My husband and I stayed at the Inn this summer, and we just can't say enough good things about it. Greg and Sue have just taken over the Whitehall and are doing tremendous renovations. Their goal is to make it first class in every aspect, and I'd say they are well on their way to achieving that goal. We stayed in a newly remodeled deluxe room. It had without a doubt the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in - the mattress, the bedding, the pillows - WOW. Thick, soft towels; Aquos flat panel television - it's all top notch.
We've stayed at some high-end inns/b&b's and this was the best breakfast we've had. A nice variety is available on the breakfast menu. The first day, I had scrambled eggs with basil and mozzarella cheese - simple, but with excellent ingredients (I spoke to another guest who tried the eggs as well - she just raved about them). My husband had to fend me off with a fork to keep me away from his blueberry pancakes. I'm not normally a pancake fan, but these were unbelievably light and full of blueberries.
Dinner at the inn was also treat. They've hired a new chef from a well-known local resort. I'm sure that when Fodors, etc. visits them, the restaurant will earn rave reviews. Their wine selection was both very good and very well priced.
But the best part of the Inn is the service and the atmosphere. They provide excellent service in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. It's the kind of place where you enjoy sitting on the front porch or in the "parlor", or relaxing in the bar in the evening, and talking to the other guests. We enjoyed getting to know our innkeepers and their staff as well. I'd say they make you feel at home, but that's not quite true - this is way better than home!
We're already planning a return trip to Camden next summer and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. In fact, our enjoyment of the Inn is one of the reasons we want to come back to Maine.
