went above and beyond in providing meals and snacks which would satisfy her diet- with Ted providing a gluten-free breakfast and Lisa baking GF cookies. They...
