Please allow me to gush a bit... My wife and I were fortunate enough to hear that it was possible to have dinner at the Inn, even though we did not stay there yet. It was a 60th birthday celebration for me and my wife knows a friend of Sue's. So there you have an example of not what you... More

My daughter and I were so glad we chose the Norumbega Inn over the other lodging options in Camden. For starters, the Inn is beautiful, but not so fussy and proper that you are afraid to sit down or walk around. In fact, exploring the house and its many nooks and crannies was part of the fun of our stay!... More

Sorry, this is going to be long but I think it's helpful information to know and consider when choosing a place to stay. To begin with, I wish there were more stars to give the Norumbega than just 5.

Wow! Thank you for such a thoughtful review. We loved having you two stay with us. It's always wonderful to have guests who appreciate the inn for its history and quirks, but also feel comfortable, since it is a house after all.

Husband and I just returned from a lovely trip to Maine where we stayed at this Inn. The Inn is lovely and genuinely old with all the creaks and groans that come with an old building. We stayed in the Caenarvon room on the 3rd floor (no lifts btw) which has a little Juliette balcony and a view (if you... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Norumbega Inn on our summer road trip up the coast of Maine. We chose to stay in bed and breakfasts along the way and the Norumbega Inn was certainly our favorite.

We just spent 3 nights at this magnificent inn. The architecture is stunning and mostly original but has been significantly updated and restored. We stayed in the elegant Windsor room which was on the top floor of the turret.

We stayed here for our 20th anniversary. What a beautiful place and such gracious hosts. Gorgeous 19th century castle type inn with a very talented chef as the co-owner. Recommended for special occasions, trips through Maine, and for visiting the beautiful harborside city of Camden.

The current owners acquired the Norumbega a couple of years ago and are running an outstanding inn. The quality of the breakfasts is superb and creative (other inns take note: don't give us breakfast we can make just as well at home); the guest rooms and beds are wonderfully comfortable; the bath toiletries are deluxe; the decor is a nice...

Thank you for your kind words! It's wonderful to have guests who appreciate older houses and their quirks while we continue to update its features too. We agree, when you stay somewhere, you deserve something special and out of the ordinary for breakfast. We hope we see you again soon, even if it's simply for a meal. More
