“Perfect Country Charm Makes for a Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Recently stayed for our one year anniversary. Beautiful rooms. Charming and cozy. We stayed in the king suite with a jacuzzi tub- outstanding room size with great big beams and many windows makes it feel like a house. This was our second time visiting. Will stay again whenever we visit Camden.

Stayed June 2014

Stayed 2 nights last week. Helpful staff. Air conditioner was on the blink in the middle of the night and drive us crazy. Facilities need to be refurbished soon. Breakfast was somewhat of a disappointment.

Recently my wife and I stayed at this spacious inn in Rockport Maine. The inn is conveniently located along highway no. 1, but set back far enough that highway noise was not a problem.
Due to delays on our part we didn't arrive until midnight, and then left mid morning the next day, so we didn't really have a chance to check out local attractions.
The manager very graciously left the key out for our room. The room was very spacious, ( a suite ), with a rear access to a garden in addition to the main entry.
The room was clean and comfortable
Breakfast was very generous with a variety of items to choose from and good coffee.
We stayed there on a Groupon certificate which made the accommodation more affordable to us, but I am sure the regular rack rate is competitive, especially for what you get.
Would love to have the opportunity to stay there again.

Have stayed here before. Facility seems to have deteriorated (AAA now 2 diamonds, from 3) - experienced some maintenance issues upon arrival, which were rectified, some towels raggedy and coarse, breakfast seemed to have fewer options, while we were told prior to arrival that feather bedding is not used, came to find out that large pillows on bed contain feathers - replaced on day 2 with hypoallergenic pillows, bed was hard.

I want to thank Peter for his thoughts and comments about the Inn. I believe that the pillow issue has resulted from an "unintended consequence" . From time to time we have had specific requests from guests for feather pillows; in the interest of good service we purchased some to have on hand for special requests. I would guess that a few found there way into our normal inventory of hypoallergenic pillows, which we will endeavor to correct. Peter also points out that AAA has dropped our rating from 3 to 2 diamonds which is also correct. AAA ratings are based strictly on property style, materials, and ongoing design trends in the industry, not overall guest experience; the reduction in our rating was a result of our choices in furnishing and finishes, not property condition. I firmly believe that we offer good value and a level of caring for our guests not found at many properties; one guest indicated this when she said she had stayed at hotels all over the world and liked ours the best.

The Inn located on the outskirts of Camden and easily available to Rocklands Art galleries and Port Clydes ferry service to Monhegan Island is a find as it readily caters to family size groups with its spacious rooms with suite like space dining areas. It provide home baked goods for afternoon snacks and a interesting breakfast which is not that of a B&B but is certainly good. Its rates are not that high and its access to the abovementioned towns is valuable. Its right off the Route 1 highway and is quiet . And there is a indoor swimming pool off the entry way....and various items for sale . Staff is very hospitable.

Room Tip: Many good sized rooms...

The Country Inn at Camden/Rockport in Maine is a wonderful place to stay for business or pleasure! With a wide choice of room and housing opportunities during the summer months and great rooms for the rest of the year; I find myself returning every fall to enjoy the area and the accommodations. The suites are lovely, and spacious.

Lots of places offer a "breakfast"; but, the Country Inn offers a real "meal" as they provide selections of fruit, beverages, breads/pastries/bagels, waffles, cereals, tea and coffee (this is not the full selection)!

There is a nice indoor heated pool on site, and many local attractions to visit. I highly recommend a stay at the Country Inn at Camden/Rockport!

Room Tip: On a cooler evening in the fall or spring you can request a suite with a gas fireplace, and take the...

I am just using this particular review to thank our guests that take the time to write about the things they enjoy at the Inn. While I don't do this often enough, I want to express my appreciation for the effort. I review all reviews with staff, and I know they appreciate the kind words as well.

When I came into the lobby, I was ready not to like it. The outdated 1980s "Cracker Barrel" country theme didn't feel professional or restful to the eye.

However . . . the night was very quiet (we were off season), the bed was great (firm), and the staff was very friendly. Even made homemade cookies for us!

The room had a nice sitting area with a couch, and a little table for a working area.

The fitness center was great (displays working on the machines---not always a given), and they even have free weights, which is hard to find in most hotels. The pool is the best hotel pool I've seen in a while. Plenty long for real lap swimming--not just a "show" pool.

The breakfast was adequate. Quiches to heat in the microwave, some fancy breads . . . brunch-type fare.

All in all a restful stay.

Thank you for your insights. I appreciate the positive comments, and think that the " not restful to the eye" comment has merit; we will consider that when working on upgrading our landscaping and exterior plans. I would offer that when the Inn was constructed, we really didn't think of it in terms of "decor" which to me suggests building a box, then spraying on whatever look is desired, a Disneyland approach. While the architecture is pretty straightforward, we simply built what we thought to be warm, inviting, comfortable, homey, New England based spaces for our guests, made the more so, I think, by our staff, as mentioned.
