We spent two wonderful days at the Victorian by the Sea just north of Camden, ME. What a treasure. Robert and Jeanne are just lovely hosts and made our visit so pleasurable. We sat on the porch each evening sipping on a local brew and enjoying the beautiful, peaceful view of the bay with the boats sailing by. The breakfast... More

The Victorian Inn by the Sea continues to evoke the feeling of its original purpose as a restful summer home on Maine’s beautiful mid coast. Just a few miles north of Camden’s restaurants, shops, and other attractions, it seems a world away: a quiet retreat with lush trees, shrubs, flowers, and a lovely view of Penobscot Bay. Inside, the inn... More

This was mine and my husbands first time staying at a B&B so we did not know exactly what to expect....and we were so pleasantly surprised! We stayed in the cottage room which is right off the main building (but still connected). It was the cutest little room. It had a little fireplace, a comfy bed, a beautiful bathroom and... More

This beautiful Victorian Inn was the perfect location for a relaxing get away. The B & B is a quick drive to Camden but away from the noise and crowds. Jeanne, Rob, and Paula are very welcoming. The breakfasts were spectacular and so substantial we only needed a snack for lunch. We took our bikes on the ferry to Islesboro... More

Our stay at the Victorian by the Sea Ben & Breakfast was truly a bit of heaven on earth! Innkeepers, Jean, Rob & Paula were warm, friendly and gentle people always ready with information, tips and great advise. Jeanne's breakfasts were absolutely outstanding - couldn't wait for mornings to see what was on the menu for the day! The setting... More

We have stayed at a number of bed & breakfasts on the Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine coasts. This B&B is one of the best. The setting is lovely, looking out over Penobscot Bay. The 19th century, beautifully restored Victorian house is beautifully maintained, and the grounds and landscaping are very attractive. It is quiet, well off Route 1, so... More
