We have just spent 2 weeks in Maine and Massachusetts staying at 8 different B&Bs, inns and hotels from $168 to $615 a night and this was far and away the best in terms of value, comfort, cleanliness, location and friendliness of the hosts. The Swan House is like a cosy Swiss chalet in a lovely quiet spot among the trees at the foot of Mt Battie (we climbed it from the B&B before breakfast) yet just minutes away from the centre of Camden (10 mins on foot, 2 by car) but without the traffic noise of other B&Bs. We had a huge beautiful room with 2 queen beds (we had our 21yr old daughter with us), private bathroom, sofa, tables, chairs and fridge, patchwork quilts, fantastically comfortable and space to spread all the stuff from our six heavy bags! Lyn and Ken were absolutely delightful, charming and informative hosts and the breakfasts were the biggest and the best we've ever had. Lyn is a true star in the kitchen - heavenly homemade granola, hot muffins, pancakes, baked eggs, crispy bacon, french toast and luscious fresh fruit salads. And then she packed up extra muffins , biscuits and granola for us to eat on our onward journey. We had only booked for one night but it was so good here that we decided to book again for a night on our way down from Northern Maine a week later and when I went to pay after the first night Ken said "oh, don't worry, you can settle up when you come back next week" so that's what we did - but what trust! Lyn and Ken are a lovely gentle, softly spoken, delightful couple and I have to say that I think the ridiculous comments in some other reviews say much more about the writers' own personality problems than they do about the Swan House - and one in particular suggests he has spent more time in institutions other than B&Bs.
